  1. I also used to play both co-op and DM over BBSes. My friend and I played all the way through Doom and Doom 2 multiple times on co-op, we both had 2 phone lines in our houses, so we'd be playing Doom while talking on the phone at the same time. Imagine that! There was no Teamspeak or whatever the whipper-snappers use these days :)
  2. I hope I'm not taking what you said out of context, but I can assure you there was never any talk about making Icarus a commercial release. In fact a lot of the motivation behind Icarus was to "make up" for the fact that Evilution was announced as a free add-on, then withdrawn when negotiations with id started.
  3. I had been using Cakewalk since version 3.01, then moved on to Cakewalk Pro Audio and then Sonar some time in the early 2000s. Cakewalk was amazing in the early 90s because it ran rock-solid, I don't recall it ever crashing on me in Win95 or Win98. I remember Roland had acquired Cakewalk in the late 2000s which I thought was a good fit, I hadn't heard that Gibson had taken over. Gibson pretty much ruins everything they touch, in my opinion.
  4. Nice newtonian back there! Is that a Celestron?
  5. Ever wanted to hear Requiem's soundtrack played on an actual Roland SC-55? Well, now you can!

      100% inspired by your "Let's Listen" videos, which I've been using as a reference for a few years now.

      Sounds much better in your uploads - all I did was use ZDoom and Fraps to record audio since nobody else uploaded these soundtracks at the time.

  6. Hey folks, I wanted to chime in here and say how awesome it is to see people playing this mod after so many years. I remember playing through "I, Anubis" somewhere around the time Icarus was released and thinking to myself "I need to be involved in this!". It's the only project where I contacted the authors and asked if I could write music for them. I have a playlist of the soundtrack on YouTube, including some material that didn't get used and a longer version of Map02's music: Also, original MIDI files available here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B79YBwbj0yrTRUx2X3FZamhmZ1E Thanks for listening!
  7. Things I didn't know I mispronounced until I got married: Museum - I pronounce it "mu-ZAM" as opposed to "mu-ZEE-am". Camry (the Toyota car) - I say "CAM-ray" and I'm apparently wrong even after having owned two of them. "CAM-ree"!
  8. Pong as well, there really wasn't much variety back then.
  9. Gotta say, Levi Nickerson did an awesome job on this Icarus MAP11 cover!


  10. Just finished updating the "Let's Listen - TNT: Revilution" series on Youtube to reflect changes made to the soundtrack since the beta.

      Would you put this put to bandcamp of something like that? Really want to have MP3 to listen to.

      How about this: I'll make the MP3s available to download for a while until I run out of space on Google Drive. Also included are the MP3s I recorded of tracks that are no longer used in the final release (denoted by OLD in the file name). 

      Individual tracks available here:

  11. Most nostalgic for me is Aliens TC. I was amazed at how tense and atmospheric it was compared to Doom.
  12. Finished version of MAP11's music, Rushing Headlong: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B79YBwbj0yrTNTlIeG55WWhqNkk
  13. Okay, I replaced the first attempt with an updated version. I went with thunder instead of Seashore, I felt like the SC-55 seashore wasn't sufficiently low-pitched compared to the Windows MIDI version and the thunder is a lot more satisfying. Hopefully you agree. And thank you Gez, for the extremely nice compliment!
  14. I'm looking into that right now, it seemed strange that there was 10 seconds of silence in front of the track. What patch is supposed to be on MIDI channels 16, 12, 2 and 13? I see you're sending a bank select message of 15490, which the Roland doesn't recognize and is apparently not playing correctly. Any help would be appreciated so I can get it fixed and sounding better :)
  15. Sorry to be slightly off topic: If you can't get enough of the TNT:R soundtrack, I've got some good news! I've just uploaded a "Let's Listen" playlist recorded from my vintage (oh man, am I really that old?) 1995 Roland XP-10. It's a keyboard that has the same basic ROM as the SC-55. I had to do a few takes on certain songs, as the XP-10 has a 28 voice polyphony limit and some of the music FAR exceeds that. Enjoy :) https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLVDYINVKng7Vb49GOlI_ozddKdZR3a9lc
