Title: Modding Music
Post by: sscarabb on June 24, 2020, 10:28:53 PM
Does anyone know how to change club songs? I like them but I need some novelty.

I tried changing mp3 files but it broke my game... Maybe someone here knows a way around.

Try to encode the mp3 files to 128 kbps

...and make sure you haven't played or created them with microsoft media player. The microsoft player adds some junk to the files and that will break the game.

Does that include "groove music" as well?

Possibly. Convert the files with audacity or foobar and never open the outcome files with any default windows program

It worked! Thanks  :smile:

Does anyone know how to adjust loudness though? It's a bit low.

Option A: in Audacity reduce the volume with the effect Amplify (recommended)
Option B: in sound\schemes find the schematic of the file you need to lower the volume and insert a different value on the volume section

I'm not sure I agree with Barabbah here. At least not if the volume changes you have to make are minor.
In any case I wouldn't recommend replacing the original soundfiles. I'd put new ones into the music folder and set new paths (and volumes) in the scheme files, and keep the original paths and volumes there commented out (// at the beginning of the line).

Of course this doesn't work for the Asylum where the music is not part of the sound scheme but directly on the map as ambient_generic.

If mp3 causes CTD convert it to wav and correct the line in sound/schemes something.mp3 to something.wav

That is another solution  :razz:
