I don't know what it's supposed to mean, but if being anti-woke  means going on Twitter and complaining about an extremely talented young black woman playing The Little Mermaid or complaining about a gay couple in The Last of Us or complaining about a beautiful plus sized model on the cover of sports illustrated, then I think those people who identify as anti-woke need therapy.

If this was just a matter of complaining about bad writing in media I don't think anyone would disagree. No one likes bad writing. But apparently some feel the need to assign a special term for bad writing when it involves minorities. Interesting how that works.

It's a shiny object designed to distract people from actual issues that matter imo.

The craziest thing I saw said about Wallachia was that it's Muslim propaganda... This person also needed a therapist.

That's all I'm going to say about "woke". I didn't want to engage any further but I felt a piece of my soul start to die as I stayed silent.

Describes inherent issues with ‘Wokeism’

I interpret ‘woke’ as confusion culture to the point where different people speaking the same universal language are not inherently understanding one another.. It almost sounds like the Tower of Babel story..

Tbh, the dungeon used to be a good place to ‘Ave-a-rant-mate, but in certain instances according to my experience, it’s no better than the ‘wokeists’ now.

This term woke means nothing to me I think it's been mostly made up to make people needlessly angry.

If only it were the case. IF ONLY. Unfortunately it isn't. Not only does it make me angry as well but it is also a very real problem. Europe apparently has the worst of it from what I hear. Australia is also a bit of a mess due to it as well. What started out as a simple movement has since been purposely hijacked by neo-feminists (we all know by now that they are feminazis) and blown way out of proportion. They've also hijacked the homosexual pride movement as well so now that's also under the woke umbrella. Though they are a minority they used the internet (surprise!) to make themselves seem much larger then they actually are. It has become the bane of society.

I've seen comments around the internet of people claiming Wallachia is woke because it has a female protagonist.

There are some people out there that cannot tell what is woke and what isn't. This was also intentional if I'm not mistaken as we are currently going through what I've been calling 'the age of confusion'. I personally never saw Wallachia as a woke game. At all. I also have a great interest in female protagonists and almost all the time when I roleplay table-top RPGs and the like, I'm usually making a female character. Heck, my multiple playthroughs of the Elderscrolls games are me making female characters to use. However, that all being said, a woke female protagonist differs greatly then a well-written female protagonist. The key to recognizing the difference is in the writing. Woke writers do NOT know how to write stories or characters properly. And this is completely evident in both TV and in movies as they've infiltrated Hollywood and other forms of media. Disney studios, Marvel, DC, etc. have woke writers printing out their personal propaganda to push their agenda. And even more saddening is that it has also infiltrated the videogame market as well. Borderlands 3 is just one example of a woke game. All we can do (besides protest against it) is not buy their products which, in turn, will make them lose money and force them to take a good look at what is going wrong. I do believe DC Warner Bros is going through a restructuring right now because they've been cranking out garbage for the last few years, and thus are taking notice that something within their own studio is not working. I just wish that it happened much sooner or, better yet!, not at all. If you don't believe me that fine. I don't expect anyone to (free Will and all that). But I won't lie to anyone about something that's been going on for almost a decade now...or perhaps even longer.

Are these done by grabbing the chip data and converting it to MIDI?
I know that for the ones I used to do, I did it by hand by hearing each channel and notating it accordingly.
Yes, they start with the chip data (spc files).

I begin with spc2midi, which was never finished, and is in Japanese (v0.023, if that tells you anything about completeness).  But it attempts to convert the spc data to corresponding midi data.  It works fairly well, but they never finished the percussion conversion, so all percussion is a mess. Pitch values are often incorrect for an entire instrument (SNES does not store the set pitch value, only pitch relative to the sample used, so it runs I believe an FFT on the audio to try to guess the pitch), plus each game/audio engine seems to provide some unique quirks that need to be worked around with the generated files.  Yet I find in general it still provides a more "true" rendition than the only other utility I have found that does this, there's just a LOT of work that goes in both before and after the conversion.

If you are curious about the whole process, a I have a step-by-step breakdown located at
under the file SNES MIDI Remaster Project xxxx-xx-xx.docx

Richter has been confirmed as a playable character.  Also saw encounters with Maria and Shanoa in the new trailer.
I hold no hope towards all these announcements until there's anything truly good which hits me so hard. My heart really dies after all these years.
Farts and calls it Castlevania
