I started making very bad ports, My beginning was very bad, My first port was one of SM64, a song called Stage Boss, What I did was install tinymm and put a midi, convert it and paste it in a port of smw forest, (which is included in the originals folder inside the amk music folder) And do not change the vibrato or the panning and that r8 /
, Just the tempo, And I thought about raising it.
The truth is that I did not make any effort on that "first port" garbage. After about 4 months I almost dominated the ports, the second port that I did had the same errors, bad panning, garbage vibrato, etc.
The third add echo, (copied from another port) and copy the song 2 times, quite redundant.
In the fourth there were the same errors, mml not optimized and incorrect notes and bad channel distribution, Finally in the fifth I improved a lot, but I forgot about the optimization, so they rejected it, In the sixth instead of fixing the optimization, I fixed optimization and made it sound better, and they finally accepted it.
There are still many more ports but I will not tell anything about them.
Also a few weeks ago I tried to modify smw graphics to turn them into Super Mario Land sprites, (I had thought to make a smw romhack that looks like a SMAS version of Super Mario Land) And it didn't work out at all.
