igNoring thE craSh - An NES Tribute Album [FINAL DEADLINE: AUGUST 10TH]

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to say that I haven't forgotten about the website. I should have something at least semi-functional by this weekend. It'll be simple, but it'll work.

Oh, and the cover is officially done now as well. Just need the title order/mixer names for the back.

Final arrangement is coming soon next week. Just have to write the final part and some solo parts. Maybe I'll let a real guitarist do that though lol

Alright, a bit of time has passed, and I think we've got an established track list set up. Before I type it in though, a reminder: If you have an orange-colored entry, I need you to send a .WAV (must be a WAV) to me asap. If you've already done so, ignore this message.

The track list is:

  • Megaman 3 - ** ~Sagnewshreds
  • Tetris - ** ~ Chernabogue
  • Metroid - Title Theme ~Trev
  • MegaMan III - Title ~Trev
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Tournament Fighters - Fight Music 4 ~Mak Eightman
  • Battletoads & Double Dragon - Missile Mayhem ~Sbeast
  • Contra - Waterfall ~jorito
  • Bubble Bobble - *Undefined/No Specific Track* ~YamaYama/milothefultz
  • Super Mario Bros. 3 - Athletic Theme ~Mak Eightman

Note that this is not track order. That'll be decided after all tracks are orange and received on my end.

I am extremely sorry about the delay, I've been trying to recover from moving and my laptop going kaput (long story). However, I am now back and ready to push forwards with the project.

Currently, I only have 4 tracks out of 9, so I'll need to get the other 5 ASAP. Thanks to the Coop, we have album and web art, and now just the issue of getting the project made official. I'll be sending out PMs to the 5 remaining track holders to see where they stand, and I'll definitely make sure that this is updated more regularly.

Currently, I'm working on a project proposal. I believe we're at a solid enough state to justify that, and get ITC to approval. I have almost all the orange tracks in my possession, just waiting on a few people to respond. I'll notify everyone via this thread when the proposal goes out, but once that's done, it's really just a waiting game from there.

When do you plan to submit? If time allows I'd like to take another look at the mix and see if I can improve it.

You heard the Coop, ITC members! To make it easier, send me what you'd like to appear on the website via PM. (At the most basic, we'll need track names, but notes on your tracks/some information about yourself would be appreciated as well!)

After I've received something from everyone, I'll compile it into a single file, and then send that your way, Coop.

For those who're wondering, I'm still waiting on a reply to the project proposal, but I don't mind waiting a bit longer.

I apologize for my absence, real life got in the way again (it seems like I'm making that excuse a lot, but I promise that this is the last time). Currently I have nothing. The proposal has been sent in, but no reply yet (which could be in part because of me dropping the ball on this one), and I've heard nothing from the remaining trackholders so far.

At this point, I would come up with something to put into a list, give a few wishy-washy deadlines, and call it good. Well, not today - I'm going simple. I feel that it would be unfair to require everyone to jump back on this project instantly after such a long hiatus without some leeway, so I'm going to give a hard deadline...set about two months from now. And to make it important looking, I'll even increase the font size!

FINAL DEADLINE FOR ALL TRACKS: AUGUST 10TH, 2017.

That puts the finish of ITC 63 days away, according to my clock. And during this time, I promise that my activity on OCR will increase and stabilize. I'm not going to disappear again!

So, small in text, but large in importance update! I have received a PM from the project board (is that the right term?), and well,

igNoring thE craSh is now an official OCR Album Project!

Well, almost. There's a few things that need to be taken care of, but within the next week or so, it'll become officially official, to quote Gario.

What does this change? Not much. The final deadline is still set for August 10th. However, the album judges did give some critiques on individual tracks, which I'll be PMing out tomorrow to their respective holders. As for those who haven't turned in a final track, perhaps this will be a good motivator, no?

We're past a major hurdle, guys - now let's get ITC to a release!

(It's fitting too - when I write this, it's ITC's 3rd year in dev! Its almost like a present!)
