Pity that the vast majority of them do not have added in-game music, but just to those intros with cheats - intros are boring, and cheats are for sissies :P

On the other hand, in-game music, from the ST, Amstrad or MSX versions, really adds atmosphere. I wish programmers did it from the start back in the day.

Hmm. I’ve always been of two minds about AY music. On the one hand, it’s certainly better than nothing, and it can be played with a (relatively) little performance hit during gameplay. On the other, beeper tunes just sound more . . . atmospheric and rich, if done properly. Even the simple one- or two-channel ones. The “bubbly” sounds of the AY can get really annoying.

But the effort is certainly commendable!

I noticed that several of those games have been "fitted" with AY sound effects. This is also very welcome.

I think I found a bug in Rygar. The giant pill-bug-like monsters, when coming up to the surface, stay on the spot instead of bouncing around like they did in the original version and in the arcade coin-op.

I noticed it too while making my recent mod of Rygar. I believe it comes from the main .tap file for Rygar in WOS/ZXDB:
https://archive.org/download/World_of_S ... ar.tap.zip

This file has this bug too and I believe the bug was introduced while making this .tap, becaase it's absent in tzx version. And Russian hackers unfortunately used this .tap for their work.
I wanted to mention it at some time but believed it's rather low importance. But as it was already mentioned maybe it's time to replace this file?
@Einar Saukas Is it possible to mark a file in ZXDB as corrupted?

Cheers @Ralf @druellan . I can't mark the file as corrupt, but even better is if someone can find a working file that can replace it.

Does anyone have such a file?
