      If you're still working on RMXP remasters, can I request Field 3 next?

        It's taarna.3016, I think. I literally just logged out for bed and I'm not logging back in to check, haha. If that's not it and I go and forget all about it, just ping me on here again and I'll find out. X3

      You know, the old SNES game Secret of the Stars may have been very generic & badly written, but some of the music is good...if you coax it.

        Agreed :) also if you've never seen this:
        you should give it a go despite the bad audio

      Man, coding in GML is so much easier than Ruby/JS. Still, I long for the ease of RM...sigh

      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.

      Remastered, and kind of remixed, Last Battle from the original PC version of Cave Story. Oh lord, my ears...just epic...surprised, really.

        Context on my last little blurb. It came out better than my initial attempt and far exceeded my expectations. So yeah, surprised by how good it actually is.

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

      A taste of the GBA conversion of the DS music. This music will not be released, sorry.

        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!

        Love the fes pack. Bought it purely for the portraits and battlers but the whole thing turned out pretty nice.

      Harharhar...the issue I was having with GBA audio is no longer an issue. Found a way to emulate it very well and use the GB sound chip.

        Believe me, the battlers are worth any wait at the very least. They were a huge selling point to me. :x

        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.

    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)
