Zelda 3 Challenge - Music Requests!I realize most people won't be able to help with this part of the game, but I know a few people who are great with handling SNES music. Hyrule Magic allows the insertion of new music, replacing old songs, but it can be very difficult and confusing, especially for someone with no background in music. I have one person who has already provided new music for the game, but because he's so busy, I'm requesting help from anyone else who might be able to transpose music.
2.) All submitted music must be usable in the actual game! A remixed MP3 may be awesome, but it just won't work in Zelda3C. The best method, as far as I know, is to start by creating new music in MIDI format. From there, the music must be inserted into the ROM via Hyrule Magic. Patches for the ROM are necessary for this kind of request. If I get a MIDI or MP3, I might still use it as a guideline or inspiration.
3.) Music can be lifted from any other SNES game (or even NES) and submitted with whatever changes are necessary. You can even start with other games' music, change it a lot, and then submit it. Do NOT take music from any other hack, period. Don't submit music that you might use for your own purposes later. Please don't take music from Zelda Classic or other current sources.
4.) If an entry is accepted for use in Zelda3C, it will either be used as-is, or changed to work better in the game. If the changes are considered major, the musician will be notified first.
5.) Valid entries are patches of ROMs which contain new music. Do NOT send me any ROMs! I will automatically delete any ROMs that are sent to me. I will not view them, nor save them to my computer.
