Don't know what to do past here other than wait for feedback. Any other pieces that nobody feels like taking on? I like a challenge.

If nobody has started 'forest haven', I'd like to give it a shot. I actually have some sketches of that one in progress, so I could pick the project back up.

Well nobody responded so I did it anyway. Here is the link to my arrangement on MuseScore:

Done in the style of Ravel's 'Bolero'. This was a tough one, much of the song is driven by percussion. I kept the sixteenth notes constant in the right hand throughout so they are more forward than they are in the soundtrack, and made sure to keep the left hand beat underneath the melody whenever possible. The three difficult sections will be where the hands are playing right on top of each other (I played through it slowly is doable, but it's tricky), the sections where the left thumb will have to play a couple of sixteenth notes while the left pinky holds down a note, and the section where the left hand will have to cross over the right to play that very high melody. You will hear it in the arrangement.

Thoughts on the arrangement are welcome.

Hello, welcome to NinSheetMusic!

1 - You will indeed need someone to help you convert your XML file into a Finale file. There's no shortage of people willing to help you with that, though, so don't worry.

2 - The short answer is that it depends on the sheet and the original song. We'd be able to help you determine the best way to write something out once we have something to reference. Post your arrangements [here] and we'll comment!

3 - Just look up the publisher and developer. For most games that aren't super obscure, should be easy to find on Wikipedia or something.

I also saw you had been thinking about submitting challenge replacements. Again, once you create a topic for your arrangements in the board I mentioned above, we can take a look and see if that'd be fitting.

Feel free to ask around for help with anything :)

Thanks so much! Quick point of clarification, should I post my in-progress pieces on that page (the MuseScore format ones) and request that somebody help me with the conversion there, or do I need to have them converted first? Sorry, I'm still trying to figure out how to navigate around here.

Done, but not formatted for submission yet:

Donkey Kong Country 2 - "Opening"
Donkey Kong Country 2 - "K. Rool Returns"
   -Original arrangement by ear, I just saw there is one here already. I'm a new member of this site. I suppose it will be a 'challenge' arrangement then. It's more fully orchestrated, and gets
    the rhythm correct throughout the piece. Also is a bit harder to play I think.

Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap - "Game Over"
Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap - "Temple of Droplets"
   -Both of these the same story as above. 'Challenge' arrangements.

StarFox Adventures - "Inside Krazoa Palace"
   -This one was a bear to arrange, but it's done pending formatting. Hopefully my slightly non-standard fugue-like notation is accepted.

In Progress:
Nothing at the moment, I just finished 'Game Over' today and have nothing in the pipeline at the moment.

Howdy! New here, first post. I have a few arrangements I will be submitting after I have formatted them according to the guidelines. I have a couple of questions:

1. I don't have a PC, I have a Mac. I use MuseScore for my arrangements, and cannot run Finale Notepad as it is a windows-only product. Is the music XML file acceptable, or do I need to find a member who has Finale Notepad to do the conversion for me?

2. Regarding the formatting guidelines, are there any restrictions on (for lack of a better term) non-standard notation practices? As an example, I have one piece that uses three sixteenth rests in a row several times in lieu of the probably more correct eight rest + sixteenth rest. It's an intentional choice however, the entire piece is sixteenth notes and rests played in unison, and this is much more readable (to me) than the eight + sixteenth.

2b. Another example: I have a piece that doesn't have any pedal markings (they clutter up the page, and there's nothing all that unusual about how this one should be pedaled) however, the left hand in many measures has two 'voices', and one of the voices is written over the other (so I might have a whole note sustaining the measure, but also a half note and a quarter note to be played on the 2 and the 4). This isn't all that unusual for something with multiple voices, it is to illustrate that the one voice is to be held (by hand or with the pedal) and the other is to be played on top of it. On first glance though, it might not look correct. Would this be an acceptable editorial choice in a submission?

3. Lastly, for the copyright of the piece, is there a good resource? I assume the copyright of the game itself would be used, but I'm not sure.

Thanks, glad to have found this place! I hope to be a regular contributor.
