Which seems to happen on every hoster eventually. Tinypic did that a couple years ago, and imgur about a year ago IIRC.

Okay, so I think I've narrowed everything down, but I need some time and confirmation to be sure!

Essentially, now that I have found the address in the ROM file of the sample that needs to be replaced, I now have to use an external hex editor to open up my new sample and manually copy in all the byte data to overwrite the old sample, right?
I'm double-checking because, according to SoundDisplay, I've got 177 bytes to manually plug in (I'm starting to see why a script would be nice!)

No need for manual work, use Copy & Paste. If you're using Windows, try HxD. It's a very nice (and free) hex editor. The menu option you're looking for is Edit -> Paste write (use this instead of Paste insert to avoid changing the ROM size).

Ahahaha!

You have all successfully guided me through this hurdle. The sample is ringing out loud and clear in my ROM and it has brought a massive smile to my face.
Thanks for your help, everyone. I can't thank you enough!

As a fun side note: the sound I ended up using was a tiny snippet of my fiance's laugh that I recorded while she wasn't paying attention :)
It will be extra fun to be able to tell her that the sound effect is her own voice!

Honnestly if your goal it to have this noise sound more female, it should be simple to simply have the same sample playing at a faster speed. I'm fairly confident that's what CV3 does when playing with Sypha Benlades as a playable character. So basically only the value written to $4010 have to change.

Thanks for the suggestion!
Fortunately, I've already got my sound plugged in (even if it took a few extra steps) and I'm really, really happy with the results. Even if the difference is minuscule, I think it will be way cooler to be able to say that it's her own voice :)

That's a really neat trick, though. I'll have to keep it in mind for future SFX!
