Forum Games / The Seventh NinSheetMusic Superlatives! (Here They Are...)
« on: January 01, 2022, 07:22:59 AM »
Hello and welcome to the official thread for the Seventh NinSheetMusic Superlatives! We're still in the process of figuring out a host, but I figured I would get things going now so we can indeed have a Superlatives for 2021 (or I guess 2022) :D

SO! While we figure out who will be running this show, we're gonna go ahead and open up nominations for our list of superlatives! They were finalized over on our community Discord server, and they are greatly reduced in number compared to last time...

We are now in the voting phase! See details below!

2. Funniest
3. Most Chill
4. Most Likely to be a Closet Weeb
5. Biggest Simp
6. Most Sus
7. Highest Achiever

For the nominations phase, send me a PM either on the forums or DMs on Discord nominating who you think would be fitting for (preferably) each of the superlative categories! You can nominate as many individuals as you would like for each, and the top 3-4 will be chosen! (Or however many the host chooses.)

The nominations phase will last for 2 weeks, ending on 1/14/2022 (unless we need to push that back). If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out! And if/when someone steps up to host, we will arrange that transition, they'll get all the nominations, etc.

The voting period lasts from now until Saturday, 2/12 at 11:59 PM EST! You may access the form here:

Please reach out to me, Jake_Luigi, or Maximum256/NineLives if you have any questions!

After enough time (I take the blame for the waiting!), we finally have the results of the superlatives! See the post below for the full list! :D Thank you all for your patience and participation!

Welcome to the 9th NSM Arrangement Contest!

Current Announcements:


So what’s the theme for this contest, you ask? Here you go:

Arrange a video game piece in an unusual time signature!

General Guidelines (Please read!)
-Take a piece from any video game and rearrange it to fit an odd meter for itself. This can mean either taking a song in a “normal” time signature and rearranging it  to fit a more complex time signature, or just the other way around! You can take a piece with an odd meter and fit it to a more common time! In addition, SWITCHING TIME SIGS IS ACCEPTABLE, JUST MAKE SURE IT IS FREQUENT ENOUGH OR THE TIME SIGS USED ARE ODD FOR THAT PIECE!!
-You must make an arrangement using real instruments and that is playable by a reasonable number of people (yes, people, see the scoring categories for further clarification)
- You must submit .mus, .pdf, .and .mp3, (.midi and .musx Optional) files that contain your entry!
-After the deadline, the arrangements will be made public and polling and judging will start!
-Format anything specific like variation markings, expression text, etc. as measure-attached dynamics, NOT PAGE-ATTACHED TEXT so it attaches properly to the measures.

Here are the scoring guidelines:
Criteria (15 points): Does the new time signature fit well with the rearranged piece? Does the new time signature minimize awkwardness and effectively hold throughout the course of the entire piece?
Creativity (15 points): Does the arrangement establish a different rhythmic structure within the piece as compared to the original? Is this structure varied and dynamic? Does the new time signature successfully evoke an intended feeling?
Preservation (10 points): Is the original theme recognizable? Be creative, but don't go nuts and leave the source entirely. Someone who is familiar with the original tracks should be able to recognize your arrangement.
Orchestration (10 points):  Does the instrumentation complement the piece well? Is the instrumentation used to effectively combine with the new time signature?
Popular Vote (15 points): How does your arrangement fare in the poll conducted after all arrangements are revealed? Exact point numbers will be determined after all entries are in.
Presentation (10 points): How user-friendly is the sheet? This category factors in three components:
Formatting: No need to follow the site guidelines, but please include a title, subtitle (containing original song title and game), composer, arranger, measure numbers, and page numbers. If you have Notepad or are otherwise unable to follow these, just send me a message and I'll help.
Legibility: How clear is it to a performer what to play, and how? There's no need to go overboard on fingerings and the like, as long as it's readable (e.g. no excess of ledger lines).
Playability: Would a reasonably skilled musician/group of musicians be able to perform this? Make it sound nice, but make sure someone would be able to play it too. A note: If in Finale a notehead appears yellow, it is unplayable by the intended instrument in its natural form!
This last category is meant to be easy points - we're just making sure that your sheet looks nice and would be learnable by actual people.

What do you guys think of what we've seen?

Off-Topic / Understanding the 5th Dimension
« on: June 07, 2017, 03:25:35 AM »
As I was typing up the additions to the hypothesis last night, I started questioning one of the main points, and it was then that I realised this project should be made public. I figured that there are plenty of bright minds in the NSM community, much wiser than mine, that could take this hypothesis to the next level. It makes sense: the more minds involved, the more dimensions (HA!) that are added to the project. So if you want to contribute to the hypothesis, feel free to! Preferably, you'll give your thoughts here so others can evaluate it, but ultimately you can contribute in 3 main ways:
1. Challenge
Find something that doesn't quite add up in the hypothesis and tell me about it! This way I can figure out a way to make it more sound. If you see a possible solution, add that in so we can make the hypothesis stronger more quickly!
2. Add
If you can think of a completely new aspect of the 5th dimension that the hypothesis has not yet discussed, feel free to mention it here! Of course, you'll need to provide details and explanations to back it up, but the hypothesis in its current state is by no means complete. My goal is to have a reasonable understanding of the 5th dimension, how it functions, how it influences those in it, etc.
3. Comment
Engage in the discussion and offer your thoughts on other people's responses! From this, we can gain new perspectives and enriched dialogue, encouraging people to rethink their ideas and the main hypothesis itself! At times I will post questions that I encourage you to discuss on here; these questions are things important to the hypothesis that I have not been able to figure out, and am hoping others can.

With that out of the way, here's the link to the document I have running:
Check it out!
It's a bit sloppy and rushed, yes, but I don't want to write a formal hypothesis quite yet, until more points are assembled or backed up with sound reasoning.

My first question: in travelling at the speed of light (or past it), does one cross into the 3rd or 5th dimension? Or perhaps do they go somewhere else, if at all?

Help! / Good App for Mobile Arrangement
« on: December 29, 2016, 06:26:32 PM »
Does anyone here have a suggestion for an app I can get to arrange on-the-go? I have an Apple product, so ideally, it needs to be findable on the App Store.

Request / [3DS] Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon - "Dark Matter 02"
« on: August 27, 2016, 07:42:37 PM »

This song is amazing, and Ima try to blend it with another song (if it's ok with the arrangers of both). I believe these two songs will sound AMAZING together.

GET HYPE!! It's finally out! This topic is for posting about your catches, battles, trades, and more! I just now got the game, and it's too dark & rainy to do anything. But I'll start tomorrow!

Well, I finished Just Plains. Now the issue is that the PDF has 4 3's at the bottom of the last page. I tried to re-export the PDF numerous times, and still the issue is extant. Can someone try their hand at exporting the PDF to see if they face the same issue?

Music / E. Gadd's Rags
« on: June 14, 2016, 06:57:00 PM »
Hey, look at this! I can turn my arrangements into rags!
I know, it isn't much of an intro, but I'm in the middle of doing something else at the current moment. I have a few sheets that I need to arrange ASAP, so it may be a bit before the next rag is up. So for now, enjoy this one! (Feedback is also appreciated)

Here's Shifty Boo Mansion:

Help! / Any Mac users with Finale?
« on: June 02, 2016, 11:22:36 PM »
The title should be self-explanatory enough. But if you are, I need to ask you about something over PM or Skype.

Help! / Time Sig Blues

For a project in art history, I'm composing a song. Well, was. I kept getting a few measures in and end up dissatisfied as to how the song sounded. SO, I asked if I could do a ragtime version of a video game song, and when that was confirmed, I went ahead and chose my song: Shifty Boo Mansion. Two questions:
1. Is it "acceptable" to have a 3/4 rag (just a rag, not a rag waltz)?
2. If not, what are some tips on how to change the song from 3/4 to 4/4 (it isn't quick enough for cut) without annihilating the original theme of the song?

Well, the story has now begun! If you still want to join, you can, but it isn't likely that you'll be a main character, unless it fits into the story well. If you DO want to sign up, click the spoiler and give the information the questions prompt. This can either be posted here or PM'd to me. Questions? You know what to do.
 Info requirements and exemplar
A- What will your Pokémon be?? (Don't be a legendary/mythical unless you're wanting a one-time appearance for a battle or something, or mentioned in some prophecy. You don't have to be a starter, though)
B- Will you be a "main character"? (As in, would you like for me to keep you in the story for a long time, or just for a season or so?)
C- Will you be part of an exploration team, or what will be your role?
D- Will you be good, bad, or neutral?
E- If you are a member of an exploration team:
1. What will your team's name be?
2. Who all is in your team? (No more than 4, please)
3. What do you explore for (I. e., do you explore for a guild, a society, yourself, what?)
F- What will your Pokémon's (nick/)name be?
G- Level & Moveset (Don't be ridiculous, though. Start off reasonably)
H- Do you plan to evolve?
I- Home village
J-Were you a human? (I only want a few of these people)

If I'm missing anything else, please feel free to say something!

My info:
Name: Ricco
Level: 6
Moveset: Tackle, Leer, Razor Leaf
Role- Good, Exploration Team (name unknown yet, will be decided upon by team, and if you want to join, say so!)
I plan to be in the story all the way through.
I do plan to evolve at some point.
I wasn't a human, and my home village would be Serene Village.
I explore for the fun of it, although I may join the Expedition Society in the future.

The story so far:
Prologue: The Way Things Used to Be
Chapter 1: Setting Out

The Werewolf Game / TWG LXXXVII: The Amoeba Wand POST GAME!!!
« on: January 31, 2016, 03:53:44 AM »
To Noc: Ah, I see now. XDXD
Also, well, that game went down in flames... But I did learn from my mistakes! Heh heh heh... Something tells me that I'm just going to participate from now on, but it was fun, hosting one. It's something that I can say I've done! Gosh, there's a lot of data to keep up with! But oh well. That's what makes it fun! Role reveal:
BDS- Human (although he was turned on Night 2)
Brainy- Miller
Dudeman- Chef
AY- Mayor
TMP- Human
Fank- Human
Noc- Human
and last but not least:
davy- Brickbaker ( :P)

This game could have been better in more ways than 1 (or 2 or 3), but I tried. Any specific suggestions on how I could improve my ideas?
