    Hello, if I may ask, why do you chose to make a sideshow hack rather than a hack with a brand new story and stuff? I mean no offense when I ask this

    I never actually played 4 swords (what with it requiring 3 other people to play), but in Sappy at least, it plays back significantly crisper.

    The main notable thing is that it has half the normal number of ticks per measure (96 as opposed to the midi standard 192).

    This is why the tempo value gets halved, and why modulation values need to be halved when porting down from DS or up from GB, because both of those systems work on a 192 tick measure system.

    The M4AA engine is very bad at modulation at high speeds (see the utter failure of it to correctly play back the GSC Rocket Hideout as an example).

    Finally, it doesn't seem to have any obvious way to control the noise channels, unlike the GB, although it may simply be a case of finding the right conversions, and the engine has nothing to do with it.

    Yeah, I noticed the clarity drop in ALTTP as well. Interestingly, ALTTP's sister game (on GBA) Four Swords used the M4AA engine, at least partially.

    It might use a completely separate engine. Seems pretty unlikely, since most, but not all, Nintendo games use the M4AA engine.

    The quality is probably because the samples are low quality. I can't definitively say that, but that's probably the reason.

    As it happens, through debugging I found a set of somewhat random looking numbers accessed whenever the game uses a noise track on GSC. I suspect these numbers may be related to what you're talking about in that they set how the noise track is played.

    I haven't yet found the same table on RBY, but through debugging, I should be able to find it.

    As to porting it over to the GBA, I don't know. You managed by doing a sort of "by ear" conversion, so perhaps it would be useful to start from there?

    Also, I am having severe issues with the modulation in one particular song from gen 2. The Team Rocket hideout has such a high modulation rate (127, the max value!) that the whole note becomes distorted, rather than producing a smooth note like the GBC. Any thoughts?
