It was this thread that gave me the idea to be honest.
I have a fair bit of free time on my hands to be honest, so just give me
a shout if anyone wants music doing for anything, and obviously it's not
going to be under any copyright or anything, all I ask is that my name
be mentioned somewhere in the credits.
Thanks for the offer! ATM the trouble some games from Parallel Realities use
modtracker format music. The blobwars maintainer is currently looking into
replacing it with similar sounding modules from modarchive.org
, which carries
modules which match Fedora demands with regards to Free-ness for music, but is
not truely Free music (no modification permitted).
It would be nice to have really free music for blobwars (and others, but lets
start with blobwars) esp so that it can be used by distributions with stricter
licensing demands for music like Debian.
If you download the blobwars sources from their website you will find a music
directory there with various music files. We are basicly looking for music with
the same feel. Also I don't know if you can do this, but it would be great if
you could create modtracker music for blobwars again, as that has a certain
feel (a certain cheesiness) and is very small.
If you cannot do modtracker music we need to think thisn over a bit, as
currently blobwars is only 8 MB, adding .ogg (mp3 level compression) music
files to that is a huge size increase.
