Looking for a menu music

Post by yugz »

Hi
I'm new here and I don't know if it's the right place to post this but I'm searching the music of a menu and I only have a few details to give in order to find it ...

It's been 30 years since I listened to it so I only remembre the menu and the music. The menu was a static image of a knight, standed in front of a cave. The cave was in the background,the knight is in the foreground in the middle of the screen looking at the cave entrance. And a dragon is getting out of the cave, we can see his angry face while the knight is preparing to fight. I remember this image being of good quality.

And above all this, the music, with a strong medieval feeling. I remember thinking that it could have been borrowed from ghost n goblins or a game like that.

Unfortunately I don't remember the game but it wasn't anything heroic fantasy, I thought it was funny that they chose this image.

Does that ring a bell to someone ? Any help will be greatky appreciated. Thank you !

Ups, It's not the right music :( The graphic is ok, and it seems that it's the right disk, I played Populous a lot, but it's not the music I'm looking for ... Could it be possible that different version of those disks exist ?

Hey,
I think Automation reused a bunch of menus around this time.

Have a look at Exxos's Automation archive, as he has screenshots of every disk :)

The Bible is the definitive list,

#81 was indeed re-released with Populous extra data, however the menu used the same 'Blasteroids' music.
