Unable to download neither wav or mp3 version. Opens to a dead link.

LOVE this!!

Hey, there's a link next to the album pic:

"Download full album: Wav (or) Mp3"

EDIT: Never mind, I should have tried it first.
You can listen to, but not save the files

I was able to download the songs individually but not the entire album (dead link)

Worked for me. The links for the full album download don't work, so you have to do as the OP said and download each track individually.

All tracks worked except track 25. Initially I thought it worked, but upon further inspection the track title differed from the default file name and the track length could not be determined. It turns out the file size was only 4.00 kB (typical for File Not Found errors). I also tried the WAV of track 25; same issue. Otherwise, the rest worked well and sound good.

@zerrick: You actually downloaded the files??
I know you can play them, they open in a new window.
Stream only. No right click option to "Save as"

@danieleg: Yup, downloaded all 50... er, 49 of them. FWIW, I'm using Google Chrome browser. Right-clicked on the Note thing in the MP3 column, went down to Save Link As..., went with the default name to save time and threw them all in a folder to match my music folder structure.

Let me know if you're still having trouble.

Everything's smooth sailing over here with DownThemAll under Firefox 12, aside from track 25 (which they seem to have misnamed in the link). It's possible they'll fix #25 in a bit.

I'm just getting a "500 Internal Server Error" on the entire website.

@jsfs: You're right. The file is available, but the link for it is wrong. I wrote out the link manually using the file name and one of the other working links as a template. Got track 25 that way.

The "Save Link As..." method should work with this link for track 25.

I just got all of them plus the link above in the comments to track 25 is working . . . went poking around their site for more, and now all I get are 500 errors (internal server errors) for every page . . . did they lock it up?? LOL

vote-for1vote-against

@danieleg: downloaded them all in firefox 11. over on the right side of the screen are two little mp3 and WAV icons next to each track. Right click and save as.

ALSO, everyone interested, make sure you get the other 50 as well...

that deal was getting folded into this one so everyone seems to be missing it. Maybe because it looks so similar.

vote-for1vote-against

Are these the full pieces? Files look awfully small and listed as very short times. Wondering if this is just a sample of the files?

You can also download "The Greatest Video Game Music" as performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra here:

The first time I tried this page (in IE8) there was a text entry box and it said the page was password protected. Now I get a 404 error.

Trying it with FF10, I also get a 404 error.

I assume this is just an April Fool joke.

vote-for1vote-against

@crowbite: not sure why it's not working for you, but it is absolutely not an april fools day joke.
@mschauber: 4-9 MB is typical for a 192 kbps bitrate mp3.

edit: just clicked and the page now looks totally different. I guess they either had a time limit or made a mistake with the free DL's. I'll expire the deal.

@zerrick: I am getting a 500 error for both links you posted.

vote-for1vote-against

If it really worked for you then they must have taken it down recently. Too bad!

"ERROR 404"

I am using Chrome also.
I cant try again because the page is down.
Edit to add: "Error 404" with IE browser too

vote-for1vote-against

Too bad because those samples sounded REALLY good.
Very rich sound for digital.

Well then, we just need someone to post the 50 files on here. ;-)
