Just listening to the original XM file. Must say, Owen's instruments are much more appealing to me :-D

Good stuff Conrad. How come this apparent surge of more-than-decent tunes?

Great work Conrad. Another nice tune that would be a nice cover: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k0kKXkpzVmY&videos=OqCacY9Xyns&p..

congratulations on the snare, 10/10. i miss the kick, though. and some substance, but that is original author's fault i guess.

never underestimate teh powa of the Google. just for the heck of it i tried to search ht-rzr23.zip and behold i found it on some website! so after depacking, examining the .exe and extracting the .xm here it is: http://damaged.ihku.org/~draft/mainiopoks%20+%20tiu%20sek.xm

the (xm) tune from Razor Cracktro #23 is called mainiopoks + tiu sek

great one owen, like the cover a lot! :)
to shed some light on the origin of this tune: it was originally done by croaker of halcyon on pc. the tune was done for a paradigm intro in 1996 and got also used for the below mentioned razor-intro later. croaker used to do s3ms, xms and its, and at least the razor intro made use of digisnap's xm replay routine.

Motion: I downloaded that intro (ht-rzr18.zip), but it didn't run on my XP. :| It just said "** RAZOR LOADER ERROR**
FATAL: UNABLE TO SET DiSPLAY MODE.".

After that i depacked it and started to examine the .exe. I found one Fast Tracker 2 (xm) song and extracted it. After that I started XMPlay and started to listen the song. What was really weird is that the tune in Youtube video isn't the same as in: http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=52833

I found some text strings and both are cracktros for Soldier of Fortune

What you notice is that this cracktro called in Pouet "Razor Cracktro #18 by Razor 1911" (ht-rzr18.zip) for Soldier of Fortune has WOTW's tune...
And the Youtube video titled "Razor 1911 Cracktro #23" which is crack for Soldier of Fortune has Croaker's tune.

In Youtube sacreleases even links into it http://www.defacto2.net/cracktros.cfm ( http://www.defacto2.net/cracktros.cfm?id=423 ), but it just gives the ht-rzr18.zip. Which has WOTW's tune... Doh! :)

Erm... And coder talking about intro being small. It was 9,71 MB when extracted. :D

And that all my work doesn't go to waste here's the WOTW's tune: http://damaged.ihku.org/~draft/ht-rzr18.xm :)

@Conrad: I'd need to depack it and look in the memory for that. I even looked on some mod archives, but nothing there (except his other tracks). :(

@Motion: Yes that's the cracktro I'm on about. Though if you read what I said in the scroller, I had trouble hearing the music playing on my own PC... would you know exactly what format the tune is? I doubt it's a .mod/xm

@rambones: as I said to andy, due to that problem I just thought something up at the end. :)

Massive respect for the soundwork. The tune itself has a nice mood to it, i must agree with linus on the substance though.

Although there is not that much substance it's still a pretty nice track. I dig the percussion sounds quite a lot. Bassline ain't too bad either. Kudos.
