I'm 99% sure that Bcastle is originally from the game "Romance of the Three Kingdoms (V, probably)". Here's the soundtrack, the original starts at 16:33 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGNODXNMpVY .

Well, since the board is still up, in the interest of archival accuracy I want to add a few things to the music list that weren't quite right as of this post:

A+aeka - "Sad Ayeka" from Tenchi Muyo
Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gnXeMqifEsA

Bsadromance - "Lose One's Illusions" from Star Ocean: Second Story
Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aiCv9ulvXuY

Abuta - "Blue Sky of the Adriatic Sea" from Porco Rosso Image Album
It's on Spotify @ https://open.spotify.com/album/4CD6wcfmrKCorMP2K8DMkw, Youtube only has cover versions

BCastle - from Romance of the Three Kingdoms V, as VVayfarer stated, which led me to find the Sega Saturn version, on which the MIDI is based. Again, no Youtube link, but it's "3G_08" on this page: https://www.zophar.net/music/sega-saturn-ssf/sangokushi-v or "16 BGM_RYUUBI" on this page: https://www.zophar.net/music/playstation-portable-psp/sangokushi-v

And since C_Fashion_Botique never had a YT link to begin with, here's a current one*: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TLZtRRn9JhI


Mainly I just want someone else to find this and appreciate BGM_RYUUBI as much as I did. It's so good that after I downloaded it, my BCastle.mid quit playing properly!

*All Youtube links guaranteed to break within 12 months or by the time anyone reads this, whichever comes first.

Thanks! I updated the list. I'm aware a bunch of the links are broken, I'll see if I can fix them up at some point.

The first posting of this list predates youtube actually, so links were hard to come by. Even early youtube didn't have people uploading soundtracks in bulk like they do now, so I'm not surprised some we didn't have links for at the time can be found now.

Hey thanks, Jeramyu! I wasn't expecting any response for a few more years. My impetus for posting was that I finally got around to making my own MP3 soundtrack and I was hoping the passage of time would uncover the sources of some of the unknown songs. I've sat through so many hours of old RPG soundtracks listening for something I recognized, but all I found were better sources for songs that we already kind of knew where they came from. But I figured I'd share what I had since I'd been checking on this topic for years and thought that surely some other lurker would appreciate it.

While I'm at it, I'll share my tracklist for putting the songs in order of appearance. A few notes:

- I did not include Salvation's Name because I didn't have it in my version and I wasn't sure where it showed up originally.

- Magical Mystical doesn't appear in gameplay, so I didn't bother listing it.

- Were Buta, Hope We Can Do It, Look See Die, or Love Actually Maybe ever used in earlier versions of episodes? Because there are definitely no references to them in the final cut, but I hate not having a proper place on the list for them (I'll pass on Aeris' theme though).

- Episode 6's tracklist is of course a matter of personal taste. I based this off a Youtube playthrough (and not the most thorough one) to save time.

SalvationsName I have in a random folder I assembled from all the Way music folders I had at some point, but I can't find it in any of the ones I currently have. The fact we apparently knew it was an original midi? tells me it must've been listed as such in the credits of some episode at some point, and thus used, but I've got nothing (nor any memory of hearing it in game).

Abuta I'm fairly positive was never used. The rest I don't have any strong memory of hearing in the actual games, but it's hard to plumb the depths of my mind for every version of every episode I played.

I updated the links on the main post. Even fixed a few names/managed to find better links for a few. Everything should be working now.
