A dump of it is circulating among collectors for quite a long time, and there's no reason not to release it....

This is a dump of the version previously owned by PlayStationMuseum.com. It's real and works like a charm in pSX. So have fun with this!

Cool.  Glad that it's finally out now for everyone to get. :D

EDIT: Uploaded original rar file.

Here is the theme music to StarCon as well in both MP3 and the original WAV file:

It appears that the audio track (STARCON_T02.WAV, referred to by STARCON.CUE) is missing from Anthony's .zip files. Is this file present in the (now unaccessible) RAR file?

Yes, that file is in the RAR files.  I converted it to MP3 and I have the original WAV file:
http://starcontroller.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/STARTHEM.mp3
http://starcontroller.com/files/STARTHEM.WAV

The file name is different, but the file itself is the same.

I see a file STARTHEM.WAV inside the CD image itself, but that's not what I'm referring to.
The CUE file describes the parts which form the CD: One data track, in the file STARCON_T01.BIN, and one audio track in STARCON_T02.WAV (which would be playable in a regular CD player). Anyone who wants to recreate the CD needs both (though chances are that the game will run without the audio track).
Was there no STARCON_T02.WAV file inside the RAR archive, along with STARCON.CUE and STARCON_T01.BIN?

Btw, why did you repack the RAR file at least three times? Why not just repost the "original" RAR file?

Meep-Eep is right. There should be three files:

STARCON.CUE
STARCON_T01.BIN (track #1, data)
STARCON_T02.WAV (track #2, red book audio)

All of them are required to re-create the disc, so please only mirror the rar archive as uploaded by me.

Sorry about that, I'll replace the files.  Thanks for letting me know about hat.  I have reuploaded the original RAR file.
