I'm not even sure why I decided to go for such a wild time signature, to be honest. :p

Thanks for the kind words~

These are all really great man, I also liked that slow boss battle you posted a while back on the old forums. Time Ticking Backwards and Show me a Moose are seriously sick.

Pretty much exactly what it sounds like. You get a theme and/or restriction(s), and 60 minutes to write an original piece of music. Usually, all entries must be of a certain format (NES, Genesis, XM, and so on), although there are wildchip (any chiptune format) and allgear (any music format) battles as well. The entries I posted here are all from battles that took place over at Battle of the Bits, but other websites or communities host them as well (there are also people who organize private OHBs between friends).

I don't remember the one. Was it actually an OHC entry?

No, it wasn't. You held a competition to see who could write a song with Famitracker on the slowest speed possible, or close to it. I think you wrote it just to demonstrate what you meant, I just thought it was so cool because I'm still pretty new to Famitracker. Also, I liked the progression.

Ah. Thanks for the kind words but that's not really relevant here since that wasn't an OHB..!

Sometimes, I wonder how I pull it off myself...
