GameStone's Chiptune Collection

This archive contains most of the Gradius related chip tunes I could find.

If you would like to read more about chiptunes then the Wiki below would be a good place to start.

1st March 2017 - v1.20 - 158MB - Changelog

Chiptune Players

All three programs are portable (foobar2000 has an option to install a portable version on install).

Audio Overload

https://www.bannister.org/software/ao.htm

Almost plays all the formats but the interface is a little poor, does not support m3u playlists or song length data so you have to manually advance to the next song. Mac, Windows and Linux versions are availible.

Doesn't play - sid (Commodore 64), minigsf (Game Boy Advance)

XMPlay (with various native and Winamp plugins)

http://www.xmplay.com/

Most compatible - All formats play

The most versitile player due to the fact it can run its own native plugins as well as the Winamp plugins, also supports m3u playlists.

Best choice for Commodore 64 sid tunes because of the HVSC songlenth database and STIL support, plus the tunes sound better compaired to the foobar2000 plugin.

foobar2000 (with various plugins)

https://www.foobar2000.org/

My main music player for mp3 that also plays most of the chip tune formats, also supports m3u playlists.

Other

You could use good old Winamp but the programs got a little too bloated and interface has got way to complex, this was one of the reasons I started using foobar2000, which loads faster and has a nice simple interface.

Game Simulation Videos

Last year I bought a secondhand VHS video recorder with a build-in DVD recorder, I then spent a few weeks capturing all the Gradius videos I have.

In April 2019 I encoded all those videos on the PC to h265 HEVC, as they are still a little too large for the site, there will be torrents just like the Salamander anime I put up earlier.

These releases also include 300dpi scans of all the artwork with each release.
