Mega Man 9: Back in Blue - History
 
ATTENTION FANS!
Project is currently in evaluation.
Old website is down. We probably wont have a new website until release of the project.

Teasers can be found here:

OLD NEWS POSTS BELOW-------------------------------------
ATTENTION MIXERS
It's looking like we're going to shoot for a May release date, Basically that turns it into crunch time - 3 months away, I've already talked with a few of you to discuss this and make sure you can commit, but I'll be getting with more of you to make sure you guys are up for it and that everyone is on board.


PROJECT WEBSITE: http://kwix.shackspace.com/mm9
CURRENT MIXER LIST: http://kwix.shackspace.com/mm9/mixers.html
CURRENT PROJECT STATUS: gaining mixers & finalizing a solid release date.

UPDATE - 2.3.10
Hey guys. Thanks for offering to take as many tracks as you did, Plug Electric, Flash in the Dark, and Wily Machine are now well covered in my opinion, perhaps even too much so... if such a thing we're possible. I've got some great news to share with you all, Newcomer Ralph Vickers has been accepted onto the project and Sixto has decided to make a comeback!! The project is looking up and if things go well I will have a release date planned soon!

IMPORTANT #1
Additionally, Is anyone willing to help Corran out with an Acoustic Guitar bit? I know we have TONS of guitarists in the community, is anyone capable or willing to lend him a hand?

IMPORTANT #2
I gave the naming idea a good few spins in my head, decided on how I felt about some of the offered suggestions and decided that, yes - the project will have a fancy name, and that name will be Back in Blue. Thanks Author :)

UPDATE - 11.5.09
Well i suppose it was inevitable. Things we're just going too good. It looks like some unfortunate circumstances have lead to Sixto Sounds & Nekofrog leaving the project. Sixto had a hard drive crash which is always a big pain to deal with, from what I gather he lost quite a bit, including all the project details he was working on. This also means I need to do a bit more recruitment. A few really good songs have opened up so I'll be trying to get a hold of some new mixers. This means if you want one of the new open tracks you should get in touch with me!

The tracks that have opened up are the following:
Plug Electric: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4kM-9qEe9lM
Flash in the Dark (Wily1): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ltslPAxbUsU
Castle of Evil: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6VwbyYjLZE

All of these are *amazing* tracks and I'd really like to have them covered, so if you were looking for a track but didn't see anything you liked before, please give these a listen and let me know if you'd like to take a stab at covering them.

Additionally, this also means our December release date probably isn't going to happen. I'll keep you guys posted and we'll see who i can get to take the tracks. Honestly I'd really like to have 1 more awesome guitar track on the project, but I'm willing to try anything!

--------------------------------------------------
UPDATE - 9.1.09
So guys.. Sup? Lets play a game of good news & bad news. Which one you want first? ..good news? okay.

The good news.. is that I set a September 1st Due date, its here, and the mixers have delivered. Oh man, they have definitely delivered. Not everyone is finished, but i definitely have some killer tracks. It gets even better though, I teased a bit that I might be dropping a second preview teaser.. and it looks like im going to come through for you all.

http://kwix.shackspace.com/mm9/teaser1.jpg
http://kwix.shackspace.com/mm9/mix/mm9teaser2.mp3

Now the bad news, sorry.

I'm at the point in the project where i need to figure out when to release, and basing that on my mixers progress and how the projects are going and on some sage wisdom from Pretzel himself, it looks like we're setting a release month of December. Probably about December 15th. I know it seems far away, but remember.. it's already September.

For the mixers, expect 1 more serious WIP deadline, followed by a release deadline, anyone who doesn't have something for me by the next deadline will *probably* be kicked off the project, unless they can commit to the final deadline and have a great excuse. The next deadline will be around Halloween.


UPDATE - 5.30.09
Alright everyone. Now that we have our mixers setup, most have started at the very least working on the tracks, it's time for another due date. This one is going to be a bit more serious then the last one. We're looking to have most tracks finalized by September 1st. Thats a good 3 months away at this point in time, so it gives everyone plenty of time to get stuff together and get something to me.

Assuming all goes according to plan, we will be looking at releasing the project some time shortly after that, If we do fall behind again, expect something like a December release, but it is definitely my goal to have things finished by the end of the year. Thanks for all the support guys ^_^

UPDATE - 5.20.09
Hey guys, just wanted to let you all know that we opened up the artwork section with some teaser art. We're about 50% done with the project, got another WIP-date to go, and then a release date. Thanks for all the support and hard work, thanks everyone!!

UPDATE - 4.20.09
Teaser is out!!!! let us know what you all think!

UPDATE - 4.15.09
Hey guys, just letting you know that i'm going to delay the teaser date by just a few days to give everyone a chance to polish things up and give a few late mixers a chance to get their stuff to me. Thanks everyone for contributing and I hope I have a few more songs in my WIP folder soon!

UPDATE - 4.7.09
Hey everyone, just wanted to let you guys know that so far i have a few WIPS and things are going smoothly. I'm still hunting for artists to do some of the artwork, but other then that we are pretty much solid. To the mixers, please get me your WIPS before the 15th if you want your song to be featured somehow in the teaser, the sooner the better. I'll be handing out some PMs just to make sure everyone is aware of whats going on.

Also, I'm planning on switching to this thread for the official forums of the website, as the current forums had a lot of problems and don't see much activity, plus everyone is already registered here, so it should just be easier in general. We got one week left until the teaser comes out, so assuming i get a few more tracks, i'll see you all then.

ORIGINAL POST
Hey all - I don't make a lot of posts these days and I honestly haven't been active in the community for quite awhile, but that's about to change in a big way.

I come today to announce my 2nd official project.

http://kwix.shackspace.com/mm9/logo2.jpg

Thats right, It's Megaman 9. I've already started recruiting mixers and artists with the hopes of having the project completed at the very latest by the end of the year. I'm making this post to give you guys a heads up and invite you all to come check out the website and the project. We plan on covering about 27 tracks or so and maybe even some bonus tracks if this gets as big as i think it will get. In addition to the music, i also plan on offering a large artwork section with a few of my favorite artists from the community already contributing. Much like my previous project, there are no style requirements, Any musical style goes.

That being said, we still need some more help - Another purpose of this post is to officially start open recruitment for mixers and artists to help contribute to the project. I'm pretty open and if you would like to help then please drop me a line - There are no upfront requirements for being considered, I only want 1 track of your work to be considered for the project. You can contact me via PM, or on the projects official forums.

If mixing isn't your thing and you still want to contribute, im still looking for artists of all styles. I'd like to see at least 1 piece of work before i allow you to contribute to the project.

If you want to see who is already involved or who is covering what tracks, then please check out the website! everything is there! Thanks for reading guys and i'll be posting teasers in the coming weeks so be prepared :) This game is awesome and I'm thrilled to have a shot to pay tribute to the game that dared to be 2d with an industry so focused on the graphics. I can't do it alone though - I need a few more mixers and a few more artists before things can really start moving. Hope to have your help and support.

-Dusty

Well, that was fast :-D.

Ferret 01-28-2009 08:18 PM

What, already? What about Mega Mans 1 through 8? And Rockman & Forte (Mega Man & Bass on the GBA)?

What about Battle and Chase?

What about Mega Man Soccer?

WHAT ABOUT THE CHILDREN?!

Fishy 01-28-2009 08:19 PM

Must... resist... joining... moooar...... projects......

No, I can't do it. pm'd.

Torzelan 01-28-2009 08:31 PM

Makes me sad I have no actual track to send as reference. : ( Would've been cool.
Good luck to you all!

PROTO·DOME 01-28-2009 09:02 PM

Awww! Opening one's been taken. Ah well...

Zephyr 01-28-2009 09:14 PM

I love this game, I love this music, do a good job, no, a GREAT job. Quality control should work night shifts, and 24/7 hours. I look forward to its completion.

XZero 01-28-2009 09:20 PM

As a person who was very disappointed with the oveall quality of the arrangements found in the official Mega Man 9 Arranged album, I cannot wait to hear what the *real* pros can conjure up.

WillRock 01-28-2009 09:21 PM

Haha this sounds awesome, I PM'd

SwordBreaker 01-28-2009 11:03 PM

Nice project there. I see a lot of talented guitarists on board. Good luck, everyone.

Agreed on the most part:

Wily Machine had so much fucking potential, and then they just drop the ball. So many times you think it will pick up and be all guitar kickass and it fades back to boring.

Hemophiliac 01-28-2009 11:34 PM

Well, i started a splash woman remix recently, but i see that's already taken...

I do have interest in Galaxy Man's stage, however; i see nothing about deadlines anywhere. If you could give me a better idea about timelines/deadlines i might be inclined to join.

Sensai 01-28-2009 11:46 PM

Man, that certainly was quick.

I wish you the best of luck and will be following the progress religiously.

Praise be to Protoman.

(Also, I'm kinda surprised there hasn't ever been a project for MM2 or 3...or I guess any of the MM games. What gives?)

Hemophiliac 01-28-2009 11:57 PM

MM4 happened, but it went to that place where projects go when they kinda die. (it's on life support right now)

Corran 01-29-2009 01:07 AM

Hey K-wix,

I was just going to mention that while I might not be so active on the forums this time around due to a hectic life right now, I'll be around as much as possible and of course will make all deadlines. I'm working on it right now actually...

The Vagrance 01-29-2009 01:27 AM

Sounds pretty awesome, I pm'ed (twice), one of which included a WIP I just started.

After the project fills up, i will be setting the first general deadline in about 2 months time, A lot of the mixers are busy and unlike my cave story project, i don't intend on rushing things along.

My first major goal is to get a good solid group of mixers committed and set working on a track - I'd be content when we have about 18+ of the tracks covered, though I would love to see 25. Once that goal is met, i will set up a basic WIP deadline in about 2-3 months time. Think like March or something.

Beyond that, if the project continues to gain steam and tracks DO fill up - and I have more mixers that want to take on tracks that are already covered, im open to that as well.

The Pezman 01-29-2009 01:30 AM

Why do all these projects come while I'm still in school?

It's just not fair...

jmr 01-29-2009 01:35 AM

I'm interested.
I'll listen to the OST again and see if there are any unclaimed tracks that catch my ear.

JackKieser 01-29-2009 01:41 AM

OMG EPIC. I took a look at the mixers already on board... Gecko. Jewbei. Taucer. SIXTO (epic guitars ftw). And that's not even all?! ...this project will be amazing. CAN'T WAIT MUST BUILD TIME MACHINE.

danimal cannon 01-29-2009 01:47 AM

Danimal Cannon wants to claim Concrete Jungle.

Nekofrog 01-29-2009 02:07 AM

change mine; it is now a collab between sixto and me :)

Alright Nekofrog, its been done.

jmr 01-29-2009 02:23 AM

I was just about to ask for Galaxy Man, but ARGH!! Joshua Morse beat me to it.
edit: Plug Electric isn't bad either.
edit2: Holy CRAP that tracklist is filling up fast.

In a word: EPIC!

Xenon Odyssey 01-29-2009 03:19 AM

I looked at the tracklist and was like "Shit, this is going to be HOTT."

I endorse this project! It's gonna be awesome.

Sole Signal 01-29-2009 03:52 AM

I'd like to claim Hornet Dance.

ProjectSpam 01-29-2009 03:53 AM

Oh gosh, this will be gooood.

djpretzel 01-29-2009 04:27 AM

Word.

Good, HARD game... bought it more for the music than with the intention of spending enough time to beat it, but hey.

A note/inquiry - there were some projects in 2008 that were started/released that were never brought to my attention as "Official OverClocked ReMix Projects". What does said status mean? Besides a subdomain, free pimpage on OCR, etc., not much, so there's no real disincentive. I'd just appreciate a heads-up that this is indeed going to be an OCR album and then when the deadline draws closer, I'd want to coordinate the release with the powers-that-be, as we're doing now for SoS and will be fairly soon for FF4/DKC2.

In other words, lemme know what's up.

KyleJCrb 01-29-2009 04:56 AM

Sixto, CarboHydroM, Fishy, and Danimal Cannon? I approve.

JaDE ARaN HaRuNo 01-29-2009 05:31 AM

Aw man... I can't wait for this one. Megaman music has got to be one of my top favorites. I've always been shocked every time I looked at the project list because there's no Megaman around. God bless k-wix for this idea! :) Good luck to everyone that's apart of it now and in the future! You def got tons of people looking forward to this one...

I appreciate all the rock OC remixers on this project for far. It's going to be awesome...but I hope more electronic OC remixers get involved. Yay to my very close friend Jewbei and bLiNd! :)!! (hint hint... come on Beatdrop...please?)

Beaty's been pretty busy lately, what with military duty and all. It'd be great to see him around again, though!

joe_cam 01-29-2009 07:18 AM

Shit son... you got a nice little project building up here.
I wish I could get half those guitar guys on my projects. I guess I don't bribe them with enough blowjobs.
Can't wait for this one, even though I can't beat even half of the robot stages yet... :(

Hemophiliac 01-29-2009 08:55 AM

well, i guess i'll change my status to wanting to collaborate with any of the remixers working on boss master stage tracks, if not i guess i'd be competing for either galaxy man or splash woman.

so yeah, anyone interested?

Fishy 01-29-2009 10:52 AM

"That username is already in use by another member."

Either your forum r borked or someone likes to play dress up.

Joshua Morse 01-29-2009 01:11 PM

Golly, lookit all of this guitar bias!

I knew that... that's why I'm begging him to be on it regardless...:puppyeyes:

k-wix 01-29-2009 04:23 PM

I just wanted to thank everyone who's responded so far - We now have over 50% of the tracklist covered, and My inbox is still getting slammed with people who want on the project. This is better then i could have hoped for - Thanks to everyone. If you guys want a track or your potentially interested, this is the best time to drop me a pm and reserve a song. If your new, or i don't know you - gotta make sure you have atleast 1 track for me to check out to be considered.

That being said - I'm still hunting for artists - i know you guys are out there.

Deathtank 01-29-2009 04:24 PM

Well, is this an officail OCR project or not? the Lord djp has spoken but nobody answered him!
Infidels! :tomatoface:

We talked on IRC - It will be an official OCR project, unlike my previous one.
