OLRmageddon

With Captain Hypocrite winning his first OLRmageddon by a LANDSLIDE (lol), he gives us our theme for this month of American independence and bootleg fireworks.



Yessir, it's Passwords! The music that plays during the password screen of any game is fair for the mixing. Obviously Mega Man will be the popular choice, but try and choose one that maybe isn't so popular, eh?

And the bonus...



For those that are unfamiliar with rhythm, allow me to explain. Usually, songs are either in 4/4 or 3/4 time. This means that there are four or three beats in one measure of music. Therefore, when these songs are playing, you can count, one-two-three-four or one-two-three, and be able to keep count with the song. The bonus this time is to have you remix be in 5/4 or 7/4 time. That means if you count, you'd go up to five or seven, respectively. You can compound these, however, and make them into different groups of twos and threes, but it is ultimately up to you how you decide to remix them! And of course, this IS the bonus; no one is forcing you to do your mixes in these times, but you won't get that juicy +2 for your mix either!

Arrow Mixing begins when you read this.
Exclamation Mixing ends on July 27th at 11:59 PM EST (8:59 PM for the PST-ers).
Arrow Voting begins as soon as the songs are uploaded to the site.
Exclamation Voting ends on July 31st at 11:59 PM EST.
dump truck Rinse & repeat.

Go Go Go GO GO GO GO!!!!!

Just to clarify, does the music need to be exclusive to the password screen a la Mega Man and Castlevania, or do games like Metroid where the title or menu music plays over the password screen count too?

Maybe this time I'll remember that mixing ends before the end of the month. Sad also how did I only just realize OLR's emoticons are hand-drawn? SO CUTE.

That's a very good question!

Accepted are only the songs that were made especially for the password-screen.

That means
Games like metroid don't count.

Focus on the "Megaman" kind of games.

Yeah, that's right.

And just in case if the original password-music already is in 5/4! Then your remix has to be in 7/4, respectively 5/4 (if the original song is in 7/4).

I'd honestly be surprised is there is any password themes in 5 or 7, to be honest.

Here is something i've found.

http://youtu.be/6IsgyKGJt_k

I can't figure out in which time signature this is but it sounds very odd (Or am i hearing it wrong?).

Man, I really need to play the X series...but it sounds like this is in 7. However, it sounds weird because they are rushing a bunch of notes on the 7th beat, giving it that jarring feeling that doesn't really work. I think it would have been much cleaner just being in 4/4, but I've no idea what the composer was intending, so oh well!

But color me wrong: there is a password in 7/4! Now to find one in 5/4, cuz that'd be pretty awesome.

I think it's in 15/4 (7+8 )!
I've replaced the link (longer version) http://youtu.be/6IsgyKGJt_k
It's possible to count quarter notes through the whole piece, but it's hard! It helps when you feel the triplets while counting.

yeah, it's in 15/4. If you tap it out the quarter notes you end up on the 'and' notes for the 2nd loop, then back to the quarter the third time.

Also, 15/4, mm-mm. And they say video game music is just bleeps and bloops!
