Descent 3 songs may be bad
« on: January 13, 2011, 10:48:19 AM »
This could easily be on my side. I don't know. When listening to my MP3 player, both tracks stopped at 1:24, Pink Slip (Mercenary Level, 5 I believe. and the original D3 game, Evidence (10).
Seems like a string of them worked, except for the last two in the list, which are the two that went back. if anyone can verify it for me, I'd appreciate it. thank you.

did you get them here?  On PD.com there were samples that short.  Or could be a corrupted download.

I downloaded this last night, here at PD.net. I did have these a while ago. I don't think they were faulty. I don't know what happened to the files I downloaded a while back. I did a lot of cleaning and my theory is, I accidentally deleted them. I assume at times, they're in my MP3, so I delete old copies, yada yada yada.. anyways,

I downloaded them last night. I have been playing music on it, like other songs (non-descent related), and they worked, the whole track even.

But here, I am getting some odd errors, and odd times:

Level 10 (Evidence) stops at 1:24
Merc 5(?) Pink Slip is at 1:24
Merc 6 (conveyor) is 7:11
merc 7 (Successor) is 7:11

I have to clean out the Descent music in my mp3, or organize it. I have music in different folders. I'll check again later tonight at home. but I thought I'd point this out, just in case it's not on my end.

I just now downloaded Evidence, it plays to 8:33.  You got a bad download, it happens.  Try again.

Edit: Pink Slip plays to 8:55.

I tried evidence just now as well, and it played past 1:24. must have a bad download, or moved files over, and accidentally started to again on some things.

sorry to have been a bother. I'll try more once I get home.

Yeah, I've had this happen to me before. For reasons I can't explain, every now and down, music files such as that that I download get cut short, but a re-download of the file fixes it.  :-\

It happens for me, especially with the bigger music files, ex. the D3 music files. It'll end up cutting off at 1MB for an 8MB file. Make sure nothing else is downloading at the same time. ;D
