I thought it would be good to start a little poll as to what they'd like me to put together on my little break.

So what would you folks like to see me put together and release? Another Midi file? Another wall set? Another guard, perhaps? Or a Midi and IMF collection of tunes that didn't make it into my TC?

Note that my upcoming TC doesn't count in this poll, as anything listed in the votes is (or was, if you vote for the tunes) going to be used in the TC, anyway. Very Happy Plus the fact that the game just has too much work left to be finished anytime soon. Sad

I'd ask Loki or Ringman what's left to finish off in the DieHard Wolfers Forums mod. Seems to me that a last boost of effort would bring that project to a releasable stage, which I look forward to.

I'd like to see some music. Kinda hard to get an IMF converted from a Midi to a proper sound.
Maybe you got some Very Happy
What is this kind of break? Vacation?

Honestly, the best thing you could put together is a vacation. Don't take that the wrong way, but take the time off and enjoy yourself. The break from doing things all the time may bring you back with more energy and vigor. Enjoy the time and relax, go camping, swimming, waterskiing, partying ... anything... Just have fun.

I already have that info, actually. My current position is re-doing the pointer for the menu. I haven't made up my mind for sure what I want the pointer to look like. I'm thinking if I do something on the side, a better idea than a skull with flashing eyes will come to me for a pointer replacement. If not, I'll just do the skull thing. Shrug

BT - Your point is well-taken. I hope you realize though, that part of how I enjoy myself is by creating. That's why I started the poll - to find out what folks would like to see me create more of. Smile

Lwmxynedtodth - it's nothing more than a little vacation. There are several IMFs that are definitely *not* making it into my TC, and it won't hurt to include the Midi versions of those tunes as well. Music

I figured as much, as I had/have the same problem. Four years ago, when I was in Thailand, I did the same thing. Even though it was a working trip, I took the time to enjoy everything around me and took advantage of it to endulge in the people, their customs, and such. I loved my job before, but doing that brought me back with much more vigor, and allowed me to be a whole lot more creative.

But, no matter what you do, enjoy it, and hopefully it will energize you. There's nothing like burnout when you go too far the other way. Trust me.... lol... Been there too.

I already had the doubts about this post. I'm always camping with a tent, so there's no computer in it for me:P.

That's what Laptops are for. Silly. Smile Anyway, the set won't be coming before July 4th, so rest easy! Cool

BTW, a newly composed tune will probably be released along with this IMF/Midi set (A tune that I've wanted to compose for a while, actually). An additional idea came into my head for it earlier this week. About time, too; it's been lying around unfinished for months now.

Uh. If I had electricity. And if I had, I'd better buy a caravan.
A tent with electricity, that's possible, but it would ruin the "survival" feeling.
And I am going on holidays to get out of the usual days at home, to rest.

As far as the "getting away from it all" approach, yeah - you have the right idea. However, I'm a writer, and I really need to have *something* to do my work with when I get an unexpected inspiration.

Anyway, rumor has it that my work hours just might regain their sanity next week. They'd better. I'm pretty sure that if the department back out on this plan at the last minute, heads will roll.

I know that, but I'm always on vacation with a notebook and a pencil (just a thing with lines to write on, from paper),
I have also unexpected inspirations in all kinds, so I write it down. But yeah, a laptop can be more effective.
Oh, and a cellphone, an MP3-player and some candy Very Happy

Writing using a pen or pencil takes me forever - I only get about 10% of it down but I've forgotten half of it. My writing speed was one reason I always had such trouble in school. Sad

Well, the real story(line) is in my head. So I write down to remember. For example, the name lwmxynedtodth came up
when I was cycling from school to my home. I stopped and wrote down.
Writing speed is not really an isue, I'm good at grammar.

Thanks for the update, Leo. Of course, if any of you folks want to vote for something not on the list, please tell me what is. Thanks! Thumbs Up

Thomas - Thank you for your kind words about my music. There are three different pieces of music to choose from that I can put together from July 3rd to July 4th, none of which have a name yet.

For those who remember me mention the tune "Something's Awry", I'm not going to try finishing that one up on my vacation, since it'll take at least a month to compose. There's a good reason "Awry" will take so long to complete - it's simply a tough piece of music to compose.

The tunes that didn't make it into the game have been submitted to the Dome. They'll be available in both Midi and IMF format, except "Aztec.IMF", of which I lost the IMF's Midi version in a harddisk wipeout.

And sorry, but the Midi I tried to compose over the past two days isn't complete; had to make two unexpected shopping trips, and walking to those places and back really kills time. Anyway, I'll let folks know when the tune is done. Smile

Brian has posted the tunes on his site. Except for the new tunes I haven't finished yet (I'm currently doing a bouncing act with two), you can find the tunes here:

Thanks, Thomas. Smile I really hated leaving BGM11 and those Super Fighter tunes out, but to make a TC feel versatile and yet uneven, sacrifices had to be made. Oh, well.

I've found myself bouncing around with composing four different tunes at one time, and there's a fifth one I remember from fifteen years ago that I might put in the TC as well. Considering that I'm getting more work done with these tunes bouncing back and forth with them rather than just working on one tune at a time, I think I'll just keep doing the bouncing act for now.

Two songs (aside from "C.P.B.", which is from an imaginary arcade game I literally dreamed up 15 years ago) have titles, but beware - the "cheesiness factor" of one song's title is high until I come up with a better name. Might be good for a cheap laugh, though. Anyway, the first song name is "March Into Action", and the second song title is "Sneaking Around In Sneakers".
