    Star Trader (X68000)

    Thanks again!
    Isn't the PC-98 version of Star Trader exactly the same as the PC-88 soundtrack? You can get Star Trader X68000 from ruiner's thread.

    Oh, I was ignorant about the X68000 version existing in Ruiner9's thread. As for the PC-88 and PC-98 versions, they do sound about identical. Let's Compare:

    PC-88

    PC-98
    [Hidden link. Register to see links.]


    If they do sound 100% identical, then here is my new request list replacing already added ones with new ones:

    ViewPoint (X68000)
    Stinger (Arcade, Seibu Kaihatsu)
    Wiz (Arcade, Seibu Kaihatsu)
    -> [Hidden link. Register to see links.] <-

    Ha ha, that criterion would automatically disqualify like 90% of the PC-98's library. I'm not sure if I understood you correctly: do you actually want to play these games or just listen to their music?

    I am sorry, I meant good soundtracks the games on the PC-98, 88, and X68000 that are NOT pornographic. I do not want to play ANY pornographic game on any of those computers- I see those games as trash that should've never been made. But I do not know why those "games" have good music, like the ones made by elf, C's Ware or Queen Soft. They could've done actual good games, but instead they wasted their efforts with dirty pornographic trash.

    Hmm, that makes it indeed somewhat difficult. I think all of the Falcom action RPGs are pretty much nudity-free and have excellent music to boot, same for anything by Kure Software Koubou (Dark Seraphim, First Queen series, Early Kingdom). Other rpgs with good soundtracks are Alshark, Illusion City, Manji, or the Arcus series. And you can head over to ruiner's thread for a few more like Hydelide 3 (X68000) or Emerald Dragon (PC-88).

    Grounseed is also a PC-98 game with an amazing soundtrack. There's no nudity and it's one of my favorite OST's on the system. i have the OPN and OPNA versions in my thread.

    Starforce Fighter (C64) - Shmup with music by Wally Beben.

    Viewpoint (Arcade) - Compared to the awesome arcade soundtrack this is a somewhat disappointing effort.

    Toy Story (Amiga) - This is technically not an Amiga soundtrack but the original MOD files used for the title track of the Genesis game. The song is a cover of 'Strange Things" (from the movie) by Allister Brimble.

    A bit of shameless advertising that I'll limit to your thread because I think it's most relevant here:

    Over in Anime, Film & Video Game Music Discussion we've been running a game for years where someone makes a mix of 16 to 128 tracks/albums based around a theme and participants vote in a knock-out style tournament. It's a bit silly, but it's a way for all of us to discover new music. I ran a Tim Follin game a while back, and we just kicked off my own 16-track 'user's choice' theme. The mix is almost all 80s chip stuff. If you're at all curious [Hidden link. Register to see links.]. I will probably provide a lot of factually inaccurate and naive commentary along the way. We're tentatively planning to follow my custom mix with a 64-track C64 game.

    Sure, I'll have a look. As long as you don't expect me to write extensive essays to support my choices

    Silent Möbius (X68000) - Based on the manga of the same name with pretty good music by Masahiro Kajihara and Hiroe Suga.

    Noisy Pillars (C64) - So this demo was really the first Maniacs of Noise release. Jeroen Tel was 15 when he composed this music, Charles Deenen 17 when he programmed the sound driver. That's pretty crazy.

    Final Synth Sample I (C64) - This was a music demo created by Rob Hubbard in late '84/85 when he was trying to land a gig in the industry. Probably also his first published work on the C64. Pretty interesting are the stylistic choices: some folk, country, western - very different from his later stuff.

    Final Synth Sample II (C64) - Another music demo by Rob Hubbard. Noteworthy here are the early versions of tunes that he later used in soundtracks like 'One Man And His Droid' and 'Formula 1 Simulator'.

    Astaroth (Atari ST) - Conversion of the Amiga soundtrack by Jochen Hippel

    Breathless (Amiga) - First-person shooter with dark electronic music.

    And finally, the OP now has a dedicated section for demo music and arrangements.

    Death Brade doesn't seem to have a MIDI soundtrack, are there maybe multiple versions of this game? As for Sorcer Striker: the FM Towns version has a CD soundtrack that was recorded with an SC-55. It sounds the same as the X68000 MIDI but would require far less time to make. Can I give you that one instead?

    Vantage Master (Windows,CD Audio, SC-88) - Excellent music in this Falcom strategy game. Included are the CD audio and SC-88 MIDI versions of the soundtrack.

    BQ Taikenban (X68000) - Weird Final Fantasy-inspired doujin game. There only seems to be one battle before you see the ending. The music is pretty nice though.

    I tried them this morning and they were down. It was probably a Mega glitch.

    Yeah, I think MEGA is having problems today, took me forever to upload this one soundtrack.

    Sorcer Striker (FM Towns) - CD audio from the FM Towns version, which is a recording of the SC-55 music of the X68000 port. I think this is actually better than the FM soundtrack.

    Here are the two soundtracks that failed to upload on Sunday:

    Last Armageddon (X68000) - This version seems to have a lot more music than the PC-88 release. I don't know if all of that is actually used in the game though.

    Tibo's Tale (C64) - Pang clone with bouncy music. The intro track is pretty good.

    It's been a while again, but I am once again back with more arcade requests for you. This time, these requests are Taito-themed!!

    - Gladiator (One of the earlier fighting games made. My memories of playing this game was from Taito Legends on the PS2, and remembered that the animations looked so ridiculously silly for its time.)
    - Operation Thunderbolt (The sequel to Operation Wolf. This was actually going to be one of my future requests for ruiner's VGM topic until he stopped doing requests, so I decided to request this here instead.)
    - Rambo III (One of the best video game adaptations of Rambo until the 2008 Rambo arcade game came out. Has some good tunes that sort of fit the theme of the game. Also a now-used-to-be request to ruiner's VGM topic.)

    That's all for now. I've got more requests for you soon, but since I am a patient man, I'll wait until these are done.

    Check out Great Gurianos (C64) if you haven't already. That is the computer port of Gladiator and one of Mark Cooksey's best tunes. It also has an [Hidden link. Register to see links.].

    Today's update is all about tracker music in DOS games:

    Pinball World (MS-DOS) - Pinball game with interconnected tables, the soundtrack consists of tracker music and a handful of CD audio tracks. This wasn't actually made by Digital Illusions but the music is very reminiscent of their games.

    Epic Pinball (MS-DOS) - This game had a number of different releases and expansion packs that are all included here.

    Silverball (MS-DOS) - The lesser known prequel, some of the tunes were later re-arranged for Epic Pinball. My favorite is the piano tune of the Snooker table.

    Death Rally (MS-DOS) - Today, Jonne Valtonen (aka Purple Motion) is mostly known as an arranger and orchestrator. He had his start in the demoscene though where he composed awesome stuff like [Hidden link. Register to see links.] or [Hidden link. Register to see links.]. Death Rally is one of the few games he worked on at that time.

    And one request:

    Full Throttle / Top Speed (X68000) - Conversion of the Taito arcade soundtrack with lots of of rockin' tunes. There is an alternate set of tracks labeled as 'stereo' included here, but I don't know how (or if) they are used in the game.

    Thanks, nx666. I know that B. Rap Boys has no sound test, but perhaps real-time recording the English (and probably Japanese soundtracks) would make an excellent Christmas or New Year gift to all of us. That and DJ Boy (which you already uploaded) can go well together.

    I wish you the best of luck. ^_^
