ATTENTION - MM8BDM "Music Packs"
« on: December 16, 2010, 01:35:21 AM »
It's come to my attention that a lot of people are making their own custom music packs for MM8BDM. Some of these contain original 8-bit scores or music from other classic titles. This is perfectly fine.

However, I've noticed an alarming amount of music packs that contain mp3 files from OST's of games. OSTs that you usually have to buy. This is essentially the same as warez, and thus clashes with one of the forum rules:

Quote
KEEP IT LEGAL - Do not post or link to warez. Self explanatory, do not link to free stuff you should have to pay for.

Sure, they're packed away in pk3/wad format or whatever, but anyone with half a brain can figure out how to extract them and convert them back into their regular format. Because of this I will be removing topics containing these packs completely from the board. People should also report any posts that contain these links, and of course if you've posted a link that I haven't found yet please have the courtesy remove them yourself. I will also remove topics that I ASSUME are from ripped straight from OST's unless proven otherwise afterwords (specify how it's free in this topic!).

I know this is going to anger people but I simply can't have warez here now that the game is fairly well known. If you feel I've removed some important info from a topic that you didn't obtain in time, please let me know and I will fetch whatever you require from the bin. I also have no problem with these packs personally, and you're free to discuss, upload and link them... But not here. I hope the other moderators can concur with this and offer their support.

Feel free to discuss but don't expect this decision to change.

Wait, I got the soundtrack from here...-LINK REMOVED-

Does that count? Thanks for telling us about the music packs, though.

I'll take down my music packs by myself, then since I'm not quite sure they're fully legal.  (Although, I do find irony in doing this on a site dedicated to hacks using characters without the parent company's permission, but such is life)

I appreciate the rule 'n all, but couldn't you have let us take the .wads out before our nuking our threads?
I know we could just ask for stuff back from them, but still...

Err, I don't THINK the Kirby OST is buyable, so I think it's legal.

I'm pretty sure it is, because it came with remixed tracks.

I know this is short notice but it's the fastest way I can do this and continue development as quickly as possible (I was half way through the new Roboenza version when I noticed this). As long as you can prove it's legal to buy the said OST I will restore the topic fully.

The way I see it is Capcom haven't sued my ass because they're pretty lenient towards fan based material. Not all companies are, and you know this from other big fan made projects getting shot down (usually at the prime of their development). No doubt there's some companies who don't like the fact people are using their music that they paid big bucks for and sharing it on the internet and would respond to it critically.

Think of it from my perspective. If there's a chance of one of these companies saying "hey uhhh ITS LAWYER TIME" I'd want to cover my ass as much as I can. Personally I think music packs are fine BUT I think it's safe to say that not many people care for all these tracks and would rather listen to their own music which they can obtain themselves. Also not to mention Skulltag is NOT an mp3 player! I don't understand why it's necessary to make these unless a modder needs musical resources, especially if you ALREADY have the tracks before making the pack. Go grab Winamp, make a playlist, turn the MM8BDM music off and enjoy.

That site looks very dodgey. I would search around for the OST on the web and see if you can find any sites with a price tag attatched (or even better copyright info)

I searched and couldn't find a place where you could buy the Kirby Super Star Ultra OST.

Mine's fine, yay!

Yeah, I know why you did it, and I know Capcom is very lenient.  I just thought it was ironic.  I would have done the same thing if I were in your shoes.

No worries Mike, I never intended to make Music Packs, nor to download Music Packs that contained Music that I never heard/never do want to hear when I am playing. In fact, most of the time I dont even listen to the in-game music and just listen to something else via Winamp or Windows Media Player.

Because music packs are so easy to make, why doesn't everyone keep them to themselves?

It may not necessarily be the DIFFICULTY of it, rather that someone may (for some idiotic reason) may not have time.

D'you know how tedious it is to make these things?
Besides, if a server has the Wads, fun things start to happen!
