A tribute to Rise of the Triad (Remastered)

Original version got really screwed up by both my encoder & YouTube compression. This is an attempt to correct that. Now presented in proper aspect ratio:

Nikita logo 1994

A cool animated logo of a Russian company Nikita only featured in one game (as far as I know) – White House Siege (aka Super Toppler), a sequel to their first international hit Perestroika. Sound from PC Speaker.
The music is a classic tune by Mikhail Glika which was modern Russia’s first anthem (no lyrics) before the USSR anthem with new lyrics replaced it.

DMA Design logo 1997

This publisher-developer logo was taken from Grand Theft Auto (DMA/BMG, 1997)

ORIGIN FX logo 1990

A cool logo taken from Worlds of Ultima: The Savage Empire by ORIGIN Systems, 1990. Also seen in Wing Commander 1 & 2, and with the planet replaced with Mars in Ultima: Worlds of Adventure 2 – Martian Dreams

1991 Martian Dreams version:

 

Tomahawk logo 1991

A logo for a French publisher Tomahawk taken from 1991 Coktel Vision title A.G.E. (Advanced Galactic Empire)

My Coktel Vision wish came true!

Greetings, everyone!
If you follow me on Twitter, you probably know that I’m a big fan of a French game company called Coktel Vision. For YEARS I wished there was a way to extract the wonderful OPL music from these games and now there is!

Thanks to the most amazing Coktel expert Sven Hesse aka DrMcCoy there’s now a program that scans the resources of a Coktel Vision game and extracts & converts all the music into VGM format. I can hardly believe it!

You can get the source code as well as compiled Linux & Windows binaries here: http://github.com/DrMcCoy/CoktelADL2VGM/releases
