Nobody's mentioned Lode Runner: The Legend Returns/Mad Monks' Revenge?

Come to think of it, I'm strongly convinced that the music in TLR/MMR is perfect as it is, but what the hey, I'll take a shot at it.

gonna try remixing this:
Lode Runner: The Legend Returns/Mad Monks' Revenge: Crystal Hoard


with which I have the strong desire to mash up with the Pokemon G/S/C Dark Cave theme for some reason.
LOVE AND PEACE!!!

Cool to see this support and activity!

Silpheed has a great soundtrack, at least the couple of first songs. But it's really not a PC soundtrack, but a PC-8801 soundtrack. :) The MS-DOS version is a port. Another similar case and a thoroughly great soundtrack is Zeliard. Alas (for the purposes of this initiative), it's not an original PC soundtrack.

The introduction to Eye of the Beholder II. You can check the list of claimed tracks in the first post. I keep updating it, and there's a couple of links to WIP threads as well if you want to listen to the tracks and maybe post a comment. =)


Finally have enough time to do this up. I'll get right on listening!

As for input, I don't have any of my own, but I did just come across this post in an old thread: quoted below for the lazy Looks like someone needs to get out and do some recruiting.


Ooo, it's great to see there are more people who are disgusted by the lack of PC music here. =P I've always liked The Wingless' arrangements. According to his profile, he hasn't been on the site in quite a while, though. Too bad.

I've got a lot to work on as is, other mixes and school and whatnot, but I think this thread has convinced me to add a Warcraft 2 song to my to-do list. I absolutely loved that game as a kid and played it for hours on end.


Don't feel obligated to start working on another track if you're busy. There's no rush, and you're welcome to join any time. When/if you've decided to remix a track, just give me the title and I'll put you on the list. =)

gonna try remixing this:
Lode Runner: The Legend Returns/Mad Monks' Revenge: Crystal Hoard


with which I have the strong desire to mash up with the Pokemon G/S/C Dark Cave theme for some reason.


I'll put you on the list, so welcome aboard! Great choice of source, but if you're planning on remixing it as part of this initiative, don't mash it up with Pokemon tracks.

Also, I've submitted my Eye of the Beholder II track to the panel today. The initiative has thus officially started!

Just popping in to suggest the Age of Wonders 1 soundtrack. Some of its tracks, like Defenders, Battle Macabre, Perilous Quest and March of the Halfings are really good.

The Heroes of Might and Magic series have really good music, but little love on OCRemix...

i made a psytrance remix of an Unreal Tournament track sometime back. I wanted to do an entire remix project that covered the entire thing plus the original Unreal games soundtrack (i love them both dearly) but it just never took off.

give it a listen and include it if its decent enough :3

edit: oh yeah, heres the original. doh.
Nooooooooooooooo! Not Dan... ANYONE but Dan! :c

Oh snap. This might finally get me out of my fear of letting people hear my stuff. I may just have to get comfy with Ableton (finally) and crank out a Solar Winds mix (already had one started in Reason for a student animation project).

No promises. But childhood obsession [with that game] may compel me.

Adding:

Oh sweet! Somebody remixing Necros. Approval++.

I only got to play the shareware version of Solar Winds as a kid, but I remember being captivated by it. I approve of this proposal.

A ReMix from Quest for Glory, by jrm, just got posted. :nicework: From djp's writeup: "DOS/PC games are still, even after 12+ years, underrepresented on OCR, relative to the amount of amazing music that was written for them."

You know what to do!

I hate to say it (as I do love Flashback) but I think it was originally for the Amiga and then ported to PC, Sega etc.

On another note, I think I'll get started on my mix for this in the next few days (maybe even today).

You're absolutely right. Flashback hit the Amiga first in 1992, then the MS-DOS one year later, in 1993.
But technically it's still eligible for the Initiative, since it saw a proper release on the system.
Maybe Archangel can chime in on whether ports are allowed or discouraged all together.

I suppose the main thing is that, when the mix hits the front page, it would be listed under either DOS or Windows games in the database. Depends on djpretzel/site staff, but I would guess this would require that the DOS version would have a distinct version of the soundtrack.

Just thought I'd tell you guys, I support this idea wholeheartedly. All my years at OCRemix I've noticed a stunning lack of PC remixes, hopefully this'll bring some freshness to the table. Godspeed to everyone involved.

Oh, and if anyone were to do a Space Quest album or any other Sierra-related thing, they'd be in my good graces for life ^_^

Where's Descent? Three games with a couple of expansion packs = lots of music to pick from.

Seriously? No Descent? One of my favorite series ever, and nothing?

I know! It's a grave injustice that there's just two remixes of the series, quality remixes though they might be. It needs to be rectified.

I was thinking the same about OCR, so count me in! I probably won't finish it, and it won't be accepted either (3xOsc mix only atm), but let me claim Dirty Split Theme by Matthew Brown. Yeah, I know, freeware games ... but I like it.

Unfortunately, the initiative has a time restriction of up to year 2000. But freeware games, definitely cool! Nothing says they can't have awesome music. And be awesome games.

Just had a stray thought for music idea: the game Sapiens. It was a shareware game I played that came with a cd called Galaxy of Games III, where you're a neanderthal-ish person trying to survive in a world filled with bears, wolves, and rival tribes, some who want to trade with you and some who want anyone who isn't wearing one of their funny hats to be dead; had some really good beats and tribal feels to it. I could easily imagine it getting remixed into some sort of techno-ey or ethnic remix. I'll see if I can find it.

EDIT: Well, I found tons of places where you could download the game, but only one decent Youtube video with it strangely in mono. Anyone who wanted to remix it would probably be better off just downloading the game and listening to it in its originality, lol, but that'll at least give you a taste of it.
