StarTropics (Music Fix)

Hack of StarTropics

Description:

Two of the music tracks in StarTropics are slightly broken, the island map music, and one of the ending tunes. This patch fixes them both.

I’ve also created a fully labelled disassembly, and complete description of the StarTropics music format. For anyone looking to hack new music into StarTropics, this will be a good guide.

Source code: http://rainwarrior.ca/projects/nes/startropics_music_fix.zip

Some emulators, notably Nestopia, do not support modifications to the StarTropics ROM due to a conflation of the MMC3 and MMC6 mappers as iNES mapper 4. If the emulator has to use a CRC check to select MMC6, it may have problems running the patched ROM (e.g. audio will be silent, and name registration will fail).
