  1. I, too, think this is a pretty good mix, but I do have a question.

    Is it just me, or is anyone else getting a bit of a garbled section around 1:19 in this mix? (The garbling I speak of sounds like someone was recording this off an audio tape and accidentally hit the fast-forward button for about a second or so.)

    I'm going to try downloading it from a different mirror to see if that fixes the problem - the copy I have is from ocrmirror.org, so it might just be a bad upload to that mirror.

    EDIT: Just finished downloading it from the iiens.net mirror, and the same garbling is present in that copy too.

  2. Wow. Just . . . . WOW. This actually sounds like something that'd be used in a modern remake of Raptor.

    If I were you, I'd submit it. I think it's worthy of being on OCR (but then again, it's also music from a game I particularly like, so I might just be a teeny bit biased there :P).

    (By the by, Fireslash - that pulsing sound is from the end-of-level boss encounters: I think it was supposed to be a cross between a "Hey, here comes the big badass" warning and the sound their engines/generators/etc. make.)

  3. A couple years ago I was trying to get all the old cool games that I used to love. I grabbed Tyrian2000, Whackey Racers? I think. And Scorthed Earth; which is the best.

    If it's the game I'm thinking of - where you pick a go-kart-driving animal and drive around a bunch'a different tracks hurling hedgehogs and other such things at your opponents - the game's called Wacky Wheels.

    (Which could possibly use a little remixing, I suppose . . . :P)

  4. Judging by that clip, Rayza, I'd say that this is gonna be a shoo-in.

    By the way, I replayed Tyrian recently, and this is the music that's used in the last level of Episode 1 *up to* the encounter with the final boss of Episode 1. Once you hit the boss, it changes to a tune called "One Mustn't Fall".

    (Which, incidentally, is one of two OMF references in the game. The other is in one of the datacubes - a message from one of your old friends who, unfortunately, is unable to assist you "since your battle is with spaceships and not HARs".)

  5. Personally, I think this is a pretty good mix as it stands. There are a few parts where it could use a little tweaking - for example, the part where the second set of hrns comes in around 2:35 - but overall it's a very nice mix.

    (And I'm glad to see that SOMEONE's doing more Raptor mixes! This game deserves remixage.)

    Only one other quibble about the mix, really - are you sure that you're using just the Wave 6 music?

    I swear I can hear fragments from another piece in there (it sounds to me like the stuff from Wave 1 - either that or the "you've been shot down, game over" music).

  6. I'd love to see some remixes done from this game, particularly the opening theme for the first episode. (I always found that one a bit creepy, tbh, and I'd appreciate it if that creepiness could be kept - providing, of course, someone actually does decide to remix that track.)

    I've only been able to find one working archive - World of Game MIDs - that has music from the series, though, and they've only got the music from episodes 1 and 3.

    I don't know if the tracks ever had names, I'm afraid, but I do know which one the main theme from Episode 1 of Dare to Dream is: the third MIDI in this archive.

  7. My question is, do you guys have anyone down for album art?

    I have some limited skill, so if you want I'd be willing to come up with a few roughs for use as a basis for final album-art designs.

    (Also, I've created CD-label layouts inspired by the album art that Claude and Mr. Firecracker did for Dark Side of Phobos, if anyone's interested.)
