I can't get wav2msu working on windows 10

Post by MiniComputer on Wed 20 Dec 2017 - 9:44

As the title states I have been having problems getting this to excute in windows 10 media creator edition.

Does someone know how to get this to open in cmd or does it not work with windows 10 at all ?

Works fine for me on Windows 10. Don't forget that it's command line only, there's no GUI. I have a batch file that'll directly convert any files from wav to pcm without loops if you're stuck, for the meantime.

Cool beans with all due respect I have no idea how to get that to excute or run.
If you don't mind please explain some to get it working,

Thanks

@rellek I understand that, but the cmd opens up and closes quickly without exporting anything.

Please explain to me how to get it open up, I have a .wav file ready from audacity.
I'm doing this mainly because the super metroid msu1 symphony hack does not sound good at all.
Since I have am2r .ogg with a bit of editing and converting to .wav.
Some of the songs from it would do much better.

You have to open a command prompt and navigate to the folder where the wav2msu exe is located. Once you're there the command to convert your wav is:

wav2msu file.wav

"File" is the name of whatever wav you're converting. So, example: if your file is called metroid.wav then you use that instead.

As stated, it is a command line tool. You don't open it. You execute it.

You can build a bat file (save a notepad text as .bat) with one of the following arguments if using the vanilla build:

Code:
wav2msu *.wav
wav2msu *.wav "custom-name".pcm
wav2msu *.wav -l 0x123456 (Hex sample loop point)
wav2msu *.wav -l 123456 (44khz sample loop point)

Remember to put the .bat file in the same folder as wav2msu.exe

Additionaly, it's pointless to convert the .ogg files to .wav, since the tool has support for the Vorbis container, though if you edited them, it makes sense to be .wav to avoid double lossy compression.

Sorry but most of what you said still doesn't work for some odd reason.
However though I dragged the .wav into wav2msu.
mediafire.com file/1jpn55i16nb5m0v/musArea2A.pcm
It dropped the .pcm as expected, audacity reads it fine.
None the less thank you both for helping.

It's simpler than it sounds. Basic tutorial would be...

- Have a WAV file of the track (or tracks) you want to use
- Put that WAV file inside the folder that contains the wav2msu.exe file
- Open a command prompt and navigate to folder that contains the wav2msu.exe file
- Type in (without the quotations) "wav2msu nameofyourwavfile.wav"
- The result of that will give you a .pcm file with the same name as your WAV file

And that's it, really. You can now use that .pcm file in an MSU1 hack (provided it's named and numbered correctly for the hack you're playing).

Alternatively, if you're not specifying loop points (which you probably should, but that might be more complex than you're wanting to do), you can just drag-and-drop a single .wav file onto wav2msu and it should work, as you discovered. The reason for this is that when you drag-and-drop a file onto a .exe, Windows interprets that the same as running the .exe with the file you dropped as a command-line argument, e.g. if you drop mysong.wav onto wav2msu.exe, that's the same as running "wav2msu.exe mysong.wav" which is why it works. However, if you do want to specify loop points, you're going to have to do that from the command line like this: "wav2msu.exe mysong.wav -l 12345" (where 12345 should be replaced with your loop point, specified as a sample number).

Wav2msu still fails to do anything. Maybe Windows 10 does not support these things?

You just need to learn some basic console handling to work with it. I used wav2msu on Win10 FCA and there NO problem at all. This is a console executable and no GUI toy. Just google for "howto Windows command line" or "howto Windows console" and you are set.

Wrong emuandco either explain it clearly or don't bother. Sob
@ troyda download this first.
https://www.audacityteam.org/
Then this for quick audio conversion
https://www.freac.org/
Say you have super mario brothers level 1.mp3.
Click file import audio, navigate to my music folder which is where you want it to began with and choose that file.
Next play it to make sure it sounds fine, then you look down at the bottom of the screen.
Change the project audio rate to 44100, someone at metroid construction mentioned how to do this.

Now you click on export.wav, and click save.
Now find your smb1.wav, right click copy, move it to a folder with wav2msu.exe.
Now copy that file again, find wav2msu, right click then paste it into the program.

If nothing is wrong with the .wav file it will dump it as so.
Now for assigning the .pcm to the music tracks someome else will need to help you.
Here is something to look at as an example.

@minicomputer I followed the instructions and nothing still came out. It seems to be that rather I cant run .exe in general. Rn I am using a surface pro 3 but ill try it out on another Windows 10 computer to see if its just something to do with the computer

What is happening exactly when you're trying to "run .exe"?

@minicomputer Well if I click on it it show a small command window for less than e second and close, the command prompt will usually say something along the lines of invalid code or section. I ve also tried Vdos and couldnt get this thing to work. Maybe Im that dumb?

Ok, just try this for the time being...

https://1drv.ms/u/s!Ahue7izQZmouim0ow-4dKzHkeXSW

Download that. It's a batch file that'll convert any WAV files you have with wav2msu. Extract the .bat file from the zip, put the .bat file and any WAV files into the same folder as your wav2msu.exe. Then run the .bat file. It should convert the WAV files into PCM files.

No need to double click on the program just highlight your wav file.
Drag it over to wav2msu and drop it in, like I mentioned earlier in my post.
If you do it like that 9 times out of 10 it will work, also works fine with w10 so don't sweat it.
Just a heads uo don't play that wave file while dropping it into wav2msu.
I know it sounds weird but programs needed exclusive rights to files while in use with programs especially cmd.

Also, try right-clicking on the .exe and going to properties. If there is a button or checkbox that says "Unblock" you need to click that and then hit Ok.
