PC Games & Demos with PC Speaker soundtrack

category: general [glöplog]
Also, i heard that Duke Nukem 1 had some music over PC Speaker.

I've only heard sound effects in DN1, but those were soooooooo awesome!
Best PC speaker music you can hear is in Pinball Fantasies, of course.
Thexder has some bleeper sound. And if you want to hear really awesome pc speaker sound effects, download shareware version of Blake Stone - Aliens of Gold (my first fps, btw) and enable pc speaker in options. Check out the sounds of dying monsters, I remember them really creepy when I was 6 years old.
Also good old Wolf3d has them, am I right?

Blockout from California Dreams had a main screen short speaker tune. Also, Prehistorik from Titus had a full speaker-powered soundtrack which I can remember quite good :)

crimewave did digitized audio thru pc speaker!
so, inertia player can play mods and s3m thru pc speaker!
Digger (get a remake at http://www.digger.org/) had the best PC speaker sound I´ve heard so far.

Btw, I´ve made a PC-speaker-to-soundcard cable (described at http://www.deinmeister.de/e_sbpcqlnk.htm) - much better than the case honker.

Also, that cable lets you record the beeper sound. Handy if someone felt like setting up a PC-speaker music site with MP3s :-)

Anyways again: I dont look for sampled PC Speaker music. Beep sounds only. Because the musics must be convertable to other platforms that dont have the CPU power to play MOD files on one 1bit channel ;-)

I remember playing a sci-fi detective game with digitized samples played through the PC speaker in early Nineties, but I have no idea what it was called..

Neuromancer? Even if not I remember it does have nice pc speaker soundtrack.
added on the 2008-04-06 19:05:10 by wrthlss wrthlss
Yes, Neuromancer uses the bleeps and the game is from 1989.
Selling your lungs - it's an nice way to get some cash.

Sid Meier's Civilization has nice "atmospheric" pc speaker music also.

No, it's not Neuromancer.. it was something like a bit Blade Runner-style of a thing, you sometimes flew around in a vector city in your hovercar and had a sketchbook where all the clues appeared. Don't remember much :(

Preacher : was it BAT ?

I can't believe no one has mentioned this yet:

Trixter/Hornet is almost obsessional about Old School everything. Check that page out.

The game Preacher is searching for is "Mean Streets" (http://www.mobygames.com/game/dos/mean-streets)... but that one used samples and no 1bit channel sounds.

Mmm, i found Street Rod 2 has beeper sounds too!

"Ports of Call" had an interesting PC speaker sound, but only in the loading screen

TS: Its okay. I mainly try to collect some musics up for a project of mine. I will check it out.
