  1. rRPC 2016 - The ReMix Role-Playing Competition 2016

    I found one for the Crystalis track but I did not have any luck finding any midis for Tales of the Abyss or Wild Arms 3's airship themes. I hope that does not become an issue for anyone. Crystalis - http://www.rpgamer.com/games/crystalis/cryst/sounds/midi/crysocen.mid

    I've got YoshiBlade on standby for our 12th participant so depending on what he goes with, I will take you up on that.

    No one else has signed up yet. At this point, I think it would be best to just press on and get the compo rolling. What I'm going to do is pick someone from the undecideds to get the Hero bracket up to six people. If someone wants that spot, feel free to claim it here today, otherwise I'll make the call myself. And during the mixing period of the Hero round 1, I will leave sign ups for the villain side open just in case someone comes along and decides they want in on the action. Of course, if someone new signs up today, then it won't be an issue and we'll be able to proceed without any further concerns. Thanks a lot everyone for signing up and everything you've done to promote the compo to others. Based on the general responses I've seen, it's not so much a lack of interest keeping people from joining in, but a lack of spare time. That sort of thing can't always be helped no matter what you do but I appreciate everyone who took the time to look at the compo, even if they decided to pass on it.

    That's too bad, Sir_NutS, but thanks for checking it out. Ronald Poe, I will always be posting in this thread at the start of every round, as well as when I provide links to download each rounds' submissions. You can click the Follow button at the top of the page across from the thread title to be notified whenever someone posts in this thread (I've not done it myself so I'm not sure if you'll get an email or just a notification when you log into the forums, I'm assuming the latter). Now that the forums are upgraded, I suppose I could also tag everyone in the round in my post just to make sure everyone's been alerted. We just need to get at least one more person over the weekend and we should be in good enough shape to make this work. Are there any other compo regulars we haven't tried reaching out to yet?

    I've been weighing my options on how best to proceed with the current situation. If we can get one more person on board to get the total participants up to 12, we can split everyone between the two brackets evenly. I'm thinking of having round one be three two-person match ups, then round two will be two three-person matches split between whoever won/lost round one, and round three will have the two winners of round two paired up and everyone else will be sorted either in pairs or into a lump group depending on the bracket or if anyone dropped out by this point. The winner of the two-person match up in round three will be a finalist. To simplify my idea, let's say we have in round 1: A vs B, C vs D, and E vs F. A, C, and E all win their rounds so in round 2, A, C, and E will go against each other in a three-way round, while B, D, and F go against each other as well. Now let's say A and F are the winners of round 2, so they will be paired up in round 3 as semi-finalists, while B, C, D, and E get shuffled into pairs or otherwise grouped up depending on which bracket they're in and if all four of them are still able to participate. Now let's say F manages to end A's win streak and then becomes the finalist for F's bracket, F would then go against the opposing bracket's finalist in the last round. It's not a perfect plan and there's a little more to it on my end that I cannot go into without revealing secrets like round source types. I was considering implementing a point system of some kind, but with this approach, the winners and losers of each match up get separated each time so points seem a bit redundant. One of the things I do like about this approach is that it does away with eliminations until the finals, and it gives people who did not win the first round a chance to still come out on top. Also, I do want to clarify, just because I'm grouping up people into three-way match-ups does not mean I'm intending for everyone to have to mix more than two sources a round. I may give you the option to do so depending on the situation, but it won't be a requirement by any means. Let me know if you spot any glaring issues with this approach, or any general concerns. Also, if you've signed up and haven't picked a side yet, there's only room for one more hero if we settle for 12 participants, so if that's relevant to you, you may want to make that claim if you're leaning that way. Also, @Sir_NutS and @Tuberz McGee, if you guys are still interested in joining in, please let me know as soon as possible. If we wind up with an odd number of people on board, I'll have to make one of the round 1 match-ups a three-way, split a three-way match up in round 2 into two pairs, and then have the semi-final match-up be with three people as well (all this for just one of the brackets).

    Yeah, the delay was probably for the best overall. Thanks for the suggestions Mindwanderer, I'll keep those in mind in case it becomes necessary to start without the full roster. If anyone can think of anyone else who might be interested in the compo, feel free to summon them the way Chernabogue did earlier. Some of them seemed interested before but never followed up. Just five more people is all we need to make this happen.
  9. rRPC 2016 - The ReMix Role-Playing Competition 2016

    I have decided that since we did not get enough people to sign up by my original cut off point, I am going to extend the deadline for signing up for the rRPC by another week. Hopefully more people take an interest or decide they have enough time to join in during that period. Sorry for the delay everyone.

    Great to have you on board Yami. I had actually forgotten that Symphony of the Night is an action RPG so I wound up looking that up to make sure it was eligible. I would like you to PM those to me as soon as you can so it's all official and with everyone else's entries. If you have any preference on which bracket you want to be in, let me know there as well. That makes 11 people signed up. Five more openings are left. If you're interested in entering, now is the time to do it.

    I liked it. As much as I do enjoy the interviews with arrangers and composers, it was nice to get a different perspective with this approach. Maybe it's because I can relate to it being a fan of music but not a musician by any stretch of the definition, but I like the idea of just talking about a track or a soundtrack that no one in the interview actually had a hand in making, while still just going into what makes it special or interesting to them. I do think making it shorter and more focused is a good idea, I can see it being the kind of subject that can go off in any number of different tangents that there wouldn't necessarily be time for in the show. Overall, yeah I think it was great, I'm looking forward to the next one!
  12. OverClocked Podcast - 21 - TotalBiscuit

    I enjoyed the new episode guys! I like that you're branching out with different types of interviews, adds the right amount of variety to the format of the show. The One-Winged Angel arrangement I submitted in the playlist is even more impressive when you watch the video and see the percussionist in action. The rest of the Symphonic Fantasies encore that plays before it is worth listening to as well.
  13. rRPC 2016 - The ReMix Role-Playing Competition 2016

    Dawn of the Final Day. Today is the last day of my intended sign up period for the rRPC. Still at six open slots including Mike's entry though he hasn't messaged me with it yet. For anyone who has been following along but have not made up your mind yet, today would be the day to do it. The compo would definitely work best with the full roster of 16, but I do think it's feasible to pull off with 12 or 14 depending on how everyone's divided up. With 12 people split evenly between both sides (6 heroes and 6 villains), round 1 would then be a series of 3-way match ups with the lowest scoring participant dropped before round 2. In this case, I would provide the villains with a source from my list of possible party members so that we don't run the risk of rounds 1 and 2 being the same combination of themes remixed both times. I suppose you could also incorporate one of your opponents' character themes as well, but that would be optional. With 14 people, I would need one of the brackets to be filled up and that bracket would then proceed as I had originally planned. Then whichever bracket is two members short will be set up like I described in the 12 person scenario. If the villains are low, I'll provide sources for round 1. My biggest concern about doing 3-way match ups is what to do in the event of a second place tie. I wouldn't want to settle something like that with something completely random like flipping a coin or rolling a die. I suppose all three could advance to round 2 and make that be a double-elimination round, plus we get a little more music going that route. I'm mostly just thinking out loud here and I would appreciate any input you have on the situation. There could be something I'm overlooking, or maybe you would rather delay things another week to give more people a chance to sign up and fill out the roster. I want to have a full roster and I'm definitely willing to extend the sign up period, but I also want to do what works best for everyone. At any rate, if you've been on the fence about signing up, today would be the day to make your move. Just be sure to follow the sign up instructions in the opening post and PM your picks to me.
  14. rRPC 2016 - The ReMix Role-Playing Competition 2016

    Great to have you on board @Supercoolmike. Just be sure to send that to me via PM in order to make it official.
  15. rRPC 2016 - The ReMix Role-Playing Competition 2016

    Sorry to hear that Anorax. Your characters wouldn't have to be anyone even remotely obscure or anything you know. Surely you've had some experience with at least one Final Fantasy? If you're absolutely sure you're out, thank you for considering entering and I hope you follow along. So we've got two more days left for my intended sign-up period. Right now we've got five heroes (Garpocalypse, Touchstone, Ghetto Lee Lewis, Xenonetix, and alfredofreak), two villains (Timothy William and Ronald Poe), and two undecideds (Chernabogue and HoboKa). Over halfway to a full roster so I'm feeling pretty good about that. We'll see how things go over the weekend. Ideally we'll get enough last minute people to fill out the roster and everything can proceed as planned.
