Adding music to unclean ROM?
Forum Index - SMW Hacking - SMW Hacking Help - Custom Music - Adding music to unclean ROM?

Sorry, I'm a total n00b when it comes to custom music. I recently downloaded HuFlungDu's Addmusic and it says to start over with a clean ROM. How dangerous is it, really, to use an unclean one? (My hack is about 10% complete)

And would it be possible to take a clean ROM, add the music to it, then insert my WIP hack into it as an IPS patch? Or am I totally screwed and need to start over if I want custom music?

Thanks.

If you haven't used any other Addmusic on it, it should be safe.

This is not possible. The two IPS patches will try to use the same freespace, and that won't end well.

Thanks. I'll give it a try--but by golly, I'd better back it up first!

And thanks for the super-fast reply.

When I began inserting custom music into my hack, I was starting work on the sixth world. At this point, the hack had several ExGFX files, some custom sprites, a few patches, and, being based on Demo World, a few blocks. I was able to use Romi's AddMusic on that dirty ROM without any issues.

@Alcaro: You can use HuFlungDu's AddMusic on a ROM that used Romi's before. I did that with mine and didn't have problems.

Still, it wouldn't hurt to have a backup in case something does go wrong.
