Well, not really and I apologize if I've offended anyone and didn't mean to make light of the disorder but, here's the deal.
TLDR version is at the bottom.
Some of you may be wondering why the updates to Projekt Xero have been slow and for those of you who HAVE been wondering, this is why.
Dispite work going smoothly, Kamila feels that this wad file might be too "advanced" for our first outing. She feels like the story restricts her design ideas (example would be Elizavetta's version of MAP01, as opposed to Kamila's).
She's been sketching around in vanilla DOOM II compatibility while Elizavetta works out kinks in Projekt Xero's MAP03 and I have to say, some of the designs are neat but, they are quite... un-real worldly, for lack of a better (or actual) word.
It got me thinking, is this normal for groups of people (mainly new mappers to do this?).
We haven't contacted Abiageal O'meara yet (our music composer) but, assuming we went through with this thing, and keeping it in vanilla would mean MIDI music over Abiageal's current soundtrack in progress for Projekt Xero.
I know next to nothing of music and Abiageal knows very little of DOOM.
Firstly, she uses an Apple Macintosh with Logic Pro 9. I recently got my hands on the soundtracks for DOOM and DOOM II and I really do like the midi sequences used. We'd like to include Abiageal in the project. Trouble is, we would like the music to sound as vanilla as possible.
Logic I don't know much of, but, it does some pretty neat stuff as I do love the Projekt Xero soundtrack, mainly MAP01, 02, intermission, MAP03, 04, 06, 09 but, in midi form, its well... an ear buster. It just doesn't work. Abiageal spent A LOT of time on the arrangements and when we requested midi for alternate downloads, she complied but said it was so bad, she didn't even want to send it (though, she did) and well, we can see why.
Is this silly? Should we keep working projekt xero instead of putting it on hold? is kamila crazy?
are there any (namely Macintosh) midi software composers that might give more of a vanilla doom sound?
Thanks in advance!
