Tales series: Summoning of Spirits - History

Recommended Posts

I hate to be the bearer of some disappointing news, but we will probably not be releasing anytime soon. Yes, I know, that's not what anybody wants to hear, but there is a reason, and it's somewhat out of my hands.

The reason is that, per djp's project scheduling plans (which obviously I can't control, since this is his website, and this project is merely an affiliated thing), DQD is next in the release queue, and it may not be until late Summer before that one hits, from what I've been told. I'm not going to schedule anything at this point, but there is the very real possibility that SoS may not be out until Fall.

Oh well, at least we will have plenty of time to make sure all of the details are taken care of. We'll get it out there eventually.

So, I'm great at misunderstanding things, so let me know if I'm totally off on this one: This project has to wait for DQD to be released, period? Or does it have to wait for DQD to be released on OCR?

Doesn't it getting released on OCR mean it's getting released, period? Or do the judges review the project first?

You know, since I got another gig of RAM, I'm tempted to redo my tracks... but I've redone them smitches way to much already.

When it's released on OCR, that's the release. And the project being released later will actually end up helping it provided it coincides with the release of the new Tales games for the Wii.

The judges don't judge projects. We do take a quick look at album projects just to make sure there's a certain level of quality, but so many have happened since the concept started that people know to bring it. The lineup already looks good; there's certainly no question about that.

I'd suggest ANYONE that wants to tweak their stuff should if they think it'll be an improvement if Kyle thinks it's cool. I saw Usa and V say they were considering dropping out, but I wouldn't drop out at all. We're prepared to give a major promotional push on this one.

the problem is that many of the artists involved have progressed their skill and talent so much more then when they finished their tracks. those completed tracks now feel old and not good or as good as they could be.

i know i certainly feel this way, hell i've been waiting nearly 2 years for mine alone...and that's very aggrivating. many of the other artists finished their stuff earlier then that even.

Understandable, sure, but it'd still be a bad decision to drop out. I'd wager most of the older material still holds up well.

Look at it this way, guys... it's never going to be "perfect." You put in your love and time, you have some work to show for it, and the project is finally coming out later this year, all told.

Personally, I'd think you have a few months to bang out an "improved" version, if you so choose. That's a decent ammount of time if you just worked on one or two, depending on how fast you work. In the meantime, there's a finished product waiting to be released. Obviously, only you guys can make the final call, but me? I'd like there to be something released for a track rather than nothing.

If you honestly think your old work is going to drag the project down in terms of public reception and you'd rather just opt out instead of redo the track, well... honestly, let's just say I'd be pretty surprised if you could get me to agree to that after I listened to the track myself. I'd chalk it up to just being really hard on yourself.

If anyone pulls their track from this project, I'll kill them. And then I'll have them brought back to life just so Lea can kill them again.

Seriously.

Don't doubt me!

I'll do it! I swear!

I never said anything like that, ever :-) Just that my tracks are sub-par, but that I am fine with em as they are on this project ^.^

Hey, sorry, Dan, didn't mean to wrongly infer what you were saying. I love you. :lol:

Oh, I'd do it, too.

Seriously, guys... Yeah, a lot of work was completed a while ago, and it's no fun sitting on it for so long. Working in any art form, you'll always be refining technique, learning new methods, and exploring new directions. Art gets stagnant otherwise. But even if you feel your ability has progressed, that by no means takes away the value of older works.

I can say with complete honesty that I've enjoyed every single track you guys have contributed. I believe they all bring something unique to the project and make it a fuller experience overall, and I'd really hate to see any of them removed.

Since it looks like we'll be looking at an extension due to "outside" factors, people who really feel the need to touch up their existing tracks would have time to do so, I suppose... I just don't want that to turn into procrastination. I'd say that unless the update is timely, the current versions will be used regardless so there's no further wait. However, I seriously don't see that as necessary in the first place - I'm more than happy with the versions we have. You guys have done some excellent work here.
