  1. So you don't want track #, when something like year is up, but insist on something that no one ever sees? You and I can go back and forth all we want, ultimately it's not our decision.
  2. So then, no, since only a handful of them are mandatory. 4.2.1 TPA Part of a set ALWAYS = Exact ReMixID assigned by djpretzel at time of posting E.G. = OCR00541 That confuses me though, what IS that? It's mandatory yet I dont' know if I've seen it. And if that's mandatory, why can't 4.2.1 TRK Track number/Position in set be that way and just be 00541 (in the example given)
  3. Not all of that information is in OCR01650+ is it?
  4. Well since there is no track number, how do I easily see what is post 1650? What is the tagging standard now so I can compare? The only changes I suggested where the album art (only as an additional file in the torrents), the track number, and the possibility of linking it to one of those online databases.
  5. ... Unfortunately I'm the only one bothered by the tags enough to do something about it?
  6. Please don't take this as hostility, but, do you want suggestions or not? Those two lines seem to contradict each other Even though a search of "OverClocked ReMix" in any search engine yields http://www.ocremix.org as the first result? Oh really? Windows Media Player (which I use at work) and Rhythmbox (at home) both can, I just thought that all modern players could at this point. EDIT: I tried iTunes on the Windows XP machine at work and it displayed a 4-character-long track number just fine.
  7. Hey, it is me, only here to complain it seems... This thread keeps moving too... So I guess this is a good idea? The first step would be to figure out exactly what would go in these tags, hopefully have a mod or some such make future submissions follow the same template. {Game Name}{Song Title}OC Remix *{Game Name} = {whatever the name is under http://www.ocremix.org/remixes/} Album = http://www.ocremix.org Track # = {the five numbers of the song's url} Artist = {OCR Artist(s)} Composer = {original composer} Year = {Year of remix's release} Genre = Game Anyone, who actually has an album, know what's involved in getting it on one of those online databases media players look to for information?
  8. April is support OCR month. After bringing OCR (minus OCRemoved) to work, I noticed the lack of consistency across ID3 tags. A lot don't have the year or name of original composers, and even the following ones don't even have the correct album name: http://www.ocremix.org/remix/OCR01238/ http://www.ocremix.org/remix/OCR01140/ http://www.ocremix.org/remix/OCR01220/ http://www.ocremix.org/remix/OCR01131/ http://www.ocremix.org/remix/OCR01195/ http://www.ocremix.org/remix/OCR01139/ http://www.ocremix.org/remix/OCR01607/ http://www.ocremix.org/remix/OCR01177/ Another part I noticed was the naming. Some have the name of the game, then the title ofthesongwrittenlikethis others have it spaced out, others put - or : between them. Even the way the game is written out isn't the same across all of the songs. It's all nice in the website, but if you look in the tags... Final Fantasy VII or 7 Sonic 3 or Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and more ways of writing the name of a game in the "The Legend of Zelda" series than I care to list I'd just like some consistency, some template that future remixes need to follow and it could be applied to the past ones. I realize that ~1700 tags is a lot of work, so I was hoping we could all work on this. A few extra bits I'd like, is the track number to be the number on OCR so track #209 would be The Music of My Groin. I'd also like to see a simple album art icon in with the torrents. If it is possible it would be really nice to have the album on cddb or any of those databases that various music software pulls from.
  9. Make it a project. I'll contribute What is the possibility of it being listed on one of those online album databases? Is that impossible since OCR 'album' keeps increasing?
  10. You do? Then why is it the last time I got them through torrents I noticed a lot of inconsistencies among the files?
  11. Are you applying this sort of listing to the emulators section? 1. It'd be nice to see the icons. 2. The current emulators section is buggy and is showing duplicates (running Firefox 2.0.0.11 under Ubuntu 7.10)

    6 Hours late an no one said anything? North American Virtual Console releases today: Adventure Island (NES) - I guess if the nostalgia factor outweighs the 'better' version released back in February Donkey Kong Jr Math (NES) - We can collectively stop holding our breath since this has finally been released Landstalker (GEN) - I doubt this was released because of the rumored PSP remake EDIT: Bonk 3: Bonk's Big Adventure (T16) - I feel like banging my head against a wall too for the mistakes
