For another topic to cover, I think this is a great idea:

Submitting Scores When You Don't Want to Pay For Finale
  • Link to the Finale Notepad download page
  • Overview of Finale Notepad being free but having limitations
  • Examples of what Finale Notepad can still do (extract MIDIs, "print" PDFs to stuff like PrimoPDF, add slurs)
  • What Finale Notepad cannot do (e.g. change key signature of part of a piece)--emphasize that this is a good point to ask the forums for formatting help
  • Link to the formatting help/request thread, basic etiquette on how to ask for help there (e.g. provide link to your .mus)

My goal is to have this done by the end of April, and the sooner, the better.
Right now, are we on track to have results for this contest by May 1 of this year?

Anyone wanting to re-enter the rotation, please speak up again.
To make up for my first quiz, I would like to re-enter the rotation. This time, all my melodies will be at least 8 bars long, all of them will be in series with at least one song on the main site (unlike last time), and at least one song can be found in a Super Smash Bros. game.

(Also, why the flip is there a MD5 hash at the bottom of the .mus? This can't be secure!)

I listened, and as long as you meant an En, you were right. I also noticed a couple staccato markings that were out of place, so I fixed those, too. Files updated.
Correct--by E, I meant E natural.

Sounds significantly better--thanks for fixing bars like bar 21!

However, the last 2 melody notes of Bar 32 (G-Bb) sound incorrect to me--according to 0:45-0:46 of the video, they should be E-G instead. I don't know whether it's just my speakers at home, though (listening to some pieces during work is just plain disillusioning).

My actual gaming has been reduced to smartphone games and Magic: The Gathering (and the very occasional online game on a webpage). I've been getting exclusively free-to-play games with in-game purchases for at least the past year, and I haven't paid a cent for any of them. (Ah, beating Peggle Blast without spending anything on it...)

You can argue that the in-game purchase model is manipulative, but I've once read that such games actually make the majority of their money from the scant few who sink thousands of dollars into such games, and the majority of players make 1 or fewer purchase (involving money) per game.

My conclusion? The design changes in Planet Robobot were to signify the fact that he was just a clone, and has been absent from a traditional platformer for some time now.
This seems to be lampshaded in Kirby: Planet Robobot's Meta Knightmare Returns mode itself, where pause screen descriptions admit that Star Dream couldn't analyze Dark Matter well enough to convincingly replicate it.

(In the meantime, Star Dream was good enough to not only replicate Queen Sectonia's outer body, it also probably replicated her core parasite body well enough to control the outer body just like the late queen did. However, it seems like Galacta Knight is enough parts fluke of luck and nurture that Star Dream figures that teleporting him instead of attempting to replicate him is the best option.)

Doesn't the Tetris music run into major copyright issues?
For Game Boy:
  • Korobeiniki is in the public domain.
  • All of Bach's works are in the public domain.
  • The only song that could run into copyright issues right now is Tetris Theme B.

For the NES, according to http://www.vgmpf.com/Wiki/index.php/Tetris_(NES)#Music, the only songs that aren't in the public domain are composed by Hirokazu Tanaka, so those would only run into the regular number of copyright issues.

Now, Mother 3's music runs into major copyright issues. Sampling pop music, nigh-quoting classical music composers whose works aren't in the public domain...

Welp, according to HAL Laboratory PR Satoshi Ishida on Miiverse, if this official translation from https://miiverse.nintendo.net/replies/AYMHAAADAAB2V0gMySQ9WA is accurate, the winter "action game" is in fact a fighting game:
Quote from: Satoshi Ishida
As for upcoming games, we're going to let Kirby loose in a 3D world this summer in Kirby's Blowout Blast, and we're also planning an action fighting game for next winter. There are going to be lots of games to celebrate Kirby's 25th anniversary, so I hope you're excited!" That was all! I bet you're all intrigued by Kirby's Blowout Blast and this new action fighting game in the winter.

Stuffing the Japanese version through Google Translate gives me this, which further implies that the new game is not a platformer:
Quote from: Satoshi Ishida, translated
Ahead of this, in the summer, Kirby will spin around the 3D space "Kirby's Petit Campaign", and in the winter a match-up game will be released.  Kirby's 25th anniversary is full of game software, so please do expect!  It was that it was.  I also care about 'Kirby's Petit Campaign' and the competition action games scheduled for winter.

Here's hoping it won't be Kirby Fighters Deluxe 2.0--that would get stale quickly.

Now I'll be using this earlier prediction:
If HAL Laboratory messes up and produces yet another fighting game somehow, I predict King Dedede, Meta Knight, and Bandana Waddle Dee will be playable characters. Heck, if they actually do end up hosting multiplayer servers for their new game, I also predict that those 3 characters will be playable.

It's easier to play poker when your mouth's always closed.

Dang, I recognize none of them yet again. (Maybe it's because I'm old enough to consider Mario Kart 64 to be a game of my childhood...)

are you sure
Tried changing key signatures in the middle of a blank sample piece in Finale Notepad just now; all I ended up doing was changing the key signature of the entire piece.

Tried deleting measures individually in a blank sample piece in Finale Notepad just now; the last system shrinks from 3 to 2 measures to 1 measure instead of Musescore's better redistribution of measures per system.

Keep in mind that I've got Finale Notepad 2012, and it insists it's already the latest version.

It's pretty late right now, so...

...Given that the current schedule is here, will SlowPokemon still post a quiz today and/or will Static post the answers today?

(As an aside, shoot is that schedule hard to read without dates. I mixed up which Monday person was supposed to be next just now.)

I was told that the mus was a formality. Also, I really hate the way Finale sheets look. Can't I link a Musescore folder in my signature?
You can link a Musescore folder in your signature, but you should either adjust the .mus until it matches the PDF or post in the topic that Dudeman mentioned so someone else can help you do so. You can adjust the .mus manually (this is a lot easier in Finale than Finale Notepad) or keep re-importing updated versions of the MusicXML file into Finale. There's tricky stuff like inserting "<measure-numbering>system</measure-numbering>" within "<print>" tags that you can do more easily with a text editor displaying your intermediate MusicXML file. ("<measure-numbering>system</measure-numbering>" adds a measure number to the first measure of each system, by the way.)

I've had to construct MIDIs from the .mus before, so that's part of why the .mus is the most important file of the 3.

(I'm speaking as a Musescore user who exports MusicXML files and sticks them in Finale Notepad. I'm unable to edit a lot of things in Finale Notepad, such as supporting multiple key signatures and smartly changing the number of measures in a system (i.e. without creating one-measure systems).)
