TPC cracktro's tune

Having checked my old ADFs I found a cracktro with an interesting tune that (so far) I coulnd't find on sites such as Janeway, Pouet, etc..


It is from a group called The Power Connection and it should be related to a prod called CAS-PRG (?). The mentioned coder is Red-Max while the sound should be from Bang.


Does anyone know the name of this module?



The file is attached. crTPC.zip

Ciao !

The tune is a standard Protracker one

The name of the module is "intro tpc.bang"

In the samples there is written that "This song was made by bang of tpc"

I have done it in the 1990s, converted to ADF a few years later and currently cleaning them up.



Unfortunately one of the ADFs is badly broken, so I am checking whether I could recover the files. DiskSalv3 or DiskSalv4 didn't help so far. Moreover, some cracktros are from the Italian groups/spreaders/sysops, so many are not in pouet or Janeway as a comparisson (Xad, Insider, MakSoft).



I wish to recover them and make also the WHDLoad with the generic slave. Some of them already work, while some works better on the genericKick 1.2 and I am embarking into the Asm-One to build the slave for them following the StingRay advice in another thread. I am also creating the AGS entries to launch them within the HstWB.



The idea is to "zone" them once it is done. please find attached a screenshot of one of them.

@Roc: great finding mate, I did not know that Bang was in TPC.

if you can share a RAR with all the releases that are not in Pouet/Janeway that would be candy!

PS: Do you also have disks with Amiga music (modules)?

Yeah there is another TPC cracktro in there, however with a different tune. That one with Bang's music is not listed in Pouet/Janeway. I can also upload in there, for preservation.

Unfortunately no modules, because in 1990/1991 I was rather focusing on cracktros. Back in the days, I was calling them intros.

I plan polishing them up and uploading during my upcoming annual leave.

Ok.

Question for the experts:

I am struggling with the broken single cracktros. I remember someone mentioning a tool to repair single files rather than disks. Any idea which tool I could use for those? I already tried DiskSalv and now I am checking with ADFWorkshop

ADF-Workshop is great. I managed to recover four cracktros, one of them I was trying to recover for a long time. One is from Insider, a sysop/spreader who was operating here in Italy.

If possibile I prefer to recover them myself, because it is a chance of learning how to do that (and have some fun), however in case I would be stuck I will be gladly ask for your help which is greatly appreciated.

This is the Insider's cracktro just recovered. Another one not in Pouet/Janeway.

@Roc: Thanks for letting me know mate. Please do not hesitate to share the other version of the TPC intro (with different music).

Could you make your archive of non Kestra/Pouet demos/intros available? Would be candy

Cheerio

It took longer than foreseen, because I had to re-ADFer them, however the scan is completed.


You can find the details and the files here: http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?p=1252007


Have fun
