Hmmm...
This page is a work in progress.

To do:
  • Need to add the audio files.
  • Need to add the missing information to the table.
  • Find better names for the tracks.

Read this before using the table:

Variation:
*0: - (music is not affected)
*1: gun (game calls it that)
*2: board (game calls it that)
*3: mech (game calls it that)
*4: Dark Jak
*5: Zoomer
*alert: Alert is not really a variation. It is rather an alternate track within the same file, but we put it in this column because we did not have any better ideas.

Danger level:
*0: 0 - 24 (music is not affected)
*1: 25 - 49
*2: 50 - 74
*3: 75 - 100
It is a value that increases when more enemies are nearby, the music is affected at the values specified above.

Identical files are grouped.

156 total unique tracks.

All the music in the table below was composed by Josh Mancell.

BATTLE.MUS/DANGER2.MUS

High Alert - -
no Only DANGER2.MUS can be triggered in the game, but it was not intended to play. It can still be played in the game only because the devs forgot to remove some of its triggers. This music was used as a placeholder for areas that did not have music yet. It is named High Alert because that is what some people call it on YouTube (do not look for sense behind this name).
