Tracker Hero - what the hell...?

Guys,

Anybody heard about this?

[ Show youtube player ]

Just found this accidentally, but eagerly awaited it to arrive since ever saw GH2.

What a find, now I can show the daughter the Amiga did it first She's always going on about how the Amiga was useless but now I can prove that what she uses today had already been done in the glorious days of the Amiga

Hopefully that will shut her up

Hopefully this was released and can be found, what a great find Reynolds

Funny Would be crazy to try this with some chiptunes Seems like there is no webpage for it yet (just found one thread over at Amiga.org). I hope this will be released, so DH can show his daughter some 'hip' Amiga stuff

Hi,

we are working on the tracker hero website, it will be available anytime soon. We are also looking for musicians who want their mods to be included into the game. You can write to trackerhero (@) gmail.com if you're interested. Cheers

Hola Zener!

- A1200 AGA game (ECS not yet but maybe)
- FREE
- Bundled with some tracks, but you can add your own mods to shred along ;D
- Available "when it's done"
- PC verison? NEVAH

Only having four channels (of which two will probably be in loop for drums & percussion etc.) I doubt this game will be able to take "any" tracker file. Otherwise it would be a pretty boring game.

Not to mention that the "lead" instrument regularly changes channel.

It won't be boring but it might not make a lot of sense.

You can see in the test file that sometimes a note is in another channel... sometimes when composing you have to do this.

But knowing how the software works, you can optimize this and create very fun mods... Real chiptunes would specially be amazing on extra hard levels... Also, the game can multiply the difficulty based on the original mod. This would be easy to do.

I can also think that editing by hand each song's "tabs" you can enhance each tune. This should be done for the tunes bundled with the game, but if you want to just add any mod you want, posibilities will be less, don't expect much of a challenge, more of a gimmick for a mod player.

Just a clarification. The Amiga channel where the sample is being played is not related with the "channel" where the note is being displayed.
