@Yogibear & others.
Ok. This is actually not the place for such a comment, but then everyone can se it. :)
I havn't been able to find any problems with the "Latest releases". I tried to change the release date, and it showed up well on the list.
The Latest releases on the front page only shows releases for the last two days, or the latest 5 if the latest two days dosn't return at least 5.
It's also effected by the CSDb view mode, where you can filter out sertain types of releases, so please check that out.
So unless someone can show me an example where there truly is an error, I won't do more about it right now. ;)

Looking at Hermit's reply I'm confirmed in my hypothesis that some releases are not displayed in the Latest Releases section but probably only in the Latest Additions section. I know it's a long time ago but I think the same happened to my All (B)ears colly. Can someone please reply to this?

I just found this, don't know how I could miss it for a month....

This idea and the realization speaks for itself, apart from the only flaw, which is the fast-reading race in the RJ interview standalone part on the disk...
The design is unique, and there are a lot of good tunes. My favourite is Barbarian tune from RJ. (He died just around the time when I picked up C64 again after 7-8 years, and its a pity I didn't know he just passed away while I was listening Barbarian somewhen in 2007-2008...before I registered to CSDB and discovered that scene is alive.)

I'd like to emphasize Conrad's adaptations, I enjoyed them the most. I feel a lot of efforts in them...really great sound quality and musical value.
Of course I like the other great remakes too just like Geir's and Joe's, etc. , BTW.

The other mentionable thing is the great idea of articles about the opinions of famous sceners like Rob Hubbard and Jeroen Tel.

10/10 minimum for this release,... Rest in Piece, Richard.

Credits now fixed. Hope you don't mind "algorithm" on the actual screen though :)

The credit that lists 'algorithm' should be 'crack' as that was my handle at the time the 'robocrack' tune was created (1995)

It's out! And it's great. The graphics could have been better, but the idea, execution and music is fab. Geir's music is fab-fucking-fantastic!

Good stuff here indeed. A worthy tribute.

Always loved RJ's music and there are some great covers in here.

He did some music for a game I worked on (different platform though) in the mid 90s. Had I realised at the time I would've driven him crazy about his SID tunes but I don't think he ever actually came to the office, or if he did I didn't recognise him :(

Geir: yes, thanks for reminding me. You explained this background at X that I completely missed!

RIP Richard. Always loved his tunes and hypnotic sounds.
My contribution has a meaning from start to end. Don't think you know this, but it is deep... Barbarian was one of those tunes that got stuck in my mind during the gaming years on the C64. This tune starts off so bombastic. I took a listen to the Conan soundtrack aswell when doing the intro for it. Then it goes into Wicked, and Richard's life gets more and more disturbed, but hope is there (Antiriad), sadly it can't be helped, gets sad (Cannon Fodder), Richard is about to die... (you'll hear his last hearbeats during the end of the tune)... The end... RIP.

:( I must've missed the fact Joseph is gone. Thank you very much for this tribute. Lotsa of great covers of a fine artist, and apparently a great person as well.

* Added fixed disk version. Adam Morton's tune file was using zeropage addresses that conflicted with code in the outfit, causing some crashes. Therefore zp addresses are relocated. (I should have mentioned this to all musicians back then to be honest)

Thanks to Yogibear for pointing that out to me.

Good production.
Some of the 'Richard' images work better than others.
I really like the image swap effect.
Think I was pushing my luck selecting a new tune, then selecting text while the tune loads ;D

Just checked out some of Richards music on HVSC
Barbarian, Cauldron II, Defender of the Crown, Rimrunner.. I remember him now! :D
One tune that i hadn't played before is from 3D International Tennis. It sounds really good, in a television theme kinda way.

I'm really happy to see this fine tribute being released to a fine musician. Take my full respect, all of the makers/contributors.

I think Richard himself would like it pretty much because it shows the good effect of his music on all of us as pretty different people joined forces to tell in pixels, code or soundwaves how much his music means to us.


// Geir, Hein - you really made my day! What bloody awesome, inspiring remixes!!! //

radiantx: Yes I was getting agitated about that as well. I do remember timing your tune good before, but I guess I was in a rush for obvious reasons. ;)
User Comment

Finally! Great work!

...slightly disturbed by the bug in the left corner of the screen though, and my tune is quite bugged as well (might be unavoidable; it's really timing sensitive due to some bad decisions/misconceptions re: hard restart on my behalf).
