Hello there!

Can anyone tell me on which website the game was originally released as I want to get the older versions of the game using archive.org.

Thanks!

There might be some hidden in some lost or hidden places on the internet. But that's not really what I asked for anyway, I asked for the website on which the game was first released.

Oh right, it went by another name that i cannot remember. It had studiopixel in it, though. It's the same website, though.

EDIT: Oh hey, it's in the cave story readme http://hp.vector.co.jp/authors/VA022293/

Thanks again! I went on the website using archive.org and Cave Story didn't seem to have been released on the 20 december 2004. There's an archive version of the website on the 29 december 2004 stating that Pixel is looking for beta testers for the game and there doesn't seem to be any download links.

EDIT: Here the webpage: https://web.archive.org/web/20041229180415/http://hp.vector.co.jp/authors/VA022293/

EDIT 2: Nevermind, the webpage wasn't updated correctly.

Does anyone have any ideas on what 'PixReadSMF' might have been?

Okay but does anyone know what SMF was? Andwhyisit?

Anyway, the oldest available version from archived websites that me rain and Andwhyisit have found is still only 1.0.0.5.
I'm sure 1.0.0.0 was released, if you looked long and hard you might be able to find a copy, but 1st part sources are dry. You would have to go to someone who downloaded it from back then. Naoku would probably have one... but then again Naoku also probably have Beta Cave Story, so.

インターフェースも悪いし、ほとんどのMIDIファイルは読めないと思います。
