Guess what! School! Yay! That's already 9 hours of my day in class and on the bus. That means time to learn how to use LaTeX and latex and other such university-related things.
I'm also gonna see what I can do with them clubs, which will munch munch munch away at my time. Once I get in the flow, I'll be more active, I promise!

So of course, the winner this time is... [insert name here]

Here were all the hints requested!
Spoiler
2 - Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? It's a bird! It's a plane! It's 7 GRAND DAD. The game's on a handheld console!
3 - Instead of a hint, I’m going on an adventure. Probably down to the valley where they do lots of farming. Bye. The game’s on a regular console!
5 - What time in the game does this play? At high noon Well, not in a level itself. You probably only hear the first part most of the time. The game’s on a regular console!   
6 - Hmph. Glad you asked. This track has an electric guitar in it, giving it an edgy vibe at times. The game’s on a handheld console!
7 - This game is… a bit old, but not old enough to be an artifact or anything. This music is pretty dry. The game’s on a handheld console!
9 - Knock knock! Turn off the light, it's time for you to go. Any more hints would make this too obvious. The game’s on a regular console!

Now that you know the answers, you can see that the hints are... a bit obvious now!
So, congrats to [insert name here] for winning with a score of [insert score here]!

And the 18th melody... was it unfair? Well, that's why the hints were there. And if you gave an alternate title for melodies 1-13, I would tell you the one I wanted. And nobody even requested a hint for it! Oh well, that's it for today! See ya... maybe next year or something!

I have a couple of questions about the "weird sig" idea:

Do uncommon divisions of a common time signature count? Constantly switching time signatures, common and/or uncommon? Would the goal be to make the time signature sound natural or intentionally jarring?

A couple of things:
- Check m.1-4 and related measures (9-12, 37-40) for the RH notes
- For m.8 it'd seem more practical to have the E's be played by the LH and the eighth notes by the RH, although you don't need to
- Clashing slurs with accents on m.19-20 and m.47-48
- The G in m.30 sounds like it should be an A

Other than that, looks good!

Just a beep-beep to remind y'all to participate in my quiz if you haven't done so already! And you can still use your hints on anything you want!

C to Ab flat isn't all that dissonant, though.
Not dissonant, but distant. If anything, I wish he'd use more dissonance. I don't have an issue with using borrowed chords but I feel he overuses them for the same effect each time.

I'm not really a fan of a lot of Grant Kirkhope's music. That's not to say that he isn't talented. I just don't like the playful tone he likes to use with his sudden somewhat-distant chord changes (like C - Ab - C) and his instrumentation. I do like his work in Goldeneye and Perfect Dark, though. It's like how I'm not a fan of most Baroque composers yet it's still possible to appreciate the artistry there, and there are quite a few Baroque pieces that I like.

David Wise, though. I like him.

I've gotten different results every time I've taken it. I've gotten INTP-A, ENTP-A, INFP-A, ENFP-A, and perhaps other ones that I don't remember, just going by screenshots. Maybe it just depends on how I'm feeling that day.

I can't even open the PDF with my phone for Insig's quiz.

Uh oh. I tried opening the file on my phone, and it worked. I don't know why it'd be incompatible on your side...

Anyways, requested hints!

4 people have submitted so far, current scoreboard is still up here! Which, according to Google Sheets, is unavailable. Uh, hold on.

So. This will probably be my last melody quiz (for a while, at least) due to business and busyness. So there's a catch this time. The last melody, you'll have to figure out with only the first note, which might or might not be wrong. Sound stupid? Yeah, it is. But perfectly doable. Also, I'd advise you to send in guesses as soon as you get them. This time, everyone gets one hint that'll be shared with everyone so everyone can be happy together with everyone. Hints will be posted on the oh-so-lovable scoreboard, along with an update here.

Hints for #18 so it isn't impossible right now. Don't overthink it, it's just what it says on the package:
- The first note might or might not be correct
- The key signature and time signature might not be correct
- There might be hints hidden throughout the previous melodies
- To help with getting 18, some melodies might be repeated from previous quizzes

Quiz!
Scoreboard!

Oh, I agree, and I added a performance note to acknowledge your point about the offbeat
