Default Music for games

Also you mentioned earlier mp3, which is NOT an acceptable format, the
content should be available in a Free format (wav, ogg theora, flac -
that is, for games that not use synthethised music).

Just a thought (unrelated to the Games list): how about a sound theme
for the Fedora desktop, to go along with the graphic theme in
personalizing the Fedora experience?

I don't know anything about all that stuff, I'll just make a wave file
(as per your idea below), and give it to the fedora comunity, and let
them do whatever they want with it, providing my name is in the credits
for the game.

A full set of sound events to accompany the various events happening on
the desktop (login, logout, application start/close, error message, etc.)


See here: http://0pointer.de/blog/projects/sixfold-announcement.html -
the part about "The freedesktop Sound Theme".


If you are interested in this I invite you to the fedora-art-list where
you may find other people interested on helping with it.

Hi Hans and Chris,

The Debian Games Team is following your steps in this, and fully
supports your efforts. If you need or want any help from us at any
point, just ask. We'd be very glad to do as much as we can.

Greetings,
Miry

I am not personally a gamer, and I am visually impared, so I cannot test
the greater number of games, what I can do is create music, and I would
like to offer to help create music for any game that wants it.

If my help is required, just email me on this address
(chris.norman4@ntlworld.com), with a description of the game, and what
musical piece(s) you want, and I'll see what I can put together, and
produce the music in either mp3 or wav format.

Sounds like you would be a good person for Hans de Goede to work with. We
just had to remove or modify several games with non-free content,
including music, and I bet Hans would jump at the chance to have something
custom-created.

Hans?


It was this thread that gave me the idea to be honest.

I have a fair bit of free time on my hands to be honest, so just give me
a shout if anyone wants music doing for anything, and obviously it's not

Hi Chris,

Thanks for the offer! ATM the trouble some games from Parallel Realities use
modtracker format music. The blobwars maintainer is currently looking into
replacing it with similar sounding modules from modarchive.org, which carries
modules which match Fedora demands with regards to Free-ness for music, but is
not truely Free music (no modification permitted).


It would be nice to have really free music for blobwars (and others, but lets
start with blobwars) esp so that it can be used by distributions with stricter
licensing demands for music like Debian.


If you download the blobwars sources from their website you will find a music
directory there with various music files. We are basicly looking for music with
the same feel. Also I don't know if you can do this, but it would be great if
you could create modtracker music for blobwars again, as that has a certain
feel (a certain cheesiness) and is very small.


If you cannot do modtracker music we need to think thisn over a bit, as
currently blobwars is only 8 MB, adding .ogg (mp3 level compression) music
files to that is a huge size increase.


Regards,

Hans

Unfortunately, my firewire mixer that I usually use has just gone back
to Maudio for repare, so I will not be music making for about a week at
the least, but it will be a top priority job when I get it back. In the
mean time, if someone could tell me where to get the blobwars sources,
then I can get my ideas roling.

I don't know what mod tracker music is, and I can only do music in wave
or mp3 format, I will need to give it someone else for conversion.

HTH.

I also wanted to point out that The FreeDink project is looking for
sound and music. The code was freed a while back and but the sounds
and music could not be. A reference:
http://www.dinknetwork.com/forum.cgi?MID=94985&Posts=14
and the lost of needed sounds and music:
http://www.freedink.org/doc/sounds/

Someone recently submitted FreeDink to Fedora in three packages; I
haven't had much time to take a look. Those review tickets are:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=459908
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=459915
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=459916
I believe the game simply plays without most of its sounds.

You can find the blobwars source here:
http://www.parallelrealities.co.uk/download.php?proj=blobwars&file=blobwars-1.09b2-1.tar.gz&type=zip


I don't know what mod tracker music is, and I can only do music in wave
or mp3 format, I will need to give it someone else for conversion.



modtracker music uses samples, together with information when to play which
simple at which pitch (and volume) to create music, it was very popular in the
amiga days, and on gravis ultrasound cards.


Regards,

Hans
