This is an arrangement Cross Your Heart, the first stage theme from Konami's Castlevania arcade game Haunted Castle. I had this song stuck in my head for about a week and decided to let it out of my head and into a port.
This song can fit castle, factories, towers, and intense levels / scenarios.
There is a !! Read Me!!.txt file that has the sample bank that you need to move to Addmusic_sample_groups.txt. Thunder and Yoshi sound effects are disabled.
There are three customizable pitches for this song that you can adjust in the song file:
- f# minor (The default pitch from the original game)
- g minor (Based on Crucifix Held Close from Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin)
- e minor (A custom pitch that I thought sounded pretty cool for this song)
If you haven't already, check out Ultima's arrangement of Crucifix Held Close, a similar song from Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin. It's a well-crafted arrangement that some may prefer over this one if you liked that version better than what Haunted Castle had to offer.
mod note: the $EE command used in versions 1 and 2 detunes certain sound effects very slightly.
