Site News / NinSheetMusic's 15th Birthday! (+ New Layout)
« on: April 11, 2019, 07:58:45 AM »
Today, we celebrate NinSheetMusic's 15th birthday: Hip-hip hooray!

I wasn't too sure what to say but it got me thinking: 15 years is quite a long time for a website, especially one for video game sheet music. In that time, many vgm sheet music sites have come and gone, as have countless arrangers and performers. And yet somehow, despite our ups and downs, here we are still chugging along. I've been here for nearly 10 years, which isn't as long as some, but in that time many arrangers and performers have come through here. It's been a privilege to see them grow and in many cases, take what they've learned here and go on to do bigger and better things. Jamaha put it perfectly in a previous birthday post when he wrote: "It feels good to help people play music from the games they love." So here's to another 15 years and more!

Enough speeches, it's time for the champagne and presents! To celebrate our 15th birthday, we're unveiling our new site design! Yes it's been a long time coming but after months of work and plenty of revisions, it's finally here. A big thankyou to all the staff who road tested it and provided feedback. It wouldn't have been possible without you. We still have many more features and improvements on the to-do list so stay tuned for more in the future but for now I think I need a holiday!

Here's a brief run-down of the new features and general improvements.
  • It's responsive! So now you can finally browse on whatever device you like without having to squint or zoom in.
  • Your forum login now carries over to the main site. For those who are logged in, you'll see your username and you get a little user menu panel. At the moment this doesn't do a whole lot, but we have things planned for it. But it does give you a nice little notification if you've received a PM.
  • We have support for swipe detection on touch devices. So if you do a quick right swipe from the left edge of the screen you can open the mobile menu. If you are logged in, you can do a quick left swipe from the right edge of the screen to open the user panel.
  • For those on desktop computers, or devices with larger screens, you can use the Quick Browse feature. Just click on the yellow sign which hangs from the menu bar to open a menu that enables you to quickly jump to any series, console, or arranger page.
  • Sheet lists are now collapsible. We might make a user setting for this in the future.

Make sure to update when you guys are completely finished adding new series to the sidebar - I'll update my stuff to account for the new series once it's done. Doesn't make much sense for me to jump the gun & have to change my stuff more than once.
Okay, I think we're done for now.

Probably also with the full name "Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble" and then "Donkey Kong Country 3 (GBA)" or something like that. We usually put the full title as the title.
Fixed.

I wonder if there’s a way we could finally get Legend of Zelda in its correct alphabetical place on the side bar while you’re at it?
What do you think it should be or how do you think it should be written?

Yeah that's been suggested before but it's not possible with the ways things are set up at the moment. That might change in the future, it depends where things go.

Hi everyone!

Time for a proper announcement! Over the next few days we'll be gradually adding some more series. This should make some games easier to find and will also reduce the size of some of the longest pages. So if you can't find a game all of a sudden, chances are it has found a new home. The 'Other' and 'Super Mario' pages will be the only ones affected at this stage.

We are also preparing for *topseekritbigannouncement* in the next week or two so stay tuned for more!

Oooh nice work, I enjoyed listening to that!

Some of the symbols in the PDF didn't display properly in my browser but they were okay when I downloaded it and opened it in Acrobat. So maybe some of the fonts weren't embedded properly in the PDF? Bespinben would know more about this.

I don't know, maybe we'll have to set out on another archaeological expedition to find it!

Also, NinSheetMusk is the name of my personally-concocted brand of sheet music geek cologne. Thank you for mentioning it without the proper permissions. Prepare to be sued.
Did you trademark it? I didn't think so! I bet your name isn't even Mark anyway...

Story Telling / A New Discovery! [April Fools 2019]
« on: April 01, 2019, 06:00:29 AM »
Greetings NSM'ers!


Today I am writing to inform you of a new historic find which we have unearthed following months of exploratory work by the staff here at NinSheetMusic. Indeed, we have uncovered a missing section of the banner! This find will certainly rewrite the history books and we're very excited to be able to share the fruits of our labour with you today. But enough excitement from me, first let me explain how it was that we came upon this find.

It was a regular day in the NSM office: sheets were being checked, the mods were polishing the banhammer, I had just eaten my 64th banana for the day and Latios had fallen asleep in one of our many saunas. All of a sudden there was a loud cry... Bespinben had finally opened the Campbell's soup can!! ...hold on a minute, that doesn't sound right. Ahem, where was I? Oh yes, in a flurry of excitement, Latios came running and gathered everyone around. He said that a voice had spoken to him in a dream telling him that there was a missing section of the banner and that as the chosen one, it was his job to find the original Banner Tapestry and restore it to its rightful place. We weren't too sure at first, I mean the whole thing just sounded like some kind of prank. But Latios was truly convinced that the voice was real. He said it sounded deep and magnificent, like a voice from the heavens. Maybe even Morgan Freeman himself! Well that settled it: we would have to go on an expedition to find the original Banner Tapestry and solve the mystery. We consulted the maps and following the mysterious voice's instructions, we charted a course to a distant place across the seas known as Doko Cove. From there we would then go in search of the first Temple of NinSheetMusic.

So it was that on the 32nd of Demisember the staff of NinSheetMusic embarked on its inaugural archaeological expedition, with enough supplies of Belgian Cheese to last twelve months, courtesy of Concerto. After a teary farewell from Zeta and a performance of the Wind's Requiem conducted by Maestro, we set off with a favourable wind in our sails.

No journey is without its hiccups and ours was no different. A brief encounter with pirates almost put a premature stop to our voyage but we manned the cannons and defended our ship with honour. It turns out that Dudeman is quite the silver gunner! On a few occasions we almost ran straight into a maelstrom but he apologised for not looking where he was going.

Our arrival at Doko Cove marked the beginning of our journey into uncharted territory. From here on we would only have the voice of G-Han to guide us, channelled by our spirit guide Jamaha. So with our packs full and Jamaha comfortably relaxing in a portable sauna (it took four of us to carry him!!!) we pressed on into the dense jungle.

To cut an otherwise lengthy, protracted, extended, sprawling, prolonged, drawn out, unending, long-winded and somewhat repetitive story short, we did eventually find the temple. But when we searched inside, the tapestry wasn't there! It had gone! Vanished! All that endless wandering, all that Belgian cheese, and all those freezing nights with nothing to comfort us except our sheets, only to hit a dead end? No, it couldn't be, there had to be more. This wasn't some hideous Hollywood cliché, this was serious business. Fortunately the temple was quite comfy and rather well stocked so we just sat around and played Smash and had ourselves a grand ol' time. How did an ancient ruin on a deserted island come equipped with Smash, you wonder? Don't ask silly questions!

We did eventually decide that it was time to draw our expedition to a close and return home. The journey back was an uneventful one. We didn't see any pirates and we didn't even run into any maelstroms (oh dear, I hope we didn't leave him behind). Upon our return we were greeted by Zeta, who seemed unsurprised that our expedition was fruitless but we didn't think much of it. We were tired and just wanted to rest. That it is until a few days later when Latios called a secret meeting. He had remembered seeing a rainbow hair at the temple and suddenly it hit us all: there is only one person around here with rainbow hair...

Well the good news is that after some heavy interrogation by the mods and numerous threats of using the freshly polished banhammer, Zeta did eventually admit that she had the tapestry the whole time. Apparently she thought we were in need of some sunshine and fresh air after spending countless years up to our necks in sheets (Is Zeta suggesting that we smell? Preposterous! I assure you that we all smell absolutely divine. In fact, next month we will be unveiling our new name, NinSheetMusk).

With the mystery solved and the tapestry recovered we are proud to announce that we are finally able to display the full banner in all its glory! With 10 extra lines of never-before-seen pixels, I'm sure the NSM scholars will be hailing the significance of this find for many years to come. Who knew those hands had wrists? Unheard of. Simply mind boggling.


Once again I am truly excited to share this find with all of you today and I hope you will take the time to admire our newly updated banner.


Sincerely,
Deku
