FM Audio for Alex Kidd in Miracle World?
Post Posted: Sun Jan 16, 2022 3:39 pm
Hello,

Is there a patch that adds the FM audio found in the Sega Ages re-release version/mode of the game to the "normal" ROM?
If there is not, is there an interest for the creation of one (or a reason that there isn't)?

Apparently M2 added all three variants of the game in the re-release (Japan/International/BIOS) and even added cool cut-scenes!

(yes I know this is old news but it somehow flew under my radar for all of this time):

Here's a video I found with the music:

Personally I prefer the original but some of these new music sounds good, other not but all new things are welcome :)

Does it still use PSG for sound effects like the Sonic patch?

If so it won't work on real hardware as it can't use PSG and FM at the same time.

It'll work on jap SMS or any SMS with the viletim board. Only MARK III + FM unit won't work properly

According to the following video, kusfo is correct:


Wouldn't it be nice if the same option was implemented as well? Press the pause on the start screen to switch between FM and PSG music.
