Yeah I noticed that after the last SNDH release.
It’s fixed in the next release
Whenever that is!

I didn't know this but Bangkok Knights is a C64 martial arts game - a Rob Hubbard conversion.
The version in the SNDH archive sounds more grungy.

The nice version is featured in the 3D Doc demo from the Carebears Cuddly Demos:

I think that the version used in the 3D Doc demo should be added to that directory and the other version could be put in the C64 Conversions directory.
Still got, still working: Atari 4Mb STe, 520STFM, 2.5Mb STF.
Hardware: Cumana CSA 354, Ultimate Ripper, Blitz Turbo, Synchro Express II (US and UK Versions).

Note that this music first appeared in an old 1988 Hofa cracktro (for example the one for "Vixen"), using an older replay code from Mad Max :

Hofa later became "The Replicants"
(and I remember listening to this music for hours with the volume of my CRT monitor turned to the max :) )

I hate being pedantic, but the main game tune is indeed by Rob Hubbard - that tune is used in TCB's Starwars Scoller demo. But the bangkok knights loader tune on the C64 was composed by Matt Gray. It seems the main game one is duplicated in the sndh archive.

*edit* and although generally I prefer the ST's chip music to the C64 (I know, I know), the original sid version is, well, this : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJA2nLLPVi8

Sorry to double-post, but on the back of that I'd never noticed until just now that in the So Watt demo folder, there's a 'Main menu' tune. My copy of that demo was silent on the screen selection, and the images I've seen on emulator are the same.
Anyone know where this tune is if it is in the So Watt demo, and where it's from originally?

*edit*
Oh and the nordik coders tune is actually in the 'no crew' demo screen.. the music from the nordik coders screen is by An Cool (called A.N. Bass - and it doesn't playback properly - on of the channels goes out of sync)... Ok, I'll get my coat.
