mmm chicken, chicken and chips

*attempts to beat down first place*

*beats the shit out of second place instead*

thanks msf

It's been... a while. To say the least.

Rhythm Heaven Fever:

Now, what "FOLDER" means is that it links to a folder with MIDIs, PDFs and maybe MP3s. This is because I am completely sick of Finale NotePad and I have such higher standards than what can be provided on it. That being said, the main reason this sheet in particular has this is because I do not believe I could get tap dancing notation onto NotePad, without the tedious work I put into having it in on the MuseScore version multiplied by 2.

Anyway, this sheet was really fun to work on, and I did take some creative liberties with chords and stuff, but that's probably not the most NSM-illegal thing on it. The mental image of someone tap dancing while playing the piano part is humorous but it's probably better left as a mental image (unless someone wants to take up a challenge lol).

Also yes, I did research tap dancing, thank you very much. If I got something wrong though, I'll fix it soon.

Mario Karts:
 - Wii.
 - Any Mario Kart that allows you to honk your horn manually.
 - Everything else.

I don't know if it would be the best to divide them by consoles, but that might just be me.

I wholeheartedly agree with drop-down menus (that appear when you click/hover over the "Super Mario" link on the sidebar) that allow you to select between various parts of the whole franchise. It takes a little bit longer than I'd like for the whole section to load just so I can reach Super Mario 64.

Yes, that's correct. E# is the same as F. It's just written like that for certain situations. Similarly, Cb is B. After that there's double sharps and double flats but those probably won't be necessary right now lol. Have fun.

Oh I would've been perfectly fine with any other answer that used the motif the exact same way. Only one person gave an answer that did.

Plus being the first song and having appeared in Smash I figured some people would get it that way.

A few things about this quiz:
 - If there's a motif, I might want specifics (implying there is one, even though you don't necessarily know that).
tbh I probably scared people with this. I can't ask for specifics when a motif is used the exact same way multiple times, plus I was prepared to be quite lenient with this one (with a range of about 10BPM fast and slow).

So it was not the greatest idea to laugh about it, but I can't say I was completely unfair. I just needed a reasonably correct answer.

also Mael what even is this quiz

Well here we go I guess. Let's get the answers rolling. 7 people submitted guesses.

Hands-On Hall - Super Mario 3D World:

One of my favourites from 3D World's soundtrack, and hopefully this opinion is shared with the 2 people who guessed it.

Lady Cupid - Rhythm Heaven Fever:

Yeah so I guess I'm the only person who listens to the Rhythm Heaven Fever soundtrack religiously in-depth. Also I guess removing the middle voice might've screwed over some people.

Title Screen - Mega Man 4:

No, this wasn't because I like to be spiteful. I just picked this because it's a good underrated Mega Man title screen theme. Luckily that obvious 1 person got it.

Main Menu/Map - Hotel Mario:


Also 2 dank memers got this one.

Night Sakura of Dead Spirits - Touhou 13: Ten Desires:

Trying to confuse those few Touhou fans with this one, although I didn't suspect it would be hard for some of them. Well, only one of those participated, and only they got this one.

Fortree City - Pokemon Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald Versions:

Really this doesn't deserve a spot so high up in the difficulty, but I felt like picking a place with its own music that tends to be forgotten (or so I thought, if 4 people have anything to say about it).

And My Name's Booster - Super Mario RPG:

Have some good ol' SMRPG. 3 people got this one.

Yoshi Desert - Mario Kart: Super Circuit:

A difficult but not overly difficult Mario Kart melody (after W A R I O  G A L L E O N anything would've been fair but I felt like being nice to 3 people).

New-Age Retro Hippie - Earthbound:
Hippie Battle - Earthbound Beginnings:

Accepted either answer. I was kinda hoping to bamboozle people with this one, but 3 people are better than that.

Gruntilda's Lair - Banjo-Kazooie:

I picked a well-known song, just a less remembered section of it (as we do), but it was caught out by 3 people.

Sweden (Calm 3) - Minecraft:

brown bricks

Also this is a fairly well-known song and I expected more than 1 person to get it. Good nostalgia for me actually.

DK Isles (Crystal Caves) - Donkey Kong 64:

How to make people not get your melody:
 - Pick a less popular game.
 - Pick the latter section of a well-known motif from it.
 - Have an arrangement project of the game's soundtrack appear on the site. Something I still can't thank you guys enough for. Really, I don't deserve it.
 - ???
 - Profit.

Luckily Yug_Guy got it. Thank you, my good sir.

Great Edo Land - Chameleon Twist 2:

Yep. Here's the obscure one. I tried to be nice by picking one I have actually arranged (ages ago so that sheet is bad btw), but that didn't work lol. Listen to the song though, it's pretty great, like the rest of the game's soundtrack.

New Bark Town - Pokemon Gold, Silver and Crystal Versions:

A popular town theme. Again, with the less-popular section. 4 people got it anyway.

Main Theme - Pikmin:

Quote from: ThatHiddenCharacter
15 Obviously Pikmin, but there's too many songs to go through.
Quote from: Yug_Guy
And I know that #15 is based off of the Pikmin main theme, but I don't know what song specifically it is.
Quote from: mastersuperfan
#15 is probably Pikmin something
really don't feel like looking for #15 at the moment
okay I just need to find #15 and I'll be satisfied
screw #15, I'm going to listen to Tooie music
Quote from: Static and WaluigiTime64
S: #15: I know this is from Pikmin 2, but this is still just evil. I'll see if I can actually find the right track later. | wait a minute | wow | it | its just the map theme | gg | i expected it not to be so i searched everything but the map theme | well thats all i got for now | ill let you know if i find any more, but only like 2 others sound familiar rip
W: hey 2 would be alright
S: it would be lol
W: also when you say map theme which game are you referring to
S: 2
W: i'm pretty sure the motif is being used differently there
S: wait | hold on lemme check again | ok | yeah | in my head i heard it differently lol | ill keep searching | the rhythm is slightly different and its slower in world map compared to what you have | ill find it eventually
W: again the hint is you're overthinking it
S: hm
Quote from: Dudeman and WaluigiTime64
W: Don't tell anyone else but you're the only person so far with #15 and I think that's absolutely hilarious.
D: Haaaaaaaaaa
How is that even possible
Even MSF was like "this sounds like Pikmin but I can't find it"


This didn't bamboozle a grand total of 1 person.

Air Man Stage - Mega Man 2:

It's in Smash 4, and from MM2, so I expected it to be somewhat known. 4 people got it.

Forest Frenzy - Donkey Kong Country:

A popular song from DKC. 2 people got it. Yug_Guy how did you not

Desert Hills - Mario Kart DS:

I'm not hugely fond of this song, but I think it's still pretty good. 5 people got it.

Title Screen - Sonic the Hedgehog:

If you remember one of THC's quizzes, you were fine, provided you didn't just know it already. 5 people got this one.

Yoshi's Island - Super Mario World:

So it should be obvious by this one that I flipped the layout of difficulty on this quiz. Unsurprisingly 6 people did get it.

And the Winner is...

With a score of 12/20. Nice work.

Everyone's Scores:
ThatHiddenCharacter: 1, 7, 18, 19, 20 [T=5]

Thanks for playing.

Reminder to submit guesses in today, because I'll be posting answers very early tomorrow.

Stats are the same as above.

7 people have submitted guesses.

The following melodies have not been guessed currently: 2, 13

Of these two, one is the obscure melody. The other one is also an obscure melody, but from a notable game.

4 people have submitted guesses.

The following melodies have not been guessed currently: 2, 12, 13

Should be Monday for most people.


A few things about this quiz:
 - If there's a motif, I might want specifics (implying there is one, even though you don't necessarily know that).
 - There's one incredibly obscure melody in there, as there will be in all of the rest of my quizzes.
    - It does not follow regular difficulty order either.
 - As per usual, there is a bunch of Mario melodies.
 - Have fun.

I'll see some of you in the morning I guess.

That SMW Title Screen sheet is really good, but one thing: Explain M.18 Beat 1 in terms of playability (I assume it's the idea that many people can perform a tenth and there wasn't a good substitute but that still looks painful). That's pretty much it.

Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Mega Man X
That was very cool! Some good stuff, although I guess not particularly memorable at first listen, as I'm writing this only some weeks later, and don't remember a lot of it. :P
As long as you think Armoured Armadillo Stage is a good song you should be fine.
