Forum Games / Re: The NSM Triweekly Guess-That-Melody Quiz!
« on: September 19, 2017, 12:32:42 AM »
Man, I should have done this one; I would have gotten at least 5 correct.

Why not do mine, then?

  • One person has 1 out of 3 Kirby melodies. (Where's Levi when you need him?)

As another note regarding my quiz, I'm somewhat debating whether or not this Easy version will actually count for points or if it'll just be a fun little bonus game that doesn't count for the official round before I post the answers, but in the latter case answers for the Easy round would still be accepted and tallied separately.

So you know how I said there was going to be no hint system? I changed my mind.

THE HINT SYSTEM
Unlike my previous quizzes, you won't be able to ask for a single melody. Instead, you will pick five melodies that you haven't gotten correct yet, and I'll reply to you with the consoles of origin for those five games, in a randomized order. (See the earlier Console Count section for my rules on consoles of origin.)

Since this probably won't be enough to raise scores significantly, you'll still be seeing that easy version sometime later, where melodies will count for half-credit only.

Stay tuned; an extended/hint quiz version will probably be coming tomorrow or Wednesday (not sure if I'll get around to it tomorrow, so if I have to finish it Wednesday I'll leave my round open Thursday), like I did in my first quiz. They'll count for half a point each if you choose to use it and get more.

Eight people have submitted guesses (or just plain ol' singular guess) now, and 18 out of 33 melodies have been correctly guessed. Among the eight participants who actually recognized anything, the average score is a (oof) 3.25.

Scoreboard Update #2
Black = 0 people
Red = 1 person
Orange = 2 people
Yellow = 3 people
Green = 4 people
Blue = 5 people
Purple = 6 people
Pink = 7+ people (lol nothing will make it here)

TOTAL SCOREBOARD:

1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9  10  11  12  13  14  15  16  17  18  19  20  21  22  23  24  25  26  27  28  29  30  31  32  33  (SR1P)

Elite 4 Series Only:

2  3  7  9  11  12  14  15  17  22  25  29  (SR1P)

Miscellaneous Games/Series Only:

1  4  5  6  8  10  13  16  18  19  20  21  23  24  26  27  28  30  31  32  33
[close]

As I customarily give, here are the top scores on each of the E4 series, not including the preview of Special Round 1 (and also not including Miscellaneous because that's like most of the quiz):
  • Four people have 1 out of 3 Mario melodies.
  • One person has 1 out of 3 Kirby melodies. (Where's Levi when you need him?)
  • Three people have 1 out of 3 Pokémon melodies.
  • One person has 2 out of 3 Zelda melodies.
Of these four main series, one has been guessed out completely, two have had two out of three guessed, and one has had only one out of three guessed (lol, I wonder which one that is).

And now for some assorted thoughts (with some small hints) on the ones nobody has guessed:

Random Unguessed Melody Comments
  • #6: There are at least two people who should definitely know this one. It's a game that's been used in quizzes multiple times before, too. It's a little tricky, but I'm rather surprised nobody has it... The next four measures are the exact same as the four I've transcribed.
  • #7: (E4) Maybe one of the more difficult ones in here, but it's bothering some people. The melody I transcribed loops twice, but the underlying chords are different the second time.
  • #8: Iconic, or so I thought. I don't think anyone here has played the game it was originally from, though (I haven't).
  • #10: This game has never been used in a quiz before, but I know a few people who have played it. Wish they knew it, but it's not extremely surprising that they missed it (especially compared to other melodies...). The melody loops a second time with slight variations.
  • #12: (E4) Has appeared in more than one game in the same series. Was hoping people could get it off other games, if not the original. Maybe not. The melody cuts off after the part I transcribed.
  • #15: (E4) I thought this one should've been guessed a long time ago, but it might be the short length screwing people over. The next four measures have the exact same rhythmic pattern, though the notes aren't the same.
  • #18: Nobody has this one? Color me surprised... If I of all people know this track I thought others would too. This game has been used numerous times in quizzes before... although, admittedly, it hasn't always been recognized.
  • #24: This game has been used in previous quizzes and multiple people have recognized the melody every time. Except now, of course >.>
  • #25: (E4) This is a track that you hear a lot during the game, but... whether or not people actually remember it appears to be a different story.
  • #26: Next four measures are the same. I guess this just isn't a very memorable track.
  • #27: Kind of an obscure/self-indulgent one, but I was hoping someone would get it. Probably not though :(
  • #28: Well-known game, obscure track. Not sure why I would know this over everyone else, though...
  • #30: O_O
  • #32: Self-indulgent one, and one of my favorite VGMs of all time. This was in fact originally slated to be in my very first melody quiz.
  • #33: See #18: "If I of all people know this track I thought others would too." Then again, it's not quite in-line with NSM's tastes, but... I don't know anything about the series either yet I've still heard of this track, sooo...
  • Preview of SR1: (E4) I would like to think that nobody's submitted a guess for this melody because they don't actually think they're supposed to submit a guess, because people should definitely know this one... Again, a game that has been used on quizzes multiple times before, and they've been guessed every time. Except now

I think I fucked up

I tried to make it decently hard and then it ended up mostly impossible

Okay, four people have submitted guesses so far. More than four people have looked at the whole quiz. There is currently a two-way tie for first.

Scoreboard Update #1
Black = 0 people
Red = 1 person
Orange = 2 people
Yellow = 3 people
Green = 4 people
Blue = 5 people
Purple = 6 people

And now, because I think people are in dire need of some hints, I will be posting this:

CONSOLE COUNT
Below is a tally of the number of games on each console in this quiz. Games will only be listed for the console they were first released for, even if they were remade on or ported to another console later. If a game was initially released on multiple consoles at the same time, it will only be listed as MUL. (Note: The following console count does not include the unscored preview of Special Round 1.)

NES - 3
SNES - 4
N64 - 1
GCN - 2
NDS - 6
Wii - 5
3DS - 2
WiiU - 1
PS1 - 1
PC - 5
MUL - 3

Somewhere over the rainbow, it is Monday...

MSF ROUND E  (because my numbering got all screwed up, so just roll with it, though I'm pretty sure this is supposed to be my ninth quiz)

Now, fair warning: this is a long and hard quiz. There's a huge variety of melodies here, and not a single one of them is popular or obvious. In essence, this is a quiz with no easy melodies--but most of the melodies are nowhere close to impossible, so everyone should be able to get at least a few. In short, this is a quiz about anything and everything. (Mostly everything... there were some series I wanted to include but didn't. Oh well.)

The series breakdown is as follows:
  • 3 Mario melodies
  • 3 Kirby melodies
  • 3 Pokémon melodies
  • 3 Zelda melodies
  • 21(!!!) Miscellaneous melodies, no two of which are from the same series
Yep, this quiz is a whopping ƎƎ melodies long--and with this plethora of games and songs, there should be at least a little bit for everyone in here. Now, some other stuff is below:

What does (E4) mean?
As this quiz is rather tricky, I've taken the liberty of implementing a bit of a hint in this quiz. Perhaps some of you might remember this quote by our friendly little neighborhood turtle?

What I've usually done, was to do equal proportions of Pokémon, Kirby, Mario, and Zelda, with some occasional extra tidbits thrown in, since those are the Elite 4 of Nintendo franchises. After all, this *is* NinSheetMusic, so it can't be unreasonable to include Nintendo melodies, right?

Now, as this is called Round E, I figured it was only fitting that I label all melodies from Mario/Kirby/Pokémon/Zelda with E4, an abbreviation of Elite 4. In other words, you now know exactly which melodies are and aren't from one of those four main series, to make this quiz just a liiittle bit more manageable for you all.

The Revised Scoreboard
As this quiz is more difficult than ones you've previously seen, I'm making a (most likely temporary) change to the scoreboard this round, where you will now know exactly how many people know each melody--because if I was still using the original version then you'd mostly see a random mix of red and green, and that probably wouldn't be too interesting.

Black = 0 people
Red = 1 person
Orange = 2 people
Yellow = 3 people
Green = 4 people
Blue = 5 people
Purple = 6 people
Pink = 7+ people (lol nothing will make it here)

1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9  10  11  12  13  14  15  16  17  18  19  20  21  22  23  24  25  26  27  28  29  30  31  32  33  SR1P

There is none! Good luck!

As a gamer who has played League extensively and has never seen nor touched DotA at all, I can proudly affirm that League is superior to DotA in every way.

I want to reiterate that the stars would be placed next to the name of the games, not next to the sheets themselves. If you find one or two sheets of poor quality in the game's section then you would already know that it's not worthy of a star and move on.

(I don't think these "shoddy stars" for poor sheets are necessary either, since the absence of a star already tells you that not all the sheets for the game are of good quality. It'd also look kind of bad, imo.)

Oh, also

Don't you love it when bugged Finale playback screws you over from getting a melody you know by heart
