if u want better megaman:

I used that on my 2nd site design. Btw, i think you should use inline frames instead of frames, it's a bit old fashioned to use frames.

I like the idea of this site, if i just had a pholyphone telephone, i would use those 2tm! Instead I just listen those in browser ;)

I suggest making the site compatible with Mozilla browsers, other than that - najs.

Thanks for the megaman pics ;)

Well, I'm really an amateur what comes to creating web sites, I'm very pleased on what I managed to make so far. I'll check that inframe thing, thanks for the tip.

Glad you like it!

I'll be taking gladly more improvement suggestions ;)

I use Mozilla Firefox and the page looks perfectly ok with that one. Mozilla itself I haven't tried...

dz, very nice site :D

One funny thing though: When I've downloaded a tone, and the file is being marked (Or what its called) and you almost can't see the file anymore. Quite annoying.
Hope you understand.

really najs, but i have a question, did you sequnce all these themes or did you just record them from the ones on vgmusic? just a question as all, because that zelda 2 palace one sounds like the one I sequenced.

The MIDI tracks on this site are collected from all over Internet and modified
to be compatible with most of the mobile phones which supports MIDI format.

Yes, I have taken some of the MIDIs from vgmusic I believe and it might be yours (and probably is if you recognize it). I've modified them to be compatible with mobile phone MIDI player and reduced the lenght alot. Usually there's only one main melody and that's it. Also sound level is modified and often instruments taken away so that it sounds okay in mobile phones.

As it just happens to be that you are possibly one of the sequencer of the part of MIDI tracks I have on my site, what do you think about the whole thing? You want me to remove your track? I would be glad to mention the original composers of each track but it's not possible to be done with all cases so I've just had to do it the way that I mention how the thing is in about page. Btw, glad you like the idea ;)

I think the whole idea is a very good one, but i do think it would be better if you credited the sequencer when you can, besides, most of the sequencers put there names in the midis track names. do not remove my file, i don't mind about my midis being used as ringtones, but i'd like to get credit for it.

Anyway, that tetris song, it sounds familiar. Is that from a famous song I don't know, or have forgotten and which i should download? =)

Any other improvement suggestions you would like to point out? I'm leaving for a small xmas vacation on friday morning so I try to update stuff before that.

After quite some research done I've managed to track the original composers af almost every track and gave them credit along with their composed/sequenced track. Also, each of the tracks modified to the "standard" so no more work on them will be done. From now on I will be adding only new ones.

I know this doesn't concern maybe none of you but I also know there must be another freak who loves the idea and I hope they can enjoy it!
