Hi everyone,

I've got a site up with over 1500 tracks of free music and sound effects that you are welcome to freely use in commercial projects, non-commercial, personal, whatever you like. It's all original...all my own work. All I ask is to be attributed as indicated on my homepage:

http://soundimage.org/

If anyone needs some custom tracks created, I do those as well at very low cost. Most people are pleasantly surprised at how affordable it is. Just let me know!   🙂

I sincerely hope my tracks are helpful. Any and all feedback is welcome and always appreciated.

All the best,

Eric

Eric makes amazing music tracks. We've already met with him in past on gamedev.net website. Eric is a big friend of indie teams. He shared his music with us by free and allowed us to use a few tracks in the video of our early build. Now we have our own composer in the team, but he gets his inspiration from different references including Eric's music.  
 
Eric, great thanks for your music. /Sol-Ark's team.

Eric Matyas, I've seen you on a bunch of different forums and I had a few questions about your business. As a fellow composer, I'm super impressed by the the quantity and quality of your work. I'm just wondering how you make income if you sell them for free? Do people donate enough to sustain your composing job? I would assume it takes a while to make so many pieces.

Merged the thread in the 'Portfolios' sub-forum with this one as it wasn't suitable for that forum, and also was more or less a duplicate.

Thanks for checking out my work...I appreciate it! And yes, people do donate...they are also starting to hire me to create custom tracks. I'm very new at this...(have been doing it just over a year compared to, say, to Kevin M. who's been at it for nearly 20)...so I'm just learning as I go. I'm not a full-time composer...it's just one (of many) creative endeavours.   :)

      Alright, I did some testing with the new detail sprites and found out how more specifically how they work. @Mamorex was on the right track but there's a few key things you left out. 

      Removing $alphatest from the material or adding $translucent

      First, the detail sprites material - it's 2 detail sprite sheets side by side, so version A and version B. The different versions have to have same sprite positions and sizes. You only specify version A coordinates in the .vbsp.


      Next up, the detail sprites masks. Red and blue are for wind offset -- so you can have different parts of the sprites sway in the wind differently, you can see Valve isolated some blades of grass for this effect. The green channel is a tint mask and controls how much the sprites are affected by the $worldspacetint. 

      That brings us to the world space textures. They seem to automatically get resized to fit the whole map area, so it you resize the map you'd have to resize the textures too.

      The world space tint texture is pretty self explanatory, controls what color to tint the grass, 127 grey means no tint. 

      The world space masks texture uses the red channel to select which version of the sprites to use -- 0 is version A and anything more is version B. 

      The green channel of the texture controls the sprite size -- 127 is default, with darker making the sprites smaller and brighter making the sprites larger. The vmt command $minimumspritesize controls the cutoff point for the sprites, so the sprites smaller than the specified value don't get rendered which can act as a placement mask. 

      I don't know what the blue channel of this texture does, changing it had no effect on the sprites for me. 

       

      All this means sprites still get placed by vbsp on map compile, so they still use displacement alpha for the placement, but the new masks can manipulate sprites size and color after map compile.
