masterkhufu id love to hear some of ur music! i think it would be just as entertaining to work WITH u to help out dan ;)


Well, for the rules, i wouldn't really agree to well on them. As i want music made freely, rather then music made for a contest. Not saying i wont want music from a contest, i just mean id rather music made with no limitations. Rather then you making a tune were your only allowed to use 1 instrument, i dont want that, i just want something normal :D

Like the tune you made so far sonny.
So for all the limitations for the music, thats up to you what you do.
As it weren't my idea. I just basicly want you to freely make some good tunes :D
So dont make any rules that limits you, thats what i mean.

And no memory size im not trying to keep low. Make it as large as you need to :D
And yup i want looping songs, but that doesn't mean the song needs to be the same rythm so that it sounds correct when it loops. I dont specificly need that, i just basicly want a song, and i can loop it myself in maps.
So just ignore the whole loop thing :D Just basicly try to make the songs really long if you can ;)

Thanks
-Dan

Re: Music contest.

haha, i'm sorry fearsonny, i wasn't thinking about your custom sounds. when i write music, i usually work with instruments from an orchestra with sheet music, so, just sort of a habit to think that everyone writes music that way :P

yeah, the instrument limitation wouldn't be fair. but as far as duration and looping stuff goes, that would be all up to dan.

and i'd like to work with you too to help him out.

i've been working on some ideas for a fire world. i've got some raunchy ideas for a brass ensemble, but not sure if i want to add some strings, like "ride of the valkyries-esque."

Umm, the sounds ingame will be looped. But you dont neccesarily need to make them looped yourselves, like for instance you dont need to make the end of a song sound the same beat as the start of a song. That doesn't matter. I will loop it myself ingame. But just basicly make it a real long tune, so yes, if you need to then loop it :D

And i'd love to hear some of your tunes for a fire world :D
The only real thing i can say is, when you make the tunes based on a mood, for instance your thinking of a fire one, so that doesn't mean it has to be a dark scary tune :D the only guidline you should stick to is make the tune calm and relaxing. Not scary sounding, because i dont want to frighten the player :o :t3razz:

So yup, just basicly long and relaxing tunes :t3cool:

Re: Music contest.

ah, well that's very helpful. when you said fire, i started thinking of scary walls of flames and stuff. but relaxing is good too.

nice to have a direction from the artist.

Re: Music contest.

Idea here.
I can build a logic system so that the player can pick which songs he wants to hear while playing. In addition I could make it so when he gets to the fire world, the fire track is unlocked. And so on.

Only restriction is that he would have to get to the very end of the mod, then get sent back to the begining, in order to have all the songs in the 1st map.

There's no need. As there will be more then 1 map per stage. +The chapters are going to be selectable in their own choice. Im not making them play through each 1, 1 after the other.

Re: Music contest.

Zentech mod is still pressing foward. Although I havent hardly had any time to work on it. Actually I've had so much around the hosue to do that at least 50% of whatever free time is left on the computer goes toward helping other people and posting of forums.
And to add to that Ross scot needs me to build / fix up some more maps for his combine videos. This time he is doing some kind of contest.
But yes, Zentech is still progessing, and I have some news that I might as well go ahead and post. Check out the Zetnech forum.
