The error message looks like this:

Error #1002, "Syntax error"

On line: "byte &Hbc -- Diamond & Pearl- Trainer Battle_key+0"


What do I need to do to make it work ?

Do you have "MPlayDef.s" in your folder?

Yup, to start with I didn't, but when I moved it, it still came up as an error "/

Humm ok!

See my website for learning music hacking (I can't you all explain.)

1st : .mid to .s file
2nd : music looping
3rd : instruments
4th : insert to sappy

Whenever I click 'Assemble that Ugly Thing' it comes up with a box saying 'Can't find file "MPlayDef.s" for inclusion. Assembly halted.
What does that mean?

It mean you don't have "MPlayDef.s" file.
You can obtain this file here.

Download Sappy and install it with the assistant.

(Note : Sappy 12 only works with Windows XP or virtual PC).

I got a song ripped from HG, and, when I assemble the .S file, and save the individual files to insert into the second copy of the rom, all it does is extract the song I want to overwrite. I followed it EXACTLY and it never works. As well, after I assemble the file, and browse through the songs, it skips the song I overwrote, and if I try to play it, Sappy crashes and closes. What am I doing wrong?

Well, you could simply export the tracks from that tune (Somewhere near 358) and then import into the gym leader space (which is 460). Couldn't be easier.

I have a bunch of questions, I hope somebody on the board responds soon.
#1: How do I get Sappy Working? I am able to have it open, but when I go to load a ROM first it asks if I want to scan for a song table. Then if I select a song from the ROM and press PLAY the program closes!

#2: Would I be able to ADD songs to the GBA Pokemon ROM file and not replace them.

#3: Say I could ADD music and not replace it; how would I set a MAP in the Pokemon ROM to USE the NEW MUSIC?

I am using Windows XP, latest Service Pack. (I think it is Service Pack 3)

Alright, does ANYONE have a version of Sappy 1.0.1, or can provide a link that isn't broken? Since the link to TheHelmetedRodent thing is dead.

If it wouldn't be too much to ask (if you do have 1.0.1) could you upload it or .rar it please?

Thank you.

THIS MAKES NO SENSE! I don't under stand how you inport music!


" Importing music from one Pokemon GBA game to another is easy. First open the Pokemon GBA game you want music from like for instance, if I wanted to take music from Ruby and put it in Fire Red, I would open Ruby. Then I'd simply select the song I want to put into the other game and go to export tracks. Once you're in the export tracks window, check all the tracks, type "$T" in the second box and all your tracks will be exported to numbered files(1, 2, 3, 4, 5 you get the point). After that, open the game you want to insert the music into and find the track you want to replace. After that choose import tracks and import the numbered tracks you dumped and press okay. Congrats, you've successfully taken music from one GBA Pokemon and inserted it into another."

My Sappy Won't work and what am i supposed to open my emerald with, Sappy?

Okay, Sappy does not work for me either. I've even tried the Vista "Fix". I just cannot import anything.

Only the old Sappy will work for me. If I download any others, like Sappy portable, AVG tells me I have a virus. Why?

Ok... I need help! I insert the track with the assemble song and it works. I play the game and it freezes just before the music starts. So I did the export tracks and import tracks thingy and I open the unmodified ROM that I did import on. I get to that bit of music but I get no sound, even on full volume. Help me please!
