First and foremost, I'd like to dedicate this
set to Lillymon, probably the most hardcore
Ristar fan out there. This set's for her. :)

This set was intended as another Sonic 3 and
Knuckles stopgap, and it ultimately failed, with
me ripping about 4 songs before abandoning it.
All files were reripped in late July and the
whole set was worked on rather speedily, oddly
like S3&K. (There was a fair gap of about 13
hours though, so it wasn't totally  done
straight, unlike S3&K. Also because the few
songs I ripped were done on an ANCIENT version
of Kega Fusion  (.1b) and I wanted them to be as
accurate as possible. :p

Really choice music here, with some quite
memorable (and in lots of cases, hard to time!)
tunes. With a little more marketing push, Ristar
could very well have become a second mascot,
kind of like Link is to Nintendo. Then there's
Pulseman... but that will have to wait for that
particular rip. :)

Opening Theme 2 has the Title Screen music in
its loop.  Yes, I could have ripped it
seperately, but it doesn't  have a sound test
entry, so I left it as thus.

Round 6-1's music damn near hurt my ears. Round
6-2 isn't fun either, but hey, I dealt with it
for the five people that want to hear those
things loop for hours. :p

Ronud Clear 2's SFX are a bit distorted at the
start (Specifically, the "Shimmer" at about 1
second in.) Not much I can do about it - it's
either logger or sound engine errors.

In theory, I could have ripped the Songs in
Onchi Mode as well, to beef the OST to 54 songs,
but I don't think a lot of people would want
that, since all it does is distort the normal
song notes and sound really fucked up. If you
want to hear them that bad, enter the password
MAGURO at the password screen and go into the
sound test - I actually had to do this to rip
the Ending Themes, as they are locked without
this code.

Outta Here.

As in my World of Illusion Beta set, I simply
reused the tags from the relevant songs, adding
"With Intro" and the like. Again, because of my
lack of knowledge of Japanese, I couldn't add
these parentheticals to the Japanese tags.

I believe NOT including the Onchi Mode songs
was a wonderful idea, by the way!
