Yes, there is nostalgia, only recently I went through some stuff that I hadn't backed up yet, like development stuff. That brings up memories of course. Some bad sectors but most is safe now Wink
Over the years I have checked msx.org, but it is in periods, sometimes more, sometimes less.
Money was definitely not our main driver. That's only (partly) true for our latest release Troxx. Expressing creativity, challenge ourselves, perfecting technical skills, aiming for Konami-like smoothness, building a cool image was what we strived for. But in the end (1993) we knew all ins and outs of the system, so it felt more and more like 'normal' work; that's when we decided Troxx would be the last release. The interview is probably from that period too. But for 90% it was passion and the money nice to have LOL!

ANMA productions were always outstanding, but to this day I'm especially still very impressed with the soundtrack of No Fuss.

The 'No Fuss' .AMU files are on MCCM Milennium CD1.

Check MUSICV1?.DI2 (there are 7 of these V1 music disks)

These are the file names:
gmnf1 (no fuss game music)
gmnf2 (no fuss game music)
gmnf3 (no fuss game music)
gmnf4 (no fuss game music)
gmnf5 (no fuss game music)
gmnf6 (no fuss game music)
gmnf7 (no fuss game music)
gmnf8 (no fuss game music)
gmnfend (no fuss, ending)
gameover (No Fuss, game over)
printer (no fuss, intro, also promo 1)
next (no fuss, puzzle completed)
start (no fuss, start puzzle)
tuffrap (no fuss, promo 2)

Ensure you start ANMA's RED in V1.
When RED is started, the RED disk is not needed anymore and you can safely insert disks with music files.

p.s.
Frantic, Troxx and RELAX were made with ANMA's RED v2.
A few .AMU files (rats.amu, dreig2g.amu) are on V1 disks, although they should be on V2 disks.

I already checked the disks, and like Manuel couldn't find No Fuss tunes Smile

I have them here, but I think it's fair to ask Martijn's (ehh, Knightram's) permission before sharing. He's the author.

Of course!

Maybe there is more to share, but I am not sure whether it is interesting after all those years LOL!

Well, interesting enough for nerds that hold up on this website! Wink

That's really weird. I have the original MCCM Millennium CD's and all (at least most) of the .AMU files are on my CD1....????
Sure there is no '[cddrive]:\SOFTWARE\COPYRGHT\ANMA' folder with 21 files in total, including:
-MUSICV1?.DI2 (7 files)
-MUSICV2?.DI2 (6 files)
?????

Anyway, I will contact Martijn (can take a while as latest contact was a few years ago).

I also found a little short manual of ANMA's RED. If you need that, let me know...

I hope Martijn (eh, Knightram) will read that. It's his merit. ANMA's RED was also full of effects and PSG drum imitation, that may have helped also.

stompetower: check that interview here: https://www.msx.org/sites/default/files/download/2017/03/MSX...
You actually referred to it in http://www.gamasutra.com/view/feature/6394/the_story_of_anma... :)

Anyway, thanks for ANMA. I also really enjoyed it. I remember I used to run TSOP on my Sony HB-G900P... before it was expanded. It hung up at "We've only just begun".... worked fine after I got the memory upgrade and such. Strange, when I try it now it explicitly says you need a 64kB MM (that MSX doesn't have it). So, I have no idea anymore why that happened...

I got Relax, Squeek and No Fuss with the disks of MSX-Mozaik :) And I got Frantic from you at the Tilburg fair. Ah memories.
