In my most recent Git commit, I added to Re-Hoard an entire song. I already extracted the song from WarioWare: D.I.Y. using the WarioWare D.I.Y. Editor, then converted the song to the Pico-8 format using MIDI2PICO. I then realigned the tracks. (I could have trimmed the song to 3 channels, which would have freed the 4th channel to sound effects, but I wanted to keep all of the source material somewhere in case I needed the original, albeit converted, song.)
The actual song in the actual cartridge is actually a loop of one track, which is itself a loop of one phrase.
The issue is that, when I played the tracks in the Pico-8, they sounded terrible! The only thing I liked was that looping phrase! I mean, that looping phrase not only sounded great, but also fit the theme of the game, whereas the other tracks have poor sound and composition while themselves sounding “tacked on” to the good track… which they were. The only reason why those bad tracks were there was because, when the good track is just one looping phrase, that track by itself would sound repetitive quickly. This is even worse in a game that can theoretically go on forever.
My embarrassment was my uploading the track publicly. At least barely anyone knows me by the time I am writing this…
Right now, I am considering making the “good” track the rhythm while I add another more varied but minimalist track. I thank my previous music study in this.
