I‘m currently only on my phone and it won‘t let me upload more photos because of the filesize being too big, i try to post more photos of it when i get home if anyone is interested. I also have them in my dropbox if anyone wants to check them out :roll:

Great work, it looks really nice. The booklet and everything looks very professional.

Thank you very much! Does anyone on this board have the soundfiles in better quality? My only problem is that i ripped the files myself years ago. I don‘t even know how i did it but some files have noticable clipping sometimes. I know when i ripped the soundfiles i had to play around with frequency and bit rates or something like that and i never figured out the right frequency. Maybe someone has successfully extracted the sound files or knows how to get them. I love listening to the surdana and dessert theme, unfortunately the highs and mids tend do sound a bit distorted.

Unfortunately the sound quality on the original game DVD were in very poor quality. Low bitrate and in mono as well I think. Erik Aho sent me an email a while ago with a link to the original files but that link does not work now. I can't remember if I updated the ones on my website or if they are the originals I ripped or not. Anyway here's the link if you want to see what the quality is like.

You did it well. It'll be nice when you will make in this same fashion CD to Drakan OOTF :) As I fan of Drakan I would think it's the work of the game's creators. I particularly liked the manual and description of the game. :)

Hey there! :)
Sorry first for not even logging in or responding like almost a year! This artwork for the soundtrack was basically practice for my new job i got around this time then. I just wanted to get in touch again with Photoshop and Illustrator, as i have to use these applications now in my daily work routine. Thank You to everyone who appreciated it.
Unfortunately i will not make this again for Ootf as i never really played this game.... and also there’s basically nothing to fill a full booklet for a disc. TAG on the other hand used to be a major part of my childhood back then and that‘s why i decided to give it a try.
Also it was a pain in the ass to even find high res images of the game. Most of the wallpapers and screenshots were really low res unfortunatelly... and google images was not that helpful in most ways....
Just wanted to share this with anyone interested. Happy new Year everyone. Cool this website is still online. I have such beautiful memories for this game! I was like exploring the whole world and all of its glitches and bugs back in the day for hours. I Might also share these images if anyone is interested in that sort of thing. I think i have all of it still saved somewhere...
