Got a new phone and was transfering some Zelda and Mario ones to use for text messages (1up, Shroom, Zelda Secret...etc) and was wondering what you guys use, or have used for either ringtones and text messages? Might be able to give each other some ideas here and stuff.

Ringtone: Super Smash Bros Wii U results screen, it's classy and a nice nod to the Smash 64 character select screen
Text message: Yoshi sound from Super Mario World, loud
Notification tone: Happy Mask Salesman laugh from Majora's Mask, it's creepy, but subtle enough for a notification

I used to have a ring tone that played the original SMB theme, and once it was on the last ring it would play the Mario death sound. For text messages, I don't have a special one set but would probably go with the Link getting an item sound.

I use the jingle that you get when you get a key in paper mario and the thousand year door. The only thing is I never hear it because my phone is always on silent due to the fact that I probably shouldn't have it on during classes/work. I just don't turn it back on after.

A bug in your code isn't necessarily a bug, but rather it is an unintended feature.

There's another teacher at my school who has the Navi, "Hey! Listen!" for texts.

All of the sounds my phone makes are gaming related.

My ringtone for my wife is the Sega CD start up music
My ringtone for everyone else is the Kass theme from BOTW
My notification for email is the sound from Mario hitting the checkpoint in Super Mario World
My notification for text message is the coin sound from the start up of Super Mario World
My notification for reminders is the codec sound from Metal Gear Solid

I'm sure I have others I'm forgetting.

-------------------------




Maybe, just once, someone will call me "sir" without adding, "you're making a scene."

I can both admit that's cute, but it would get so annoying so quickly.  Navi was the worst part of that game.  Well, at least that the fact is that was the only sound she'd play and she constantly said it.

I don't have it now, but I use to have the Sonic ka-ching for text messages.  I set that up right before an old flip phone of mine died that I could load custom MP3 snippets too. I think I need to do this again.

My email notification is a Kirby 1-up. Text messages are the "pokoron" sound from GameCenter CX.

For texts the sound needs to be very short or it gets annoying fast. I use Mario collecting a coin from SMB3. For the ringtone I use the main theme from SMW

Exactly.  I'm using a coin sound for text as well, but from a different Mario game.

I use the Alert! noise from Metal Gear Solid for texts, and the codec call sound for phone calls.

Whoa... crazy. I had opened this thread a while ago and was typing in it... When I hit reply I noticed there were more messages, haha. Does your Mega Man 2 music have that long note right before the actual music hits?

Noice question...

Text Message: I started with SMB3 coin like Bert, haha. Switched phones, decided to go with the 1-Up. It stuck.

Ringtone: Mega Man 2 title music (I wish it had the opening part with the long note before the music drops)

I use the OG SMB dungeon music for my ring tone and the jump sound for my text messages. Makes me smile everyday

i've thought about it, but then i realized it would be incredibly tacky, so I just use the least offensive default ringtones on my iphone

Yeah I had the sound for getting a mushroom and it got obnoxious really fast. Need to change mine, it's been the same for years. Maybe the sound of Megaman shooting

I wanted to go for an entire "Doom" theme to my rings and tones but I have an iPhone now and it is stupidly backwards to get anything custom working.

​Currently, I have my ring, voicemail and alarm tones set to music from Shovel Knight. "Strike the Earth!", "For Shovelry!" and "In the Halls of the Usurper", respectively.

That's why I go with sounds that 99% of people wouldn't recognize anyway.  For example, my wife has no idea that any of my phone sounds are video game related.

I'll check it out. I was researching several apps back when I was trying to set it up (none of which bore fruit) but that one doesn't sound familiar.

The Playstation 1 startup sound is my ringtone. The "press start" sound from Tecmo Bowl is my text tone.
