Re: A Hidden Homage

I've known this for about a year and a half now, but I still find this fascinating nonetheless. It's worth noting that in the ROM, the internal names for the Funky mini-games are referred to as Cobra Tracks (e.g. Cobra Track 0, Cobra Track 1, etc., all the way up to Cobra Track 4), which is an obvio...

Re: Unused level end fanfare music in DKC3?

Well, I never considered that this music would be used in the two-player contest mode, because I've never played that mode before. So, I learned something new from this thread. Nice find! Though, I hope I didn't get people's hopes up with the false alarm of discovering unused music. I wonder if DKC ...

Hello! I think I may have found unused level fanfare music in the SNES version of DKC3. To explain: the ROM offsets $C38D-C418 (in the US version, at least -- I haven't looked at other versions yet) contain a data structure of songs to be played in the hidden music test (accessed by pres...
