Music stolen ?

Hi guys

Just want to share with you what i spotted

It seems that the music of this game

https://www.exotica.org.uk/wiki/Arnie

is stolen

The original one is this module

http://janeway.exotica.org.uk/release.php?id=56235

The music is nearly the same indeed, except for some speech which is not present in the game music

I can say that the music is stolen for two reasons:

1) the game is from 1992, the ST15 module is from 1988
2) the game music is Protracker format, the original one is Soundtracker

What do you think, am i missing something ?

All the best, chip

Dozens of games use music ‘borrowed’ from not only Amiga artists, but real film/tv music without licence, it was pretty common during the 8-16bit ‘bedroom’ coding years when most people turned a blind eye to such stuff.

As mentioned, it wasn't all that regulated back then. Usually it was fought over in diskmags, cracktro's and demo's, slandering others for 'borrowing' music and gfx.

It's interesting to sometimes just browse through the collection of demo's just to read the scrollers and dig up dirt from way back when

I think this one is probably "legit", Richard Aplin had links with the Share & Enjoy guys + Rogue Male/SAE did music for several games too, so it's possible they used The Judge's tune with permission here...

If you check on HOL (https://hol.abime.net/3316) and compare that to the entry on janeway you might get the answer

Edit: Just saw the note on the entry which explains the credit for TSM. Might be worth to check with somebody involved in making the game to confirm how the music got into the game.

Wow, never seen this game before.

The musician for this game is credited as Paul Butler but it's blatantly ripped from the Phenomena Enigma Megademo a track called "A Final Hyperbase" by Jimmy Fredriksson (Firefox) and Robert Ling (Tip).

Arrests warrants should go out immediately. Get the DNA before it’s too late.

I know it's a total offtopic, but I'm happy to say it, some time ago I made a cover of this TSM music on Atari ST. If anyone wants to listen to it, here it is:

Is by chance a case of Karma? (pirates steal from publishers,publishers retaliate grabbing mods) - don't take this too seriously though

Is a stolen pirate song still stolen? Things to ponder late at night.
