Yet Another NDS Monkey Island Music Question
I have everything working well on my DS - I am going to be on an 8 month tour with a puppet show soon, so I'm am over the moon at being able to play a couple of old favourites and neat looking new (old) games for the first time! BASS looks really impressive.
Everything I've tried works great, except for the music with Monkey Island 1
I realize I'm adding to a linage of posts on this topic, but I've read through them all and they have been helpful enough to keep me busy on this for some days by myself... I now need to ask for help.
I am using a MacBook Pro
I understand that I need to convert the music files using this config:
Compression: IMA ADPCM
Samplerate: 22050 Hz
On the fly encoding: On
and I think I've learned that they need to be "4 bit IMA ADPCM" as well.
I have tried and tried with Audacity, Max, Switch, and even resorted to trying to figure out SoX (a code based thing). But I cannot for the life of me stop getting the message:
Looking for mp:Monkey/track1.wav...
Failed to open mp:/monkey/!
Console enable: 1
I *think* that when Audacity is converting the file, it is not making it a "4-bit" file, because when I open it up to check, it says it's "16 bit PCM" (I have changed the export format to "4 bit IMA ADPCM" in the preferences menu, but it doesn't seem to be converting it to a 4 bit file). There is no "on the fly encoding" option...
I have kind of gone very very batty over this in the past 48 hours, actually losing sleep trying to figure this out...
Does anybody know a sound program that will let me make the proper conversions? Or something that I might be doing wrong with Audacity? (macintosh version, 1.2.5 - I tried 1.3.12 but it doesn't seem to give you the option to convert to a 4 bit IMA ADPCM).
I don't know why I'm dedicating so much time to this, I *just* played the special edition when it came out, but what can I say, it's a bee in my bonnet.
Thanks very much in advance for anyone who can virtually stand next to me and scratch their head about this!
