    Well no, but it's easier to directly attach it to your post - if you don't want to convert it to mp3 you can put it in a zipped folder like Element of Water suggested

    You can convert it into OGG and not lose any valuable quality in the audio.

    Songs in WAV formats are very tedious for downloaders (specially they who don't have epic internet connections) because they have way more filesize than OGG and MP3.

    You need a special player to play Oggis Vorbis files, they currently aren't accepted for that reason

    And players like Winamp, Foobar2000, Media Player Classic and XMPlay plays OGG files very fine.

    Nobody gives a shit about sound quality (difference between a wav and 160 are not very noticable, really)

    I'll bring up the possibility of a second thread of a mod, but this is working fine for now

    It won't be that fine, this is hardly started, wait one month (even more, as it was meant to finish in march) and see what happens...

    Ok, in a burst of inspiration, i started a totally new song. If i can make it better (and find a suitable race), i think that'd be my entry.

    anyway, since the server is busy i wanted to write this reply before i can't access it again (been doing that to me for the last few hours... seems i'm out of luck)

    Oh, and it really reminds me of another song. I don't know which one, but i bet there is another similar song. If anyone can find it, post it so i know if it is too similar >.<

    It overall seems like a final fantasy type music.

    Not needed in Foobar2000. And I doubt codecs are needed in the other players I've mentioned.

    Well the original intention was to make all accepted formats work in standard media players - the type that you know anyone who owns a computer has, like Windows Media Player

    Hey, Itunes sucks but It's widely used and accepted. The main thing is that everyone has windows media player (I'm not too sure whats the mac equivalent), I would suggest Winamp anyways, even if it's just for the amazing visualizations it comes with.
