Yeah. I just edited the intro themes (the ones with the drums) to use HGSS instruments, but other than that, no, I did not edit existing voicegroups.

Yes, hopefully I find a slot to put it in.

Thats great. How are you progressing with the Emerald patch? I'm making an Emerald hack and I noticed a few instruments were missing in your patch. I'm porting some music from Black & White so I'll be using your Emerald patch as a base since all the NDS samples will be there.

I've inserted every instrument into the Emerald patch. You lost likely assembled the song into the wrong voicegroup. The Romhack.me page has my most recent update, so maybe the song you want is in the new update. If not, then tell me what song you want to insert and I'll tell you which offset the voicegroup is located at.

Plus there's a BW music patch coming out soon, so why use HGSS instruments?

Thats great then. I didn't take a look thoroughly so maybe I missed it.

That's because I'll be using a combination of music from all games and I have my own tracks done and some of them "remixed". So I was pretty much looking for a base instead.

Well it'd be a good idea to use the BW as a base, then import the necessary instruments from here. BW is more work, so it's best you don't waste time importing from there. Just a few more days hopefully.

Does anyone actually have a list that has all of the HG/SS instrument numbers on them, or do we kinda have to just mix and match them?

Because when I've been inserting my custom songs with the DPPt instrument patch, I had to mix and match some instruments cause they weren't the same as the GBA instrument numbers either.

Gamefreak did that to throw us off, too bad we're SMART
So there's not a list, but you could pick them out by ear. The most common is 29 (trumpet).

lol I think the different instrument numbers are because of the software that the composer used. You can tell that the software used by HGSS's primary composer was also used for Gen. 5 because if you assembled an unmodified Icirrus City .s file (this goes for some other songs, too) into a HGSS voicegroup, the song will actually sound correct (if you disregard the lower quality and differently pitched instruments used in HGSS)

Things are going good :P
What emulator are you using? I've had this problem with my iPhone emus, but not VBA. I'm pretty sure this is happening because I'm having issues with changing a pointer near the song table. I will try to have it fixed for the next update or maybe earlier.

Just to clarify, if you have a .sav or .sgm1 file with your hack name, you will get errors due to the RAM being changed. This is because we repointed from the original RAM area, so you will need to delete those or reset (Ctrl + R in VBA)

Don't say that... And there is more than one person working on this.
Anyway, thanks for the feedback. I myself am about to use the DS ADSR values, so it will be an exact replica of HGSS.

May I please ask if this is compatible with hacks in progress?

Sorry, I read the readme. How do I expand the ROM and will it corrupt it at all past 0x1000000?

Sorry again ignore those two I figured it out, I can't use offset 720000 because I have data in it already. Am I in trouble?

Forget the 720000. It's just a playsong script, totally removable. Just change all pointers to 720000 to a
release
end script.

Thanks I fixed that up, but my ROM is corrupting when I enter the second data bit at 0x071A40C because I have overwritten data there too. Is this repointable? I assume:
Quote:
Offset 0x035061C Change bytes to E0 A5 71
is referencing this data bit. So is this the only pointer in this data bit to fix?

I have no idea what goes there, but it may be the event data for the script at 720000
So just don't repoint it, leave it how it was.

I always delete the savs and sgm files when testing something out, just in case. It happens with VBA.

maybe its just me but im getting some pretty annoying reverb noise(like a small amount of instrument noise left over after each track plays or moves to a different track) for the emerald patches. Ive tried it with several different clean roms and used ups correctly. Its not super bothersome but it may be somethnig you want to look into. It seems to play perfect on fire red though. Maybe im missing an extra step??

It's a bug that I overlooked because it doesn't occur with the emu that I'm using for testing. It should be an easy fix, so I plan on fixing it either before or during the next update.

know what it is now, it's that you repointed the 16 tracks to an insufficient RAM area. Change it again, this time with enough space (00)

Well 1 I've been focusing on the GB music counterparts, 2 I've been focusing on the BW music patch, and 3 I've been kinda busy with my own hacks. So thanks for the nudge, I'll get to them.
