Well to start, does the song play in Sappy? If not, there's your problem. And second off, be more specific, what ISN'T working? Is it not playing in the game, is it not exporting them? If you want me to help you with the problem you have to be more specific about it. But yes, generally, if it actually plays in Sappy and you did all that it should work. Another thing is try closing out Sappy after assembling, THEN open it back up and try to export the files. After that you should be able import the track to the backup rom and it'll work. And if the problem is you can't FIND the exported tracks, you can do something like "C:\PokemonHack\$T" to make SURE the files get dumped where you want them to.

When I downloaded the vbal whatever it was file I got this message when I tried to open it.

Run-Time error '372':

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 Your version of vbalcbex6.ocx may be outdated.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.

Is there a version with both vbalcboex and vbalcbex6.ocx cause it aint working for me.

@ narutofoxlover:
search in the internet for the file, then put it into the system 32 folder.
then, click start and execute (I hope it's the right word, I'm from austria so my pc is in german).
there you type:
regsvr32 C: \windows\system32\vbalcbex6.ocx (no space after the C:, but there'd be a smiley without the space -.-)
this is for windows XP, if you have another system the just type in the direction of your system32 folder.
and press enter.
Then there should be a message that the new file has been succesfully registered.
try opening sappy again afterwards.


@12345: You have to open the s-file in wordpad and enter commands to loop it.
Here in the tutorial section, clonex25 wrote a tutorial about it.

I'm sorry it's german, and it looks like vista (it's XP, I tuned the style with vista inspirat).
Maybe you find it with the help of the symbol?

@lassedasse: the ocx file is just a file which is necessary to make sappy work. You don' open it. Just past it in the system32 folder and register it like I wrote above.
If your sappy already works, there's no need to do this.

There isnt a option on the bottom menu for the execute thing that your talking about. I allready looked for the option in the system help file but it found nothing. I need pictures to show me how to do it or a step by step thing to help me out here.

Spoiler:



Klick the start button, in vista it looks like a glass ball, in XP it's just a normal button.

Then search for this symbol:


And click it. Then just type what I wrote above ô.O
maybe lassedasse is right, and it says "run". Like I said, I have a german computer so I'm not sure if it is "run" or "execute" or whatever.


I hope you get it now

Little guide for people experiencing "Missing OCX" error is right here:

Vista users experiencing"Missing OCX error"
You need to download the named OCX file. It's an ActiveX control which is necessary for the program to operate. You can search for this file in Google. Then, download the file. Now, put the downloaded file onto desktop, just for convenience, or open your folder with downloaded files. Press Start button and type "system32" without the quotes into the search box and press Enter. It will open the system32 folder. Now, drag the OCX file and drop it into the folder. You are done.

XP users experiencing"Missing OCX error"
You need to download the named OCX file, as said above. It's an ActiveX control which is necessary for the program to operate. You can search for this file in Google. Then, download the file. Now, put the downloaded file onto desktop, just for convenience, or open your folder with downloaded files. Open My Computer folder and paste into the address bar: "%SystemRoot%\System32" without the quotes. It will open the system32 folder. Now, drag the OCX file and drop it into the folder. You are done.

Alright, I hope I haven't missed someone else reporting this problem already.

First off, Sappy does open for me, but when I try to open a ROM such as Fire Red or Emerald, or actually ANY ROM is says the following:

Code:
The game you loaded (gamecode [insert 4 letter header here]) is not known.
Would you like to scan for the song table now?
I say yes, it says something about an xml file for easy future loading, and then continues to run, but without any song or game information whatsoever.

well, that's easy to explain...the rom isn't supportet ''
Maybe the language was a problem.

And @Martin: Yeah you're right with that, but sometimes you already HAVE the newest version of the file, but it keeps showing the error message.
Then it's nor registered and you have to use the regsvr32 command to register it
That was my problem some time ago.

@naturofoxlover: which operator system do you use, XP. 2000 or vista?
Pls tell me what exactly you typed into the box

ô.O
Of course, US version of Firered is supported. I use it myself with sappy.
Maybe you changed, accidently or not, the header code of the rom and now sappy can't load it.
Can u open it in AM, UnLZ, cyclone etc.?

The code I mean is BPRE, which is the normal one and says the programm: Hello, I'm this version, so load this data.
It can be changed with the header editor or whatever it may be called, or through hex. If it's changed, tools wont recognize which version it is and will say: Unsupportet or Unknown.
So maybe you changed it accidently, I don't know. Just try opening it with other tools.

edit: Download the Rom header editor advance from -hackmew-'s toolbox--> Here

Open the rom, and write BPRE into the game code box.
If there's already BRPE inside..dunno, just delete it and write it again and save.
I hope that's the problem.
