My Anthem to be featured.
« on: October 06, 2008, 07:21:39 pm »
I'm hardly musically inclined but I fiddled around with the anthem generator a while back from my Jorbin species. And this evening I got an email from Maxis Cactus!

"Hi leanbarton,

 

We thought the JorbinNation anthem you posted really stood out!   We’re going to post a few imaginative song PNGs to accompany an upcoming anthem tutorial movie on our site, and we’ve chosen yours for the spotlight. 

 

Here’s a link to the page where your anthem will soon appear: http://www.spore.com/comm#tutorials 

 

Sincerely,

Whuh? I thought you couldn't share anthems (like cells)?
Are Maxis secretly tapping into our computers to listen to our anthems? Do I have to start wearing a tinfoil hat to repel Maxis psychic investigators again? Is it possible to get one that matches my straightjacket?

Importing music (dragging and dropping into Spore) stopped working for me, and someone I know has never been able to import other peoples music. I wonder how they're going to go about this...

My thoughts exactly, every line.  How do we share?!?

Congrats!

I was also not aware anthems could be shared.  And, this is the first time I've heard that music could be drag-and-dropped into Spore.

Looking forward to the tutorial.  Everything I make sounds horrible.  I don't even mess with it anymore.

Congrats! 

And I have a Anthem related question/suggestion.  There should be a way to scan the anthem from other species' cities. 

I came across a few that I liked a lot, but there's no way to get them.

Well I first posted it in the Sporepedia Exchange here on GamingSteve. So I assume that's where they got it from.

Could be, they do read these forums quite a bit.

For those who said they can't drag and drop, I'm pretty sure it'd work if you put the song file in:
C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\My Documents\My Spore Creations\CityMusic
(or the appropriate folder on your computer if it is different)

And then on the music creation screen you click load song.

Oh, okay.  I thought you meant you were dragging and dropping it into the application while it was running.

Good job man.

Does anyone know if there's a way to create music outside the game? I can't find a way to. I'd love to just play around with the music editor.

Shouldn't -state:MusicEditor or -state:AnthemEditor work?
