[Suggestions] Music cues and an intro graphic change
« on: July 28, 2016, 01:39:00 PM »
I would like to suggest that for the graphic STORY9.png (graphics/intro-graphics/) be revised to use the helmetless version of Mega Man's graphic, seen here:



Also, for the music cue for the "A NEW CHALLENGER!" text at certain points of the single player campaign, I suggest that for certain chapters, play the following instead of MM3SEL:

MM1 Chapter: MM1SEL
MM2 and MM9 Chapters: MM2SEL
MM4 Chapter: MM4SEL
MM5 Chapter: MM5SEL
MM6 Chapter: MM6SEL
MM7 Chapter: MM7SEL (can't find a non-RM4FC cover)
MM8 Chapter: MM8SEL (can't find a non-RM8FC cover)
MM&B Chapter (which, for some reason, has no music playing in the current build): MMBSEL (no 2A03 cover for this one exists, as far as I know)
MMWT Chapter (which, for some reason, plays MMWTVIC in the current build): MMWTSEL (2A03 cover by E253MechaShadow)

I just always find it odd how each map uses the boss and victory themes appropriate for the games they originate from, but the New Challenger cue is almost always from Mega Man 3.

I think it was probably done because it sounds very upbeat and exciting, which is suitable to the new challenger situation. I don't know how I feel about having it changed, I'm a bit half and half on it, but it would be kinda cool to see the iconic theme being used more.

Not an unreasonable request, but definitely not one that'll make it in time for v5a.
If we do end up doing this, the earliest it would appear is v5b.

Bump!
Just to get more public opinion in: I like the STORY9 suggestion, it looks neat and I can't get enough of that fabulous hair. Damn, Terra's got competition. no he doesn't
But I don't like the music suggestion, for reasons outlined in BiscuitSlash's post.

Well, then, how about this music track?
We already have music from the same game this comes from (SADCRED), so why not another?

Cause that is just a GB version of the MM4 boss battle theme, so technically already in the game.

You obviously didn't listen to the actual music, because it's actually different from the NES version. This is mainly because the previous game in the GB series used a version of the song that's more faithful to the NES version:

Yeah, and the beginning of the theme is way better, and that's probably the only part going to be used.
I still stand that MM3SEL should remain the new challenger theme.

I know this, but the thing I was getting at is that the song in GB is altered but is still technically a demix due to the GB not being as capable sound wise.
