Sorry for the bump, but i'm having a problem.
I'm trying to use Bionicobot's Ptcops in Cave Story mod for this mod loader, but it's not working. I even set it up exactly like he did, but it's not working for me. I get the error: "Could not load mod 'PxtoneMod' Windows reports: The specified module could not be found."
Can anyone who got this mod to work tell me how they did it?
A lot of under-the-hood stuff's been done to the music DLL. Internally, now it has a full-blown sound mixer, so adding support for 'ogg SFX' in the future should be easy. I've also swapped out libopenmpt and libogg/libvorbis/libvorbisfile for the less-heavy libxmp-lite and stb_vorbis, bringing the DLL's size from 3MB to 800KB. Fun fact: Cave Story+ Switch uses stb_vorbis as its ogg decoder too.
In addition, I've finally added support for the Ridiculon soundtrack. Extracting Switch updates is an absolute nightmare.
If you're like me, and were horrifically disappointed by the Ridiculon soundtrack, I've also added support for Cave Story Arranged, the fan soundtrack by DM Dokuro. It's not too great right now, since it's not in a loop-friendly format, and none of the remixed jingles are there, but it works well enough.
You can get Cave Story Arranged here. Click 'Buy Digital Album' (you can "pay" $0 to get it for free), and make sure to select the Ogg Vorbis format. You can get it in FLAC if you want, but you'll have to change all the file extensions in 'playlist.txt'. Once it's downloaded, just extract the ogg files to the 'mods/alternate_music/Cave Story Arranged (DM Dokuro)/files' folder.
This is a maintenance release: a bug was found involving weapons appearing far away from the player under certain circumstances. There were also some updates to the music DLL's sound mixer, from early 2019.
This project will no longer receive any major updates: any future releases will merely address bugs. For an enhanced version of Cave Story that's intended to benefit modders, I'd recommend CSE2E instead.
Take your OGG files to the Ogg folder, which is inside the 'Cave Story Wiiware' folder in the 'alternate-music' folder, then modify the playlist.txt and change the name of the song you want to replace with the new one.
I've corrected that now. I'll go check the filenames because they might be written incorrectly.
EDIT: So apparently the error I've gotten says it cannot sound which means that I've implemented the custom music incorrectly. I've even rewritten the names so they're all in lowercase, thinking that would help things.
