As much as I hate to say it, I think there has to be some sort of "official" decision about using SnoozeTracker.

There has been some discussion about this on IRC already. Some say it's OK, some say it isn't.

Imo it's not OK, because it basically forces evryone to use SnoozeTracker to seriously compete in the format, and even more importantly, it ruins the aesthetic of the format, as the results don't really sound like SMS music anymore.

Maybe a special format would be the best solution (if there is enough interest). I mean, we have 5 different NES formats to clearly differentiate between the different settings etc. Something similar could apply here.

I realize this is kind of a grey area and it's hard to make a decision, but that's why there should be a discussion and a definitive decision.

This is not meant to be some sort of mean attack on the people using SnoozeTracker btw, it's quite the opposite. I think a clear decision would be best for everyone. Otherwise SnoozeTracker entries would probably just get low scores from people who don't think it's OK to use it.

I don't expect Snoozetracker to really catch on anyways just like SuperNSF. Some users will use it, but often to somewhat lower quality and users prefering normal sounding SN7 entries and thus voting those higher than Snooze entries.

Besides as I see there are some users who already have problems with Snoozetracker working/opening is already tackling Snooze from building up a userbase altogether.

So before a debacle is started just like the SuperNSF discussion that was posted in an old bulletin here on BotB, let's first watch if the use is sustained (or is used at all to be honest).

Atleast that is how I perceive the situation.

I don't even know what SnoozeTracker is. There are only 3 NSF formats, not 5. The majority can agree that a tool isn't appropriate, but that won't stop n00bs from using it if it works in common players and hardware. It's much like me wishing that everyone would use bytebeat in its simplest form (an abstract algorithm against time) instead of making tools that produce accessible tunes that will run in bytebeat.

Yeah, you are probably right. This will probably sort itself out. I just thought it would be better to bring it up here, than to discuss it in the comments of the Snooze entries.

I counted FTM and 0cc as well, by the way. That's how I came up with 5 NES formats.

@puke7 I just made a test track using Snoozetracker, which plays fine in windows vgm player, and winamp, but when I rendered it to an SMS rom using Maxin's SMS VGM player, it didn't come out right AT ALL. Until the player has rom output, or someone makes a rom based vgm player for it, I think the entries should be moved to "all gear" or "wild chip", since for the time being they can't play in an SMS emulator and/or hardware. Of course, if the rom output gets addressed then I think they should totally qualify as legit SMS entries.

Thought I should post it here since there are already entries using the tracker.

hey has anyone given any thought to wanting to host a synclisten?

just in case youre new to this concept, its where someone on youtube/wherever streams every entry and botbrs get a chance to listen, comment in real time on it. the idea is that it encourages people to vote while all listening together.

also said hoster often forgoes 'sleep' and So Called /jorbs/ because there are so many entries to stream

if noone steps up to it im available to.... but id much rather let someone else have a chance!!!

Okay, If you did a collab, edit "hundO" in my comment to "99.871%ndO" or whatever it would be. Lucky for me, I don't have any friends to hold me back from that sweet sweet hundo 😏😏😏😏😏

Sorry I missed the stream, I completely forgot what time it was (.___.;;

Also, really well done everyone!! I think I favorited and relistened to more songs on this one than any other compo on here! BOTB GROWS STRONGER EVERY SECOND

I had a fun time participating in this year's Winter Chip, I got to try out lots of new formats, and I also had the pleasure of listening to so many wonderful songs! The talent here is insane. So much more for me to learn :O

Amazing competition, so much fire for a winter chip! I seriously can't believe I placed so high, there are soo many entries that absolutely killed it and could all qualify for first place in my book. Winter Chip is now my favorite holidai :D

sub NUBLETS it's getting cOoOoOoolld outside (?) and you know what that means?! time for wintershits on NADCAMP! unFORTUNEately, unruly bots and FREELOADERZ have already plowed through our paltry number of free donloads. i'm afraid that means thirteen will be ONE daallor until june 1st, then it will be set to pay what you want (ie FREE). better mark your calendar if you don't want to be bested by teh botz

Album trailer coming soon; I have the audio prepped

Also I'm doing a slightly different style of album trailer for this one (and maybe future ones)
