Map music won't work no matter what I do
« on: August 10, 2017, 05:02:05 AM »
I've tried renaming the file, replacing the file, switching the file out for a different song,

But absolutely nothing I do will seem to get the music working! What am I doing wrong???

Make sure its a usable format, I believe the prefered format is OGG but of course there are others that work such as MP3.

And make sure the song name isn't too long. I believe the file name can only be 8 characters.

If you have the song playing through the "MAPINFO" file, make sure its set up correctly there.
Heres an image of what it should look like. This is Chargeman's stage.
Spoiler for Hiden:
I'm using Slade atm.
The "CHAMUS" file is the song name so yours should be whatever you named your song.

Yes, the music is exactly the way you have it. Everything on the map is set up the way it should be... and no matter what music files I try, I just simply cannot get the music to play within the map.

Music needs to go in a wad file or in the music folder of the pk3.

The map is in fact a WAD file, in which the music is in.

It seems like the only way to explain it is if I upload it for other people to look at.

It would be easier if we could see it, if you could supply us with pictures or the WAD itself, that would make it easier for us to identify the problem.

It's because you completely broke the structure of the WAD file. WAD files have special markers and things need to be in a particular order or else everything breaks. Here is how the contents should look.

Oh, well now... You learn something new everyday. I always put stuff in an order I thought looked nice, guess that order just worked. Thanks for the information, I'll need to keep an eye out for stuff like that myself.
