Hi! I see you add more game soundtracks and thus getting better rank on this site! However, could you have no more than 6 screenies per page (because it's described in our rules page: Editing_Rules:_Games#Screenshots)? I think you add too much with logos. When you successfuly finalized a game page (having done its screenshots, recordings and album arts) you actually could add its link into the Latest Soundtracks section of the Main Page (even though not required, it is highly suggested). So, your recently added games might come there. Please also read this page VGMPF Album Art about our album art conventions (Oni (W32)'s album art doesn't properly meets the standards)

Oni (W32)


Thank you!, I speak Spanish although I know some English : ), I see that if I have gone too far with the logos, I will try not to add many, about the soundtrack I did not know what to put there in the rip but since you showed me that friend , I already found the way to use the page almost correctly. I will try to change those aspects that are still missing from the game Oni (W32).

Flashback: The Quest for Identity (SCD)

Hi, GatoVerde95. The recorded songs of Flashback: The Quest for Identity (SCD) seem to be lacking meta data. In order to work with the files properly I recommend you follow the steps in Adding Meta Data. foobar2000 is usually our best friend to add track number, album name etc.

Doing the stuff in Make List guide is also usefull to automatically assign filenames according to meta data. --Cancer (talk) 08:33, 9 February 2023 (EST)

Don't want to bother you another time, but I found several mistakes after I checked the updated Flashback files. The metadata should look like this:
Caption text
Name Value
Artist Name Fabrice Visserot, Jean Baudlot, Marc Minier, Patrick Sigwalt
Album Title FlashBack: The Quest of Identity (SCD)
Date 1994-??-??
Genre Video Game
Composer Fabrice Visserot, Jean Baudlot, Marc Minier, Patrick Sigwalt
Performer and Album Artist fields are usually not used. Custom fields like <OGGBY>,<SYSTEM_E> or <SYSTEM_J> should be cleared and never be used.
Disc Number and Total Discs are optional to use for this game. They are required only for those games that support different output throughout used audio cards or feature region-dependand (like PAL, NTSC etc.) audio that varies significantly.
You may add ARRANGER field if you want.--Cancer (talk) 14:46, 9 February 2023 (EST)
Alright! Things start to cheer up aftewards. If could please consider fixing The Quest of Identity (SCD) to The Quest for Identity (SCD) as the game name and do not use ands inside the Composer/Artist string value (use comma , instead) to make apprehensions best. --Cancer (talk) 11:57, 10 February 2023 (EST)
I rechecked again and saw the final differences. Have a nice day! --Cancer (talk) 15:24, 10 February 2023 (EST)

FLACs (and either MP3s, WAVs etc.) in a rip file

Unfortunately, I had to delete the music rip of JAG port of Flashback completely. Packing digital format songs in rips produces files of so huge sizes. Such means are actually not allowed on our site. The recordings you made (in the Recording section chart) is already in the proper lossy (Vorbis) form which is almost indifferent of the FLAC. --Cancer (talk) 07:56, 16 February 2023 (EST)

Current renames

WAIT! Please read Editing Rules: Titles#Capitalization on how files should be capitalized! I'm afraid that most of your current renames may be in vain. --Professor Chaos (talk) 15:18, 21 February 2023 (EST)

Thanks for replying!
  • About "not showing latest": Ah, I know the problem. I think you have to refresh the page (you know, press something like F5 or Ctrl+R in your browser).
  • About "deleting": You could ask User talk:TheAlmightyGuru (the owner of VGMPF) for the right to delete. (Nobody can delete initially, everybody (including myself) has to exercise on several pages and then can ask him for deletion right.) Until then, you can keep blanking deletable pages or ask me to delete. Maybe you can also ask others, but I let them speak for themselves. :-)

I think you explained correctly. Let me quote you:
I go to page display mode and the latest version is not shown, but rather the previous one, I thought it had not been uploaded but actually the latest version was there
Yes, exactly that happens to me too: Whenever I upload a new version of an existing screenshot or song, I first see the previous one. So I press F5, and then I finally see the latest one. If it does not work for you, maybe you can try logging out, clear the cache, exit your browser, and login again. I agree the wiki behaves confusing, but please don't move files because of that; only move if their titles are wrong. --Professor Chaos (talk) 16:22, 21 February 2023 (EST)

Avenging Spirit (GB)

Hey there. I was wondering who got the Arranger for Avenging Spirit? From what I remember, Ogata told me he did the music and sound programming (arranged his own music into the sound driver).

Also, the credits you list in the Credits section sometimes don't match up with the game/manual credits. For example, Yutaka Sakashita is not listed in the game's credits as arranger. What you can do in this case is, if Sakashita is the arranger, list them as Uncredited Arranger' or Not Credited Arranger, or their role listed in the game's credits, Programmer, and if you want, you can mention they are listed in the game's credits.

Thanks so much for your contributions!

Game Boy screenshots

Hi! I noticed that the screenshots you uploaded for Kirby's Dream Land (GB) and Avenging Spirit (GB) appear to have been upscaled in an emulator. Editing Rules: Graphics says that "screenshots must be in PNG format at the same resolution of the game in native mode (do not use scalers, anti-aliasing, color enhancement, etc.)" (emphasis added). In the Game Boy's case, that would be 160 x 144. (Compare this native resolution screenshot with one you uploaded - the latter is much bigger and also seems to use some sort of smoothing filter.)

I added the "Needs Pixel Perfect Screenshot" category to all of them accordingly, but I wanted to let you know here for the future. --Theand (talk) 20:12, 27 May 2023 (EDT)
