Hello their Joshi I never said the composition changed its always going to be the same composition. I was trying to say in as little words as I could the quality and the arrangement of the amiga and mac version was down to the hardware and how the hardware made the music sound which is the reason why pc version differs a great deal from the Amiga and the Mac version. That is a fact it definately isnt bogus and most gamers did have an Amiga instead of a pc back then thats not bogus thats common knowledge im not mentioning anything new or bogus thats for sure.

I can accept your opinion, I have nothing against you liking the Amiga version better please note, it wasn't me or Thrik who challenged this, next time someone asks why you like something, you really shouldn't have to prove yourself, tis your life.
Joshi I never said you have anything against me or anyone else having an opinion. But when I was the first person in this post who said its all down to personal preference and opinion which you like best we all have our favourites and yet Thrik said.

At the end of the day, it's simply down to preference I keep thinking that you'll agree on this
It deserved a 459 word rant about personal preference and opinion hope you understand now thanks man.

It is Thrik, not Thirk.

For someone who's not good with words, you write an awful lot of them.

Alien You dont understand so I will explain.

The composition of the music never changed it was always the same music for all versions but the quality and the arrangement of the Amiga and the Mac was down to the hardware and how the hardware made the music sound. Which is the reason why pc version differs a great deal from the Amiga and the Mac version. The hardware for the pc version was more advanced and arranged the sound of the music differently.

The hardware handles the music for your games imagine it as an orchestra in your computer the better the computer hardware the better the orchestra.

The problem with that line of thinking is that the quality of the sound is completely relative to the hardware. While most people did and still do have cheap sound cards which produce awful-sounding music, it's perfectly possible to plug in something more advanced and get sound which far surpasses the Amiga.

Parts of the MI3 soundtrack and most of the MI4 soundtrack are based on MIDI, albeit with really high quality synths handling the sound. It's not quite as cookie-cutter clean as that, but it puts into perspective how good MIDI can sound on a PC. I'd rather have slightly differently arranged music with far higher synth quality than relatively crappy Amiga quality myself, but again, that's down to preference.

But if we're talking authenticy rather than "sounds good", then why not just get a Roland MT-32 and plug that into your PC? Then you'd have music which sounds pretty much exactly as the composers planned as the music was in fact designed using one. Turn off the graphic filtering so that you have the original pixellated artwork and you'll pretty much have a perfectly authentic experience (unless you're going to go insane and tell me that being reduced to 32 colours somehow makes it more authentic).

Anyone who hasn't heard the HighLand Productions MP3s should do so now. I wish the music would sound like the Underground Tunnels Orchestral Remix in the game.

I've actually been after a higher-than-128kbps version of that for ages. If anybody knows where I can get one (or has one), do let me know.

Yea the underground tunnels remix is great I like video games music more than normal music and have a large collection. I also do my own versions of video games music for fun by playing Sonic The Hedghog, Night Trap, Monkey Island 2, Final Fantasy on electric piano for fun i try to make them sound exactly the same as they are in the games im thinking of putting them on http://www.ocremix.org/

Guys you got to go here and game endings or old games adverts http://www.gamerevolution.com/goodie/endings Check out the Nintendo glove advert and look out the the checky grin the guy gives at the end.
