Hello, Malvineous!

Wow, I've never seen so many new changes at a time! You're awesome :)

But don't forget to list the contributions on your page, because it'll be comfortable to you and others to monitor and check it when something changes.

Best regards --binarymaster (talk) 06:40, 11 January 2015 (MST)


  • UPD: helped you to add your contributions to your page :) Feel free to modify it as you like.

Haha thanks! I had a bunch of songs I wanted to get out there and some time to do it, so it all came together nicely :-) Thanks for the update on the userpage, that saves me quite a bit of effort! I always figured someone would look at Special:Contributions/Malvineous if they were interested but your style of list does make it much easier. Thanks again :-) -- Malvineous (talk) 14:10, 11 January 2015 (MST)

Music and Recordings

Hello!

I see you added game tables to MIDI and XMI. If the format is used widely in many games, we're not using table, but just making a link to the category. Well, maybe it makes sense to list some impressive music, let it be so.

Also here is list of some games using XMI, which are not added for now.


And another question is about Stargunner (DOS) soundtrack you just recorded. The panning sounds wrong (Title music), the game plays main melody at the center panning position, but here is right panning position in your recording.

Just checked, latest version of OpenMPT plays it correct as expected.

Oh sorry, I just saw the heading "Games" with a blank section and figured nobody had added the list of games yet! If you feel the table will become too large then by all means remove it again, but perhaps replace it with some text explaining why there's no table so someone else doesn't make the same mistake :-) However I do like going to the format pages and listening to a sample of each game that used that format, as it is interesting to hear how well (or how badly) each game used the format. That's a bit harder to do from a category page!
No problem, everything is ok! --binarymaster (talk) 13:01, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
With the Stargunner music (and indeed all my DOS recordings) I've been using the default/original MOD panning settings. I guess if there are events that change the panning these should be used - odd that ModPlug does not if they are present, as that's what I used for the recording. However aside from this, I guess the recording should match the game as best as possible? Unfortunately I have not actually played Stargunner so I am sorry to say I did not notice the difference :-$ -- Malvineous (talk) 11:57, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
ModPlug is OpenMPT now :) Obviously you're using old ModPlug Player, which doesn't support some effects (or interprets it wrong). --binarymaster (talk) 13:01, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
Oh indeed it is! I'm actually using the latest version of libmodplug but it looks like this has been replaced with libopenmpt and nobody in the Linux world seems to have noticed... I will have to investigate! Thanks for the tip :-) -- Malvineous (talk) 06:16, 27 January 2015 (MST)
