Some custom music tracks not playing
« on: March 28, 2015, 11:06:59 am »
I figured I'd stick some of my own music into the game for the hell of it, so I converted the tracks I need into ogg files. They all play perfectly outside the game. In the game however, all of them work except for GMTACTIC2 - GMTACTIC4 and GMINTER2 - GMINTER4. Any time I enter battlescape, only GMTACTIC plays, same for the interception music.

Now I'm not sure what the issue is but it should be working, the music plays properly (and to double check I even re-labelled the tracks to check if the files were fine) and they're given the correct names according to the wiki. Anyone know what the deal is?

you'll need to add the interception ones into the music.rul file at least

Awesome, I had the milestone version so I didn't see that file but I downloaded the nightly (while I was doing this the mods and the game didn't agree with each other so I managed to totally break my game, fixed it now though by deleting options.cfg) did as you said and now all tracks work great. Thank you very much sir!

Just as a side note, would anyone know where to get the Alien Remix mod? My save had it but I can't seem to find it anywhere.

Alien Remix mod has been removed since it was integrated on the UFO Redux mod. But if you need it, I've attached it below.

I took the tracks I wanted to use, renamed them and put them in the sound folder. This link here should help; https://www.ufopaedia.org/index.php?title=Audio_Options_%28OpenXcom%29#Custom_Music
