    Awesome. Thanks for the help.


    To update the songs.dta file in the original package, is that just by copying the contents of the upgrades.dta and pasting it somewhere in the songs.dta?


    I assume it’s better to just create a new package rather than try to replace and resign with the original file?


    You wouldn’t combine the songs.dta and upgrades.dta info. What you can do is put both mid files together in Reaper by using the tracks in the upgrade mid to replace the ones in the original mid. After that, you wouldn’t even need the upgrades.dta and all you’d need to do is use the updated songs.dta that has the harmonies update information.


    Otherwise, if you’re going to have the song plus.mid files, you’re going to need the upgrades.dta as a seperate file in its own songs_upgrades folder rather than combining it with the songs.dta. I’ve never tried it, but it might be possible to combine the upgrades.dta info into the songs.dta by only taking this line from the upgrades.dta (Juke Box Hero as an example):


    (midi_file “songs_upgrades/jukeboxhero_plus.mid”)


    And pasting it underneath this line in the songs.dta:


    (midi_file songs/jukeboxhero/jukeboxhero.mid)


    I think you might have to move the plus.mid file into the jukeboxhero folder for the game to find it.






    The way I do it is just by updating the songs.dta with the new Harmonies Project info, put the upgrades.dta and plus.mid files in the songs_upgrades folder alongside the songs folder and rebuild the file.
