Keltron, you're basically right. The remaining 18 songs (not 19 because one of them is your own) that you did not vote on can still receive 1 bonus point, and there's no limit to how many songs you can give the bonus point to. And don't worry, it wasn't all that clean XD

The round will last for one week, and will officially end on Friday, March 22 at 12:00 AM RA website server time, which does not take DST into account. Voting will close a few hours before that; how caught up I am on the results prior to that will determine how late I accept votes before the closing time.

Here are the results of round 2.



* extra01 is ChameleonJune. I had mentioned allowing non-participants to vote in the Discord channel, and ChameleonJune has previously attempted to join but couldn't make the submission phase in time, so I allowed the votes.

** For some songs, a tiebreak was used. This tiebreaker rules in favor of the song with more high-tier votes. So, a song with two 1st-place votes would beat a song with only one 1st-place vote, for example.


And with that, round 3 has officially started! Here is the playlist.

The RetroAchievements Video Game Music Contest has come to an end and it's time to crown the winner.



Congratulations to for winning with his submission of the Title music from the Commodore 64 version of Golden Axe, arranged by Jeroen Tel!

In 2nd place was BenGhazi's submission Aria Di Mezzo Carattere from Final Fantasy VI, composed by Nobuo Uematsu, while Shmelyoff's submission of Dr. Fetus' Castle from Super Meat Boy composed by Danny Baranowsky takes 3rd.

Ready for some extended stats? Here's how everyone did during the main rounds of the competition. I didn't include the final because it was essentially a repeat of past winners to determine the champion and would have skewed some of the stats since not everyone had a song in the round.

Rimsala, what a great job with this. You put in a lot of effort and it shows. You've set the bar high so anyone who wants to run the next one has to bring their A game. :)

Thanks

It's worth noting that Yuzo Koshiro definitely composed Feena's Theme. Yukihiro Jindo likely did the arrangement for Ys Origin.
