Dunno. The only reason why the Nds one doesn't work for Explorers of Time cause this version of the Nds was made before Time came out. So it doesn't support it.

I can't get a program that can unpackage .rar on my computer, and I would really like to try hacking music..

well, if you have the tools, then you should make a new thread (or move this one) in the toolbox.

Anyway, if you keep this up, we may no longer need sappy (assuming you make a tool to put songs into the game...)

What are you saying xd.... may no longer need Sappy,..impossible....Sappy Assembler is the only one link between the mid format and sound ingame....what do you dislike on it?

Add to this no one have the courage todo the same tool or radicaly say unable to.

the NDS tracks do not sound like they would min the game, like thier using diferent insturments or something o that effedt

The game changes the tracks massively (on Meta Knight's Revenge from Kirby Super Star Ultra) or minimally (VS. Regirock/ice/steel from Pokemon Platinum) to make them sound different. What you are hearing is the original and if you don't like it, delete some tracks temporarily and see what you get. Use back-ups.

choatix
December 22nd, 2008, 05:32 AM
ok then... and how will that change anything???

OH WELL.

What is the stream folder for? The picture says wav files; what wav files? That folder is also empty for me from each of the games I have extracted from: Nintendogs, Pokemon Diamond and New Super Mario Bros. Is trhis my falt or someone elses?

As by wav does it mean the actual songs (as they sound in game) because this is what I eralyl want.

And another thing...
Options:
-x extract files only(no decoding)
-s show processing status
--help show this usage
How do you use these options? And what do they all do? Or, do I chanmge something or other?

I'm not sure what is the stream folder and ignore the options, they are useless. The stream folder may be for streaming files, but the Nintendo Dual System, Dual System Lite, and Dual System(i) do it by themselves.

Yeah, well, this program does rip music from mainly 75-85% out of all 3200+75(demos and G&W Collections) or over roms. I just found that out by trying it with 20 random roms.

choatix
December 25th, 2008, 08:27 AM
Well I need help from someonme. Can this program extract sound files as WAV files that are the soundtracks as the game would play them? The strean folder, After all, in the image in the first post it does mention it contains wav files.

Heart's Soul
December 28th, 2008, 09:04 AM
Yes, in the third folder it does. But those are just SFX, so I don't bother. Just change the folder with midi files to read by size and done. You will find music easier, that's my hint. Also, WINAMP is a great program for those files. Try using that for them.

If you want to extract the Nintendo DS Music without it remixed, why don't you get VGMTrans?

Some songs have an extra part to it. How do I know? There are unused songs and Eterna City/Game Corner are partially distorted compared to the games.

I can't get this right. I'm dying to put the soundtrack on my iPod, but I can't get the files right.

Does anyone have a link to download the soundtrack to PMD 1 and/or 2? If so, can you PM it to me?
I've been looking for it for a LONG time! I CAN'T FIND IT!!! ='(

Heart's Soul
January 28th, 2009, 09:23 AM
It's easy. Download the rom (do it yourself) and put it in the same folder as the program. Move the ROM over the program to extract the music and waste a lot of hours ordering it and then converting to mp3 (which is easy!)

Yes, I know how to extract the files, but the raw MIDI files are warped. It doesn't sound anything like the in-game rendering. You can sometimes tell what its SUPPOSED to be, but its severely warped.

Correct. That is the ORIGINAL *.midi* file that makes this happen. That is how it is supposed to sound, all you have to do it clean up the instruments by a remixer and then you got a good song. The game just changes the file, all right? I had this a few times, but I didn't care.

Try using Anvil Studio for such matters.

Try reading the README file as it must have one. I don't really use it, but I know it. Remixes *.mid* formats quite well. Try moving/deleting the instruments a bit. And you'll have a remix sooner or later!
