your ultimate goal.
I would love to have the Toxic Seahorse theme for my level, in NES tune of-course. Format, doesn't the NES just have one format, NSF?
Have you ever composed Megaman 2 music before? I believe infidelity did a full documentation on Megaman 2's music format.
I might need help with sprite work, since I'm not good at pixel art.
Hello, hyakulegger. Welcome to Romhacking.net and the super special awesome world of SMB3 hacking.
There actually is an available SMB3 Music Editor program that was written by JaSp many years ago. He shared the last version that he made of it publicly back in 2009 through Board 2. You can download the utility at the following link:
He shared it in the following topic, "Going after the SMB3 Music Format...":
If you try searching through Google before you ask potential questions, you might discover other helpful little bits of relevant information here and there. When it comes to NES SMB3, many frequently asked questions have been answered and covered in the past, and as henke37 likes to point out in most recent SMB3 related threads, there is a disassembly for the game out there that you can also locate.
JaSp also created the SMB3 Music Inserter, but that program is designed specifically for the expanded Reuben SMB3 ROM. Since your current intention is to only modify the graphics and music, unless you want to make use of expanded CHR-ROM space to further customize your graphical modifications, you most likely don't need to use an expanded Reuben SMB3 ROM. Nonetheless, the thread for the utility, also last active in 2009, can be viewed here:
Best of luck! You can do it!
I'm doing some ROM hacking, but I'm doing it in small increments as to not burn myself out. I went to the doctor to have my eyes checked, and my eyes are fine. So whatever it was that I was doing, it was from too much focus on the computer. So now I only do things for smaller periods of time.
Anyway, one of the things I always wanted to, which to this day I still have not done, is make a complete hack (levels, graphics, music, ASM, etc.). So, I started this hack about a month ago. I don't have a title for it yet, but it's a Megaman 2 hack.

I want to try to put the Toxic Seahorse theme in. I'm not good with music, but I'm going to see if I can compose something. If anyone wants to help with the music, that would be awesome. You'll be put in the credits as my music guy!
The question was not if you are a hacker - but rather if you are ready to become one...?
I've done music hacking with the N-SPC engine, but I've always wanted to work out how SMB3's music engine worked because in the Airship Theme, the note lengths for the first few DPCM samples (the Tom Tom drums) are too long! Compare the original version to the SNES remake.
Short answer, yes, long answer, not unless you have some NES programming experience, or a little help.
Welcome aboard the crazy train. SMB3 might take a while, but has good editors. Do you have any previous game hacking experience?
Any links to your music?
Ever tried famitracker NES music tracker?
