ASK A JUDGE: While we're busy NOT voting - your questions, we want 'em


Recommended Posts

So, with the eventual move to IPB, will the move be to IPB 3.X or IPB 4.0 which is supposedly coming out in Q2 this year?

All this resting on the fact that OCR is actually moving to v6, which may never happen within the next three years but could also happen quickly and suddenly. We could log onto OCR next Wednesday and find ourselves staring at a bright purple HOLO-themed OCR forum page. Who knows.

We're more likely to see it if you include "RESUB" or "resubmission" in the subject line or body of the email. The only change in the judging process is that resubmissions skip the waiting line and ge

It says May.

Yeah, just let me know in a DM what you have a question about, and we'll investigate it.

I HOPE... that rather than wait for "new versions" for months and months on end... that they release v6 and don't worry so much about keeping up to date on everything unless there's some super severe security issue. If you try to keep up to date with changing software all the time, you end up working on it -constantly- and running your bank dry. :cry:

The fact that stuff is changing like "personal titles" is awesome cause it makes it look like we might be getting V6 sooner than later :-D And I've literally been waiting PATIENTLY (and sometimes not so patiently!) for that, for years! My big hope is that it leads to a lot of cool new features and makes stuff we're used to even better. And I hope that when djp finally lays down the final bit of markup, the clouds open and a ray of light lands on his head, and he hears a choir of angels and knows that he accomplished something amazing, and V6 will be blessed by God for years and years to come.

Exactly. We're not sure about this yet. Hopefully IPS4/IPB4.

At any rate, it's far more important that we make the RIGHT enhancements to the site... ultimately "V6" - and any version number - is just a milestone for a certain set of functionality & corresponding GUI changes. Nothing's broken right now, just a bit dated. It's extremely hard to work on improvements while continuing to maintain an active site, I can tell you that much. Patience is appreciated.

Or, you know, the heavens tear apart and God's spirit descends into djp (who won't die a premature death).

So in terms of music in games that is arrangements of songs from earlier in the series, like Irate Eight in Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze uses an arrangement of Lockjaw's Saga... Would a remix of that version with the new parts count as an arrangement from DKCTF or DKC2 because it's still Lockjaw's Saga in essence?

If I get a second small monitor and hook it up with the onboard graphic card's HDMI instead of my main graphics card (GTX670) would there be a conflict that causes BSODs because I am using 2 different graphic cards? OR is that a normal thing that people do?

Or could I do that with a laptop? I'm not sure if laptops can be used as a second monitor...

Hello? (ello ello ello ello ello)

...echo joke....

Uhh anyway, was wondering where I can send mix notes for an old mix I subbed and passed that has pretty much no mix notes :3

PM 'em my way, that's fine.

I have two questions :).

The first one is if songs with TV Samples in them are eligible for being posted on oc remix? This I wanted to double-check for the Shonen album.

The second one's s bit off topic, but I figure the judge would know this. I've been here for over a year, and still am not sure what post count is for xD. Specifically the 'Eggplant Wizard' lol. Is there a purpose for that??

Thanks :)!

We'd have to hear the piece(s) in context, but as long as it's not gratuitous usage, it's probably fine.

Would you believe... for fun?

Alright thanks for answering that :). It hasn't been gratuitous so far, but I've had the question come up twice. So I now I know what answer to give :D.

xD. Yes! That's actually why I ended up asking lol. My friends and I were having good fun with that :)!

Is there any way that I could pull a track from being put on the judges panel on OCR? It hasn't shown up yet but I don't even think it's close to something being good for the site, which I didn't really think about when subbing it. : /

The song's "Drowning in a Sea of Bass"..

I'd rather redo it later than have it go through the panel feeling it won't pass..

But even if it doesn't pass, you can still get some feedback from the judges panel on what you need to improve in your track

Do resubs need to follow the "three weeks between submissions" rule?

I don't think I saw that they needn't on the submit/FAQ; but somewhere I have gotten this idea in the back of the mind. Probably making it up, but thought I'd check.

No. Send them whenever.

If you want to find out if we'd accept something, you have to make the mix and submit it. We're not going to say "YES, we will accept something like this" because that's ultimately a pretty meaningless statement. We judge remixes, not ideas for remixes.

In any case, there's nothing special about that remix you posted that would preclude it from being judged just like any other electronic remix.
