Several songs I've assembled have had a strange effect on the roms they were assembled to... or more, a strange effect on Sappy while reading them... you see... when I press play on these specific songs (and it's very consistant, meaning it is something in the song) Sappy insta-shuts down without warning or error. I may as well have pressed X. How can I manipulate the midi files so they dont' have whatever attribute causes this?

Okay, I solved my earlier problem, but now have a new question: How do you know what size space to reserve for your song if it happens to be longer than the original?

And also, how do I tell a song to repeat?

I set the song Phendrana Drifts From metroid prime in the game, but it only plays once before the game goes silent. How do I fix that?

Okay... I got this "vbalCbEx.ocx" and my previous error requesting that file is now gone. However, there are two new errors, one indicating that the "ActiveX component can't create object", and another that says:

Failed to load control 'vbalCboEx' from vbalCbEx6.ocx. Your version of
vbalCbEx6.ocx may be outdated. Make sure you are using the version
of the control that was provided with your application.

This doesn't make sense, given that Sappy didn't come with the
2006 version of vbalCbEx6.ocx when I downloaded it. I looked all over
the internet for this file, and didn't find anything. The first message...
I just don't get at all. All I want to do is import a custom song into my
FR hack... why do I need all these extra components?!?! FYI: I am
temporarily using a Vista computer. My home computer's OS is
XP. Would this have anything to do with my problem? Any advice would be
appreciated.

(SWEET! MY FIRST QUOTE!!!!)

First of all, what are you trying to ask?
If you don't know how to get that file to work with Sappy, then I may be able to help.
When you downloaded "vbalCbEx6.ocx", I'm assuming it was a in a zipped folder. If so,
move the folder to your Sappy folder. Right-click on the folder, and click "extract here".
Hopefully you won't have the same problem that I do (See my last post). If that is the
case, then I can no longer help you.
If the error message keeps popping up, then check and see if the file you extracted
actually is named "vbalCbEx6.ocx". If it isn't, then go back to the site and make sure you are downloading the right one. If the file's name is "vbalCbEx6.ocx", then make sure
that the file is in the same folder as the Sappy program and all of the rest of its components. That is all I can do. Sorry:(.

You need to loop it. Find the thread for GBA Music Looping by Clonex25.

Okay this is for both of you. Go to the Elitemap homepage and download the Sappy from there since the one included in this tutorial doesn't include the runtime files and it seems Sappy will only work with the runtime files from the folder it was extracted from.

Well, I had that problem as well... and I went to the so called elitemap homepage (I really don't understand why do you call that site elitemap's homepage, cause the site link is : http://helmetedrodent.kickassgamers....dule=listfiles ). After I downloaded and installed Sappy the program opened without any error!!
I was like OMG! OMG! I DID IT!!!
But when I was opening my FR rom the program crashed... And keeps on crashing when I try to open the rom... Can anyone help??? :x

P.S. I'm using VISTA

That my friend is your fault. If you put the time and effort into making the particular song sound good on the GBA it will not sound like "****t". Most of the time if you straight take a midi and insert it, without any modification, it won't sound good. But if you take the time to learn what instruments sound good on the GBA, learn the GBA's limits and learn voicegroups and stuff, it can sound excellent. But yes, don't blame Sappy on your lack of knowledge.

My question is, what exactly is the former format, and how does one convert between them?
Simple just change "0x" to "&H".

After you press "Assemble that ugly thing!" Sappy says, "Done. Do you want to set the proper entry in the song table?"
When I hit yes, it stays there for a very long time. The longest I've waited was probably 2 hours.
Is something wrong with my Sappy?
I'm running the latest and greatest version if that helps.

Uhhh... This is so annoying. I worked on a song for hours and sappy won't let me export the tracks even if I assemble one track from the song it won't let me export. Can I send the .s files to someone so I can the insert tracks into my fire red?

I have Windows XP. Whenever I try to assemble a song, it crashes. I heard someone say it has something to do with the "kernel32.dll". How do I fix this problem!!

When I open Sappy, I always get an error message. I installed the one file with all the letters and numbers, then ending with .ocx or something like that. But, it still doesn't open. I get the error message, "Run-time Error 429; ActiveX component can't create object." Then I get this error message. "Runtime Error 372: Failed to load control vbalCboEx.ocx. Your version of vbalCbEx6.ocx may be outdated. But I have the newest one.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Sappy 2003 doesn't exist. Most likely you're using Sappy 2006. If you're using Vista you're going to want to track down the 2005 version.

Yes, that's why you look through the thread before asking questions

Well, I finally got Sappy to open. When I hit "Assemble Song", I put in my .s file under the first open, a free space under the second option. I kept the third option as it was. When I click on "Assemble that Ugly Thing!", sappy closes on me, and shows me an error message.

How do I fix this?
