Ristar is so awesome, too bad the great music sometimes sounds a bit muffled. :?

In my opinion, Ristar is the best Platformer on the Genesis. Try listening to the soundtrack in order with no gaps in between the songs sometime; it is almost like it works together as one long song!

Ristar is definitely a brilliant game. It's right up there with the Sonic, Rocket Knight and Dynamite Headdy.

What version of Genesis are you using Ryan (if not emulation)? Not all Genesis sound hardware is created equal.

Using my Model 1 High Definition Graphics model modified with S-Video and stereo AV. Everything sounds great on it, but some things in Ristar sound a bit muffled.

The soundtrack is amazing. IIRC the soundtrack is written by the same woman that did Nights Into Dreams.

Yeah, the HDG models are definitely the best outside ones with the crystal clear audio mod so I guess blaming the console is out.

Why not upgrade?

If his rig is so old that it can't even run TF2 functionally, it might not be feasible to or worth salvaging.
