You can find all the MBM files of 'Shrines of Enigma' on the 'Milenium CD's' version.

The contents of the CD have been partly released on the MCCM archive:
http://www.msxcomputermagazine.nl/archief/mccm-90cd/
but sadly, those music files don't seem to be present.
I could ask the original composer if he still got those files himself and if he would be willing to donate them to our Downloads DB, as they may also have an educational use besides their obvious entertainment quality.
Ofcourse, I can't 100% promise anything at this point.

By the way, did you guys know that a lot of songs in The Lost World were originally written for Shrines of Enigma (and some of those for Element's Castlevania game in development)?

The Castlevania WIP was iirc an ambitious project of Fuzzy Logic. Much of the engine and graphics were already done and a big load of the music as well. Fuzzy Logic's MB Muzax #1 had at least one of the songs on it as well and some appeared on Sunrise Magazines as well...
Near Dark got the disks with all the material on it and after a few glances out coders had the same conclusion: too ambitious. That's when Pigeonsoft (hi Rikusu) got the stack of disks... I lost track of it at that point...
The game's name would've been Nosferatu.

I did however find an SD-Snatcher based track in Shrines of Enigma as well. First track in this clip. The track of the first post had some Xak 1 demo thingies going on in it.

I wish Hans finishes his computer room soon so he can pick up his hobbies again :)

Looking at the Lost World music files now, actually about most of Hans' tracks in there were originally for Nosferatu.
Also, there are some reused tracks from Pumpkin Adventure 3 (although I don't know if they were actually used in that latter game, but I suppose so).
Kind of funny when I realize that most of my entries to the soundtrack were hastily written in about a week. And it shows. Smile

It's a real shame about Nosferatu. I had the pleasure to play it for a bit. It looked and sounded awesome, but it indeed seemed to be a very ambitiuous project.
Maybe that piece of the first stage that was playable could be published some day, along with the source files (if it hasn't been already?).
Also, I remember something with Element demonstrating a SNES version they were working on at an MSX fair.

By the way, Meits, the first edition of the Defender magazine had nicked two songs from the project as well. ;) One of those was used in not only the introduction stage of Nosferatu, but is also the first in-game song of The Lost World. It's this one.
I think the coders of Pigeonsoft/Sargon came to the same conclusion as Near Dark's did.
