Unused Music

On the official Monster World fan page on Facebook, a link to some unused music planned for tropical levels was posted. Should this go in the article here or no? http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=488236051191465&set=a.482498248431912.129764.465366220145115&type=1 --NamoDyn 02:07, 3 October 2012 (EDT)

  • If it's in the game and not used by it, then yes. (Also, if three-quarters of the title screen theme is unused, it should be on the page as an OGG file.) -WarioBarker 00:23, 4 October 2012 (EDT)
  • Unfortunately, It isn't under the sound test menu, but hopefully it is hidden inside the ROM. And I think the very existence of the "Overture" title screen music in the sound test makes it used, just not outside sound test.. Montas1992 06:42, 4 October 2012 (EDT)
  • The Hidden Palace theme in Sonic 2 is unused outside the Sound Test unless you use a code to access its level slot, but it's listed on the page. If the track isn't used outside the Sound Test in standard gameplay, it's considered unused. -WarioBarker 20:25, 7 October 2012 (EDT)
  • The wording on the pages suggests that it was never put into the ROM itself, though I don't know how to check to see if is in the ROM or not. I guess this would fall under cut content rather than hidden or unused content. Either way, anyone interested in this game or game series would likely find the fan-page or the TCRF article, so I think leaving the link on this talk-page would be okay, at least for now.--NamoDyn 01:35, 10 October 2012 (EDT)
There's precedent for adding outside content such as music or graphics directly related to a game (See Wario Land: Shake It!). As long as you're absolutely positive it was to be included in the game and can source it, then feel free. Tanks 02:35, 10 October 2012 (EDT)
Welp. I guess that means it's time to start adding "prerelease materials" sections, because I still don't want this stuff mixed in with the main pages. There needs to be a clear separation between stuff that can still be found in the ROM, and stuff that was removed before release. --BMF54123 15:08, 10 October 2012 (EDT)
Ah sorry. I remember there being an issue with the inclusion of the plumber's cave song in WLSI because of it not being "in the game" and I thought it was run by the admins about its inclusion. I had nothing to do with it, but I assumed it was reviewed by the higher ups. Personally i 'm all for a prerelease materials section only because I'm starting to find certain things of interest being released by developers, but I do understand the issues with the mixing of the two.

I think the best/easiest way to do it for now is to make it a separate category, like Notes: or Proto:, that can be linked in the Bob. I'd still like to make something a little fancier in the near future, though. --BMF54123 16:01, 10 October 2012 (EDT)
