It is a game after all. We shouldn't discriminate against games here. NSM was built on the principle that most all games are created equal!.

You've got a point there.

Great work on this! I'm almost jealous I didn't think of doing it...

Man, if I knew everyone would be submitting CD-i sheets I would have brought up my Start-Up sheet.

Alright, one final update on my situation. I have been typing this off-and-on for the past two months. I hate to type a lot, but these details are important. I'll put them in spoiler tabs. If you don't like to read a lot, please don't waste your time here. Call me Tobbeh if you want

The Details
It's been so long since my last post here, so I'll try to remember everything I can.

- on the day of All-State auditions, Mr. Untiet called me back to the Auditorium after we returned, just to talk with me for a little, as auditions and family visiting home had prevented me from working my usual 7-hour Saturday Set Construction shift for Fiddler on the Roof. When I asked Claire, who was working, if Jace (her boyfriend) had told her he made All-State Choir, she told me they had recently gone through a mutual break-up. This was a surprise, as they were one of the happiest couples that I had seen in school.
- throughout the few occasions I walked up to Hallee to talk to her during downtime of musical practice, she either said she had to go use the restroom, or said she was busy organizing costumes (she was one of the costume heads)
- other times, I told her the best jokes I had, (as a friend of mine suggested it,) which made her smile, but I couldn’t tell if it was forced or not
- on the night of the last dress rehearsal, I asked Molly afterwards if she could casually mention me in a conversation with Hallee and possibly find out what she thought of me. She happily agreed, and I could tell she was eager to help me. That made me feel better.

Hallee's Party
- at the second cast party, which was at Hallee's house, I noticed Josh, the freshman who hit-and-ran on her car, was "roasting" people from an audience in the living room. He had become cocky ever since he made a savage comment an earlier night, and people had named him the "savage Drama king". Since I had nothing better to do, I entered the room and listened for a bit. You see, the adults had read a "roast list" for the major characters at the first cast party, and Josh was just re-using them; for some reason, people were still impressed. In response to each roast, I muttered a comment to Lucas, who, after 2 of mine, announced to everyone that, "We've got some roasting the roaster!" and the cast and crew encouraged me to start a roast battle, to which I agreed. I let Josh start, as I'm better when prompted, and after only half the people heard my first roast and roared, the other half asked me to repeat it. I casually said, "Why should I be the one to repeat roasts? That's all Josh ever does anyway," which made the whole room go absolutely nuts (screams, people asking for high-fives & fist bumps, etc.) This went on for 2 more minutes, with me countering every roast Josh tried to come up with, until he eventually gave up, and everyone asked for a speech from me. I made it short and told Josh I didn't mean anything I said personally, and shook his hand, causing people to shout, "Yea! Good sports!" This continued on, with multiple people challenging me and supposedly losing, and with me interjecting into someone else's battle, just by standing up, which quieted everyone down quick. Eventually, Hallee came down the stairs to see what all the ruckus was about, as they told her upstairs that I was "spitting fire". She didn't end up hearing me roast anyone, but she apparently took their word for it.
- while visiting with the audience in the concourse after our third performance, I worked up the courage to congratulate Hallee on a good show, and she returned it, but with a somewhat pained look in her eyes. Her parents, who were standing close by, surprised me by asking if I wanted a picture with her, and we both agreed. Though, after taking the picture, I'd hate to think she was pressured in any way by her parents to take one with me if she didn't want to. She seemed ok with it, but...
- while giving my freshman friend, Jamie, a ride to her church, she mentioned that at Hallee's party, she was upstairs with her and several other girls, playing Apples to Apples. When Hallee was asked if anyone else should join, she said that I was welcome to, and that I was "too innocent" to be downstairs with everyone else.
- when I talked to another freshman friend of mine, Lucas, he mentioned that during one of the later rehearsals, while he was back running the sound board, Hallee and a few others were watching the "Tevye's Dream" scene, where I had one of my Rabbi moments. He overhead Hallee say that I was the cutest guy she had ever seen. This made me feel really good, but also confused.
- finally, about a month and a half after asking her to talk to Hallee, I checked back with Molly to hear if she found out anything, and she did. A few days before, she had gone to a sleepover with Claire and Hallee at Claire’s house, and the topic of boys was brought up.

How She Felt About Me
Hallee apparently had a suspicion that I liked her. She said I was really sweet, but after Joe, her last boyfriend, she was very uncomfortable to start another high school relationship, and didn’t know how to tell me, because she didn’t want to hurt my feelings. She said she enjoyed getting Set Construction tools for me as my Secret Santa the previous year, and liked being my friend, but once I asked her to homecoming, she felt every one of our encounters was awkward and upsetting.
- at this point, I was desperate to erase what I had done. Molly offered to talk to Hallee for me, and I said yes, if she could explain that I just wanted to be friends again, and didn’t want her to remember me as “that one guy that liked her at one point”. I also asked if we could all 3 talk it over after Molly explained to Hallee privately, and she agreed. Before we parted that day, Molly said I was always welcome to join her prom group if I didn’t find a date. I was very touched by this, but also unsure if I’d be going, so I thanked her and said I’d think about it.
- about a week later, Molly talked to Hallee, and Molly and I planned to talk with her at the Drama Christmas Party. However, she went to a production of Les Misérables out of town, and the only trace of her at the party was her last “Secret Santa” gift for her assigned buddy.
- because Hallee was in both Large Group Speech musical theatre and the “chromatic” division of jazz choir (I’m in two others of LGS and in the “pieces” jazz choir division”,) finding her after school became increasingly difficult. On the last day before break, I found Molly and was about to plan with her to make that day the day, but I then noticed her crying. I asked what was wrong, and she said that she and Sam had broken up their +5-year relationship; this was shocking, as I never knew them separated, didn’t usually see them apart, and never noticed any problems between them, even recently. So, I planned to talk to Hallee alone.
- after school, I called Tim, my “Box & Cox” partner (a 15-minute farce for LGS), explained my situation, and asked him to tell Hallee after Chromatic jazz that I would like to speak to her in private. He agreed, and before we hung up, he assured me I’d find someone.
- nearly sprinting down the halls, I came around the corner to encounter Tim and Molly, who told me they thought they saw Hallee leave. As Molly was about to offer me Hallee’s phone number, Hallee came up behind me; Molly and Tim smiled, whispered, “You got this”, and left.

Our Concluding Conversation
- I started off by apologizing to her for putting us both in an uncomfortable situation when I asked her to homecoming, and for being so awkward all that time. She replied that she didn’t want to hurt my feelings, that she didn’t hate or dislike me, and that, “It’s ok; we’re all a little awkward some point in our lives.” I also told her I didn’t wish for her to remember me as “that one guy that liked her at one point”, and that I was willing to anything to make up for everything negative I had caused. She said that I was fine, and assured me it wasn’t like that. Now, I had more to say to her, but she was apparently in a hurry, so I wished her a merry Christmas, and left.

So, over the course of several weeks, things started to get better; I was comfortable to go to band, choir, and Drama practice. I talked to her casually several times, made her laugh hard with Tim & I’s scene and my Reader’s Theatre, and even sang the national anthem with her at a swim meet. I thought things were going back to normal. I finally had the confidence I hadn’t had since before homecoming, until my best friend told me something I didn’t need to know…

Prom? No.
- one day, after talking to Untiet in his office, my friend Ethan told me something he heard. Apparently, the previous night, Hallee and Claire, both student directors, were talking during during Improv practice about prom. Hallee mentioned that she was going to ask me (of all people,) but was worried someone else would ask her first. I really wish he didn’t tell me; I had just about gotten over her and wasn’t experiencing any girl troubles, but that was all over. While I had never planned to ask her, (or anyone, at the moment,) my hopes were suddenly higher than needed. I was living, once again, in near-constant nervousness.
- the following Tuesday, my friend Darrian needed a ride to work, but before we left, he needed to grab his coat out of the choir room, so we went there. When we arrived, the girls were buzzing about prom, which revealed that on that day, Hallee had asked my friend Kyle instead. This hurt, as I thought she would have just went with her friends instead, like homecoming, and that if she was asking anyone, it would have been me. Now, that’s not to say I always wanted to go with her, or that I would have gotten offended if she asked someone other than me, but Ethan sorta got my hopes up. For only a brief period of days, I thought I was officially in the clear.

My mother convinced me to try and ask a girl to prom. At first, I wanted to ask Claire, but when I checked with her mother, she said Claire already had a date from a different school, so that’s that. After some long thinking, I decided I was going to ask a senior named Natalie; she’s very much involved in Drama, volunteers for Mr. Untiet a lot, and has told me she thinks I'm quick-witted, sweet, and she likes my puns. I asked her by saying I was asking for a friend to find out whether or not she'd be going, and she said she was going with a group; I was disappointed, but so glad she didn't know I wanted to ask. I am currently thinking of other girls, but...

... despite this, I wish I knew how to make things between Hallee and I less awkward. I didn’t want to ruin her senior year, but I feel talking to her before Christmas didn’t change much; I mean, come on, the lack of comfort between us isn’t something I can change straight away. In Peer Helper, we were told that an average of 20 positive encounters are needed to erase a bad impression of oneself, but if I talk to her too much, I’m afraid she’ll think I’m pursuing her again. She’s seen me act, sing, and interrupt band practice by playing a jazzy "Happy Birthday" rendition on solo saxophone for my band director. I have been told she thinks I'm a sweet and funny person, but that's not the point. What should I do?


So glad to finally submit this!

And boy, what a ways it has come, too

Please tell me someone will get this

Hang on - the ones we're hosting on site and these are transposed versions of each other. What accounts for the discrepancy - is it the platform of the game?

Our current Game Start comes from the arcade version. The other three come from the NES version. There was a discrepancy to begin with.

I don't know why, but yes, the NES versions are transposed from the originals.

EDIT: My mistake; the old Game Start was in the arcade key.

Whoops, excuse me. Forgot one crucial part:

Oooooorrrrr just change the system for the ones on site to [NES]. Then add yours under [ARCADE]. Bam, problem solved.

I suppose that would work, as long as the updaters are cool with it.

Oooooorrrrr just change the system for the ones on site to [NES]. Bam, problem solved.

I'm not quite sure I understand what you mean, Yug. Are you aware that the arcade and NES versions are not identical, or am I confused?

This arrangement will replace all the Donkey Kong sheets currently?

If you guys approve, yes.

For most of the soundtrack: Donkey Kong (Arcade) - Zophar's Domain

For the unused themes: Donkey Kong (Arcade) - The Cutting Room Floor

It's about time I finished this. This compilation should replace all of the on-site ones, of which almost all are based around the [NES] arrangements, despite the fact that this game is listed as [ARCADE].

Some minor notes some had disputes over:

- m. 5, 6 & 7, being separate songs, were bound to be spaced out along the line, but it was debated whether or not it was worth it to do so. Besides, I don't know how to
- Miss's tempo was very hard to measure, and I'm half convinced it's supposed to change right at the pickup. I need verification
- also on Miss: the LH is an octave up, but should that be assumed by the RH's 8va marking, and the specially arranged stems that I added in? I wasn't sure if this clef was appropriate for piano:

- last thing: this soundtrack, being very dynamic-neutral, seemed appropriate to have everything deemed as mf, but is just once at the beginning good? I mean, that's a lot of mfs to add in

Fun fact: the unused themes were actually discovered very recently by TCRF, so I guess it's good we have them included now.

During jazz band practice today, I proved my band director wrong in front of everyone in the room by showing that he had a rhythm wrong. Everyone else had been counting half a beat too long in one part for 10 minutes, and he told me I was the only one wrong, but when I stood up and counted while everyone else played, he finally believed me. He was so upset, he threw his score back over his head.
