This on its way to becoming a good port, and it does some nice things, like the lead instrument choice starting around 0:56; however, it also has some issues which prevent me from accepting it.

The biggest thing that I notice is that the strings on channels #0 and #4 starting around 0:32 are not only incorrect to the original as the second chord is missing, but it also ends up sounding kind of loud and obnoxious, partially because of the ADSR having no fadeout. There's a mixing issue here as well: the strings drown out the flute, which shouldn't be the case.

Speaking of ADSR, I'd also recommend changing the ADSR of the lead @11 starting around 0:04 as well. The original's strings aren't slow strings, so I'd suggest setting the delay and attack of your @11 each closer to F.

The section starting aroud 0:38 is missing the extra layer of string/flute that the original has. I'm not sure if that's what channel #5 is supposed to be, but either way, it's too quiet to tell.

As for the cymbal at the beginning, I'd suggest playing around with noise (the nXX command), since it sounds closer to a cymbal than @29.

There seems to be a slight mixing/octave issue with the trumpets in the beginning as well. The @4 you've used it much lower in pitch than the trumpets of the original, along with the lower octave being louder than the higher octave, unlike the original, so it sounds off.

With a song like this where the original is orchestrated, I'd strongly recommend experimenting with vibrato, especially on the string channels, to make the sound much fuller. Try experimenting with the panning as well.

After changing up ADSR and panning, I'd strongly recommend overhauling the mixing of the entire port to account for the changes.

Finally, your .txt could use some improvements when it comes to optimization. The most immediate thing I noticed was
[o3c8r8c16r16r4c16r16r8c16r16]3
[o3c8r8c16r16r4c16r16r8c16r16]5

on channel #6. These loops could be merged together since they're identical.
There's some other easily-loopable sections, as well as some things that shouldn't be in loops, so I'd suggest you take a closer look at your optimization; my list isn't comprehensive.

One more thing, when tagging your submission, please use tags from the official tag list on the Submit File page; none of the tags you used are from there.
