Great arcade music zoo! It's very catchy. The music is cool, so we should keep it for Frogger or some other game. But Ship Lander's theme is all precise and careful. Can you make a more serious or slower theme for Ship Lander?

You have no idea how easy writing this was.
It is just holding down keys in garage band, in the "circuit dialog"

That's way better than what I can do. I open GarageBand and gawk. Not sure what to do.

just open the musical typing window. Then play like a piano.

Do you know anything about a way to organise notes by hand? It would help a lot in some cases, because I always screw up a tiny bit with complex songs. The work-around is slow the tempo while recording. ::)

yeah,
in the bottom left corner of the screen there's a little picture of scissors cutting string. click on that and you can edit individual notes. you could make said notes longer, shorter, you could move them or change their pitch. it's really a useful tool, and has a better sound quality than recording yourself playing a piano. Oh, and I think USB piano keyboards work with garage band if you have one.

Yeah I just got the note editing working. It's awesome and easy. Gonna practice making songs as soon as GarageBand finishes it's 1.2gb update in 4 hours.

Note, before you can edit notes:
(1) Create a region of track to place notes on.
(2) Select the note type.
(3) Command-Click places a note.

Composing a song note by note is a very rewarding accompishment. I'm only accustomed to simple tunes with minimal instruments, but I've really enjoyed the process of composing the score for Elathondr├Ęoth. I particularly like choosing which instruments to include in which areas, for example using a wooden drum and a hollow sounding flute in the forest, whilst using an eerie organ for the graveyard.

I've got 15 tracks just about finished now, and almost 30 that either aren't finished or are but I don't feel fit in the game world anymore.

Well I still don't have Game Maker...
But I'd be willing to work with someone on Gauntlet, it sounds fun!
And I can probably help with code a little since the logic works the same way, I just don't know many of GM's commands.

I love that gauntlet voice.
Choose your player
Elf! Wizzard! Warrior!
Lol.
Yeah, thats a good game. if we do gauntlet, we should give it a different theme though. And how about adding upgrades and getting rid of the warp tiles that like take you from level one to level 16. I can get to level 20 with no trouble at all because of those.

If you don't know GM commands it's OK. You could do art or music or even just share ideas.
