Introduction

Set of two music disks published in September 1991 by the Unicorn Corporation. The main replayer is on disk 1 while all the concerned songs are on disk 2. An upgraded version was also sold as MCM Public Domain disk B56.

Almost all parts use MSX-MUSIC, only 3 songs for a hidden replayer use MSX-AUDIO. The FAC Soundtracker 1 format is used for all songs (except in the Terminator promo on the upgraded version).

Note: You can optionally put these files on a dedicated FAC Soundtracker 1 music disk.

For more tips about this format, check the FAC Music Disk 1 Wiki page, especially to play the songs on MSX1.
