MMX1 however was less good as I find the musical remixes less fitting, too much hardrock-guitars style for MMX1. (This style of music would have fit MMX3's soundtrack, hironically.) I really think using Teck's remixes would be better but I think it is possible and rather easy to change this.

Another option would be to ask Teck directly about the hack, because I'm sure he's interested, and he could provide the missing tracks (he did almost the entiere MMX1 soundtrack, except the password/ending/etc...)

I was considering doing an alternative Mega Man X PCM set (Or swaps for specific tracks) myself due to my own opinions on the tracks. I'd gladly help out on this if anyone's willing to make it a cooperative matter. Time for me to dig around the net for lossless album sets, I guess. I myself tend to like finding officially-licensed/released arrange albums, because I imagine that's what Capcom would actually have put in the game if they had released it in that manner at the time, so I suppose I should ask, do you think this album would have any "worthy" tracks?

So we're just entirely pretending that copyright doesn't exist now, right? 'Cause distributing this would be piracy, even in patch form, since it contains the copyrighted music.

I'll admit I wasn't exactly thinking too hard about copyright issues regarding that music. That being said, this is part of the discussion phase, it's not like I've already generated PCMs of the albums in question. (I'd probably need to end up purchasing them to begin with, anyway, considering how few people actually rip music in a lossless encode nowadays.)

If you're worried about copyright, we could possibly just set up a document or program to convert the CD album tracks (from an actual CD) to the game-appropriate PCMs. Personally, I don't feel like my proposal is comparable to, say, the idea of using the original licensed songs in Rock n' Roll Racing, but I can understand if you're against it on principle.

(EDIT: I would also like to point out that technically the Mega Man X 3 PCM set using music from the PSOne version would fit the description of "piracy" just as much as using an album source.)
