For another games inspired by Arkanoid, see Arkanoid.

DX-Ball is a JavaScript recreation of the original Windows release of this quite famous Arkanoid-style game.

Music

The music is the same with W32 release. There are two noticeable differenses: the sounding differs (see below) and you can't switch back to the another tracks by pressing F5 - tracks are just repeating 1-3 times, then it changes to the different track in the order.

As the author confessed in the Habrahabr , he just converted the MDS files into MP3. The sounding indicated that for this the MIDI Decoder was used (in "Emu de MIDI" mode, making the notes different). Specifically, he firstly converted MDS to WAV using this software, then WAV to MP3.

Recording

Just converted MDS to WAV using MIDI Decoder and WAV to OGG with Audacity. It doesn't sound like with Roland SCC-1 patch set, but sounds like specific sound chip.

The game use MP3 for music (converted from MDS in original, see [[DX-Ball 2 (W32)#Game Rip) and WAV for sounds. Because the MP3 music is 1:1 to OGG, the MP3s were excluded from the rip.
