It's finally here, yes!!

To-do list:
[x] Wild Chip
[x] Mario Paint
[x] NSFc
[ ] AHX
[ ] 4k/8k
[x] PC-x801
[x] ZX Beeper
[x] SMS
[ ] Game Boy
[ ] Atari TIA
[x] SNES
[x] VIC-20

I kinda feel bad about begging for AHX all the time and then failing to do an entry for it, ah well. Eight entries isn't bad.

"It's the most wonderful time of the year" and also nice set of format choices. Out of personal preference, I would have perhaps included Pokey to the list, but e.g. my beloved Commodork-formats are there, so you might end up seeing at least an entry or two from me (depending on whether I can whip myself out of the lazy geezer mode). Let's see how this goes :D

Also haven't actually written yet any Plus/4-tunes, so that could be potentially something to look at. I did give a very quick try for the Knaecketraecker some years back, when it initially came out, but apart from a some crummy quick doodles, didn't have motivation for the learning curve at that point in time to finish any actual tunages :D

Did I just got out-strobed by a none-strobe? what is the world coming to! As per our agreement, I will be available on Discord after work, and
we will discuss the terms of agreement which we can throw right through the window, feel free to start on something random in the meantime!

Edit: Well of course it won't be glitchless ;)

Edit 2: Added on discourse, let the insanity begin!

Edit 3: I will have more time on the weekend due to work,
so I will most likely be more responsive on Saturday and Sunday.

Edit 4: I can't stand having an uneven number of edits.

Once I can finish up another thing elsewhere, I'm gonna cram together NSF, TIA, POKEY, and maybe PC Engine if I have enough free time.

I hope I can work this out.

while making my songs for all these formats, I'm noticing just how nice having the ability to detune a note is
and how many trackers and converters don't have the ability to just do it (like, you can use 2xx, but that applies it several times over the course of the note)

@YQN What do you mean by this? I had been wondering how submission would work. I read somewhere that the file will be "converted to mp3" or something like that, and was afraid that the converter might not have DMA and/or Uwire support.

conversion is done manually. you'll submit your entry-file (depending on the format you're submitting to) and afterwards you upload a mp3 render your created. you can, on the other hand, just ask people with real hardware, if they render the entry for you.

@607 as kleeder said, you first submit your sndh, and then the render in mp3 format. you don't have to upload them at once, technically you can even upload it after the deadline (but if it's different from the sndh you'll get into serious trouble)

also, be advised that the use of DMA is highly controversial in a aym battle! ^^

with that being said, good luck! :)

I'm kinda hoping to see more PC-98 entries.
BambooTracker is super easy and very cross platform (even installed a copy on my Pi 4).

also, I'm liking the Genesis turnout here a good bit, good stuff

No Winter Chip entry this year :'( . Master's degree entry test is coming soon, so I'll have to devote most of my time studying.

Good luck for everyone, hope to see you again in Spring Tracks or Summer Chip.

I'm not surprised about that! I think that for next year I will try to do a tune that would play on ST (no E), but I had a fun idea for a seasonal composition which incorporates PCM samples of feet in the snow (I mean, it is the _Winter Chip_ after all ;)), and I figured it would be allowed!

It's not officially forbidden but some users could downvote your entry because of that (2 extra channels of DMA are a significant increase of possibilities that an Amstrad cannot do). If it's just about playing samples you can make the YM play them, they will just sound dirtier :)

@607 just make up a meaning and stick with it for the whole votings process :)

don't hesitate to use the search engine and read the lyceum articles ;) the battle page says "The voting categories can be interpreted as one sees fit, as the names of categories have no specific meaning."
https://battleofthebits.org/lyceum/View/Battle

my unoriginal interpretations this winter:
heart magic > how much i like the track
brain tech > how technical it is
bleep squeeze > unrepetitiveness
deep tweak > quality of sound design
the winter of our pants > how wintery it sounds

have fun voting! :)

I tend to consider two categories as "composition" and the two others as "sound design", each for the technical and the subjective beauty aspect. Which one is which? That may depend on the name, or I'd simply go with what I feel; though I stay consistent through all of my votes.

The exception is always the last category (the "in pants"). That one always accounts for the "awesomeness" factor or how impressed I was with the entry.

If working on a single format costs me horrors, I don't even want to think about what it would be like to do a song on every tracker. It would drive me crazy.
Still, this time I tried my luck with 4 different formats.

really should look into using a different tracker than RAD or finishing 3kr (and making it work on the OPL2 and not just the OPL3) lol
I kept doing dumb garbage like hitting F4 (paste pattern) instead of F5 (play song) or F6 (play pattern) and there's no undo

this is a lot less of a problem on an actual desktop keyboard since F1-4 and F5-8 are physically spaced a bit apart, but I'm on my laptop

I also kept trying to write a Game Boy song, and getting absolutely nowhere.
