Thanks guys!  :D


Gotta blame it on Devilmarkus, he asked me for the cover many months ago, but I just finished it a few days ago, thanks to my slackery  ;D

Great technique.

But the melody isn't quite accurate.

Where exactly? I can release a fixed version on the music disk.

I guess it's because you didn't use all 10 audio channels... (You know? For every ear = 1 channel)
When you put your ear on a hot stove, you can smell how stupid you are ...

Yeah, really nice tune. Just wondering what speed it runs at (as in 50Hz, 100Hz, 300Hz etc) as it sounds quite different to most other AY tunes...

Standard 50hz, made in Arkos Tracker. I'm not even using "hard sounds" or "sync buzzer" sounds, just good old square waves.


The thing is that the source material is pretty good, a great chiptune.
