Having finally gotten around to trying MoA and LD I was blown away by how good most of the soundtrack is. I previously modded the Roses and Wine mod of Final Fantasy VIII to use lossless versions of the music from the Japanese CDs, and would like to make a similar mod for the Sunrider games. Unpacking and repacking the .rpa archives seems simple enough. The next issue is finding lossless versions of the music used, assuming it exists in the first place.
Is there a list of all of the tracks used in each game? I think I remember seeing it scroll by in the credits so it seems like a list would be on a wiki somewhere, but I didn't find it. My search engining brought me here when looking for such a list. Or...you know...you guys could simply sell a lossless soundtrack on Steam and I could give you money for it...either way... (Icari pointing) I- It's not like I would want to listen to it anyway! Idiot!
With the exception of the opening and endings songs, which Love in Space commissioned the Japanese indie band Iced Blade to create, I'm fairly sure that pretty much all of the music in the series is public domain or open source, meaning they can't sell a soundtrack.
As for accessing the music, MoA's soundtrack is right there in the sources files: Sunrider/game/Music. You'll need something that can run .ogg files, though. I know Adobe Audition works, but I'm not sure what else can be used.
Liberation Day's music is packed in an rpa somewhere, but you can see the names of the tracks in the in-game music player accessible from the main menu.
Finally, the soundtracks of each game are freely available on YouTube.

Key word: lossless. I can extract the lossy junk .ogg files no problem. I'm looking to get original FLACs or WAVs before they were transcoded into .ogg (thus destroying the sound quality) and then insert the WAVs into the game.
magicdragon: Yet in the first Sunrider Sola says "The Emperor and the Crown Prince were killed in an assassination, leaving the throne to my father, the second prince."

Sorzo: It also randomly says she engages in drinking. 0_o

Sorzo: Those descriptions in the vndb profile sound familiar, and I know at least parts of them are from the LD site bios.

Sorzo: However, the part of Sola's bio I was referring to is missing.

Sorzo: I'm 100% positive that Sola's LD bio mentioned the events of Academy Sola's story.

magicdragon: Looks like whoever did the bio's just cut and paste drinking, fighting for everyone...except Kryska.

Nemjen: From a desc point of view the current version are mostly word for word from that product page with the odd update that contains the same flow but sometimes moves a few words around to make it more clear, eg Claude's profile says ryder rather than Bianca.

Nemjen: I'll have a dig and get back to you though on what I find about an inclusion of a Sola route Academy description as the website is fairly unstable currently.

Nemjen: Here it is, dug up what is likely nagging to be remembered in the back of your head. You can use www.rot13.com/ to convert it back into English. I personally think its misleading considering Sunrider Academy (what we play) is

Nemjen: not considered to be canon (although containing relevant details a bit like REturn) but I suppose without seeing things from the perspective of mainline Sola it is not possible to fact check on what has and hasn't been reflected in the main universe
