Original Rags is Scott Joplin's first printed ragtime.
Impossible Mission II (C64)
In Impossible Mission II, you have to collect 6 unique musical sequences. On the way, you may find two duplicates and have to erase them. On the C64, the 6 sequences have the same melody, but different instruments. In an apparent pre-release for the C64, the melody is Original Rags. In the final game, it's the much shorter Sequence 4.
Although the SID chip could do better, some of the instruments are so similar that the duplicates may be hard to find for some ears. In the pre-release, two instruments even sound exactly the same, but can be distinguished by a wave on the bottom.
Unlike the theme in the final game, the driver is custom, tuned to NTSC and synchronized to the screen refresh. At least until the arrangers' original settings are known, all are recorded. People who worked at Novotrade could be asked for confirmation. Sadly, one of them told C64.COM that Gábor Pongyor passed away.
- VICE 3.2 with the model C64C NTSC.
- A real C64C PAL with an 8580 R5 4091.
The sequences are all 5 tracks in the rip labelled pre-release.
