Title: For my 250th post, I want to show you all something special.
Post by: Adigun A. Polack on July 19, 2004, 06:51:53 PM
Dearest ALL of the QB45/QB71 community,

Hello to you and a rather so splendid new week to you all!!  :cool: !!

Celebrating my 250th post, I want to share with you something real special that I have discovered on the internet not too long ago.  Have you ever heard of a Japanese internet radio station called Emusica?  It is a very special radio station that is ENTIRELY devoted to (get this right now!) arcade game music!!  And man, on most of the music for them games, they play back ALL of the original tracks you have used to love back then, from the “coin-in” sounds to the stage/boss musics and even to the “Game Over” and “Name Entry” musics!!  My, ain’t that good?  :D !

Apparently, currently playing at least during the week of July 18, 2004 are ALL music tracks indeed from the following games:

    •
Air Buster (Kaneko; 1990; Arcade)
• Cleopatra Fortune (Taito; 1996; Arcade)
• Daytona USA (Sega; 1994; Arcade)
• Detana!! Twinbee / Bells & Whistles (Konami; 1991; Arcade)
• Dragon Saber (Namco; 1990; Arcade)
• ESP Ra.De (Cave; 1998; Arcade)
• Marchen Maze / Alice in Wonderland (Namco; 1988; Arcade)
• Metal Soldier Issac II (Taito; 1985; Arcade)
• Mr. Heli (Irem; 1987; Arcade)
• Night Striker (Taito; 1989; Arcade)
• Out Run (Sega; 1986; Arcade)
• Pac-Mania (Namco; 1987; Arcade)
• R-Type (Irem; 1987; Arcade)
• Tatsujin / Truxton (Toaplan/Taito; 1988; Arcade)
• Tatsujin II / Tatsujin Oh / Truxton II (Toaplan; 1992; Arcade)
• Thunder Cross II (Konami; 1991; Arcade)
• Thunder Dragon 2 (NMK; 1993; Arcade)
[/list]

........and MANY more from within the coming weeks!!  Stay tuned for that!  ;) !  In the meantime, you can listen to this fiery-hot station by clicking going to this address:

    Thanks and enjoy this fitting post, y’all!!!  :king: !!

    But Windows Media player said it didnt recognise the file. And yes, I do have 9


    Title: I will see what I can do about this here.
    Post by: Adigun A. Polack on July 20, 2004, 11:43:15 AM
    To Dark_prevail and Z!re:

    As far as I remember, at least RealOne Player and another free piece of software that you can download called XMplay (found within the site http://www.un4seen.com) actually play the original arcade tunes through Emusica.pls.  Apparently, the reason you couldn’t reach Emusica is at that time was perhaps because the server is full.  :(  But don’t you worry, guys, as the server will normally open up again within the next hour or sooner, so you can try the listening file on Winamp or Windows Media Player later, ok?  :D

    On the link that I have so kindly showed you at the very top of the thread, do a right-click on it first and choose “Save Target As...” and save the file to your hard drive as well.  Have you tried that?  Also, you might want to try dragging the file to either Winamp, RealOne Player, or XMplay, or some other media player that you have to see if it can possibly resolve your problems.

    I hope this all helps out and even works out, and thank you both and Plasma for your time this Tuesday.  ;)

    P.S.  Just 10 minutes after I first written this very post you are looking at, Emusica just came back on after a downtime!!  How about that, huh?  :D !

    I said it once and I will say it again. AAP, you need a life more than anyone I have ever known. And this time it should not be deleted because it is not an insult, nor am I trying to start an argument. I just simply never want to see another post about some useless "not crap" by AAP.

    For those of you who read this, I'm leaving and this post being deleted is the reason why. This post being deleted is proof that administration here is what elsewhere is known as stupidity. For those of you who who did not see this post before it was deleted (or at least the above paragraph deleted), you will never know why I have left. Goodbye and enjoy ignorance.

    By the way, didn't someone once get their thread locked for having nothing useful at all in it, and it being posted simply because it was a stupid post count number than ended in 0?

    Heh, when i first saw the title of this topic i was like, "Oh no, not another one of these celebrations of number of posts."  Luckily, this one was different.

    I totally agree with Plasma there.  How can you judge someone if you barely know him?  :???:

    Hah! I love the way you say that AAP needs a life. For it is you, Seph that needs a life. Stop hanging around here and posting useless posts and threads. At least AAP actually programs now and then.  :roll:

    Actually, AAP was showing us a rather cool radio station that he had found. He saw it, and obviously had the kindness to share it with us. Besides, his posts are far more valid and pointful than your posts will ever be.


    Title: There we have it! The proof is in the pudding, folks.
    Post by: Adigun A. Polack on July 21, 2004, 03:05:21 PM
    To Dark_prevail, Plasma, and Barok:

    You all are correct entirely on that.  Goes to show you why it is proof positive that my 250th post indeed had in mind a clear and well-focused purpose in it rather than just no more than a useless junk of a spam-post, you know?  I mean, I take my time and learn to be *truly* careful on my writings of my posts, and I believe that it has finally paid off already on that, most certainly!  :D !  And I will continue to take my time like that in my post-writing skills, too.

    I hope you all are enjoying the original arcade music in your listening of Emusica, and thanks again, wonderful guys.  ;)

    Heh  -  I like, listen and compose videogame music. I have huge files in my HDD. And I constantly sneak videogame music radio sneaks to rip the MP3s. AY and SID music is great, SPU music is great, SEGA music is great :D

    AAP, thanks for the station! The music they play is wicked! I was loving it for the three hours that i listened to it while doing various things! The only reason I stopped listening is because my internet mucked up, and when I came back online, it said the server was full..

    So thanks! That music really is awesome =D


    Title: It is a *real* pleasure, guys, I must tell you. ;*) !
    Post by: Adigun A. Polack on July 22, 2004, 03:54:36 PM
    To Richard Eric M. Lope, Na_th_an, Adosorken, Dark_prevail, and to the rest of you as well:

    I am *so* glad that some to many of you are enjoying this station, as this all brings back the most fondest “FM-synthesis”-based music memories from possibly back in the day to at least some.  Not only that, it TRULY utterly fascinates me to find out how more and more amazingly realistic and in stereo the later and later arcade game music has become from the 80s on (take for instance, the original arcade music from After Burner, Metal Hawk, Darius II / Sagaia, Xexex / Orius, R-Type Leo, and even Cleopatra Fortune and Dangun Feveron / Fever SOS as well!  :o ! ), even to where it becomes more and more CD-like as well, you know, especially when mixed with FM-synthesis, too!!  :D !

    And you know what, I must HONESTLY tell you that one of my sole greatest arcade sound experiences was at a Time-Out amusement place at a shopping mall back in 1990 (remember those places, some of you?  :cool: ! ).  You know why?  Because, while I was there back then, I have checked out an original arcade game called Raiden (and one other person even played a game of it with me, since the machine held two players for play on the thing simultaneously!  ;) ), and guess what, people?  Sure the game had all “FM-synthesis”-based music and percussions, BUT, the real blow-you-away-bigtime factor in addition to that was the *CLEARLY OUTSTANDING* explosions and sound effects!!!  That truly knocked me out of my mind, so to say!!  :rotfl:

    Now sound-wise alone, if you would only imagine yourself creating a QuickBASIC game with:

      • Exclusively FM-based synthesis sound, but only with truly
    AWESOME FM-only percussions that was once used for the Irem arcade originals Mr. Heli, Image Fight and R-Type II and also from the Namco 1987 arcade original Dragon Spirit, too!  :D

    • OUTSTANDING AND MIND-BLOWING sound effects (and even more impressively, *much* clearer digitized voices!)[/list]

    Won’t that be rockingly cool, hmmm?  :king: !!

    And.......

    Quote from: "Dark_prevail, from your recent message here, you so cheerfully"
    AAP, thanks for the station! The music they play is wicked! I was loving it for the three hours that i listened to it while doing various things! The only reason I stopped listening is because my internet mucked up, and when I came back online, it said the server was full..

    So thanks! That music really is awesome =D


    You are *MOST* welcome, my man Dark_prevail, and thank you richly now, too!!  ;*) !  You know something, I too have been listening to it myself while I was doing some other things on the computer, even while I was into the typing of this very message, amazingly enough!  :D  Let me tell you that out of the Emusica track line up for the week of July 18, 2004 and from previous weeks before that, at least some to even a LOT of my favorite musics are from the following games:

      •
    After Burner (Sega, 1987, Arcade)
    • A-Jax / Typhoon (Konami, 1987, Arcade)
    • Area-88 / UN Squadron (Capcom, 1989, Arcade)
    • Battle Garegga (Raizing/Eighting, 1996, Arcade)
    • Bubble Bobble (Taito, 1986, Arcade)
    • Chase HQ (Taito, 1988, Arcade)
    • Cleopatra Fortune (Taito, 1996, Arcade)
    • Darius II / Sagaia (Taito, 1989, Arcade)
    • Detana!! Twinbee (Konami, 1991, Arcade)
    • Dig Dug (Namco, 1982, Arcade)
    • Dragon Sprit (Namco, 1987, Arcade)
    • F/A / Fighter & Attacker (Namco, 1992, Arcade)
    • Galaxy Force II (Sega, 1988, Arcade)
    • Gradius / Nemesis (Konami, 1985, Arcade; even includes the “Bubble System” warming-up music, too!)
    • Gradius II / Vulcan Venture (Konami, 1988, Arcade)
    • Gradius III (Konami, 1989, Arcade)
    • Mappy (Namco, 1983, Arcade)
    • Metal Hawk (Namco, 1988, Arcade)
    • Ordyne (Namco, 1988, Arcade)
    • Out Run (Sega, 1986, Arcade)
    • Pac-Mania (Namco, 1987, Arcade)
    • Ray Force / Gunlock (Taito, 1993, Arcade)
    • R-Type Leo (Irem, 1992, Arcade)
    • Section Z (Capcom, 1985, Arcade)
    • Strike Fighter (Sega, 1991, Arcade)
    • The Tower of Druaga (Namco, 1984, Arcade)
    • Twinbee (Konami, 1985, Arcade)
    • Viper Phase 1 (Seibu Kaihatsu, 1995, Arcade)
    • Wolf Fang / Rohga Armor Force (Data East, 1991, Arcade)[/list]

    ........and finally, the absolute *ridiculously* worst group of arcade tracks and voices there are from a Namco game from 1987 called Wonder Momo.  Whatever you do, man, please stay TOTALLY away from the tracks from that very game................unless you want a real flat-good laugh at them (which I did many times, given that the tracks and voices there are WAY too plain goofy, making the musics from After Burner look rather like a grandest masterpiece by comparison!  :lol: !! ).

    Thank you so rather richly more, all of you, and like I may have said from before, more tracks from more games will be on the way in the coming weeks!  Be seeing you again!!  ;) !

    All I have to say about video game music from back in the day is

    Phantasy Star IV: The End of The Millenium. (Sega Genesis)

    Apart from being THE BEST game released for the Genesis, the music was extremely catchy and AWESOME.  I reccomend that you play the game (even if you DON'T like the music), as it is my favorite RPG of all time.

    :D

    To NovaProgramming:

    Right up front, let me just say for the very record that it is perfectly alright to talk about game music in this thread, be it arcade, console, computer or what have you now.  You’re cool and all, no doubt about that!  :D !  As for the music from Phantasy Star IV for the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive, I might want to take a listen to some of it myself sometime, and man, there are all different types of game music out there, even orchestral, booming tunes as well!!  AMAZING!  ;)

    Thanks a lot to you, NovaProgramming, and I will go take a listening try at some of that music indeed, too.  Be talking to you again a little later to let you know just how GOOD it really is!  :cool: !

    Just for fun here on the Sega arcade mega-hit from 1986 entitled Out Run, I can name you all four (4) of its music tracks by their own original titles.  See if they ring a bell to you:

      •
    Magical Sound Shower
    • Splash Wave
    • Passing Breeze
    • Last Wave (Name-Entry music)[/list]

    I hope this truly helps you refresh your memory on that, man, and thanks!!  :D !

    Dont mean to hijack this thread but DrV, Multimedia with Linux is a tricky thing. But I have been able to watch all kinds of video formats on Xine/GMplayer and listen to live streams/mp3s etc... on XMMS.

    BTW Redhat had removed mp3 support due to copyright problems. But there are patches/workarounds available. Just download xine and compile it, you'll be able to play almost all formats.

    I want to let all of you know right now that currently on Emusica, while the music tracks from some arcade games like ESP Ra.De., Tatsujin Oh/Tatsujin II/Truxton II, Chase H.Q. and Stike Fighter have for now been removed, for the week of July 25, 2004, do enjoy all of the original music tracks from the following arcade games:

    • Butasan (Jaleco; 1987; Arcade, there is already a game like this that was created using QB entitled Squealer TNT, and there is a possible download of it being found right here (http://piptol.qbasicnews.com/files.htm)!)
    • Atomic Runner Chelnov (Data East; 1988; Arcade)
    • Contra / Gryzor (Konami; 1987; Arcade)

    • Super Stingray (Alpha Denshi; 1986; Arcade)
    • T.M.N.T. Turtles In Time (Konami; 1991; Arcade)[/list]
    .........all while *all* of the original arcade tracks from Ray Force/Gunlock, R-Type, Thunder Cross II, Detana!! Twinbee/Bells & Whistles, and some other games are for now still intact for your listening pleasure!  And people, when I said from the very opening of this original thread that there will be MORE games fresh from the arcade available to you at Emusica within the coming weeks, I wasn’t kidding!!  ^_- !  And, if any of you haven’t even tuned in to this station, you are missing an awful lot here, so please join in and relive those SPECTACTULAR memories!!!



    And to NovaProgramming (and any of you might want to listen to this, too!):

    Well, I have just today listened to some original music from the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive RPG smash entitled Phantasy Star IV, and guess what?  THEY TOTALLY ROCKED, *especially* where Genesis/Mega Drive music is concerned!!  :D !  Four of the game’s tracks (“Her Last Breath”, “Laughter”, “Ooze”, “Motabia Village”) are mightily excellent examples of how fine game music is to be created, as they are all dramatic, touching, gut-wrenching, and beautiful at the same time in a pretty major way, I gotta say!!!  :cool:

    And, to listen to the many of the original tracks from Phantasy Star IV, here is what you do:

      1 • Go to GamingFM (Classic Console) by accessing the web site http://classic.gamingfm.com/.

      2 • On the top of the GamingFM (Classic Console) web page, go to a small button called “Live Requests” and click it.

      3 • On the list of games, select “Phantasy Star 4 -- [Genesis]”.  Click “Search” located right next to that list.

      4 • There, you will see the list of the MANY songs available for Phantasy Star IV.  You may request any of them you want by clicking the word “Request” right next to the title of the song you desire, but remember now, you are allowed ONLY TWO (2) REQUESTS PER HOUR, please.

      5 • After you have requested your songs, go to the either the buttons “Listen to 128k Stream” or “Listen to 24k Stream” to try to listen to GamingFM (Classic Console).  Once successful, enjoy the station!!  Now then, wait for your song(s) to come up, and once they do so, kick back and enjoy the music as well!!  :cool:[/list]
      One final thing.  It is possible that you can listen to GamingFM on at least Windows Media Player, RealOne Player, WinAmp, and XMplay as well, so real good fortune to you on this station, too!!  ^_^ !



      Thank you all so gladly much, and remember, do keep on rocking to those game music memories!!!  ;*) !!

      Do you really think they are listening to it all the time?

      To HQSneaker:

      I gotta be especially honest here.  From my last post, I don’t necessarily mean that people listen to either station all the time and that is it.  Come on.  Of course people got other varieties of stuff to do besides just one thing alone, as the listening of either station is *entirely* up to them for themselves.  I mean, they are just as free to choose what they like to do as you and I are, and I cannot deny that.  That is all I am saying, HQSneaker.  That is all.  :D

      No harm, no foul.  :cool: !  Talk to you later now.

      "Her Last Breath" (Alys' death scene), "Laughter" (Lashiec battle music), and "Ooze" (final boss music) are the greatest soundtracks in Phantasy Star IV, with "Ooze" easily being the best. :) Other good ones include "Cybernetic Carnival" (combat theme for vehicles) and "Behind The Circuit" (dungeon theme for certain areas). There were two musicians on the PS4 project, and although the musics blend well together, you can tell who did what from their different styles of composition.


      Title: Man, have you hit the bullseye on that one! ^_^ !

      To Adosorken:

      Man, I *must* tell you that you are definitely correct on that one.  :D !  And you are 100% correct as well that there were indeed two (2) musicians that composed the outstanding music for Phantasy Star IV, and those two wonderful people were:

        •
      Izuho Takeuchi
      • M. Nakagaki
      (The both of them also did the sound effects for Phantasy Star IV, too!  ;) )[/list]
      And Adosorken, look, I have got to gladly tell you something else about Izuho Takeuchi himself.  :king:  He is also the man who has teamed up with Yoshiaki Kashima to do the sound program for Phantasy Star IV itself.  As well, he was apparently credited for MANY of the other musical works for the following games:
        »
      Mega Man 7 (Capcom; 1995; Super NES/Super Famicom)
      » Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (Sega; 1992; Genesis/Mega Drive)
      » Phantasy Star III (Sega; 1990; Genesis/Mega Drive)
      » Forgotten Worlds (Capcom (reprogrammed by Sega); 1989; Genesis/Mega Drive)[/list]
       What a guy, huh?  ;*)

      Just wanted to let you know of some fascinating material like that, and thank you so much.  ^_- !
