[Found: Adventure Construction Set] Looking for the game this fanfare came from

Hi,


Somebody emailed me recently if I could identify the following fanfare sound and from which game:


https://www.stone-oakvalley-studios.com/sv/fanfare.mp3


Details about the file:
Was recorded onto tape somewhere in 1985-1986. Sounds like a "victory" type of fanfare. The guy mentions it was maybe from an medieval type of game ( not Defender of the Crown).



The sound is very alike SONIX/DMCS synthezized trumpet. A very close match of pretty much the same sound, but different composition was found in


Sonix_Music_Driver\David_Schroeder\War_in_Middle_Earth\


and especially my SOAMC= recording of smus.UltVict_T001_ORG.mp3




Anybody can identify the fanfare uploaded - or which game it came from?

the sample reminds me of North & South but I don't remember that particular fanfare in that game

If you look up the relevant theme category on HOL only Defender of the Crown meets the timeframe criteria, and you've already said it's not that.

Looking at the timeframe the only possibilities that sprang out to me (which are fantasy and not medieval as such) are Faery Tale Adventure and Ultima III. Whether it actually came from either of these - I'm afraid I don't know.

Thanks for all the tips, yes, I even suggested to the guy go to hol.abime.net with year filter of 1985 and 1986, and maybe some screenshots would jiggle his memory.

I also went down the path of fantasy and checked manually a lot of recordings, but nothing there either.

I mean that during 1985-1986, and in Norway, there couldn't be many games to choose from, so it must be either a amateur game from those assassins (if they were around), or possibly some kind of those "100 games on a single disk", who knows :-)

I suppose the PD disks could also be target to finding that game, even possibly Fred Fish stuff.

Found it!

Due to a totally different project I'm working on (to find and locate a bunch of Game Creators available on the Amiga), I found the exact same fanare in

Adventure Construction Set by Electronic Arts, 1986.

Here's the intro that features the same fanfare (and the rest of it actually)

Well, the timeframe of 1985/86 was spot-on....it's just that we probably all assumed it was from a game! I, myself, was convinced it was from an Epyx game as the trumpet sample sounded very Olympian and like something straight out of their Summer/Winter/World Games franchise.

Like you, I went through all the Amiga and C64 Epyx games recorded on YouTube searching for the trumpet sample and came up empty. I even looked through games on HOL that had credited the Sonix author for use of the sound driver. Again, I came up with nada!

Anyway, I'm glad you came across it when researching something else. It should put the guy who emailed you this mystery task out of his misery, and has certainly quenched my thirst to know where it came from too - well done, sir!
