I am currently trying to find a way to get the soundtrack of Riverhill Soft's 1990 MSX Turbo-R game, "Seed of Dragon". If you any idea on how I should get it, please let me know. Thank you.

Maybe someone made a KSS or VGM set.

During development Seed of Dragon was supposed to get MIDI support as well, but was later dropped (perhaps because the ST didn't have midi). Anyone know if there are any MIDI files out there for this great game?

I couldn't find a KSS or VGM set of this game anywhere. I was hoping someone made one.

If someone makes the KSS (beyond my abilities) I will gladly create the VGM pack (something I can do Wink)

Thank you very much. Big smile
Also, I did not know that Riverhill Soft was going to utilize MIDI capabilities for that game, but they didn't. It would've been cool. Smile

Yes, it would indeed have been cool. You can see adds in MSX Magazine from back in those days with MIDI on it for quite some time and then the MIDI is left off (sadly).

Yeah. I bet it would've been awesome if the game also used MT-32 support.

This question is to sdsnatcher73. How does one create a .KSS file?

Basically a KSS file is the raw music replayer code of the games songs including any initialization of the sound chips and a header, some info in this thread. The difficult part (well for me) of course finding the code on the game disks (or in the memory when the game is running) and then extracting all songs from the disks and making a file that adheres to kss format specifications.

That does sound tough for me. I do not know anything about coding.
