Music Oddities

Training 1

One of the training songs actually has an unused melody that is associated to a instrument sample that isn't actually in the game. As a result, the melody cannot be heard. The game uses a general midi patch order for their instruments and using that information, one can assume it would have been an organ sample. Below is a recreation as to how it may have sounded with the in-game version for comparing.

Re-creation In Game


The fortress theme has many more crash cymbals than what is heard in-game. These don't play due to polyphony issues. Some notes also get cut out at times.
