Greetings TGL'ers. Your forum is tricky to join. I was at a friend's who had the cartridge out for his kids and so I started reflecting on how awesome of a game this was, and as I had heard news of things like the Bionic Commando remake and Metroid 2 remake, I was kind of hoping I might find a sequel or remake for this game when I found this forum. So I'm on page 3 of this thread when I remember, hey you know what might be awesome? I'm no coder, but I do play guitar, and love video games and their music, and I have tabbed out this soundtrack from start to finish on one file which, with a little bit of labor, can be split up into all the individual tracks. But first, I have to google what the planet and fish are called, 'cause for the life of me, I have no idea. =P (Awesome captcha idea, btw.)
But anyways, I have a 64kb MIDI file of the entire soundtrack with near exact replication (if not exact), which I figured you all may be interested in. I also have Synthfont and a variety of soundfonts to go with it that I can provide different instrumentation to the MIDI tracks so as to modernize/update/modify their sound, if that's something you might like for this effort.
As a third (and more difficult option), my guitar chops are pretty decent, and as there's no drums to this soundtrack, and only 3 tracks, it's fairly possible I could record each track on Audacity and make guitar/rock versions of these songs.
If the attachment process in these forums will work for these file types, I have attached the MIDI file (audio playable through your generic media player) and the .ptb file (power-tab file, guitar application to learn to play it). (File size too large - 136kb, lol, just shy of the 128 limit.)
This is the native application for it, which you'll notice the download.com mirror link to assure it's spyware-free:http://www.power-tab.net/guitar.php
And here are my other contributions in the tabbing realm, including a variety of other video games (to show my credentials):http://www.powertabs.net/profile.php?id=1712
That's been more than half a year, I stopped programming TGL remake.
And if we speak the truth, then this project is dead. Lastly I want to give a level editor.
Happy Birthday Guardic Gaiden !
Awww balls. Good thing I saw this spoiler. Now I don't have to read all the other pages.
Oh well, then enjoy the soundtrack. Maybe someone will find it of some use anyways. Cheers.
PS - The for the Soundtrack arrangement, I generally tried to organize the tracks in the order they first appear in the game, and I only repeated the theme once, as it's already 10 minutes long.
