Dear @Chris Porter, can you tell us what exactly the first track contains? Where does this length come from? Very interesting.

Also, most likely the disс is included with this version of the game.

So, the track length for the data track is just what iTunes throws up when I put the disc in my PC. It's not playable as a music track though.

If I open up the disc's contents, I'm given the following:

VC3 (folder)
VOI (folder)
VOI2 (folder)
AUTORUN
INSTALL (BMP)
README
TEASER (Application)
VC3 (Text Document)
WINSTALL (Application)
WINSTALL (Configuration settings)
WUNINSTA (Application)

My modern system can't run the application/game, so I'm not sure if this is actually the full Virtuacall 3 game disc, or some bonus content. Considering how much music there is (see MIDI information below), I would almost guess it's the full game, but I can't say for sure. As you can see by my scans, there isn't much written on the case/booklet. The CD-ROM itself makes it seem like it's the game itself though.

Inside those folders are various files, including lots of WAV files with sound effects.

Most interesting for me, there is a folder filled with MIDI project files that I can open up in my DAW and play.

There are 106 different projects, but most of them are duplicates of the same exact music with, I'm guessing, different data that was used to communicate with the game engine.

In total, there appears to be about 31 unique compositions on there. When I get some time, I'm going to bounce all of the MIDI to audio and put together a little OST for this game.
