hey guys. just now i've witnessed the whole new world of ancient chiptunes, waiting for me to hear them.
i'm talking about PC-8801, PC-98x1 eras.
that's when Uncharted waters and Nobunaga games were hot stuff.
here you can find ~2500 game soundtracks, including those above http://snesmusic.org/hoot/v2/?system=PC-98&page=45
to play them you'll need a program called HOOT
1. Get this, HOOT
and extract it into a folder called "HOOT" .
2. Extract These
to the same directory.
3. Extract These
to the same directory too. Say yes to overwrite if it asks.
4. Go here X68k, PC88
, and here PC98
and download the zips of a games soundtrack into it's respective folders.
5. Open HOOT.exe and be blown away!
HOOT command keys:
ARROW KEYS - Highlights chosen selection. (bottom of the screen)
ENTER - Opens folders and plays song titles. (Bottom of the screen)
ESC - Move backwards through folders. (bottom of the screen)
0 - Restarts song
P - Stops song. (sort of)
1-8 - Mutes and unmutes channels.

P.S. i've remembered aboud PC98 stuff thanks to Yosuke Yasui, his music is just like the old times(the best of those).
