I've been playing through a custom mission for , an old 6DoF shooter from the 90s. The mission contains custom MIDI music, with a few tracks written by members of the game's community, and the rest supposedly pulled from other games, according to those members.

No one, not even the mission's author, can remember which games, but I have those MIDI files, and can share them as part of an identification question. Is this too much of a stretch for this site's restrictions on Game Identification? I have no real proof that the MIDI files are from other games, aside from someone's words.

Link to main site question that this meta was raised for: Where are these two video game songs from?

  • @TimmyJim it does clear things up, but I mostly wanted to make sure on the distinction of potential misinformation that they're game songs Commented Nov 9, 2022 at 3:05

    I updated the title to be what I think is more appropriate so its easier to find/use for future reference. I think this is what is being asked here if I'm not mistaken

This is within the tag scope.

As all media can only actually be verified after identification, the fact that—despite claims to the contrary—these MIDI files may not actually have been pulled from other games should not be an obstacle.

We've had questions for games that were merely props (see examples below): it takes an informed answer to point that out.
