All right, so I feel I got most of the changes, you'll have to correct me on chords though if they're wrong.
  • If you want to add those downbeat chords in m19-25, 45-51, I think they would sound better as a 2nd layer in the RH. The LH would probably be better off it just stayed with the bass-chord rhythm used in the beginning for most of this piece, since that's really the part that drives this entire piece forward, at least in my opinion.
For this, I did the first downbeats like normal and put the second downbeats on 2.5 for the most part in the first layer. I thought it'd be easier to play and sound better that way. Again, if  the chords sound off, you can correct me on them.

Ah I did try to put this in my picture but I should have mentioned it as well.  Make sure to put the rests in 11-13 back to the usual height.
Also (x5), I know I said to add the staccatos, but I realise that the last one in each set of three should probably not be staccato to reflect the original.  The first two are still useful for distinguishing the phrase mark though.
Taken care of!

- Bottom note of the chords in m39 beats1-2 and m41 should be F# instead of G.
- I would move the arranger info up so it's not so close to the RH notes at the end of the first system.

Walrus Cove
- I would suggest writing the tempo as quarter=196 instead of half=98. Also, I would move the tempo marking a little bit up so it's not so close to the stem on m1 beat 1.
- In m11/15/35/39, you might consider breaking the beam over the rest. It's acceptable as is, but not beaming over rests is conventionally a bit more preferred.
- The Cn's in m16/32/40 RH (not LH) should be changed back to B#'s; my bad for not specifying.
- In the original track, the whole note in m52 RH only lasts for half the measure. Totally fine if you want to keep it as a whole note, just thought I'd bring up the choice of whole note vs. half note there.
Got 'em covered!

I didn't say add the harp part, I suggested adding in the (currently missing) harmony from the harp part.
Ah, okay. Sorry, I got confused. Other than that, I made the rest of the changes. For the dynamics, I added some forte and crescendos. Should be good. Sorry that the versions keep getting the articulations mixed up.

Just one thing: In the last system, I would keep all the chords in root inversion to keep the sound consistent.
Walrus Cove
Getting back to you on the enharmonic spelling: spell the B#'s as Cn's instead.
Done!

Mkay, so "Spaceport Alpha" has been updated but I got a couple things I want to explain my thinking on:
Spaceport Alpha
-I'd recommend trying to get some of the harmony into bars 11-14.  The harmony that is outlined there is B -> Em -> B -> Em -> G (by the harp thing).
-I'm not sure about the staccatos in 21-28, they don't sound particularly needed there.
While it would be nice to add in the harp part, I feel it might overcomplicate what I have in measures 11 to 14, since the rest of the piece doesn't have any additions similar to that in other measures. Personally, I find it out of place here, regardless of how it fits in the original source.
For the staccatos in 21 through 28, while not particularly needed, I did hear them from the original source, and I thought it fit well with the rhythm of the bass to have them there or at least have the ones on beat 2.5.
Other than those two things, everything else should be in order unless I missed something by accident.

All right, so "Darkmoon Caverns" and "Walrus Cove" have been updated. I'll get to "Spaceport Alpha in just a moment.

1) swing should be set to 50, not 75. Had the same issue with my recent arrangement that had swing 16ths
2) The bassline needs to be double checked in the context of the swing 16ths since that changes the rhythm of it now.
Swing's been set, and I couldn't pick up anything different in the rhythm of the bass/chords in the source opposed to the sheet after listening for a while except for a few staccatos and similar.

Walrus Cove
In the interest of time I made the above few edits for you as well as doing the usual articulation reset. Let me know if you see anything off before I approve.
Looks okay to me.
Dino Domain
Something felt off about this song and it took me a while to figure it out. First of all, there's no dotted 16th-32nd rhythm. It's all swung 8ths. In addition, the places you have written as normal 8ths (e.g. end of m4) are also swung 8ths.
Are you sure? 'Cause I don't hear the 8ths as swung, especially in measures like 8, 10, 12, 14 and 16.

All right, so I updated both sheets. You'll have to tell me how you feel about how I worked with the bass on "Walrus Cove." Other than that:
Dino Domain
- m. 4 is missing a melody A in the RH on beat 1.5.
I don't quite hear what you're hearing in this measure. Is it quieter than the other notes and I'm just not picking it up?

Treetop Rock
I got these things for you as well as the v26 articulation reset. The last thing is I think the rhythm in m. 51-52 isn't quite right. Let me know what you think about all the above.
All seems good. You were right, the rhythm was ahead by an eighth, so I moved it back.
