By the way:

1) Did anyone end it?
2) Have you found any bugs?
3) Does anyone in here has access to a jurassic computer, like a P133? I'd like to know if the remake would run in one of these and with what framerate...

no bugs until now.
i'd have just one suggestion which is imho : the music gets on my nerves extremely quickly, an option allowing to shot the pianist would be awesome Big smile

J-War, you're not the only one complaining... Smile

The original Skooter had a key to toogle music on/off. I'll include in the remake one key to adjust sound and music volume. Just to remember, anyone in here can help me and edit the MIDI songs that are in the sounds folder of the game?

You already have the midis. Both are in the sounds folder of the remake already.

But perhaps they are not the best option. There are notes missing from them (fMSX logs PSG as MIDI, but in a poor way). I´d suggest you to log the title screen song as a WAV (ParaMSX is specially good in that) and then try to create new versions...

What do I want...

It seems to me that the author deliberately tried to make the songs sound like a piano (the second song is the Maple Leaf Rag by Scott Joplin, a piano song). So I´d simply like the new songs to be piano versions, just like the original. And very faithful to the originals. Or in another way... Just do to the music what I did to graphics... Improve their quality without changing their appearance. By the way, just now I realized that you created nice MSX versions of other songs... Sorry if this task is too simple (and boring) for you.

I understand but then, you basicaly need a transcription of the original songs and i am afraid i am not interested at all to do it for two reasons :
- The original songs as they are presented don't fit my tastes.
- This is realy a boring task Smile
I am deeply sorry, i can't help at the moment.

I understand, J-War... But perhaps, wouldn't you be interested in remastering then? I mean, keeping the piano as the main instrument, adding some more instruments in the background and improving the piano (chords with more than three channels)?

Would it be a copyright problem if you just used a .wav or mp3 of the Maple Leaf Rag, played by someone on a real piano?

then the one who played it on the real piano has the performing (c) .. basically if you cover someone else's tune, then the arranger gets a bit of the composer's share ..

If I'm not wrong (I never looked more than once into those details) the arranger gets 33% and the original composer gets 66% .. that's ofcourse based on the part that was meant for the composer anyway.. which is usually 66% of the whole sum, since 33% goes to a publisher Smile

Then there's (in NL) the SENA organisation, who control performing rights.. (like, if you hire violin-players for a cd--recording, then the violin players get paid from SENA money) ..

anyway..
(1) you use that tune, after contacting and arranging something with rights-organisations

(2) you don't care
