    I wish you the best of luck. ^_^
    I know what would make an excellent Xmas gift for you guys: a few weeks of nothing but Spectrum beeper music

    I can look into B. Rap Boys again, but that will take a while. Seriously, in terms of effort that's like 10 regular requests.

    A good Xmas present for me would be tons of music from Japanese computer games.

    Then why don't you request a few? More from this composer/company/system would also be a totally valid request, in case you are having trouble coming up with specific titles.

    Oh, and it has to be boob-free music, of course

    Well, what about Takeshi Abo? He was a composer at STARCRAFT and he reprogrammed the music to many Western RPGs on the PC98, and X68000. Rhythm Star was one of his best works on the PC-98 using a OPNA card for extra instruments. STARCRAFT, before they went under in 1995, reprogrammed tons of Western RPGs to the PC-98, FM TOWNS and X68000, just like Pony Canyon did with Dungeons and Dragons and others:

    I was going to suggest more music from MUSE, Kajihara, Sano, and Ryu Umemoto since I do like their music, but again- they worked on too much pornographic games.

    Gladiator (Arcade) - This is actually pretty horrible, no wonder the computer ports all got their own music.

    Rambo III (Arcade) - Cross hair shooter with dramatic music.

    Ultrix (C64) - A Pang clone with hideous 'erotic' art. The music by Lars Hutzelmann is pretty good though.

    I'll add Rhyme Star to the list. Do any of these StarCraft DOS ports have new music? The few I had listened to all seemed to be straight conversions of the Adlib soundtracks. I think FlixMix has a handful of original Takeshi Abo compositions though.

    I do not know for certain. I thought I would like you to know that Data West's PSYCHIC DETECTIVE games were released on Windows 95/98 as well in Japan Only.

    Rhyme Star (PC-9801,OPNA) - Music by Takeshi Abo. This is pretty great stuff with excellent sound design. I really like the themes of world 8 and 10, but the rest is not too shabby either.

    Dyna Blaster (Amiga) - This is the port of Bomberman for the Amiga and the music is a pretty faithful adaption of Jun Chikuma's original soundtrack. The conversion was done my Eike Steffen aka Romeo Knight, who also added a pretty cool original piece for the credits. As far as I know, this is his only Amiga game soundtrack.

    Operation Thunderbolt (Arcade) - Not a whole lot of music in this Taito arcade game.

    I haven't been able to find disk images of these games but I think they were only released on CD. The FM Towns versions have CD audio soundtracks so that might be the case for the Windows releases as well.

    Please make sure you only have 3 requests open at a time. And does this mean you don't want any more soundtracks by Takeshi Abo?

    Yeah, I still want some soundtracks by Takeshi Abo. I will wait on the other 3 later.

    Are arcade games requestable? I don't believe it specifically says so in your first post Just noticed the large arcade section is all; if so, you should check these out!

    Cadash (Arcade) [Hidden link. Register to see links.]
    Rapid Hero (Arcade) [Hidden link. Register to see links.]

    Defunct links from the megaupload days abound for these, or not around at all. Thanks again for all the music, time to check out this Rhyme Star.

    Just go ahead and request arcade games, you wouldn't be the first one to do that.

    Here are some more arcade requests to start the week off for you, nx666!

    - Mat Mania (Also known as Exciting Hour, and the sequel to Tag Team Wrestling, both developed by Technos.)
    - Maze of Flott (A Taito game where you drive a vehicle in maze-like areas.)
    - Power Spikes II (Since I mentioned that the first game had a sequel (albeit in the far future), I've decided to request this here, lol.)

    Still got more in store as far as requests go, but for now, that is all.

    FlixMix (PC-9821,OPNA) - Half of this soundtrack consists of music that was converted from the DOS version. The better tracks are the original Takeshi Abo compositions though, which were done using the same sound driver as Rhyme Star.

    Tsunyan Jaayao (PC-9801,OPNA) - Another Takeshi Abo soundtrack, a bit less impressive in terms of sound design and with Asian influences.

    Hermetic (C64) - Some nice tracks by Thomas Mogensen and Jens-Christian Huus in this C64 shmup.

    Rapid Hero (Arcade) - Up-tempo tracks with heavy drums and orchestra hits.

    C64: Eliminator, Xenophobe, Stormlord, Dominator
    PC-8801: Armored Beast WerDragon, Providence, Star Trader
    PC-9801: Possessioner, Armored Flaghip Atragon, Flame Zapper Kotsujin, Meikyuu Gakuensai
    X68000: Alshark, Spanner-X, Arcus 2, Desperado
    ZX Spectrum: Light Corridor, Sokoban Perfect, Black Lamp
    I've completely forgot to thank you for this list. I really appreciate that you didn't go with obvious choices everyone already knows and loves (Monty on the Run, The Last Ninja etc)

    He actually has a [Hidden link. Register to see links.] with a fairly detailed list of everything he's done for StarCraft including information on what was a port/original composition.

    As soon as B. Rap Boys is ripped or not, in honor of the premiere of The Force Awakens, please rip these next:

    Star Wars: The Arcade (Atari Games)
    Star Wars: Attack on Death Star (X68000 and PC-98 versions both)

    That'll be all. If you are busy, please put these new requests on hold until you are ready.

    Cadash (Arcade) - Action-rpg by Taito. The music doesn't actually sound very Japanese and more like the soundtrack to a DOS rpg from that era.

    Maze of Flott (Arcade) - Another Taito arcade game with music by Yasuhisa Watanabe.

    Chick's Tale (PC-9801) - Card game with hentai scenes. The music is by Hitoshi Sakimoto.

    Marionette Mind (PC-9801) - Visual novel with music by Takeshi Abo.

    Feud (C64), The Island of Dr. Destructo (C64), Terra Cognita (C64), The Tube (C64) - Four more soundtracks by David Whittaker from 1986/87.

    Look, why does EVERYONE have to honor Star Wars? They are now owned by the worst entertainment company in the industry for God's sake. Granted, I too like Star Wars, but only the movies that 20th Century Fox released.

    I'm not a Star Wars fan, either. But if I had to pick something related, then it would be the Sharp X68000 and NEC PC-98 games. They remind me of similar games.

    True, I do like hearing the Star Wars music in FM synth for a change. But still, Disney should've never gotten their grubby, greedy hands on Star Wars. They just want to take and own everything until there is no other entertainment company in the world that can compete with them.

    Be prepared to supply your own disk images, because most of these StarCraft games seem to be impossible to find. Their music is usually a straight conversion of the DOS Adlib soundtrack, which in turn is just a bad way to listen to music originally composed for MT-32 or GM, so I'm not sure if that's worth all the trouble either.

    I'm currently still working on the B. Rap Boys soundtrack and it might take a while until it is finished.

    I am sorry. I do not have them so that means I won't get the sound tracks. What about the other 3 ones that I have requested before?

    Here are three more soundtracks that didn't make it in time for yesterday's update.

    Power Spikes II (Arcade) - Neo Geo volleyball game by Video System.

    Toge (PC-9801,OPNA), Ningen Konchuu: Nozoki (PC-9801,OPNA) - Two visual novels by Poison Breath with nice music by Kyouko Anderson.

    Also, I couldn't do Mat Mania (Arcade)

    For the coming 2-3 weeks, I won't have much time to work on requests. I'll keep these 3 in my backlog, but you might have to wait a bit longer than usual. Also, Brah Choushinden (PC-9801) seems to be another game I can't find disk images for.
