if you manage your time wisely you should be able to partake in both if you want to!! especially during the early couple rounds of s3xmoditmania which are not particularly difficult to get past (and voting periods as well). and also there are still plenty of people who are not in s3xmoditmania at all

I see we're starting with 16-bit this time... Which means my options are either Deflemask or run a s3xmodit through a converter. Where's all the 8-bit love?

(Yes, I know format unlocking is a thing. That doesn't change the fact that I have no idea how format unlocking works though >:C)

EDIT: controversy apparently

Am I allowed to soundfonts in FL Studios? Or do I have to use the programs specifically listed in the Lyceum?
Level 24 Mixist
post #87601 :: 2017.07.09 7:28am
  Jangler liēkd this
If you are making a wildchip, then you can use soundfonts.

Otherwise, you have to use the programs listed since the formats ask for the native file format rather than just an audio output.

^, although the lyceum's list of trackers/sequencers/compilers for any given format isn't necessary complete. for most formats it technically doesn't matter what software you use as long as your entry is the right file format.

^ can i liek this twice? recently there has been a trend of downvoting/criticizing songs because of the tools used and that is completely unacceptable imo

Cwitsh hi

addint to A-zu-ra, Jangler, Sinc-X I'd add that

for the current battle I only see 4 formats being promoted (chip battle art, pc engine/turbografx16, sega genesis/megadrive, snes nintendo/superfamicom)

We aim to respect the console's original limitations: what's technically possible and running entries on original hardware (despite the tools used to compose them or if custom tools were used. For that to happen on the consoles listed we suggest which tools to use)

With fl studio you would create tunes that "would sound like" the target consoles but they couldn't be played back on them.

wildchip hasn't been added to Summer Chip VII (yet) which would allow you to use fl studio.

I've been hoping for another format to get unlocked after all of the available formats were submitted, but I don't see that happening.

Don't worry, I don't think Puke would host a major chip battle without the Vic20 format. I'm sure he'll unlock more formats soon.

this seems to be a throwback to summer chip 5, which only had 6 formats or so?? i dont think there's going to be unlocking
Level 23 Chipist
post #87683 :: 2017.07.10 2:28pm
If there isn't any format unlocking like with summer chip V, this will probably be the most boring summer chip as usual, just like two years ago.

  Sinc-X, Lia, NerdMcBoon, growley, m9m and puke7 liēkd this
yeah this is a little weird so far. i'm also hoping that more formats are unlocked once puke7 isn't somewhat awol

but otoh (here's where i get mean) god forbid you try something outside your comfort zone. even these three are all great formats; if a compo like this is "boring" to you it's probably because you and people who share that perspective didn't make an effort to make it interesting. i would personally love to hear more hes and sgen entries in general (and maybe spcs that take advantage of the neato stuff that snesmod has developed?)

botb majors are more than a dumping ground for premade nsfs and wildwhatevers. i understand that people prefer to write for certain formats and that's fine. but e.g. adlib is my main thing and even in winter chips it only shows up maybe 2/3 of the time, and you don't see me complaining :P

i'd be down with this if there were other formats other than snes, hes and genesis, like 2xSAP or AY. quite frankly i hate working with snes because of amk, i hate working with genesis because smps it's quite wonky, and deflemask's ui is terrible. same goes for hes.

i'd rather do something else, like 2xsap, adlib, god forbid c64 w/ goattracker or whatever.

Sorry about the AWOL status. Detroit is my vacay - been putting together Ikea furniture and wedging an air conditioning unit into the wrong kind of window among other social things.

Added a bunch of formats; added a week extension. Honestly, should have started this before game jam. Compo will probably end in September if another extension occurs. Request formats moars...
