Not the game designer, the C64 sound chip/music format. Awesome stuff... I'd forgotten how cool C64 music could be made to be.

If you, like me, like to grab new genres by the ass and drag them kicking and screaming into your conciousness, download the HVSC (http://www.hvsc.c64.org/), which contains quite possibly every known sid ever made, some 20.000 of the buggers. Fun!

Also, you'll need a player. I suggest sidplay2/w (http://www.student.nada.kth.se/%7Ed93-alo/c64/spw/) for windows.

Can you get the Daley Thompsons Decathlon opening music? It was basically a really shit midi version of Chariots of fire. I actually had it on a cassette, and listened to it for fun.

oh i meant to say, give Herobotix in the Games folder a listen, it is stunning.

One of my favourite c64 games and one of the first bits of computer music that really made me realise how cool it could be

Okay that last one is incredibly annoying.

I think I'll use Bangkok Knights though, thanks.
