You could also just add &postcount= then the number. Like http://ocremix.org/forums/showpost.p...38&postcount=3
A mystery unlocked, after three years of participating actively on this site. Thanks a lot, I have no clue why I couldn't figure that out.

Thanks for your replies! I'm relieved my video isn't blocked in USA. I wonder in which countries it's blocked... Any ideas?

PS. Yay, another one!

Yeah I found a N64 gamerip in *.miniusf format and with track names (am I allowed to link to it here?). Like you said there are many tracks that inlcude "Dies Irae", modified or not:

01 Opening Theme & Altar of Skorne
05 Mountain Peak
07 Token Room (Minotaur & Sumner)
10 Mountain Dragon
14 Castle Treasury
27 Desecreated Temple & Ending Theme
29 Battle Towers
30 Battle Trenches
92 Unknown

You can also feel its influence (while not so clear nor strong) in many other tracks. Thanks Gario for drawing my attention to this, it's a great soundtrack. Maybe I try the game itself some day.

Bumbing an old thread with a new example:
EverQuest II - Dies Irae (at 0:00)

It's nice to see that my video is starting to bear fruit!

I don't know if this counts or not, but there's a remix that has a pretty heavy 'Dies Irae' presence, as well. May or may not be relevant, but it's cool, regardless (gotta thank Dhsu for pointing that one out to be a few years back :P).

Dies Irae is used as Wolfgang Krauser's theme in the Fatal Fury/King of Fighters series.

Here are a few different versions:

@Gario: That's a cool remix! It would work well as a BGM for a new game. Saved on hard drive.

@Retroman: That's actually a different Dies Irae compared to what I'm looking for (no shit sherlock!). Wolfgang Krauser's theme is Dies Irae from "Requiem Mass in D minor" composed by Wolfgang (!) Amadeus Mozart in 1791. Only transcribed to different video game console sound chips.

Requiem in D was one of Mozart's last works and it was left unfinished when he died. One of the biggest researched and argued subjects in classical music history has been (and is still) that to what extent is that piece composed by Mozart and which parts are compleated by other composers. But if I'm not completely mistaken Dies Irae is almost 100% Mozart.

The "Dies Irae" I'm looking for is the one composed in 13th century (maybe by Thomas of Celano) and which is used as a musical joke/game/easter egg by many other composers BUT it'd be fun to list usage of Mozart's Dies Irae in video games aswell.

These I could find with a quick search (beside Krauser's theme):

Still Life - Introduction
Command & Conquer: Red Alert - trailer

There are also many other Requiems (and therefore Dies Iraes) composed by other composers, for example Verdi, Dvořßk, Bruckner, Stavinsky etc. etc... Dies Irae from Verdi's Requiem is one of my all time favourite pieces of music (that bass drum!) but is it used on video game sountracks? Someone on VGMdb.net forums said that "producers of Kingdom Hearts asked Yoko Shimomura to compose something similar for Destati". Well they do bear resemblance in one place:

Verdi
Shimomura

Sorry for bumping my own old thread but maybe there's now new people around to find more examples (and spread my video)

ALSO: the dies irae by mozart (and verdi) seems also to be popular in vgm so I started to list them as well

-Fatal Fury 2 (Genesis)
-Fatal Fury 2 (???)
-The King of Fighters '96 (???)
-The King of Fighters '96 (???)
(are the more different ost versions of this one?)
Little King's Story - A King Defeated
(every piece of this OST seems to be a remix of a classical composition, neat!)

(couldn't find a proper youtube video)
Still Life - Intro
Call of Duty 5: World At War - ???
(never played, at what kind of place of the game does this play?
