  1. That wasn't an insult, it was a general statement not directed at anyone in particular. But i guess that shoe fit, so you decided to put that thing right on, didn't you? 😆 Buh-bye!
  2. I see absolutely nothing wrong with creating (or not creating) games that take advantage of secondary expansion chips on the cartridge to enhance the experience. NES games did it (especially for sound), SNES games did it, and even a few commercial Atari games from the back in the day used expansion chips. If you feel it's needed for the type of game you're making, then do it. People who piss and moan about using or not using expansion chips are just elitists/purists fishing for something to bitch about...
  3. Just tried the demo... this might be the most insane thing I've ever seen pulled off on the 2600! 😮 And there's a lot of insane homebrew for ye olde VCS! How did you manage so many sprites on a horizontal line?! Even with flickering and the phosphor fade effect, it's still absolute madness!
  4. Yea, pulling off soft, mellow, relaxing stuff on the POKEY isn't easy. It's like the YM2612, in a way, in that it likes to BANG and be loud. The 2A03 or even the SN7 is much better at being soft and mellow. The POKEY is better for loud, banging tracks, though.
  5. Oh! That! Yea, it's really noticeable when the percussion starts kicking in... i was pleasantly surprised by how the bass sounded with the polycounter being reset after every percussion hit. The original actually has some funky stuff going on with the bass, and this ended up sounding similar.
  6. Nice! What is the "bass orbit" effect you mentioned? There might be a weird note or two compared to the SNES OST, i don't know. The song data is loosely based on the 2A03+N163 cover that comes with Famitracker, but obviously needed to condensed and changed a bit to fit on the 4-channel POKEY. I went to some pretty great lengths to wage total war against the POKEY's tendency to cancel/amp when two of the same note on different channels, including doing some "arp detuning" among other things, so maybe that's it. <shrug>
  7. BLEEP BLOOP! RMT and XEX attached below... DKC2_StickerbrushSymphony01b.zip
  8. Just some Ys-ter leftovers, lol... RMTs and XEXes below Ys - Feena01d.zip
  9. Hey, I like how you've replaced the vibrato with tremolo! I had to do some acrobatics to get the vibrato to sound okay, and even then I had to omit it from the high notes because it just sounded too aggressive. This would be great to do on high notes, while the low notes still do regular vibrato.
  10. Thanks! Glad you like it! Slightly updated RMT/XEX with slightly less note cancelling below Ys II - Too Full With Love01d.zip
  11. Happy Ys-ter! 4-Channel, Mono XEX and RMT file zipped below Ys II - Too Full With Love01c.zip
  12. XM really sounds like the way... One single POKEY chip for all games to use
  13. Interesting! I can certainly optimize for 4x16. Both this map and future stage maps. That's useful info!
