MOTHER 1+2

September 23rd, 2012 | Audio Stuff, MOTHER 1+2, MOTHER 3 | 58 Comments

The other day I posted about some hacking progress with the MOTHER 1+2 and MOTHER 3 music formats (see here). The problem with the GBA music (particularly MOTHER 3) is that the hardware limitations produced a sort of soft “fuzz”. But now you can play the music on your computer without that fuzz! For example, here’s the Love Theme from MOTHER 3, as it sounds on the GBA: Audio clip...Read More »

A few months ago Bregalad released a utility called GBAMusRiper that rips the music from many GBA games into MIDI format with accompanying sound font files. Apparently it even works with MOTHER 1+2, but only the MOTHER 2 side. And it works with MOTHER 3 too – apparently to the point that a hacker by the name of LuigiBlood was able to do some basic music insertion. Here’s a sample: And...Read More »

 

July 9th, 2012 | MOTHER 1+2, MOTHER 3, Rumors | 7 Comments

I was browsing Starmen.Net’s archives from 10 years ago this month and realized that it was about 10 years ago exactly that the first rumors about the MOTHER 1+2 port and the MOTHER 3 GBA release started to leak out. Here’s the first one we heard of, posted on July 3, 2002. It’s from the old Japanese “Famitsu Cube” magazine: Miss Rumor: I’ve heard that one game...Read More »

The other day girl034 sent this to me: Dear Mato, Yesterday I found an article about “Mother 1+2″‘s release in a german magazine called “Gamepro”. (the magazine is from 2003) It also claims that Mother3 will soon be coming out. I hope you haven’t gotten any messages about that yet. Greetings. I’m not sure what it says, but it looks short enough that it...Read More »

I’ve caught a few Classic Game Room videos in the past, and it looks like there’s a new MOTHER 1+2 review video up, posted a few days ago: If you’re a regular visitor here this probably isn’t anything new to you, I just like that MOTHER 1+2 is getting attention, I feel like it’s often overlooked. It’s a shame it never got released outside of Japan, that would&#...Read More »

I’m super-sleepy and full of Dr Pepper (possibly related?) so I’ll keep this update quick – I’m selling a rare Saturn Valley Express newspaper flier and a rare MOTHER 1 novel advertisement! The MOTHER 1 novel ad is for the reprint they did in 2003 to coincide with MOTHER 1+2’s release. I think it might even be the first one to ever appear on eBay, but don’t quo...Read More »

Last week I posted some neat MOTHER 2-related swag on eBay, and this week I’m listing something even more epic: a copy of MOTHER 1+2 signed by none other than MOTHER/EarthBound series creator Shigesato Itoi himself! I’m also including a bunch of other really rare items from the official MOTHER 1+2 event held in 2003, check it all out here! Here’s Itoi signing boxes prior to the ...Read More »

A long while back I posted a GSF archive that included all the music from MOTHER 1+2. Courtesy of MaxOfS2D, here’s an MP3 archive of all the music from the MOTHER 2 portion of MOTHER 1+2: MOTHER 2 GBA MP3 archive (159 MB) Honestly, there’s no real point in downloading this – I highly recommend getting the Super NES EarthBound MP3 archive off of Starmen.Net here instead. The GBA...Read More »

Years ago I went on a hunt for all sorts of EarthBound/MOTHER-related videos to add to the Starmen.Net YouTube page. One thing I managed to miraculously uncover was raw footage of the MOTHER 1+2 release party in 2003. It’s only of the talk show portion of the event (most of which I already translated here), but if you want to see the whole thing, here you go! Part 1: Part 2: It’s a...Read More »

For a while now, I’ve wanted to make MP3 rips of the MOTHER 1+2 music – mostly just because it’d be nice to have around sometimes, usually to show people the difference between the original games’ music and the GBA ports’. Some GSF archives exist, which you can get here: MOTHER 1 GSF archive MOTHER 2 GSF archive GSF files are basically the GBA equivalent of SPC file...Read More »
