Phantasy Star III — Question about battle music hacking...
« on: October 29, 2016, 12:12:03 pm »
Hej guys!

Phantasy Star on Genesis/Megadrive is a wonderful RPG saga,
however the music on the third episode - PSIII Generations of Doom
has great themes, but but really annoying samples, like for instance
that horrible battle music.

The question: does anyone know if there is any hack out there that
fixes or replaces the Phatasy Star III tunes? At least that noisy battle theme?

Thanks!

There isn't one, but a user here is planning to make an extensive PS3 hack and we've talked loosely about replacing some of the music.

It's FM synth fyi, not samples. You can make your own version with for example the Deflemask tracker.

There's also this thread about replacing instrument files in the original tracks, you can ask how to do it there, but the difference probably won't be that big compared to a full remake of the track(s).

Thank you very much, PresidentLeever!

I am a huge fan of Phantasy Star series, and the only one missing to be played is Phantasy Star III. I will follow the topic you did mention on SEGA-16. I already applied for a account there, just waiting for my sign-up to be approved.
