Hi Glenn, great guide!
Quick Question:
I downloaded the soundtrack from here http://www.sound-test.org/soundtracks/alone-in-the-dark/alone-in-thedark2/ , is there anyway to get it in game?

Hi Tim I apologize for the long delay in my response. I would say if it would work the place to try it would be in the c:\games\alone2\Alone in the Dark 2 folder.

Have a great New Year!

Best,
Glenn
