I Got this error when i was trying to build the song:

Do I have to add an overdrive along with the rest of the difficulty for the midi? also what are drum fills?

Do read those RBN Docs Gigakoops linked in your guitar question. They'll answer those questions.

 

Drum fills and overdrive aren't required for the compiler to work but will throw that warning until they're charted. As for your error, it appears there are no actual notes in the drums section. Somewhere in your drum track you should have notes or the compiler won't work. Just put a few notes randomly into the drums track for each difficulty if you aren't planning on charting them yet so the compiler will work.

Yes sorry about that, I just remembered about that link and read about them. How exactly do I put notes into the drum track?

Just like how you chart guitar. On hard/med/easy, just add one note to the start of the chart, usually where it starts on expert. That should do the trick.

Okay, thank you, don't think I'm getting errors now.

It looks like you've possibly mistakenly placed your notes for Expert (usually charted first) in the Easy part of the Drum track.

 

You should start adding notes to the lanes marked "Expert Green", "Expert Blue", etc. and when you finish, to pass the compiler without errors you must copy and paste those notes you placed for expert into the other difficulty lanes below.

 

You have a lot of reading to do too haha, if you want some help, PM me and I'll try to get you started.

It would be great if there was a troubleshooting guide for all common Magma errors.  I know I've been there before asking for help on these common errors.  I know this forum has a lot of answers but sometimes it's difficult getting search results.

Uh-huh, I'm right there with you on that one and I'm not yet at the compilation stage yet haha.

 

The compiler errors are usually self explanatory though, I see a lot of posts where the errors are sometimes quite obvious but maybe that's just me.

 

It'd probably help more simply teaching people how to interpret them.

 

I think people really need like an absolute beginners guide too. I know charting is very complicated, but that's not going to deter most people, so levels of tutorials would help them steadily increase their skills. Also important is the realisation of how time-consuming a custom is to chart alone, I think more emphasis should be placed on collaborating. I think that is the most efficient and time-effective way of getting quality customs out there.
