That makes sense. Another chunk related question, say I were to add custom chunks to place in the levels in addition to those already placeable/selectable, would I need to find space for these additional chunks?

If the level already has the maximum amount of chunks, you can either delete existing chunks that you aren't using (which will break any other layout that uses the same chunk set) and add new chunks to the end of the list, or edit existing chunks in-place.

Quick help needed. I wanna make the emerald jingle work like the Extra Life does, where the music fades back in afterward.

Tried this in s1.sounddriver.asm:

		cmpi.b	#bgm_Emerald,d7		; is the "extra life" music to be played?
		beq.s	@bgmcont	; if not, branch
                cmpi.b	#bgm_ExtraLife,d7		; is the "extra life" music to be played?
		bne.s	@bgmnot1up	; if not, branch
                tst.b	f_1up_playing(a6)	; Is a 1-up music playing?
		bne.w	@locdblret	; if yes, branch
		lea	v_track_ram(a6),a5
		moveq	#9,d0	; [(1 DAC + 6 FM) or (7 FM)] + 3 PSG

Making a song act like a 1-up jingle consists of two parts.
Part 1 is what you have done already - make a save state of the level BGM.
Part 2 is to make it restart the BGM after the jingle finishes. In order to make that work, you need to hex-edit the SMPS file. Search for the Track End flag ($F2) on the DAC track and replace it with the Fade In flag ($E4).

Except doing it on the DAC track for the emerald jingle won't work, as it uses 6 FM channels — this would cause premature fade-in. You want to use the flag ValleyBell suggested, but at the end of another track.

So, I am trying to change the background of the Title Screen in Sonic 1 using SonEd2. I followed the guide to create the new files so that the game would call for the background I made rather than the Green Hill Zone background. I save the work that I have done in SonEd2 then build and test the game. Every time I test the game, the title screen has no background and neither does Green Hill Zone. What am I doing wrong?
