Title: Music Guide and FAQ
Post by: Vyse on June 20, 2009, 05:03:11 PM
If you want a shorter but vaguer guide using Audacity, use Slashy's here (http://www.smashboards.com/showthread.php?t=240616). If you want clear, precise instructions on getting your loops perfect, use mine. But remember: no guide is going to magically enable you to make perfect loops with no effort. Getting perfect loops requires more than a good guide; it requires work, a good ear, and lots of patience.

FAQ (http://forums.kc-mm.com/index.php?topic=9.msg10#msg10)
Please read this before asking any questions. It has solutions to several common problems that are asked about far too much (hence Frequently Asked Questions).

This update makes the entire guide much more concise.

The guide's instructions include color coding for various important elements. The key is as follows:
Green is for keyboard commands.
Yellow is for menu commands.
Teal is for attributes and other important things.

This will be easier to follow if you at least attempt reading the guide first, or, ideally, read along with it.

-------------------------------
2. Getting Started (#start)
Welcome to the world of music hacking! I'm Professor Vyse.

Erhem. Glad to have you; it's always nice to see what other people will bring to the table. To that end, I'll provide you with everything you need to know in order to make your own custom brawling music. You're taking another big step towards becoming a Pokemon master making your personal, individual copy of Brawl.

-- Setting up Androu's tool (#setup)
Before I continue, I'll address a question I still hear far too often: why use Androu's tool instead of BCSM or BrawlBox? The answer: volume. Both BCSM and BrawlBox attempt to normalize the volume of new brstms to match that of Brawl's default songs, and the results are spotty at best. Androu's tool allows you complete control of your song, including its volume. That does make it easier to make a mistake, but it also ensures that your song will be perfect once you know what you're doing. And that's what this guide is for!

Now, then. Once you've downloaded the rar from the link provided in Needed Tools, make a new folder at the root of your hard drive (where Program Files and the like are). Give it a name with NO SPACES. Extract the brstm tool into this folder.

You will see a folder with the name "Copy the files in this folder to your SYSTEM folder." These files should go into C:\Windows\System32.

Create a folder named EditedSongs in the root of the music tool. This is how it should look when it's ready:

(http://forums.kc-mm.com/TutorialImages/MusicTool.png)

-- A base brstm (#base)
The tool requires one brstm in the OriginalSongs folder in order to function. As far as I know, any brstm (and there are plenty available in this forum) will work, but for your convenience, the current download in #tools already includes one.

Once you have this in the OriginalSongs folder, you are ready start your own grand adventure in the world of Pokemon music hacking.
-------------------------------
3. Making a Song (#song)

-- Regular loop or custom loop? (#loop)

Before you start editing your song, you need to decide something.

All brstms, except some victory themes, should loop. The decision: do you want to make a regular loop or a custom loop?

A regular loop starts over at the beginning of the song once it reaches the end. They’re much easier to make than custom loops, because you avoid the 14336 rule, but it’s much more difficult to make them sound as smooth and seamless as custom loops – without cutting away chunks of the song.

A custom loop plays through the entire song once and, once it reaches the end, restarts somewhere in the middle. It requires more effort, but if you follow this guide and develop a good ear, you’ll almost always create a better brstm than you would have using a regular loop.

-- Editing (#edit)

Open your song in GoldWave. If it’s not in mp3 format already, save it as one. You might want to close the version you just saved and open the original again to preserve the quality. Open the mp3 in MP3Gain and analyze it. If the volume is lower than the 93-95 decibel range, go to Effect > Volume >Change Volume in GoldWave, type in the appropriate number to get it there, and press OK. Close MP3Gain.

Press Shift+3 to switch to a 10-second view of your song. If you see any silence – empty space – at the start of your song, right-click where it ends and click Set Finish Marker. Press Delete to remove it.

If you want to do all you can to make sure your song won’t glitch when used with the SD Loader, click Effect > Resample and choose 32000 from the drop-down box.

(http://forums.kc-mm.com/TutorialImages/ResampleSelect.png) -> (http://forums.kc-mm.com/TutorialImages/Resample32000.png)

If you chose to make a regular loop, there’s nothing else you have to do in this section. However, you can edit many songs, especially those from video games, such that the end flows smoothly into the beginning, creating a clean loop. If you’re interested in that, reading the following section until you reach the 14336 rule will help you. Otherwise, skip to the Converting section.

--- Extra Instructions for Custom Looping (#custom)

If you’re still reading, that means you’re either doing a custom loop or making a decent-sounding regular loop. Things get a bit trickier from here.

The first step is finding your loop points.  These are two points within the song that sound similar enough that you can jump between them without any noticeable skipping or abrupt tempo changes. With video game music, which is usually made to loop, this is easy; with remixes or commercials songs -- not so much.

The best way to do this is to play the song. Get a feel for it, and listen for similar parts. As you gain more experience with GoldWave, you may find shortcuts here by noticing similar patterns in the waveform and playing only at those spots, but it’s never a bad idea to listen to the music you’re working with.

Once you’ve found some likely loop points, make sure you’re in 10-second view (Shift+3) and look at them more closely. Switch between them frequently (right-clicking on the spots and dropping a cue point will help you remember where they are) and try to spot places where the two waveforms are exactly alike or at least very similar. My video has an excellent example of this.

When you think you’ve found them, left-click on the earlier one to set your start point there and right-click to set your finish point at the later one. Now press the yellow Play button (or Shift+F4). Your song should start playing from the start point you just set. Press Shift+E, click Sample based position, and copy the number in Start, then close the dialog box. Move to your end point and left-click somewhere in the song before it. Playback should jump there. Now press Shift+E again, paste the number you copied back into Start, and click OK. Playback should continue to your set end point then loop back to your start point. (If you're not quick enough on the draw, playback will loop to the most recent location of the start point, but it'll work the next time it reaches the end.)

(http://forums.kc-mm.com/TutorialImages/PlayStart.png) -> (http://forums.kc-mm.com/TutorialImages/PlayClick.png) -> (http://forums.kc-mm.com/TutorialImages/PlayJump.png)

How did it sound? If you weren’t looking at the screen, would you know that the song had jumped to a different point? If so, tweak the location of your start and/or end points and repeat the steps of the previous paragraph until it sounds right.

Once you’ve done this, you’ve finished the hardest part of making a good brstm.

If you’re making a regular loop, make sure your start and end points are where you want your loop to be, then press Ctrl+T. This will cut off the rest of the song, since you aren’t using it. Now skip to the Converting section.

If you’re making a custom loop, there’s one more hurdle to clear: the 14336 rule.

---- The 14336 Rule (#14336)

Remember that number in Start when you pressed Shift+E? Put simply, the 14336 rule states that if that number is not a multiple of 14336, then the song will skip at the loop point when played in Brawl, regardless of how smooth it sounds on your computer.

Does choosing from a limited pool of possible start points and trying to find a matching end point sound like a hassle? A huge headache that you don’t want to deal with? It should, because it is – but that’s not what we’re going to do.

Instead, we’re going to turn the loop point you already found into a multiple of 14336 by adding silence to the beginning of the song.

If you’re thinking about making any objections, consider this: the standard sampling rate is 44,100 Hz; Brawl’s standard is 32,000 Hz. That means each second consists of 44,100 or 32,000 samples respectively. You will be adding, at most, 14335 samples of silence to the very beginning of your song. That’s less than one-third or less than one-half of a second, depending on your sampling rate: completely negligible.

First, make sure your start and end points are where you want your loop to be. Press Shift+E. Open two instances of Windows Calculator. In one of them, type 14336, press +, then start pressing = until you reach the first number greater than the number in Start in GoldWave. Copy this number to the second calculator (Notepad works too, but this is easier.) Copy the number in Start, go to the first calculator, press -, paste in the number, and press =. The result is the number of samples of silence you’ll be adding to your song.

(http://forums.kc-mm.com/TutorialImages/14336Find.png) -> (http://forums.kc-mm.com/TutorialImages/14336Subtract.png)

Back in GoldWave, copy the number in Finish and paste it into Start. Click on Finish again, and insert a 1 before the first digit. Press Enter. You should get a warning that the value has been adjusted. Press Enter two more times, then press Delete. You’ve just removed everything after your song’s ending loop point.

Now press Ctrl+A to select your entire song. Go to Edit > Insert Silence and choose 0.5 from the drop-down box. Press Shift+E again. Subtract the number in Finish from the number currently stored in your first calculator. Copy and paste the resulting number into Finish and remove the negative sign. Press Enter, then Delete. You’ve now deleted the extra silence, and the loop point you found earlier is now a multiple of 14336.

(http://forums.kc-mm.com/TutorialImages/SilenceInsert.png) -> (http://forums.kc-mm.com/TutorialImages/SilenceSelect.png) -> (http://forums.kc-mm.com/TutorialImages/SilenceSubtract.png) -> (http://forums.kc-mm.com/TutorialImages/SilencePaste.png)

Compare (http://forums.kc-mm.com/TutorialImages/14336Final.png) to (http://forums.kc-mm.com/TutorialImages/PlayStart.png)

To check, press Ctrl+A, then click the yellow Play key. Use the same trick from when you were finding your loop point, but paste the number from your second calculator into Start. It should sound exactly the same as it did before.

Don’t close that second calculator! You’ll need it later, in the Converting stage.

-- Converting (#convert)

--- Stereo or Mono? (#type)
You now have another decision to make. Do you want your song in stereo or mono?

Stereo offers better sound quality at the expense of being twice as large as a mono brstm and having a few more steps in the converting process. (To be honest, I don’t think anyone makes mono songs anymore.)

--- Creating Your brstm(#brstm)

Get to the folder on your hard drive where you extracted the brstm tool. Double-click Start.bat. Enter A for mono or B for stereo, then enter the name of the brstm in OriginalSongs. It will then tell you to "read the enclosed instruction booklet." Instead, refer to the following paragraph that matches the option you chose.

---- Mono (#mono)

In GoldWave, click File > Save As. Navigate to the root of the music tool. Change the file type to Wave and the attributes to PCM signed 16-bit mono. If you're using the brstm I provided, you will see a file named w23.wav. Save your current song with the same name and click Yes when asked if you want to replace it.

(http://forums.kc-mm.com/TutorialImages/Mono.png)

---- Stereo (#stereo)

In GoldWave, press Ctrl+A to make sure you have the whole song selected. Now press Ctrl+Shift+L to select only the left channel. Click File > Save Selection As. Navigate to the root of the music tool. Change the file type to Wave and the attributes to PCM signed 16-bit mono. If you’re using the brstm I provided, you’ll see two files: w23L.wav and w23R.wav. Save the current selection as w23L. Press Ctrl+Shift+R to select the right channel, then click File > Save Selection As and save over w23R.

(http://forums.kc-mm.com/TutorialImages/StereoChannelSelect.png) -> (http://forums.kc-mm.com/TutorialImages/StereoSaveLeft.png) -> (http://forums.kc-mm.com/TutorialImages/StereoSaveRight.png)

Go back to the tool and press Enter. When the tool asks for your starting loop point, enter 0 for a regular loop or paste the number from your second calculator for a custom loop. Give the song a name when prompted, and you’re done! If you want to make sure it came out right, jump to the Testing section.
-------------------------------
4. Making a Victory Theme (#victory)
Victory themes are the songs that play after a brawl, at the results screen. They do not loop. However, it is fine to make looping victory themes. If you want to do that, just treat it like a regular song and refer to one of the above sections.

-- Mono (#vmono)

Step 1: Editing Your Song
Open your mp3 or wma or wav or whatever in Goldwave. Edit the song however you like. You may want to do things like cutting out extraneous silence at the beginning or end.

Once you're done editing your song, click File > Save As and change the file type to mp3. Open MP3Gain and run this mp3 through it to find out the volume of your song. Go back to your song in Goldwave. Click Effect > Volume > Change Volume and add enough decibels in the upper-right corner of the dialog box to bring the volume to 94 decibels.

You may want to move the mp3 you saved to another folder, to have as a backup in case you want to tweak it later.

Step 2: Using the Tool
Get to the folder on your hard drive where you extracted the brstm tool. Double-click Start.bat. Enter C for mono, then enter the name of the brstm in OriginalSongs. It will then tell you to "read the inclosed instruction booklet." Refer to the following paragraphs instead.

Go back to Goldwave. Click File > Save As. Change the File Type to .wav, and change the attributes to PCM signed 16-bit mono. If you're using the starter Pokemon brstm I provided, you will see a file named w23.wav. Save your current song with the same name and say Yes when asked if you want to replace it.

Go back to the tool and finish up.

And that's it! If you want to check your brstm to make sure it came out properly, skip to the "Testing Your Song in BrawlBox" (#test) section. If you want to get right to inserting it into your game, see the "Adding Your Song to Brawl" (#brawl) section.

-- Stereo (#vstereo)
Open your mp3 or wma or wav or whatever in Goldwave. Go to File > Save As. Change the File Type to .wav and the attributes to PCM signed 16-bit stereo. Save it in the root of the music tool. Edit the song however you like. You may want to do things like cutting out extraneous silence at the beginning or end.

Once you're done editing your song, click File > Save As and change the file type to mp3. Open MP3Gain and run this mp3 through it to find out the volume of your song. Go back to your song in Goldwave. Click Effect > Volume > Change Volume and add enough decibels in the upper-right corner of the dialog box to bring the volume to 94 decibels.

You may want to move the mp3 you saved to another folder, to have as a backup in case you want to tweak it later.

Step 2: Using the Tool
Get to the folder on your hard drive where you extracted the brstm tool. Double-click Start.bat. Enter D for stereo, then enter the name of the brstm in OriginalSongs. It will then tell you to "read the inclosed instruction booklet." Refer to the following paragraphs instead.

Go back to Goldwave. Press Ctrl+A. Right-click on the left (upper green) channel and click Channel to select just that channel. Go to File > Save Selection As. If you're using the starter Pokemon brstm I provided, you will see two new files named w23L.wav and w23R.wav. Save the current selection as w23L.wav and say Yes when asked if you want to replace it. Now right-click on the right (lower red) channel and click Channel. Go to File > Save Selection As. Name it w23R.wav and say Yes when asked if you want to replace it.

Go back to the tool and finish up.

And that's it! If you want to check your brstm to make sure it came out properly, skip to the "Testing Your Song in BrawlBox" (#test) section. If you want to get right to inserting it into your game, see the "Adding Your Song to Brawl" (#brawl) section.
-------------------------------
5. Testing Your Song in BrawlBox (#test)
Now that you've made a brstm (or downloaded one from someone else), you probably want to see if it sounds good before you put it in your game. That's what this section is for!

Playing a Song (#play)
Download BrawlBox from the link in #tools. Extract it somewhere. From here, you have three options for playing your brstms: you can run BrawlBox.exe and open a brstm from File > Open; you can make a desktop shortcut for BrawlBox and drag and drop brstms onto it; or you can set up a file association so that double-clicking a brstm opens it in BrawlBox automatically.

However you choose to do it, this is what you'll end up seeing:
(http://forums.kc-mm.com/TutorialImages/BrawlBoxPlay.png)

Make sure the Loop box is checked, and press Play. When the song reaches the end, it will loop over. If it sounds good, you're done!
-------------------------------
6. Changing Music Titles (#titles)
So you've added a bunch of your own music to the game, but you want it to feel more authentic? Look no further! In this section, you'll learn how to change the names of the songs in the game and the My Music menu. The SD Loader is compatible with music titles.

Editing info_en.pac

Info_en.pac controls the music titles at the start of a match.

To edit it, use Brawlbox, provided in the #tools section. Open info_en in BrawlBox, and click on MiscData[140]. You'll find the music titles here. Start changing them to whatever you want -- there are no length limitations.

(http://forums.kc-mm.com/TutorialImages/TitleInfo.png)

When you're done, click save.

If you are using the SD Loader, look at the size of the file. If it is above 391 KB, you need to click on MiscData160 and start replacing messages you think you'll never see or don't care about with single dashes (-) until the file size drops to 391 KB. ISO users do not need to worry about this.

Editing mu_menumain_en.pac

This file controls music titles in the My Music menu.

Editing this is easy if you've already edited info_en. Just right-click MiscData[140] in info_en, click Export and save it somewhere. Then open mu_menumain, right click MiscData[7], click Replace, and double-click the MiscData[140] you just saved. Save it and you're done.

(http://forums.kc-mm.com/TutorialImages/TitleInfoExport.png) -> (http://forums.kc-mm.com/TutorialImages/TitleMenuReplace.png) -> (http://forums.kc-mm.com/TutorialImages/TitleMenuSelect.png)

If you're using the SD Loader and you had to edit MiscData[160] in info_en, you'll need to export that as well and replace MiscData[9] in mu_menumain with it. Again, ISO users do not have to worry about this.
-------------------------------
7. Adding Your Files to Brawl (#brawl)
Ready to hear your custom song in action? We're almost ready to play!

-- SD Loader (#dsdl)

Create the following path in your SD card and place your songs there. Then use the track list in the first post here (http://www.smashboards.com/showthread.php?t=245410) to give the files their correct names.

X:/private/wii/app/RSBE/pf/sound/strm

To add edited music titles: Remove the _en from the names of both info and mu_menumain. The file path for info.pac is pf\info2. The path for mu_menumain.pac is pfmenu2. That is not a typo.

ISO Modification (#isomod)

Make sure you have the track list provided in Needed Tools before beginning.

Open your Brawl ISO in WiiScrubber (make sure you have the key.bin to make WiiScrubber work!).

Expand Data (partition 2), then scroll down to and expand sound. Expand strm to find every music file in the game. Use the Track List to find the song you want to replace. Right-click it and click Load. Navigate to EditedSongs (or wherever you keep your brstms) and double-click the song you want to put in. WiiScrubber will spend... quite a while on this, so be patient. When it's done, it will give you a message ("Replacing complete, now reparsing" or something very similar). Click OK, and after a moment, you will be back at the root of the ISO. Navigate back to strm and replace the next track you want to change. Repeat for every song you want to add. When you're done and WiiScrubber has reparsed the ISO, click X to close it (click Yes when asked if you're sure).

If using the USB Loader, follow the instructions in the link provided with it in #tools. If using the backup launcher, install it on your Wii. Put a DVD in your disc drive, run ImgBurn, set the burn speed to 2x, and begin. Ignore the message telling you there's not enough space (assuming you're using the full ISO and a single-layer DVD). After a while (about 55% completion), you will get an error saying it ran out of space. Ignore it, then tell it to finalize the disc anyway when prompted. Put the disc in your Wii and play!

Enjoy your custom music!


Title: Music Guide and FAQ (Updated!)
Post by: Vyse on June 20, 2009, 05:05:38 PM
FAQ

From now on, any thread or post asking a question that is already answered in this FAQ will be deleted without warning. I didn't write this so you could ignore it.

Index
1. SD Loader!
2. Out of space! D:
3. Restrictions?
4. Track list plz
5. Goldwave?
6. Static/song switching in-game?

1. Does the music work with the SD Loader?
Yes, but currently it's only for NTSC. PAL users will have to wait.

2. WiiScrubber says I'm out of space on the ISO!
[credit to moosehunter] "See those dummy1.dat and dummy2.dat files on the root of the game partition, replace those with any 1kb file and you've just freed up 400mb of space"

3. Do I have to use the song I want to replace as the base for making a song? As in, if I want to replace Battlefield, do I have to use the Battlefield brstm to make my song?
No. You can keep one brstm in OriginalSongs and use it as the base for every song you make.

4. How do I know what each song is on the ISO? "W24" doesn't tell me anything... Can I get a track list or something?
Yeah, sure. (http://www.mediafire.com/?zjm12qdtlxv)

5. Do I have to use Goldwave? I wanna use Audacity or something...
Slashy made a version for Audacity. http://www.smashboards.com/showthread.php?t=240616

6. Sometimes, when I use a song with the SD Loader, I hear a lot of static, or the game suddenly switches to another song. What's up with that?
This problem has varying causes. Try defragmenting your SD card. If that doesn't work, make a backup of everything on the SD card, then reformat it. According to Phantom Wings, songs that have a sampling rate higher than 32 kbps can cause this, but I don't think anyone is going to apologize for making songs too high-quality. Songs replaced on the ISO do not have this problem.

You sure about that SD Loader thing?
Stop rubbing it in!

But --
SHUT UP.

Well, I'm not entirely sure because it's never done this to me, but assuming you have everything correct, I'm gonna take a wild guess -- do you have a cue point near the end?

I seriously have no idea what could be causing it. Take a screencap.

Best guide man.

@ cool

I know what's wrong. When you when make a loop or loop from start to end, you have to drag it all to one side so its highlighted. Or highlight the preferred section of the song you wanted.

Dunno something like that. Maybe a screenshot'll help.

What tools do I need to replace songs in Brawl? I'm just gonna download the songs on here instead of making one myself so most of the tutorial is not needed for me.

Post by: Vyse on June 27, 2009, 06:29:34 PM
Try looking in the "Tools" section.


Title: Re: Music Guide and FAQ
Post by: ???? on June 28, 2009, 12:43:40 AM
So do we need to use the tools in order to download and replace songs in brawl?


Title: Re: Music Guide and FAQ
Post by: Vyse on June 28, 2009, 12:55:55 AM
If you just want to add songs other people have made, all you need is WiiScrubber (and the stuff to use the modified ISO). You could also get the stuff for title editing if you want. If you want to check them out before you put them in your game, see how they sound and loop, you'll want WinAMP and the vgmstream plugin.

Post by: Da Man on June 28, 2009, 02:57:44 AM
That's all I wanted to know, thanks.

Can someone pm me the key.bin file please?

EDIT: Alright got it, but now I'm guessing I need this modified ISO. Not sure if i'm allowed to ask for it though.

EDIT 2: Nvm found something. Btw I got the PAL version of brawl, will this affect anything?


Title: Re: Music Guide and FAQ
Post by: ???? on June 28, 2009, 07:39:09 AM
K thanks!  ;D. But is there a certain type of folder we drop the songs in? Like the "system" folder?


Title: Re: Music Guide and FAQ
Post by: Vyse on June 28, 2009, 08:38:22 AM
You just need a PAL ISO. You use WiiScrubber to modify it...

@MrG&W: Look at the table of contents of the guide. See if you can find the section where I answered that question.


Title: Re: Music Guide and FAQ
Post by: Da Man on June 28, 2009, 10:24:04 AM
I'm downloding a 4.37gb PAL ISO right now, hope it's the right one.

You don't need a modchip, just a Backup Launcher or the USB Loader. Links to both are provided in the Tools section. If you need to downgrade to install the backup launcher, the tools exist, though you'll have to look for them yourself.

I hate to say it Vyse, but you gotta update this, and strike a few things that are no longer facts...

I don't think anyone with a USBGecko did this yet... but as for those with the SD streaming music option... no one has replaced music names yet, right?

Here ya go :)

It does not show up in "My Music" but it does before the match...

This should do for now eh? At least until the SD loader allows your actually patching the names like you guys do in a modified ISO...




Title: Re: Music Guide and FAQ (Updated!)
Post by: Vyse on July 17, 2009, 09:17:17 PM
So it modifies one title for one stage? And you would have to use another 6-line code for a different title? Seems rather limited... Good start, though.


Title: Re: Music Guide and FAQ (Updated!)
Post by: shadowofchaos on July 17, 2009, 11:33:10 PM
It does seem quite limited, and I would think when/if the SD loader code Phantom made eventually has support for editing the .pac files for the titles, that my method would be obsolete, as you don't need to have Gecko OS run so much lines of code just for songs you want to change the title of...

But anyway, while that is still not here... do you mind if I post the codes I'm making here, and just edit this post for the new ones I make? It's not that these codes I make are hard (FAAAR from hard compared to the other hackers) it's just it's time consuming... XD

@Gazoinks
I think theres a problem with 3.5.1's ablility to load info.pac. I am having trouble and Jose Gallardo on gscentral is having trouble with a file he tested using the iso method.
Also, the SD loader can't load the .pac needed to modify the my music menu


Title: Re: Music Guide and FAQ (Updated!)
Post by: Gazoinks on July 21, 2009, 12:38:28 PM
Oh, the SD Loader can't load it?  Isn't that what mu_mainmenu is?  Vyle should take that out of his guide if so.

I stand corrected.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=907fUZnEhqQ
You have to be careful though.
The info.pac file can't be bigger than the one on disk AFTER COMPRESSSION.
This means that even if you do like the guide says and dont increase the length of anything, if the compressor can't compress it as well, it will just freeze :(

mu_mainmenu.pac doesn't seem to be loaded by the 3.5.1 FPC

*shrug* I didn't test it, I just went with Phantomwings said. That's my fault. I'll amend the guide.

When it says what is the length of the song, you go to your RONG folder, and there's a .txt there misspelled Lentgh (or something like that). Open it, and it will tell you. Or, you can just shift e on the edited A01L in Goldwave, and it will tell you in the sample box.

What? my sample based position for both is start=0 finish=10645632
the text file lentgh has nothing in it. it's just blank.
and then there's another text file called newA01R the guide says to just type 0 when it asks for the starting point(if you don't want custom loops which i don't) again at step 9 it says"specified file cannot be found" i just don't know whats going on since after it says song will be found in edited songs folder but nothing is in there.

Oh, sorry, I read incorrectly. Only thing I can guess is that you put spaces in your song title. If you did, retype the song name with no spaces.

well there are no spaces in the name(still says "specified file not found" and the song will be in editedsongs but again it's not in there"). Maybe it's a problem in the playback rate. what is the rate ur supposed to use?

Or, it's probably because you saved on A01L, and A01R pcm signed to 16-bit stereo. You were suppose to sign to mono.


Title: Re: Music Guide and FAQ (Updated!)
Post by: Vyse on July 25, 2009, 11:17:26 PM
When you save the channels individually, they need to be mono, not stereo. You only save in stereo when you're saving the whole song.


Title: Re: Music Guide and FAQ (Updated!)
Post by: codfish92 on July 26, 2009, 02:32:10 PM
well even after saving the L and R as pcm 16 bit mono, it still does the same thing.

If you guys are having trouble doing it the old way, give my tool a shot.

Hi there, I have gone through all the steps word for word, doing it the same way since about 3 PM and every time I get this message saying "that the specified file could not be found." And after that it says I can find my BRSTM in the EditedSongs folder, but when I look the folder is completely empty.

Heres a screen shot as well.
http://i30.tinypic.com/30lkizn.jpg

I doubt I am doing anything wrong since I read through the guide about 12 times. Also I took the easy route and just did a Stereo song without custom looping.

Any and all help is appreciated.

Did you make the brstm yourself? If not, preview it in winamp.

OK, I honestly don't know what's up with people not getting brstms using the latest version of the tool. It works fine for both me and Androu, so unless someone posts a screenshot of that "cannot find the specified file" error, he can't fix it. (How do you fix something that isn't broken for you?)

Until we get something that actually helps Androu fix this mysterious error, use the previous version of the tool (http://stacksmash.cultnet.net/androu1/downloads/Androu1-BRSTMMaker_BRSTM2SD-_HopefullyFinal_.rar).

If you look in my post above I did leave a screen shot of the "Cannot find the specific file" error, but I will post it again.

Also thanks for the download to the older version, I will try it out and post back whether or not it works for me.

Edit: No matter what I did, I couldn't get that error. However, I did try something so simple that I'll be amazed if it works. Try this version (http://www.mediafire.com/?gondryyjhtw). (I accidentally left my brstm in OriginalSongs, which is why the dl is a bit large.)

Hey just to let you know, I just tried the old version of the tool and it works perfectly. So I honestly haev no idea what was going on with the other one.

I will try the one you just gave the link too as well, just to see.

Well I just tried the other one and it didn't work, but the old version works great no matter what. So I will just stick with it for now.

Here's two more screen shots of what happened.

Before it cleans out the folder:

I've uploaded a revised track list. I recently discovered several errors and unclear names while adding a ton of music, so I fixed it up as I went along. That should help you. Get it here (http://www.mediafire.com/?zjm12qdtlxv).

If you look at that, you'll see there are two brstms for Obstacle Course: E02 and E07. The game loads one of these at random when the match starts, and it switches between them (not sure of the intervals). You can replace both of them with the same track (though it won't loop properly due to the switching), or you can use two different brstms to get alternating music.

There's a tracklist right there, and if you can't find that either.

And if you're one of those SD Loader users. >_>

"To add songs: Make sure the songs you want to add are in your EditedSongs folder. Run BRSTM2SD and follow the instructions. It's really just that simple."

Well now, look at that. Step 6 in the guide.

Now obviously, the tracklist has the names of the songs in Brawl. So the songs you want to add have to be renamed, were you having trouble thinking? It's just like character textures. BRSTM2SD adds the damn songs you want to your SD card. I bet you didn't even know what the tool's name meant, didn't you? <_<

Or, if you want to do that manually.

Title: Re: Music Guide and FAQ (Updated!)
Post by: Vyse on August 21, 2009, 08:35:58 PM
OK, I did a bit of experimenting, and I recreated your error.

The problem is that you're not saving the channels as individual mono wav files; you're saving the whole song with both channels as A01L (and possibly A01R). Watch the video again, make sure you do everything exactly as I do, and you should be fine.

The mu_menumain.pac (the file for titles in My Music) does not work at all, and info_en.pac (for the titles at the start of a game) has specific requirements. Both work perfectly in the ISO.

You need to read the relevant section of the guide for the set of titles you want to change.

It's not complicated. Info.pac has a tool that lets you make titles any length and creates a new info.pac for you. The My Music pac is slightly harder to modify, but there's a tool for it that simplifies some of the work. Everything you need is in the Tools section. I seriously don't know what else to tell you besides "Read the guide and stop acting like it's written in Russian."

Okay, I'm having a little issue with music that just cropped up last night.  Basically I added a slew of new songs to my SD card yesterday, overwriting some that I was ready to part with in the process.

That all went fine and dandy, but now some of the new songs I added are looping somewhat randomly into other songs.  For example, a song I have on Battlefield (T02) will randomly go into a Final Destination song (T03).  I've noticed that it just skips to the next song on the tracklist, T02 to T03 as I showed in my example, so is it something to do with the songs or the SD card?

Thanks for any help!

It's just an inherent flaw in the code. You can try making a backup of the stuff on the SD card and reformatting it. That fixes it for some people.

In the second post on the first page, question four has a list of songs telling you which Brawl song is which, and what to rename it as to replace it.

I know, I'm renaming them, but nothing happens, I think I'm renaming them the wrong way, can someone give me an example, I spend like 2 hours of m day yesterday trying to make a song, know I want to at least know how to add other pppls, just give me an example on should i rename it, i want to replace the song "X05 - Smash Bros Brawl - Final Destination"

Make sure you have the latest version of the code. You can get a code file in the SD Loader topic (http://kittycorp.freecp.net/index.php?topic=5). Note that if you're PAL, the code doesn't work with music. Once you have it, make sure your file path is right (Shadow posted the correct path above), and you should be fine.

So to replace Final Destination, you would have X:\private\wii\app\RSBE\pf\sound\strm\X05.brstm

hmm.. i'm not entirely sure if this is the thread to post this question, but i'll give it a shot xD

i'm trying to figure out how to increase the volume for a song to play it louder in brawl, but I cant seem to find a way to do that. I tried increasing the volume up to its max in GoldWave, but it pretty much turned out to be the same thing as before. The song i'm trying to make louder is Bleach - Hollowed. Someone made this before, but it was really silent, so I thought i'd try it, and yeah.. failed ._.

btw, why is it bad to add more than two decibels? it seems to be loud enough when I add more. although I am running into an issue right now. when i'm playing with the song, it seems to play another song I hav on my SD card in the middle of it, except the playback of that song is very weird-like.

I was just wondering if some song titles are set to play at a lower volume in brawl, because for the two different songs you can play in Temple, the song title "Great Temple / Temple" plays my song louder than "Temple (Melee)." I used the same BRSTM's for both song titles.


Title: Re: Music Guide and FAQ (Updated!)
Post by: Vyse on September 07, 2009, 06:13:05 PM
Well, I guess it's based on personal preference. Much louder, and you'll ruin the quality of the song in addition to making it overbearingly loud.

As for that issue, try defragging and/or reformatting your SD card.

Messing with intellect of my level isn't smart. Statistics show that I can claim I'm smarter than someone and be right more than 99% of the time. I suppose I'm bound to find that <1% eventually and who knows, maybe it is you, if it is, I apologize. As for being banned, I don't see why, all I've done is protect those who are in need from asswipes like you. Also, I hope you're happy for making me swear like this, I don't like to do that, but will if someone is a big enough [censored]head.

I'm not sure about that 99% thing, considering you had trouble understanding a guide that many others have had no trouble with. Anyway, I'm sure that if you were so smart, you could back up that claim with evidence like I did. But you didn't, ergo you can't and are still just a troll.

"Protect those who are in need"? The Middle Ages ended a few centuries ago, so get off your antiquated high horse. No one cares. Also, no one "made" you swear. These words are typed, premeditated. You have complete control over every word you post. So stop trying to make me look bad by saying I drove you to swearing when in fact you deliberately chose to use those words.

I'm having the same problem while messing with the BRSTM2SD.  I do as it says on the screen, and I get that exact error while trying to replace any file.
What is causing this problem, and how does one go about fixing it?

Also, I tried the SD Loader way and that didn't work either.  I figured it had to be because of two things.  Brawl+ doesn't have it, or I had no code installed for it to even work....but if that's the case, how do I add the code onto it?


Title: Re: Music Guide and FAQ (Updated!)
Post by: Vyse on September 09, 2009, 09:02:58 PM
The latest Brawl+ builds include the file replacement code, so that's not the problem. Is your directory correct?

pf\sound\strm\Example.brstm

If that's correct, and the file is named correctly, there should be no other issues.

As for BRSTM2SD issues: I have no idea. I don't use the SD Loader for music, so I've used BRSTM2SD only so much as it took to write basic instructions for it. Make sure there are no folders in the EditedSongs folder.

In the time it took you to claim (three times!) that you didn't know what it meant, you could have easily looked it up. It's the very first result.

For someone so very smart, you're not very good at being self-sufficient and figuring things out on your own.

No idea if I just missed this or not, but how long does it normally take for a BRSTM loading off the SD Card to load in-game? I know sometimes there is lag accompanied by other items (such as the loading of textures in the past), so figured it wouldn't hurt to ask.

Ha ha, yeah, I remember when tracks had to be in mono and loop from beginning to end. In fact, the old tutorial is here somewhere, at the end of this forum. We brought it over for nostalgic purposes.

Post by: Double D. on November 03, 2009, 11:32:36 PM
Hey Vyse, quick question...I got my song to work and everything, ended up using Xenogears - Stage of Death (Random Battle) theme...now in your guide I DO see that u said that using an SD Loader might not work for music titles, but im not using one, im placing my files directly on my SD card. Now when I tried to do the music title thing, it froze my game after Now Loading. I think somewhere between the info.pac thing and compressing/decompressing I got lost. Heres the instructions I followed...call me "slow" but to ME they seemed a bit vague....

1. First you need to obtain the /menu2/mu_menumain_en.pac and /info2/info_en.pac files from your ISO or download them from http://www.mediafire.com/?gjt2iaoqf0f and put them in this folder.
Get Ntcompress (from the Revolution SDK) and put it in this folder

2. run step 1

3. Open the 2 output files in a hex editor, and search for "Super Smash Bros. Brawl Main Theme"

4. Edit the song names and save the files

5. Run step 2

6. Insert the new files into your game

....What files exactly am I to insert into my game? And into what folder? I looked at your guide and started to get the picture, but im still somewhat lost....so do i insert info.pac, mu_menumain_en.pac..and the info_en.pac into the info2 folder? Or just let me know if I cant change the music titles via manual SD loading so I can just leave this ish alone...

EDIT: Nevermind...i fixededed it....I was assuming too much and gettin ahead of mineself  :P

How do you loop to a point in the song that's not the beginning? Like, if I wanted the song to start at the beginning, and then loop the ending to somewhere in the middle of the song, how would I do that?

Does Goldwave work with MP3 Layer 3 files? I tried and when I saved, it said it couldn't encode... or something like that.

Also, after I set both markers, after it reached the end using the yellow play button, it stopped abruptly...

Does the end marker also need to be a multiple of 14336?

Sorry for all the questions, but I'm not very good at this, obviously.

Go here (http://www.goldwave.com/faq.php#mpeg) and get the MP3 LAME encoder.

For the yellow play button, go to Options > Control Properties and check the Loop box under Yellow Play (in the Play tab).

No, it does not.

I have another question. After I do all the steps, do I just rename the EditedSongs to something.brstm?


Title: Re: Music Guide and FAQ (Updated!)
Post by: Vyse on December 18, 2009, 11:10:40 PM
Don't rename the EditedSongs folder. You can give the finished brstm whatever name you want.


Title: Re: Music Guide and FAQ (Updated!)
Post by: Sajiao Omelette on December 18, 2009, 11:32:51 PM
What I meant is that there's no EditedSongs folder, just a file named EditedSongs with no extension. When I renamed it and put it on my SD card, the song was just, I think, whatever W23 was.

Which download was the EditedSongs folder supposed to come with?


Title: Re: Music Guide and FAQ (Updated!)
Post by: Vyse on December 19, 2009, 12:26:08 AM
Oh. Just make a new folder in the root of the tool named "EditedSongs". If you got the new download I put up yesterday, it didn't include that folder because I just made an rar of the version I use, and all of my music was in it.

Just make a new folder called "EditedSongs" and you'll be fine.


Title: Re: Music Guide and FAQ (Updated!)
Post by: Sajiao Omelette on December 20, 2009, 07:40:45 PM
...last question, I think!

Does Goldwave suddenly make some songs sound really watery at some times or is that just me? It always sounds perfect until right before I make it into a .brstm with Dant's tool. Actually, it only happens with one song, but it always happens.


Title: Re: Music Guide and FAQ (Updated!)

It's great to see a guide with every download link working.
I am only having a few problem getting my songs to play on my system..

I've followed this guide and your video. Everything was working fine but after placing my .brstm files in my SD under private/wii/app/RSBE/pf/sound/strm and naming my song X03.brstm and then running Gecko it still only plays the original Battlefield song.
I've tried using other brstm converters but nothing seems to work.

Any help would be great, thanks.

I know this isnt totally music related but, I downloaded the custom CSS codes, and the ones that get Giga Bowser, and the alloys in the CSS. As well as the code that gives the alloys results screen animations. However, I have a problem. The codes say that they dont wreck "my music" but it did so anyways, and now my game freezes whenever i try to go into it. It does this even when im not using hacks. How do i fix this? Do i have to delete my save data and start over? does that fix it? Otherwise im guessing this means i can no longer do music replacement.


Title: Re: Music Guide and FAQ (Updated!)
Post by: Poliwag on January 16, 2010, 11:04:07 PM

I use NTSC. Perhaps it's a problem when I created the song I can give a brief writing on what I did.

I downloaded all tools and placed them in C:/brawlmusic (no spaces). I then ran gwave and opened a mp3 file song. I saved the song in my brawlmusic folder as a .wav 16bit stereo. I didn't edit the song at all because I didn't think it needed it. I then right clicked the left speaker(green), pressed channel, and then saved selection as "loftyL". I did the same for the right speaker and called it "loftyR". I then ran Start.bat, selected B, typed in w23, and then deleted w23R & w23L. I renamed both loftyR to w23R and loftyL to w23L. I then continued with Start.bat and waited. When it asked me to input the starting point I typed 0 and continued. I named my brstm file lofty. I opened my EditedSongs folder and renamed it to X03. I then stuck it into my SD card under strm.

Not sure if this will help, but I'm thinking it may be because of the rename, I'll test it out.

Check the file size of your .brstm files. If they say 0 KB, or if they make WinAmp crash, then the .brstm didn't convert properly.


Title: Re: Music Guide and FAQ (Updated!)
Post by: Poliwag on January 16, 2010, 11:17:31 PM
The file size is aprox 9500KB. My WinAmp isn't working for brstm formats. I could probably fix the problem following the guide, but I didn't think it was that necessary.

Yes, I got vgmstream, can't figure out how to work it. Test.exe just crashes after I run it. The read me doesn't explain that well.

I tried opening one of my brstm songs on BrawlBox and it only shows me sizes, loop points and etc.. Is it supposed to play songs?


Title: Re: Music Guide and FAQ (Updated!)
Post by: Segtendo on January 18, 2010, 08:42:15 AM
BrawlBox can play it. You can also click "Loop" to loop it while it's playing.


Title: Re: Music Guide and FAQ (Updated!)
Post by: Sajiao Omelette on January 18, 2010, 10:03:19 AM
If you open the readme in vgmstream, I think there's an additional download, and you put that in the plug-in folder of WinAmp.

...BrawlBox > WinAmp.

Thanks for your guys help. I'll see if I can get my brawl box working.

Troubleshooting:
I tried downloading one of Phoenix's songs (the Metal Battle(melee), for battle field) threw it on my SD card under private/wii/app/RSBE/pf/sound/strm and named it X04.brstm (for battle field). Then I ran my Gecko. In the brawl menu I went to Options/My Music and selected Battlefield. I turn all the music except for "Battlefield" off.
It is still only playing the song battlefield, Q_Q. Could it be my Gecko version, or perhaps I'm naming them wrong?

6. Sometimes, when I use a song with the SD Loader, I hear a lot of static, or the game suddenly switches to another song. What's up with that?
This problem has varying causes. Make a backup of everything on the SD card, then reformat it. That might fix it. According to Phantom Wings, songs that have a sampling rate higher than 32 kbps can cause this, but I don't think anyone is going to apologize for making songs too high-quality. Songs replaced on the ISO do not have this problem.

So does reformatting really work because my custom music does this. It will start playing then cut off and play a completely different song. Is it because of having too many custom songs?

Rewrote the main portion of the guide. It's much more concise, and I no longer have any doubt that it's the best guide out there.

Also, show of hands: would anyone like me to write a version for Audacity?

FAQ

6. Sometimes, when I use a song with the SD Loader, I hear a lot of static, or the game suddenly switches to another song. What's up with that?
This problem has varying causes. Make a backup of everything on the SD card, then reformat it. That might fix it. According to Phantom Wings, songs that have a sampling rate higher than 32 kbps can cause this, but I don't think anyone is going to apologize for making songs too high-quality. Songs replaced on the ISO do not have this problem.
Just wanted to say that reformatting, at the very least, worked for me. Sounds like the problem the other two had is the same problem I had (all of my tracks were going without a hitch then I added about 5 and all of them turned to glitchy noise or another song. Now those 5 work perfectly) so it should work. Hope this helps a little, I guess.
Thanks a ton for the guide, it's been incredibly helpful!

Post by: -LzR- on August 13, 2010, 12:55:25 PM
Followed the steps. It said the song has been made to EditedSongs
A file named EditedSongs appears, but it doesn't have an extension and it doesn't work. My song is supposed to be inside it, so it fails. But I follow the guide and have put the files in my system32 folder. Also I did resample it and all that stuff.

Bleh, insertmanyswearshere.
After about an hour of downloading the tools, "following" the instructions as well as I could (Lot of things didn't work at all like they were supposed to, but I expected as much), I got lost in the end when saving the w23L and w23R(In wav and 16monowhatever formats). It said to push Enter on the tool (guessing that was goldwave) and nothing happened. Don't really want help because so many things didn't work before that, it'd probably be broken when I finished anyways.

Just hoping when I start making requests it won't be too much work for you guys. It really is more work to learn this than to request songs, and I'm swallowing my 'pride' after trying to get this to work for so long. =X

Post by: Caliryder209 on August 19, 2010, 04:55:32 PM
Hey guys, I'm new here....just thought I'd throw that out.

Anyway, I've been following this tutorial for a while (as an unregistered user) and finally decided to register to ask: is using the Yellow Play Button on Goldwave really necessary? The version I downloaded doesn't have that, but it does have this green play button in-between two green lines in its place. However, this button doesn't loop the music like the Yellow Play Button does; it only plays the song from the start marker and stops at the finish marker. Sorry if a similar question was already asked, but I didn't feel like looking through the 19 pages of this thread to check.


Title: Re: Music Guide and FAQ
Post by: Vyse on August 19, 2010, 05:34:49 PM
Technically, no, it's unnecessary, but it makes checking your loops much easier.

Where did you get your version of Goldwave? Never heard of it missing a button before.


Title: Re: Music Guide and FAQ
Post by: Caliryder209 on August 19, 2010, 07:34:21 PM
Technically, no, it's unnecessary, but it makes checking your loops much easier.

Where did you get your version of Goldwave? Never heard of it missing a button before.

I got it from the link you provided within the tutorial. Maybe it's been updated to a newer version since you wrote the section dealing with Goldwave? Mine's 5.57. But, if using the Yellow Play button is unnecessary, then is there some other way to enable a looping playback in Goldwave? Cuz I'm just not finding it.

...Although, I can open the song in Sony Vegas Pro, find the loop points by ear, cut the excess from before the starting loop point and after the finishing, and enable a looping playback to see if the two loop points flow smoothly. Then, I'd be able to save the cut region of the song to be looped as an MP3 that will start from the first loop point and end at the finishing one when opened in Goldwave, eliminating the need to ever use its looping playback function since the song will already start and end with the designated loop points.

If I can do that, I am exempt from performing the "--- Extra Instructions for Custom Looping" step and skipping straight to "---- The 14336 Rule"?


Title: Re: Music Guide and FAQ
Post by: Vyse on August 20, 2010, 01:52:54 AM
If I understand you, you're saying you want to cut the song so that the very beginning is the starting loop point, and the very end is the ending loop point, right?

If so, you can ignore the 14336 rule.

Oh, and I have version 5.55. Out of curiosity, can you post a screenshot of what your Goldwave looks like?


Title: Re: Music Guide and FAQ
Post by: Caliryder209 on August 20, 2010, 03:06:25 AM
Lol, yeah, that's basically what I meant to say... sorry, I'm not very good at explaining things. And you're telling me to skip the 14336 rule...so I'd be making a regular loop instead of a custom loop, right?

By the way, here's my screenshot: http://s761.photobucket.com/albums/xx258/Caliryder209/?action=view¤t=Capture.gif (http://s761.photobucket.com/albums/xx258/Caliryder209/?action=view¤t=Capture.gif)


Title: Re: Music Guide and FAQ
Post by: Vyse on August 20, 2010, 10:00:23 AM
Any brstm that loops back to the very beginning is a regular loop, so yes.

Based on how the yellow play key works, I'm guessing that the circled button in your picture is the same thing. If I'm right, and it's not looping, then you should be able to go to Options > Control Properties and check the Loop box for that button. In 5.55, it looks like this:

(http://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d131/ChronoExplosion/Tutorial%20Pics/ControlProperties-1.png)

Obviously, it'll be different in yours, but that should give you an idea.

Thanks for pointing this out. Guess I need to update the guide.

Right, could someone possibly help me?
I heeded the warning of SD loaders not working with PAL versions, but I wanted to try it just in case, because people told me PSA's would not work on PAL but I somehow got mine to work.

I'm gonna try and use a ISO. Will it work with a regular 4.8 GB Single Layer disc? Or does the disc have to be more than however big the Brawl ISO is?

I know about Brawl's Dual-layer needs, so I just want to check.

Post by: AshtrayHeart on August 30, 2010, 09:28:54 AM
I have just one question, it's about submitting songs into the Brawl Vault.

Are there any boundaries to what we can submit? Or can we submit whatever we can?

I ask because 95% of my .brstm files are songs by official bands and whatnot.

I'd like to share them with the community but I want to make sure that it's allowed.

I'm some-what new here also but I've been using hacks for Brawl for quite awhile.
I got the texture hacks down my only concern is how to use the whole Music thing allowing you to hear your own looped music on given areas of the game.

I've followed the instructions doing all my loops in Goldwave (while following that numbered loop rule.) My ONLY problem is that at times when I play brawl with music hacks on the game would freeze and go, ERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR RRRRRRR. Usually it'll freeze right when I click a stage or before we even pick characters. (Usually from the last time I played with texture hacks + music hacks on it would always go ERRRRRRRRRRR with PKMN Trainer.) Is there a way to use the Music Hack function without having the game freeze with the ERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR noise?

If it only freezes when you pick Pokemon Trainer, that implies there's something wrong with one of your Pokemon Trainer textures or your CSPs or something, not the music... I'm pretty sure the game doesn't load the music until you've picked your stage, so unless I'm mistaken, there's no music-related reason for it to freeze before that -- unless there's something wrong with your menu music.

How are you loading your stuff? Riivolution, SD Loader, ISO...?

That's the thing, it only goes ERRRRRR when I enable music hacks.
I use the NTSC Version of brawl and I load my hacks through Gecko.
(Codes are in the gct. format)
I use texture hacks, colored shields, some stage hacks, 8-minute + 3 Stock default settings, a slight arrangement of character boxes in the character selection screen, endless replay recording time with the Nicknames shown, No-restricting camera, and that's about it.

From what I've noticed the game will go ERRRRRRRRRRR when I select certain characters. (Before I click them or after.)
Like now every time I click the default color of Samus the game goes ERRRR>
(I'm using a Master Cheef color hack which makes Samus green and I have both the PCS and the PAC file for all of Samus's colors.)
Then there's times where the game will freeze during the 3-....2--...1... ERRRRRRRRR.
I'm thinking it's a character's fault or something.

My only questions are if the "FitMotion.pacs or the Fit(Name).pacs" might effect the loading of the game. (Most of them are just color swaps for certain character's weapons.)
My last question would be if I only need the "PAC" files for the characters with Transformations? (I've noticed that if I add pac files to other characters I can see the texture hacks outside of Offline Versus. I.E Subspace, Online, and in Multi-man.)
Is this a good idea to do or does it also increase weary-ness to where the likely hood of it going ERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR and freeze up?


Title: Re: Music Guide and FAQ
Post by: Vyse on October 09, 2010, 10:22:50 PM
Does it freeze when you go into My Music?

And pacs are only strictly necessary for transforming characters, but if you'd like to see textures in other modes, you need them for everyone.


Title: Re: Music Guide and FAQ
Post by: BlizzardWolfang on October 09, 2010, 11:52:53 PM
I can play songs in my music without any problem. It's just when I get a match ready it'll go ERRRRRRRRRRRRR and freeze at random.

And I'm sure I made the BRSTMs correctly since I followed your guide to making some.


Title: Re: Music Guide and FAQ

I am using the BCSM GUI v1.5.0.0
All my songs are full, loop is checked. It loops perfectly when I test play the .brstm on the program. The format for the file is WAV PCM signed 16 bit Stereo 32000Hz and 1024 kbps.
Is that too high? ;__; It's really heavy Nintendocore .-.
However, I use the SD card loader, and when it loads the music, it cuts out and starts playing a staticky version of another song instead? :I
I don't really think I should try the backing up and reformatting because I have 60mb free on the SD.

Do it anyway.

I cannot fathom why you would say, "Oh, hey, this exact question's been asked so often that it appears in the FAQ and has a prescribed solution, but surely it doesn't apply to me for reasons I don't understand, so I'm going to ask anyway," but I hope whatever caused it isn't contagious.

I am using the BCSM GUI v1.5.0.0
All my songs are full, loop is checked. It loops perfectly when I test play the .brstm on the program. The format for the file is WAV PCM signed 16 bit Stereo 32000Hz and 1024 kbps.
Is that too high? ;__; It's really heavy Nintendocore .-.
However, I use the SD card loader, and when it loads the music, it cuts out and starts playing a staticky version of another song instead? :I
I don't really think I should try the backing up and reformatting because I have 60mb free on the SD.
Any help is deeply appreciated :3

Clear space off your card, a lot of it, or buy a bigger card. If you're using a 2 GB, throw out what you don't need. Having more free space usually fixes the problem.

Don't go over 2 GB, though; Brawl's not compatible with anything higher.

If he knows about reformatting, he probably knows about defragmenting, since they're always mentioned together, as far as I know... Guess a reminder doesn't hurt.

Edit: Except in my FAQ. How the hell. Oh well, fixed it.

@Haku-men Thanks a bunch :] It definitely got rid of the static and switching songs.

@Vyse Thank you so much, I watched and read your tutorial. I just thought maybe the high quality could've been the problem, but you said something about that not being the problem. I apologize, I was up late doing this. .-.

@segtendo I just had to reformat it, but if it gets full again, I'll try that. :D
 
EDIT: I am using a 2gb, I'm aware of the fact that it sadly can't handle any higher than that ;-;

You said the song was 32khz, so I don't think quality makes any difference. I'm pretty sure the bitrate is irrelevant.

I had this problem before, the only solution i know is to download the brstm/create it again. You can test it in a program that can read brstms like Winamp, to see if it plays all the way through. I hope that helps some.

6. Sometimes, when I use a song with the SD Loader, I hear a lot of static, or the game suddenly switches to another song. What's up with that?
This problem has varying causes. Try defragmenting your SD card. If that doesn't work, make a backup of everything on the SD card, then reformat it. According to Phantom Wings, songs that have a sampling rate higher than 32 kbps can cause this, but I don't think anyone is going to apologize for making songs too high-quality. Songs replaced on the ISO do not have this problem.

When you save the separate Right and Left music files (in an attempt to make your song stereo), are you sure you save it as "PCM signed 16-bit mono", and not "PCM signed 16-bit stereo"? This is for regular songs, not victory music.

It sounds like you're doing this with Androu1's tool. Are you sure you're using the tutorial in this thread? Because you don't need to seperate channels while using the Brawlbox method.

Interesting...

Yeah, I read this tutorial, to the tee. Quote:


--- Creating Your brstm(#brstm)

Get to the folder on your hard drive where you extracted the brstm tool. Double-click Start.bat. Enter A for mono or B for stereo, then enter the name of the brstm in OriginalSongs. It will then tell you to "read the enclosed instruction booklet." Instead, refer to the following paragraph that matches the option you chose.

---- Mono (#mono)

In GoldWave, click File > Save As. Navigate to the root of the music tool. Change the file type to Wave and the attributes to PCM signed 16-bit mono. If you're using the brstm I provided, you will see a file named w23.wav. Save your current song with the same name and click Yes when asked if you want to replace it.

([url]http://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d131/ChronoExplosion/Tutorial%20Pics/th_Mono.png[/url]) ([url]http://s34.photobucket.com/albums/d131/ChronoExplosion/Tutorial%20Pics/Mono.png[/url])

---- Stereo (#stereo)

In GoldWave, press Ctrl+A to make sure you have the whole song selected. Now press Ctrl+Shift+L to select only the left channel. Click File > Save Selection As. Navigate to the root of the music tool. Change the file type to Wave and the attributes to PCM signed 16-bit mono. If you’re using the brstm I provided, you’ll see two files: w23L.wav and w23R.wav. Save the current selection as w23L. Press Ctrl+Shift+R to select the right channel, then click File > Save Selection As and save over w23R.

([url]http://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d131/ChronoExplosion/Tutorial%20Pics/th_StereoChannelSelect.png[/url]) ([url]http://s34.photobucket.com/albums/d131/ChronoExplosion/Tutorial%20Pics/StereoChannelSelect.png[/url]) -> ([url]http://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d131/ChronoExplosion/Tutorial%20Pics/th_StereoSaveLeft.png[/url]) ([url]http://s34.photobucket.com/albums/d131/ChronoExplosion/Tutorial%20Pics/StereoSaveLeft.png[/url]) -> ([url]http://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d131/ChronoExplosion/Tutorial%20Pics/th_StereoSaveRight.png[/url]) ([url]http://s34.photobucket.com/albums/d131/ChronoExplosion/Tutorial%20Pics/StereoSaveRight.png[/url])

Go back to the tool and press Enter. When the tool asks for your starting loop point, enter 0 for a regular loop or paste the number from your second calculator for a custom loop. Give the song a name when prompted, and you’re done! If you want to make sure it came out right, jump to the Testing section.

Hmm.

This might be because part of your file path has a space in it ("Program Files"). Try moving it up, out of Program Files and onto the root of the C drive. (The space in "Local Disk" shouldn't matter, since that's just a name for the drive; the actual path would be C:\BrawlMusicTool)

If that doesn't fix it... are you sure you're using the version of the tool I have in the guide? I've never had any trouble with it.

But I'm pretty sure it's the file path thing.

Curse my inability to follow fine detail!
I'll try that and update on any changes.
Thanks!

EDIT: It worked! I now have a working .brstm with custom loops! Thanks so much for your help!
EDIT EDIT: That first EDIT was before I tested it in BrawlBox. I put it into BrawlBox, and it played W23 (Which I believe was the Multi-Man Melee theme from SSBM) instead of my song. In other words, I failed. AGAIN.

Need help, Plz!

EDIT EDIT EDIT: Never mind I got it. Turns out I was using the mono files from W23.brstm instead of my own because I didn't change the name... *facepalm*

If you're using this version (http://www.mediafire.com/?mmzzwmqimlm) of the tool, it includes a brstm in OriginalSongs called w23.brstm. When you run the tool, you choose mono or stereo, then it asks you for a base file. You enter w23 there. The tool then creates two wav files, called w23L and w23R, in the root of the tool's folder (where Start. bat is). When you're saving the channels, if you change the file type to wav and navigate to that folder, you'll see those two wavs.

Okay, so I've already uploaded two songs to the Brawl Vault, and I've created several others for my own personal version, so obviously this has worked for me before...however, now when I try to create new songs, outside of one song which DID work (a mono Venture Brothers song) I am having problems converting the song to brstm using GoldWave. 

I'm not sure exactly what the problem is, so let me try and explain what I am experiencing:

First off, whenever I try and save the the left and right parts of the song (you know the ctrl + shift L or R part) after I am done overriding the L part of the file over W23L, it goes an highlights both sections.  This use to never happen.  Next when I am done making the file and try and test it in BrawlBox it says something about messing with volume external something, I don't remember the exact details, either way, it is just not working.  Can anyone give me any insight into my problem, or are more details required?

Those were the two that I "fixed" and apparently it doesn't work.  D:

Info_en.pac controls the music titles at the start of a match. Mu_menumain_en.pac contains the song titles on the My Music screen.

If you're sure you edited info_en and the title at the start of the match hasn't changed, then you have some other problem. But it's been so long since I touched Brawl modding that I couldn't begin to guess what that problem is.

Yup.  Those two (info.pac & mu_menumain.pac) are definitely the ones I've changed.  I know I read somewhere that the two originally have *_en in the end and in order for it to work, you gotta erase that part.

On another note: I tried running my mods in Gecko (as opposed to Riivolution) and the changes worked.  I have a feeling it's something to do with Riivolution interfering with some kind of coding or files need to be moved in the right places.

So now, I'm revisiting this same problem.  Apparently, it isn't Riivolution interfering.  I just added a few more songs and now it half works.

Originally, I changed the Airship song in Luigi's Mansion (now Dracula's Castle) for Wicked Six (from Sixto Sounds of OCRemix.org) and Theme of Tara in Shadow Moses for Heavens Divide (from MGS Peace Walker) and those two worked fine in Gecko.  After that, the info_training.pac file wouldn't cooperate for the new songs I added.  Quite frankly, I'm at a (http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/newsfeed/000/143/193/cad-20080602-358b1.jpg?1309710446) with what to do.

EDIT:

Never mind....  I found the problem....  r)

I've added two new music files to bf but when they loop they stop for like 1 second. But the loop is normal and on any other song in brawl too. Does anyone know that problem and how to fix it?
