Mega Man X Series Project: Maverick Fight ($$$ prize!) - Tracks for everyone (first post)!

49 posts in this topic

So I have a nice little contest here for you guys - the Mega Man X Series project is in need of some boss tracks from various games of the series, and we're letting you guys take your pick!

The style must be appropriate for the X games (i.e. no slow jazzy boss song). Medleys are allowed.

The deadline for this is March 1, 2010 - decision will be by the MMX project crew in collective voting. Entries are submitted to me via PM, email, etc.

The first place prize is $200, a physical copy of the OCR FF4 album and a guaranteed placement in the project.

The second place prize is $100.

The third place prize is $50.

We will welcome all good tracks that comes out of this of course! May the best person win!

Edit: Here's the anonymous/untagged versions of the entries that are currently being voted on: http://www.math.uiuc.edu/~wcho6/ContestPack.rar

I'm a bit surprised that no one has picked up on this. However, I'm bumping the thread for all to see. Seriously though, we need you guys to get on this. It's hella cool, and worth your while.

Heck, for 250 bucks, you could get a whole album done these days. :mrgreen:

But question is: how all the other remixers on the album will feel, knowing that two persons got paid this much,

while 20 equally-worthy artists haven't received a dime for their hardwork?

Makes me wonder about the legitimity of introducing money in the whole 'arranging for fun' thing,

and also wonder what will come next...

Anyway, I hope you get plenty of entries for this. Rockman X is awesomeness!

This is undoubtedly a great opportunity, so good luck to all contestants.

Well, I want people to choose tracks that they want to do - the exposure will be great for those on board. I am trying to get people to do a certain type of track though because nobody stepped up to the plate in choosing them willingly (excepting for various Zero/X vs. Zero tracks for the most part), so this is to give incentive.

I'm not uncle moneybags, so I don't have THAT much money to give away freely - however, I feel like $200 with a $50 second place prize should be enough incentive to get someone excited about doing such a track.

Hey Bahumut,

A small aside, your nick name, Bahumut, reminds me of fighting Bahumut on the moon in FF2, was that not epic?

Ahem, anyways, You mentioned that you want a style that is not jazzy, but could you elaborate a little bit? Anything fast-ish or.. perhaps you could give a BPM range? I'd hate to fall flat based on requirements.

Not that I'd do it for the money, but 200$ would be nice. I'd probably just donate it to OCR. Since I got waxed in the *other* megaman comp my schedule has opened right up :sleepzzz:

Just that I don't want to see tracks that don't fit - I just gave that as an example of something that wouldn't fit.

And so you all know, 15 days left!

Alright, I'll try to make it fit.

The MMX music never stuck with me, even though I played every mega man game (platformer game at least), so choosing a track(s) was difficult. But I agree with the one you thought was awesome, so hopefully you like what I come up with :wink:

I got some sexyness on the way. It ain't metal but it should fit right into the awesome category. You'll take awesome, yes?

I'll take awesome - in all honesty I'd probably put any track I get that fits the bill to the vote.

Also 6 more days people!
