I am listening and I'm amazed by the quality of the tunes and the gorgeous graphics.

Yeyy, awesome chiptunez, nice design and great gfx from Fra. Everything works just fine. It's always great to see another Amiga production in 2021. Keep on doin'! Amigaaaaa!!!

Pure Amiga technology, more than 100 colors on screen, 16 colors hardware sprites, blitter, track loading (thx Leonard) and of course these 9 magnificent tunes by AceMan, mAZE, J.M.D, MotionRide, MCH, Optic & Tecon, Magnetic-Fox and Peter (‘hope I didn’t forgot anyone).
Thanks 🙏 4pLaY and Oriens for the nice collaboration!

Great musicdisk. Some really nice songs on this one and also nice and soothing to watch the car driving by. By the way - seems like, that only 56 tracks of the adf are used and therefore it's smaller than the typical 880kb, can this be? I copied it to a real disk by using X-Copy and HxC floppy-emulator and then X-Copy reported me foreign-format on tracks 57 up to 79. So i only copied until track 56 to the real disk, tried the disk and it also worked perfectly. I guess, there is no data on those tracks, right?

This looks really good, I'm not a fan of the way the tunes are handled though. There's no way to listen to a particular tune without loading all the previous tunes. For example, if the last tune is my favourite I have to load all the previous tunes as changing tunes is only possible in sequential order.

AW87: An Amiga disk doesn't have to use all tracks, lots of games which used custom track formats for example didn't use all tracks either.

@StingRay - Yes, i know. But it's rare, to see a file in adf format, that does not have the standard 880kb size. Mostly, when tracks are empty or unused, in this format the size of the adf then is still 880kb, except it is packed to adz or dms format. Therefore i wondered. I have never tested, if adf's which don't has the standard-size will work on Minimig or HxC/Gotek, but i will in next days with this file here. If not, i copy it over to a normal 880kb adf. :)

I don't see why such disk images should not work on Minmig or Gotek as the size of the image is not really important as long as the boot-/rootblock is valid and the track format is correct. Even an image which only contains 1 track only is vald (track 0 f.e. which may contain a bootblock intro).
If such images don't work on the Gotek/Minimig, I consider their Amiga disk support both broken. :)

Will try it out. But sometimes the cores require a standard-size for certain file-types and adf's, that are not 880kb, are very rare to find in the Amiga software-archives on the internet, they are kind of abnormal. But i don't want to spam the comment-section of the music-disk here too much with this subject.

@fra: Not 9, but 10 magnificent tunes! Your list of musicians is almost complete but you forgot to mention Koopa (who did the "Space Fantasy" tune). There are ten musicians and ten tunes. However, one of the tunes is a co-op between two musicians ("Pepperkakebaker 4" by Optic & Tecon) and there is a musician (mAZE) who did two tunes ("Can't Stop the Chip" and "End of Carnage").

I remember all this trivia because yesterday I did a few screenshots for demozoo while I was listening to the whole music-disk and everyone of them (except the presentation screen) shows a different credit.

Yea, initially was certain that it's a musicdisk of Mel O'Dee remakes.

Coding while listening to these excellent chiptunes...What else ?

An exceptionally well done chip collection! Solid code, fantastic design and pixelwork and great tunes... and even some interesting scrolltexts... Many thumbs up!

Nice music disk but I was expecting a music from the famous Amiga musician Mel'o'Dee / DCS but there is not a single one 🙈

Also, don't you think this prod is a little bit too much inspired by Melon's Cortez? ;)

Wonderful musicdisk! Just a note, I wish the text had a different scrollspeed from the lower hill layer. And another note, I wish for timestamps for each song on the youtube video :)

I figure Fantastic Colors is my fave out of the lot.

Am I the only one who gets a blank screen?

Amiga 500 with 512Kb trapdoor expansion. Tried with and without ACA500Plus board as well. Music plays but no image. Loaded from real floppy.

@Wavemaker: Can't confirm. Works here on A500, 512k trapdoor expansion, Kick1.2, real floppy.
