    In the wii menu, Is it possible that I replace it with a cool song or something with a homebrew app?

    That would be awesome if you could. I would replace mine with the Altimit Mine OS music from .hack//G.U.

    Should be possible. Somewhere in an unpacked Menu you can find for shure the File, and replace it. I think I even can remember that it has been done before...but don't ask me where the loaction of the music is, and what tools you need...

    No one figured it out during the menu modding craze a while ago. If someone has cracked it since, I havent heard of it.

    I had a look at the System Menu, unpacking some files and the like, and could only find the sound of the moving between pages so far...but I didn't extract any arc files I saw, may try that see if they have anything interesting in them.

    The music in the menu is not a single file... it's in a brsar archive.. guess it's a compressed collection of brstm files...
    It seems music hacking in SSBB is possible... one might get clues from there.. though I don't know if there is any good brsar tool out there...

    ps1: If you want to do it just for the sake of it... Wii fit contains a bunch of brstm files and there are tools to convert wav/mp3s to brstm files...
    ps2: brsar possibly an audio resource archive like bmg files are language resource files... meaning possible ability of storing sounds with metadata (language, other information)

    where is this brsar located?

    EDIT: BTW, unpacking the ARC files gave me ZND files, which I have no idea what they are. I tried to use znd.py from wii.py to convert them to HOG files (which I still have no idea what they are either, but as it converted them to it, I figured they must be easier to work with), but it gave errors.

    Huh, I unpacked that earlier and all I got was the page-changing sound, not the background sound...
    Perhaps I should try a different unpacker. Anyway, is there a packer for BRSAR?

    EDIT: OK, I see now, its because current BRSAR unpackers suck (no offence meant to the coders of them [​IMG])
