I was able to port Thunder Force 2 music to Thunder Force 4 and yes you can port songs from one Thunder Force game to another or another Techno Soft games for mega drive. You can also port voices too. I was wondering is it possible to port the full track of Big na Okata 4 from Thunder Force 2 X68000 and the voices.

Here's a video that I made: http://youtu.be/tiMrsnRx3LM
Works well on Kega Fusion.
Back to Thunder Force II hacking again.
