Since pretty much all of as belong to the nostalgic generation which played the best console (N64) with the best games (Rareware), I guess quite a few of you loved the inclusion of a 64-bit-shader-mode, which strips the graphics down to the level of games like Banjo-Kazooie & -Tooie.
But what about the music? I think that, additionally to this mode, it would be awesome to include an option for a MIDI-mode, which features instrument-samples that are similar (or equal) to the ones on the original N64 cartridges. I think it wouldn't be too hard to implement such a mode, so I'd suggest to add this as another stretch goal. Why not add it to the 64-bit mode? Because I might like to change only to the sound, but not the graphics
Oh and about that orchestral soundtrack: I love this idea! And I think it should be the primary version of the music in this game: Top-notch graphics go with top-notch sounds & music
The MIDI-Mode would be just a nice gimmick primarily for the "older generation", as I'd put it. Oh, and yes, this is discussed in another thread (Orchestral Soundtrack), but as I see it, the MIDI mode should be the optional one.
What do you think? Might this option be the best way to please the nostalgic crowd?
(By the way, somebody posted a link with a MIDI version of the Jungle theme... can you re-post it here please?)
