Exactly. And OpenTTD is not TTD. Do you own the rights to distribute the game? Did you buy that from Chris Sawyer? Or in this case from the composer(s) and performer(s)? Otherwise any distribution of their content is plain that: a copyright violation which you became liable of and which we would become liable of as well, if we allow that violation to persist. Your thoughtless behaviour thus not only puts you into risk to receive a cease and desist order but also us who take care about the game and these forums.

If you didn't make it yourself, then it is 3rd party. Unless you explicitly have a license to re-distribute it, then doing violates the law in nearly every country of the globe. The entire reason for the OpenMSX project is so that we could replace the original TTD music with a set of music that was created by people who willingly agree to have their work redistributed.

maybe you can ask chris sawyer if OpenTTD can use the original TTD files

Considering he's still using them in Transport Tycoon for iOS and Android, I doubt he would be interested in a competitor using them. Plus, by law we would have to pay royalty fees and performance fees. OpenTTD doesn't have that kind of cash laying around for a free game.

Are contributions still being accepted for OpenMSX? I may have a few compositions in MIDI for this project.

Also, I'm considering improving some of the percussion lines for some of the tracks. I believe this is acceptable under the license the tracks were made and released under, though I only really wanted to modify the tracks made in the community, as there isn't much of a point modifying tracks that would get replaced eventually.

Feel free to post what you have. The more community-contributed content, the better!

Not at all a fan of the percussion line as it stands on Modern Motion. The Snare Drum being played on eighth notes constantly overpowers the mix, and there really isn't too many fills as how a real Drum Kit player would add to a piece.

Here is my version as it stands. Still working on it, can't figure out a decent ending for it. Also, still contemplating the mid-section, which I currently have as a shuffle of sorts, but it might be too busy. I dunno, here it is.

Original author here (after many years away!). I wrote that song in high school and the midi version is actually an automated conversion from the original FL Studio file. Needless to say, a lot of the percussion came out differently and I never fixed it because I figured it sounded okay and I wanted to make a contribution to the project. That said, my musical skills have not really improved in the last decade, so you have my full blessing to make whatever improvements you want to my track :). The one you posted is already a big improvment. Thanks!

[Base Music] OpenMSX v0.3.2

I noticed the MIDI data for all of the songs in OpenMSX have unoptimized data in them. Like the error found in tttheme2.mid the track with the jazz guitar in it is supposed to be channel 8 not 6, that I fixed. I decided to do this to help reduce file size. During this process, I realized during this MIDI editing process that Trolley Trev's 'Keep on Rolling' now plays correctly, so like "Replace 'Big Man Boogie' with fixed version of 'Keep on Rolling' (fixed by Devan Wolf)" (Also changed source download link in readme file)

Please support my 0.3.2 release to public! (Otherwise redundant MIDI data is sent when people use the old 0.3.1!)

Thanks for the fixed files! OpenMSX is now hosted on GitHub here - if you're able to clone the repository and submit a pull request, that's probably the easiest way of getting your changes in. If necessary then I'm sure somebody could volunteer to do that on your behalf, but if you can give it a shot, that would be best.

Could you check all the rest of the files to ensure that they are also optimized?

One more update to the 0.3.2 release of OpenMSX. I finally used Trolley Trev's revision 3 of Keep on Rolling and optimized it too!

Oh, and the pull request for releasing 0.3.2 is still available here.
