(edit)
thanks to DarkShock for the fast reply on PM's Very Happy

battle not playing is intentional due to no Resume Support for the MSU-1 right now, once it's there it'll be implemented

DarkShock wrote:Yes because when you leave battle with MSU-1 music it would restart the dungeon from the beginning. And you go in battle a lot during a dungeon !

Once MSU-1 Resume is available everywhere, it won't be an issue anymore Smile

@ kurrono

I just saw your youtube video and wanted to ask how did you get the video and music patches to work together? Do you apply them in a particular order? I've been looking for a step by step install guide on using both patches in combination but haven't been able to find anything...

Hi Con(n)!

Stumbled across a recent YouTube video where they constantly kept mentioning your name, reminding me of how you told me off for no reason more than a year ago ... which really, honestly, pissed me off.

So I thought, why not come back here and put a few things straight. Very Happy

Conn wrote:Hi and welcome to these forums.
Thanks. Wouldn't ever have come here, weren't it for your touting this place as kind of well-known, where "MSU-1 hackers" (your words, not mine) could share their knowledge. Turned out quickly enough that it wasn't. Very Happy

Conn wrote:I know of only 5 msu1 hackers, that would be you, Mattrizzle, DS, LuigiBlood and me.
Count me out, as I'm not an "MSU-1 hacker." I'm an SNES developer. Very Happy

For the record, all I did -- which, for whatever reason, drew your a priori hostile attention -- was to update an existing hack that had been around since at least 2010.

Conn wrote:It would be in any case reasonable for anybody to check whether a patch already is released (DS and I usually release on romhacking.net, here and on git). Also google and youtube search may help.
Funny how you obviously failed to do exactly what you're suggesting here (i.e., by not acknowledging smkdan's hack in the first place) ... Very Happy

Not sure if anyone remembers the Chrono Ressurrection project, but a number of years ago a group of individuals tried to remake CT, but got a Cease & Desist letter from Square Enix.

Anyway, they (a guy by the name of TSSF) produced the most amazing (IMO) soundtrack for CT!

Is anyone out there willing to snip these tracks for the proper loops and convert to PCM for compatibility with this patch? I would, but I don't have the experience with such things...

Here is the link to the MP3 soundtrack:

I was wondering if someone could help me out with creating the PCM files for Chrono Trigger MSU1...

At first when I clicked on "make_music_pack.bat", I got the zlib1.dll is missing error.  So I downloaded that file and put in the folder.

Then I got the inflatereset2 could not be located error.  So I downloaded SOX and put it in the folder with my Chrono Trigger Symphony Vol 1, Vol 2, and Vol 3 (FLAC).

Now when I click on "make_music_pack.bat" it creates all the chrono_x_xx.wav and chrono_x_xx.raw.wav files, then the command prompt puts up a bunch of text at lightning speed and closes.  No PCM files are made.

I've hit a wall as to what I should do next, so any help would be appreciated!

Try my new script here and scroll to the bottom for a github link to grab a slightly newer bat/cfg. Should be a little easier to work with, just make sure the files are in the right place and run the one script.

Qwertymodo ~

Thank you for the reply.
So I downloaded the new bat/cfg off github from the other thread.

In a new folder, I have all 3 symphony folders (in flac format)
- Chrono Trigger Symphony Vol 1 (FLAC)
- Chrono Trigger Symphony Vol 2 (FLAC)
- Chrono Trigger Symphony Vol 3 (FLAC)

I extracted the contents of the Chrono Trigger MSU1.zip (from github) into the same folder that has the above symphony folders.

I downloaded bass, sox, and normalize-audio from the links at the bottom of the read me in the Chrono Trigger MSU1.zip, as well as the wav2msu.exe from another site, and put all the files in the same folder as the Chrono Trigger MSU1.zip and the symphony folders.

I clicked on the convert_tracks.bat, and a command window comes up.  Again, the text goes at light speed, so I can't read anything, but I see what looks to be "cannot find path specified" or something along those lines.  Again, no pcm files are created.

I even tried this on a different computer, just to make sure nothing funny was going on, and the same issue occurred.  

Is there some other program not included in the zip files I need to be downloading?  I don't understand what I'm doing wrong, because I seem to be following the directions.

You shouldn't have downloaded a zip from github.  Github just has the latest version of the .bat and .cfg.  The zip is in the first post in that thread.  When you extract it, you should have the 3 empty music folders and a "bin" folder which contains the 3 applications.  Or, if you've already downloaded the applications separately, put them and all of the various files that came with them in a folder named bin.

Another tip for troubleshooting batch scripts that disappear too soon, instead of double-clicking on it, go up to the path bar at the top of the window and type cmd.exe and hit enter, it should open a new command prompt window in the current directory.  Then you can just type the name of the bat script and hit enter and it will execute without closing the window afterwards.

The link in the other thread in the first post sent me to a page that said "unspecified share exception" without any links to download anything.

I downloaded the zip at: https://github.com/qwertymodo/ChronoTrigger-MSU1 that included: LavosScream.wav; README.txt; chrono_msu1.xml; chrono_msu1_music.asm; chrono_notes.txt; convert_tracks.bat; epoch_ending_timings.txt; fade_100ad_map_transition_lower_volume.txt; manifest.bml; and tracks.cfg

Are you saying the only file I need of the above is the "convert_tracks.bat"?

And what are the 3 applications that go in the "bin" folder (bassv14? SOX? normalize-audio? wav2msu?) (and why does the README.txt not tell me to do that?)

Ok, I'll back up a bit and start from the beginning.  The reason the README doesn't have the righte instructions is because I cloned DarkShock's original repo and completely replaced his script with my own, and I have not fully updated all of the documentation to reflect this, and I apologize for that.  I'm working on it.  Also, it looks like the link to my zip is broken, so I need to look into that...

Probably the easiest thing to do is start from scratch and delete everything except for the flac files.  No zip file this time, that was from the old script. Now, all you should have is 3 folders of flac files.  Create another folder called bin, so now you have 4 folders all in the same place.  Now, download convert_tracks.bat and tracks.cfg to that same folder.  Finally, inside the bin folder, download and extract

-sox: https://sourceforge.net/projects/sox/files/sox/14.4.2/
-normalize: http://normalize.nongnu.org/
-wav2msu: http://helmet.kafuka.org/thepile/Wav2msu

Now you should have this:
Code:
/
-bin/
--sox.exe (and all of the other sox files)
--normalize.exe
--wav2msu.exe
-Chrono Trigger Symphony Vol 1 (FLAC)/
--{flac files}
-Chrono Trigger Symphony Vol 2 (FLAC)/
--{flac files}
-Chrono Trigger Symphony Vol 3 (FLAC)/
--{flac files}
-convert_tracks.bat
-tracks.cfg

Now, run convert_tracks.bat, and it should create a new folder named output and generate your pcm files there

So I'm pretty sure I followed all your directions...
Have a folder named 'chrono trigger' with the 3 symphony folders in FLAC format.
Made a new 'bin' folder in the 'chrono trigger folder. Downloaded convert_tracks.bat and tracks.cfg to the 'chrono trigger' folder.
I downloaded sox 14.4.2, installed the program, and put the contents of sox directly in the 'bin' folder.
I downloaded normalize-0.7.7-win32.zip and put normalize.exe in the 'bin' folder.
I downloaded wav2msu.rar and put wav2msu.exe in the 'bin' folder.

I then clicked on convert_tracks.bat, a command prompt pops up for a split second and disappears. No 'output' folder was created. No pcm files were created.

I attached pictures of what exactly is in all my files, if that helps.

Can you edit the batch script (right click> edit) and add a new line at the end that just says PAUSE then run it again. It should keep the window open so you can see what error is being reported. Everything looks right, so I'm curious to see what it's saying.

I right-clicked on the bat file and clicking on edit opened it up in Windows Notepad.  I wrote PAUSE at the end of all the mumbo jumbo, which didn't do anything.  Also put it on a new line after all the text, which didn't work either.
Do I need to put PAUSE in a specific spot?

That's strange. It works in any case, here's a pic from another bat I use.
Foreground the bat in notepad
Background the executed program where it waits for a keypress after executing pause.

Easiest explanation: you didn't save after the modification or run the wrong file.

No, I saved it, although I don't think I'm putting 'pause' in the correct spot.
