10-13-2016 (10.4.1) : Duke Nukem 3D "World Tour" Edition compared to the original(s)

Thanks to Lee Jackson Audio Community on Facebook, I discovered that a new edition of Duke Nukem 3D, "20th Anniversary World Tour", has been released on PC (Steam), Xbox One and PlayStation 4 two days ago, featuring a whole new episode, and new music composed by Lee Jackson himself.

Then, I found this YouTube video, comparing the original edition from 1996, the "Megaton Edition" from 2013, and this new "World Tour" edition from 2016. And I discovered that ALL the music tracks bundled within the Megaton Edition were actually remastered OGG versions of the original MIDI files... recorded with Arachno SoundFont!

However, I never got any notification about this. So, I never knew that my SoundFont had been used this way for over one year... and so, indirectly sold on Steam by the way. Not to mention that the OGG files didn't even come with any credit information mentioning that they had been recorded with my sounds.

Now that this Megaton edition has been withdrawn from the Steam stores (to avoid cannibalizing sales of the new World Tour edition), I wish I didn't learn this fact this way. But I'll always be happy to notice that my Arachno SoundFont bank can be even more popular that I may already know!
