Here is my 19th music album release, The Bit Merge, A blend of Sega Genesis/Mega Drive, Playstation 1, NES, Commodore 64 and other music productions ranging from eurodance to hardcore music, with a few more rocky tracks here and there. Most tracks are remixes or covers of my previous tracks.
In 2004 I released Zelda: Dark Link Quest, using picture variables beyond the officially supported limit of Pic0 through Pic9. Unfortunately, Texas Instruments eventually changed how group files are sent to calculators around that time, preventing the game from being sent to the TI-83+ and TI-83+SE without TI-Graph Link software, meaning you needed a 32-Bit computer to send it. In 2007, I thought I released a fixed version for TI-Connect and other modern softwares, but alas it wasn't the case, as many important files were missing from the 2007 upload. Thanks to LogicalJoe from Cemetech, the game has now been saved from being lost to time and can now be sent to TI-83 Plus/TI-84 Plus series calculators using TI-Connect CE or other modern linking softwares!
Ancient Zelda game made with TI-BASIC using various ASM libraries, now updated for modern linking softwares and TI-84 Plus compatibility. Since the game has dated code and predates xLIB APP, Celtic III and Doors CS 7, it has hundreds of sub-programs and a 15 MHz calculator is recommended for speed reasons.
With the exception of games made with the Action-RPG Construction Set, Zelda DLQ is the only Zelda game project ever completed for TI-83+SE and TI-84+/SE calculators. It is semi-open-world, there are three dungeons, various items from the original games and various monsters.
This time around there is a lot of influence from the 80's, especially synth-pop, italo-disco and also the 90's and more, including more electronic power metal, UK hardcore and eurodance.
Like the two previous releases, the entire album was made on a Sony Playstation 1 emulator using Music 2000/MTV Music Generator, hence the 32-bit moniker, but this time around I used a modified version of Music 2000 that includes all sounds from MTVMG2, Music 3000 and Music 2002 Club Edition.
Heya, so far I have only been unable to find a walkthrough for any level past level 9 on Youtube. It seems that this game was either almost completely forgotten and most info about it lost to time except for download links. All Google results just lead to completely irrelevant Android phone-related links, same for Duckduckgo. It probably lived in the shadow of Lode Runner, Great Giana Sisters and Mario series when it first came out in the 80's.

Wadtool: -This tool is for reverse-engineering Music 2000, specifically the data (such as the sounds), so that eventually it can be replaced easily. It's still under development but it's progressing nicely. @Yuki is working on it. https://github.com/juju2143/wadtool There's also a Music 2000 Discord server with a room about modding the software: https://discord.gg/VxyufYhGWx

Spotify, Amazon, Apple and Deezer versions will be available in two or three weeks at my new URL (see sig's last URL or previous post)
My landing page URL has changed (see last sig button), as the original URL was obtained through Freenom and I no longer have access to it (for now at least). I also made new merch that is already available at my page but due to the nature of print on demand merchandise and the fact some of my stuff is all-over-print the prices are very similar to what you see at concerts and shops that sells merch from established musicians and bands.
I ordered two samples so far to see what they look like in real life. Hopefully I can afford to do so with the others soon. I'm also working on 32-Bit Rekt Part 2 album which is over halfway done.
Heya, I am pleased to release my 16th studio album tonight: 32-Bit Rekt Part 1! Made entirely on Sony Playstation using Music 2000 (MTV Music Generator) it makes use of tricks not used before in any of my previous album released with the same software.
You will find eurodance, happy hardcore, UK hardcore, frenchcore, electronic power metal and more during your journey through this listen. For now only the Bandcamp and Kunaki versions of 32-Bit Rekt Part 1 are available, at https://www.djomnima.ga (first two links), but Spotify, Apple Music and other services will be available in the next few weeks as well. Merch is also available at https://djomnimaga.creator-spring.com
The recent upsurge in activity and discoveries on the new Playstation Music 2000 software (A.K.A MTV Music Generator in North America) Discord server and some annoying quirks n Caustic 3 software involving transitions have revived my interest in the Music 2000 software, which came out in November 1999 on the original 1995 Playstation console. In addition to that I felt like while my newer songs were more complex, harder and sometimes still tried to recapture the feel of my older songs, the newer albums kinda lost their charm of being almost entirely made on PSOne gaming console (and in some cases PS2/Xbox, but for the new album only PS1)
As a result, I am making a brand new album entirely made with that software with no external assets nor post-processing. I am using an emulator, though, because saving songs using all the new tricks I just discovered will just result into corrupted data, and it takes too long to save on memory cards anyway, so I am using savestates. Every single song included so far either uses heavy sample editing, pitch modulation channels, abuse exploits or use other kind of trickery with samples but it's entirely possible that songs not doing so get included, especially if I am going for my very old styles from over a decade ago at some point.
So far the album includes happy hardcore, UK hardcore, frenchcore, gabber, eurodance, relaxing/ambient music and electronic power metal but might include more as I make new songs. I'm not planning to include eurobeat, though, as there are already 10,000 other eurobeat songs with identical melodies out there.
You can listen to it on Bandcamp. I might make a Youtube playlist later but many Youtube songs are older versions of the ones on Bandcamp.
In 1999, Jester Interactive released Music 2000, published by Codemasters on the original Playstation from 1995, as MTV Music Generator in North America. Although the software is extremely powerful for its time and even has sound quality that is superior to the PC version that came out the next year, documentation about the PS1 software's most advanced features was never published anywhere or was lost to time or deep far into the depths of the Wayback Machine.
The fact it's becoming easier and easier to emulate the console Music 2000 runs on on more and more platforms, as well as the software's new statuses as a retro gaming software and music software have revived its popularity in recent years, while a Discord server about it opened and revived the Music 2000 online community in the process, something that was mostly lost after TIMGUL closed down in early 2012.
This renewed popularity led to an efford by INFU to create a website where as much documentation about the PSOne version of Music 2000 as possible is included along with open-source songs released by various artists including myself. And by documentation, I am talking about the AM channel. Yes, the thing that was so cryptic to use that almost no one dared to touch it. And we're trying to find more advanced tricks, and don't worry we also talk about other things than the AM channel, I was just trying to get your attention.
The Discord server also contains plenty of useful tricks, a resources section and a lot of cool new tracks being posted regularly. There are already 200 members as well.
Anyway here are the links (unfortunately, @Yuki lost mtv-music-generator . com to a domain name squatter, so we couldn't re-use that URL.)
