New Sound Replacement Trick: determine file size

I found a quicker way how to determine the size of a sound in the brsar. Instead of finding the difference between the data offsets of the sound you want to replace and the next sound, you can do a quicker calculation with the number of samples in the sound.

Open Windows Calculator, get into scientific mode if you aren’t already, and make sure you are in DECIMAL mode.

Enter the number of samples of the sound (found in Smashbox)

Click on Hex to convert that number into a hexadecimal number. divide the number by 2 and then round UP to the nearest 10. (even if you get 91, it will round up to A0)

This number will be the file size limit of your sound.

Stay tuned for more tricks.
