 Konami Amusement Sounds '93 ... Summer
 King Record  KICA-7616-7617  Aug 21, 1993

(Corroborated by its entry in 2012-04-22
 version of the BridgeM1 List Pack)

This pack was originally made using MAME 0.144
(modified by Valley Bell). It also had to wait
a few weeks before release because vgm_cmp.exe
did not support K054539 at the time I made it.
Those who listened at the time generally found
the results were worth it.

On April 8, 2014, Valley Bell released a mod of
MAME 0.152, whose updates included a fix to its
K054539 timer emulation meaning that
soundtracks using the chip now play at the
correct tempo. However, I had to wait until
VGMPlay and in_vgm were updated on April 12 to
check whether my original pack would play at
the correct speed. Seeing that it didn't, I
went through the trouble of logging, trimming,
and optimizing the tracks again using MAME
0.152.

Thus, starting from the second version of this
pack, each track plays with the right tempo.
Those who listened to the first version of the
pack will most easily notice this with "Black
Boots", which plays at almost the same fast
tempo as its Sega Genesis / Mega Drive
arrangement compared to the slower one its VGM
file used to have.

Also, this pack originally used a Japanese
tracklist transcript from the Web, once
featured on VGMdb, that included incorrect
spelling and grammar such as "ROLLINGBADGUYS"
for "ROLLING BADGUYS" and "KUCKY PLUCKY" for
"LUCKY PLUCKY." On October 15, 2014, VGMdb
user Jodo Kast submitted scans of the "Konami
Amusement Sounds '93 ... Summer" album
booklet, finally revealing how the tracks were
titled on the album, which led to the VGMdb
tracklist being fixed three days later. I did
not learn of this until November 20, 2014, and
on that day, I went back to this pack and
redid the tags to use the correct Japanese
titles and translations. Now, starting from
version 2.50, the pack's tracklist accurately
reflects the one originally featured on the
album. The only additional information is in
the Stage and Chase BGM tracks, in which the
Notes tag includes which sections of the game
each of those tracks plays in just like in
previous versions.

Thanks to Valley Bell for for updating vgm_cmp
the day before I submitted the original
version of this pack, and for updating the
MAME mod to make it possible for this pack to
feature the correct tempos; and thanks to
Jodo Kast for making the polished tracklist
possible!
