    Note: the notation for the drums is all wrong, and the panning/preset choices for some of the instruments are wrong as well, but the actual sequence data is exactly the same. If I find one that's literally identical I'll update this post, but for the moment this is as good as I can get, so I'll continue to believe that the game's creator did some mixing himself to make it work for GS until I do.
    List of men who make yellow work:
    Wario
    Pac-Man
    Greg Wiggle
    end of list

    When Christmastime comes around I do rather enjoy listening to Here Come the Reindeer and Jimmy the Elf.

    The hero from DQ8 looked nice in yellow.

    Aika from skies of Arcadia looked good, too.

    excuse me, I said men

    As for DQ8's pirate boi, ehhhhh I guess, but it seems to me like yellow isn't the main focus color there. It looks to me like an equal balance between the blue and yellow was intended. They're both primary colors, and while they do complement each other, they still more-or-less cancel each other out as far as if one of them was the main color or not because of it. Symbolizing how the character is Joe Everyman, his clothes are a sort of variety pack of the Big Four (which is, as we all know, the four Uno colors)
    To elaborate on my own choices,
    Greg's color is yellow because his pants are black;
    Pac-Man's is yellow because, while red is also a primary color, it's a warm color, and that coupled with the orange gloves leads to a gradient sort of vibe;
    Wario's is yellow because it's complemented by three cool colors, and the rather eye-drawing hat's very obviously majorly yellow.
    Do you think it's possible to make a good remix/waahrangement/whatever you call it out of this classic dance track by Wariofying it? (Basically replacing the beeps with Wah's and using a Wario Land sound for the countermelody.) I think I'd be hilarious.

    Hardly hilarious; somewhat amusing, though. It might be fun, though. We'll see...

    Dunno, I have seen pretty funny remixes of this song using samples. But you're right, let's see...
    I just discovered that Crash Bandicoot's Acoustic Piano preset uses a sample which is eerily similar to Wario Land 4's Honky-Tonk once you add an octave to a given note, and especially when you turn Modulation to max to simulate WL4's sample looping really early.
    Do you know if there's a standard name for that electric piano-like sound that you can hear in so many 80's ballads? (You know, that sound that's also used for the melody of SM64's Dire Dire Docks.)

    I'm not sure! I think it might be a Wulitzer EP, but it's been a long time since I've used that preset. I'll have to check.
    Nope, not that. I guess it really is a Rhodes after all.

    But yeah, uhhh, I think it's a Rhodes electric piano, but with a Chorus effect, an extended Release time, and a slight Attack value (meaning the part where it reaches max volume is delayed a tiny bit, in this case; in other words, a really quick fade-in, if you didn't know how Attack works). It's also worth noting that I'm pretty sure there's more than one kind of Rhodes, or at least more than one setting for its timbre-- one of them's bound to be the right sound. Other than that I don't know. That sounds right to me, though, so take it for what you will. Congratulations on (presumably) making it out of hospice, btw!

    Ah, I see. It's a bit more complicated than I thought, as I didn't expect it to be a sound that is different on each keyboard brand/model.


    And yes, I'm out of hospital. For over a week now, and I feel much better.

    Well, I don't know, I've never actually seen a Rhodes EP in real life, I've only got what my plethora of different soundfont patches tell me. As far as I know, the Rhodes Electric Piano is just an electric piano with different settings of fancy to choose from.
    If you could have one of them voice act for you, would you rather have Lorenzo Music or Sterling Holloway

    this is actually a really fucking difficult decision
    @CM30 So, what's the point of HIGNFY? Is it supposed to be a sort-of "here's the latest headline, which we will riff off of, with a bit of a game show on the side" type of deal?

    HIGNFY? Have I missed something?

    Oh, Have I Got News For You?
    Pretty much. It's quite funny.
    When it's zoomed out like this my current PFP looks like an adorable little horned Fraggle+Wild Thing hybrid.

    I NEVER LISTENED TO THE WORDS, OKAY!?
    TIL (albeit via listening to the game's sound files) that you can pull boxes in Half-Life 1.

    VG Music reminds me of the internet from the good old days, where people ran sites out of a love for the topic rather than because they raised a ton of venture capital or what not.

    careful there mate, your old man is showing.
    Even back then the internet was much the same as it is now, the only difference is the technology was still new and the dumbfuck fat cats weren't any good at making their websites yet, assuming they could even be bothered.
    I can hardly see what's so "good old" about dial-up, and everything in general being so primitive and shit that VGMusic's "This may take a few moments depending on the speed of your connection and the size of your file" disclaimer actually applied.
    Uh oh, Magma got rid of his pfp, deleted his flavor text, and limited who can see his profile. Admittedly I've never been the biggest fan, but I hope he's alright :-(
    One of the most annoying things about being retarded is all the fucking shit interrupting my work. It makes you so frustrated and angry, because it doesn't fucking matter but won't go away so "it might as well". Like fuck off, you're destroying my sense of flow and taking me out of my zone for THAT? It's like trying to walk to the shops or w/e and a fucking bespectacled man jumps out in front of you every fifteen meters, like goddammit I still have a good ways to go, get the FUCK out of my WAY
    Okay, question time gamers:
    Live and Learn?
    or Open Your Heart?

    Open your Heart is great, but I'm gonna have to go with Live and Learn for this one.

    Also, @Shoonsh
    There are two kinds of people, those who put "Wario Land" before the colon, and those who put "Super Mario Land 3" before the colon.
