I will try to discern whether or not I am able to participate in this instance. Decidedly, Nintendo's 1989 8-bit handheld device is a refrigerated category.

i actually submitted my very humble entry, but is this old tracker (Paragon 5) suitable to this format? - (asking it because i couldn't find it in the lyceum)

I would wait on HUGETracker, as it is not as fully featured as DefleMask. there's also FTM2GBMC, which requires Java, and FT_NSF2GBS which requires lua.

Well. Doing my best to have something by tonight but it’s been busy and I spent most of my time on Spring Tracks. There’s not many entries here at all; maybe an extension would be appropriate?

not sure what to do

its a monthly and we haven't done an extension on monthlies yet

but yeah -- it would be nice to be closer to 15+ entries :shrug:

Spring Tracks probably has been the bigger focus for people, so this was to be expected

Seeing this, and the Spring Trax format ranking, I just got an idea. How about making it so that you have to earn the right to submit wildchip and allgear (maybe also s3xmodit) by making a bunch of, ahem, "real" chiptunes first? Perhaps with a point based system. Say, it costs 7 points to submit a wildchip or allgear entry. Posting an entry in a rare format could give up to 3 points (entries should score above 20 ofc). Entries in common formats like battleart would give 0 points. Perhaps it could even be a fluid system, ie. the more rare a format, the more points it gives, average common formats give 0, most popular formats cost points to post. Or maybe not even a separate point thingy, just use a sizeable b00n payout/cost. hmmmhmmm don't mind me, just a random thought...

spring trax is not chiptune focused
its track focused
lots of the tools are chiptune focused so i guess it must be chiptune
the site was founded on remix culture
but then chiptune activity took over

making things more cumbersome to participate with the site by denying access to the more accessible formats unless they do the more obscure, esoteric formats is surely some form of gatekeeping

it would also be an encouragement for people to do the bare minimum at some other formats to get access to the formats they want, or, you know, just not participate at all because of the obscure, esoteric gate

also this is just another feature request i don't have time for

Aw bummer, I started messing around with game boy in deflemask much too late a couple of days ago and it has been much too hot around here for me to concentrate. Oh well I might be able to save the idea for something else. I'll check out what others have been able to do here and maybe get a few more voting points or something haha.

On a similar note, I actually remember the format unlocking majors years ago. Only a few formats (usually the rarer ones) were available at first and then puke would go in and add more formats to the battle as entries got submitted to each format that was available at the time. The format unlocking...didn't seem very well received.

I always thought Spring Trax was tool focussed. And looking at the format ranking, ppl aren't using them tools. That's kinda sad if you ask me.

True what you say about gatekeeping tho. That's def a problem. I think if the system were b00n based it'd be less of an issue though. Most everybody would usually have nuff b00nz to post their wildchop and algaer, but it'd be an extra nudge towards 'hey, get outta your comfort zone'. Plus, b00nz would more useful as a side effect.

Either way, it was just a random brain fart, not a feature request. I'm perfectly fine with you not wanting to spend time on this.

i think spring trax was def tracker/tool focused originally

but a lot of definitions are kind of moving targets over the long term

Hey, folks, I pushed the results back by an hour so we don't conflict with a GameBoy based streaming event over at featuring Johan Kotlinski (creator of LSDJ) and Defense Mechanism starting at noon EST. I'll embed it on the site.

So our typical result stream will be on the BotB youtube channel starting at 3pm EST. (also embedded on the site)
