Theme Suggestion

Post by easy tank »

(All) games have Theme Song. So what about to BZFlag have such of Official Video Theme Song.
It's crazy idea, but the BZFlag can be much popular when is there official video and theme song.
What do you say about it?

Vote: - Yes.
- No.

Yeah, let's spend time writing a theme song for our tank game. Wait, no.

Wait a second; I could. I already upload videos to YouTube and I have a professional Music Studio... Honestly, it would be a piece of cake... Doesn't have to be long, I would just get like a 10-20 second clip and loop it. I'll start (with permission, of course) and send it to an admin. Thoughts, anyone?

Why would you need permission? It would be your work.

So after I make it, who should I send it to? And remember, you can't put a time limit or date on art ;)

It would be your thing, you post it wherever you want. If you give it an open source license (like Creative Commons ) then whoever wants to use it, can use it.

I don't know why you think you have to "Send" it to someone. It would be yours, do whatever you want with it.

If for some strange reason the song moves us in our soul and brings happiness and rainbows to all it touches, and we decided we wanted to use it in the project, and we somehow added musical support to the game, and magically got a release out with it, then we'd just use it under the CC license you provided.

I make the song. I post it. Nothing else; I don't have time for anything else.

Well, you're talking about all the open license crap. I ain't doing any of that; that's what I was trying to say in my last post.

Then you "ain't" posting it here if it doesn't have an "open" license and we can't use it so just keep it for yourself!

"Well" then he could have "just" said that I could "post" it here; he "started" confusing me with all this stuff about "licenses".

If you intend to post a song (or other creative work) on the forums, it has to be released under an OSI approved license, and ideally one that allows commercial reuse. One of the more permissive Creative Commons licenses like CC-BY or CC-BY-SA is an example of ones we would be okay with.

Okay, thanks for giving it to me straightforward like a sir :). I will now start creating the song; when it's done, I'll post it on this thread.

Cobra Fast: it sounds cool, but a theme song (in my opinion) shouldn't have lyrics. I don't know; I might be getting the wrong idea when you all say "theme song". When I think of it, I think of music playing at the menu screen and/or during gameplay.... If this isn't what was envisioned, please tell me.

wow, how very civil of you.

When you "asked if you could do it" we said that it wasn't up to us, that it was your work. I SPECIFICALLY said that we did not have musical support before you even started.
and we somehow added musical support to the game, and magically got a release out with it....
also I have NEVER said I was an admin of these forums.

It just seems like you only read the words you want to hear and then become a jerk when they don't match the fantasy you have constructed in your mind.

Unlike JeffM, I am a forum admin, and you're close to being removed (both of your accounts) if you keep this up.

If anything, close his... He hardly helps anyone that asks him a serious question; he just picks and chooses who he wants to respect and who he wants to rail on! It's funny: I saw my brothers posts from like 2008, and even then, he didn't take him seriously. He's hurting this forum, and the game.

Then why did you let me keep talking? You should have said it again right after I kept talking.

Another example of your excellent and well-thought decisions.

Dude, it's not my job to make sure you READ all the posts in a thread. I am not your mom.
Your last post was when I noticed that you had not read things and mentioned it to you.

You want to be an immature jerk about that, fine that's your deal. Good luck getting people to help you with anything else.

This thread had a topic?

Yeah he's special all right. Try to tell him the game doesn't support what he wants to do, get a screen-full of hate... how do parents raise them these days?

But I guess I'm the bad guy in all this of course.....
