Okay... I have done this before but now that I want to add more music, I'm having problems...

Okay... I originally had 4 soundtrack songs that were played in my module and they played just fine. What I did was I had this CD ripping program that would take it from the CD and convert it into an MP3. Problem is, I didn't like doing this because every time I would run that buggy as all hell program, it would crash my computer *THEN* work, for each song. So it was a severe pain in the ass....

Well anyway, now RealOnePlayer has come along. I have the upgraded version of it and it lets you convert ANY media file into an MP3. So when I have my soundtracks saved into ROP, it saves them as a ROP data file. Then, when I choose to convert it, it saves it as an MP3... no problem, right?

Well, now I am in my 'ambientmusic' file adding these according to the list... song X is number 56, song Y is number 57, and continuing on down the list... well I have added about 35 total MP3s to my mod now and converted the MP3s into BMU files via a small program someone on the boards showed me. Now none of these new files work! I unloaded and reloaded the hak, I saved the hak file over the old one, I looked over the ambient music file time and time again and tried EVERYTHING in my power to fix the problem... it just doesnt play any sound! The old ones will still work! But remember, the old ones were from the CD burn thingy, not ROP. So I was curious, could it be ROP that is not converting them right, or what? Because that would be WHACK if it was ROP... doesn't make ANY sense!!!!

There is a simple way to check if it's the bmus or not, replace some of the normal music files with the bmus you made, and then run the game, making SURE that you are somwhere where you should hear the music(the easiest would just be the main theme), so try that, and if the bmus are NOT screwed up, I have no idea what has happened.

Okay... as an update, I used the original program instead of realplayer and it still doesn't work. I also used RealOnePlayer to convert the originals too and overrided the old ones, and they still work fine... but for SOME reason the others just don't want to work! I replaced the hak and everything.... but it's still not working.... it's so weird.

have you checked whether they're mono or stereo? Background music is in stereo, sounds are in mono. Think it wont play either if they're wrong.  Reply with quote

Nope- Isn't that. I swear to god I have tried everything. I replaced the numbers, checked the files, edited and removed the hak number times, reburned the files, EVERTHING! Nothing seems to work EXCEPT what I had in there before!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well see, I know exactly and 100% how to do it.. done it before and now I'm just trying to add more to it. I have both edited and totally remade the 2da file but it does not want to work. I have switched around numbers and EVERYTHING... my guess is its somehow the files.. they just don't want to play for some reason. I will try one more thing and if it doesn't work... I'm stooped.
