You can use samples on the OW but you can't use $E5. If you replace existing SMW samples and call them with the @ command then it's all fine and dandy. You just have to make sure they're the right tuning or transpose them yourself.

Just out of curiosity, is AddMusic 4.05 or AddMusicM better?
Coding wise, AddmusicM is far superior, and it's handling of samples and song data is much better. That said, addmusic 4.05 uses my advanced more.bin, which has data and code insertion. When this is used in sound effects, it allows for really easy "SPC hacking" without having to actually upload code and hijack the SPC manually. It's nice. Plus AMM can't really do sound effects at all so...
If I had the time, I'd try to merge the advantages of both, but it's not something I want to spend my time on.
Because making addmusic come with a tool that you already have on your computer is silly, plus cmd.exe is completely unnecessary (and I discourage it's direct use for addmusic, it should be done through bat files). Also, addmusic is cross platform, and cmd.exe would not be what you would want to run anywhere except on windows.
Yep, exactly that. You must always remember to do so, or else it will never work.
oh awesome, thank you so much!
ill tell you if it works!
You do realize there is 2 problems, 1 is solved but the other is did you say in cmd:
AddMusic.exe [your rom].smc
Because thats your problem there, your suppose to say this:
AddMusic.exe [your rom].smc Level
Yeah, no doubt about it.
That's for Carol's Addmusic. Not HFD's.
Sorry for bumping this post but no its not, I used HFD's AddMusic, Not Carols as its dumb, this part works too (I've used this trick millions of times with HFD's AddMusic so don't try and disagree with me!).

Are you a sample porter and wanna help with 100 Rooms of Enemies: The Nightmare Edition? Private Message me or Mellonpizza for details. Expect trading "resources" in exchange. 4 more left.
IIRC if you have a large amount of files you can insert the Echo Header with this python script for every song in that folder. But now it is pretty unnecessary(long word...) 'cause the Level-/Overworld-header is required if you submit a song.
I'm still having trouble with addmusic (UUGGGHH) but I noticed something:
After typing in CMD "addmusic.exe (rom name).smc -se" CMD says "there was no data to insert"... But I did exactly everything you said to but with no luck.
I'm getting pretty damn confused here, how exactly are you guys getting it to work but I can't?
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Or give them cyborg implants and conquer the British.
I'm also having roughly the same problem as supernova. When I run Addmusic 4.05, It says that everything was successful. Then when I set up the level in Lunar Magic to use that song, it does get past Mario Start, but when you either finish the level or die, the level just stays as a black screen.
I noticed on the song I was given, that an "N-SPC Patch is required". This was a comment left by the porter. Could someone possibly tell me what this means? I can't for the life of me figure it out.
Any help would be much appreciated. supernova, I understand how you feel.
