The Werewolf Game / TWG XCIX: That Woomy Game Postgame
« on: February 08, 2018, 04:51:20 AM »
Sorry for the wait, guys. Without further ado,

TWG: That Woomy Game

1. Trasdegi
2. Brawler4Ever
3. BlackDragonSlayer
4. mikey
5. BrainyLucario
6. SuperMarina
7. Celirra
8. E. Gadd Industries (Pearl)
9. Raeko (Marina)

Two octolings have disguised themselves as inklings and are hidden among them. If left un-splatted, they’ll surely plot to steal the Great Zapfish: the source of all power in Inkopolis.

This game starts on a night phase (normal). During the night phases octolings agree on a single inkling in which to splat (kill). During day phases everyone votes on a player to splat.

This game has two special roles: the two trendy idols from Off the Hook: Pearl and Marina. Both are seers. Pearl, the false-prophet, seers players the opposite color for which they are. However, if Pearl happens to seer Marina, they will appear blue. Marina is the true savior, so she seers players their correct color. Players with these roles are not told which idol they are, and are simply told that they are a member of off the hook. They do not know each other. Their abilities may begin night 2. The inklings and OtH idols win when both octolings are spatted. The octolings win when the number of living inklings (OtH included) are equal or less than them.

The tale of what happened:

TWG XCIX: That Woomy Game (in comic form)

tl;dr:
Night 1: BDS was wolf'd.
Day 1: SuperMarina was lynched.
Night 2: Raeko was wolf'd, E.Gadd seer'd Brawler
Day 2: Celirra was lynched.
Night 3: mikey was wolf'd
[close]

Sorry the game ended up being a bit unbalanced! I still had fun though and hope y'all did too! C;

Awards!

The Most Woomy Award goes to BOTH Celirra and SuperMarina! You two said "Woomy" the most this game (Thread and Discord). Woomy!

The MVP Award goes to Brawler4ever! Way to play like a champ! I don't think you were ever seriously suspected of being a wolf. Very well played!

The "Should've gone with my gut" Award goes to BrainyLucario! You were pretty on-point with some of your initial suspicions, even that weird night one lynch vote, even if it was probably just a lucky guess.

The "I got roasted" Award goes to mikey! Celirra lit you up in the discord chat on day two and you never really recovered from that. It was a shame, because if you could have simply supported your suspicions a bit better like he was asking you to, you two could have probably picked a better lynch target and not have been wolf-rushed.

Miscellaneous arrangements / Olimar12345's (mostly) VGM Lead Sheets
« on: January 12, 2018, 05:33:20 PM »
Hey guys. So I occasionally create lead sheets, usually for pieces that I end up arranging in some fashion more than just piano. I thought I'd share what I have with the internet so that maybe someone else could get use out of them too. The following lead sheets contain the transpositions C, Bb, Eb, and B.C.

[NDS] - Pokemon Diamond and Pearl - Jubilife City Lead Sheet
[PC] - Skullgirls - A Return To Normalcy Lead Sheet
[SNES] - EarthBound - Battle Against a Weird Opponent Lead Sheet
Steven Universe - Love Like You Lead Sheet

The following are only in one key, which varies.

[GCN] - Animal Crossing - K.K. Jazz - Lead Sheet
[GCN] - Animal Crossing - K.K. Swing - Lead Sheet
[NDS] - Pokemon Black and White - Anville Town Lead Sheet
[WiiU] - Super Mario 3D World - Chainlink Charge Lead Sheet
[Pixel Galaxy]
[Journey]



Unlike the above, I'm actually working on creating lead sheets of the vocal pieces from Splatoon and Splatoon 2 that include the lyrics in both English and Japanese:

[WiiU] - Splatoon - Tide Goes Out - Lead Sheet
[WiiU] - Splatoon - Bomb Rush Blush - Lead Sheet
[WiiU] - Splatoon - City of Color - Lead Sheet

[SW] - Splatoon 2 - Ebb & Flow - Lead Sheet

In progress:
-Ink Me Up
-Calamari Inkantation
-Color Pulse
-Acid Hues
-Muck Warfare

Also feel free to post or pm me with requests. If I feel like it, I might make it.

Site News / Happy New Year!
« on: January 01, 2018, 07:50:09 PM »
Happy New Year NinSheetMusic and all that follow us! 2017 was quite a busy year for us. Looking back, just this year we had 18 updates, some of which focused our efforts towards individual games or franchises including Chrono Trigger, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Donkey Kong 64, Super Mario Bros., and Metroid. 2017 also brought us new help in the updating staff with the additions of Static, Sebastian, and InsigTurtle, which we cannot be more thankful for. We left 2017 with 3627 total arrangements hosted on the site. Let's end 2018 with over 4000!

Arrangements & Submission / Announcement Regarding Medley Arrangements
« on: September 03, 2017, 09:12:15 PM »
Everyone please take a moment to reread the Formatting Guidelines, as the section on Medleys has been revised. User-created medley arrangements will no longer be accepted to the site. This hardly affects anyone though, since these are mostly a relic of the past. The medley section of the guidelines has been re-purposed for what we've been doing more of these days: Fanfare Collections, Variation-Style Medleys, and arrangements of tracks that are already medleys (such as ending credits themes). Below is the excerpt.

Medleys and Collections
  • For arrangements that contain a collection of fanfares, jingles, and other miscellaneous sounds used in-game, we ask that you format your arrangement in the following manner:
    • Each individual jingle must have its own time signature, key signature (if applicable), tempo marking, and dynamic indication preceding the track. It must also have a solid final bar line at its ending, and must not be connected to the following measure. Measure numbers should reset as a new song begins.
    • For collections containing more than three songs, make the arrangement title generic (such as "Fanfares Collection") and specify the individual song titles just above the Right Hand of their first measure. Here in an example of this style of formatting.
    • For collections containing three or fewer songs, you may either format the arrangement the way previously mentioned OR create an additional header for each song. These added headers must include the song title and game title with the standard formatting procedures. Only include additional composer/arranger information if it differs between songs. If it is too long to include all of the song titles (each separated with a "/"), a generic compilation title may be used for on-site purposes only. Here in an example of this style of formatting.
  • For medleys that include multiple variations of a single song from a game, make sure you include the name of each new variation in the medley just above the Right Hand as it appears. Indenting the system that starts the new variation is optional. Here in an example of this style of formatting.
  • For medleys that are prearranged into a single song in-game (such as credits themes) it will not be mandatory that you list out all of the track names as they occur. However, if you as the arranger would like to do so, you are free to.

All user-created medleys that were once hosted on the site have been removed and will be housed here if anyone would like to download them.

General / Olimar Talks Games
« on: June 27, 2017, 11:40:59 PM »
This is where I'll post my game-related rambles. Sometimes it'll be a review, other times maybe not.



I'd like to start with Cave Story for Switch, since I've just beaten it to another, three-ending, bloody pulp.

I just want to start by saying that I am already a big fan of Cave Story and Daisuke Amaya's things, as you can quote from anywhere on this forum. Adding to this fact, I generally prefer my playthroughs to be more original-oriented than new/"updated," in terms of how Nicalis likes to spit-shine these already great games with more detailed graphics and altered music. The new sprites they've made look nice, and the remixed music isn't bad (I'll touch more on these topics below), but if given the choice I'd opt for the classics.

Rather than waste your time with another review of a game we all already know, I just wanted to talk about the differences/changes they made for this version. I'll also post about what all this iteration includes in case you're wondering. Below is everything that I noticed was different with the game when compared to previous playthroughs. This might not be definitive so feel free to leave a comment if I missed something.

Visual Differences
-The biggest blow is that there is no classic sprite option. Seriously, I've checked everywhere and gotten every ending; it's just not there. The missing option to have it isn't game-breaking in the slightest, it would have just been nice to include. Even cave story 3D let you use the 2D sprites in the new 3D rendered levels (a la paper mario), which was badass. Similar treatment here would have been nice to have, especially for those of us who prefer the original, simplistic designs.
-Water and lava throughout the game now looks and acts more like a liquid rather than it's previous slight color filter. The it moves and wakes when you touch it and they've added visual distortion which actually looks pretty cool. I'm not too big of a fan of the way the lava looks (see the last cave). It's just transparent, red-tinted water, and it loses the immediacy that it once had in previous renditions.
-Sprite animations have been added for the dialogue, which I think looks fantastic. Fits right in.
-They've also added this lighting effect that basically darkens everything and adds a bit of radiance to you, so you tend to light up the area you occupy. If I remember correctly, your weapon's bullets do the same. I'm indifferent, it's hardly noticeable.

Audio Differences
-With each new iteration of Cave Story comes some new fiddling around with the music. This time they've added what they call the "Famitracks." This version is the original music using the Famicom sound chip, and I've got to say, I think it's pretty rad. Below is a comparison:
Original
[close]
Famitracks Ver.
[close]
-Right out of the box all four versions of the soundtrack (original, +(wiiware), remastered(3D/+), and Famitracks) are available for you to choose, as well as to swap out whenever desired. The Jukebox (sound test) is also available from the start, and like in previous versions adds tracks as you encounter them in the game. (After completing hell I think it just gives you Toroko's theme and White (King's Theme). Prior you had to beat hell with certain record speeds to unlock these tracks, but they were added to my jukebox simply upon completion of the final ending).
About the jukebox:
-The Wind Fortress music is the same for the +(WiiWare) and Remastered versions, but the music is native to the remastered ost (Wind Fortress wasn't included in the wiiware version).
-The track White doesn't loop correctly for the + version, and unlike everything else from that soundtrack it isn't completely rearranged (sounds more like the percussive stuff was just tweaked). If I remember correctly, it also wasn't included in the wiiware version, so Yann van der Cruyssen probably didn't even create a new version.

Gameplay/Story Differences
-Control-wise, they've added a strafe mechanic that locks your target direction, allowing you to focus on the target while moving. It's absolutely necessary for Ballos's first form. You activate it by pressing LZ or RZ, so if you're not a fan of it you can ignore it just fine.
-You can now stack Jellyfish Juice in order to reduce the amount of backtracking in the Bushlands. To be honest, I didn't even realize this until leaving the Bushlands, because the way this was originally designed allowed you to always be passing by the big jelly when you needed it. I should have seen how many you could carry at once, but I didn't.
EDIT: Just a little update: you can only stack two jellyfish juices. Chako's text is altered to confirm this.
-The Sandzone Jenka dog hunt part has been altered substantially. Now, like the jellyfish juice, you can stack Jenka's dogs. Also, the dog that previously hung out near the door to the warehouse now hangs out above that area, on the way to Omega. The pros: if you would prefer to round them all up first, you can do so without having to stop by Jenka each time or making the long trek to and back from the warehouse. The con is that now upon returning all of the five dogs (either all at once or individually (yes I tried both)), Jenka will akwardly tell you to leave her house and reenter, which will cause the Balrog scene to occur. Previously, this scene would just happen upon returning the last dog. Between the two, I'd prefer the way it originally was because it just works better. Also, while traveling to the dog near the warehouse might have been considered a chore before, it was necessary to familiarize yourself with sandzone. To players starting with this version, one won't even know where Balrog escapes to once he steals the key, unlike before when you can get their ASAP since you've been there already.

-As for the button layout, you have the option to swap the jump and fire buttons, in case you didn't grow up playing video games and don't know which is supposed to be which. In my opinion, I think the WiiWare version was the most satisfying to play because the buttons on the controller were horizontal, like an NES controller (which is what I prefer for these types of games).

Challenges:Listed below are the included extra challenges that you unlock one at a time by playing the main game. Beat hell and you'll unlock them all. Your best completion times are recorded and there's an online leaderboard (both friend-wide and worldwide). A minor complaint about this menu is that if you press back after selecting an option, it returns you to the top of the list rather than the option you were on. Often times I pressed back and input the direction for the option I wanted to select only accidentally select the wrong one because of this. It's weird.

-Machine Gun Challenge lets you play as Curly with the machine gun and booster 2.0. Race to the finish through an easy handful of levels. I was able to run through it on my first try, so unlike the following challenges this one isn't that difficult.
-Sandpit lets you play as Quote with only the fireball through a sandzone/labyrinth-esque series of levels. I haven't beaten this yet and am not sure if I care enough to do so. It's okay so far.
-Sanctuary Time Attack lets you replay through the Hell level of the main game. You can choose your setup and order of weapons beforehand though. Interesting enough, you can choose both the sword and the nemesis (which, in game would be an either-or decision). You cannot choose both the polar star and the spur though (not that you would want to).  My only two complaints about this mode are that 1) they don't give you the option to choose the snake or the machine gun, two guns that you usually don't use in this level which would make perfect sense to have them isolated from the game so that you could try them here, and 2) just like previous rereleases, once you die you go all the way back to the screen where you have to select your weapons. This is shit because, like anyone who has played and beaten hell can tell you, when you die you want to get right back into it ASAP. Nothing is worse than curbing your in-the-zone-ness with the monotonous re-selection of your previous setup. This screen where you select your items from should only appear once at the very beginning when you select this mode. There's no need for it to return after every death in a mode that is made to be extremely death-inducing. It's bullshit, and I'd rather just play this on my main save.
-Boss Attack is exactly as I remember it from previous versions.
-Wind Fortress is exactly how I remember it. Weirdly enough, in this mode you star with both the 290 counter and the booster 2.0, but neither appear in your inventory. An oversight, perhaps? When I pick up the map system in the first room, it appears in my inventory...
-Nemesis Challenge I think was in the steam version, which I passed up. Oddly, here both the 290 counter and the booster appear in your inventory upon startup. Huh.

Curly Story is it's own thing outside of the challenge menu and appears to be the same as in the wiiware version. I like that you get multiple saves for both the standard and curly modes.

Lastly, there's talk of a future co-op mode being implemented in a coming update. I have no idea how far they're going to go with it, but that sounds rad, especially since with the switch I'll always have two controllers on me.

In my final thoughts, I think I would still prefer the 3DS eShop version of Cave Story, because it is compact, simple, more faithful to the original with additions that only add to the experience and can be disabled upon request, and the price is right. The Switch version is still pretty legit though, and being only $30 with all the free stuff you get makes it worth it to me, I think.

Nintendo / Nintendo SNES Classic Announces, and holy shet
« on: June 26, 2017, 07:53:16 PM »
Last time on dragon ball Z, Nintendo made the NES classic and it was awesome but impossible to obtain. THIS JUST IN: Nintendo just announced the SNES CLASSIC and it looks to be even more stellar and will probably be even harder to obtain. The line up includes EarthBound, Super Metroid, Yoshis Island, Super Mario World, Zelda alttp, etc. and holy shit: Star Fox 2: the game that never came out.

Edit: some specs:

-Releases 9/29
-21 games total
-$80
-Ships with two controllers

Archive / Call for New Updaters!
« on: June 17, 2017, 03:01:11 AM »
Greetings all! The updating staff is looking to add one updater to the team. This time we'll be trying something a little different though: rather than having us reach out to individuals, we'd like interested individuals to contact us. We would like to see if anyone here would be interested in helping out with sheet-reviewing and site updating (yes, the dirty work!). Keep in mind though, the things we would be looking for include some of the following:

-General free time to spend helping others
-A fair background of music theory/aural skills (you don't have to be a doctoral student at a university, simply being in school band or orchestra (etc.) would suffice. you're always learning/improving!)
-familiarity of the NSM formatting standards
-A higher version of finale would be extremely useful. You'll need something Printmusic or higher to be efficient.
-Willingness to work with others and communicate in a group chat (discord, skype, etc.)

If this sounds right up your alley or even think it is something you could see yourself doing, shoot me a PM (cc Latios, Maelstrom, Static, Bespinben, JDMEK5). We'll probably leave this topic up for a week or two to gauge interest before making any decisions. Disclaimer: there is no guarantee that we will add someone. We might also add no one; we're just interested in seeing who would be interested out there.

Remember: THIS IS NOT A CONTEST. We aren't looking for the "best arranger of all time," and this isn't just a chance to win a fancy forum title (although they are pretty fancy...). This is more of a chance to grow as a musician through analysis as well as working with others wishing to grow/improve in the same way.

Re-purposing this thread for miscellaneous covers I do.


"Hooked" from Splatoon


Euphonium Covers (audio only)

Feel free to leave suggestions for future covers. I try to make this a quick little project that I can do in one sitting though, so overly complicated suggestions will probably not be chosen lol.
