This is a patch for Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver versions that disables the background music (BGM) while retaining all other sounds. I admit it's not that exciting but if you're recording for a video that you want to add your own music to or if you just don't like the music it can come in handy. Apply the correct patch for your version to a clean ROM using xdelta3.

It's quite possible that sounds that might not really be background music were not labeled accurately and got removed. On the same note, background music files that were not labeled like the ones I removed may have evaded my efforts. My quick testing has not yielded any glaring issues, but if you find any report them here. Known "Issues": -The music that normally plays upon entering a battle is gone, quite conspicuously. I believe that since this leads directly into the regular battle BGM it is part of the same file and cannot feasibly be enabled. -Background music plays during certain critical meetings with NPCs. This music is obviously labeled different from the other BGM but I've yet to find it. Thanks go out to kiwi.ds for making the tool that made this a lot easier (NDS Editor) and Lasivian for a gracious donation that made this even more worthwhile for me.
