    Quote from Xaphiosis

    Hi. I'm trying to get Minecraft involved in my musical education, so your mod is fun (I'm using it in FTBs latest Monster pack (1.0.3)). Some feedback:

    - the 1.6.4 version link in your main post points to 1.6.2
    - placing netherrack next to a note block that's on grass/dirt (piano) prevents the note block from making a sound (visual feedback correctly indicates lowered octave, but no sound is emitted; adding a soundfont does not help)
    - I like the note block editing feature; consider adding a key combo to edit existing signs without having to destroy them first, otherwise it's a bit awkward. In FTB, there's a sponge eraser item that allows you to edit signs, and that's pretty convenient.
    - the menus are rather cluttered, e.g. it took me a long(ish) while to figure out that something I was looking for was on the current screen but invisible until I clicked the green recycle/reload button
    - I can't figure out how the jukebox/noteblock playing areas work, but this could be my failing.

    Since I don't see a link to source code for me to play around, consider this crazy idea: what I'm looking for is a note block for which I can pick any MIDI instrument and tune it to any note. When redstone signal is applied, send noteOn; when removed, send noteOff. Combined with something (item? key combo?) that allows copying the exact setup of such a note block and batch-applying it to a bunch of others would make a fun environment to make interactive musical games (identify interval, pitch training in minecraft!)


    Thanks for the feedback! Immediately after you posted, I corrected the download link, and I am considering each of your suggestions.

    - The "no noteblock sound" bug is a result of the new Resource Packs in Minecraft 1.6. I will update MineTunes to _really_ use Forge in Minecraft 1.7, and register sounds properly. This should also clear up any bugs with SFX Instruments.

    - Sign editing would only work in single player. Nevertheless, I will consider it for the next update.

    - The next update will feature clearer menus.

    - The next update will also come with a fresh example world, with all the new voice synthesis and BlockTune features in pride of place.

    - BlockTunes are your MIDI noteblocks, and they are a blast in multiplayer.

    MineTunes is open source. Feel free to ping me with any questions, and thanks for playing MineTunes!

    MineTunes has been updated to Minecraft 1.6.4! Enjoy, everybody, and a 1.7.2 version will follow hard on its heels.

    EDIT: Once MCP and Forge update...

    This is a very cool mod, I added it to my pack.

    My only issue I have is that the config files aren't located in the config directory. Would be nice if this were to use the resourcepacks and config integration in forge so I could just push different midi resource packs to the clients and let them choose.

    For now I'll just overwrite mineTunes/MCDittySettings.xml every update.

    -edit-

    This entry is causing me grief, it keeps being overwritten on world load, I've set it to false and it keeps being rewriten as true.
    <entry key="welcomeMessageShown">true</entry>



    I will consider moving the config files in the future (it is on my little list), but with limited time around college it may or may not happen.

    Do you have a 1.6.4 version?


    Yes, later today or tomorrow I will try to put it up here.

    MineTunes (and JFugue) support dotted notes with aplomb! It works like this:



    You simply add a period after the duration letters.

    Your other solution is correct as well: you can always just write something like "Ais" or "C6qi" to achieve the same end as well.

    Multiple dots do not work, but unless you're planning to go all Wagnerian on us, it won't be a problem.

    Have fun!

    so here's an idea, could you try to somehow make noteblock studio be able to implant crap directly into mc using your mod. though i know that IS a bit redundant. but i think it's still a good idea.


    Unfortunately, I cannot alter Noteblock Studio to do this. It's a great program though, isn't it? The closest I could come is to read Noteblock Studio save files and put them into books. Which would be pretty cool.

    I cannot do more than base minimum upkeep on this mod for the next few months, however, due to work.

    Looks epic! :D


    Darn tootin' it is!

    An update to 1.6.4 will come within the next couple of weeks, or maybe more, depending upon the whims of my classes.

    It uses "FreeTTS": a java library that sounds consistent across all OS's. It can produce a bassy, monotonous voice terrific for letting Testificates speak their minds, opera charcacters sing recitatives, and (if abused by raising the pitch via ~E4, ~Bb5, ect. markup in your lyrics) imitating Eric Idle's falsetto.

    If you aren't floored, you can even switch it off in SignTune Settings.

    With just 30 signs and a bit of Gilbert and Sullivan, you can now produce this star recording!

    Minetunes 3.6.01 features not only multi-book midis for the first time, but also:
    • Voice Synthesis (Sing/SingOff keywords)
    • Easier lyrics with the "Say" keyword
    • Restored high/low noteblock sounds via netherrack and endstone around the base of the noteblock

    There currently is not. Since I have time for one last big update before university, I'll try to get that in for you sometime in the next few weeks. ^_^

    MineTunes for 1.6.2 has been released at last! The only missing feature is netherrack/endstone noteblock pitches, due to lack of easy custom sounds. This should be fixed soon in an update.

    Quote from Country_Gamer

    But then I would have to get it to switch out models. I know that I can display text because both the server and other mods have done it.


    The code to display a nametag above a mob or player is "RendererLivingEntity.renderLivingLabel(entity, text, x, y, z, color)" as of 1.6.1. In your "RenderDiscoZombie"-like class, simply call renderLivingLabel at some point in doRender().

    If you want to get fancy, you can even display multiple labels, on top of one another, in different colors.

    I'll look into this in a few days. Those books probably don't contain any readable text, so my mod turns blue and keels over in response when you try to put a MIDI into them. Thanks for finding that!

    I don't want to sound like I am Demanding anything, But do you have an ETA on the update for the noteblock [Signtunes] Fix?


    It's fine to ask: I'm afraid I won't be able to release an update for at least a week, but with luck it'll also contain a "pause" key command as well.
