QuoteTales of Phantasia: Narikiri Dungeon X
QuoteToP GBA is a trashfire and you're better off spending your time on something else.
QuoteI did see a post about restoring the music in the past. Unfortunately, the game doesn't use Sappy (I've tried.)
QuoteThat said, I prefer the GBA's music.
QuoteWould you be able to "undub" the voices as well, or is that outside your area of expertise? It'd be nice to have an updated Phantasia on my 3DS.

Quote from: ShadowOne333 on February 08, 2019, 08:35:42 PMI'd say it's a wasted effort given how poor of a port it is altogether.If at all, I'd recommend an audio restoration of Mother 1+2, since that one is getting a lot of love lately with the VWF hack, and I'm planning a colour restoration of it.The Super Mario Advance series are also good contenders for an audio restoration, and maybe as an stretch the DKC trilogy on GBA, well only 1 & 2 since DKC3 had a whole new OST for GBA.
Quote from: Granville on February 08, 2019, 09:22:41 PMThe DKC trilogy are similarly botched beyond fixing in comparison to ToP IMO. There's tons of missing visual effects (for instance the first couple of jungle levels no longer have day-night shifts or lightning effects for the storm), and most of the tilesets and sprites are resized to 25% smaller than the originals.I also think I recall someone mentioning the DKC trilogy doesn't use Sappy. I'm actually not sure if the Mario Advance games use Sappy either, would be cool restoration contenders if they do of course. There are some other Capcom Disney ports that are otherwise decent as well (Magical Quest trilogy and Aladdin).Mother 2 also sounds like a good idea and does use Sappy. I haven't played much of it, but on the surface it seems like a pretty decent port other than the palette and sound issues. The translation seems to be making a lot of progress recently too (I think Jeffman just got the troublesome Mr Saturn font working).Incidentally, I wonder if the GBA port of Doom could be hacked to sound like the SNES music. It's a shockingly solid port other than the sound, it runs immensely better than the SNES version and has proper floor and ceiling textures. I think the SNES version has some extra levels cut from GBA though...
Quote from: ShadowOne333 on February 08, 2019, 11:27:48 PMYeah that's why I mentin the DKC games as a stretch.Mother 1+2 for sure I'd love to see its music restored, it's a very good port with almost no gameplay flaw other than the music.The Super Mario Advance games are really good options too, if they get a sound restoration, combined with the colour ones, they might even surpass the originals by far.And now that you brought up Doom, it made me think...Would a hack of Wolfenstein 3D for the GBA possible where the actual unused tracks are coded back into the game?As it is, that game has NO music playing at all, only SFX, but all of the song/music data is still in the ROM. I'd love to see that one happen, as that port is the most faithful to the original DOS game out of all the console ports of Wolfenstein 3D.
QuoteTales of Phantasia on SNES has one of the most technically impressive soundtrack on the system IMO (and one of the best in general). And also happens to be one of the most offensively botched jobs on the GBA, a complete disgrace.
Quote from: ShadowOne333 on February 08, 2019, 08:35:42 PMIf at all, I'd recommend an audio restoration of Mother 1+2, since that one is getting a lot of love lately with the VWF hack, and I'm planning a colour restoration of it.
QuoteBut only if you really wanted to do it for your own curiosity, and if you didn't have another GBA game restoration in mind.
QuoteSlow battles as well. I don't know how much of this is the fault of intentional programming versus the system struggling to run the game due to poor optimization.
Quote from: mikeprado30 on February 09, 2019, 12:47:57 AMI would love a music restore patch for this game SO MUCH! This one REALLY needs it
Quote from: J^P on February 08, 2019, 05:05:29 PM4. the translation is bad
