Publishing Songs for Manual Play Only?

Postby Nakkt » Sun Jan 15, 2017 9:33 pm

I know this might come off as a weird question, but I've got a ton of songs I've put together on GW2MB. Problem is, I don't have the focus or patience to actually sit and make the notes match the actual rhythm/tempo of the songs, nor do I feel like fixing the 'broken' automatically exported AHK scripts.

In other words, I have all the correct notes down, and the numerical (manual) script works perfectly, provided one knows how the song goes, but the AutoHotKey scripts are basically useless the way I do things.

My question is – are we allowed to post songs like that, with some way to indicate that only the manual script works (via comment or something), or is posting said songs a no-go?

For example, I recently put together the song Holy Mountains by System of a Down for the flute, and I'm hella proud of it. I've made the manual script (modified slightly from the exported GW2MB script) available to download from my Google Drive, but if I publish the song to the archive, the AHK script will not work as intended.

I know I could probably post to the Song Requests subforum and maybe ask people to help put in the tempo and proper note lengths for all the songs I have on hand, but it's a lot of work.

Or perhaps could we make an individual thread [per user] somewhere on the forum here to showcase manual scripts or WiPs for songs? I don't know, just tossing the idea out.

If I were you, I'd upload them as per usual and just tag it with [Manual Play] in the title to let people know. There's lots of songs in the database that aren't playable in game, so this is really no different as far as that's concerned with AHK. Then people can easily have access to the notes and if they want to take the time to sit down in musicbox and arrange it so it can be used with AHK that's on them.
