    Spin the Wheel - Number 4

    Hello all and welcome to the fourth edition of Spin the Wheel! A fun way to showcase appreciation of soundtrack based music in Video Games! Today's video game to remix is here! Be sure to read the rules here! This is to help brush your knowledge about the compo! https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Mob5N8UXluhNAUol5mZVyX5yAwUYuAY6KDaPpFzh5Oo/edit?usp=sharing Current games in the wheel: Last weeks winners was Ronald Poe! Sadly he was unable to provide me with 6 games to put into the wheel, so we will continue as normal. If by the off chance he does send me some games, i will use this for the next round. Despite the fact i haven't got any games from him, he can still only participate with a bonus mix, but has a vote that counts twice! The ones highlighted in blue, was the recent choices made for the wheel (2 rounds ago) https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Mob5N8UXluhNAUol5mZVyX5yAwUYuAY6KDaPpFzh5Oo/edit?usp=sharing The Wheel in Action! https://imgur.com/a/NcRf19K Lets SPIN THE WHEEL! It landed on NES for a change! The random game that was chosen is....... Silver Surfer! Download available MIDI files here! https://www.vgmusic.com/music/console/nintendo/nes/ Search Silver Surfer! using Ctrl + F! This game lists 5 midi files, to remix with! There is sufficient material to remix this score. The soundtrack itself has roughly 6 remixable songs in the score. Listen to the Soundtrack:   Information about the Game and Soundtrack:  Silver Surfer is a video game released on the NES in 1990 by a company named Software Creations. While not a fantastic game, with heavily divided opinions on weather it's good or not, it did showcases a rather difficult learning curve, and of course a high amount of praise for it's music, which is often considered one of the best in the Systems catalogue. Based on the Marvel character of the same name, it features the Silver Surfer as he trails through different levels shooting enemies and fighting a boss, just like any other standard shooter. It wasn't innovative, and many cite it as the worst in terms of gameplay. It's not the worst game ever, otherwise the music would also add to the experience, and of course many people claim it to be the best on the NES. The sound was done by Geoff and Tim Follin, often claimed to be the best in the Oldskool video game sound department, making countless memorable soundtracks loved by people. They are brothers, and often work together or go there separate ways depending on what happens. The music is a combination of some classic chiptune rock n roll, and occasional synthpop, acid house/techno pieces like in the title screen. They used all 5 channels and managed a rather impressive selection of sounds without the use of PCM, something many people are most impressed by. Compo starts Today at 15th February 2019! and finishes at 1st March 2019! Voting begins on the 1st March 2019 and finishes on the 8th March 2019. I will inform you who has won on the thread! Please submit a valid mp3 file, in decent quality that is less than 20mb. It must be easy to access and download. A ThaSauce page will be set up soon, so if you can then submissions. It's been an on/off situation with ThaSauce, so SoundCloud is a good choice if ThaSauce isn't working for you. Right now nothing is set up, so submissions will have to be external from this thread, via download links, or streaming services. I recommend using SoundCloud as a choice of service! Add a link here on this thread, if you can. You have 2 weeks to mix! Let's see what you have come up with! Good Luck! Ronald Poe won last time, and as such can only participate with a bonus mix!

    PRC388 - Arrival of the Anubis (Jet Force Gemini)

    Oh wow. This is a really good pick. Sadly it's a nice tune, but this one looks difficult to arrange. Sorry folks, i'll sit this one out. Expect me to vote, though.

    Looks like Ronald Poe is absent. If he fails to send me entries by the next 2 hours. Next round goes up without him.
  4. Only 2 entries, but i guess we can't always be packed with people. I voted anyways.
  5. That's the thing in dual sources. Each person will probably have something different. I didn't know what Dudley_Ghost was going to pick., so that made the combination random.

    Spin the Wheel - Number 3

    And it is over! Our entries included a Submission from Ronald Poe Considering he is the only one, who has participated: Ronald Poe is the winner by default for SPIN THE WHEEL 3! Congratulations Ronald Poe! Since you won by default, you get to decide 6 games that can go into the wheel, one for each system. Just to clarify it's 1 game, per system, not 6 games for one system! One for each system listed below. Before you submit your games you must follow these rules: Do not submit a game that is already in the wheel. Try and go for games that haven't as many remixes Make sure it's re-mixable, but of course it will be anyways lol. Make sure the games you pick, have over 5 tracks long at least 30 seconds or more. I cannot accept games, that don't contain music or a sufficient number of tracks. It's customary to provide me a link to the soundtrack, weather it be YouTube, Dailymotion or whatever. If not, then i will. Please PM me the games, i want this to be private. List the choice of games by the name of the system. So if it was X-Men, that would be classed as a Sega Genesis game and would be placed under that heading. It's also optional to list the composer, to help with the info. What i need is essentially one game from each system listed below. I want these entries by next week Friday 15th February! Once you have sent the me the games, next round goes up ASAP. I will review the choice of games to make sure they are acceptable. Below is a list of games, currently in the wheel. When your games have been chosen, expect to see a couple of games be swapped, for the next compo, which is on the Friday 15th of February. This will be highlighted in colour (Or colours depending if there is multiple winners). The 6 video game systems are as follows: NES SNES Sega Genesis PS1 Arcade  PC  Current games in the wheel (This will change as i receive games from the winners): https://docs.google.com/document/d/1xxoGX4bS2_q_URpN35K8b9oGn1zogHiRxLarik38IZU/edit?usp=sharing Please send me these entries via PM, with each game listed underneath each console. So i'd put it like this if it was me: Name of Game, followed by Name of Console. I need this by Next Sunday 6th January. Congratulations everyone, i will see you next time!

    MnP 100: OverLooked Remix Throwback Bonanza

    Either an error, or a sneakily clever joke, or even a request to combine the sources.

    Spin the Wheel - Number 3

    Well it's over, and we only have 1 entry! (Impressively, not by me) To try and get some entries in, 2 Day extension is added! This is a really fun way to participate! It will get people to understand the appeal of soundtrack based VGM, than one particular track. Let's hope we get more entries in 2 days eh?
  11. No worries. We all have periods where we just have so much to do. Sometimes work comes before play, you know. Good luck to you anyways!

    MnP 99: Elemental Masters - End Credits

    Spin the Wheel - Number 2

    It's not your fault lol. It's just folks are busy, and not everyone will like certain soundtracks enough to remix them. Thanks anyways.

    Spin the Wheel - Number 3

    Hello all and welcome to the third edition of Spin the Wheel! A fun way to showcase appreciation of soundtrack based music in Video Games! Today's video game to remix is here! Be sure to read the rules here! This is to help brush your knowledge about the compo! https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Mob5N8UXluhNAUol5mZVyX5yAwUYuAY6KDaPpFzh5Oo/edit?usp=sharing Current games in the wheel: Last weeks winners was a tie from Hoboka, and Ronald Poe! The ones Highlighted in blue are the choices made by last rounds winner, which was me by deafault! https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Mob5N8UXluhNAUol5mZVyX5yAwUYuAY6KDaPpFzh5Oo/edit?usp=sharing The Wheel in Action! https://imgur.com/a/3Z1LBUT Lets SPIN THE WHEEL! It landed on PS1 again! The random game that was chosen is....... Spyro the Dragon! Download available MIDI files here! https://www.vgmusic.com/music/console/sony/ps1/ Search Spyro the Dragon using Ctrl + F! This game lists 21 midi files, to remix with! It's the original Spyro the Dragon, non of it's sequels. Listen to the Soundtrack:  Information about the Game and Soundtrack:  Spyro the Dragon was created by a game company known as Insomniac Games, published by Sony, released in 1998. The game involves a cute little dragon named Spyro, who has a buddy named Sparx. Your objective is to recuse other dragons who have been place under a spell by the evil, Gnastly Gnorc. The game was one of the more popular titles for the PS1, and after a few weeks and months, it went on to be one of the biggest selling PS1 titles, launching a franchise still, known and loved today. The music is unique to other games, as it was composed by Stewart Copeland, who began life Drumming for the Police. Yep, you heard me, he was involved in the ever so famous 80s group, The Police. The soundtrack itself, is very much a Police soundtrack, with many of the reggae style slow peices, coinciding with the more uptempo rock and funk. For a game, that you would expect have a orchestral sound, is actually more rock (Sometimes though, i suppose some elements in structure and rhythm, could lean into the classical territory) It's a really great score, it would be interesting to see what you make of it. Compo starts Today at 25th January 2019! and finishes at 1st February 2019! Voting begins on the 1st February 2019 and finishes on the 8th February 2019. I will inform you who has won on the thread!
