Hey,

For anyone who has the time, care and interest to respond to my message and help me, it would be greatly appreciated. For a while now, I have been collecting video game music from nintendo, super nes, genesis, etc.. I'm especially fond of the old synth music.

Anyways, to make a long story short, I was trying to click on a download for Super ghouls and ghosts for SNES and Blaster Master for Nintendo, for example and it brought me to a page of code. Now, I don't know if it's because I have this crappy old Apple g4 computer and this site is mot compatible with Apple computers or what. Also, is there a way to get all of this game music from different albums/systems into a MP3 format?

Call me crazy but, I was kind of hoping to get these on a MP3 CD so I could listen to it away from my computer in my car, etc.. Again, maybe it's because I have a Mac, I don't know. I'm not very technical with all of these converting programs and such but my guess is that maybe they have some programs somewhere that are compatible with apple computers and maybe a way to get this music into MP3 format. Could someone PLEASE help me!! I've longed to listen to this music forever!! Thanks again.

The files' links seem to work fine for me. Of course, I'm using Windows XP and Internet Exploder, er...Explorer. I dunno what's going on with the site on your end, but I can inform the head honcho of the site if you want me to. Hope you can get it to work!

Are you able to right click on the link and click "save target as..." or "Save link as..." or something of that sort? I usually have to do that with one out of nine 7zip archives I find.

If you want more chiptunes, you can get them at Arc-Nova.org (http://www.arc-nova.org/). You can find 2SF (NDS), GBS (GameBoy), GSF (GBA), HES (PC Engine), IBM MIDI, NSF (NES), PSF (PS1), SID (C64), SPC (SNES), VGM (SMS/GG), VGZ (Genesis/Megadrive). Damn near all that you could ever want in chip tunes. The sets are more than likely complete or close to it.

You won't find any recorded to MP3, however.

Winamp (among other things) can easily, automatically convert them, though it can take a while.

[B]Been busy for the last day er so. Didn't want to blow you guys off after you've tried to help me and leave me all these messages like some flake. But thanks for the ideas as I'm going to try them myself. It's unfortunate that a lot of these songs/albums aren't already converted into a MP3 format but I can't complain when it's free. Oh well. Just let me know if anyone knows about a good converting program for Mac along those lines of (NSF-MP3, etc..). Ayup. Oh....and also for Rattlehead and ToastyCheesy, when I click on my mouse, I don't have any option for right clicking to save/download the file. Ya see, the Apple G4 computer that I have (hate with a passion and want to burn) has this weird 1 click see thru transparent/futuristic-ala-apple look to it. Unfortunately, there is no 2nd button. So maybe that's why. Nggehhhh. I don't know. Sucks though. Again thanks to everyone for your info. Much appreicated. And as a token of my respect and appreciation, here's a few torrent links (assuming you know how to torrent) for you to go apeshit with. Trust me, you'll like them! Hasta la pasta and awaayyyyyyyyy.........

Add an "H" will ya. (Just in case if I'm not abiding forum link rules...)

Later..........

The resident Digimoderator says: Those look like music links to me, so I'm assuming they're legal and turning them into proper links (any mods who disagree can edit or delete). Taking off the 'h' on illegal links wouldn't help anyway, you'd still be banned. Incidentally, I've seen this before on links when I've been directed to 2channel for whatever reason. The people who do this seem to have not heard of Linkification (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/190), which will ignore the 'ttp://' bit, interpret the rest as a valid URL, prefix 'http://' to it, and make it into a fully working link.

Audio overload (http://www.bannister.org/software/ao.htm) can supposedly export to wav, which can then become mp3, but that seems like a bit of a hassle. Also, it doesn't play SIDs. Hueh. I only used macos for about a week due to peculiar circumstances so I don't know much.

I think the chip music archives are due for a resurrection / spring cleaning. What do you guys think? I wonder if we can find alamone..... ;)

It means that if those URLs had been to illegal materials, we'd have banned you anyway. Deleting the 'h' would only serve to piss us off even more, so don't do it.
