    Hi peoples of the .... umm... board... i got a Q..

    My girlfriend is madly addicted to mario, and i've recently hooked her up with Super Mario All-Stars, and Yoshi's Island, but she also gots a DS (well... its mine... but...), and i wanted to get her Yoshi's Island DS to play after she finishes its predecessor

    only problem is.... i never beat that game....cuz.... THE MUSIC SUCKS!!!!!!!

    try as i may, i could not play the game longer then 5 minutes, sometimes turning off mid-stage, so i got a question..... can ANYONE help me kill the music in this game? i know u gotta DSLazy it or something, but the files that contain the music..... which are they? and what do i gotta do to replace them with Yoshi's Island (1)'s music? do the files have to be a certain filetype, a certain size?

    i know if i give her this game, she'll either :
    -hate me (cuz the music sucks),
    -hate the game (cuz the music sucks)
    or worst case scenario....
    -love the god awful music and play it constantly where i can hear it!!!!! (cuz the music SUUUCKSSSSSS!!!)

    can anyone direct me in this endeavor?

    or did someone already do this? if so, can i get the link?

    sounds are generally stored in a .sdat file.
    but you can't just replace it with a random sdat from a different game, since the music in other games have different filesizes and durations.

    I want the sound, not the music, lol

    The World Ends With You has some mods, why not this? there has to be a converting process no?

    Can't you unpack it edit, and then repack it with DS lazy?

    Have a look for the tetris DS sound threads as they are what you want to be doing (I made one to change the music to kalinka/karinka/korobenki (various names depending on who you speak to/where you look but think the classic tetris theme and another person whose name eludes me right now made one to kill the sound completely)

    edit: here is my thread but I seem to recall the no music one had a lot more detail.
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=36870

    Failing that have a look at some of the undubbing threads and links within them as they will eventually land you at the DS SDAT sound format specs:

    You most likely just want to adjust the file system to play something more agreeable or to a nonexistent space.

    Since you are moving data around and changing files IPS isn't the best way to patch it. There is another patching system but I forget what it is called, PPF?

    As for sharing it, depends on what you are replacing the music with as to whether you are allowed to or not. But yeah I agree YIDS's music is intolerable.

    sorry man, it's just that people usually say "use the search function", so i thought it would be useless to make another topic...

    Also...this is old, but I must note that The World Ends with You is a different beast. It uses streamed audio, so all the songs are ADX files. If you look at them and know what format the game expects, it isn't that hard to make an ADX with some loop points that sounds nice.
