Future Wars

Post by russellnash » Thu May 27, 2021 8:08 am

The first Atari I had was an STE and the first game I played on it was Future Wars



I went to play it recently for the first time in 31 years on an STE. I used the Ultrasatan version. The original was also installable on hard drive. The thing that made it special for me to this day was the music. I didn't know at the time but only the STE played this wonderful music. It also made me think at the time that ST games generally must have great music. When I started the game I was surprised when at the intro I got chip music. As far as I can tell if you play an original copy of the game from floppy you get STE music, but not from hard disk or other versions. I haven't tried all menu versions yet so maybe there is a version that plays the STE music too. Here is a not so good recording of the STE intro music. Couldn't upload a music file to the board. I cannot find the STE music soundtrack anywhere on the internet, so maybe it will be lost forever?

You may have more luck with the french version.

You can hear this version has the digi music



There is a thread on AF with a demo with just the digi music playing(from amiga iirc). I had the budget kixx release for which the digi music did not work(STE support was why I had bought it as already had a version)! It apparently streamed from disk rather than using a tracker type music player on STE

Just wondering, does that include PPera's HD adapted version or did he do one?

Never mind, found that in your post...

If it were me, I would simply go here and politely tell him about the music problem,
and ask if he could look at it:

Hi, thanks, yes that is the wonderful original STE music. It is probably a good idea to ask as you say. I tried copying the original disks, double sided, as the original disks are supposedly single sided, but you don't get the music. At some point the originals won't work and it would be a shame to lose it forever.
