UPDATE: The Hi-res tracks are online!!!
The first thing you’ll (sadly) find out about this release is that it is lacking the hi-res downloads – why?
Unluckily, one of the parts of the server were DOA (Dead On Arrival – broken) so I have to send it back and wait for it to arrive again, thus I had to upload the tracks myself with my snail slow connection and I managed to only have the MP3 and FLAC ones online (which is a bummer, the 96/24 tracks really shines in this release).
The second thing you’ll notice is that this is no ordinary release, it is a special release due to a 6 month old request made by user Pig_Saint in the forums. My sincerest apologies to him for having him wait so long, the request system was clearly flawed and it had to be changed.
He requested only the omake tracks from the game, here’s what he said about this rare gem:
“Well… I’ll try to explain what “omake music” means with my English. Game soundtrack released by Technosoft years ago. Perfect tracks including some awful unpublished remasterings. But this game has ten Omake themes (I think omake means “extra” in Japanese) NOT included on this official CD. To unlock these tracks in sound test it’s necessary to beat the game in any difficult level. In options menu, you can select “0 Lives” and get the 100 tries for every continue (600 lives total) and it’s easy to complete (game is so hard even in easy), but it has ten long levels and it takes its time. After beat the game, just go to options and omake tracks will be added to sound test. Sometimes I hear these tracks on some YouTube RIPs, but this bad quality burst me into tears.
I think this is probably one of the best soundtracks in videogame history.”
This time you’ll burst in tears of joy as this is a truly amazing release and it sounds awesome although quite a bit bassy! I was thinking about equalizing it a bit to tone the bass down a bit but then it would be against our principles (and, besides, you can tone down the bass by yourself if you need it).
Now, when will the HD tracks will be online along with the torrent?
Sadly, I don’t know.
It depends on the seller and when he’ll ship back the part I need to fix my server.
Meanwhile we’ll go one with another release the next week – we’ve lost a huge amount of time due to these technical problems and we don’t want to delay our other releases anymore!
Alright, that’s it, go straight to our Media page to get the new release and enjoy!
