Almost 3 years to the day ago we had our post discussing new changes to the release formats: some major, some minor. Well, one of those changes we discussed was "No more 'Fix' releases" with the note of "barring some sort of major catastrophic typo ...". Well, it's been 3 years and we've had some sloppy releases, a few typos and a few issues that we haven't bothered posting fixes for but we do have one worth mentioning now...
The Final Fantasy X HD Original Soundtrack we released in the "Final Fantasy MEGA UPDATE!!" has a completely wrong track in it. This would be a good definition of "catastrophic".
Track 67 (1067 Hymn - Bahamut.mp3) is in fact not Bahamut's Hymn, it is Anima's Hymn (track 1086 Hymn - Anima.mp3). The fixed version is available here: http://videoff7.free.fr/gmp3s/1067%20Hymn%20-%20Bahamut.mp3
Simply delete the old 1067 and replace it with the file above and that's all you have to do. If you are currently seeding the old torrent version I would stop seeding it altogether, or if your client has the ability to not seed specific files, exclude 1067. Otherwise you might end up redownloading the wrong version again~
How did this happen? Well, to make a long story short these Bluray "albums" are terribly indexed and not anything like a CD, so a 104 track album like FFX HD has something like 200+ indexes, often times with different indexes pointing to the same track. Those are all separate containers and I had to manually identify them, then name and number them.
Many thanks to Bayne for pointing this out in the comments section, apologies for the mistake! If there are any other catastrophic issues like this please feel free to leave us a comment or a message.
Since this is not really a release update, it's also a good time to remind people that we are (still) on IRC and we are also still on Discord (http://www.gamemp3s.net/2015/12/11/join-us-in-trying-out-discord/). Feel free to stop by and hang out/idle with us!

2/11/2012 Update: Adam caught a vocal track in Wangan 4 that was missing a composer. I've updated that track along with the M3U and SFV and you can find the fixed files here. I also created a new "Updates" category on the sidebar that will help people find updates to releases we make. The archive torrents are still the best way to get all the updated and fixed files.
It's the first release of 2012! Prepare to get bodied by 14 albums including another edition of more stuff we should've released last year.
First up is the Armored Core V Original Soundtrack with music by Kota Hoshino, Yoshikazu Takayama, Tsukasa Saitoh, and Hideyuki Eto. Following that is BlazBlue in L.A. Vocal Editon with music from the original game by Daisuke Ishiwatari but now with all new vocals! Vocalists include Jamison Boaz, Greg Reynard, Dale Paris Sanchez, N.I.N.A., and Jason C. Miller. Next is the Chaos Code Original Soundtrack composed by MintJam, nekono, Kou, -45, and Cheng. Cyber Troopers ''Virtual-On'' Original Sound Track is a reprint of the original album by Kentaro Koyama with an all new arrangement from [H]. We also got more SEGA music with the Gunblade NY & L.A. Machineguns Original Soundtrack.

The SEGA music love continues with the Rad Mobile Original Soundtrack and SEGA Sound Unit [H.] 1st Album. This album from [H]. features some great arrangements from classic SEGA games After Burner, Virtual-On, Outrun, Burning Rangers, and more. We follow up that with the awesome Sonic Generations Original Soundtrack Blue Blur. Jun Senoue is back again along with Naofumi Hataya, Richard Jacques, Tomoya Ohtani, Cash Cash, and others.

Finally, it's the Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune 4 Original Soundtrack with the one and only Yuzo Koshiro.
Just a quick note that going forward we will be utilizing the Album Artist tag on all of our releases. Previously we left this tag null, but after meeting with the team it was decided that this would be useful for various portable music devices and so forth. So Album Artist will equal Artist except when there is more than one. In which case the Album Artist tag gets populated to "Various Artists". In the spirit of election season, I created an unscientific poll to provide your thoughts on the sidebar. However please feel free to leave any additional feedback you have in the comments below.
