Song of Silence

Post by cargo » Thu Dec 06, 2018 2:07 am

As many of you already know selecting "STOP MUSIC" (and similarly "NO CHANGE") can crash your NESMaker game (version 4.0.11). If you still wish to have a silent screen then you can try this workaround:

It's a song without notes but instead a few note cut commands. It will trick NESMaker into playing silence, effectively achieving the same effect. Since you are selecting this song on your screen info instead of the two before mentioned states your game should not crash. While this has worked for me so far this technique is yet unproven. Let me know if it works for you.

To use it you need to import this song to your famitracker project module. Create a text file and feed it to NESMaker. Once imported into NESMaker select the "song_of_silence" for the screens you want without music. (CTRL+P ---> Import File)

This will be handy for making only "important" screens have music,
