Soundtracks for 1.8?

Post by Blue_Bummer » Fri Jun 04, 2021 11:33 pm

This isn't a thread begging for 1.8. This is a thread discussing it's development.

In 1.7 the Soundtrack Devs surprised us with the tracks from MM:The Wily Wars, plus a bonus track from Mega Man Battle & Chase (Secret Roll theme)(!).

With the recent listing by Luigi calling for a soundtrack artist, I couldn't help but wonder which soundtrack set could be picked next for 1.8. 🤔 Seeings how Roll's theme shows that any classic themed Mega Man game is fair game that opens up alot of possibilities.

Currently we have no idea what patch 1.8's focus will be. I personally am guessing they will continue to add content from Mega Man's one through eleven because there is still a ton of content available to adapt to MMM. If this is true then the soundtrack Devs may not do soundtracks from GB MMs or MM&B games and instead save them for later.

Which soundtracks do you think will be done for 1.8, or which do you hope to see? Pick two.

Note this thread is about soundtracks specifically.

Several people are voting in on MM&B and GB MMV, is this because people want those soundtracks or they are hoping the Devs move on to those games for 1.8? 🤔 I personally doubt we'll see content from those games in 1.8 (including soundtracks, but honestly I could be wrong).

I would think since there are so many soundtracks from other games the Devs might save MM&B and MM GB soundtracks for whenever those games are featured in a patch.

There are even more classic themed Mega Man games than I listed that the Devs can pull soundtracks from. So there's a ton of music available to be translated to 8-bit style.

Mega Man Battle and Chase Soundtracks

If the Rush Marine utility was ever added it would be fitting to have soundtracks that were created for the Mega Man:Rush Marine mobile game. Trailer and theme sound tracks.

Wily and Right's Rockboard:That's Paradise

TONS of great soundtracks. The list is far more exhaustive and abundant than most realize.

Considering that 1.7 introduced a soundtrack from a classic themed Mega Man game that was not part of the main series, the new standard for soundtracks is any of these are possible.

I'm honestly wondering why Mega Man DOS is in the list. Cause in the original games its just silence.
My idea is to compose new, original tracks for the DOS levels in Mega Man Maker.
Why is it called an oven when you of in the cold food of out hot eat the food.

ah, I see. Although I would really like new original Robot Master and Wily Stage music tracks in the game, maybe the whole DOS thing in Mega Man Maker could be reimagined, like the tilesets and backgrounds, but that's another story.

If developers continue to focus on 1 to 11, we really will have more PU and Battle and Chase music. There is a big possibility that they will continue to add content 1 to 11 to balance the amount of bosses in MM3, MM4, MM5, MM8, MM11.
And I agree that there is still a lot of things in the original games that can be brought into MMM.

Absolutely! Here are some excerpts from soundtracks available from other classic Mega Man games.

My two favorite tracks from Mega Man Soccer

NeedleMan theme

Dr. Wily Theme


My two favorite tracks from Mega Man Battle and Chase

Over the Top (Rockman theme)


Duel


My two favorite tracks from Wily and Right's Rockboard:That's Paradise Great thing about these is they are already 8bit NES chiptune tracks.

Cold Island


Mode select (being a bit short perhaps this could be edited into an extended version)

Good choices. I think we can consider MMX musics a possibility.

It's been already done by Kackebango. Those tracks can be heard in MM8BDM fan expansion DOS Reborn made by Magnet Dood and his team.
From what I can tell, these are fantastic options for representing DOS content.

My idea for this is that they be music from games other than MegaMan, if in MMM there are weapons that are not from any MegaMan game, why not? This can also happen with music, these are the ones I would like to see in MMM:
Beach theme: https: //www.youtube.com/watch? V = rBNxR7niIl0
Underwater theme: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GvXvmrzRb0w
Corneria: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MzbjS3MwKJg&t=0s

This would be very useful since for example in MMM there are no beach or airship themes.
After a while away from MM, I think it's time to go back

Considering MMX games content is on the deconfirmed list, what causes you to believe they may change their mind? 🤔

Even though "Kaze yo Tsutaete" track is the first track that isn't from an standard Mega Man title, it still comes from a "Classic" themed Mega Man game... Meaning it's still in the universe of the original Mega Man and it's characters.

Since those tracks are done by a different team of independent creators I think that lessens the chances of seeing them in MMM. 🤔

The MMM team have yet to use any content from external fan games other than MaGMML. Would ❤️ to see that someday though. Ah, MM fan game universe content in MMM. 😍

Yeah you're right, the music additions haven't been scaled up to the entire megaman universe.

I think people mean either original songs for the DOS stages or existing fan-made songs for them.

Which I was unaware of. My whole point of including Mega Man Dos in the list was for a joke. :P

With a fan made soundtrack for Dos that's probably what people are voting for, which is highly unlikely. :|

But there weren't any original songs.
There literally were just PC beeper noises for jumping and shooting. O_o

I don't know if the team is up to recreating it given that the recreations for Mega Man 9 and 10 received flack for inaccuracies.

I was wanting this poll to be all about the soundtracks but I think I might have butchered it by choosing poor wording. :?

By asking "What soundtracks people were hoping for in patch 1.8" might have people voting in favor of MM&B and GB soundtracks to reflect their hopes of the Devs moving to those games next patch.

Well, one things for sure, whatever soundtracks come our way it's a win/win situation. There's certainly plenty of new soundtracks to potentially look forward to from Classic Mega Man themed games if patch 1.8 continues to follow the example set by the "Kaze yo Tsutaete" track. 8-)
