Does anybody know how to edit the Super Mario Bros. (NES) BGM?
« on: November 04, 2017, 03:50:14 pm »
Hello!

So because i was bored and started to make my first NES romhack of Super Mario Bros. (Super Boris Bros.) and i really want to change the BGM.
Problem is that i didnt find any helpful guide or an easy way to edit the music. Can someone give me a hand and help me out?
(Also, i mostly dont have any experience in this. So this is new for me.)

Thanks!

Yes, I know how to hack the background music. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YIh47uk1Hjw

What do you want to replace it with?

We might as well get the 3 Ghosts out of the way: what's your prior music experience (if any), approximate IQ, and how eager are you to make this project happen?

Have you seen w7n's music hacking guide yet? This document is the easiest to understand out of the rest. https://www.romhacking.net/documents/630/

approximate IQ,

Umm... Does it really count?

Can't I just be treated like a normal person? People react too easily these days.

Yes. The 3 Ghosts of Hackmas matter, whether we want them to or not. Prior music experience (Past) will grease the skids when dealing with terms like "quarter note", "F-Sharp five", etc. IQ (Present) is the best indicator of how quickly a person picks up and retains new concepts. Motivation (Future) is the final determinant in how likely a given project is to succeed.
