Category Archives: Bugfixes/new features

Either some new features of the website or fixes of certain bugs. Usually causes even more bugs to happen though…

DJ the S 24/7 radio

I’m back with a little big site update! The website now features a radio station that plays my songs 24/7, created and maintained by a loyal fan named Brian. Positioning might change in the future, but for now it should be on the right side, if your screen/window is large enough ->

I hacked together some changes so that the website also uses more space on bigger displays. Although this makes the site a little less compact and the header image cannot fully extend to this size, this gives the radio widget considerably more space to breathe. It’s not perfect and I have no idea how it looks on mobile (because I personally very rarely use that) but if it has less bugs than your typical open world Bethesda game, it’s fine by me.

You can also open the radio station in its own window – or even get an app for it (no idea how that works though, I’m just a desktop guy) – whatever is most convenient for you. Please enjoy!

I know I’ve been quiet for a few months now, but I’m still here, trying to reignite my spark to make more music. Although the pandemic would have made a convenient excuse, it actually has nothing to do with that. Just kinda lost my mojo – I feel like it might just take a little while to get back to creating stuff. At the very least I’ll be back for this year’s Halloween special. Thank you for your patience 😉

Music and suggestions page update

Some of you might have noticed it already, but I haven’t found the time/motivation to write a post about it yet. The Music page and the Suggestions page got a huge update last weekend. So let’s dive right into it:

Music page

This is something I wanted to do for a while now. Previously, it was quite a mess. A main page with links to sub-pages related to franchises. A pain to maintain. So I used up last weekend (the WHOLE WEEKEND) to make a legit Music page with ALL (!) songs made so far sorted by release year (excluding OST, which still have their own page, but including album projects). There you can listen to and download the tracks directly. Icons and short descriptions show you what franchises and themes you can expect in the song. I hope you give the page a visit and find some cool songs you didn’t know about yet.

Let me give you a little warning though: Since there is so much stuff on that page, it might take a while to load. I tried to make navigating easier by adding a table of contents at the top of the page, I hope this will help a bit. (I actually added that to other big pages like the OST page and the Album Projects page as well).

Happy browsing!

Suggestions page

Some of you posted comments on that page before, but that didn’t really help me very much, as I didn’t even get notified if someone comments. Also, I primarily wanted to see what most of you would be interested in. So now we try a different approach. By now you should already know how polls work, so the new Suggestions page basically features a never-ending poll where you can vote for other people’s suggestions or throw your own idea into the ring, which other people can then vote for.

You can suggest a single theme or a combination, but you can only vote once, so think carefully. After a suggestions reaches a significantly high amount of votes, there’s a high chance it will be turned into a song. After that happened, the suggestion will be removed from the list and all who voted for it regain their right to vote…granted I will be able to do that of course without resetting the whole thing.

Happy voting!

Video

As usual we have a video to go along with this post, because I noticed that without a video, all my efforts will remain unnoticed. Since you already know more than the video says, I suggest heading to those pages and find out for yourself now.

I started working on Ultimate Elemental Being, the final Elemental Disciple mix including all 8 elements. This will likely be the next upload, although I might throw one or two OST Focus videos in-between. I’ll try to finish the song until next Sunday, but since this is such a big mix, I’m not sure if I can make it. I’ll try my best though.

Voting winner and next song voting

Waluigi Pinball won the last voting and will be done next!

Second and third place were pretty close, so the next voting is only about which of these songs will be the next one, the loser comes after the winner basically. Not very important you might say, but it’s also a test since I upgraded the voting plug-in. It should now finally allow Google+ (and with that YouTube) users to vote! I hope it works as expected, let’s try it out!
