How to use/install sounds
« on: December 30, 2019, 02:40:48 pm »
I have downloaded some sound packages.

They are located here (Debian 10 GNU/Linux):

~/.local/share/openxcom/sounds/Cydonias Fall Soundtrack
~/.local/share/openxcom/sounds/UFO Original Remastered


But I openxcom do not use this sounds nor I can do something about soundtrack in the settings.

1. You can either put the OGG/FLAC/etc. files into the original SOUND subfolder (in the UFO folder).

2. Or you can package them as mods, with the following structure:

<openxcom user folder>/mods/YourModName
<openxcom user folder>/mods/YourModName/metadata.yml
<openxcom user folder>/mods/YourModName/SOUND/<put all sound files here>
