After more than two decades, I just FINALLY got around to ripping all of Accolade's "HardBall 5" MOST EXCELLENT in-game music to WAV files, and will be encoding them to MP3 files ASAP... WOOHOO! 😀

For a *LIMITED TIME ONLY*, snag it while it's hot... the MIDI music from Accolade's "HardBall 4", and the WAV music from Accolade's "HardBall 5" right here -> www.bhservices.us/weeds/Temp/HardBall_4 ... _Music.zip 😀

Why did I include the music from both games? Simply because the WAV format music in HardBall 5 was recorded from many of the MIDI tunes from HardBall 4. Note that the filenames in the ZIP used for the MIDI files compared to the filenames for the WAV files do not match (i.e. "HB4_01.MID" is NOT the same song as "HB5_01.WAV"), as I was too lazy to listen to and compare all of the tunes in order to match up all of the filenames <grin>.

Anyhow, the WAVs from HardBall 5 is something that I have been meaning to rip for over two decades now, and just FINALLY got around to doing 🤣!

P.S. Does anyone have any idea what MIDI hardware that Accolade used to record the HB4 MIDI files to WAV files for use with HB5?

Those guitars in the WAV versions sound a bit too good to be stock GM recordings...

I was thinking the same thing myself, especially considering the available MIDI hardware for the era. But, the MIDI files that have a matching WAV file sound extremely close as far as their composition.
