Set and tracklist updated using the same link, just rename the title to V2, okay? I also found something very interesting, I decided to apply the patch on a normal FFII US rom (without expanding it to 1.5MB) and apparently it's working normally, does it have anything to do with the new fixes?

ok, added v2.

That was my fault, I patched against a 1MB rom, so it automatically expanded the rom to 1.5 MB. In the new patch package, I included 2 versions
- one for the original 1 MB
- one if a translation patch is preapplied that expands the rom to 1.5 MB

Redownload from first post (still says v3 since the code didn't change)

In the new PCM pack for Kurrono, there is a file ff2a_msu1-229. Does this need relabled to replace ff2j_msu1-229?

Oops, it was another mistake of mine, it's actually ffj2_msu1-229, I just updated this set correcting the name and adding the ff2j_msu1-230, please rename it to V2 too.

Thanks for the report. Wink

Are you sure? It still says ff2a when using this link:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1e2-gsqQyLjXs4A2-3sii3qciZUJTLvae/view?usp=sharing

also some tracks have a capital "J" while others have a small "j"

I hesitated because the files are not the same size.

Sorry, I just fixed this too now, try downloading it again and see if you get the file 'new pcm V2.zip' (the previous one was 7z).

Thank you again.

Now it works, except the name "new pcm.7z.zip" is a bit strange. But don't bother to fix, it works flawless and I guess you will release a complete K set anyways in a time Wink

If I tell you that I'm not very satisfied with my set yet do you believe it?

Post on Sun 20 Oct 2019 - 4:55 by Conn

I don't believe it since I listened into your set and for my ears it is perfect Very Happy but I remember you wanted to have themes that are redundant (e.g., battle2 is used by multiple track id:s), given a different theme.
I'd also hope that it is possible to fix K's set soon so we can close this chapter for good Wink

It was finally done, but it's not the final version. In addition to normalizing the sound volume, I have edited the tracks in such a way that most of the time you will not know when the music ends and restarts, other times it was not possible I decrease the 'fade out / fade in' range as much as possible. Finally working with the Kurrono set I discovered a few more little mistakes on my own, so later I will release a separate mini update.

Thanks. Razz (Conn)

Thanks for the update, I will put it into first post, if you can tell me how, is it still necessary to have 2 links (one your fixes, one K's original), or can we just put your v2 as Kurrono set as a single link?

You don't need the fix anymore, it's all in the pack. So single link.

I hope that there's a Final Fantasy IV DS Remake PCM set.

There will probably be a set by Mathew Valente, once edale has time for it (he is quite busy with FF5 at the moment).

...but no other plans yet. If you like you can try to make this set yourself Wink

I started putting together a version using Mathews "Synthetic Origins" set, got all the trim and loop points noted down.

Was gonna test it with one of the tracks but can't put together the files needed from getting constant "parse error" issues in msupcm, even though it fully matches what I saw in qwertymodo's tutorial, so I'm stuck (I'm hopeless with this stuff).

I could give the text file with the trim/loop points if anyone was interested in continuing.

That's awesome you want to make this set happen. I was in contact with Mathew and promised him to find somebody to pcm his set.

Usually parse errors are due to invalid syntax, clamps too few, many or such things. I guess you use a json file. Could you send some of your work so we can maybe check the code?

Post on Fri 7 Feb 2020 - 7:18 by Brett_d92

Yeah, the Synthetic Origins set is the only one that feels most authentic to me, was willing to try it out for myself if I could do it.

I did make a json on one of the songs just as a test, though from what I saw, even just launching msupcm on its own via CMD was coming up with the parse error too, no idea why, might have been the way I had the json named, had one named ff4 and tracks.

Here's the files I have, the test json changed to txt so it could attach as well as the list with sync/trim for each track (got two for Red Wings cause I have no idea how the loop point works for that, with how the track plays later on in the game without the start bit, made a loop section for when it starts at those points in the game.)

Two syntax errors I found:

   "artist": "Mathew Valente"
is missing a comma

           "trim_end": 5392567

is missing a comma too

{
   "$schema:": "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/qwertymodo/msupcmplusplus/master/configs/schema#",
   "game": "Final Fantasy IV",
   "pack": "Final Fantasy IV Synthetic Origins",
   "artist": "Mathew Valente",
   "normalization": -21,
   "output_prefix": "ff2j_msu",

for comparison you here's the json from chrono trigger:[/color]

Oof, that was it, compared it with your Chrono one, funny how I missed that when I was looking at his tutorial many times on it (not a good idea to try it at around 1am Very Happy ). Tried it out on that track and came out this time. Thanks for that.

Also, would the normalization matter much for this? Not sure what to have them set to.

Glad it is resolved Very Happy when programming you must be as pedantic as possible with syntax...

The normalization is the decrease of the volume (in decible). You need to try out if you need that reduction of -21db is necessary through playing FF4. If the volume level is too loud, they'll cover the sound effects (SFX). Then you definitely need the normalization.

Post on Fri 7 Feb 2020 - 14:07 by Brett_d92

Yep. I knew what normalization was, just not for what the tracks had in the previous set darthvaderx put up. Though I think -21 was quite low when I tried it out in the game, will have to lower it a bit.

Post on Fri 7 Feb 2020 - 14:17 by Conn

It's a logarithmic scale so low decrease can have high impact. Usually, if -21 is too low, -18 is the value to use... but this can also vary from track to track... so there may be some which need -21, others -18, others maybe none at all.

Post on Fri 7 Feb 2020 - 14:26 by Brett_d92

Tried -18 before and it sounded good to me, that should be fine now. I should have something up today hopefully.

Just discovered I had a complete save from many years ago at the last dungeon, that solves my Red Wings loop question. Looks like the previous pack had it set to play from the beginning at that point in the game. Gonna fix that too.
