    Looping Audio Converter 1.3.3** (NOTE: this is the best version of the converter to use, you need to use the brawl lib plugin to successfully convert mp3 to bcstm) in case the copypaste link didnt work click it above the brawl thing is in the looper

    Thank you very much, but then i think i did everything right...

    In LAC i just chose BCSTM from the dropdown menu, checked "put all channels in one file" and it converted it into a bcstm file (1,7MB).
    Then i loaded a theme von themeplaza into the 3ds Theme Editor, changed the music (it played and looped), saved it as a new theme, zip'd it, moved it to the SD and tried to load it with Anemone.

    But neither the full theme or just the BGM don't work...

    Music is always the hardest part. Make sure that you used the correct version of the converter and double check my screenshots, it shows you where to high lite for brawllib. Get rid of the .ogg file.

    I was making a theme and make my own bgm file, but it doesn't for some reason work. I tried everything. YES, I made sure it was under 3.3mb YES, I Made Sure to use the right codec (ADPCM), And It STILL DOESN'T PLAY When the theme is loaded... Is there something I'm Doing Wrong?

    Can doing this get your 3DS or account banned? Or can it damage the system or software?

    could you not just use something like ms paint to resize images, gimp doesn't really matter too much right?

    Thanks for the guide, awesome writeup!

    Is it possible to make an Anemone theme with an intro to the BGM music before it starts to loop, or can you only have one looping section?

    Being more specific, I whipped together a theme based on the old Sega CD "no disc" screen, and while I've got the music looped more or less perfectly it just feels like it's missing something without the rad intro bit.

    I'm encountering this same issue and I've tried a couple different means of encoding monaural audio. Is it possible to get a mono track of emanate from both speakers?

    yes, if you have the custom theme installed, first uninstall the theme with anemone, than delete the custom theme files.

    So I've tried to make a theme but when I install it in the 3ds, after powering off and on the default theme comes up. the bgm is 2.692kb, so fairly under 3.3mb. I'll try to upload the file here if it's easier for you to take a look.

    Yup nevermind. The previous versions of the theme had an option enabled, I believe it was the sound effects, but since my theme don't add any my guess is it was looking for said sound effects but when it didn't saw them it crashed.
    I hadn't time to test the latest until now.
    but since I'm at it, how to I add sound effects?

    Paint resizing does approximation rather than bicubic/bilinear scaling as gimp does. You can use paint but it will not look good on a small screen like the 3DS's. You can use any image editing software really, as long as it has a resize function; then again gimp is free and open-source so it's more than enough.

    While I'm at it, the exact byte size limit for bgm rounds exactly to 3292 KB. If your bgm size is equal or higher to 3292 KB, it will not work properly
