XCOM PS1 music renaming
« on: February 16, 2016, 06:23:27 pm »
Please forgive me if this is not the correct place to ask.

I just ripped the 12 music tracks from my UFO Defense PS1 disc, and I wanted to know how should I go about renaming the files for use in OpenXcom.

This is what I have, as you may already know, there is no Track01 because that would be the PS1 data track.



Thanks in advance!!

This is probably what you look for.

However, someone has already put up a mod with the PS music:

YES thank you, however in the end I just listened to the MIDI files and replaced them with their equivalent.

I didn't know I could add more geoscape songs so I'll probably do that now.

Hey, I'm sorry for dredging up an old forum post but I thought it was relevant since I cannot find the original playstation xcom music mod anywhere now that the openxcom link is down in 2022. 
I've found the mp3 files for the PSX music, converted them to OGG files and got them working in openxcom but there's no sound effects so I thought asking here maybe someone knew of a working link that included the music.

I tried clicking on the openxcom.com/mods/playstation music link but it's long dead. 

Even just the music would be great because despite getting the .ogg files to work the geoscape music seems to play only the first Geoscape1 music soundtrack file when I run openxcom.  I'm not sure if it's random and I am getting bad RNG but I miss the PSX version playing songs 1-4 of the Geoscape music tracks which gave you a nice lengthy soundtrack to listen to. 

I think with the way I have openxcom set up the mod just keeps playing the same geoscape song which definitely sucks (it says any new songs are randomized in the music editing instructions on the wiki but I cannot get that to work).  Not sure how I can create a playlist or randomize the songs, and the sound effects editing seems a bit complicated when maybe someone still has the PSX music+SFX mods somewhere to download.

Any help would be amazing, thank you!

Edited because it sounded like I didn't know how to type, lol.

A new game always starts with the first music track, it's randomized afterwards.

You can find the old PSX mods here: https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,6155.0.html
