    Hello,

    I almost finished an old project, DSDaft. This is an homebrew like iDaft.
    As I don't want to work on it anymore (it's an old thing for me), I just cleaned the sourcecode. It's working (only one song, Harder Better Stronger), but there isn't the background music.

    So, instead of releasing it in an incomplete state, I'm looking for another developper (the project is coded with the NFLib) to add the background music. The music file is already in, I just need someone to write the code :D I tried a few months ago with MaxMod but I failed...
    If you want to help me, please PM me :D I will give you some details. You can also submit a PR on my Github : https://github.com/corenting/DSDaft

    If You have the music in tracker format, it requires 3 small lines of code to go, if You have other format, it will go diffrent way...

    It's .raw files played with NFlib functions so no tracker format.
    LeRodeur started a private conversation with me to help me but if you want to help too PM me :D

    Thanks ! It will just be "Harder Better Stronger" but with high and low pitch and background music, like on the iPhone :D

    And if somebody know how to add MaxMod streaming, PM me because I don't have a lot of free time... So I don't think I will be able to implement it until February :(

    Streaming? You mean reading from FAT file and without loading file, streaming it part by part?
    I will try to check it out in some free time, tough as I know that grey life, someone will find it out before me

    You could also add the instrumental version of Kanye West's song "Stronger" (as the normal version is crap). It would only require slower/lower pitched "Harder Better Faster Stronger" vocals, but you'd have to do extensive work on the actual instrumental to take out the "Harder Better Faster Stronger" in the back.

    Sorry, I will not add any songs now. Maybe later, but I'm trying first to finish the homebrew with one song.

    It's in .raw (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raw_audio_format).

    Gods it would kill DS literally...there is one not written rule
    NO MP3 for Background music in projects...just no
    SFX is semi-ok cuz still better and less CPU hunger is WAV with MaxMod (or RAW)

    Yes and no.
    For those kind of projects mp3 would be fine with aslib, the only problem (and i never faced it) is the instability of the aslib arm7 build, but its not that cpu consuming

    One more thing, some flashcards can't make sound from ASLib (unless fixed)
    True is that ARM7 will make it less CPU consuming but still...RAW or WAV or Tracker would go better, tough I'm not sure how Tracker music would have to fit with such thing so RAW and WAV as my vote

    As for streaming I can't recall proper way, You would have to check FATLib documentation, I never did streaming...unless...maybe "that" project of Player which I did with help of friend...maybe it had streaming code...I will check it later

    I was thinking if it was mp3 ( ogg would be fine too which takes up less RAM ) we could play the BG music from our flashcard.

    Could be done with ogg, I remember someone doing streaming with ogg using the fixed point version of ogg lib and maxmod, though I think corenting hasn't got the level to do it by himself yet
