TWO MORE TUNES today.
Also thought I'd show a little progression in the development of a tune.
Here's the 2600-ization of the title screen song from Wizards & Warriors:
Tommy whipped that up for me a few weeks ago on a whim, I guess.
Here's the 2nd draft: 2puck.zip For this one, I made the lower notes (in the first measure, the 2nd, 4th, etc.) a little softer, I made the countermelody articulated, and I tweaked the articulation a bunch until the notes "rang" a little. After listening to the original (NES) I also cut one note out of the countermelody. If I was going to use this for anything I'd probably do more polishing, starting with slightly fading out the last measure.
Aaaand: I also added another song to the "tunes" collection: I also redid some of the incidental code for that ROM: now the newest song is the song that plays by default (the trigger still will cycle through to the older songs) plus RESET no longer just restarts the binary - now it restarts the current song. I'm also trying to think of a good "music kernel" for this and similar binaries. Any ideas? The current one is a little chaotic.
