  1. Thanks for pulling at my heartstrings with this very special game/soundtrack.
  2. Would love to be a part of this once more, if life allows.
  3. Here's an Hip-Hop/EDM arrangement of 'Petrolith Castle' from Skyblazer (SNES), made for AOCC v14. Happy Holidays.
  4. Ditto. And mad props to @The Coop for keeping this tradition alive and crafting amazing pixel artwork year after year.
  5. Will definitely enter this round, if life lets me have fun for like a minute.
  6. Gonna echo what @TSori said, this year's been rough enough as it is. If it's just a case of selecting another, less-controversial OST and starting PLT2 over fresh, then so be it. Nobody can fault you for prioritizing your own well being. Hang tight @Trism.
  7. Here's a chill hip-hop/electronica arrangement of the 'Save Theme' from Resident Evil 4. Happy Halloween.
  8. It's so inspiring to see you've still got the resolve to go forward with this project despite multiple setbacks. Hopefully you've recovered and are feeling better. Great sound upgrade that preserves the late 80s, early 90s rock aesthetic, complemented by a well rounded mixing/prod. Looking forward to hearing more.
  9. The round's been plugged on Discord. Mad props to AxLR on the quick turnout! Looking forward to a few moar entries.
  10. Featuring the most tragically poetic typo in the history of this compo.
  11. Just my opinion, but I don't think there's anything wrong with either of those 2 new rules you suggested. Stopping at the 6th gen makes the compo more inclusive in regard to skill ceiling, sound quality and VST/libraries requirements. PRC is already dedicated to lesser-known games, which means that if you went with popular VGM instead, it'd make both compos complementary rather than a challenge not to step on each others toes every round. Bit of advice tho: if you're gonna helm any kind of community event, it is literally your job as an organizer to plan for a successful turnout. Starting with (and I've said it a few times already) advertising your compo to make sure there is participation. In the age of Discord servers, especially when contestants come from the same artist pool in a buried forum subsection, relying on the same 3 people to carry every event, year after year, isn't realistic. Everyone's interests shift, as do life's priorities and even enthusiasm has limits.
  12. Though using the samplepack was more or less the point of this round, @Dextastic track was really amazing. Congrats on the win!
  13. Voted! Let's hope we can keep the participation streak going. Happy to help.
  14. Yeah, that'd be my bad. Was talking with Trism and he mentioned a slowdown in the recruitment, so I alluded to it maybe being affected by "the allegations", unaware that he and Dai didn't know about it. Trust me, the last thing I wanted was to derail the first OCR project I'd gathered the courage to join in seven centuries. So sorry guys, send all the tomatoes my way.
  15. Nice turnout! For what it's worth I also advertised the compo on discord, and if that's cool with @Bundeslang I'll try to keep doing so in the future.
  16. A tiny little minimalist house arrangement of 'Factory Tour' from Kirby 64. Had fun making this, thought I'd share.
  17. Don't worry about it, no offense taken or anything. It's all good man. :)
  18. It's less to do with self-esteem and more to do with limitations. Tracks with busy soundscapes are taxing to arrange cause I have near constant tinnitus. And since I need to listen to a song many times just to reconstruct the stereo image in my mind (can only hear in mono), things quickly get overwhelming and time consuming. I do love using voice/sfx in remixes tho.
  19. Must have been a popular library at the time, cause some of these vocal clips were also used in Rage Racer and Einhander. Phenomenal track, but much like the RR Revolution source, way above my pay-grade. Luv the idea of the sample pack tho.
  20. ^ This. Let's be real, finding folks interested in arranging unpopular games has always been (and always will be) an uphill battle. That's why it's so amazing that this compo still exists. That said, the PRC410 thread already has more view than any round since 2017 (PRC356). So whatever you guys did, it worked. Hopefully that'll translate to a few entries. Cheers.
  21. First, just wanna say I've got mad respect for you (and @Rexy as well) for holding the torch all those years, providing a training ground that fostered musicianship and helped so many of us develop their skills through friendly competition, all the while paying tribute to lesser known game music, which is a mission we have in common. Every time I fell off the llifeboat and tried to claw my way back into remixing, this compo was always there to help me find the north again. So believe me, I do not wish to see it gone anytime soon. As for promotion, while I'm nowhere near popular or prolific enough to be giving PRC the props it deserves, I'm willing to do what I can on social media. You could also get in touch with starla for advice, because the OHC has got a thriving community and overwhelming participation every week, so she's bound to know the magic formula. Lastly, I believe community Discord servers (OCR, ThaSauce) would be a great place to advertise the beginning of each round, cause I betcha a lot of new remixers bypass the forums to go there. In all fairness you can't be expected to keep the compo alive all by yourself. That's admirable, but also defeats the whole purpose of a 'community' event.
  22. @TheVideoGamer Nah, I honestly think (and I've said so in the past) that this compo deserves to be promoted in some way. Afaik, there is no advertisement/relay either on social media or in podcasts, meaning the success of this event depends largely on recurrent participation through word of mouth. Which, don't get me wrong, can be endearing as a VGM Fight Club of sorts, but at the same time is baffling considering the strength in numbers this community has. Not to mention @Bundeslang has already removed the last barrier of entry that was having to sign up on TS to participate. There very well could be half a dozen entries every round if we just posted/tweeted/talked about it outside of this forum subsection. Unless of course the point was to keep the circle small all along, in which case I'll just shut up and keep remixing.
  23. Less than a day left, hoping for a few more entries this round.
