I've been using one of the well known Aackosoft games' intro tunes (e.g. Oh Shit) as my ringtone for a while now. In my opinion it's a perfectly suitable tone for a phone (a traditional polyphonic tune that's impossible to miss or mistake for someone else's phone), though my colleagues beg to differ...

I'm considering changing it periodically to other suitable MSX tunes. One candidate I have in mind is Sorcery's intro tune.

Any other ideas for which existing MSX tunes constitute a decent ringtone? People who already use MSX or MSX-inspired ringtones?

Most game over tunes are probably pretty suitable. Nice and short.

This: Bubble Bobble 'Hillbilly Rodeo' OC ReMix ! ;-)

You'll make your friends/colleagues happy with that for sure!
(I edited it a bit myself / cut out most of the intro, which would otherwise be too long.)

But I reckon you're looking for real MSX chip-tunes right? ;-)
Perhaps something from Knightmare (game-start or main (stage 1) theme), or something from Pippols?
(And of course, you could use the original Bubble Bobble tune also ;))

Does Oh Shit! have an intro tune btw???

-edit-: more happy 'vibeyness' and quite suitable as a tone I reckon: Usas - Intermezzo :)

I have firebird- fate of the hero ( opening bars) as my ring tone. It does the job!

My version did. After "This is Joey, Paul, Willy and Frankie" it played on the cassette version.
I did see versions on Youtube that lacked this music though. Weird...

And I realize now that I have the 'other' omnipresent Aackosoft theme on my phone, but I'll have to look up the corresponding games that use it.

I have Metal Gear - Alert! as my ringtone and as SMS tone I have the Compile sound. Cool

I'll be! Wink I checked out some versions... Found out that the otra edición version @ msxcas has the music, as well as the 30 MSX Hits version from the Tosec collection. It's the same tune as Confused when you complete a puzzle! (Played that game fairly often, part of it was the catchy tune alright that kept me hooked (and made me move like a crazy idiot when I solved a puzzle / completed a 'stage')... ;-))

On a side note - does anyone know if dumps exist (floating around on the interwebs) of the 'MSX Compilation' series by Aackosoft? (Oh Shit! is also featured on MSX Compilation 5.)

The first version of Oh Shit! Didn't have an intro music. In later released versions (Eaglesoft/Eurosoft) the music was added.

I've had the pinguin adventure intro + first part of the first level music als ringtone. The Usas intermezzo seems like a good replacement. Or the metal gear 2 gameplay intro.
