Missing tune in Agony Amiga game.

Post by Pero-Fotar » Sun Nov 06, 2005 9:52 pm

Hi!

I download Agony tunes from Un-Exotica and I notice that the start loader tune (before Tim Wright's piano intro) from the begining of the game is missing. The tune is cca. 30 sec long and it's rally great. This tune start to play when game start to loading. When this music is on, you can see how appear on the screen one old enchanter with a long white beard with incription ART & MAGIC. And on the end of this tune appear incription on the screen AGONY. Can someone help me??

Bye :)

Ey up!

I'm not sure if the Art & Magic intro uses a recognised/supported format. I've had a look at myself in the past and it's not just one big sample, there's a bit of sequencing going on.

It's possible that it may need to be turned into a Custom module - is anyone up for the challenge? :wink:
Cheers!

Uhm,...it's very weird that all tunes are ripped from this game accept this one. And all tunes from Agony are in MOD, AAM and CUST format.
If someone rip it or have idea where can I get it, please let me know. I really what to get this tune that I have complete Agony game music.

Thanx

Bye

Ey up!

[I thought I'd answer your e-mail on the forum rather than reply directly to you in case others are interested]

The game manual isn't very specific about which author composed which tune or tunes. Allister Brimble is credited and his music wasn't even used! :shock:

It might be worth your while contacting Don Adan at the Wanted Team website. He's currently responsible for the bulk of new replayer formats and custom modules and might enjoy this challenge.

AFAIK, he's still not got a replacement monitor/TV for his Amiga - and if he can't see what he's doing...

I got answer from Don Adan......
This is not a tune, this is special sample player routine integrated
with loader file. It can be adapted only as custom module, but is not easy,
because needs to add extra wait for correct voices synchronization. Also
I'm not sure if this is 100% system friendly routine.
Sorry, but this is not my priority to do, but maybe in the future I will
try to adapt this music.

Pa
Don Adan
