Guys, terrible news, I'm running into computer problems, my computer refuses to boot except on this first aid Linux session I'm writing this message from. Hard drive crash or something like that, I *could* have lost some or all of the sources of this hack, I don't know yet. This would make future fixing more difficult (but not impossible).
Given my very limited knownlege of Linux I don't even know how to try to access the drive that seem to be faulty if it doesn't appear by default. And it's a SSD I bought new barely a year ago. Perhaps the warranty is just not over yet ? (I'll have to double check)
@shadowsoftcreation : What part of the game are you talking about ? I made sure all the songs are synchronized since I did this error in version 1.0 of my FF6 patch. So I of course made sure everything was syncronoized in this update (at the price of a major downgrade in quality in the orchestral intro - but that's another problem).
It's impossible you have 30 seconds of silence at the end of the intro - the exact opposite
is supposed to happen since the SNES original - the end of the intro song is cut off by the fall of a meteor and is therefore not accessible in the game. It is however accessible with the music player. This applies to both orchestral and sequenced versions, and to all regions.
It seems there is a little diffrences in delays in different languages, making the music slightly "off", but there's nothing I can do about this and this is already present in the original GBA ROM. In any case, what you mention (30 seconds of silence at the end of intro) is not possible.
@dwedit : I have no idea. I just changed the mixing code itself.
@TheZunar123 : During the zillion of experimentations I did have that exact problem at some point. However it should not appear in the version I released. The cause was the placebo BIOS of Virtual Boy Advance not being accurate enough. On real hardware or with VBA using the real BIOS, this bug would not appear. I since then made sure that even with VBA and the default placebo BIOS this problem would not appear. If it does that's really weird. You should use a real BIOS or real hardware I guess. I'd love to double check that, but my computer is giving me even more trouble than this patch's release now
I'll assume the bug you encountered is the exact same as TheZunar123 : The intro was slowed down like crazy because of the placebo BIOS, causing the music, who plays at normal pace, to finish early. In that case my answer is the same : Use an emulator with real BIOS or use real hardware
I can't even run *any* emulator right now unfortunately.
