Post by: TRON5000 on August 07, 2022, 07:27:20

i cant found a compilation with just the game theme songs.
I only found compilations which thounds of MODs. Example: Game A Level 1 Level 2 aso
Does anybody have a compilation with just the Main Theme songs of the most popula games ?

Hi

That's quite an extensive list. If any of those are in mod files, you should be able to find them here (Amp), Modarchive or even Modland if the mods contain the game name in the filename, else you'll need to hunt them down.

You could also try http://www.mirsoft.info/gamemods-archive.php
Change the platform to Amiga in the drop down and look for those particular games.

The other problem you might have is, if the tracks are not in module format, Modland is the better option as it contains many other custom/exotic formats from the Amiga.

I'm not sure if sites like Demozoo or Kestra carry game modules (copyright issues), but Asle will be better to answer that. There are probably other sites that may archive what your looking for though.

Happy hunting!

for Amiga game music, the best source is Exotica : https://www.exotica.org.uk/wiki/UnExoticA/Games_By_Title/A
Only Protracker game music ? https://www.exotica.org.uk/wiki/UnExoticA/Games_By_Format/Protracker
Or Noisetracker ? https://www.exotica.org.uk/wiki/UnExoticA/Games_By_Format/NoiseTracker
etc.

Hopefully this helps

And just to add to Asle' post, there is also a web front-end for Modland at Exotica so it's possible to search the ftp site through a browser.

If your familiar with ftp, Modland better accessed via a ftp client for download purposes. The good thing about Modland, the folders are sorted by format/artist, so protracker modules easy to find if you know who made the tune.

LHA pretty much the Amiga standard for compression along with Powerpacker/zip. I should imagine Aminet if your using real hardware (amiga) or emulating, pretty sure LHA is on there.

If your using Windows based machine, most stuff like Winzip/Rar automatically handles lha compressed files I think as I haven't had an issue with Lha files for years.

On Exotica, I have to right click on the download and 'Save link as' to download any files, I am on a Windows PC, so nobodies perfect!!  :o

But this are just less ones.

Next archiv is for the best cracktunes.... what a work but worth it.

@ASLE

This AMIGA Exotica search engine is so powerfull.
Search via Group, name of the demo or game and even just the MOD name is possible.
Thanx so much.
