Spring Tracks VII synclisten time with A-zu-ra!
BotB Academy Bulletins
You can watch the stream here.
puke7 may or may not pin it to the front page at a later time.


May 12

Starting at

11:00AM PST

I will be hosting the Spring Tracks VII synclisten on YouTube! Featuring some of the usual traditions such as:
- Playing all of the entries!
- Reading all of the description (even if it makes absolutely no sense to!)
- Reading all of the tags!

As well as some new things to spice things up a bit such as:
- TRACKER VIEW for all tracker formats (that's basically everything but allgear, mixbattle_art, midi, and mt32)
- MIDI VIEW for all MIDI-based formats (midi and mt32)
- WEB VIEW for all JS-based bytebeat entries (sorry Jimmy :v)
- ART GALLERY VIEW for mix battle art!
- During tag readings, me being super quiet, almost to the point of ASMR on smaller tags and me BEING HELLA LOUD TO THE POINT OF YELLING on larger tags
- Uhhh...I'll figure something out for the allgear stuff!

This time around, I'm going to be playing all of the entries by format instead of the usual submission order; what this means is that I'll be playing all the entries in one format before moving on to the next format. The synclisten will be split into two days, each covering a half of all of the submissions, giving us this schedule:

Saturday (May 12)
0cc, allgear, bytebeat, deflemask, klystrack, lgpt
(100 entries total)

Sunday (May 13)
midi, mixbattle_art, mod12k, mod24k, mptm, mt32, ntrq, panda, renoise, s3xmodit, snibbetracker, sunvox
(99 entries total)

If you insist on doing the synclisten IN tracker, I want to petition a moderator to resubmit my 0cc entry with the speed set to 5 since that's how it was when I rendered it for submission, and in a moment of stupidity I put the speed to 10 and didn't change it back to 5 when I submitted the .0cc.

Important things to note for synclisten prep
Tracker file modifications
- Set "stand together complex" speed from 10 to 5

Stream prep
[ x ] Make graphics for pre-playback screen
[ x ] Make graphics for battle art screen
[ x ] Make graphics for intro and intermission screens
[ ] Make scenes for each different tracker
[ ] Get different background videos for each different tracker
[ x ] Figure out something for the allgear display

Laundry list
- Vote and comment on all entries
- Roast Jimmyoshi on his bytebeat entry
- Spice up my golgi impersonations (which basically just amounts to saying "gay", "i love coding in ++c" and "fuck california")

Come on I get enough of that from pigdevil already... :c

(Also you'll be playing the renders of those that you can't play with other tools right?)

Yeah, I'll be playing all of allgear and stuff that I can't play on their respective tools as renders (that means your bytebeat will be a render)

Also I have a special scene for rendered entries tagged with a certain something....

format order hype!!!!!!! this is for me the easiest way to vote and compare. except when it gets to allgear. allgear voting is straight up hard in whatever way it is approached ;(

for sexmodit/ompt stuff it may be worth asking individual entrants what type of interpolation they want (or not want), if and only if it is not obvious from the entry descriptions. modxks are kinda redundant in the asking since most if not all will be no interp.

So far, my current idea was to show a screen like this
during pre-entry playback, but I've also learned that "showing the entry webpage" is also a thing that is commonly done during a synclisten :o

What do you guys think? Shall I do my own thing or should I shimmy in the entry page as well? (or at least more information than just "title and artist for the next and previous entry"?)

Hell yeah. Thanks for doing this, A-zu-ra.

Savestate++ kicked ass with the winter chip sync. Maybe he has thoughts concerning entry pages.

Stream starts at 11AM PDT/GMT-7 and only happens on May 12 now DDDDD:

Mother's day is weird. Here in my country Mother's day is today. It's always May 10th no matter what weekday it is.

In France it is the last Sunday of May, iirc.

And this is the first time I hear of it on May 13th (or the 2nd Sunday).

Weird holiday.

Anyway, thanks for the synclisten, A-zu-ra-san. Hope you have a nice Mother's Day.

Hmmm, A-zu-ra's picture looks like a cat being held by an anime girl while goluigi is a realistic dog. Interesting contrast. Would there be a fight if he came over, or would opposites attract? More on this story at 11!

Stream is up!

Also stream start may or may not be late depending on when I get back from the gym and potentially breakfast + lunch.

So uhhhh I pulled a golgi and fell asleep on stream D:

Will continue with the last 3 formats when I'm free tomorrow (I'll announce it beforehand on here) which means there is gonna be a day 2 after all wow

Itinerary for tomorrow's gonna be a messy one, but it basically boils down to:
- Redoing Renoise and finishing the last 3 formats
- Replaying all of the Allgears that were played in mono today
- Maybe replaying from mod12k to panda for those that tuned out late

would be cool, if you could redo mod12k to panda c: /
