 - if your rom size is 1.5 mb apply ff2_msu1_1.5MB.ips

There's also another thing, if you download the patch:
http://bszelda.zeldalegends.net/stuff/Con/ff2j_msu1.zip

and open "final tracklist.txt", you notice that e.g. battle theme 2 is occuring around 11 times (others may also be double). You need to have them so many times unfortunately (copy/paste/rename). It's approximately enlarging the size of your pack for about 300 MB (+8% maybe), but that's better to have them redundant than me to code it and playtest all over and over again...

I noticed Very Happy That's where Kurrono's set helped more where they were all the same size. Just gonna do the same and make duplicates also.

Just hope the unheadered rom I patched is fine, 1st time dealing with it. Works no problem in Snes9x (says bad checksum but when I attempted to fix that, the game crashed on the 1st battle while the bad checksum rom was fine) in but haven't tried it on my SD2SNES cart, was gonna save that till after I finished this.

checksum hasn't any influence actually, at least none I heard about. Which rom version, translation, additional patches do you use?

Did you use this tool to repair the checksum?
https://www.romhacking.net/utilities/499/

I ask because some (translation) patches simply enlarge the game by 0.5 MB without correcting the ingame header (0x7fd7, in this case from 0a -> 0b). If the checksum remains corrupt, snes9x may take it, but sometimes it happens that addresses in the expanded area are not taken.

You can also send me the corrupt rom to con.s@gmx.de and I check it if it crashes for me as well.

No, didn't try that one, but that worked, didn't crash on 1st battle this time. Was using a USA v1.0 rom.

I've compiled all the tracks into it now and so far, it's looking good, few I can't test (Cecil becoming a paladin) as I don't have a save in that area.

Ok, no idea what was wrong, but good it seems to be resolved. Here are some savestates you may use to quickscheck stuff:

(copy the srm, rename it and store it in saves folder)

Tried that before, no luck, they didn't have that many really, but I did find one around the same area on Zophar. The tracks with loops seem to be fine, mainly just double checking that the non-loop ones don't have to be padded. The Inn/Tent theme needed to be padded at the end. Should be able to upload it after that.

If it's just about testing tracks you simply can rename your track, e.g. rename the to test track x into ff2j_msu1-176.pcm, and you hear that theme in the beginning baron castle. So no need to play all way to the specificx place.

Much thanks, I added it to first post Very Happy

I am not sure however whether a -21 normalization had been the better choice, I only briefly tested the first track where you can get into the menu in byron castle at the beginning) (ff2j_msu1-40.pcm   Suspicion) and inside the menu, when selecting stuff, I hardly can hear the SFX...

In the direct comparison (msu vs spc), the spc appears also more silent for this track. Can't tell about the other tracks though

Thanks for that. Smile

Didn't try -21 for that track, only for Red Wings which sounded a tad too low for me. Do you want me to send that track at -21?

I am still in the project to optimize my set (reduce the size, vary the redundant tracks, etc.), but I am simply not having time for this, I hope that by the middle of the year things will normalize.

I only tested this particular theme 40 and found it a bit too loud in comparison to sfx, if you also have this opinion you may want to check (all?) others as well.

However, this is a matter of taste, I prefer music as bgm with clear sfx... Other people may think different. Just do as you like. In any case, thanks so much for your set Wink

@darthvaderx: I hope and wish all the best that things normalize for you!

If it's nothing major, I'll let it go. Got burnt out over the game OST over the last 2 days doing it. Very Happy

Just a note regarding my Free Enterprise set: There isn't a single track from FF4 in this soundtrack, or any Final Fantasy game, for that matter.

It was a pet project to get a custom soundtrack going, and I wound up scraping tracks from as many games as I could think of. I'll probably put out a revised edition later this year once I sit down with more OSTs and ASTs.

Hi guys. Did you think it would be possible to add some FMV in FFIV in MSU-1? It's just to give an idea.
