Hear his truly unique sound thanks to updated HippoPlayer which supports his music format now (as the only player out there!).
Simply launch HippoPlayer, press the Play button and choose a song from the PaulVanDerValk folder. Just keep in mind that one Medley song includes multiple subsongs! For example, Imploder4 includes nine subsongs while the main tune is the very last one :) Same for the Combat song. Use the >| button to play the next subsong (or just press the Right Arrow key).
Oh, and we've added Medley DOpus filetype, so you can simply double-click any .mso music file to play it instantly :)
