The House of the Dead 1

Postby ConversusWV » December 12th, 2017, 7:34 pm

Hey everyone!
On the introductions thread, I mentioned House of the Dead is one of my favorite arcade games of all time. One deeming quality of the game is its legendary soundtrack, which many could argue the home versions had better quality.

Is there anybody on here who owns the arcade board or cabinet and a capture card? Because I have desperately searching for an authentic rip of the music from the test menu on HotD, and was wondering if anyone could provide me a rip.
I've played it on the Model 2 Emulator, and the audio on stage 2, the boss music and Magician theme songs have never sounded correct. Unfortunately, I believe the emulator author (ElSemi) was hired at SEGA, so he had to cease further development of the emulator. I've got a rip of Harley-Davidson & L.A. Riders (courtesy of uncletom1971) from the Model 3 board, but this is another game I've been interested in.

Here's a decent comparison:

https://www.hasntfiguredouthowtoembedyoutubeproperly.com/watch?v=lIVa53_NLLI (14:33 for the same music)
So I was wondering if anyone has the actual hardware/cab for the game and could record the sounds out of the test mode. I think the music deserves to be listened to in its full glory.

Cheers! :)

Might want to see if the game is supported in bridgem1. http://www.e2j.net/downloads.html. If it is, the emulation is excellent.
