Being put together and run by the guys behind ThaSauce with input from Jake.

That's awesome. I wasn't around at the time of VGmix, but I'm looking forward to the resurrection. :)

when this is all up and running, someone needs to put an altered beast mix there just because of this

I still have some old VG Mix songs. In this list below they are listed. The list also contains OC Remixes and some WIP versions. The Song Name, Artist and Game (abbreviated) are listed and it might contains some mistakes. It's uploaded to my site.

I have all these songs somewhere, most of them likely are on old CD's. So if anyone wants some of the songs I'll try to upload them somewhere, but it might take some time.

You should see about sending these to Rama so he can put them in the archive: http://vgmixarchive.com/

My collection seems to contain a couple of songs which are not on this torrent. I'm currently downloading the torrent (didn't realize this was up before) but it's not downloading anything (there are not enough seeders at the moment, I think).

There's one problem with adding these songs to that torrent. This torrent only contains song from Vgmix. My list contains all VG stuff I have somewhere and this is not only from Vgmix. It contains stuff from OC Remix, the WIP forum of OC Remix, Vgmix and many other sites. They are not even all VG Remixes (for example it contains a remix from Delerium - Silence by FF Music DJ).

I do have a good memmory, so I'll see if I can check out where these songs from, but of course I might be wrong.

I'm seeding the torrent now, though I'm not connected to any peers. I'm not sure if demonoid's trackers are still running (the site itself is obviously gone), so I may have to find a new solution.

You're right, though. The #1 problem with having people contribute songs is that many people don't know if their songs are from VGMix or not. A lot of people just keep all their songs together. I do have a Google Drive set up if you want access just shoot me an email or catch me on IRL.

The most complete list we have for VGMix 2 is here:

Also this:

And this is by no means a full list, but it's the best we can realistically get.

VGMix was my first exposure to game remixing and inspired me to make my own, even though they were horrible. Glad it's coming back.

I may consider coming back. I've made some great stuff while on hiatus. Plus I'm moving to more electro house spoken word while ditching hip-hop altogether.

Demonoid is gone and the trackers for it won't work anymore. :cry: In fact it's probably safer to not even be trying..

Not sure if serious?

In any case, I'm seeding right now and at least 1 person is downloaded from me directly, so the torrent definitely works still in some capacity.

Going to work with Mark on the possibility of getting ThaSauce's tracker back up to take care of our various BitTorrent needs, including VGMix Archive, but that'll take some time.

He is. Demonoid got screwed during the summer of last year. The tracker seems to be up-and-down lately.

I have checked (and updated) the list. I added a row in which is mentioned whether the song is from Vgmix or not. Only if I am for 100% sure that the song is from Vgmix it has the Vgmix label. 110 Songs it are (a few from Vgmix 1 as well). Some of these are already in the Archive, others are not.

I'll see if I can put those in a download link (at least the ones who are not in the Archive) later.

I posted my VGMix songs on http://olremix.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=9711 ... well, with one known exception. I have absolutely no idea what happened to Top Gear 2 Nitro Thunder, which showed up just before the site went down (I did find out via screenshot after six years of completely forgetting about it). I actually don't recall the final track names for some of these because I sometimes came up with them right on the spot. Except for Top Gear 2 Nitro Thunder (which has me perplexed at the moment), I still have my source .mus files on the condition that they were made past September 2005. Otherwise, it was made using a trial version of Harmony Assistant, and thus were made in a single day (which can explain the terrible quality on some of these). I have eight source .mus files made in Harmony Assistant, the majority of them having been worked on past the day VGMix went down. Not a single one of my VGMix songs were made using Schism Tracker, because it pre-dates when I actually abandoned Harmony Assistant, although I did create a few Schism Tracker songs.

It also contains a good chunk of my Versus Compo remixes (I have lost the source .it files to a good majority of them due to a hard drive crash in mid-August 2008. Plus, I don't even have some of my own released material anymore due to the same reason. However, I do have both of my Sawtooth the Radical Beaver material, which were the ones that would have been the rarest across the board, as hackers took down the website before voting could begin.), as well as a couple of misc. remix material which I don't recall were for any of these compos in particular.

That list that you have only includes what looks like the good material. My material, with the exception of the very last one (which I have no idea what happened to it), isn't that good and didn't make the top tiers, yet I still consider it VGMix material, as it was the very first place where I could remember posting my music with a couple of exceptions.
