Totally off topic, but what is an iconic item in Harvest Moon? I'd like to put this song in Village as well, but I have all the songs attached to items from the various games, and I don't know what people would associate with Harvest Moon since I've never played it.

I finally tested coral with all and music.
It's so nice! I like the song... I wish it played all the time.
By the way, the beeps the fish does seem kinda out of place, don't you think? Maybe using another sound effect would fit better?

Unfortunately, the music is set up to play in different parts of the program, and I don't have time to properly trace the program's run. If you have a better idea of a better beep, please share. I can tell the beep and the music does not mesh. I'm thinking a ticking sound would be better, but can't find it in the table. How do you like the fish drawing? Does it matches your fish?

I will submit this in either late Wednesday or Thursday. I'll just put in "WIP" notice on the submission form. Did you submit yours already? How did it go?

The drawing is perfect, I looks just like I imagined the fish while drawing it. Did you do it?
About the song, @random, the song is perfect for the game, the thing that should be changed is the beeping sound the fish makes.
About the beep, what do you think of sound number 59 set to 2000?

59 is too much, I think. I'm thinking 27,31 or 51. But I will let the forum vote, and will just put in any popular choice. It's everybody's game, after all.
Yes, I did the fish. I have a paint program leftover from learning graphic. I forget which Petit Computer Journal was it, but that's the paint program I used. I still don't like the fact that it doesn't do zoom. Future improvement, I guess.

I am entering Temple raid in one or two days. Probably not going to win anything though :) + :/.
@ramstrong really nice job. I will find a good beep sound later. The game still feels a tad bare, like its missing something...
@randomouscrap98 Wow! Good job on the song! This is amazing! It fits very well! Menu music is also a good idea.

Oh well, there are several iconic things in harvest moon (pretty much every game has it's own special something) but Turnips are the basic crop of spring in most of the games, so I often relate turnips to that song.

This is what a turnip looks like in the game where that song comes from.

I'm glad you like it! It can be better, sure, but I don't want to wait entering the contest, and it's good enough as-is. Just need to fix the annoying beep, which wasn't annoying until the good music is in.

@bluerobin2 Thanks! I'm glad you like it.

@Morphtorok I would love to use a turnip, but I'm already using it for Super Mario Bros 2. I mean, it's such an iconic item in the game that Mario's carrying it on the cover. My friend suggested the dog, is that identifiable enough? I mean, it's going to be hard to make a discernible dog with only about 12X10 pixels, but I'll try.

I think with Morphtroid, it has to be the cow. Am I right?

The cow is the second most "harvest moony" thing I can think of.

Btw, the song is now completely functional in Petit Farm (It looks so awesome with it playing in the background). I'll try to share the updated version soon.

I'm sorry it took so long Morphtorok, I got caught up in the ending. I've basically just been spending the last 45 minutes altering volumes and ADSR packages for that last little part. I really hope you like it; I based it directly off the Youtube clip you gave me (with a little help from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NE2Yi1CcSrc ). If anything's out of place for your liking, please let me know and I can change it. Anyway, here's Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town's Spring theme:

UntitledUntitled

Edit: For those who want to know, the reason why the ending was hard for me was because it's supposed to be this delicate part, but it's very heavy and active. It's hard to get, say, Vin Diesel to look and act like the Princess of England.

Are you really really good at programming in MML or something? Do you know music theory already? I'm listening to your harvest moon thing and it's amazing. Would you be willing to do the link to the past story for me? Without the intro part. And without the lightning. I just want the story part.
I can use QMIDI studio but it isn't as amazing as your skills here.

Can you teach me how you do this? I'd like to do a bunch of custom MML for my games.

Huh? What do you mean? I posted those 9 hours ago on the QR thread. I packaged everything into CORAL.ZIP, too. Including the drawing of the fish!

I didn't realize they'd be posted THERE. I was waiting for them to be posted in this thread the entire time >.<

Go you GO!!!! :D :D I can't wait to see it.
Idea: If anyone is interested in seeing some of their games be ported to PC I can do it.
Limitations include: No MML (unless I can find an mml playing library )
No GRP, SPR, etc. But images can be exported to be used as sprites if you have the image files themselves.
MP3 Or OGG music compatible

Best of all, larger screen so you can have more to work with. option to integrate mouse menus, etc.
Anyone want their game ported? Just link me to the QR codes for the code itself, and give me any image resources you used as well.
I could probably port it in less than a day , or a few weeks depending on how complex the game/s are. :D
Porting to PC means I can create a multiplayer feature (for use over the internet) but requires, a seperate exe server file to run.
Or it requires one of the people trying to play to give away their IP to the other person and to use port forewarding on their router.
Or optionally, use something like hamachi.

@Gimmemorecoinz I wouldn't say I'm really good at it; after all, I'm just copying music. I did take one music theory course in college (for non-majors, meaning it's a class for people who aren't involved in music), so there's that. Oh, and I played the Clarinet for 10 years, which may have helped. I used this: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/663843-petit-computer/63524945 to learn MML, and I just experimented with notes for a bit before I used this sheet music: http://www.ninsheetm.us/sheetmusic.php?series=SuperMario to make the Super Mario Bros 2 theme. I made it using just piano notes first by directly copying the sheet music, then I listened to the original recording to figure out which sounds were appropriate. You can get a list of the sounds using the Petit computer manual. The sheet music doesn't contain all the parts, so I had to listen to the song carefully to add in things like percussion and sometimes the counter-melody. That's all I did: since MML just requires the notes and their lengths, if you know how to read music, you can transfer the sheet music into MML pretty easily. One of the parts that requires a little more tuning is the ADSR package, which is described on that first link. I learned about ADSR here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synthesizer (just scroll down to the section labelled "ADSR envelope". I also used this awesome Petit Computer program called PX7: http://petitcomputer.wikia.com/wiki/PX7_(Synthesizer) , which helped me shape the notes to make them sound a certain way. You can also listen to all the sounds using this program. As for extracting parts from songs that aren't on the sheet music: that requires a bit of music experience in order to discern the relative pitch of a note and the tendencies of musical movement in certain keys.

What is the story music? I'd rather not make any Link to the Past songs, because quite a lot of the sounds in those songs are highly customized, and as @Discostew mentioned, it would be very difficult to replicate those sounds. I could use the built-in sounds, but it probably wouldn't sound like the game at all, and I don't want you to think that I didn't work as hard on your songs.

Programming doesn't take age. It takes skill. It is like learning a language. You can do it when you are 3 years old.

Here's a new OS cuz I kinda got tired of GTA OS. There were only games, it was pretty boring. I present, Isle OS. (You'll need CODEV1, the OS loading thing, for that part to work.) Also, GTC is coming along ok, I fixed the problem, now how do I, when I press x again to get out of the car, get the car to stay where it is?

BTW, I'm sorry to all the people to whom I keep denying songs. They're just too difficult for me at the moment, and I don't want to make something that isn't as accurate as possible.

@Morphtorok I can't wait to see how it all plays together! I'm so happy that you enjoy the song!
