Do you prefer the original music or the ORAS remastered?

    Hey people, I posted this quite a while ago on Reddit on /r/3dshacks and /r/pokemonromhacks but it didn't seem to get too much attention there, so I thought you guys might like it!

    Relive the good-old days of the GBA in the Hoenn region with all (if not most) of the original Hoenn Music!

    Installation Instructions:

    Using Gateway or other methods:
    I do not have a gateway, but if you can find directions for another romhack on gateway, follow those instructions, but instead replacing only the files mentioned below.

    Using HANS:

    Step 0: The Basics

    First you must have your game's .romfs file or a way to get it, as well as a way to extract and recompile the file like the PackHack romfs Extractor. You also obviously have to have a way to play romhacks in the first place.

    Step 1: Extract your .romfs

    Once the file has been extracted, you will find a folder titled "romfs_" This will be the folder you put the download into.

    Step 2: Copy-Pasta

    Copy and paste the "sounds" folder from the download .rar into the romfs_ folder. It should ask if you want to replace the files in the destination, click yes.

    Step 3: Recompile

    Using a romfs builder program, recompile your folder back into a new .bin file named "romfs.bin"

    Step 4 (Only if not using latest version of HANS): Delete the first 0x1000 bytes

    If you are using a non-up-to-date version of Smealum's HANS, using a bin editor, delete the first 0x1000 bytes of data in the file. Save it and close the bin editor.

    Step 5: Renaming

    Rename the file from "romfs.bin" to *.romfs where * is your game's ID according to HANS.

    Step 6: Put it where it needs to go

    Place the file in the \hans\ folder on the root of your SD card. If it is not there, make it and put it there.

    Step 7: Open Homebrew and HANS to see the magic work

    Open up HANS and select the read romfs option. If everything goes well, enjoy your game with the classic GBA music once more!

    Download: http://www.mediafire.com/download/9618ghs63ew7j77/sound.rar

    Also, very sorry if this is not visually appealing like other romhacks, I just don't have any images of the game to upload and even if I did, it's kinda just a sound mod so images wouldn't really help much XD. Anyways, I hope you guys enjoy it.

    Hello. I'm unsure if you'll have a reply, but I am having problems installing the music.
    I followed every step above, but for whatever reason, when I try to use custom music in a hack with HANS, HANS will crash.
    I haven't been able to find a solution. Do you know why this may occur? Thanks. : )

    EDIT: I figured it out. Just had to redump my rom.

    Nice, thanks to you i find the way to change song. I didn't know it was that easy and with layeredFS plugin, rebuild rom is even not needed :)
    Edit : I can't find the towns/cities themes, do you know how they are named in the sound folder ?

    I believe they are named bgm_sg_t_(number of song) in the sound folder.

    No it is not, I took the files from brawlcustommusic.com and converted them to the right files and file names to be used in ORAS. What is in your sound pack that you're talking about?

    He's probably talking about https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-pokémon-gbalpha-sapphire.390765/
    Which I thought was a nice idea until I read all the things that it changes in the game which kind of ruined it for me, so your mod is perfect. I know at least one person who wanted something like this but he was also turned off by the extensive changes in GBAlpha Sapphire when I linked it to him.

    Can this be combined with Rutile Ruby and Star Sapphire?

    I believe so, so long as you are compiling it yourself and you replace the other music with this music after putting the RR/SS files in.
