All songs were ripped with Kega Fusion 3.63.

I noted all differences between the beta and
the final tracks in the track's comments.
The only thing I didn't note because it applies
to all tracks is that the drum set was changed.
(e.g. Snare Drum sounds different than in the
final game.)


I ripped all songs from the title screen.
Hacking was quite easy, because the game uses
filenames to identify its files.

The following list contains all information I
extracted from the ROM:

As you can see, Pier Solar's original name
"Tavern RPG" is still present.

Most track titles are the ones shown above. All
others are the final titles from the Pier Solar
Music Player ROM. One (Credits) is based on the
filename.


I used the VGM Loop Finder to trim all the
songs and noticed, that some songs (e.g. Boss
Battle) use random panning effects.

Because the game sends every DAC command twice,
I deleted every second DAC command. So I saved
50 % size even before running optvgm.
