1. What you will need:
- Audacity (optional)
- NUS3Bank Editor
- The MP3 or WAV file you want to convert
- A NUS3Bank file (If you don't have one, download the silent NUS3Bank in the downloads section)
- WinRAR (optional)
Audacity is to make sure your MP3/WAV file is at the perfect volume.
You will need an MP3/WAV file to convert, and you will need to have a song to convert. If you don't have one, then you can find a Youtube video with a song and put it through an Youtube to mp3 converter.
Obviously you will need NUS3Bank converter too.
2. (OPTIONAL) Preparing your MP3 or WAV file.So you have your MP3/ WAV file. One small issue. Is it loud enough? If you want to adjust the volume of your file before converting, which you should, read this guide also written by me:
The guide will teach you how to properly check is your song is the right volume, and then fix it. I highly advise checking it out.
Whether or not you fixed your file, on to the next step.
3. (Optional) Unpacking the Silent NUS3BankIf you want to use my silent NUS3Bank file, then first download the zip file. Unzip the file with WinRAR. Move the NUS3Bank file to NUS3Bank editor master, so it is in the same folder as the .exe file. Keep it there for simplicity.
4. Convert the file.Now to the converting. Open NUS3Bank editor. (see picture 1)
Click "file", then click "Open NUS3Bank".
Select your NUS3Bank file. Open it. Your file will now appear in the NUS3Bank editor. Click on it so it is highlighted in blue. (see picture 2). While it is selected, click "Replace".
Find your MP3/ WAV file. Open it.
5. To loop or not to loop?Some pages should flash by. The shorter your song, the quicker they will pass. DO NOT attempt to close any of them, unless you don't want to convert your NUS3Bank. Multiple windows will flash by, then a question will pop up if your MP3/ WAV doesn't loop (meaning when it ends, it ends, the song does not restart on its own).
"No loop was detected, would you like your audio sound to loop from the beginning to the end?" (picture 3)
If you want your song to endlessly repeat in SSB4, select "yes". This is recommended for songs. If you do not want your song to endlessly repeat, select "No". This is recommended for Voices and SFX noises. After your choice, continue to the next step.
6. Convert your file two, Electric Boogaloo.Some more pages should flash by, and then finally the last question, asking you if you would like to replace your NUS3Bank with the audio file. (see picture 3). Smash that yes button.
Another window will now pop up saying the file has been converted. (see picture 4) Click "Ok". If you did everything correctly, your NUS3Bank editor should look like picture 5, by which I mean the once grey bottom banner should now be light blue. (see picture 5)
Click "file", then "save as". Give your file a name! Name it:
Put whatever you want in the X's. You now have a NUS3Bank! YAY
7. (Optional) Preparing to post on Gamebanana.Create a folder. Call it whatever you want. Place the NUS3Bank in the folder. Use WinRAR to zip the folder. You will now have a RAR file! You can post this on Gamebanana!
8. Troubleshooting:Are you receiving additional errors? Is the conversion not working? Well just check over these steps.
8.1. It is taking too long!This is one of two things. 1: Your song is extremely long. If your song is 15+ minutes, expect the program to stay on one page for a long time. Looping only makes this process longer. If you have a song that repeats itself every 5 minutes and it is a 30 minute long extended version, then consider cropping it. The song will convert faster and be a smaller file size, and you can still loop it.
2: Your PC just sucks. There is no real fix to this. Sorry.
8.2. I have added a NUS3Bank, I choose an MP3 to replace, and it won't start the process!First: Make sure the MP3 doesn't have any wacky symbols in it. Keep it to letters, numbers, and underscores. Why? Because the file cannot convert if so. To test if this is the issue, place your MP3 in an empty folder. Zip it with WinRAR. If the file cannot zip and displays an error message, just rename the file until it can zip.
If you are using a WAV, try using an MP3.
