Hi.
Does anyone know of a site for MIDI music/online repository of old game MIDIs that are already compiled by Game tittle and zip packed ready to download?.
I am finding several MIDI webs, all awesome stuff, but the MIDIS are often downloadable by individual songs (sometimes,..rarely by game) so I got to download all songs separately to come up with a fully compiled game title.
Thinking lazy and easy... I was wondering if there was such a MIDI game library compilation all zip packed and ready to download.
I am trying to build a small floppy based MIDI library of old DOS games (see pics below) and going song by song is quite a time consuming tasks

Hi there!

Maybe mirsoft world of game mids is what you are looking for?
http://www.mirsoft.info/gamemids-archive.php

I think that website only offers download full archive zip files and not individual songs.
Here is the midi songs for Doom for example:

The Video Game Music Preservation Foundation also offers downloads of the full song set in one go, but it doesn't restrict itself to MIDI and generally offers the full downloads in the game's original music format. It's a wiki (same software as Wikipedia) so you can look at the MIDI category if you just want to focus on MIDI games, which is a tiny proportion of the number of games on the site.

Being a wiki you can contribute, and I've added a few DOS games to the site myself.

I just started putting up my MIDI archives. I add couple of soundtracks every day, but it takes a hell lot of time, so it's going rather slowly. You can check it out: https://www.karlsitretro.com/game_midi_dos_a/

This looks great, though I don't seem to be able to download any file....

Hover your mouse over the picture. 😀

Great work indeed, Karl!

I did, the image flips and the Download button shows up. Click the Download but nothing downloads. Did it work for you?
