So I got four Game Boy games in the mail today. One of them I had to clean a lot before I got it working. The rest are fine. This inspired me to work on Frank the Fruit Fly some more. So since I noticed that most Game Boy game songs have both treble and bass clef notes, I went to work adding some notes to the songs I already had in the game. The title screen song was easy to add notes to, but the level 1 BGM proved trickier.

As a result, I had to slow down the music a little bit so I could fit in a three-note treble note pattern. The bass was already established. Since the notes' length were 50, 10, 10, 10, and that equals 80, it wouldn't be in sync because 80 is not divisible by 3. So what I had to do was increase the notes' length to be divisible by 3. This ended up being 54, 14, 14, 14 = 96. As a result, because I have been hearing the same song over and over again while working on it, it sounds weird now that I have some treble notes in there and it's slowed down a little.

And I got a little burned out coding Cat vs. Rat, so I thought I'd do a little bit of something else anyway. I went to sleep at 4am since I had been working on something all night and woke up @ 5pm. I do this every day: Sleep for more than 12 hours. And I'm up all night. Which means it will be hard to do my 11am appointment to get my hair cut. And I need to because it's really long. As a result, I'm hot all the time because I have too much hair on my head.
