"Wrong" sound — sound effect or music clip? — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 20:49, 14 December 2005 (UTC)

Music?

  • The music played for Games is part of the original Match Game theme.
  • The music played for Downloads and Store is part of the original Family Feud theme.

I don't hear that. There's a similarity in rhythm and feel, but the notes are all wrong. FF's theme was in a minor key, for one. Can we find audio files of these themes to compare? Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 03:28, 4 April 2006 (UTC)

Amazon has brief clips, but there's no way they are these themes. I'm going to remove them. If anyone objects, STUFF. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 03:33, 4 April 2006 (UTC)

Store and Downloads: The Exact Same?

It sounds like the music from Store and Downloads are the exact same tune played at different pitches. 98.159.29.164 15:29, 17 October 2015 (UTC)

Yes, they've clearly transposed the music. It's obvious and not very noteworthy. — Defender1031*Talk 17:03, 17 October 2015 (UTC)

Organizing Button Effects

This page's "Button Effects" section is naturally a little messier because there's dialogue. I find how it's currently written a little confusing to the eye; to have a character's quote (without a specified speaker and occasionally with stage directions) placed in the middle of a bullet point. I suggest something like this:

  • Toons
    • The Ab-Abber 2000 from the Strong Bad Email suntan appears behind Homestar.
    • HOMESTAR RUNNER: Contestant number 1, your name again is— {he looks at the cue card and squints oddly} "Toons"?
  • Games
    • A poster saying "A Trip to Hawaii!" appears.
    • HOMESTAR RUNNER: Now, time for our lightning round. We call it... "Games".
    • A sign composed of flashing lights reading "GAMES" appears in the background and music is heard.
  • Characters
    • A chair with a sign that says "$??" appears.
    • HOMESTAR RUNNER: So, Characters, you were in a movie recently. {leans toward the "camera"} Tell us about that.
  • Downloads
    • A golden statue of The Cheat appears.
    • HOMESTAR RUNNER: My next guest is an extremely talented webpage. Please welcome... "Downloads"!
    • Pom Pom bounces past wearing a name tag that says "downloads" while music plays.
  • Store
    • HOMESTAR RUNNER: But if you guess correctly, you'll win... a new store!
    • The background lifts, revealing the Gremlin while music plays.
  • E-mail
    • The Blender appears, and a buzzer is heard.
    • HOMESTAR RUNNER: No, I'm sorry. The correct answer... was "E-mail".
    • A "wrong" sound effect is heard in the background and "E-mail" is displayed in a white font.

More lines, but I think formatting it a bit more like a transcript is quicker and easier to follow. Objections? Alternate suggestions? Should I go 'head? SRMX12 (talk) 00:26, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

I'd suggest indenting rather than sub-bullets, and formatting the stage directions as such, but otherwise seems good. Something like:
  • Toons
    {The Ab-Abber 2000 from the Strong Bad Email suntan appears behind Homestar.}
    HOMESTAR RUNNER: Contestant number 1, your name again is— {he looks at the cue card and squints oddly} "Toons"?
  • Games
    {A poster saying "A Trip to Hawaii!" appears.}
    HOMESTAR RUNNER: Now, time for our lightning round. We call it... "Games".
    {A sign composed of flashing lights reading "GAMES" appears in the background and music is heard.}
  • Characters
    {A chair with a sign that says "$??" appears.}
    HOMESTAR RUNNER: So, Characters, you were in a movie recently. {leans toward the "camera"} Tell us about that.
  • Downloads
    {A golden statue of The Cheat appears.}
    HOMESTAR RUNNER: My next guest is an extremely talented webpage. Please welcome... "Downloads"!
    {Pom Pom bounces past wearing a name tag that says "downloads" while music plays.}
  • Store
    HOMESTAR RUNNER: But if you guess correctly, you'll win... a new store!
    {The background lifts, revealing the Gremlin while music plays.}
  • E-mail
    {The Blender appears, and a buzzer is heard.}
    HOMESTAR RUNNER: No, I'm sorry. The correct answer... was "E-mail".
    {A "wrong" sound effect is heard in the background and "E-mail" is displayed in a white font.}
