So, I have a GBA game, specifically Final Fantasy IV Advance. It uses the SAPPY sound engine just like Pokemon games do. I know I can dump a MIDI of the song, but I don't think SAPPY dumps the MIDI with looping, and even if it did I don't have any software that can convert a looping MIDI with soundfont to a looping OGG file or BSTRM file. Looping OGG files have this in the metadata:
- LOOPSTART (Point where the loop starts, in samples)
- LOOPLENGTH (Number of samples after the sample where the loop starts)

So, is there any way I can dump and automatically loop the song myself?

If it uses Sappy, it works (or can be forced to work) with GBAMusRiper, which includes looping in MIDIs as markers. If you use Anvil Studio, you can convert the marker positions to samples and loop your OGG or BR/C/FSTM that way.

Also you're in the wrong section but whatever.

  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    makin shit tonnes of money and gold
  • Kingy @ Kingy:
    How are you finding RDO, Dinoh? I've been thinking of pulling the trigger on it, but I've heard some complaints about it
  • Jayro @ Jayro:
    I wanna TSOP flash my soft-modded Xbox.
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    If it's already soft modded you could just try chimp if it's not a 1.6
  • Jayro @ Jayro:
    I honestly haven't cracked it open to look, I don't have the proper tool. I need to order one, cut out the clock cap, and then TSOP flash it so I can replace the harddrive with a larger SATA one.
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    I think anything pre 2005 is below a
    1.6 1.6 is just ass cause you gotta 5 wire mod it and chimp didn't work that well
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Should say on the label underneath
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Also if it is 1.6 leave the cap on or it'll brick it
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    @Kingy I'm playing on private sessions sooo I can't judge about the community
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    but from the encounters I had, low level pillocks can't shoot for shit, tryhards are almost non existent and the majority of the players are wary but friendly
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    unlike GTAO, where it doesn't matter where you spawn in, atleast 3 tryhard bikes are coming for you the moment you spawned in
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    also, I'm playing it on console, I know on PC it's a fuckfest of cheating fuck children :c

    re: pillocks can't shoot for shit
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    I had a dumb moron behind me once when I was near S. Denis, wanting to pick up an egg
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    pillock rode on his cunt horse behind me, entered dead eye and shot at me 3 times
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    MISSED ALL HIS SHOTS!
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    I turned around, popped him in the face with a humiliation round (varmint)
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    he respawned, I murdered him quickly only to rapidly shoot the egg out of the tree and pick it up
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    guy somehow thought it was a brilliant plan to come at me again
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    one quick facepop and I decided to quickly teleport via wilderness camp cus fuck that arse, not going to waste precious time :')
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    I have noticed that the game itself is quite sluggish
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    could also be me just being 2fast4thegaem
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    but overall, RDO is worth if
  • DinohScene @ DinohScene:
    it*, especially if you have some mates who join in
