Who created this tracker module? (.MOD)
« on: July 08, 2019, 20:51:36 »

Hi, long time ago I ripped following MOD file (see attachments) from an old MS-DOS game. The file did not have an header / internal title so I had to fabricate one myself (LEVEL_2) in order to be able to play the MOD.

Text in the samples does not seem to help either, only clue is the strange "t h e r e ' s  n o  m e d i c i n e  a g a i n s t !!!" text which seems to be pointing to composer Beathoven, but this does not seem to be his work?

Anyone recognizes what this is?

Knowing the game's name would be helpful :)

The game is called Pacho 98 and it was developed by slovak company called KiloSoft.

Here is pretty much only relevant reference to the game which I managed to find on the internet. Sadly the page is in slovak so it probably won't be of much use to you guys. The page does not contain download nor any more details about the game like credits for example anyways:

When I return home I will do some quick check of my drive, I think I still have the game archived and if so, I will spin up DosBox to see whether there are any credits in the game.  :)

Alright, so I did have a backup of the game on my drive. I had a look through the menu and game files, however the game does not have any credits.

Comparing the age of the game and sound of the module, I find it likely that the music was downloaded from some website or BBS and used without credits. As you found out yourself, it is rather likely that the tune is by beathoven due to the sample text. However, I cannot find any of his tunes which would have a similar size. Of course it's possible that someone took some track by beathoven and exchanged some samples, which would also explain why there are no credits in the sample text (they would have been overwritten in the process).
The only thing I can recommend at this point is downloading all of his works and checking if any of them sound similar to this tune.

Yes Saga Musix, I guess that is the only thing left to do.

I will download all of Beathoven's and also whole Infect demoscene group's stuff to see whether there will be any matches since that "no medicine against" seems to be their signature.

Thanks everyone for trying to help, I will update this thread once I find out something.
