Not much has happened over here in the past two months, and I would like to apologise for that. Life unfortunately takes over at times, and as much as I’d love to work more on this project, sometimes I end up not have nearly any time at all. No this doesn’t mean that I’m resigning from posting new soundtracks, just that it’ll probably take a while between releases at times, depending on how crowded my schedule is.

So anyway, this time I decided to work on A-Train’s (A列車で行こう3) sequel. Even though the music of this game is not that impressive in the japanese versions, it’s still quite nice to listen to. Although I have to add that the MT-32 version of it sounds fabulous, even on a mediocre composition effort. Then again, when was it even a MT-32 game soundtrack I didn’t like? Haha.
Doubt it many would know these games, or their western counterparts, which did not sell that well when they were released, I still hope you’ll give them a try.
Speaking of the western releases, the AdLib set might have one track missing (“Economic Upturn”), as I could not have triggered it to play in-game in the limited time I had to play the game. And since I could not record it from other sources, such as with HooT, I had to leave it out for now, but I’ll update the set once I have the time to play the game for a bit longer, and trigger the sound piece).
Please also note that I haven’t played the japanese versions of the game that much (or I haven’t been very good at them), so I wasn’t sure how to name some of the tracks.
If you know how to name them or at which events they play, please do let me know! 🙂

As a side note, in the following period (1-2 months) I’ll likely not post any new stuff, instead I’ll focus on fixing some of the existing sets, as I have noticed a lot of mistakes I made in recording or tagging those sets. Also I’ll probably update some MT-32/CM-32L/LAPC-1 sets, as the newer versions of MUNT allow for a more

Also I added the SC-88 set for Transport Tycoon (Deluxe), so make sure to check it out!

Today you’re in luck, I have decided to make another double-release, as I felt that one of the games had quite a short soundtrack, namely the first one below:

I’ll have to be honest with you guys, playing this game after so long it feels like the game itself is half-baked, made in a rush to gear in for the profits. Perhaps it’s just because the game is aimed at kids, and is educational in purpose? I don’t know, but the game is so random… you basically have nothing predictable as in other management or sim games, your chance of making your business last depends pretty much on your luck. Even the soundtrack feels half-baked, doesn’t have any interesting melodies, nor does it use any interesting combinations of instruments, but I decided to give this game a chance anyway, as the music itself still has some use in bringing some nostalgic feelings 🙂

A rather obscure NES platformer that I consider to have some awesome music! 😀
I remember playing this game alot as a kid, during the time I only had a NES as a console, the other being a 386DX-powered PC. I remember always losing on the 2nd stage due to my clumsiness, but after getting to record this game, I think I’ll try to finally beat the game itself this time sometime soon.
Today while working on this I also learnt that the original japanese version was made after an tokusatsu show.

Ended up posting this the following week, ugh. Took quite a long time recording this, especially since I’ve tried to get it to work with Gravis UltraSound as a sound option in the IBM-PC version of the game, but for some reasons the game kept playing it out of tempo, it getting really annoying after a while.
Besides the Gravis UltraSound that I could not include this time, I also had to leave out the Macintosh version since I could not get the emulator to play the midi files properly, the PC-98 version is missing because I could not get the disk(s) for the game (I wonder if anyone at all has them!) and also the MegaDrive/32X port does not have a music player and it’s impossible to record songs in-game on certain levels. Maybe if I can fix any of the above issues, I’ll be adding those ports as well.
So anyway, when I was younger I used to play a lot of FPS games, but after a while I grew out of it and started focusing on other genres, as things got boring and repetitive quickly. The soundtrack in itself now mostly brings me nostalgic feelings, and probably what got me into liking metal as a teenager 😀
Speaking of which, here’s an excellent cover of one of the songs in the game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNxnRqLskXo
But before listening to the cover, why not listen to the originals? 😀
