  1. I have a friend in Japan, who is a conductor and leads a professional game music ensemble. His dream is to preserve VGM in full musical scores. Not piano arrangements, orchestral arrangements, or any other kind of arrangements. Simply sheet music that shows all the instruments in the original music. He is working with Yuzo Koshiro and wants start with ActRaiser. He would like to do a Kickstarter project, but isn't sure how much demand there is in the West. What do you guys think? Would you buy the full score to ActRaiser? Is there any demand for full VGM scores generally? He tol
  2. Is it OK for a non-OCR-guy to ask for roommates in this thread? We're 2 Finnish guys in a room with 2 beds, looking for 2 extra people. I'm taking one bed and my friend offered to sleep on the floor. Se one bed and floor space available for 3 nights Thu-Sun. This room is the Sleep Room i.e. no partying, only sleeping. I need to recharge after all the concerts and game music love. The reason I came over to OCR for this, is because we are huge video game music fans. Hopefully we'll get likeminded people in our room EDIT: The spots got taken already! (But feel free to say hi to me, I'm tall with
  3. Ah, no actually I'm not, I just chose my name back when I was really into Nightwish. It's a very pretty word :).

  4. I love your idea. I don't know how successful it will be, but there is no point in talking about that. Just keep going and make it great. I can't give you any technical tips but I have some ideas to throw your way. Take a look at Hooktheory. They have analyses of chord progressions in a visual "piano roll" format. You can usually choose to play a piano MIDI version of the song, or the real thing from YouTube. They are perfectly synced. Take a look at Guile's Theme for example. Hooktheory doesn't have a lot of VGM, but there's some. I'm sure you know SoundCloud. I love their timed comments. Her
  5. Wow, I cried. I have been wishing for a Golden Sun remix for a such a long time. I just non-chalantly played the song and all the nostalgia rushed back to my body with shivers, tears and all. Thank you. I can't give you constructive criticism right now, but I really enjoy this song. Good production values and it stays true to the original song! EDIT: Someone help me. I cried again for several minutes, what is happening to me? I'm serious, this song is too beautiful.
  6. Yeah, I know it would make sense to be within VGMdb. Here are some problems that might arise, if I would do that: - Not sure how it would fit my thesis - Huge responsibility and pressure on me to integrate something in the awesomness of VGMdb. - Bilinguality. I need the Japanese with me on this. - Accessibility. I would rather have the concerts and a search bar at the front page when you land on this site. Clicking on buttons to get to submenus is boring. - Simplicity. Japanese flocked to Twitter because it was simple. If this would be within VGMdb and only in English, that might scare them aw
  7. Does anyone know of any VGM shows in January after MAGFest? I'm coming from Finland and I'm wondering what other VGM-related things I can do besides MAGFest.
  8. I love you if you read this. I'm a huge VGM fan from Finland. I will graduate next year from university and my thesis will be about building a website for VGM live shows. Everything from orchestral concerts to rock shows and DJ gigs. All live shows in all countries. It will be user-contributed, like VGMdb. My programming skills aren't great, so the end result will simpler than VGMdb. But I am highly motivated and I have until May to get enough done for a thesis paper. After that I will of course keep improving the site and I hope someone else can help and maybe eventually take over. Features I
