Old games that had CD Audio tracks?

Getting old DOS games working on modern hardware. (DOSBox topics belong in DOSBox areas below, not here).

Grand Prix 2 doesn't have cd audio, I even checked my own original copy. Then I checked redump too and none have any extra tracks.

I know the Activision games Interstate '76 and the Mechwarrior games you could play the music in a CD player. I think StarSiege has this as well.

by the way, DOSBox is not for running Windows 9x

So is this list for 'any game that had at least one redbook audio track on the disc' or 'games that actually played redbook audio tracks for in game music'?

Colonization


That was only the (comparatively rare) Windows version. The DOS version just used FM or MIDI.

King's Quest 6 - Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow (not used for Sound Blaster 16)


This was only used in the final credits. (That awful 'girl in the tower' song).

Rise of the Triad


I don't think this is correct, I had a CD copy of this and there were no redbook audio tracks on it - all in game music was MIDI or FM. I believe there was a number of different releases of this game so I suspect there may have been a version with some promo audio track on it.


Return to Zork


Interestingly (or not?) this game used a mix of both synthesized tracks (MIDI or FM) and redbook audio. There was about 20 redbook audio tracks on the CD and you could play them on the radio in the Inn of Isenough hotel room. Certain screens had redbook audio music, and certain screens only had synthesized music.

Sam 'n Max


This included 4 redbook audio versions of some songs used in the game but they were not actually played in game, instead only synthesized versions were used.

Using Hexen as a reference, it may be for a version that had the Sound Canvas soundtrack recorded and added as Redbook audio. That's how my copy of Hexen did it, I can choose Redbook as an explicit audio option, but it sounds pretty much exactly like my SC-55.
