howto select between different sounds
« on: August 14, 2015, 02:52:44 pm »
Hi,
I "installed" two new sounds-sets to the data/sound-folder.

UFO: Cydonia’s Fall Soundtrack (as OGG-files)
and
X-COM OST Remastering (as FLAC 16bit files)

How can I select between this two and the original sound-set? In the Sound-menu I only can select between the sound-format. Because of this three sets have three different formats it isn't the problem. But I am not really sure (because of my ear *fg*) which one of the sets is openxcom using.

the music format you select in the audio menu is the "preferred" music. if a selected track doesn't exist in that format, it may revert to a different one.

So there is no way to use different sound-sets with the same format?

there IS but it will require playing around with the music.rul file (adding a few entries)

Why not install them as mods? And enable/disable as required. Since the new mod structure, this is easy...

Can you explain or link that please?

You mean "new" with the unstable/nightly builds or even the current stable?

The current stable (v1.0) does not support this.

You need a nightly build, at least from June 2015... but I would recommend the latest one.
