TurboSkeeter (NEC PC Engine/TurboGrafx-16 Original Song)
« on: July 17, 2018, 05:09:24 pm »
I decided to give myself the challenge of making a PCE/TG-16 song using only 4 channels. This leaves out two channels, which is just enough for SFX. Enjoy!
Be sure that your headphones are on and the volume is set so you don't hurt your ears. Enjoy the music!

Very nice! Although I think it would have to be a Supergrafx game to play samples without any noticeable lag, considering you went for empty channels for SFX.
Dammit, the weakest point about the PC Engine is the fact it can't play samples without trickery.
Also, the "Organlike" instrument reminds me of MSX Gradius 2 and Parodius  :D

Apologies for the super late replay, but thanks for your comment, though this song is no longer up to par with my current standards.

Now, I find your comments of "it would have to be a Supergrafx game to play samples without any noticeable lag" and "the weakest point about the PC Engine is the fact it can't play samples without trickery" to be odd. You see, the original PC Engine can play samples without trickery. In fact, look at Moto Roader. It came out approximately 10 months before the SuperGrafx, and it plays samples without any noticeable lag. This is because the CPU speed of the PC Engine is 7.16mhz, which is faster than most other 8-bit CPUs that were on the market in 1987. Plus, the SuperGrafx doesn't give you any sort of advantages. It literally has the same hardware and CPU speed as the previous PC Engine models. The only difference is that they doubled up on the graphics chips and increased the amount of work RAM to 32kb from 8kb, hence why it is called the "SuperGrafx."
