  1. Well I do really enjoy your original compositions a lot. They have a really beautiful flair and never sound forced.

    I do think that your cover of Clockwork needs a lot of work. As it stands the song is much to close to the source material. There are some parts of the song that sounds muddled from 00:14 to 00:50 the whole passage sounds very rushed and the original notes are placed very awkward. This also stands true for the parts that repeat this part. The emptiness referred to earlier is the fact that you have a maximum of 3 instruments that play at any single time and there are some parts where one instrument stands alone and it makes the song sound very bare bones.

    Heres what I think you should do.

    -Diversify your arrangement

    It sounds to close to the original to qualify for the OCR remix standard.

    -Use some different instruments

    Everyone and their mother has a Clockwork remix and many of them have harpsichords and piano. What makes yours any different?

    -Work on your tempo

    Are you making a fast Clockwork track or a slow one. The tempo is rushed and jumbles up the song.

    -Listen to the source music more

    Break the song down and really hear what makes the song tick. Hear the spacing and pauses. They are especially important in this song.

    Keep working on it. I can tell by your other original songs that you have some awesome skills so just go for it. Be silly and experiment, work outside of the box.

    I hope I wasn't to harsh or anything.

    Happy Composing.

  2. I really enjoyed this one alot. It's hard to upgrade the material without making it sound strange or flat but this one really brings out the original well making it seem more aggressive. After a quarter of the way through the song some of the samples tend to get muddled but over all it works nicely. I like the note variations you put in and the solo is interesting too.

    Heres hoping for a Dee Jay or Cammy one :)

    Keep plugging

  3. Thanks evilhead.

    So now Ive finally got my fliptop on and Im playing massive quantities of Neo Geo Battle Coliseum and Garou :)

    Question for people who own KoF Orochi Collection. Does the music in the game continually cut out. I heard that this was a problem on the original '96 but the music cuts out far too frequently on all three games '95, '96, and '97. Any known fixes??

  4. Quick question:

    Is it necessary to know the TOC of a game if you own the original?? One guy said it gives an idea of what games need to be rebuilt. The more I read about Swap Magic 3.6 and cogs and elfs the more I get confused.

    Basically what Im interested in doing is putting in swap magic, pulling it out, sticking in said original japanese disc, and playing it. No back ups, nothing complicated.

  5. Importing. I thought of the same thing too. I think my fliptop is coming in tomorrow and I purchased NGBC and GMOTW and they are wonderful to look at. KOF XI is fucking elite and you can also give Melty Blood and Guilty Gear Accent Core a try. I vouch for the import. Lets list em

    Neo Geo Battle Coliseum

    Garou Mark of the Wolves

    King of Fighters XI

    King of Fighters Orochi Collection

    Darkstalkers Collection

    Melty Blood Act Cadenza

    Last Blade 1 & 2

    just way better in my opinion.

  6. Well, I guess I'm biased because I hate Japanese style controllers. The ball sticks are a pain to use and the buttons feel so cheap. But yeah, if you do like the Japanese style controllers go crazy with the Sanwa stuff. I just don't like it personally.

    Yeah for some reason I really dont like joysticks very much myself. I prefer using Xbox s model controller. My favorite controller of last gen. Joysticks Im too clumsy with, PS2 d pad blows and gives my index fingers blisters, and the Gamecube control is decent but not the greatest (my hands are not ultra small but huge so that reasoning on why i like the gc controller wont work)

  7. My friend and I are finally going to take the dive into modding our PS2s. We are going to import 3 games from ACE Game Store on Ebay

    The guy supposedly lives in Canada and the item is supposedly Japanese. He has 99.1 positive feedback and all his negative feedback is due to shipping issues but the item is said to ship from Hong Kong. It has been told to me to not trust anything from Hong Kong. Has anyone had any personal business with this guy. Is is legit?

    This is his store


    Thanks alot. Your replies are most appreciated.

  8. Whoa!! I didnt realize that you could use it on the chunky ps2. I thought it was only for a slim style.

    Could you direct me to a website to buy one of these nifty things. Ive googled mod chips and found chips and the flip top for slim style but not that one.

    Thank you so much. This is going to make modding so much easier ^___^

  9. I believe it only works with the slim model ps2. basically you remove the original to replace it with the flip top and when you go to put in the all region disc afterwards flip the top open remove and replace with said imported game.

    the only problem is i have a chunky ps2...

  10. Hey you guys. Any suggestions on modding a PS2? Im growing sick of not being able to play the most current fighting games and with my patience running out for KoF XI Im thinking about modding my chunky ps2? Preferred methods? I heard something vague about HD Advance but Im not quite sure as to what it entails.

    Also if you suggest modchip is there a particular kind I should get?

    Thanks alot

    (im looking forward to accent core, xi, darkstalkers collection, kof orochi saga, kof 94 rebout and melty blood.)
