Game Music

Background

Here are some of my favourite tunes.

WinAmp is required to play these files with the following plug-ins:
in_ym.dll by Arnaud Carré, download from http://leonard.oxg.free.fr/,
in_sk00l.dll SurfSmurf's olkskOOl MOD player v0.82, download from http://www.rift.dk/,
in_sid.dll can be downloaded from SidAmp.

If any of the original author's web sites are unavailable you can download the versions I use below.
To download, position the cursor over the links below. Press the right mouse button and then press 'Save Target As...'.

You can download the ST Sound WinAmp Plugin v2.0 from here (53.5k).
You can download the Old Skool MOD Player v0.82 from here (29.4k).
You can download SidAmp v1.33 from here (121k).

Just copy in_sk00l.dll to your Plugins directory in WinAmp to enjoy Brian Postma's SoundMon 1.0-2.2, Future Composer 1.0-1.4, SoundTracker, NoiseTracker, StarTrekker (limited features), ProTracker and FastTracker for those 4+ channel MODs. Even in 2008 I prefer SidAmp to SidPlay because it is easier to select sub-tunes in SidAmp.

JAM Player can be used to play SNDH format. Use AY-Emul by Sergey Bulba to convert AY to YM6 format.

RealPlayer 8 or higher is required for the ultra realistic Robocop tune, download RealPlayer from Real Networks.

As of 2016 DroidSound and ZX Tune can be used to play MOD and YM format tunes on Android.

Notes

Matt Furniss wrote the music for Toobin, Chase HQ, Hard Drivin' in mod format.
Matt Simmonds (4mat, 4-Mat) of Anarchy wrote the music for Leander, Micro Machines etc.
He also wrote an ace version (credit: Mat Simmonds) of the Rambo Loader tune (original Martin Galway) for a plasma intro.
dreamfish/TRSI did a slower version of the Rambo Loader tune in .MOD format.
The music on Sega Arcade Gallery was by Anthony N Putson but the sound effects were by Allister Brimble (Project-X, Superfrog etc).
