Retro PlayThrus C.I.D. Compacted Disk #024 Release!


Merry Christmas!  Well, that is kind of early, but not when we are doing another 25 days of Christmas over at YouTube.  And along with those posts, here is a compacted disk release that has some of those posts.  For the first time, STE demos are included.  So here is Retro PlayThrus C.I.D. Compacted Disk #024!

Christmas by Flash - Atari ST Demo - 25ish More Days of Christmas - Day [01/25]

 

And so it begins!  Again!  The Christmas season will soon be upon us!  Here is the first of 25 days or so of Atari demos. This time there will be ST, STe, and Falcon demos.  I can't say they are all Christmas-themed demos this time. Some just have Christmas in the name, it seems.  Here we have 'Christmas' by Flash.

Uncharted: Nate's Theme - Greg Edmonson - Chiptune Cover [007] (5x YM2149 PSG)

 

This is the last post of this type before the Christmas posts start rolling in on December 1st.  Here is a tune that some may recognize: "Nate's Theme" from Naughty Dog's Uncharted series of games.  This is another tune that I left on the cutting room floor, as I was unhappy with the lack of instrumental depth after chopping so much out for the 3 channel YM.

Atari ST Extra [032] Broken Sword II: The Smoking Mirror Intro in ScummVM on CT60 Falcon AdLib Audio

 

Here is the intro to the second title in the Broken Sword series, Broken Sword II: The Smoking Mirror.  This is another title taxing the CT60 equipped Falcon to the limit of what it can handle running ScummVM.

The Outer Limits (1995) Theme - John Van Tongeren & Mark Mancina - Chiptune Cover [006] (6x YM2149 PSG)

 

Here is the new Outer Limits TV theme!  I had considered this theme for Retro PlayThrus CD #22, the Halloween release, but I did not see any path towards getting a nice working rendition of this tune on the limited 3 channels.

Galactica 1980 Theme - Stuart Phillips - Chiptune Cover [005] (4x YM2149 PSG)

 


Here is a chip rendition of the Galctica 1980 theme by Stu Phillips.  I cannot really describe the difference between this theme and the original theme.  This theme is quite similar to the theme used in the reboot show as the Colonial National anthem.

Atari ST Extra [030] Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars Intro in ScummVM on CT60 Falcon AdLib Audio


Don't expect much here from this game intro.  The Atari ScummVM port can barely keep up with the rendering of the introduction DXA movie, but while the video and the sound are extremely out of sync, it is played back.

Atari ST Compacted Disk (CD) Scrollers [570] Automation CD #133

 


I don't know why, but when i see this pic from Automation CD #133, I instantly think of the game Leatherneck.

Twilight Zone - Golden Earring - Chiptune Cover [002] (2x YM2149 PSG)


Here is Golden Earring's song 'Twilight Zone' running in Arkos Tracker 2, with 6 channels of audio, which amounts to running off of 2 YM2149 PSG chips.  A version of this song, reduced to 3 channels to play on the Atari ST, appears on Retro PlayThrus CD #22 as the background music.

The Drift - Blackmill - Chiptune Cover [001] (5x YM2149 PSG)


And here today is born a new age, an age of...  Oops wrong script.  Welcome to a potential new series of video postings.  I say potential mainly because of the time investment it takes to create this specific type of content.  As of now, these videos, or songs, are basically creations from my attempts to take songs I like, and convert them for use with the series of Retro PlayThru's Compacted Disk menus I release on a monthly basis at the blog for the Atari ST.

Atari ST Compacted Disk (CD) Scrollers [561] Automation CD #131 Version 2


So here is Automation CD #131 V2, again, I do not see a noticeable difference between this menu and the original, but I am sure there is a binary difference.
