Man, coding in GML is so much easier than Ruby/JS. Still, I long for the ease of RM...sigh Aug 17, 2018 at 2:35 PM

      Messing around with SNES music a lot lately. I'm hoping to start finally composing my own music soon and in this format. :D

      For those that don't know, I finally moved into a new home. That means I can get back to the XP remasters I was working on. @_@

        Noice! Still working on my MV-remaster of my Fes game myself, and the large monitor my new computer has really helps in spotting the smaller errors I might have missed.

      Might do a stream of RPG Maker Fes later and how to create a game in it. Limited, but fun, I think.

        Custom instruments were created to not infringe on the copyright placed on the original samples. The music was made using 100% custom samples and emulated GB square channels that emulated the Gameboy's original sound chip. Once I have the hardware, I can use authentic Gameboy square waves piped through an original Gameboy (grey box) and fed back into the music.

        Man, the music loop points are non-existent. Or, rather, they don't work. I will have to reference the ones from the 3DS version and figure out the proper loop points for the pack. Lordy. Well, at least it gives me something to do while I wait to hear about the apartment we applied for!

        For me, more than anything, it's the ME's, or, jingles. They are the ME's from the original DS game and I want them so I can remaster them. Second to that, the tiles.

        There are worse than that. I've seen a channel where it was 30% actual content and the rest sponsored stuff, he introduced like four sponsors per video. And not that his videos have been of high quality... For some reason though, people still kept admiring his work in the comment section.

      Trying to rework the Ace DS tiles into 24x24 tiles again is annoying, but until I can afford the Fes tiles, gotta do it. Fun stuff. :guffaw:

        The funny part is that some were heavily edited while others were left alone from the original DS sizes. Still, in order to make a compliant version that isn't composed of rips, gotta go the extra mile and attempt to rework them into the original sizes, even if they look a bit different.

    My name is djDarkX, but you can just call me Dark, or dj or even just hey you!


    My main focus is on music reproduction, or re-arrangements of other people's music, most notably in the field of JRPG console music from the days of the NES, SNES, Genesis, N64 and some from the Playstation. I don't limit myself to JUST JRPG music as I've done renditions from shmup titles like U.N. Squadron, racing games like Mario Kart Advance, obscure platformers like Ardy Lightfoot and more. I'm not much of an original composer yet, but I'm working on it! I also deal in graphics and used to do minor script edits. Maybe one day when I learn Javascript more, I can make my own scripts that cater to retro game development.


    If you visit my site, you'll see what my list of re-arranged and remastered music is, but it doesn't contain EVERYTHING I've done as some of it I can't share, and some I just won't for various reasons.


    Commission Status: Unavailable (probably will never happen until I get better at original compositions, but that may change someday)

If you want to be friendly, talk music or just get to know me better without any ulterior motives, contact me on one of those platforms I currently use with a note about who you are on the forums.
