  1. And here I was, posting half-joking/half-seriously that Square should include our project in the upcoming Collection of Mana game, when someone should come along and do something just as good without having to involve SE and loads of red tape to do it. Puts a smile to my face. Any chance you could share a link to the MSU-whatever page when you put it up and make it available? I want to be able to see it and share it around.
  2. No one else is getting dibs on this news. I'm doing it! https://kotaku.com/konami-announces-the-turbografx-16-mini-1835430762 I read this and now I need new underwear. And new pants. And a new computer chair. And new carpet and possibly some work done on the foundation of my house because that's how hard I shit myself reading this. ***damn, the Japanese version is even getting Dracula X. Not quite the hard-to-obtain title it used to be, but that alone is going to make import sales go up though I suspect we will have a chance to get it stateside. Hurray and hallelujah!
  3. Hmm, I'm kinda surprised no one responded to this. It actually is a fair question as I've been here for 15 years and I still have to go looking for how to change my signature stuff every time I want to change it, and that process can change as well. 1. Top right of the webpage where you see your chicken picture and "thebitterroost". 2. Click it and go to "account settings" under "settings". 3. Left side of the page in the gray border. "Signature". There you go. Didn't used to be that easy, so I totally respect that you had trouble finding it.
  4. Sonic is definitely derailing the topic here, but it seems rather obvious to me there is an intentional if not fully blatant theme of 90s cringe being injected into the Sonic movie. Gangsta's Paradise? Jim Carrey? A video game movie trying to happen in the real world taking itself somewhat seriously? It's all so incredibly 90s as Sonic itself. Even the dynamics of the trailer reminded me of being in the movie theaters in middle school.
  5. Not quite sure what I was expecting from the Sonic trailer given people's highly exaggerated negative reaction to it (we have wars going on with child soldiers that aren't getting this kind of reaction) but that wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be. And I can't hate any video game adaptation that managed to get Jim Carrey as the villain.
  6. ??? They aren't that expensive. Not chump change, but not like hundreds of dollars either.
  7. That's called an "Everdrive and a 4GB miniSD card". C'mon, Nase, no company on Earth would release such a thing officially. It'd be impossible.
  8. Please don't post awesome announcements like this before 7:00PM. My boss says I'm not allowed to nut at work anymore. <:O <:O <:O
  9. While I'm curious about this shirt you had that "died" on you, as it surely wasn't alive or running power beforehand (I hope!) I'd rather dedicate this post to being curious to know if there's any planned updates coming to the apparel scene with the Ocremix brand on it instead. With all the advances in 3D printing and shit, it's criminal that you ain't doing none of it! I want my SD3 Songs of Light and Darkness 3D hoodie!
  10. That's pretty good. I got my first copy of Super Metroid in a lot with Super Mario RPG and Mischief Makers from somewhere in 2001 for like $70 I think. Was 18 years ago this month and now those games and Spring are permanently entwined to me.
  11. Time and fate are nothing but experiments in cruelty via temporal snuff fetish and they should be incinerated from the mind as soon as the will permits. The past, present and future can New Jack Swing on my aged, shriveled nuts. To contribute something more directly on-topic if less deeply profound - the earliest thing I remember buying was the Super Nintendo from the Sevierville K-Mart that is only just now closing for good. I was 8 years old, had somehow saved up enough money with some contribution from my parents to obtain it and walked out with what has proven to be the greatest investment I've ever made for myself. I think somewhere along the way we lost a $20 bill inside the store, but I never heard anything about that afterwards. I still have that Super Nintendo today and its influence on my life cannot be understated.
  12. Based on the 5th one? Seems natural. Dragon Quest V is basically the "Stardust Crusaders" of the series.
  13. I thought there were 40 games?
  14. I didn't know Avien had died. And by remarkable coincidence (and I use the term "coincidence" lightly), for some reason when I brought up Winamp literally right now, the first song loaded into it is Avien's Nouemon mix from Relics of the Chozo. I haven't listened to Relics of the Chozo in at least 5 years, I don't even have that song on this computer, and I know I've used Winamp much, much, much sooner than that. Odd vibrations.
  15. Yes, despite what I said about soundfonts a while back, I still have easy capability to use them and therefore still use them when necessary.
  16. SAC would be nice for me to have, or that SNES reverb reproduction, and I keep thinking about getting it from time to time, but there are reasons I can't buy it. Such as life. The Sega Genesis has the best chiptune drum set of all time, IMO, you should probably go with a set of those. Even with SNES-sounding stuff I think they gel together well. Outside of that, what I've used the most for quasi-chip/ancient-sounding stuff are Alesis SR or D4/D5 drum samples. There's an Alesis D4 soundfont out there that I'd been using for over a decade and can recommend as well.
  17. Well, it only took a week, but someone finally responded. I guess I was at first over-estimating a METUHHHHHHHLLLLL topic in today's EDM-flooded musicscape. On a more positive note, WHOA that PowerWolf song kicks more ass than I had to start with. That's more than exactly what I was looking for! I myself found some more Power METUHHHHHHHHLLLLLL that I will post when it's not 4 in the morning after a particularly draining day filled with literal blood and stomach acid.
  18. OCremix is not dying, your standards for activity are just out of whack.
  19. Now that I'm 60 years old and 425lbs, getting exercise and the will to live is fairly important to my week's routine. I found recently a vein of power/melodic metal that has reinvigorated some dormant fighting spirit within me that I want to share and then also ask for recommendations for more. And then we can go on to talk more METUHHHHHHL! Because who doesn't like a metal topic? Here's what I'm listening to nowadays and looking for more of - stuff that sounds pretty close to these melodies, keys, chords and arrangements. A preference towards instrumental, but not required. Have fun, metalheads.
  20. Let's be real here - soundfont versions of SNES or game-sampled stuff has iffy quality at its absolute best. Technology has improved on it by now. You can make your own Cyan flute with a super short grace note at the beginning of a note one or two half-steps above the pitch you're trying to do and then have it vibrate with modulation.
  21. Howdy. Today I present you our nearly long-lost interview with Hiroki Kikuta that was done during development of the Seiken Densetsu 3 ocremix project. For some reason, this interview was very difficult to keep a hold on, we lost the first version that Jahan Zoltan graciously helped us with in translation and I'm still embarrassed that I asked him to do it again after that, and then there were some obstacles in getting it posted where people could read it after that. I've been in the web development/marketing/blogging industry for 16 years and I'd never had a document be so slippery! But thankfully I was recently able to recover it once again (this thing is cursed by Annabelle, I swear) and to make it easiest all the way around for everyone, I just had it posted to my websites www.meteoxavier.com and www.jslawhead.com with credits going where credit is due. Proper linked version is here: http://www.jslawhead.com/2019/02/my-interview-with-hiroki-kikuta-seiken.html Thank you and please enjoy.
  22. Sigh... I confirm that Fruity Soundfont player does not appear to work on 64-bit FL Studio. Some months ago I put FL Studio 11 on my laptop and put on the 64-bit version only to find that Fruity Soundfont player does not load on it. I tried some other soundfont VSTs, but I wasn't satisfied with any of them. I may suggest abandoning the concept of trying to play Soundfonts entirely as they are really outdated for use today. There are no soundfonts that equal the quality you can get from some affordable VSTs now and if it's difficult to even load them into a DAW, it's a sign it's time to move on. The VST I've been touting for folks who still want an all-around package that has major affordability, reasonably small size and really respectable/usable quality is Xpand! 2 by AIR. https://www.airmusictech.com/product/xpand2#.XGMCHvnavIU . This is like a modern Roland Sound Canvas with a full range of the necessary instruments and you can usually find it >$20. I bought mine for $1 legitimate and I'm genuinely pretty impressed with it for what it is. I think that's where the proper substitute for soundfonts holds in modern times. With the right effort, you could really make a pretty good remaster of FFVII music with Xpand 2 alone in my opinion.
  23. The most you get for it is whoever offers to buy it for the highest price. Used PS4s are rather common and without knowing much more of the condition yours is in, it's not easy for us to provide an answer that's worthwhile to you. Try gauging with this: https://www.pricecharting.com/console/playstation-4
  24. Who knows. The core problem with finding worthwhile music work is the overwhelming supply of musicians versus the comparatively little demand for it (in a nutshell), and a service like this is unlikely to change that. Then again, I've been pleasantly proven wrong about plenty of things that went on to be successful, so it's worth being openminded about it.
  25. This appears to be a pretense to some sort of music employment platform/enterprise you are connected to building.
