Shredz64 – Thanks For All the Positive Feedback!

First off, I want to thank everyone who has sent me letters through this site, and YouTube comments. It’s always exciting to know there are other people out there who appreciate having fun with older computers (especially the C64!).

Also, just a heads up, don’t be upset if I don’t respond to you quickly this week – I am extremely sick right now with a bad fever and am pretty much in bed all day except when I work up enough energy to sit at the computer for a few minutes. Once my brain clears up I’ll be sure to respond to everyone that I haven’t already.

Thanks guys!

    Why don’t you put real music into shredz64? Stereo casette tape with guitars only on left channel and the rest (drums, vocals, bass etc.) on the right. The game mutes the guitar channel when there is an error (not a too difficult curcuit to build), the only issue is the music sync to the game (the guitar and the backing track sync should be okay because the stereo tape)?

    Definitely an interesting idea! I think the theory is definitely sound, but in practice due to the nature of tape, sync would always be off with the notes, plus you’d have to wait for the song to rewind, and you’d no longer have portability, a person couldn’t really download an audio tape over the Internet. They’d have to record the audio back to a tape, and then their tape would be slightly off from what the master tape was, etc. Definitely a cool idea, but a lot of the little details would prevent it from working well I think.

    Man I found your project on YouTube and must say I’m pretty impressed! I can’t wait go get home and try it out! Does the software read out the SIDs and automatically create notes?

    About the cassette-idea: I’d play the game just for the SIDs ^^

  4. Toni says:

    Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you look at it), the software does not auto generate the notes – for new songs, you must define your own notes using the built in editor (or upload notes other people have designed). I will be adding some new songs soon to the download section soon as well.

    Yeah add some famous stuff. Classic SIDs by Rob Hubbard or David Whittaker.
