    Thanks, updated with correct link.
     
  4. Anyone know when or how the default music will be selected? Will it be a vote? After having gone through a few of them I think a few tracks stand out as clearly superior. To be honest, even though a vote is probably the way it ought to go, I am less democratic minded in this regard as I feel a lot of people may just choose a particular track for the wrong reasons. ScubaSteve's latest CPZ v3.3 found here, <a href="http://forums.sonicretro.org/index.php?showtopic=10482&st=2280" target="_blank">http://forums.sonicretro.org/index.php?sho...482&st=2280</a> is by far the best version of CPZ so far, however I don't think the introduction and conclusion will work in the game. I encourage him to keep working on it, as his latest version, which is not posted on this page, is currently superior to the others.

    A vote sounds like a decent enough idea. Maybe a vote to see which are most popular and then the final say could be a vote between the major people on the project.

    Whichever ones are used, they are all extremely excellent. Especially the music for Metropolis by Ransom Rath. It's such a killer tune.

    I've gone over this in the new music topic's OP, but I'll reiterate here:

    <b>When you post a submission, it must be in [zone name] [version #] [your name] format</b>. I've got everything organized on my drive as backup, and I don't want any more confusion around who submitted what, and how many revisions they've put into a piece.

    I don't think ogg vorbis files support id tags.

    Actually, OGG files support them. I'm not sure what players do, however, I certainly know that Winamp does.

    I use Winamp as my default player. When a track just lists 'Minor Fixes IV' for the title and 'Hidden Palace Version 7' for both the artist and album artist, there's not much that can be done to figure out who did it this long after its initial submission. Thus, people can put their names into the filename itself. It's a simple addition and makes things simpler to organize. It's not that much to ask.

    So with Sanik not hosting anymore, do we have these files elsewhere?

    I seem to be having problems connecting to sanik.hacking-cult.org at the moment - I keep getting a connection timeout.

    I'm surprised there isn't more of Tweaker's music in the appproved list. That man does epic music (IMO)!

    Without listening to the exact pieces you're referring to, all I can tell you is that the ones not on the list did not have the qualities we were looking for in music for the game. Once it meets the basic criteria outlined for them, it must also be highly gameplay worthy; not everything that listens well makes for a good gameplay track. My personal metric for that has been to fire up a video of a given zone being played, mute the sound, and play the relevant submitted piece over the top. If it's jarring/distracting from the gameplay, it doesn't make the approval list.

    Yeah, dudes, I just checked on the database and it seems to load now. It wasn't last night, so it must've been some downtime.

    About Tweaker's stuff, he hasn't actually submitted anything serious to this in quite some time, so his stuff probably just got outshined by something else. That and the only songs I recall him submitting were for Emerald Hill. I'm sure he'll probably pop in here and correct me if I'm wrong, though.
