    I like that kind of sound mainly for fast melodies, like the "boss battles" themes... anyway I only played 1 game (Giana Sisters) for C64, and I don't even remember it's music... so I'm not so competent about what I can expect.

    Music that sticks to the roots of their instruments are better for me... for example Freestyler is cool as a challenge, but mainly I prefere the original one :D while it will be difficult for me to appreciate an old tune remade with a full set of instruments.

    (I still like more the "speaker" music of Dune 2, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, Monkey Island... etc... over their AdLib/SoundBlaster counterparts)

    In anticipation for more Pyra news :)

    http://hvsc.perff.dk/MUSICIANS/A/A-Man/Genesis.sid

    I heard this SID first at one of the X party's and loved it instantly. I found out later, by accident, that it's a remake of Genesis by Justice. It played in some spotify playlist while I was doing chores in the house :) I was like... hey... o_O

    I looked them up on youtube, this is what it's derived from. :cool:

    currently listening...
    *martin galway's - miami vice theme*
    the game itself was pretty bad (never managed to play it), but this long and slowly flangeing tune with lots of cool overdriven filtering....
    love it! :)

    Thanks for the tribute @rSl
    I've played so many games with tunes from Ben Daglish in them. It's fair to say he's been a big part of my childhood.
    His SID instruments weren't the best but his tunes are memorable for sure!
    A couple that stand out for me:

    Auf wiedersehen monty http://hvsc.perff.dk/MUSICIANS/H/Hubbard_Rob/Auf_Wiedersehen_Monty.sid (By Rob Hubbard and Ben Daglish together)

    Biggles http://hvsc.perff.dk/MUSICIANS/D/Daglish_Ben/Biggles.sid

    Challenge of the gobots http://hvsc.perff.dk/MUSICIANS/D/Daglish_Ben/Challenge_of_the_Gobots_on_the_Moebius_Strip.sid

    Deflektor http://hvsc.perff.dk/MUSICIANS/D/Daglish_Ben/Deflektor.sid

    Krakout 3 http://hvsc.perff.dk/MUSICIANS/D/Daglish_Ben/Krakout.sid (I prefer tune 3)

    Trap http://hvsc.perff.dk/MUSICIANS/D/Daglish_Ben/Trap.sid

    W.E.M.U.S.I.C.1 http://hvsc.perff.dk/MUSICIANS/D/Daglish_Ben/W_E_M_U_S_I_C_1.sid


    May the good man rest in peace. His tunes will forever bring me back to the 80's

    the video is done by 'Last Gamer', just wanted to share as he describes my feelings.

    exactly the same for me.

    my two favourites (besides last ninja and monty) are gauntlet and they stole a million, because i had these games back in the day.

    @Eight Bit The links are 0 bytes for me, I guess you can not directly link...

    @FBnil I just checked, it downloads and plays them directly here, maybe they're just blocking you :cool:

    Also, I didn't know VLC plays SIDs Thanks :)

    Yeah, I just found that out too, because Foobar2000 (the only player I used for SIDs) is not able to use URLs directly, so VLC was the most obvious choice to try out...

    In the plugins I see a "C64 sid demuxer", but I didn't added it so I suppose it's there by default

    @Eight Bit Yeah, it works now. Maybe problems with the server (have not restarted FF at my side). Good memories.
    I looked up how to convert my floppies back to D64's... looks like I will need to buy a diskdrive for that (C128D got stolen out of my mom's storage room... :( sad)
