WANTED: Morricone Music in GunSmoke
« on: May 12, 2014, 04:26:16 am »
Got bored and started to tinker with the graphics in GunSmoke.

So I updated some power-ups items and then got the idea to replace the cowboy west with a way cooler poncho
- like the one Clint was sporting back in the day.

After editing the in-game character, the intro and the outro it struck me...

- How epic it would be to include some music from the iconic soundtrack from the 'Dollar-triology' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dollars_Trilogy)

Don't get me wrong - I think the in-game music in GunSmoke for NES is great.

I ONLY want to replace the intro and outro music with some Morricone tunes, especially one/two of the following:

- The good, the bad & the ugly (theme): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tsIdYP1j6vg
- Ecstacy of goold (tGtBtU): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vd_vcV2qNZY
- For a few dollars more (theme)
- For a fistful of dollars (titoli)

But... I don't have the slightest idea how to do it!

So - If you too share the dream of a spaghetti western NES game AND have the skills to compose and insert music in a CapCom game:

Stand and deliver!

I'd be interested in seeing your sprite work so far.

Here is a teaser to get the hype going:



Please note that I manually pieced the above anim-gif together - it isn't 100% accurate to the NES intro.

Now - imagine this intro with revised text and set to a Morricone tune....
