  1. 1) First, you need a strong wish to compose music and to keep making it always. Literally saying. 2) It is highly recommended to graduate music school, it makes your music a bit more interesting and smooth. However, it is not necessary to be a professional musician, there are such intuitive programs as FL Studio or Cubase (if you already know how to play music by musical notation, the second one includes notes editor). In case, if you don't know a musical notation, then at least you need to get singing lessons, there you can learn about notes, octaves and chords, about specific things, rules and directions in music, how to listen to song, how to sing it, and how to break songs into notes. 3) Start with something simple. Piano, guitar, drums. Or just with program that may undestand and edit MIDI-format. "Mid Layer" was one of the best MIDI-editors for its time, it does work with 3D sound simulation, also has an advanced music notes editor, so you can learn notes just by placing them on a patterns line! In addition, I have almost no experience in making of chiptune melodies, I did only few tracks, and this is a separate direction in music, but you can try 8-bit editors too. 4) Listen to your favourite music or just to radio station, does not matter which one, try to catch that style of playing, that approach, analyze and fantasize in that direction. That's how I started to make music in 2006. I don't know the most of musical rules, only basic and few advanced rules, so I cannot be considered as a professional musician, but at least I have a simple style inspired by Frank Klepacki, Alexander Brandon and by few other foreign and russian composers and performers. The unbelievable fact is I had to listen closely to Red Alert OST in the late 2000s for few days, few hours per each day before I got what I needed while wearing DJ-headphones. 5) Try to make something new, experiment with different genres and instruments (personal advice of Frank Klepacki, by the way), as well as try to do remakes and don't be scary of. If your music has a success, it will improve your style of playing and music in world-wide. But there is one important thing to remember: if you and/or others don't like your music, it may possibly become a trash, so liking (thumbs up like on Facebook is unacceptable, only real sympathy) and publishing of your own creations in the Internet or showing them to your friends and other people is very important. People then will just come to you and ask for songs for their projects some day. 7) If there are only 2-3 minutes of playing, this is not always a drawback. It's just your good feeling from what did you hear and wish to continue. It really depends on melody, to be honest. But it also points at that I am not a professional musician, and I am recording melodies depending on mood and wish, that's why there are melodies which are short. Anyway, thanks for commentary and criticism, will try to remember that. Often even experienced musicians can't tell, from which part to continue and how to continue, it is up to author.
  2. Maybe it does not work as supposed by default. But sure, if those features in modified CLE will be ported to basic C&C Renegade, it will be much easier, so I don't need to port resources from one to another game for experimental needs. I do. I am still working on C&C Renegade scripts. I made and I am still making good insertions into Westwood 3D engine, was very inspired by Bluehand Studios source codes of scripts. Recently I froze Commando Assault project and made the second, singleplayer/multiplayer mod with smart AI (at the moment, appears as "C&C Renegade AI" in CnCNet and RenList).
  3. If you wish some new music for Tiberian Sun Reborn 2.0, I can help =) By the way... keep working also on W3D-import and WWSkin, that would be incredibly cool! Nice updates for CLE too, I am always waiting for some new tools for C&C Renegade in general after I joined modding community in 2006.
  4. After winter holidays, I was trying to make something new. As a result, I composed this simple melody and published in VKontakte as usual, but only today decided to publish it in YouTube. Inspired by one of my favourite universes which is Command & Conquer Red Alert.
  5. This is how I draw Pokemons today: 

    Gardevoir's Attack (coloured)


  6. At the moment, it is Winter Assault TT 4.6. Running it at winter holidays instead of my previous work, Commando Assault TT 4.3 (p.s.: which also will be ported to TT 4.6 soon, because I love that update).
  7. SANDWICH and I posted translated news about Expansive Civilian Warfare in a large russian C&C-community, including a list of what does it change in original C&C Renegade gameplay. Unfortunately, I have own server, different jobs, and cannot play other games, but still I appreciate what are you doing for a whole community. Nice work on this! By the way, if you need some rap-ish background music, or music in another genres, maybe I can do that too, who knows =)
  8. Still working on some C++ code! -> Commando Assault

  9. And oh yes, it is! Roland JV-2080 included as well as a vibe from Red Alert.
  10. Thanks! I already accepted one request to put new menu music into TSR, so yeah... if people need, I can make few more melodies like that, including rhytmic ones. Time will tell, however =)
  11. As long as you give a credit and post a link to used track - sure, I have nothing against, súdruh!
  12. Thanks for the commentaries, comrades. Also, That is a bit darkier, try to listen to and, if you want to, share your thoughts there. Thanks for an exhaustive commentary, anyway, will remember that =)
  13. Available for free download. Inspired by, but not too close to TIberian Sun. Did a different melody this time, a little bit emotional, soft, and bright. It has a short length, but anyway, I decided to publish it
  14. Commando Assault is up and running at weekends, Moscow time zone. Come in and join! =)
