        Thanks for the compliment. I appreciate it. I put lots of love into any work I do, so hopefully it shows! :D

        I like it! It reminds me a lot of Final Fantasy Tactics. It's very dynamic and epic but also sort of uplifting and hopeful.

        Well, the music is from the XP RTP, but in MIDI form it isn't living up to it's true potential and I've always felt the Remastered OST in the store fell flat. I was going to replace it with an updated version, but I lost all the work I had over two years ago, so they got someone else to work on the more "troubled" pieces. I'd like to think I bring something a bit different to the table. :)

      I might need to start investing in sleeping pills because lately I wake up far before the time I should be and can't go back to sleep...

        I agree that trying for better sleep habits is a better idea first. Sleep meds tend to sacrifice deeper sleep for longer sleep. Try keeping those daytime naps at no longer than 15 minutes too, that might be what's throwing your rhythms off.

        Well, I only nap if I haven't slept that long the night before and I'm very drowsy. So far, I'm still awake, so that's a plus and hoping I can make it until the evening and get a good nights rest, but I guess we'll see. @_@

        One of the problems with many (most?) sleeping pills is that they get you off to sleep, but don't keep your asleep. So if your problem is waking up too early, then meds might not help anyway.

      Due to getting a new modem/router from Comcast, my ISP, site is down until further notice...grumble grumble...

      So done with Comcast. For those outside the States, it's a large ISP for us that is not always known for stable connections...
      1. djDarkX
        djDarkX
        Looks like our modem might be dying, which sucks. The worst part about it is that we have to change to their modem/router combo, but then I'm tied to their rather limited port forwarding or forced IPv6 addresses, which makes it MUCH harder to host anything.

        @Guiguimu Thanks a bunch! That one was actually something a friend made I just remastered it. He and his girlfriend were very happy with the results, but I think I can make it even better. At least I know where ti find it again.

        My thoughts exactly, Susan. It's why I, mostly, can't change over. There are still some things I HAVE to use in Windows, like the Composer Cloud instruments since iLok won't work with it and not sure it will work with a virtual environment.

        Plus, some games I've been dying to play are Windows only, but that is starting to become a relic since a lot of games are being ported to or being made cross-platform these days, so awesome.

    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.
