Title: For rexbeng -- Battle-oh Squad-Ah-Rhon Intro/Title Music on CPC
Post by: SuTeKH/Epyteor on 01:48, 16 September 13
I really haven't had time to look at this any more than I had a few weeks ago... so here's my version of BATTLE SQUADRON INTRO/TITLE as it is at present. If I get any time in the future, then I'll update it properly.

As a bonus (of sorts), I've also dumped my HIGHSCORE conversion on the disc, too!





EDIT: Extra credits:
Original title tune arrangement by Reed/Fairlight (8-channel .xm format).
Original highscore tune arrangement by Okeanos/Nuance (10-channel .it format).

Both tunes sound a little weird in WinAPE due to the massive difference between volumes "E" and "F" (I keep meaning to convert tunes without resorting to FULL VOLUME, but it's too easy to do and I can't be arsed messing around) therefore please listen in CPCe, JavaCPC or real hardware!

The title screen image is 160x256x16 and so dumped onto an overscan screen... wasting a good 14k or so, but there you go!

Really nice highscore title. I am not fan of the main themis, but that's not a conversion problem, only the original tune :-).

WOW!!
That pic looks amazing, really close to the Amiga!
Excellent conversion of the tunes. Also I'm a fetish for Hybris ;)

I couldn't find a lot of HYBRIS resources (and I can't find my FC13 .adf), so here's a very VERY short ingame tune and the HYBRIS loader screen.
The tune was converted to .mod by Estrayk/Paradox and to .sks by SuTeKH/Epyteor using STArkos1.2 & Arkos1.0.

(It's in .cdt format 'cos I had trouble with the tape version of my SPY VS SPY rework and thought I'd see if it was a fault with my code or something to do with the .cdt build. This has been tested on WinAPE.)

Only just seen this.  Battle Squadron is one of my all time fave shooters (still often play it on WinUAE and I even somewhat tolerate the touchscreen on my phone just to play the more recent mobile version) and I LOVE the music to it.  I'd love it more if the in-game tune was in there as well but this is just so cool hearing that classic theme redone in CPC style and it works very well.

The loading image of the Amiga game looks great here too. 

Real nice job.  :)

I just remembered that one of my early attempts at spriting on CPC once I got actual decent spriting software was of the player ships from Battle Squadron cos at the time I wished there was a CPC version so I wouldn't have to keep going round my friend's place to play his Amiga.  But then I got an A1200 so I didn't have to (though sometimes I did anyways cos it's awesome in 2 player).

You're welcome.

There's a 3 tune version of this in the Game ROM thread (before it was abandoned due to trolling). However, I'll post the working disk here; the working files are hidden, leaving just the executable.

All I need now is to find a version of the "completed" music and the soundtrack would be... er... complete!

Yay!  Thanks! 

Good times.  I can recall walking about in school in a sort of happy strutting way whistling that tune.  Which might be a bit weird but yeah happy days of playing Battle Squadron in 2 player during school lunch times cos my best friend lived next door to the school.

This does sure having a good marching beat though.  I may strut some more.
