The UNOFFICIAL Mario Kart 8 Arrangement Project
« on: January 09, 2016, 11:19:28 PM »

Welcome to The Unofficial Mario Kart 8 Arrangement Project!

For this Unofficial Project, we will be focusing on Mario Kart 8.

Spoiler
[close]

WHOSE IDEA WAS THIS???
Myself (E. Gadd Industries), Sebastian, and TheMarioPianist.

What is an “Unofficial” Project? How is it different from an Arrangement Project?
For starters, the Arrangement Project is a project focused on arranging as many songs as possible from a particular game; the game is selected by a poll of forum members. The sheets arranged in these projects are reviewed by updaters, just like regular submissions. The differences in an “Unofficial” project are as follows:

•   Most likely no updater review
•   Completed sheets must still go through submissions

Other than that, it is basically the same thing. The goal is to either gain enough popularity that this becomes the official project once Undertale concludes or get featured in an update of our own.


What you need to know:

75.249573 kilograms of very important info
-If you begin work on a sheet, please post claiming the song so that I can edit the OP (original post) with the updated information. This keeps multiple people from working on the same song at the same time.
-Can't arrange? No problem; critique other sheets that either have not been looked at yet, or have just been revised. The Updaters will NOT be looking over these unless they decide otherwise.
-There is no limit to how many sheets one may work on simultaneously but I would recommend that every sheet you take you must complete or don't take it at all. Also, if you claim a sheet but then are unable to work on it, please post that you are relinquishing it so that I can remove your name and free the song up for other arrangers.
Who to contact for questions, comments, and/or concerns regarding this whole endeavor:
Yours truly. But Sebastian and TheMarioPianist would also be willing to give you a hand!   

We will be giving out a common template (just like in the Undertale project) so all the sheets will have the correct game/formatting info. And so it will be less of a hassle if we get an update.
Template

Here is the OST. We will be using the official names which these are.
OST

Our Goals for the Unofficial Projects:
We hope to arrange a sheet for every song in the target game. We will be fixing all musical and formatting errors that arise in each completed sheet, so that once they are submitted it should be less of a hassle on the updating crew. In addition, we hope to get the formatting up to par and make every sheet we do as top quality as possible! (For more on formatting, click me!)
Our ultimate goal is to get a swift update for each unofficial replacement project we do.

Questions you might ask:

What games will you be doing?
We will be starting with the games in the "Super Mario" section and depending on how fast we go, how many people are interested, and how daring the Updaters are feeling, will tell where we go next. For the time being, we will be doing only the "Super Mario" section.

Why the "Super Mario" section?
Well, there are 2 reasons actually.
1. TheMarioPianist, Sebastian and I are big Mario fans, and we do have a lot of Mario fans on NSM who would be interested in helping.
2. "Super Mario" and "Pokémon" are two vast libraries of video game music, and those will continue to gather a lot of popularity. For that reason, it only makes sense to arrange the new songs in those categories as soon as possible.

What if no one is interested?
Simple, TheMarioPianist, Sebastian and I will do all the songs ourselves. Our only goal is to get valuable and quality sheets on the site. But there obviously has been some interest, so I don’t believe that this should be an issue anytime soon.

If you have a question that is not above, PLEASE ask! :)

Shoutout to TMP for giving this project the touch-up it needed!
It would be of your best interest to not encroach on the realms of Super Mario Sunshine sheet arranging. Others have tried, and for them it proved to be fatal.

Mark me down for Twisted Mansion, Bone-Dry Dunes, and Super Bell Subway (Underground), but it might be a while before I get around to them. Not sure if I'll ever get around to that last one for a long while, so if someone else wants it...

Oh, and I'll take Wild Woods too.

there's also a huge difference in quality between 2000 songs and 2010 songs
The difference between 2000 songs and 2010 songs is 10 songs.

I found a link of what looks like the majority if not all of the mario kart 8 tracklist (they are all the extended versions, however)

That note aside, I'd like to claim Hyrule Circuit, Dragon Driftway, and Waterpark

Things to consider:
- It's a better idea to color code by progress, not arranger. This makes it easier to see what's actually been done and what hasn't been arranged yet.
- There are problems with your listing, including wrong names ("Waterpark"--> Water Park"). ALL the tracks should be included, especially since there is an official soundtrack; just because it's a track not from a course doesn't mean people don't want to arrange it (See: the 3 sheets on site that aren't for courses). Here is the list of tracks.
- I'll claim Sweet Sweet Canyon. Tentatively.
- Also, playlist of regular-length versions.

Working on it as you're reading this.
Note: I'm doing things one bit at a time, so if you get on here and see one of the points fixed and none of the others, be patient

Edit: Everything has been updated!

I'm claiming Yoshi's Circuit (GCN), Rainbow Road (SNES), and Excitebike Arena.

Couple other things to point out:

  • Tracks that have two different themes (Eg: Above ground and under water) should probably be put in one sheet, with the two parts labeled. Someone else weigh in on this idea please?
  • At some point, we should go through the retro tracks and check if any of them are nearly (if not completely) identical to their original counterparts. Most have been reorchestrated or changed, but if any are the same, there is no reason to do them again.

12Mari0, are you going with TMP's suggestion and taking both versions?

At some point, we should go through the retro tracks and check if any of them are nearly (if not completely) identical to their original counterparts. Most have been reorchestrated or changed, but if any are the same, there is no reason to do them again.
Would you like to discuss via Skype, TMP?
