@Carrion: there's a note on the disk... TL;DR: It's running the 6502 code from the NES and uses the SID as a NES soundchip substitute.

wow 6 years after the release and I actually appreciate this production.
really nice achievement. thanks for doing this!

question to Mr.Sid. did you actually rip the original NES sound modules (like patterns, samples, sound definitions?) or was it recreated somehow from scratch on C64?

FWIW, I've added a download of Solstice by Tim Follin which was relocated and run through the converter a while ago by Inge/HVSC.

Mace, no offense but you missed the damn whole point then ;-)
You are so right!
I started shouting before even taking time to actually look what I was shouting about.

Probably not, although it might be some fun to port Neil Baldwin's NTRQ and Pulsar trackers... Not right now though...

Surely they will be added in the next release of HVSC, so that's no excuse to not add the credits.
Oh, wait a minute... I missed that these are not hand made conversion but digital transfers of the exact NES songs :)

Will there be an editor too, some day?

Also none of them are in HVSC! ;)

Interesting... 75 songs and no credits for music... ;-)

Absolutely love this!!! I just bought myself a NES and I'm working my way through Mega Man 2. It's like trying to stay alive without kidneys. Just a sidenote, but hey, you have my vote!

I was shown this at X and, as a fan of the NES, it did not fail to impess at all (:

Reminds me a lot of Nessidplay V3.1.

Thanks! Very nice! :)

@Frantic: Yes, 16 volume levels per channel actually, and that's also where you'll hear it not being very accurate. I obviously picked tunes that work well. Check the note file for some details...

@Oswald: That's what the converter is for:
http://galway.c64.org/~sid/castlevania.prg (use joystick to select tunes)

@MrSid: Can't remember the NES sound chip specs right now, but I imagine the hardest part in doing this had something to do with the way ADSR works on C64? I guess the NES has something like 4 or 8 directly settable volumes or something like that?

seriously wtf :D btw no castlevania ?! :C

Beautyful selection menu and extremely polished all over - nice! :)

Thanks for all the comments, guys!
@Nitro: I also thought about doing some Spectrum noise stuff, but I just can't stand listening to it. :)
Great work though... Keep it up!

this is too awesome to be true. great effort, this one truely rocks! didn't have a look at the output of the converted nsf-data yet, but doing ports of nes-games should be way more easy, at least when it comes to the audial part.
nessive kudos =)

Extremely impressive work! Playing on the pirate clone of the NES(Famicom to be more exact) was a large part of my childhood and hearing some very nice NES tunes on the C64 in very good quality impressed me very much!
I hope you'll continue the work on this emulator, and be able to improve the 'drums compatibility' :)
Gotta look for the hidden tunes :)

This is so much more than a simple music-collection. This is a working replayer for actual NSF-files that actually works. This opens up for listening to (and using) brilliant tunes in styles which so far haven't been available. Brilliant work, wonderful emulation.

Excellent design, great audio.
Duck Tales (Moon Stage) reminds me of the main theme from The Last V8

I still think this should've been entered in the democompo... hey, it's in the same vein, but it's got way better gfx and design than mahoney's audio-experiments, and that one got some serious applause! ;-)

Sweet! A way to go with music collections. Great graphics and audial work!
