Talk:Nobunaga no Yabou: Game Boy Ban 2
Connections to Graphic Research?
While grepping for binary strings unique to various sound drivers, I accidentally discovered that Nobunaga no Yabou: Game Boy Ban 2 seems to use the same sound driver as various games developed by Graphic Research (e.g., World Beach Volley). Does anyone know any more details of Nobunaga's credits, and more specifically, whether any Graphic Research audio devs are credited in it?
One of the telltale byte sequences is
21 18 00 19 78 FE 01 28, which seems to occur repeatedly in games from Graphic Research and Tamsoft (composer Fumito Tamayama worked for both companies).
(The sound driver's developer seems to be Yasuyuki "Hyakumangoku" Hamada, given the kanji credit on the World Beach Volley sound test screen, though Tamayama may also have played a part in its development.)
After some discussion with @gdri on Twitter (thread), it seems likely that the connection was Studio Cliche, a group founded by the above-mentioned Fumito Tamayama in 1995. They're credited for the music in at least one other game by Koei, albeit on a different platform: Ishin no Arashi for Saturn (MobyGames listing). --CodeMan38 (talk) 12:41, 6 November 2016 (EST)
