Sound Code[edit]

Doommaster1994:
I matched the lowest octave frequency registers of the TOSE sound driver with the games listed in red.
Will get to the  confirmed games when I can.
These strings of the frequency registers can be found in these games:
AE 06 4E 06 F4 05 9E 05 4D 05 01 05 B9 04 75 04 35 04 F9 03 C0 03 8A 03 (C octave 1 to B octave 1)
This exact string of sound code can be found in the following "red" games:
Argus: $7785
Choplifter: $7C76
Kanshakudama Nage Kantarou no Toukaidou Gojuusan Tsugi: $5B11
Law of the West: $7E89
Lost Word of Jenny: $1BF8A
Legend of Kage: $4ABF (J)
Mississippi Satsjin Jiken: $3BE6
Mito Koumon Sekai Maryuu: $183EB
StarTropics: $3FDDB-$3FDF2
StarTropics 2: $3FBA5-$3FBBC
Tashiro Masashi no Princess ga Ippai: $1F511
Tatakae! Chou Robotto Seimeitai Transformers: Convoy no Nazo: $57D0
Urusei Yatsura: Lum no Wedding Bell: $6AA2

Confirmed games:
Toxic Crusaders: $05A7

This doesn't mean much. A quick search turns up an identical string in games confirmed developed by, among others, Natsume, Sunsoft, Vic Tokai, Tengen, Konami... -djsw

Yes, some other games have similar coding. However, instrument design, musical styles, shared sound effects, and the publishers can also help identify it as Tose. Also, some of those sound engines list the note data for more than one octave, while Tose's uses an algorithm to divide frequencies by 2. Most of the other aforementioned drivers have one or two different values, as well as the numbers around them.
