  1. Is there any real way to introduce myself without getting the "you're a moron for even trying to talk here" treatment? :(

    I wouldn't be at this site if I wasn't a gamer. I've been raised on each Nintendo console: NES, Super NES, Nintendo 64, Gamecube. I mostly enjoy reading Play Magazine and Game Informer. Yeah I now it sound's like an advertisement, but whatever. I mostly go after games lest sought after (for no good reason) or the ones that reviewers just can't seem to enjoy.

    And obvious as my first try here, :banghead:

    I hope to be able to talk to some without getting the same treatment at high school.

    dkhlmt3.jpgThis is what happens when I don't know what I'm doing.

    you're a moron for even trying to talk here.

    no, i'm kidding, it's always cool to see a new face around here. Also, i'm another member of the illustrious nintendo faithfull, having been suckled on the NES, and eventually weened onto the SNES, the N64, and eventually onto the 'Cube.

    I think we need to start a "nintendo fanboy's only" club, and we could put a cool little icon in our sigs to show our allegiance.

    if i can get a few people to agree, we can start a thread about it in gendisc. w00t!!1 wtflol!!1

  2. A challenging but beatable enemy is Spekkio from Chrono Trigger. He matches you in strength, though he has stronger spells. Even with your levels maxed out, he can still stomp you. Although, he beatable when you first meet him.

    oh please, strong combo skills, or magus' magic bullshit will blow spekkio away hardcore, so long as you dont get overzealous, and remember to heal your party.

  3. I'm so glad to finally see this peice on the main page. I always knew it would be there some day. Months ago, i heard this peice on the WIP board, and i've been in love with both this particular song, and Eradicate as well.

    It was like a fairy tale of sorts, the original version of the song caught some criticism, but it was not defeated. Like the phoenix, it was reborn, and reborn again and again. This peice being accepted and posted is just the denoument to the fairy tale story.

    I'm happy for you Eradicate, let me know when you have more peices in the work, i for one would be happy to hear them.

    Good luck man.


  4. I've loved this mix since i last saw it on the WIP boards, a while ago. The version i have currently is labled "Timechill(alpha5)," and i dont think i will bother downloading the posted version unless it is a significant departure from my version. afterall, i'm doing my part to save OCR's bandwidth, and I love my version so damn much.

    nice work MV, this is a great peice.

  5. My damn drive like suffered heat death or something, and I have to mail it back to WD for my replacement. thank god for the warranty!!

    well, all 1000+ of my OCRemixes were on that drive, so now i am going to have to download them all again to my primary HD. this of course will slow down my system speed far too much for any good seeding from me, so my seed is out of commission for at least a month.

    wehn i get back though, i'm gonna seed these things with a vengence, possibly from multiple computers if i can get my hands on them...

    dont worry, i got you guys covered.

  6. I want to help with this one, but I am going to have alot of problems being a reliable seeder UNLESS i can find a good linux version of the Bittorrent seed program that operates without a gui.

    my windowsXP machine is a laptop, which is prone to overheating if left on for too long. so I turn it off every night.

    my linux box however, is on all the time, but it doesnt have a GUI to speak of. it is all commandline/shell nonsense.

    if I can find a good bittorrent client for my linux box, you will have a dedicated seed up 24/7 for at least a few months. if anybody knows a good one, send me a PM

    EDIT: I participated in the last bittorrent test that was run, and now I have the first 1000 OCR songs. if I point the new tracker to the folder, will it recognize them? I dont want to have to download them all again.

  7. i seem to remeber this posted some time ago as a WIP..

    since then i can clearly tell you've cleaned it, polished it, and made it run much smoother, very nice, i love it.

    yeah man, thats exactly the thought I had myself. I usually dont venture into the reviews forum, but I figured I would just stop by and say how impressed I am with the transformation this song went through. I listened to the WIP and the OC_remix versions back to back, and the difference is astounding.

    good job mr Jon T.

  8. i think not mentioned are the great peices of bundled software. most soundcards are going to come bundled with a peice of proprietary sound software that can be utilized. for instance, SB people will probably get creative wave studio, that handles alot of basic editing/recording tasks. as far as i'm concerned, anything that comes bundled with your hardware is basically free.

    when you are in a pinch, a technique I use occasionally is called "crash editing." crash editing, as opposed to digital editing, is the process of playing the song in one location, running it through your edits, and recording it to another place. for instance:

    get winamp, and a few free dsp plug-ins. play around with the settings you want until you find your sound, then play it. the trick, is to have a peice of recording software open at the same time to record the new track. in this way, you are using simply a player and a recorder to do some cool things. do a search for some free dsp plug-ins, there are a ton out there that do cool things.

    also, windows comes with the proprietary windows movie maker, which can be used for some very primative sequencing, if you can figure it out. there are tons of solutions for people if they are willing to look into more creative directions.

  9. on a general note, can anybody name a really solid piano soundfont? if not for free, are there any good ones for cheap? I know piano is pretty difficult to synth well, but you cant hurt a guy for trying.

    also, i know brass soundfonts are always tricky, does anybody have a good one they swear by?

  10. and who said you were even invited xelebes? no, i'm kidding. you could probably school me musically.

    i do take it back though. last thing i would want is for a bunch of n00bs PMing me with really stupid/obvious/really stupid questions that they dont feel like searching for.

    Although, i think certain threads here that get more play then others (like the fruityloops 101) should be made sticky.

    wait...they already said that

  11. what i think we need to do is get together the regulars from the remixing 101 forum and the WIP forum(s) and set up a page with all the people, and their help specialties. also, a dedicated page with links to important threads would be a nice start.

    the judges already have important jobs around here, so we dont need to bother them with this kind of stuff. we could form an unofficial "prejudging" group of regulars and professionals from the boards to tackle the problems that come up here.

    meh, thats my 2 cents, for what its worth.
