Looking for a menu

Post by Gryzor »

So, there was this menu, don't remember the group, don't remember the games :( But on its intro screen I remember it having a sort of goblin? dwarf? on the left side smiling slyly, and the tune (which I'm actually looking for) was an excellent rendition of a tune from Pia Zadora's "When The Rain begins to Fall" (https://youtu.be/aahViYznVTQ?t=49 , this should take you to around the 49-sec mark).

Anyone remembers that?

Thanks!

Haha that's so true :D On second thought maybe it was just a boy and my memory plays some games... Also I'm pretty sure it was wearing a baseball cap or something.

But that was mostly to assist with searching (gonna look at some screenshots), the main point (at least for me) is the tune playing.

Thanks for the pointers!

Is it a chip tune, digi or sample?

Good question, it was a chip tune!

No, it wasn't that either, today I'm going to look as many screens add possible... It was most probably from a major group, since I learned of the rest, the minor groups, only much later on...

I was already thinking what I was going to write:

I looked at what I think is every screenshot of every release of all major groups and did not find it; but the trip down memory lane I got was more than worth it!

...and then, with just a couple of pages open to check: https://www.exxoshost.co.uk/atari/games ... N2015D.htm

A_385!!!

Thanks for the help guys :)

Now that's an awesome tune, was it ripped from somewhere?

Over a couple of summers in 1993-1994 me and my pal ripped and collected 1040 mods. Why 1040? We had 100 floppies and we were determined to use them. It was also just enough to fit on one 100Mb Zip disk by 1997.

That tune is among them! I have the whole collection on my phone now.
