I just wanted to visit and say hello and get involved in SPC AddMusicK stuff. I'd recently found a rather interesting discovery when googling some of the filenames for my old MIDI files (HDD died, backup was stored on a ZIP disk of all things, desperately searching because khinsider had my old stuff for a while, and I wanted it back).
Stuff's like a dusty old photo you've been searching for. In this case music. So I found it, uploaded here, and decided to make an account to introduce myself. (on the hacking forum, as music hacking is what I'm into)
The hack it made its way into (Grand Poo World - Echo Base [vanilla dome level replacement, bgm for the background music in the challenge pipe autoscroller]): https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=section&a=details&id=17289
In the tag information, MallowMan was the old IRC account and the name on the VGMA forums. Interesting. Its funny how things float around on the WWW like this until they find a home. This isn't a report, not mad or upset by it in any means. I was thrilled that someone considered this valid enough to dump over and evidently it made it into a hack as well.
If there's anyone here on over from VGMA (probably really old, I was there 2001-2005) (they used to use UBBThreads before we got a nice upgrade to PHPBB), [cough most of us used EsperNET, slow internet...] I'll go ahead and send a wave and a greeting as MallowMan for you all. The track is just as I saw it in my head, on the SNES in a Mario game, and I'm very pleased. Thank you to the person that put the work into it.
People that I knew, if you are here, I'll include a list so we can connect up: Lunar, The_Sorcerer, ForteBlast, Pongball, Blank, Teck, DrFruitcake, Yarharhar, Ray4552000 ... (probably more, but my memory fails).
And to the rest of you, hello from VGMA...I guess.
