  1. Thank you. Good to know! Hopefully I provided at least half a percent of influence of ideas or anything. Yeah unluckily there was much mentality pre-2010 or so, for me anyway (even me?), of not wanting to use up so much space exporting one's projects to lossless, in addition to the sometimes naturally blind belief that it can be done later.
  2. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32ZUO60kxlg&t=46m15s The battle theme after sounds somewhat related, too, if the castle theme is too short. (Heck there's even a part of Lufia 2 Battle 3 that sounds like it.) Definitely would require some considerations for entirely new sections or partial reconstruction in the most ideal scenario as a sort of debut to OCR.
  3. Whoa what, no reviews? Having never played Dark Souls (did play Bloodborne), this is my favorite RoeTaKa in recent memory. Very elaborate, intense, meaningful.
  4. Whoa I was graced with the MP3 version! http://www.escaprism.org/songs/Game Songs & Remixes Megamix - JoBeLiSuReBe.mp3 So old!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sometimes I wonder how I had the time to be so damn creative regarding very small pockets of these older mix works of mine. https://pastebin.com/cYa0XFnU/ Found the tracklist, too.
  5. Sorry for the re-post from the Newbies forum, but I figure it'd get more attention here (not that it demands it... except imo :p slightly). Been brought up multiple times, but hopefully the following is concise. --- I haven't consistently visited or downloaded 99.5% of OCRs ever since around 2008. But I just decided to start listening from 3000-current. (And 1500-3000 after that, and hell might as well go through 1-1000 for nostalgia.) And, after liking what I've heard so far, and occasionally being unable to find lossless versions online, I've been thinking of some ideas to incorporate FLAC into published OCRs. Idea #1: a) Always ask for lossless from submissions by asking them to be sent through a reliable data service. (How's a mix utmost 'properly' judged without doing so, actually? I don't know how things work around here/now, so maybe asking for lossless already happens. ... If not: well "a)" would make it so!) b) Delete them if the submission is voted No [thus not published] — unless a separate organizational entity wishes to keep them, for [?] reason. c) Convert the FLAC to MP3 for publication on OCR's main page. (I don't know the ideal MP3 conversion: if it should be consistent or depend on some standard—likely file-size-related.) d) Safe-keep the FLAC until it's time to release another major torrent. (Yes, that long.) e) Include all possible* FLACs in the official OCR torrents. ... So, alongside the MP3s: make the FLACs only downloadable via torrent—for obvious economical reasons. F) Soak up the inner anguish of ~4000 OCRs having gone by without this idea having been incorporated & learn to enjoy the vastly sized future! * — I would imagine not every mix could be made available in FLAC if the submitter declares he/she doesn't want it available for any reason. They can declare so in the future, too. Delaying the release of the FLAC until it's time for the torrent also gives the submitter time to decide what direction they want to go for the availability of their mix. Idea #2: There is no Idea #2, because relying on unincorporated third parties for the OCR lossless feature would ultimately be a segregated impractical mess of invisible egos pitted against each other. ... ... (I've even had the idea myself to take up the task, in the distant past. But ultimately I don't think it would be the way to go.) The only other party would be the submitter putting the mix up on other websites. (I'm not exactly sure what the policy currently is on that, but seems like free reign sans filename/metadata.) --- So in combination with asking ReMixers for past lossless mixes (at whatever time the admins feel like it), the above system in place could be a good way to streamline the whole process. Having this streamlined would organically influence and attract non-FLAC savvy ReMixers via increased social desire to submit official quality improvements of their older and future works, grow the count of the site's listener base by offering "CD Quality" versions of what otherwise prevents their full attention, and enhance present listeners' experiences.
  6. This is the loudest digital file to ever grace the Internet from a respected veteran. Oddly addicting.

  8. Absolutely incredible imaginative as all get-out track that could have all sorts of interpretations. I think it has unique additions in its second half, to add insult to injury when it comes to continually bringing the hurt (of infinite musical inspiration!). Maybe as some sort of prog rock thing (just to get the creative juices/inspirations floating, in any common-folk reading this), but could be literally anything! I haven't posted here in years, almost to the point of absurdity that I would ever have any newfound purpose for doing so. But this has awakened my soul back here. ... CALLING C-JEFF!? ...One can dream.
  9. Holy thread revival batman!!!! Does anyone still have this??? LOL I lost it.
  10. I've decided to do all I can, to figure out how to get some leads on my ruminations in my post above. Here is my mission statement pasted from #thasauce on EsperNet (since that's where they say to go on http://www.vgmixarchive.com/) [15:40:34] <audityo> heya, found an odd website with old info on vgmix x tracks http://astroblahhh.com/music/astrosort/mercury.shtml[15:41:07] <audityo> was thinking of going through and seeing if i can contact people to see if more can be found for vgmixarchive.com[15:41:13] <audityo> thru this information[15:41:16] * audityo is now known as audity[15:41:34] <audity> (or i guess vgmix in general not just X, but i'm really interested in X)[15:42:06] <audity> already e-mailed the website owner though he might take a week give or take to respond, probably[15:43:33] <audity> too bad i didn't find this site earlier, since last.fm has gone through so many versions now, some of the MP3s seem to be gone now haha, if they were ever there[15:43:55] <audity> of course those are just 128kbps reconverts of the original mp3s i think[15:52:06] <audity> but hopefully the owner has them all anyway (and maybe more) https://myspace.com/cultgaming/music/song/zelda-theme-9583234-93844181) Already found a VGMix X track that sounds nice, and doesn't appear to be on vgmixarchive.com, though I don't see any way to download it from this myspace. https://www.dropbox.com/s/raruoayhq51garc/For%20Audity.zip?dl=0 2) Here is a ZIP file that definitely has 3 tracks that were on VGMix X, but aren't on VGMixArchive. You can look at Astroblahhh's website (the second link at the top of this post) to double check that it's correct. My ultimate goal is to find some remixes that I personally remember as being fantastic. I hope something more can come out of this. That's enough for today's work. In some day's time I will continue to look at Astroblahhh's website to see if there could even be some "VGMix 2" stuff that is not present on VGMixArchive. I think that should be enough effort from me to prove that I'm serious about this—in hopes to take things even a step further (if someone does still have VGMix X's website layout/shell stored away).
  11. So nobody has even the layout saved from VGMix X? There were so many remixes there! And some of them were pretty enjoyable. If you go to http://www.archive.org there is no way to even see the "songs pages" from VGMix X! One of the admins of VGMix X has to have this layout/information, ...right? I still think it's possible one of the admins has it—so we can at least see the information, let alone lost MP3s. virt? anyone?
  12. http://www.twitch.tv/audity I've been streaming the entirety of the SNES's musical library—alphabetically, from snesmusic.org, in order to find "good music." I started months ago. I'm currently on letter B. I have already finished letter A, and I have strung together a megamix/medley for it, which can be found here: http://www.escaprism.org/songs/snes/BestOfSNES-A-individual-files.zip The plan is to have: 1) A personal assortment of music files from the SNES's music library – which maybe others besides me would like to listen to, from curiosity. 2) A megamix for each letter, because I like megamixes for some reason. 3) At the end of the project, a megamix or series of megamixes that spans all letters A-Z (selecting the best from the previous megamixes). 4) Perhaps some further-condensed lists of music from the whole library, to prevent having a huge amount in one comprehensive list. http://www.twitch.tv/audity/v/26187790?t=57m40s This is an archived video from the latest stream. (Hopefully I can improve the quality of the stream, though it's not bad or anything.) I remember someone many years ago on this forum said he was going to go through every single SNES game's music. I'm not sure what happened to him. But here I am, and I don't think I'm going to stop.
  13. The only experience I have with SMS is hearing djp gush about it endlessly, hence making ReMixes for it, thus eventually inspiring me play the first Phantasy Star back in 2002 (on emulator, and once more in 2015 [on the same emulator for the most part, until I realized there are way better ones after more than a decade passing, somehow successfully transferring the save files over despite them being a different file type, by simply renaming it to them, with no guides on how to do that that I'm aware of]). I think it's equal to, or better (this, personally), than FF1 for the NES. I have not thought about listening to the rest of the system's library of music even once, though, despite really liking the music to Phantasy Star. Then I ran across this video with fully mysterious to me music, making it a nice treasure trove. The music is really bright, less gritty than NES perhaps, making it relieving to hear, as a contrast I suppose. Maybe the NES has better variability, and sometimes layers, even smoothness (however, Galaxy Force is sounding really smooth right now!), though, and maybe some better musicians, overall, too. Maybe the atmosphere given as initial influence for the console's creation was primarily being overly happy-type music (also true since the samples bring that out), so that's the line artists went with, for a larger portion for its library. Yet there are still tense tracks, like the one at 25:35. Like the NES, it seems to require taking a break before listening to too much; but maybe a more refined or thought-out list could prevent that.
  14. this links to it this also links to it I've been going through all of the alphabetical A's (will begin with the B's and so on, when the time comes) in the SNES's library of music to find all the most interesting music, and came across this track. (It was also used in the SMW romhack, Call of Cthulhu.)
  15. No one has seeded it for years, and I no longer have the file. lol. Not sure anyone even downloaded it from the torrent, maybe a couple, maybe none.
