    You know the one.


    Well, I recreated the font from that into a usable format - "Banana in Your Pocket"
    Feel free to use it for whatever. It looks great in a signature!

    (Font dumped from ROM by @AyanamiRei0 and altered by me)

    I hated those damn things XD Always took forever to load, so I found ROMs without them out of spite.

    Guess I'm more of a preservationist.

    I can understand why you think the cracktro itself if horrible but I'm rather fond of it myself.
    I do like clean ROMs, but cracktros can be fun by themselves.

    i really liked echelon's intro on skies of arcadia, i used to put the disk in just to listen to it sometimes :)
    some also have trainers built in, just for fun.
    if the music and graphics are nice enough, i don't mind. it's better than the game stopping half way and popping up with an advert (websites and videos these days!)

    of course, i prefer a perfect, archive, exact data backup rom :)

    The Demoscene is freaking sweet. I had a sweet spot for Fairlight and Razor1911

    I honestly didn't like the intros. They take forever to skip. Should've seen how many times I kept mashing the heck out of that A Button.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    damn that is a sweet song, but did that "trtrtrtrtrtrtrtrtrtr" noise was part of it, or is the bad recording?

    well, @CeeDee is trying to preserve the font :teach::teach:

    guys we get it, you have a strong erected opinion about cracktros, but this is about the font used on one of thoose, please don't get so startled :bow:

    i'm not too sure which part you mean sorry! but you can get the actual .mod file from the guy's website, at least you could a while ago, and that would be perfect etc :)

    Between insane and insecure
    I miss those so much. I miss when it wasn't considered a proper dump if the game didn't have an intro and wasn't trimmed.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    didn't need foobar, linux xplayed played it fine :D it's a cool music
    the noise is still there, i mean there is a "background" instrument (or noise) (more noticiable in the video) who resembles like interference you get in analog audio
    it makes me remember the old days when my sega composite to antenna adapter had corrusion on it which made the sound have interference

    I love cracktro's remembers me from the good old C64/Amiga 500 days.


    When I was busy with my first GBA flashcard (XGflash 256mbit) many GBA games got a cracktro some with trainers.
    Most off those roms also get a Sram patch to save games on older GBA flashcards.

    Some NDS games got a cracktro, but not that many.

    If some poeple like those cracktro tunes, can try sounds from the demoscene (c64,Amiga,ZX Spectrum).
    Poeple are still making chiptunes/demos for those old computers, like this one:

    I wish people still made cracktros and intros. Miss that big time. Release it with an "iamlame.ips" patch that removes the intro like Capital did back in the GBC days, for all I care.

    @cearp, I loved that Skies of Arcadia cracktro tune, too!
