I've recorded the intro music once for the author of
the KiGB emulator.
KiGB comes pretty close, but it's still not how it
should be.

I think this bug is a bit of a challenge :)

I'll try to describe the music.
VBA 1.8.0-beta 3:

There is a pattern of two sets of 8 tones

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 - 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

In VBA it's:

Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da Ba-Ba-Ba-Ba-Ba-Ba-Ba-Ba

All 8 tones are the same in each set.
There is a loop.

I've picked one 'tone' from the orignal music and
marked its position.
Listen to alone.mp3 and try to follow the tones.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 - 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
1 . . . . . x . . - . . . . . . x .
2 . . . . . . . . - x . . . . . . .
3 . . . x . . . . - . . . . . x . .
4 . . . . . . x . - . . . . . . . x
5 x . . . . . . . - x x . . . . . .
6 . . x . . . . . - . . . x . . . .
7 . . . . x . . . - . . . . . x . .
...

There doesn't seem to be a pattern in the music.
No loop. All sounds seem to play randomly.

    Here is the alone.zip again:

    I think you need to copy parts of what I've written to
    Notepad and choose a monospace font... Fixedsys, Courier
    New.

    Thanks ;)
    I've tried to look (very briefly) into this bug some weeks
    ago, and it didn't seem to be funny to fix xD
    And this bug isn't 'crucial' for the emulation, I prefered
    to let it aside.
    I might take another look at it, if I can understand how
    the sound works.
