Wow I just found out about this project. I had vaguely remember hearing about a MMX project, but I didn't realize it was this far along or this large in scope. I listened to the previews and they sound pretty awesome! Can't wait to hear the whole thing!

Dyne

Emunator, if I recall properly, I believe I sent them to melody. But I haven't seen him lately, so we'll have to try to get together with him ASAP.

It's probably worth mentioning that the website is the #1 result on Google search. It's almost like the project has been released except none of the links work (obviously)

EDIT: I mean worth mentioning in that you guys could take it down or password protect it or what have you :-)

I have some tracks to master but not nearly enough,

It seems people either haven't gotten the mass PM that was sent or are dragging their feet.

I got some from Dominic Ninmark that I have yet to get to, but after this weekend I will have 0 calls on my time and I think I've gotten to the point where I can play Terraria in moderation

Brandon Strader

Is this the first album ever to have sextuple coordinators? :-o

Emunator
06-17-2011, 04:29 PM
Sixto and Cyril aren't really coordinating, per se. More just producing, for the most part, and a little bit of consulting. I'm not even sure if melody/myself are actual codirectors anyway, but even if we were, we'd just be on par with Echoes of Betrayal in terms of staff count :-)

Dyne
06-24-2011, 03:04 AM
The project is still going strong. Things are winding down in a timely fashion, and hopefully with some luck we'll have everything sent to the evaluation panel soon. Bear with us, we're working as hard as we can (at least Emu, sixto and cyril are!).

The biggest obstacle right now is mastering the album since we've had to master several tracks.

That's all I have for you for now.

Am I wrong in saying that everything is already done?

Or is there still a ton to master? Just want to get a feel for where you all are. From the looks of the front page, it seems as if everything has pretty much been wrapped up.

Emunator
07-09-2011, 08:05 PM
We've got final WAVs for pretty much everything, but a lot of them are unmastered so we need some help there. I had a few people on board helping but I'm not really sure if any of them are gonna come through anytime soon, so I may be looking around for more help.

We've also got a few executive decisions that need to be made about which tracks to cut that still aren't finished, and what to do with the GRMB songs that haven't seen any updates since the competition.

So, tl;dr - we've got all the pieces there to make a finished product but we're lacking the dedicated people that we need to make the rest of it happen though :\

Brandon Strader

The reason I don't have everything mastered already is because of snags. And because some are "unmastered" but are actually brickwalled and crap already. :-|

(guys, lets get the ready for when Bahamut gets back from boot camp!)

You can help us accomplish this goal by getting me your damn track writeup for the Plaid Muffins song and getting in touch with Hemo to get the same from him :-D

Things are really coming along behind the scenes, I don't see any reason we won't be able to wrap this up by the end of the month if everybody cooperates. I'll be sending out another wave of PM's ASAP for those of you still missing stuff!

DJ SymBiotiX
07-21-2011, 09:43 PM
IS there anywhere with a complete list of who still needs to submit what?

Emunator
07-21-2011, 10:08 PM
Yeah, I can post one real quick. I've already messaged all these people individually (some multiple times) but I suppose crowdsourcing might get things done quicker :-)

Tracks that do not have a final WAV (or we're not sure whether or not the one you sent us was mastered... i.e. I never got a response from you)

Demonstray x2 (tracks will likely be dropped due to extended periods of no contact, never received WAVs for either track)
Gario (Crystal Crow Crusher)
Krow (Deep Sea Harmony)
zykO (Hunter) [track will probably be dropped due to a hard drive crash and the fact that a wav was never produced]

Content Policy Agreements

cyril the wolf
gario
krow

Track Writeups (these are optional but we'd like to get a statement from every artist about their tracks for the website)

Level 99 (on behalf of the Overclocked Plaid Muffins)
Cyril the Wolf x5
Krow x2
Gario x3
Hemophiliac
BlackPanther
Ergosonic
ZykO
Jewbei
sixto

and anyone who did bonus tracks.



So yeah, that's pretty much what we're waiting on, in addition to the mastering of about a dozen tracks. If you are on this list for anything that means that, whether you sent it to Bahamut, Dyne, me, or whoever, I don't have something from you so you need to get in touch. The sooner we get this list cleared up, the sooner I can start encoding/tagging these sumbishes. If it goes too long and we still don't get content policy agreements/final wavs, we'll just start dropping tracks, I don't think anyone has a problem with that if it means keeping the momentum and getting this ready by the time Wes comes home.

Let's go!!

I am eagerly awaiting this album. The previews have sounded great, can't wait!

Gario
07-22-2011, 01:02 AM
Y'know, I could've swore I sent in the tracks twice and the writeups at least once. I'll send in another set though in a bit. I've also given the policy statements before, I'm sure, but... well, that might've been for another project. If they need to be in response to a specific form then please send them again.

I know that all my tracks I sent in were mastered, so if it's a matter of you not having them then... well, that'd suck. If you have a WAV of my track then it's the mastered version (as mastered as it's getting - I went over it once already for this and don't want to revisit it a second time).

I will send Dyne everything in the list again, though, so I suppose this is a non-issue.

Brandon Strader
07-22-2011, 01:12 AM
As someone involved in this project with some of my best work, I am very, very appreciative of Emunator and co taking initiative to find all the pieces and put them together. This album is waaay overdue. Thanks guys. :-)

Emunator
07-22-2011, 01:50 AM
Yeah, Gario it's likely that you probably did send that all in, but the organization on this project has been a mess and a half. I'm really trying to keep my head on straight as I try to track down everything that was sent to various people. I very much appreciate your patience, especially if you've already sent your stuff in.

I think the only one we're missing is a WAV for Crystal Crow Crusher, but I can ask around and do some digging to see if maybe I just made a clerical mistake when updating the Doc that we're keeping everything on. If you have it though, it'd be easier to just send it again and skip the long, drawn-out search :-)

This project is MASSIVE. Even when all of the songs are done, I get the feeling the post-music logistics of this thing are going to take ages. It took several months after the last song was complete to push Summoning of Spirits out the door, and there wasn't even an album queue at that time.

We've actually got everything mastered, the project is pretty much done now on the music side of things. I just need to pick up the last 3 WAVs from Cyril that he's mastered and then I can formulate a tentative release package to submit for evaluation. I'll probably hold off until Bahamut returns from boot camp though, so he can put his seal of approval on it.

But yeah, things are good :-) This project's almost done.

Emunator
08-11-2011, 09:36 PM
That's it :-) We've now got a WAV for every song on the project, mastered and encoded as an MP3. However, since Baha still isn't back yet and he obviously needs to hear the final product before it's shipped to evaluation, I've decided to allow the next 2 weeks for any fixes to be made.

If you wish to make any changes to your final WAV for this project, it must be done in the next 2 weeks or you're out of luck! Spread the word, we're moving on after that!!

EDIT: MP3 semi-final pre-eval packages are being sent out right now, please check at LEAST your own songs and make sure they're the correct version and that you're happy with it! These next 2 weeks are your chance to speak up if you're not happy with anything before it goes into eval! Hope you all enjoy!

Some tracks got some excellent updates & there's a few more tracks than originally planned before I left for boot camp. You'll all love the album once it makes it past eval for release!

Indeed, it feels great to be back! Although using a computer again is still a bit of foreign territory to me...

But man, the album is sounding even better with the mastered tracks! It's so tempting to let everyone hear it but then that'd be no fun without an official release :razz: . You all got a taste of Washudoll's Boomer Kuwanger track in that little preview DrewGourley posted, but little do you all know that the album as a whole is quite breathtaking and dare I say different from what might be expected.

I listened to a couple so far, and I found at least 2 that can't be the finished version because they end up just so abrupt. "Vile needs to galvanize" and "I am the one who designed and built Megaman".
But the songs are so much solid and good sounding. Congrats to everyone, you made something epic.

Yup yup, these are both encoding errors and I'm aware of them, they'll be fixed in the final package :-) Good ear though!

there is a lot of very hard rocking going on throughout the discs, no question about it. i have some new heroes. aside from the abrupt cutoffs that are already known and, unfortunately, my two tracks that sound like they live in a can (my apologies for my-half-assed showing), this album sounds all manners of RAWK STRONG. maybe strongest project yet? i dunno but it'll be close.

everyone involved in all aspects of this album should be very proud of forging a quality product. the rest of you better start saving some of that drool eekin' out yo moufs for when this drops ;)

Man I can't wait until the end of October so I can hear the 100% final product (I'm stuck out by Camp Lejeune for infantry training - been sleeping out in the field for the past week while doing fun stuff like firing an M16A4 at night, throwing hand grenades, and firing a rocket & grenade launcher).

I'm happy with the final priduct though - we got a kickass album on our hands that is sure to rock your world! There is a lot of great work done by everyone, so much thanks to all for bearing with me & Emunator, who also deserves much credit, as well as my greatest appreciation, for being able to pick up with what I have not been in the position to do. Like zyko, I'm going to make the bold claim that it is one of the strongest albums to come from the community yet, but I'll let you all be the judge of that when it hits :) .

It's possible to have quality AND quantity, I think MMX proved that -- It also has a lot of diversity, but the definitive MegaMan sound is intact with each song, that is to say the remixes were done well, they fit amongst each other. :-)

Nope. I'm not sure how much liberty I have to talk about upcoming releases (not because we want to keep that info private, necessarily, but just because it's so tentative and we don't want to give anybody false hope about a project releasing earlier than we can actually get it out) but DKC3 is definitely not coming out before Maverick Rising.

Heh, albums are usually done audio-wise way ahead of release. NiGHTS was done nearly 8 months before the album came out. With the current amount of albums lined up for release (there are at least three or four that got in before Maverick Rising was turned in for album eval), we generally don't give timelines on where things are in the process. Some times are better than others for staff to attend to things, just because real life is unexpected. Rather than give people the impression that something is imminent*, these things are kept private for the benefit of both OCR and the fans/consumers.

That being said, this is probably the current top priority album for album eval. The size of it makes it quite difficult to tackle but it is being chipped away at. Even if this is likely to wait until early next year to post, what a better way to potentially kick off the year, right? There's still plenty in the pipeline for the rest of '11, too.

*exception being when albums have specified release dates as part of their scope, scheduled to coincide with some special date.

SuperiorX
09-20-2011, 12:57 AM
Yeah I know these things take time, and it's not like anyone is getting paid to create/evaluate these things, so we don't really have any room to complain. I just meant it would be nice if there was a fluid thread that listed the album queue as it stood at that time, with an expected release window (a few months give or take?).

It's not like I would get mad and rage over a release date being "missed", but I could see where some people might get upset... I just want to know what's coming up down the line :mrgreen:

It's always hard to say with release dates - as noted, many factors go into a release of an album. I'm glad that the most tentative stuff is taken care of already, which is allowing me to refocus on Lufia 2 :) .

But yeah, a fluid thread would be no good as some releases are meant to be kept secret until they're out by director intention. The best I can give is an informal estimate based on my knowledge. I do want to see this out asap though, the wait has been too long!

That's really nice to hear! I've loved the X series ever since I first played it. (After trying to understand Megaman Zero's plot without playing the X series...:oops: )

I just saw a thread about this on a forum I go to. A shame that Xtreme 1 & 2 aren't represented, especially considering I figured MHX was just a remake of the original with remixed music. Never actually played it since I didn't have a PSP.

It pretty much is, with the capsules moved around. You can play as Vile though once you beat the game.

In fact, Vile's opening stage theme has a remix here courtesy of zyko.

You mean zyko.

Also, Mega Man Xtreme 1 & 2 are just chiptune versions of the music from X1 - 3.

So it has been a little while since you guys got to hear of anything going on really - we do have a release period in mind, although the date we were planning for originally ended up getting pushed back due to staff considerations on album order to release. I do have a nice goodie for you all to eat up though!

They aren't giving specific answers. I'm going to guess a few months. I could be wrong, but I'm hoping to see something by Feb. If not, then, well, we'll just have to wait longer.

I'm not going to give specifics because it's disappointing when timeframes aren't met - I originally meant for this album to come out almost a year ago but part of its delay has been due to OCR staff wanting to insert albums beforehand and then lack of management when I was gone although I had set a plan, exactly everything that was needed for release, etc. I hate sitting on the music the most.

So just let it go people (not a specific towards MrFX) - things didn't happen as I had intended to, and so the album didn't get released when it was supposed to. Enjoy the albums as they come, we're about to see Wild ARMS come out, so there'll be plenty of music for you all to enjoy on the site.

MrFX
12-19-2011, 01:02 AM
Oh, yeah, it's fine. I'm not holding anybody to anything...I know that stuff happens, and I completely understand why you guys aren't giving a date.

I've been tracking this for a while, but don't think I'm being nasty about it or anything. I'm just REALLY looking forward to this.

Runs slow, and you can buy the weapons with real cash. It's really not that faithful of a port at all.

You're always better "running a SNES port and playing the original". It is very rare that you get the high quality redo job like Maverick Hunter X, so safest bet...always emulate.

Mirby

Here's the thing; the iOS remake isn't a port of the SNES version; it's a port of an older mobile remake that also ran crappily. Yeah, the graphics and stuff were touched up, but the problems were at the core.

Gario
12-26-2011, 03:30 PM
"The purchase can wait, emulate!"

On topic, that game just crucifies Megaman X. The graphics are awful, the backstory is wholly unnecessary, the whole 'shop' aspect... Damn, how could they get MMX so wrong?

I really hope that isnt the final logo for the album cover. Don't get me wrong, the artwork is absolutely stunning. Like truly blow you away incredible. But the logo looks like it was thrown together quickly in photoshop with gradients and strokes added solely so there was more stuff going on. It doesnt suit the otherwise excellent cover.

It is the final logo - you know, I was a bit iffy at first with the logo, but I like it a lot. I think it works pretty well, gives off an edgy, futuristic feel to it that exudes some grit.
