FAIRY POKEMON CONFIRMED, will now be the only type I ever use.
CAT MARIO! I’m really tired of Mario games to be honest, but that new one actually looks quite interesting.
I really wanted a new FZero game. Got Mario Kart in the style of FZero. Close enough I guess?
DONKEY KONG! I really wanted a new Metroid (REALLY WANTED), but I can dig Donkey Kong too.
That new thing by Monolithsoft, with the mechs and massive creatures, looked quite cool
SMASH BROS. Animal Crossing Villager as a new character? Cool, I guess…
No wait, MEGAMAN? Much better!
Overall, I’m happy with that. I wanted other things, but got some other, interesting games instead.
As fun as the PS4/XboxOne shenanigans are, it’s Nintendo time!!!
Then $549 for the PS4 in Australia???
Too early, ArtAttack, too early.
The next album is going to be the new peak. We made an enjoyable album, and we made an album with musical essence intact…
I have decided the new music direction for the album. Textbook music theory, Strict production quality, it will be a true test of composition and production skills. If your song gets in, you will want to seriously consider pushing a non-pony version to a label. A true and intimidating test.
If it releases with just 2 songs, then that’s what happens.
There’s no release date set. The music community is not ready for this album. It needs to evolve and grow some more before we can snap that Balloon Party “apex” in half.
The judging will be open to public eye and only employ the more experienced faces of this scene. I’d like to ask musicians like Dr. Dissonance or Fimbulin the Parasprite to cover the composition while Lavender Harmony or HMage could rate the production quality. There will likely be other aspects of the album to fill, but for now, these albums need to be put to a rest and focus needs to shift towards developing ourselves. This album will happen, and you will want to be ready for it while you have fun making music.
Honestly, I think Art’s post comes a little late, but it’s apt. I’ve felt the way he described for a very long time, about 8 months in fact, if not a little longer.
I saw my name!
I haven’t really been paying much attention to R&R, besides the hilarious double meaning in Aussie slang, but for some reason, I was in the R&R Skype and what Lav said pretty much sums it up.
People weren’t learning from each other. Even amateurs have their opinions that need sharing and sometimes they spot things that even I, a veteran of the I vi IV V chord progression, might miss. So people need to work together more if they want to succeed.
Having judges for the final product is fine and all, but what about everything in between? Personally, for me and Balloon Party, the journey was far greater than the outcome. I didn’t get in to BP, but I didn’t care, because I had a blast and learned new things during the creation of my piece.
That’s what the 3rd album in the series needs back: the experience of writing for it.
(As an extra, I’d be happy to judge for it, although I doubt I’d submit anything myself. An idea could be to offer deadlines for drafts and have people offer feedback, both experienced and amateur. I help out a number of people over email/skype and we usually have a fair few feedback sessions before their piece is actually finished. These multiple sessions help them immensely and might break the barrier Lav was talking about with the fear of theory and so on.)
Allow me to tell you a story.
Once upon a time, a recent university graduate decided to take a break from working all day and night to play some games. His Steam rating had gone down to 0.3; a blasphemous act. So he bought Metro Last Light.
As it was downloading, another game caught his eye: Dust: An Elysian Tail. He remembered seeing it ages ago when it came out on Xbox Arcade, but had long forgotten about it. Being a stinge, $13.50 was a high price for something he hadn’t done due research on, but he took the risk and bought it anyway.
Multiple days later and he hasn’t touched Metro and completed Dust up to 115%. I’m about to explain why past the break.
Sure, the easy way is to do the following:
1) In the script section, type:
set_ui_height_px(*height of wallpaper in pixels*)
(If you want to add knobs, settings, etc, that’ll take more than a simple answer on tumblr to explain!)
2) After that, click the ‘instrument options’ button and change the instrument wallpaper to what you want.
That’s the easy, simple way of putting a wallpaper on it, the harder way (but more efficient for distributing) way is to create .nkr files and such. Again, need more space than a Tumblr answer!
All other GUI stuff is mostly done via scripting. Knobs, sliders, fancy animations, etc.
*edit* Herp this was meant to be private, so Las would actually see it…
