My Video Game music
Somehow over the years I managed to get some of my “music” published and put into various freeware and retail products. Honestly, most of the midi music listed below is quite painful to listen to – considering my absolute and complete lack of musical talent. A number of these songs were generated by abysmal emulations of other game songs that I enjoyed, created specifically to fit the Doom style of game music. Keeping those two facts in mind, coupled with my lack of reasonable tools to generate good midi work when these files were generated, leaves us with a large collection of musical train wrecks cleverly disguised as music.
ALL of the Doom engine midis below were generated in the same fashion. I would create a 4 channel .mod inside ScreamTracker (not a midi editor) then convert that .mod file to a .mid using a cool little program mod2midi.exe. After that, I would create additional tracks and convert them into other .mid files, finally loading each .mid all into my crippled Gravis Ultrasound midi software and combine all the tracks together, fix-up the drum channels and hope for the best. The results were often beyond painful…
Some of the .mod files I used to generate various midis are included below, plus a few other game relevant .mod and .s3m files generated over the years.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you, if your ears bleed, I am not responsible!
I have included my personal rating system below, also known as my “How bad is this music” rating system.
My “How bad is this music” rating system legend:
***** = Reasonable music, might actually constitute listening to more than once
**** = Getting somewhat stinky, but still passable
*** = Borderline crap
** = Dear god, is my soundcard seated properly?!
* = Ears are bleeding, call 911

NOTE: Thanks to T-Rex for pushing me to put this back up. I had to dig up some old backups to locate these files to get it all back online!
