I've uploaded my latest version, taking into account Latios' points and including ossias in two places. I kept the first one consistent with the one in the image I posted, even if it's just for one note. Let me know if you think a more compact notation would be preferable. 
If it'd written out full floating ossia measures they'd have to be crammed into a very small space or a full second page would have to be added.

Quote from: Latios212 on May 26, 2020, 03:52:37 PMThough should the bracket cover beat 1 as well?
It was intentionally not covering the whole bar, but I've decided to change it in my latest revision.

I have updated the sheet with LH notes in the bass clef and RH notes in the treble clef as well as the octave shifts.   
As for the hand-stretchy parts, I'm wondering if something like this would work.

I totally forgot there's an official translation now. I guess I'll have to address my angry letter to Witch Hunt instead...

Quote from: Maelstrom on April 21, 2020, 07:45:13 PMB3 and 3.5 of the m15 LH should be an octave lower, and m21-23 LH should be an octave later.
Later? Do you mean lower?
But yes, that seems to be the way to go. 

Quote from: Maelstrom on April 21, 2020, 07:45:13 PMI'd recommend either putting layer 2 of m7-8 in the LH or making a marking to play it with the LH.
I'll do that. I'm just too used to scores that doesn't prioritise performance instructions that much. 

Quote from: Maelstrom on April 21, 2020, 07:45:13 PMm12 is a crime against fingers.
I'll make it friendlier, but I'd like to at least leave it as an option for those who can play it (in LH of course).

I should have some time to work on it this weekend.

- Looks good, I'd just flatten the tie in m7-8, it's a little too round compared to the other ties.

Done. There was a reason for it, but not anymore.

- I really am not fond of the double key signature thing going on here... It doesn't really sound like a polytonic piece (just some very colorful chords), and even if it was, having multiple key signatures is more confusing to read in my opinion.
- That said, if other people think it's really a good idea to have this, I would put the 6 naturals at the beginning of each line where they should appear instead of all that empty space. I'd prefer the entire thing be keyless though...
- The 2nd quarter note in m7 should be split into 2 tied 8th notes to match the 6/8 beaming.
- Because you're switching from compound to simple time, the beginning of the 4/4 bar should have an 8th note=8th note marking to indicate no change in tempo (that the 8th note pulse stays constant).

I trust your judgement and have removed the key signatures. 
I'm not sure whether (or how) they should be mixed with sharps or not, but I've stuck to flats.

The other two issues should be resolved as well.

I've just got one comment: What is the double barline doing at the end of m6? It's not really doing anything and there's another barline the measure after. I'd say it should just be removed.

Yeah, that wasn't intended at all. Not sure how it happened, but it's gone now.

Nice  :)
The key signature should be G major and I think you can fit in the little figure/melody at the end of the second measure.
Something along these lines

Quote from: Latios212 on February 05, 2020, 04:39:29 PMThanks! :) I'm not sure about that, though - it sounds to me like G is just a chord tone there and I don't hear a G sticking out like the rest of the melody notes do.
You're probably right; it's not there in the versions from later games in the series.   :P
I personally hear the G4 very clearly though, but it's probably the second harmonic of the bass, and spectrum analysis doesn't really clarify the situation.

I felt that the piece felt a bit empty when reduced to only two voices. 
Additionally I think that the # in the title should be changed to the more conventional No.

And more food! This one's got some interesting chords.

Good job :)
I hear a staccato G following the F in m.9, but the rest seems right.

Quote from: Latios212 on February 02, 2020, 02:40:32 PMLast couple of things with this one - the tie over the key signature change in m. 7-8 is visibly broken. Also, the middle quarter in m. 10 should be two tied eighths.
Done.
Took me a while to figure out how to fix the tie, and I was considering just covering up with a slur.

Quote from: Latios212 on February 02, 2020, 08:47:49 AM- The tied eighths everywhere except for the first pair in m. 8 should be quarter notes instead.
- Move a couple of measures up so the third system isn't stretched and the last isn't squished. Each system could have 3 or 4 measures.

Don't know why I left it like that, but I've fixed it up now.
I also removed the time signature changes in the middle because I felt it wasn't really necessary.

I have considered notating it in Db Major (based on the final chord), C Major, or Gb Major, but I think the split double signatures makes the most sense and looks the cleanest.

I actually started on this one, but thankfully I saw this before I could dedicate a significant amount of time to it  ;D
Looks (and sounds) good, but are you sure about the double sharp on measure 2 beat 2?

Quote from: Yug_Guy on January 30, 2020, 08:29:18 PMCause it kinda sounds to me like there's an echo note played on those beats.
Just sounds like a regular ol' note to me too.

Quote from: Latios212 on January 27, 2020, 03:49:21 PMFish is indeed a food :P
Yeah, but "Fishy" is just what one person translated it as. The official title has nothing to do with fish, it just means "dubious" or "suspicious", so it feels very arbitrary.
Not that I wouldn't love to have it on the site :)
