I'll do some recordings today, one comparison track from all the Gradius versions I have. Should be fun to listen. smile

Is there a possibility for having console roms in a different driver file than arcade ones?

I'd rather not infect my arcade love with console syphilis.

How 'bout...

C:\M1>m1a vf

a=arcade and uses roms from your mame/roms folder.

C:\M1>m1g g_son3

g=Genesis/Mega-Drive bin files that are located in your hazemd roms folder.

:-/

m=master system game
s=super nes game
n=nes game
or something like that.

I better quit now before I kill everything. <_< ' >_>

Umm, no. I'm a strong believer in the Aaron Giles Project (it's like Alan Parsons but different). If you object to some game being supported, don't download it.

Both of you actually.

I can scare Sixtoe better by taking some nice pictures of my Fighting Bujitsu and Super System 23 PCB sets once all the dust comes off though - then he'll have to update System 16 ;-)

Okay, this should give you a good comparision as to which Gradius version sounds best. Answer is, obviously Sharp X68000, but it kind of cheats by using OPM (you'd have to be pretty incompetent to let OPM music loose with AY-3-8910).

X68000 and PC-88 sets are already available at Hoot Archive, the Sharp X1 one will get added soonish.

Oddly, the Game Boy is probably my favorite out of all of those. They used some unusual waveforms for more of a Namco WSG feel and there was some nice use of stereo. The X1 is really good and clean, but the tempo's way too fast. The X68000 was a bit disappointing - where were the ADPCM drums? And I was expecting more creative OPM patches from the people who made Xexex smile

The X68000 version is criminal underuse of the hardware. The PC Engine version wins on account of the drums and for not making my ears bleed.

Well, they probably saved them for later games (Gradius 2, Akumajo Dracula).
