Great, I like the initiative of this site these days. I'm gonna start preparing today, and see how the lines are drawn.

I see that one might actually include chords - according to rules - this time. Good to know. I must admit I see no reasons not to include a few supporting/defining chords if you are allowed. Unless the judges reward melodies that run their own life better.

I've read, its not allowed to use appregio's... I assume you aren't allowed to use them to display chords only? And ofcource they aren't being changed over the song unless the chord changes?

Cus it seems strange :P

Ofcource its not allowed to use appregio's during the main melody. I understand that, but also not for chords?

Well, anyway; chords + single melody, that'll do it. Maybe I even drop the chords, if I feel in the mood.

You can use arpeggios to show chords. The FAQ, of course, spoke of the lead melody.
The chord picture should be static - no boom-cha-cha, no any other structure. Just static chords in key places - that is, if the chord changes, you show it.

Great! I'll make a chiptune, especially for Purple Motion. :)

I've had a little tracking break the recent days. Which might prove positive for the one voice compo; if I'm lucky and experience a flood of inspiration. I'll have a go very soon.

LPChip: Have a few days off without touching Modplug, and retry. Might work.
