NEW IN V0.8
- ogg vorbis support: original soundtracks by Kenta Cho provided for stages
1-5 and 3 ENDLESS modes
- tracker music support (s3m, xm, mod) is still in place (tracker music
is provided for stages 6-10)
- custom ogg, s3m,xm,mod music support: replace existing stg00.*,stg0.*-stg9.*
files in sounds directory with your favorite music (there are plenty of
mp3/wav/atrac --> ogg converion tools available on the net).
- minor code optimizations.
Note, that ogg decoding requires more CPU cycles. So you may want to keep
tracker music for late & action packed stages of the game to make the
things run faster.
You can reset the High Scores by deleting the noiz2sa.prf...
You can still customize almost all other aspects of the gameplay or chose
the "classic" settings - just read the atatched documentation.
PS: It appears that there is another port of NOIZ2SA development taking
place at snv.ps2dev.org. This, more straight forward, port approach is based
on the most recent versions of SDK, SDL as well as other recent PSP libraries.
While it is still not as fast & polished as this version of the game,
it definitely worth keeping an eye on.

- Color customization: all game colors can be re-assigned by changing ./images/colors.txt
colors are in 8 bit RGB format (where R,G,B range from 0 to 255.
Note that actual display color components are in 5 bit format, meaning that
colors (255,255,255) & (254,254,254) are going to look the same on the
- New color theme. Of course, if you don't like it, create your own or use
the classic one by swapping files in images directory withthe ones from
- Side panels can be changed by editing corresponding images in ./images
Make sure you keep the size the same & save images as 8 bit BMPs.
- Expanded soundtrack support. Each finite level has it's own soundtrack
- FX volume adjustment: get the perfect music/fx ratio with [SQARE] &
[TRIANGLE] buttons during the game play.
- Soundtrack playback in main menu.
- New soundtrack added.
NOTE: you can still use any mod/s3m/xm/it files as your game music. Make
sure that they have <8 channels, named propery & put in the sounds
- Rendering optimizations: frame rate is boosted from 20fps (v.05) to 30fps
normal / 60fps
wireframe mode. Wireframe mode can be enabled by setting "RENDER_BG
0" in ./images/colors.txt file. If set, background is not filled with
color, which, in my opinion, creates a nice effect & saves lot's of
CPU juice for boosting the frame rate.
- Numerous bug fixes: it should not hange on exit anymore, play sound on
extra life bonus and so on.
- Source code, although not clean and highly unreadable, is released. Use
the latest build of PSPSDK to build. You'll need to install a bunch of libraries
from ps2dev.org prior to build...
