You generally seem to find things you've forgotten you own when you move and have to go through everything. This is the case, as I have found several CDs of a "MacCubed" CD set. At the time, I think it was around '96 or so, it was a distribution of shareware and freeware across about 7 CD's, that when shrinkwrapped, resembled a cube. The CDs were split up into things such as "Arcade", "Games", "Utilities and Internet", and so on. I've recovered about 4 of them. Some of the things I had to make sure I saved off to the server before these CDs die were a few things:
Galuxus and Dark Coronoa, both shareware versions of the Algomedia games, which were top scrolling space shooters. I loved them, and the run reasonably well on 68030 Macs with color screen. The music in them, for the modules (not the MIDIs) is EXCELLENT. I went through great lengths recently to track down the theme song to Dark Corona, which can be found here in MOD format. These are both shareware, and hense perfectly fine to distribute today, even though Algomedia seems to have bitten the dust, although their site displays... something.
Another one is PlayerPRO, which has interest to me because it's a MOD, S3M, IT, and whathaveyou tracker for 68k and PPC Macs (included is the FAT binary version). It holds pretty true to the ProTracker 1 standard set for Amigas, but things done later in ImpulseTracker and FastTracker 2 may sound a bit off, but generally the good old modules play just fine. There's a bit of history to this one. Most games that incorperated modules at the time used some form of Rosette's PlayerPRO embedded code in their games, such are the two example games above. In the last few years, the application was carbonized and *then made Freeware*. However, Quadmation, the site it was hosted on, has taken it down per Rosette's request, which is sadly the end of one of the best trackers for the Mac. But here I contain one of the older versions, that I use currently to track on my PowerBook quite happily. Hit up the modarchive.com and find some tunes to play on your old Mac. Great fun, check out the screensaver too.
I have a few more CD's like this, so perhaps I'll find more of these old goodies laying around that can't be found anywhere else.
