#1435715 Nsfe Collection

Posted by Anonymotron on 11 November 2020 - 07:22 PM

I haven’t posted here so far this year, but I will take a moment to add my belated condolences for Disch, whose contributions I appreciate even if I never interacted with him personally.  I have some NSFe files I am working on slowly and I hope to push them over to WiiGuy’s DropBox drive before the end of the year.  Suffice it to say that I have not had much time for tagging in this maelstrom we call 2020.

 

Finally, thanks for the help, Blitz Lunar.  I’m slowly working through the Famicom list using YouTube OSTs, but if there are any more you can tackle it’s certainly a big help.  MrNorbert1994 ripped a more complete version of Double Moon Densetsu two years ago containing SFX and jingles not in Kingshriek’s original rip.  If you are having trouble arranging the NSFe with the proper play order, let me know and I'll be glad to assist.

 

On that note, here's Double Moon Densetsu/Legend of Doublemoon, tagged/timed/playlisted.

Happy end of the year, everyone!  WiiGuy, I'm glad you still stop by every once in a while but I completely understand your burnout.  I will probably make an update at some point in the coming months but I've had to take a break as well.  Norbert, thanks as always for your fixes and updates (and thanks to Karmic and NewRisingSun as well).  Happy New Year!

Happy Akira day, everyone!  The story (according to the Famicom game at least) begins today, 31 years after WWIII, so I'm personally thankful that the beautiful city of Tokyo has never been decimated by telekinetic superhumans.  Anyway, the reason I name-check this game in particular is that it's part of the latest batch of uploads to WiiGuy's DropBox.  I'd like to thank MrNorbert1994 for his hard work in re-ripping this title, especially given how difficult it was, plus for his playthrough on YouTube that helped me tag the songs.  His work was also invaluable for Maharaha (another new title tagged) and the Eggerland (FDS) fix with SFX.  Other new FDS tags include most of the Big Challenge! series (apart from Go! Go! Bowling), most of the Famimaga Disk volumes (except Vol. 6: Janken Disk Shiro), Cocona World, Dandy: Zeuon no Fukkatsu, and Risa no Yousei Densetsu.  Most of these were tagged using YouTube videos posted by Yamada-kun (https://www.youtube....pU-fyH5vroo2lEd), so if anyone reading this has encountered similar VGM playlists that could help me tag more Famicom titles, please let me know.  NES title fixes (again thanks for Norbert as well as Karmic) are M.U.L.E., Rally Bike, and Short Order/Eggsplode!  I also re-tagged Double Dragon II & III based on official OSTs.  I know from a recent YouTube video that, like me, WiiGuy has been experiencing some NSFe burnout so his 8-Bit Stereo work has slowed down, so I don't know what that will mean for the timing of him making these files publicly available.

Long time no post.  After a break from NSFe tagging due to other priorities (plus needing a hiatus), I posted a new update to WiiGuy's DropBox.  Mostly it's an A-Z (literally) batch of SFX, Dendy, and PAL Optimized files primarily fixed up by MrNorbert1994.  There are some new titles, including both SimCity files (by Chris Covell and Norbert although I'm sure everyone reading who wants an NSFe has already tagged their own).  The Famicom music that is newly tagged in this collection includes Deep Dungeon IV: Kuro no Youjutsushi, Eggerland (FDS), Eggerland: Meikyuu no Fukkatsu, Hokuto no Ken, Hottaman no Chitei Tanken, Kero Kero Keroppi no Daibouken, Lost Word of Jenny: Ushinawareta Message, Rampart (Konami Famicom version), Saiyuuki World, Smash Pink Pong (FDS), and Zombie Hunter.  So now the Eggerland/Lolo series is complete, but the Deep Dungeon series is still missing part III.

Hi folks!  I know it's been a while, but I needed to slow down and take a break from NSFe tagging.  I just uploaded quite a few files to WiiGuy's DropBox account, most of which are SFX updates (many from Imagineering/Mark Van Hecke), but some of which are fixes with new tracks (Street Cop with the correct Title Screen, Hogan's Alley).  Speaking of new tracks, does anyone know where tracks 10 & 11 in the fixed Caveman Games NSF occur in-game?  The only new titles to cross off the list are the European version of Wario's Woods and the Vs. version of Ice Climber.  I did have one question for MrNorbert1994: what's the difference between the PAL Optimized, PAL 50Hz, and/or Dendy tracks within the same NSF file?  Keep up the good work, and the same goes for Karmic, NewRisingSun, and Gil Galad.

Who made the NSFE for this one...

 

I probably did.  If I remember correctly I was waiting for a new rip with improved DPCM, but it's been a while.  Point me to a better NSF and I'll be happy to fix the NSFe.

 

The latest DropBox update for WiiGuy to sort crosses three North American titles off the to-do list: Legends of the Diamond: The Baseball Championship Game, Major League Baseball, and The Mutant Virus: Crisis in a Computer World, plus prototypes for Hard Drivin' and Robert Byrne's Pool Challenge.  Once more, great work MrNorbert1994, Karmic, and NewRisingSun.  Also included are fixes for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons: Hillsfar, California Games (NTSC & PAL), Radia Senki: Remei-Hen, Raid on Bungeling Bay, Super Cars, and Tecmo World Wrestling (NTSC & PAL), plus some other random SFX updates.

you two are doing gods work

 

MrNorbert1994 and Karmic are the ones doing that.  I'm more like the secretary or treasurer of the club.  Kidding aside, as a programmer I had wanted to help out but I couldn't make it through Gil Galad's ripping tutorial, so I'll leave it to the pros.

Thanks for the fixes on Athletic World and Racket Attack.  I'll upload them soon along with some other new NSFe files.

Hi everyone.  This is just a quick update: I’ve uploaded more than 50 files to WiiGuy’s DropBox, but I won’t list them all this time since it’s all SFX (and VFX) updates and PAL files from MrNorbert1994 and Karmic.  WiiGuy hasn’t updated the NSFe Collection (or posted here) in nearly a year, so I hope he's doing well.

 

MrNorbert1994, you asked for instances of NSFs with problems, and I have a few:

The Athletic World PAL rip seeps to have the triangle channel on track 2 that is supposed to be on track 3 instead.

F-117A Stealth Fighter’s VFX sound garbled to me (although that might be a “feature” rather than a bug, I’m not sure…I played through the game to tag the track names but don’t remember the VFX).

Racket Attack (NTSC and PAL) have a square 1 channel melody on track 8 that I believe should be on track 9.

Finally, Karmic’s rip of Mickey’s Safari in Letterland (with VFX) only has partial songs but not the looped versions in Gil Galad’s original rip.

 

I know the NSFe updates are far less important than the actual NSF ripping, so keep up the good work and thanks for posting the results on NesDev.

Ahh, Tecmo Super Bowl.  A game could be produced with the rendering power to depict every bead of sweat on all the players and spectators in the game and it still wouldn't be as fun as TSB.  I think there's a couple minor SFX missing, but the songs are all there as far as I know.

 

I reripped Tecmo Super Bowl.

According to the doc, some SFXs were missing, songs?

 

I need somebody to verify my rip about it.

 

(Because I'm sure hell no gonna play through this game.)

Happy Halloween!  MrNorbert1994 and Karmic NSF updates are much appreciated, but I admit I’m not able to keep up as well as I’d like.  In addition to everything else going on, I had an external hard drive issue that’s required my attention.  I have two pieces of free advice for everyone:

1. If you can’t afford cloud storage, drives are cheap, so back up your most crucial and/or sentimental data using multiple locations/methods.
2. Testdisk is your friend.  If that doesn’t work, its companion Photorec is your friend.
Anyway, my latest update includes the newly fixed (and SFX tagged) versions of Adventure Island III, Mario Bros. Classic, Metroid, and Tecmo Super Bowl, as well as SFX labelled (but not tagged) files for Battleship, Bio Force Ape, Challenger, Dynamite Bowl, Galactic Crusader (with the square one channel fixed), Galaxian, Little Nemo: The Dream Master, Noah’s Ark (plus NTSC Conversion), Quattro Arcade: Stunt Buggies, Side Pocket (the PAL version with different music), Toobin’, Treasure Master, and the Famicom Ys trilogy.  I also timed the new Ganbare Goemon Gaiden 2: Tenka no Zaihou NSFe that NewRisingSun had arranged/tagged.

I hope my fellow Americans enjoyed the eclipse.  Today’s update to Wiiguy’s DropBox includes Famicom-only titles Dragon Scroll: Yomigaerishi Maryuu, Family Tennis, Hoshi wo Miru Hito (translated as Stargazers), Kyouryuu Sentai Zyuranger (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers), and all five educational Keisan Game installments.  I’m not going to list every updated file, but notable titles have PCM samples (Battletoads, Bible Buffet, and The Great Waldo Search), new US versions (Chubby Cherub, Golf, M.U.S.C.L.E., and Ultima: Quest of the Avatar), new tracks (Classic Concentration, Heavy Shreddin’, Impossible Mission II, and Paperboy 2), and plenty of SFX files for Camerica, Hi-Tech Expressions, and Imagineering games thanks to all the great work from Karmic and MrNorbert1994.  NewRisingSun also provided tagged (and much appreciated) NSFes for his new FDS rips of Green Beret and Deep Dungeon II: Yuushi no Monshou.

I edited my previous post for clarity. I can play the Bible Buffet NSF just fine, I just can't figure out the melody of those particular tracks. Now I'm curious if Battletoads is more difficult to rip or to complete (not that I can do either 🤓).

During my break from NSFe tagging, I see Karmic and MrNorbert1994 have been busy.  Great work!  I have uploaded some of the recent files to WiiGuy’s DropBox.  I’ve tagged Karmic’s work on King of Kings: The Early Years, Menace Beach, and Spiritual Warfare.  Three new FDS titles in this set (tagged with the help of VGMRips) are Ginga Deshou: Galaxy Odyssey, Super Lode Runner, and Super Lode Runner II, and I also included the Blaster Master prototype and the homebrews 8Bit Riki Illustrations & 8Bit Music Power.  For the pre-existing titles quite a few Mark Van Hecke/Imagineering games now have SFX and PAL versions (Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, Barbie, Home Alone 2, Ren & Stimpy, Swamp Thing, and a complete revamp of The Simpsons: Bart vs. the World), for KID Low G Man and G.I. Joe: The Atlantis Factor are updated, for EA (Rob Hubbard) The Immortal and Skate or Die 2 now have SFX and VFX, and David Wise is represented by SFX files for Double Dare, Wizards & Warriors, and World Games.  The rest of the revisions are Big Nose Freaks Out, Dr. Chaos, Hebereke (and U-four-ia), Klax, and the PAL version of Metroid.  If anyone can help me tag the jingles in the new AD&D: Hillsfar NSF (tracks 12-18), please post below.

http://store.bravewa...ndtrack-vol-1-2 - we finally have track names for Ninja Gaiden

 

I've updated the three Ninja Gaiden (and two Shadow Warrior PAL version) titles with the track names listed on Bandcamp above.  I have also updated Exciting Billiard using the new NSFe that includes the Ending / Staff Roll track.

Does anyone recognize Qbert track 4 as belonging anywhere in-game? I tried looking for it, not sure if it's just unused. Thought it was kind of interesting, has a perpetually-delaying echo effect in the second channel. Every loop it gets further and further behind (by 3 frames each time).

 

This tune (which I named "Transition" in the NSFe) occurs briefly between the Finale and one last cutscene.  You can see when it occurs in this video of the ending.
