Captain Skyhawk OST: DOES IT EXIST ANYWHERE?

Recommended Posts

I really, really want to give the remix to the Captain Skyhawk OST, which had outstanding synthwork that has stuck in my head these last 20-odd years. Only thing is, I cannot find it ANYWHERE. The best I've got is the intro and game over music on youtube, all the rest is skipped or talked/FX'd over.

So, Question #1: Does anyone know where I can find the pure and full versions of the game music? Particularly the boss music and the in-between-level space station music.

Question #2: If nobody's got it, I'll have to do it myself. So, what is a good method for getting the sound from a ROM?

I'm sure my lowbie is showing, but I clicked on it and got a face full of weird characters. Is there music in there somewhere? Do I need some special program to exploit it?

it's an NSF file, for some reason your browser wants to open it up as a text file [mine did too], just right click on the link and save it. It's basically a file that emulates nintendo music instead of streaming it, making it a nice compact format. However, you'll need special players for it. I recommend either Winamp or XMPlay, and grabbing a plugin for those players called NEZPlug [NEZPlug will work with both Winamp and XMPlay]

Oh man I played this game hardcore when I was little.

It's such a bad game too. So difficult.

What other NES game makes you have to master flying perfectly into a space station to buy powerups or else you die?

...for that matter, what's an F-15 doing in space anyway?

This was the first and only game my dad bought us for the NES. I managed to beat it twice I think, but yeah it was tough!

It was all about scoring enough credits to max out the cannon upgrade after the first level set. Millionz of bulletz!

It was always such a rush on the levels that let you go REAL fast!
