MP3 Music

Game Rips

I only use two different music players, they both support plugins for playing native coded music files like the PlayStation's .str (movie), .xa (compressed audio, like mp3).

You will also need the vgmstream plugin for playing the .str and .xa files.

I converted the native files into mp3 a long time ago.

Arcade Recordings

Both of these were recorded from my arcade boards a very long time ago.

Fun fact that you can get through the whole of the first stage on Thunder Cross without shooting or hitting anything to get the first stage tune with no soundfx in the background.

Winamp skin by Jerryman X

It would seam people can do better, here's a very nice skin from Jerryman X

This skin is dedicated to one of the coolest video game series of all time! It's a shooter by Konami that has most of it's sequels only in Japan(I saw Gradius II there in '89, and have loved it ever since). Some nifty features it has are a chrome oscilloscope that I did myself(feel free to use the viscolor.txt for your own skins, just be sure to gimme some credit) and graphics ripped from the game (options, shield graphics).
