There might be some additional remixes if they get finished before the release, but yeah this is about 97% done now

OK, I just realized that while we kind of hang out on the project forums a bit, I ahven't touched this thread in a while.

So, basically, we have 18 completed remixes, which quite a bit more than my original minimum number, and I love all of them.

We also have a lot of good artwork for the site and the CD cover. Thanks to our artists again.

The basic layout of the website is done, and the overall design is good. Mostly, it's just laying out the different parts and hosting it.

The final part of the whole thing is a release date. If Nintendo would get off their asses and post a release date for Heart Gold and Soul Silver in North America, we could release before it to cash in on the hype.

There. The reason why it's not out yet is Nintendo's fault. Blame them for everything.

I thought everything was my fault?

I blame Atmuh.

EDIT: also could I possibly do something for this? Probably too late to, but I just thought I'd throw it out there.

You should work on all those other projects that you don't have a WIP for first.

I keep forgetting: how long was the OST for the first 7 mainstream Pokemon games? (Red, Green, Blue, Yellow, Gold, Silver, and Crystal)

If you ask me, cashing on hype doesn't justify anything unless you're perfecting the product in the meantime.

I'm actually planning on spending a shit-ton of time HARDCORE working on music, which motivated me to ask about this project. :)

He's set a bad example for the rest of us by making his projects stall for so long :razz:

Hey man, the Around The World delay isn't my fault.

But yeah, otherwise...

You forgot Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald, and Diamond/Pearl/Platinum. Last I heard, they were considered "mainstream" games (by which I think you mean "main series").

To answer you question, if you remove the remakes and their music, but include music made exclusively for the third versions (Yellow, Crystal, Emerald and Platinum), we get roughly 415 songs. Now, we could cut that down a bit by removing some songs that carry the same melody (like the Gym Leader theme that is used across the series) and the various chimes and event tunes (barely even six notes, if that), we still get well over 350 songs.

Now, as much as I like to do the entire series to date, I thin that would be a never-ending task, and I think the talent drain is bad enough. Besides, we have a nice sampling of each generation, and I think it works.

Maybe in the future, if this album is popular enough... a sequel album? "The Missingno Tracks: Special Pikablu Edition"?

If you ask me, cashing on hype doesn't justify anything unless you're perfecting the product in the meantime.

What exactly do you mean by "perfecting the product"?

We are taking music from GameBoy, GameBoy Advance and DS games, and redoing them into vocals pieces, piano solos, psychedelic mindtrips, and punk/ska rock-outs, using everything from saxophones to DragonAvenger's voice. If that meets your definition of "perfecting", then there you go.

As for the idea of cashing in, a new game always gets the fan community excited. This way, we get more attention, which means more downloads and torrent use, which means more people listen to the music we put all this effort and time into.

Besides, it's not like we're aiming for the exact same day. I would love to get at least two to four weeks before. If they both came out on the same day, everyone would be busy playing the game to even bother with this album. We'd put it out and no one would bother looking it up. That would make us a bunch of sad pandas.

I knew before you said it that Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum were the main series. I just didn't mention them because nowhere in the first post (that I've seen) does it say this project is covering those subsequent 6 games.

As for "perfecting the product"...Sorry. I've spent so much time debugging programs that I think everything has to be obsessively "debugged". I got carried away with my overperfectionistic thought patterns that I feared for this project.

I wanted March 1st... but that got shot down by the powers that be.

April 1st? Haa haa, no. Maybe April 15th, but from what I was told, it's more likely to be May 1st than anything else.

You can go look up your mudkips elsewhere on your own.

They've just scheduled Heart Gold and Soul Silver for March 14 (aka Pi Day). If The MissingNo Tracks is to be released in April or May, I hope the hype on HG/SS will recede before then!

I would, but DJP was all "nah brah, that's when someother project comes out," and I was all "Weeeeell, cockfuck. There goes that plan" and then he was all "dude, chillax, it will happen, and stuff. You want to hit this" and I was all "dude, I'm muslim, we can't do that," and then he was all "you're muslim?" and I said "no, not really, I just like to see how people react to that," and then he was all "whatever, man" and I was all "whatever" and then we were all like "whatever.

True story.

Mostly, there are only three or so remixes left. One with DragonAvenger who had computer problems, and a couple of remixes that just popped up.

You want a listen-too, LT? I can hook you up.

They were too awesome for this project. Those will be saved for Missingno Tracks Special Edition, coming out later this year. It has a different cover and a few extraa songs for only a few hundred bucks extra!

I could really see it all happening like it was a movie. You're a good storyteller, you know that?

I'm not joking at all.
