After careful consideration, Uncle Strobe have decided to disqualify this entry until it have been salvaged and repaired.
I did though make some attempts to build a ROM, and I got a new VGM down to 1MB with very Little loss of actual fidelity, but as of this time the DefleMask ROM builder fails completely, even with ZERO samples, the ROM shoots up at almost 1 MB, for unknown reasons.
To be clear here, I don't Think it is the "sample abuse" at the moment that completely wrecks this song, since all channels allows for PCM streaming, and even adding just 1 short sample breaks the ROM builder.
There will be a new version of an optimized VGM coming up
Before the compo ends, or a working HES, which will be far less
in size than the current one. (I got lazy and did no optimization on the original submission, it really does not have to be 5MB at all). :P
