Hello.
I am trying to insert a song from here into my ROM.
I am using AddmusicK (and thus AMKGUI).
When I try and run the song, I get an error stating:

Unrecognized character '!'.

On various lines of the .txt file. I am able to locate the '!' in the .txt file, but I do not know what to do about it.

Thanks in advance!


It's difficult to tell exactly where the issue is based on that alone. Could you share the song file in question?

It may also be worth retrying with a fresh download of AMK; it could be not an issue with the song, but with another file that was edited.

Sure. Its from the file for Buoy Base by Izuna.

Here are some example errors from AMKGUI:

File: buoybase main/SMG - Buoy Base (SMW-compatible).txt Line: 46:
Unrecognized character '!'.
File: buoybase main/SMG - Buoy Base (SMW-compatible).txt Line: 47:
Unrecognized character '!'.
File: buoybase main/SMG - Buoy Base (SMW-compatible).txt Line: 48:
Unrecognized character '!'.
File: buoybase main/SMG - Buoy Base (SMW-compatible).txt Line: 49:
Unrecognized character '!'.

Here are lines 46-49:

(!800)[$F4 $09]
(!801)[$ED $7A $E0]
(!900)[$FA $01 $B4]
(!901)[$FA $01 $B8]

When I look over the errors and the accompanying lines of text, it always shows up wherever there is an '!' .
i.e. # of ! = # of errors. In fact, any song that includes '!' in its text file does not play.

Would a fresh download of AMK reset my previously set songs?


Yeah, those are a proper feature of AMK (remote code definition), so it's most likely an issue with your version of the program. Redownloading shouldn't cause any issues as far as I'm aware, just keep the files from your music/samples folders and AMK's Addmusic_list.txt file to not lose your song list.

Okay thanks for your help! I'll try that then.
I'm having this exact same issue, and redownloading AddmusicK didn't fix it. What's weirder is that when I try inserting via the command line instead, AddmusicK brings up even more errors about unrecognized characters, including various symbols and numbers.
