Hello, Andrew! And welcome to the VGMPF!

==Favorites==
 +
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.

: I also don't know this exactly. I changed the info on the page ony because I saw some time age that [http://www.vgmpf.com/Wiki/index.php?title=M&type=revision&diff=88458&oldid=88453 binarymaster thinks that it's MIDI and it's not M format]. Maybe he know something about it. Sorry if I did something wrong, I'm not good at programming such as un-archieving of the files and don't like to do it all. --[[User:M1911|M1911]] ([[User talk:M1911|talk]]) 05:50, 8 February 2017 (EST)
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>

* 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)

== José Rafael Cordero Sánchez ==
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)
 
  
I moved all links to the new page. --[[User:Binarymaster|binarymaster]] ([[User talk:Binarymaster|talk]]) 14:08, 11 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. For more info, [https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Checklijst_langdurig_structureel_vandalisme/Josercs1|see see the discussion in Wikipedia]. --[[User:Jamez42|Jamez42]] ([[User talk:Jamez42|talk]]) 17:58, 14 June 2018 (EDT)
 +
* Found some info [https://nl.bywiki.com/wiki/Wikipedia:Checklijst_langdurig_structureel_vandalisme/Josercs1 here]. Okay, I'll do it. The only problems is that i can't ban '''Arpolys''', the creator of original page, but probably he won't do it next time. --[[User:M1911|M1911]] ([[User talk:M1911|talk]]) 23:48, 14 June 2018 (EDT)

==Unused songs in Wolfenstein 3D==

Why are you adding the songs from Wolf 3D into the Unused category? --[[User:TheAlmightyGuru|TheAlmightyGuru]] ([[User talk:TheAlmightyGuru|talk]]) 21:20, 23 July 2018 (EDT)
  
Recording the game music as General MIDI will sound wrong due to custom instruments, the good idea is to record the music as played by the game itself.
+
: GBA port + End of Level from SNES. In fact, some Genesis and Voxelstein 3D music also. Is it a case I should mark them as unused? --[[User:M1911|M1911]] ([[User talk:M1911|talk]]) 23:57, 23 July 2018 (EDT)
<hr>
 
  
Нет смысла записывать эту музыку через обычный MIDI проигрыватель, она будет звучать не правильно, поскольку использует другие инструменты. Лучше сделать запись напрямую из игры.
+
:: 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. Thanks! --[[User:TheAlmightyGuru|TheAlmightyGuru]] ([[User talk:TheAlmightyGuru|talk]]) 13:57, 26 July 2018 (EDT)

* ОК, перезапишу под тем же именем. Я написал вам сообщение. Прикол в том, что я не знаю. как переключить звуковое устройсто. Эмулятор врубает сразу MT-32. Как активировать AdLib, Pc Speaker или Tandy 3 Voice? --[[User:M1911|M1911]] ([[User talk:M1911|talk]]) 07:12, 14 January 2015 (MST)

Do you have any idea what might be causing this issue? The first track works fine, and the file size and length are listed on the file pages, so they presumably uploaded correctly. --[[User:PDXmatt|PDXmatt]] ([[User talk:PDXmatt|talk]]) 03:24, 2 January 2019 (EST)
Для записи трекерной музыки в формат [[WAV]] могу порекомендовать [http://openmpt.org/download OpenMPT] - это новая версия ModPlug Player/Tracker, которая теперь является открытой, и в ней исправлено множество недочётов старых версий. --[[User:Binarymaster|binarymaster]] ([[User talk:Binarymaster|talk]]) 06:07, 28 January 2015 (MST)

== [[Apache Strike (DOS)]] ==
 
 
 
Что-то очень много скриншотов вижу я. Рекомендуется добавлять на страницу игры не более 6 штук ([[Editing Rules#Games 3|правила редактирования]]). При этом, если игра поддерживает несколько графических адаптеров (CGA, EGA, MCGA, VGA), нужно делать скриншоты с лучшим качеством, то есть с большей цветностью. Выкладывать остальные смысла не имеет. -- [[User:Binarymaster|binarymaster]] ([[User talk:Binarymaster|talk]]) 06:14, 1 February 2015 (MST)
 
* Предлагаете поудалять остальные? Ну ок, тогда лучше оставить лишь VGA/MCGA (картинка одна и та же). --[[User:M1911|M1911]] ([[User talk:M1911|talk]]) 06:16, 1 February 2015 (MST)
 
:: Именно. Насчёт схожести картинок MCGA и VGA не могу точно сказать, знаю только что MCGA поддерживает 64 цвета (в большинстве игр), а VGA - 256 цветов. -- [[User:Binarymaster|binarymaster]] ([[User talk:Binarymaster|talk]]) 06:33, 1 February 2015 (MST)
 
::: Откуда у вас эта информация O_O ? Даже в окошке в игре (можете даже скачать и проверить, я кидал вам ссылку) указано примерно так: "MCGA/VGA 256 colors". Авторы игры даже не разбирались, с каким режимом делают совместимость? Не думаю, VGA тогда был очень мало распространён (в 1989 всего 2 года, как появился). --[[User:M1911|M1911]] ([[User talk:M1911|talk]]) 06:38, 1 February 2015 (MST)
 
:::: Когда в [[Zeliard (DOS)]] играл, там в настройках было написано, что MCGA 64 colors. Сейчас перечитал статью на Википедии, и выяснил, что MCGA также поддерживает 256 цветов. В общем, оставляйте скриншоты именно в таком формате. -- [[User:Binarymaster|binarymaster]] ([[User talk:Binarymaster|talk]]) 06:58, 1 February 2015 (MST)
 
 
 
==[[Grabbag]]==
 
I noticed the inclusion of a CD track in the Games list for this song. Please note that official game soundtracks are not allowed in the VGMPF per the [[Editing_Rules#Music_Submission|music submission rules]]. We encourage you to write about the various official soundtrack albums the song can be found on, but they must be included in the [[Editing_Rules:_Songs#Albums]] section. You can also add the album to its own Album page. --[[User:TheAlmightyGuru|TheAlmightyGuru]] ([[User talk:TheAlmightyGuru|talk]]) 09:46, 26 February 2015 (MST)
 
* It was binarymaster, not me:) --[[User:M1911|M1911]] ([[User talk:M1911|talk]]) 18:24, 26 February 2015 (MST)
 
: Oops! My apologies! --[[User:TheAlmightyGuru|TheAlmightyGuru]] ([[User talk:TheAlmightyGuru|talk]]) 19:31, 26 February 2015 (MST)

==Ultima Patches==
 
For the Exodus Project Ultima patches that give music to Ultimas 2-5 for DOS, I think it's confusing to list the DOS games under their original titles and with their 1980s release dates. Instead, we should create separate pages for the patched games based on the release dates of the patches in their History.txt files. Something like [[Ultima V: Warriors of Destiny - Exodus Project (DOS)]] with a release date of 2001-08-21. --[[User:TheAlmightyGuru|TheAlmightyGuru]] ([[User talk:TheAlmightyGuru|talk]]) 14:12, 31 March 2015 (MDT)
 
: Much better! --[[User:TheAlmightyGuru|TheAlmightyGuru]] ([[User talk:TheAlmightyGuru|talk]]) 12:21, 6 April 2015 (MDT)
 
 
 
==Test Songs==
 
I noticed you added the test songs from some of the converter software, like in the song page for [[Salute]]. Since these songs are just rips taken from existing games, there is no need to include them. Software (players/editors/converters) should only have a game page if they contain unique music, (for example, [[Creative Music System (DOS)]]) otherwise we'd have tons of duplicated songs. --[[User:TheAlmightyGuru|TheAlmightyGuru]] ([[User talk:TheAlmightyGuru|talk]]) 12:21, 6 April 2015 (MDT)
 
 
 
==Downloading Games==
 
The VGMPF's main focus is videogame music, and while part of that means actually needing to have access to the games. I noticed with [[DX-Ball (W32)]] and [[Voxelstein 3D (W32)]] that you uploaded the full game to the Wiki. I wish we could include a downloadable version of every free game that's covered on this site, but I just can't afford the server space to have both a music site and a game download site. Thankfully, there are plenty of great online game repositories that we can link to. So please, rather than upload the games to the VGMPF, use the "Download" parameter in the Game Template and include a link to a site where visitors can download the game. See [[4Four (W32)]] as an example of how this works. --[[User:TheAlmightyGuru|TheAlmightyGuru]] ([[User talk:TheAlmightyGuru|talk]]) 08:54, 8 April 2015 (MDT)

Favorites

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:

2 <!-- Users: TheAlmightyGuru, YourNameHere -->

Of course, you're welcome to add a new song to the list too! I hope you'll join us in creating a list of favorites for each other and our guests! --TheAlmightyGuru (talk) 10:58, 2 February 2016 (MST)

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)

I also don't know this exactly. I changed the info on the page ony because I saw some time age that binarymaster thinks that it's MIDI and it's not M format. Maybe he know something about it. Sorry if I did something wrong, I'm not good at programming such as un-archieving of the files and don't like to do it all. --M1911 (talk) 05:50, 8 February 2017 (EST)
No worries. I'll make a point of this on the page so that other editors know we're looking for some hard evidence. --TheAlmightyGuru (talk) 10:35, 8 February 2017 (EST)
