  1. Importing music to FEBuilder GBA

    Hello ! I've been working on a hack for some while, and now I'd like to do something I've never done before : Importing custom music to FE8. I know it's a difficult thing to do, and after having tried (and abandoned) importing music from various sources (Most noticeably games like Ib, Majora's Mask, FE9/10 and a lot of others), I wanted to know if it was possible to import music from other GBA games, or at least the two other FE. It would be on FEBuilder, as you can tell by the tags. Also, I can't afford to spend money on this, so if I need any other application, it should be free. I don't know if it's important (Probably not) but here's the list of music I'd like to import : So, is it possible ? Thanks for reading anyway, and, well, I hope someone out here will be kind enough to help me !
  2. A good soundtrack is a must for any good movie, game, anime, or T.V. show because it can help enhance a scene for great emotional pay off. However then comes the question on whether a piece of music should sound good on it's own and within the context of the scene it's in or is it better for the music to be amazing within the scene but not so great on it's own.
  3. Where do you get your music?

    For those of you whose games have original soundtracks, where do you get them? From certain sites? Did you make them yourself? I've been looking around to see if I can find anything, but most music intended for use in video games are clearly for RPGs and not turn-based strategy, so they kind of don't fit with what I need them to do. (I know there's been topics like this before, but they were so long ago that most of the links are broken by now...)
  4. [FE7] Music - Instrument Shenanigans

    Why hello there, hackers with significantly more talent than I! I seem to have gotten myself into a..... rather mystifying situation. .......holy shit where do I start. So, I'm new to music hacking. When I first got into the hacking business little over a year ago, I dabbled in it (using Sappy cause I'm a hipster), got frustrated and left it to rot while I figured out other aspects of hacking magic. But back then I also made a Rom specifically for music testing, which I applied a patch or two to without documenting anything. This being the problem here. (The only one I know I inserted was the FE7 Native Instrument Map.) Recently I finally figured out the basics of inserting songs that don't come out as ear torture, and I've been using said old testing Rom for....well... testing them. They work absolutely fine there, but when I insert them into the Rom for my actual hack, they have....some slight oddities. As an example: here's a song in my (now completely bugged) testing Rom: (Yes, it IS one of the boss themes from Mega Man X4) Correct Song.mp4 Sounds pretty good. Just how I want it to sound. Now here's the same song (exact same .s file) in my actual Rom: Bugged Song.mp4 (btw this is how it sounds in any Rom other than the testing one, not just this particular one). I guess the game can't handle the amount of instruments being played, since it periodically mutes some of them. Both of these are played with the aformentioned Native Instrument Patch, and the song has the same priority in both Roms. I didn't insert any custom sound samples into the test Rom (or the other one). I usually just dick around with stuff like this until it works, but this time I'm well and truly stumped.
  5. forblaze's FE Music Thread

    I make FE music arrangements and just wanted to share what I've got with you all. New songs will be added as they come, and I hope you enjoy. Feedback and requests are welcome! [FE16] Trailer Theme (No SFX) [FE7] Reminiscence - Ninian and Nils' Theme (Cinematic Orchestral Arrangement) [FE7] Winds Across the Plains - Lyn Map BGM (Relaxing Orchestra Arrangement)
  6. There is really not much to say at the moment, except expect one track every week. This week there will be much progress, but do not expect it to go on this pace. Preview of latest track:
  7. I made an orchestral arrangement of Reminiscence from FE7 and wanted to share it with you all. I plan on doing a few more songs from FE7, so if you have any requests let me know!
  8. Fueled by hype, I created an arrangement of the awesome music from the trailer and would like to share it with you all. I intended for it to be as true to the original as possible, and I hope you agree. Please enjoy!
  9. Help make my completed romhack pretty!

    Hello all, A week and a half ago I released a completed 19-chapter romhack called "Heaven's Bloom." However, there are many things on the artistic side of the project which are somewhat beyond the scope of my talent, so I've come here in search of volunteers to help with a few aspects of this. 1. Mugs I've made mugs for all* the playable characters and major NPCs, but they're fairly sloppy splices of other FE assets, and they aren't 'clean' by any means. Additionally, minor bosses currently just have re-used FE8 mugs, and *two of the playable characters (Hands and Derruk) currently use un-used mugs from base FE8. I would ideally want all of these mugs to be re-done, while keeping things like hair / armour colour intact. 2. Maps For the prologue and chapters 1-9, I was working with someone who was really good at making maps look aesthetically pleasing. However, he got burnt out for the project, so the rest of the maps were done by me, and I'm much less talented in this regard; there's a noticeable drop in the visual quality of the maps after chapter 9. For this, I would want someone who can touch up these maps in the colour / shading department while retaining the current layout & terrain 3. Music This is probably the least urgent of my goals. I've written original music for much of the game, but sort of got burnt out and didn't end up doing everything - all the map & battle themes are done, but most of the cutscenes still have FE8 music. I know this is a spriter's forum so it's a long shot, but if anybody is good at composition and wants to send me MIDI files that thematically fit with the music I've written, I would not be opposed in the slightest. Anyone who's played the hack probably also knows that the battle palettes are also a bit of a mess, but somebody has already volunteered to take care of this, and they're doing a really good job so far. I'll be very grateful for any & all help with these aspects of the project! You'll be included in the special thanks section of the main thread & eventually the in-game credits screen. Just send me a PM so that I can make sure you're not working on the same asset as someone else. With that said, hope everyone's weekend is off to a great start
  10. and it's AWESOME! Any of ya listened to it already? What you all think about it? I know there might be some controversy about it, since it's really different from "The Bones of What You Believe", but I find the new ones at least as good as the olds. Any favourites already? Miracle and Deliverance are really-really great, though honestly, I think I can't yet choose one that's so much better than the others. I will have to listen to all of them a few dozen times for that :D
  11. Hi, I remade the 'The Black Knight Theme' and 'Unstoppable Destiny' in GBA format to use in hacks if people want. Here's a video: If I shouldnt have made a new topic for this, I'm sorry.

  12. General Music Thread

    Post any cool songs you've listened to recently, or share an all time favorite. If you really want to, go ahead and share any music that you've made yourself.
  13. People Needed for a Fan Game

    Hey anyone who's willing to help me, I have plans for a new Fire Emblem Fan Project, I currently have writers covered but anymore would be helpful, also for map design so all I need is sprite makers, portrait makers and code writers but if you can help in any way it would be greatly appricated. If your interested then private message me or comment interest/people who could help and I'll put in the effort A huge thanks to anyone willing to help and those already helping :)
  14. Favorite Song?

    So, what songs do you guys and gals like the most? It doesn't matter where it comes from, it could be from a video game, a music artist, a band, whatever. Leave a link to the song if you'd like. Personally, I enjoy Hypnotized by Fleetwood Mac. Here's a link to it:
  15. Favorite Preparation theme?

    Bit of a random question, but see title. For me, it's Conquest's: Resolve (Dark). I quite like the transition into the Flute segment. Links: Enemy Phase (Dark Dragon and the Blade of Light) Rebellion (Mystery of the Emblem) Sally (Thracia 776) Prepare to Charge (The Binding Blade) Prepare to Charge (The Blazing Blade) Combat Preparation (The Sacred Stones) Raising Morale (Path of Radiance) Backsliding (Radiant Dawn) Pray for Victory (Radiant Dawn Endgame) Preparations (Shadow Dragon) Before Battle (New Mystery of the Emblem) "We'd best prepare for combat, just to be safe" (Awakening) "Fate won't change, after all." (Awakening) Resolve (Light) (Fates: Birthright) Resolve (Dark) (Fates: Conquest) Those Who Visit (Fates: Revelation) Preparations: Deliverance (Shadows of Valentia Alm Side) Preparations: Pilgrimage (Shadows of Valentia Celica Side) Preparations: Reunion (Shaows of Valentia Endgame) I don't think FE2 and 4 have true prep themes, but if they do correct me and link them.
  16. I was wondering how musicians and creators of Fire emblem hacks and GBA hacks in general found and used GBA instruments in the musical compositions. I have been writing music using the electric piano at my house, and am confident in my musical ability, but I do not know how to write it using GBA instruments. I am not asking anyone to write music for me, but I would appreciate it if somebody helped explain the basics of writing music for a FE hack, and would appreciate it if they helped me figure out how to import it into a game as well.
  17. I don't know about you, but in my opinion by far one of the best things about a Fire Emblem game is its soundtrack. But which game has the best one? That's the question will be answered with this thread! Personally, its incredibly hard for me to choose as I love just about all of them. If I had to choose one however, I would have to go with New Mystery. Honestly I am not entirely sure why I love this game's soundtrack as much as I do. There's just something about it that is just exhilarating to listen to. My favorite track from the game itself has to be either "Friend" or "Tearing Shadows".
  18. I'm planning on hosting a dance panel at Metrocon (Tampa FL). I have a lot of music already, but some of these songs loop and the actual part that I can use is between 30 seconds and 1 minute. Also I can't use every song that comes my way since music for games isn't always something that can be used for dance. I want to try to use a song from every Fire Emblem, so if anyone knows of songs that I can use that are between 2 and 5 minutes with no looping and not from Blazing Sword, Awakening, Fates, or Echoes (I already have songs from those games I can use) I'd really appreciate the extra ears looking for this.
  19. Rate the Country Music above!

    I had this idea come up and we will rate courtry music from the above I'll start.
  20. We all have songs we love that are from before out time. Show me what you got ya musical hipsters, I'll start with a reeeeeeally old one.
  21. Help Needed

    Calling all spriters & sound designers! There have recently been a chain of supposed leaks about the upcoming 16th Fire Emblem game (Found here: ) The legitimacy of these leaks are questionable at best, so I thought it could become a fangame, I however, am not particularly good at spriting, and I know nothing about sound design. So I require help in those departments. The game will be developed on FEXP.
  22. I made a remix to the OST version of Dance in the Sky (aka Silesia music). It always bothered me they omitted the sleigh bells. dancing in the sky.mp3
  23. Putting Midis into FE8 Rom

    Alright. I've just ripped some FE11 and FE12 Midis and .sf2's directly from the game. What are some steps I need to take to put them into Sacred Stones? (I hope this isn't too vague) I have the Sappy program, and HxD, and have applied the 12 instrument patch, but I could use some tips from here on out.
  24. Here's something that everyone will love. Dataminers have gifted us the map themes from the special warriors maps that will feature in Heroes later this month. Prelude - Awakening Duty - Awakening No Justice - Fates Road Taken - Fates Justice RIP - Fates
  25. How to change music?

    Does anyone know how to change what song plays during what scene? Like for example, the main theme was playing during a conversation and I wanted to replace it with another existing song in the game's soundtrack, how would I go about doing that?
