Two versions of Oww from ROTT

Recommended Posts

Has anyone noticed that there are two wersions of Oww from ROTT circulating around? One sounds normal and the other one has an off-key part. For example, Hell Revealed Map09 has the buggy one and I am Evil 7 has the nice one. How did this all start? When I'm playing a new level and I hear the first notes, I always wonder which version I'm going to get. :D

my assumption would be that Hell Revealed did shitty MUS conversions of the original ROTT MIDIs, which caused issues with some of the tracks, most noticably the pitch-bending being off-key. the same issue can be heard with a Duke Nukem 3D track in map 1 of Kama Sutra. it uses the track "Missing? Impossible!", and it is very fucked up, with the pitch-bending of the flute being completely absent, and the MIDI doesn't loop properly. so the issue here to blame would be that MUS is a terrible format, and people just use the Oww track from HR for convenience sake, and no one has questioned it.
