Loop points found, edited, and uploaded.

Matoya's Cave and Menu Screen v2's up, previous ones renamed to v1, and Potion (non-looping) added as well.


For menu screen, the improv part itself is good, but the transition into it is rather jarring, and makes it feel like it doesn't belong. I think you need another few notes at the beginning of the improvised part, to better handle the transition into it. Transitions out of it fine.

I added a few notes, let me know what you think of this and any other recommendations, or even if you like it better to be more true to the original without this extra part.

Edit:
Honestly, I do think I will stick with the original without any of this extra stuff.  It has not turned out at all the way that I expected.

I'm not sure what I felt when I did the modification to the menu music; I think mostly I was just plugging in notes, and that's pretty much what it ended up sounding like.

If you or anyone have any ideas or example remixes of this song that make more sense, please let me know!

That actually fixed the problem, sounds like a much more natural progression into the improv part.

I did some looking around, but it doesn't look like anyone's really done any remasters or remixes of Menu Screen...

I used the triangle channel in an interesting way in this song.

Wow, I'd forgotten about this, lol (sorry).

Give me a day or two and I'll convert the new track like I did the other ones.

Thanks edale.  There is an extra part in this song in Final Fantasy Origins that I did not do, it is mostly kind of an extra drum solo right where it loops.  I really like that and I may still try to add it.  Also, something just sounds a little off in the snare drum near the end, I just can't put my finger on it.  It seems like the last part is a little bit late and not lining up or something.  So it is possible there will be a newer version of this song at some point.

Edit


Improvement!

I'd say I have no excuse, but I have several, lol. I've been playing the hell out of FFXV PC recently, and I just got a PSTV (if you don't know what it is look it up, cool little game system, basically a stripped down PSVita as a console, official Sony product, not a hack), and no sooner have I got the mod for that working and everything running good that the 3.65 CFW is released (literally 2 days after I got my system), which massively expands the list of Vita games I can play on the system, including Ys VIII, the game I got the system for (which I couldn't play before the CFW was updated, which would have sucked), so I've been playing a few games on that as well.

I also figured out how to record gameplay video in 720p/60 so I could upload some gameplay video of the FFVI MSU-1 mod I've been doing the audio work on, and recorded and uploaded all of the different versions of the Opera I've converted for the mod to Youtube. (http://www.romhacking.net/forum/index.php?topic=16476.msg353880#msg353880)

So i finally get to this, just finish uploading it, go to post... and I see the updated version, lol.

Both V1 and V2 of Dungeon are done.

Thanks edale.  I have still not done the save music...  That should be pretty quick and easy.  Do you have a preference which full song I should do next?  It is down to these 4 now!

3. Ending Theme
6. Airship
13. Floating Castle
14. Future Chaos' Temple

No preference, you're really that close to finishing the mod? Nice.

Yes I am getting close but I have saved all the hardest stuff for last!  Floating castle will probably be the hardest I think.  Also, I really do need to improve or redo gurgu volcano.  That may be the very last thing I do since there is already something there for now.

I know what that's like. You do something, think you did a great job, then a few days later you go over it again, and find TONS of obvious mistakes that you can't figure out how you missed the first time... But oh well, work on it later, there's at least something there, and there's several other tracks to work on...

Yea, lets just say my first few revisions of the Opera for the FFVI MSU-1 mod weren't as good as I originally thought, lol.

Oh my, I got the 60+ days old warning when making this post......  This is a pretty slow-going project.  Slowly but surely!

I got Underwater Temple ("future chaos temple") done today!
