Off-Topic / This might explain some things
« on: January 16, 2020, 04:05:24 AM »
Hello guys. This might be my last forum post ever because I'm finally admitting... My first sheet, Manhole, was plagiarized from a different person's MIDI file. And by this point, I could have totally been off the hook—I mean it's not even on the site anymore—but I don't want it on my conscience any longer, so here we go. Guys, I've got a lot to spill:

On May 31, 2018, I made my first sheet. Just, y'know, googled "Game & Watch Gallery MIDI" and picked the first result and adapted it into a sheet. I didn't realize that those MIDI's actually took people time to make, I thought they were just ripped straight from the game. Looking back, that was a dumb thing to assume, but eh, hindsight's 2018, yeah? (Whoever even still has the archives from the Updater server, you can see in the first file I submitted for Olimar to edit has the same staff names as the MIDI file from that website.) So then, y'know, that sheet gets accepted, and that was a pretty happy day. Over the next month and change, I continued to do that exact thing for Octopus and Fire and Parachute, but luckily I wasn't able to get much progress with those before:

On July 23, 2018, in the Discord server (in #submissions), Olimar, Levi, Maelstrom, Brassman, etc. had a conversation about MIDI's and plagiarism and all that. Boy, that was a scary day because then I discovered everything I did was wrong. Instead of confessing right then, I did what I could to hide it. I deleted the files on my computer, I deleted the Octopus submission that had been sitting there without feedback for a time, I edited incriminating forum posts (these two were the only ones I can remember, but there must have been more). And then I decided I'd develop my ear training enough so that I could just redo Manhole but for real and replace the old one. So that's when:

On July 30, 2018, I decided what I had done to try and develop my musical skills wasn't working, so I created my most infamous forum topic of whole time, lol. My new idea. For those unaware, I became a little hostile asking people to suggest me songs to arrange. This isn't an excuse for being inconsiderate of others, but this will at least explain why. Everyone was asking questions about how I arranged my first sheet and I felt like I was being attacked. That topic lasted literally only four days before I edited every post in it to the same thing and Bree locked it. Altissimo, if you're somehow reading this, I'm really sorry for how I treated you.

On June 1, 2019, after realizing that sheet had been up for an entire year, I finally took initiative to take it down. Well, more like, I sent a confusing forum PM to Latios, not wanting to share the details of my fraudulent sheet, and then like… after two days and getting THC involved, Latios finally removed it. To both of you, that might explain why I was so incredibly nervous to say anything, and uh yeah.

Look, I’ve spent my fair share of time feeling really bad about this and stressing over it, and I’m just done. If you want to punish me, punish me. If you want to remove the Game Select sheet as well (even though that one was not plagiarized), go ahead. I honestly don’t know what “accordingly” and “depending on the circumstances” entail in this case, and if you think I haven’t obsessed over the exact wording of the forum rules, well think again. I’m sorry for all this, and I wish I had the courage to speak up in a matter of days instead of years after learning of my wrong-doings. I recommend you make it more clear in the rules or somewhere the exact nature of plagiarism, so that if there is another person in my situation, they’ll know exactly what is acceptable and the consequences of doing such. Finding NSM and playing its sheets is an integral part of me finding Discord and my dearest friends, and I wish the history of me appearing there was a little more pure, heh, but… it’s too late to fix that. I apologize to and appreciate all who had to deal with me in my transition period to who I am now. Thank you for reading all this. Hopefully I’ll be able to see you guys around. Guguuh!

Guide Submissions / Finale NotePad: Tips and Tricks
« on: January 06, 2019, 03:03:52 AM »
So I’ve heard you’re stuck with Finale NotePad (often nicknamed “NopePad”). NotePad is inherently very annoying, but at least we’ve created several work-arounds here at NSM. There’s no more time to waste, let’s get to it!

Aw man! I can’t figure out how to add tempos!
Oh yes, for some reason, you can’t add tempos in NotePad without some help. Seems kinda like an essential thing, I digress. There’s a solution. Quoted here is Th3Gavst3r’s topic which helps you with that.

The dropbox folder
TheMarioPianist's Thread.

It's time to speed up the arranging process.

Included are Quarter, Dotted Quarter, and Half Note markings ranging 1-300 bpm.
To use them,
1) Go to the dropbox folder and download the template with the time signature your piece starts with.
2) Open it in NotePad, activate the Expression Toolp, and double click on the measure you want to add a tempo marking to.
3) Scroll down through the expressions and select your tempo.
(there are 900 of them you can't miss it)

This method even allows tempo changes in the middle of the piece, which is awesome. Also included are most of the default expressions available in the full version of Finale, such as the Swing! tempo marking, rehearsal marks, extended dynamics options, and more.

Please note: This does not "install" tempo markings into NotePad. The markings will only show up if you are editing one of the template files.

Basically an upgrade to TheMarioPianist's Thread. Good inspiration that.
Thank you Th3Gavst3r!
Note: This will only work if you use his template from the beginning. If you forgot/didn’t-know to use his templates, you can copy your music into the template. (If you don’t know how to do that, read the next part.)

Oh no! I need to copy my sheet into another sheet, but I don’t know how!
Don’t worry. You won’t need to copy every single note individually into the sheet, thankfully. Wow, that’d be a nightmare.

1. Press the “Restore Down Button” in the Finale NotePad program. (There’re six buttons in the top right. Minus, rectangles, x, minus, rectangles, x. Hit the rectangles button in the lower (and smaller) set.)

2. In the “File” tab, select the other file. (If you’re lucky, the file will appear in the set of four files it gives you. If not, use the “Open” command.)
2b. Feel free to re-adjust the tabs. It gets a little crowded.

3. Some of the few keyboard shortcuts NotePad gives you are Ctrl+A, Ctrl+X, Ctrl+C, and Ctrl+V (thankfully). Use Ctrl+A with the Selection Tool to select all of the music, or alternatively if you only want to copy one staff or an excerpt highlight it with your cursor. Use Ctrl+X, +C, +V to cut, copy, paste respectively the music into the other sheet.

Oh wait! My measures are too small and all the notes are squished together!
Yeah, that’s a major problem. While this solution isn’t exactly the best, it at least works.

1. Locate the misbehaving measure.
2. Ctrl+X its contents into the clipboard using the Selection Tool.
3. Throw in as many 16th or 32nd notes are required to get the correct spacing (using the Simply Entry tool).
4. Ctrl+V the contents back into the measure.
5. Rinse and Repeat throughout the pesky measures. (Preferably in chronological order in the piece. Generally they tend to fix each other that way.)

There’re probably more “Tips and Tricks” I’ve forgotten to mention. Feel free to correct any mistakes I made (Notepad mistakes as well as grammatical or spelling mistakes), or ask any questions about the frustrating program that is NotePad.

Off-Topic / Happy New Year! and Thank you
« on: January 01, 2019, 07:17:23 AM »
Happy New Year e'erybody! I guess it's not 2019 for everyone yet, and not everyone uses the Gregorian Calendar... Happy New Year! 2018 may have been the worst year ever from my perspective. Let's see... my anxiety attack, my father eloping, my father lying to me, my father bringing in two annoying children without telling me... yeah, it's safe to say that was the worst year ever. But, y'know what... it would've been way worse without you guys. All of you. I guess this applies to the several other related Discord servers and such. Thank you all. First off, you brightened my days even when I was in the darkest of times. Jokey messages, discussing things that don't matter, memes, everything, you won't believe how much those things bring me joy. Second, you gave me advice with tons of stuff, my homework, my anxiety attack, my stupid "family", etc. You guys are so helpful. It's entirely possible I'd be in a darker place if you hadn't helped me with all of that. Third, you just helped me as a person. You've helped me learn how to be respectful and converse civilly. I'm sorry for all the things I said when I first joined NSM. I can see the world is much better place when you think positively. Once again, thank you all.

My New Years Resolution is to spend more time making sheets. I really enjoyed it when I made the few I did, and I'm excited to see what else I can try to transcribe. Anyways, that's all for now, thank you all, you guys are the best!

Help! / My new idea
« on: July 30, 2018, 11:54:38 PM »
Mods, please delete this topic. Every time I hear the “doo doo doo doo” notification I set up for this forum, I fear that it is going to be about this topic. You have no idea the relief I get when I see that’s it’s just Hurt and Heal or E. Gadd’s Word of the Day. And when it’s about this topic, my heart starts pounding, “Is it Altissimo going for a rebuttal of what I said?” or “Is it just going to be somebody telling us how they got into this community?” or “Is it going be somebody telling me I was being aggressive and I should be nicer to the people trying to help?” And I shouldn’t even mention the DM/PM’s, both on the forums and on Discord. I’ve gotten so many. (Only one of which I appreciated, you know who you are.) This topic has been the only thing I’ve been able to think about for the past couple days. I can’t concentrate on anything else. I can’t sleep. At this point, I don’t even know what I think anymore. All I know is that this topic was a terrible idea and I knew from the beginning that it was going to be a mess.

The longer this topic isn’t deleted, the more I'm just going to bring more attention to how it’s still up. I asked you nicely to do something about it, but I don’t know if this is your sort of revenge or whatever. I hope it’s just inactivity. I can’t deal with this topic anymore.

[OP as of November 7th, 2018:]

Of course, I mean the modern versions not the beeping stuff.  :)

G&W 1
[GB] Oil Panic

G&W 2
[GB] Chef

This originally contained:
G&WG1: Manhole,
G&WG1: Oil Panic,
G&WG2: Chef,
G&WG3: Mario Bros., and
G&WG4: Mario Cement Factory.

Since then, Manhole made it on site and was removed (now it’s hidden in my PA thread), I’ve attempted Oil Panic (didn’t go great), I’ve completed Chef (needs work), and the other two are on my to-do list (not happening for a while).

Here’s a not-dead link for Oil Panic if you so dare to try it:
