Formatting should be good for this one, I double-checked it and even used the special requests thread. However, m12 looks a bit messy and I'm not sure what to do. I also checked the harmonics, but I can't figure out the one at bt.1 m15 (0:48). One question - there's also a fanfare which plays just before this in the original game which is only sometimes split up by soundtrack compilations; should I include it or should it be its own separate sheet?

Bump. I still care about this and the forums seem to be more active now.

This looks really good, just a few things:

- m8, m15, m17, m29 - Gbs should be F#s, sorry its just m8 and m29 for this
- m15, m17 - That upward run in the 1st layer of the RH should be 8th note triplets.
- The 8va symbol at the bottom of the first page is a little close to the copyright text; maybe space the systems on that page just a little bit closer together.

Regarding the intro fanfare, I think it would be best to leave it on a separate sheet.

EDIT: One more thing, I would notate this piece in C Major vs c minor. It's a very weird song and the accidentals are kind of all over the place at times, but overall this piece has a stronger major tonality.

Fixed.

NotePad doesn't allow for manual moving of systems, so this is unfixed. I currently have an arrangement in the special requests thread, and while I could add it into the request, with the other one needing much more work (and submission thread generally being the place for minor formatting tweaks on submitted sheets), I likely won't.

Noted.

Done. NotePad's only method of changing key signature is leaving the notes relative to the key (for cm -> GM, a D would become A, Eb would become B), so the transition of all of the accidentals was not automatic and was done manually. As a result, a previous fix eliminating cross-voice redundant accidentals does now not cover all scenarios (and leaving some notes mistakenly looking double-flatted). I also re-did all of the courtesy accidentals, and if there are others you would like to add in that would be great.
