@Sky Yoshi
Quick answer: Yes.
Detailed answer: You can, though if you or someone else posts a render for your entry (that is, an audio form of the entry; renders must be in MP3, not WAV), it's up to you/them on how you want to handle the loop point. You or someone else has the decision to either cut it off completely at the loop or fade it out after a specified amount of time.

Ironically, these days I'm actually a bit too bored to go after these chips. I have heard so much music on Battle of the Bits over the years that my own nostalgia has been worn down in a similar way that so many SNES games have managed to wear down my video game nostalgia producing so many SPC sets. It's a very sharp contrast to 2012, and it is the major reason why I stopped producing entries regularly. Ironically, I also find trying to up my production values beyond the chip music that I have produced to be a waste of my time in the long run, because I find that the material I end up producing to be too boring (I cite my Renoise-produced songs, which for me have been aging very poorly for some unusual reason... and this happens to be the exact reason why I started, then abandoned, a S3XMODIT entry for Summer Chip VI: I realized I had already gotten bored of the song after producing only two patterns.).

I'm fine with it, I like learning how to use newfangled thingamajigs!

Besides, y'all have 27 days (as of the time this was written) to learn a new format! There's also a chance that an extension or two will happen.

Or maybe the prospect of having other formats introduced over time doesn't occur to many BotBrs since most will just post to the same 2-3 formats every year and call it a day.

I know I'm guilty of this (hi mod16k and MIDI) :x

I'm just going to be the one to say it. I'm not a fan of this idea at all. When I first saw that ChannelF was the only format, my initial thought was that it was a joke, and that the rest of the formats would be released the next day. But now I'm disappointed to see that's not the case. I get that you want people to branch out and try some of the more obscure formats, but I think ultimately you're just going to disappoint a bunch of people who already had plans for winter chip. For a lot of people, I think they'll just end up not joining at all instead of wasting their time trying to learn a format they don't care about.

I think that if you're going to make a huge change to the winter chip formula like this, you could have at least announced the change in advance through a forum thread or something. This way, people would know what to expect, and the community could decide beforehand whether or not they actually want this change. Instead, now it feels like you've just thrown a huge curve ball at us. "Oh, you wanted to do a MIDI this year? LOL TOO BAD."

I'm sure this comment will get a bunch of haeits, but I don't care. If the rest of the formats aren't "unlocked" soon, then I'm not too optimistic about the turnout of Winter Chip this year, and I certainly won't be entering if that's the case.

i am participating because i like compos, and regarding music i find a good idea to work with unconventional stuff; as i find it the only way to really improve my works

i do not think you complain about what other people feels, more objetively is the lack of a format you feel comfortable with

come on, cheer up! is always good for a composer to try unknown things

ViLXDRYAD: I'm not even against branching out; it's the lack of choice that I'm more concerned about. I even had a modxk in the works that I planned on submitting this year (something that I've never done before), but now I can't even do that. Out of the current formats, the only one I'm even remotely interested in trying is PC-98. Taking out the element of choice takes out a huge part of the fun imo.

for me personally, I really hope the more popular formats do end up being included, because I use these battles as an opportunity to learn and practice these formats, and to show off what I've done. I feel like I've come further in nsf and midi than in the last summer chip, and it would be a shame to not be able to share these with everyone!

Honestly, i couldn't agree more with Jimmyoshi, since i've been counting on Wildchip, or Amigamod/S3XMODIT, at least, and i don't think i have much interest in any of currently available chips (Channel F? Really?). I might try AY, if nothing better comes up eventually, provided i manage to overcome reluctance to learn it.

BTW, aside of my complaining, i can see the puke's point in making it like it is though. Anyway, still hoping for more

I hear much doubt from some botbrs about their fellow botbrs. This makes me sad. It only takes one entry in a format to unlock the next one. In the time all this typing has transpired someone could have done a mario paint already. I'm planning on announcing many formats and I'll do my best to keep one of the unlockables on the lesser side of obscuria.

Here's a personal rant and I expect a lot of hæit/people disagreeing, but whatever:

I don't have a lot of free time on my hands even though I have a (short) winter break and I really was looking forward to a new big chip major that isn't limited to x or requires me to do y. Like I said I'm still rather busy and when not a lot of people are going to do entries in here to unlock other formats, the format(s) where I was looking forward to make something for again isn't going to be present at this pace.

I know that your intentions of having a little twist to a 'traditional' formula is nice, no personal hate against you, but if I were to be doing something I liked doing that has its purpose why I did it crushed and doing formats that don't (really) interest me, that's something rather disappointing to experience then.
So just get rid of it or something idk

And I (hopefully) aren't speaking for myself, but for others as well.


Now give me that hæit

I came here to say pretty much the exact same thing that RazerBlue6 said. I would love to participate in WCXII but I am very busy with work and travel and unfortunately I don't have the time to invest in learning a lot of new formats.

As much fun as that sounds, I think the practical reality is that there are a lot of people like me who are busy with life stuff, and this style of compo will turn people like that away.

"It only takes one entry in a format to unlock the next one."

I have a feeling all this is going to do is encourage rushed low-effort entries in each of the currently available categories. I don't know about the rest of you, but it usually takes me about 1-2 weeks minimum to finish an entry for a major that I'm satisfied with. I guess ChannelF and Mario Paint are exceptions to this (I could probably do Mario Paint in less than a day), but a decent PC-98 can easily take several weeks to do, especially since it's mml-based. (More experienced PMD users could probably do it quicker, but given that the point of this seems to be to learn the new formats...)

It's a cool idea, but in my opinion something this experimental shouldn't be used on a huge battle like Winter Chip. Maybe it could work for a smaller side major or something.

As a comprimise (and because Stewboy upped a mariopaint) I have added two more formats : zx beeper and nsf. There are now 3 slots to unlock new formats! HOLY COW!!! :D/

Think of it like an advent thingamajig. There were plenty of Winter Chips of chipsmas past that didn't start until late January. Run away; flee in terror if you must! But, friends & botbrs, patience is a virtue. <3

Well, for those upset about the lack of formats, I have only been tracking for a month (my first deflemask module is dated 11/25/16), and I managed to learn Vortex Tracker II Improved today and just uploaded my first module as an Atari ST SNDH file. I spent a little bit of time last night looking at the manual and a few of the demo modules, but it only took a few hours today to learn and compose a semi-decent sounding track!

So, if you need an easy format to pick up, I can vouch for VTII Improved! It's pretty straight forward, so give it a shot. What can it hurt? I believe in yooo!

1) atonality is covered by the article 2) dissonance is covered by the article

this probably doesn't belong here but 3) dissonance is not really totally exactly covered by the article because dissonance is often defined as a unstable sonority that implies resolution to a stable, consonant one, and not simply as notes that "clash". an understanding of dissonance in this way is important in functional harmony

What was the general consensus last time the issue came up of including stereo + FM expansion in the same category as the standard PSG only?

man, I wish I wasn't lazy and finished writing 3kr and ported it to pc-98 like I wanted to
but then I'd run into the horrible awful wall of finding pc-98 programming docs again

I'm tempted to do some kind of xm2mml thing (or something with an basic-to-parse format, maybe mod2mml because unpacked patterns and whatever, I'm lazy) to make any weird formats with only a compiler easy to use, would be less effort than finishing 3kr...
...but what will actually end up happening if I did that is that I'll have two unfinished projects instead of one unfinished one and one finished one).

@null1024 Well, if you want to use a converter, I'd recommend you use this one
since it's PMD-compatible. But since it won't convert anything aside from notes and some information like panning and instruments changes, you gotta do the rest by yourself (setting up the instruments, the header, etc.). I made a conversion of my VIC20 entry
for testing purposes.

(edit: fuck, I think I misunderstood it, but well, this info is useful for the lazy people that don't want to learn MML so I'll leave it here)

SN7+OPLL is technically Sega Master System, so until there is a new format that differentiates the two, it's an obvious advantage. Use and exploit it. :)

* Mario Paint (done)
* mod12k/mod32k
* NSFC
* PC-x801
* SMS
* SNES
* TIA (maybe?)

and if time permits, literally everything else.

That's a lot of tracks to do D: and in like 2 and a half weeks? Dunno if it's gonna happen.

no, an AY/YM entry must be playable using only an AY-3-89127 PSG or its variants.

edit: never mind; i am wrong; those things are indeed done through the same sound chip, and it doesn't have to be spectrum-specific. go ahead!

was initially excited that you came on to spread something that i think a lot of us feel about winter chip. the derisive jabs toward indirect persons do not exactly paint a beautiful artist in good colors.

Being neo-nazi isn't cool by any means, but bringing up your personal prejudices like this isn't cool either...

Also why would a bunch of people you personally dislike prevent you from participating in BotB anyway?

Shit. Hadn't kept up with this thread. puke already told me directly on discord:
"@xyz39808 no, it is not; north american sega master system only"

(though technically you could mod an NA sms to have it (but that's like modding a ZX to have double AY (which is not allowed in plain AY format (so definitely not allowed for SMS))))

@Robyn
The D110 appears to exhibit the same limitations as the MT-32 (32 partial voices, 8 channels + 1 rhythm, etc.), so if you have that, I'd say go for it :o

HOWEVER, the MIDI you create for the D110 must at least be playable on Munt as well without any significant differences, but if the D110 is basically a pro version of the MT-32, then I assume it won't be that different.

Only if your MIDI authoring software doesn't support them. I'm sure there exist tools to splice them in so you don't have to do it by hand. The other quirk is that Roland SYSEX messages require a checksum calculation
.

The only player I've found that plays MT-32 patchbank midis correctly is Windows Media Player.

Afaik TFM export 2xYM2203 VGMs with no SSG support, doesn't it? I don't think that's possible to run on a PCx8... But you could try using S98 Player
to see if it works out. Just keep in mind the VGM must be under 128kb. If it does work, submit the generated .d88 file c:

I might be a no-show, even for the SNES format. I'm still producing music, but I have mostly abandoned the SNESMod sound driver (except for prototyping), and I'm instead distracted with producing another soundtrack for a new sound driver developed by someone else (it's not SNESGSS: it's a brand new sound driver in development).
