hello all , im having a bit of trouble successfully editing a .ssar file to get the sounds to play in game . the game in question is kingdom hearts 358/2 days and the program im using to edit the .sdat is nitro studio 2 , what im trying to hack is the battle quotes , how the sound effects work for the attacking is first attack sound , second sound , third sound being the final attack sound , with the first and second randomized . i added a third random sound to be played in addition to the other two to give more variety in sounds you hear .
anyways , i added the sound to the .swar , created a new .sbnk that includes said sound , and added code in the .ssar for it to play . everything plays fine in nitro studio 2 , everything works as it should , yet in game the sound isnt included as a randomized attack sound , as if i didnt change a thing . my thought was .ssar can only play a certain amount of sounds but i realized theres others with way more sounds .
my question is whether its even possible to add sound effects this way or whether some code needs to be added//changed somewhere else in the rom to tell the game to play a new sound .
any help or insight would be very appreciated
