Hello, Andrew! And welcome to the VGMPF!

I've added a new page called [[Editor's Favorite Songs]]. This will list the favorite songs for just the editors of this site so we can gauge the overall opinion of the community. Each editor is encouraged to vote for up to five songs per platform as their favorite. If you want to vote for an existing song, add your vote to the total, then add your user name to the comment in the edit code so we can keep track; for example:
  
I will correct your mistakes depending on my possibilities.

Hi, Andre. Just thought I'd let you know I forgot to add "Into the Dungeons" when I first uploaded the VGMs. If you redownload the pack now, it should have it.<br>
 
Cheers,<br>

* A strange thing. I ttried to open VGM files trought Audio Overload, bit it didn't open. What prodram was used by you when to listen to this tracks you logged? Aren't VGM files broken? --[[User:M1911|M1911]] ([[User talk:M1911|talk]]) 20:27, 6 January 2015 (MST)
 
  
Hi, Andre. I never really liked Audio Overload since it was a little glitchy for me. I am using in_vgm through Winamp since it is the best known VGM player. --[[User:Doommaster1994|Doommaster1994]] ([[User talk:Doommaster1994|talk]]) 01:48, 7 January 2015 (MST)

I like your [[Wolfenstein]] series page, it is more apt than the existing [[Wolfenstein 3D]] series page. I don't think they both need to exist, so I'm going to delete the old Wolfenstrin 3D page, but first, I noticed that a lot of the existing Wolfenstein game pages link to the Wolfenstein 3D series page. Before I delete the old one, could you change these to point to your new Wolfenstein series page? Thanks! --[[User:TheAlmightyGuru|TheAlmightyGuru]] ([[User talk:TheAlmightyGuru|talk]]) 12:25, 9 January 2015 (MST)

Hi! I would like to request a deletion of the [[José Rafael Cordero Sánchez]] article and its picture. José Rafael is a long term vandal that has published his autobiography everywhere he could have since 2011, wasting many volunteers' time. In this wiki, he has done the same in a promotion attempt.

:: If the song is included, but never played, in a commercially published port, it should be in the Unused category. So, yes for the unused songs in the Game Boy Advance port. But not for the self-published ports (Genesis, Atari, etc.) or fan games like Voxelstein. If we started taking every homebrew project seriously, all our categories would fill up with pages of minor significance. So, when you get a chance, please remove the tag for those songs not in a commercially published game.

M Format

Can you verify that the Worlds of Ultima games use MIDI format for music? I've been looking for a program that can extract the data files, but haven't had any luck so far. --TheAlmightyGuru (talk) 14:55, 7 February 2017 (EST)
