Hi, good to see you're stil working in it and new things are coming.

 

 

I always love the IK musics.

This is or not Rob Hubbard's original?

Anyone (a Musician opinion...) knows anything about origins of the IK and IK+ songs?

 

I never get a real prove nor explanations anywhere, just some people talking anbout it, like in IK C64 video at you Tube:

This is my favorite Hubbard tune. There's some unnecessary looping and the shifts at 4:05 and 8:55 aren't very polished. I don't hold these details against the song since altogether it's one of the most progressive c64 tracks ever made. Very impressive. btw. If you haven't noticed yet, you can upload over 10min videos, the actual limit is just under 11min.

Love Rob Hubbard...however it sounds like the theme to Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence by Ryupchi Sakamoto. Rob's best tune is probably Zoids or LastV8

isn't this an enhanced "cover" of forbidden colours by sylvain/sakamoto?

First about Game it's not very often that someone could adapt Instruments into Games and they look very, very good. Probably better in computer for someone like you that doesn't like original but think this Music is great on IK!...

 

Something like it would be good to see some Michael Nyman (if there aren't already...) musics on computers, but on 8bits (if possible):

(who don't remembers the great Epic Film "PIANO").

I spent some money to see him one of the times he come to lisbon in Teatro são Luiz and it is... "no words"

PIANO

 

This are songs of the Heaven (not ours Heaven :D, the other one)

 

Celestial Musics, voices of Heaven like: Enya, LizFrazer (Cocteau Twins), Liza Gerard (Dead Can Dance), All About Eve, This Mortal Coil, Mystiere des Voix Bulgaires,...)

ENYA

 

 

Or some Portuguese:

DIVA

MADREDEUS

And our great Modern Musician (our Nyman/Sakamoto...), Rodrigo Leão:

 

 

Yes, this was a Game Thread but I couldn't resist to get some nostalgic...

(you have some music to ear this Night, you can get your A8 alone for a bit ;))

Greetings.

You are refering the C64 vocals,... for some time I thought you didn't like Sakamoto's song... ;)

Greets to you.

Forget many, but if you don't mind:

 

Spanish (1975):

 

And all from Ireland. I think I will born Irish if I wasn't born portuguese.

Even Folk, Pop: POGUES, CORRS and CRABERRIES.

This one always make me crying:

 

Enough for Today... I am begining to be a little depressed and crying :sad: :sad:

 

 

 

:thumbsup: people!...

I assume not.. (but maybe they added 8 years worth of amazing upgrades to it ;))

 

 

Have you seen this funny video?

 

Funny video. I'm surprised it has only 6000 views after 11 years.

I've never seen that video before! It is funny. But what version are they using for sound and music? The music sounds AWFUL...is that C64?!?

I suspect it's probably a modified music rip or a synthesized repro.

It sounds terrible compared to real POKEY music, and I'm pretty sure I've heard the C64 version before too, and while I still preferred the POKEY I'm used too, I think it was good, hence my questioning this was C64, Since the C64 was the more popular computer, it's usually the go-to for music rips from old games anyway.

That's true fan dedication though, not just making a video like that in humorous "honor" of IK, but doing up the entire backstage set painting of the level from the game too. Costumes, bonus level head-bang prop, etc.

My Son and I have been playing International Karate Enhanced for the past week or so and have really enjoyed it. I wondered if anyone had ported over IK+ so was pleased to see this thread! We've played IK+ a fair bit today and it's brilliant, very smooth and the background looks superb; I certainly wouldn't mind contributing to see it finished :)

 

Here's the link to the download of IK+

I really hope it gets done by Pavros one day (he did great job with IK EE and has been doing wonderful things with IK+), but on the other hand, when you realize IK+ port project was started back in 2001... :roll:

Unfortunately no, @pavros keeps silent regarding IK+ for quite a long time, but hey, he likes to surprise on occasion (e.g. IK E.E. 2014), so let's hope the day will come...😌
