Post questions, update or whatever about msu-1, where you don't think it's worth to open an own topic

I moved Joe and Mac to the database (apparently finished)
https://www.zeldix.net/t1467-joe-and-mac
(Kurrono, please give some instructions on how to use (headered or non headered US version?)), also a bml in missing in your post (but I don't think this is necessary, I guess higan maybe gets outdated with the more user-friendly snes9x 1.55 for msu1 playing).
However, please edit your first post there with some instructions on which rom to use the ips (header, country).

I also moved PittStone Hyper Street Kart in the Data Base
https://www.zeldix.net/t1459-hyper-street-kart-msu-1
Since it is apparently finished as well.

That's really great we got so many new msu1 hacks in the last month Very Happy

bszelda.zeldalegends.net is back online, and with it all patch download links work again.

It was a network problem and a reboot was necessary.

There have been some issues with linking to the pcm files directly at youtube, it happened to castlevania and MegaMan X3 that the links to the google drive cloud was posted in the comments, and Kurrono got a DMCA.

The reason is that youtube is allowed to let people watch the videos online, but not let the content download for private use. E.g., some youtube-mp3 sites recently had to close.
My best guess is that an algorithm continuing checking the comments, and if a cloud link is present, automatically a DMCA is activated - which probably is in most cases right since the rom or full album to download is linked or something. However, our pcm files are also affected by this algorithm, so please only post the link to zeldix, but not the direct  cloud link.

I was checking the last game on my list that I consider a must have msu1: Illusion of Gaia.

The implementation of msu1 here is not that easy as in other games but possible, because the tracks are loaded by pointers only (I think each track has an own "music bank"), but I think I can do it with a room table; means make a room table in the patch with the track values that should be there played with msu1.

I have 3 opened projects right now (sma, dkc3, dc), and would start with an implementation when 2 are finished. With all the maintainance and bug fixing, it's not a good idea to have more than 3 projects parallel.
But: to implement it, I'd need some assistance from somebody who "desperately" wants this msu1 implementation. Means: playtesting, making the pcm:s and such... anybody out there?

Did any of you try to "tackle" Tales of Phantasia or Star Ocean for ms1 audio? Since both have a remastered on ps1 and psp.

I was checking ToP and SO and must admit, they are not my type of games, and hacking msu requires much playtesting. So sorry I won't be able to help you on these. When it comes to RPG I prefer the direct battle system and not round based.

As for Illusion of Gaia, I am half way through with the code (found a way to mute and hook in the room routine, added a room index to play room-specific tracks, also I was able to map the themes that way).
Problem is that in some cases in the same room another music starts event-based, means I guess I will have to play the game from beginning to end - what sucks!
Ah well, there's no time rush, but this game really is tricky to msu it. I guess I am busy with it the next weeks.

But we all have our projects, Pev is currently hacking another shoot em up, I burdened Kurrono with my projects to make pcm:s (I have little skills only when it comes to pcm:s), so for now I think there is little hope that wishes by third party are fulfilled (like these ToP, SO and I also got one request for Sim City).

Ok I am through with the code for Illusion of Gaia, all works Very Happy
The code was very sophisticated, and hard to implement (also for me).

Only thing I have to do is playing through the game and map the events. I think I will release it in a couple of days. If anybody is interested to create the pcm:s here's the theme list:

; $2D 29 Wind                       n   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=72EChRq--d0


So just take the dec value, e.g. pyramid is hex $11, dec 17, so your pcm should be:
iog_msu1-17.pcm

There are a some remastered tracks on youtube:

.... I hope awesome epic themes to substitute all are found.
