      You know, ever since I got Shreddage 2X (a couple days ago), I have been practicing with virtual amps. I've gotten better at using them~

        Also, no. Sorry, but this music can't be used in any project ever. Enjoy the music everyone!

      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.

        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!

      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.

        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.

        Maybe. I want that animation pack since I knew about it a LONG time ago since I spoke to the creator himself about something in one of the packs and if there would be another pack coming out.

        Yeah, I had to limit the dialogue to fit in the space required by Fes, but it was fun. I intend to finish it and release it to the public so that anyone that has the Fes Player, or the software itself, can try it out.

      You know, making a game in Fes takes a heck of a lot more time, but less time at the same time...er, because no custom resources or plugins.

        Honestly, I like the limitations since it forces you to actually make a game rather than dress it up, but then again, as I said, that also makes it more difficult to do certain things. Still, though, it's an interesting adventure so far.

        Ikr, I've had lots of fun with rpg maker 2003, the menu system, battle system, hud systems, message system,... But it was ton of work. Programming really simplifies it for me.

        For example if I wanted to show gold in my custom menu, I needed number sprites or pictures and then boom. 36 event pages dedicated to just number graphics. And with MV... 2 lines of code. let gold = new PIXI.Text($gamePlayer._gold, style); SceneManager._scene.addChild(gold);

        I've always wanted the ME's from DS to be released in some way, shape or form so that I can remaster them. Fes has now allowed that, so that makes me happy...now if only they'd release the DS+ exclusive music...

        I actually got lucky and had recieved my LE (Limited Edition) preorder copy of FES the day before scheduled release due to a mailing error on NIS's part, so I got about a 12-hour head start when it came to learning FES's controls and such.

    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)
