View Full Version : New music

This may have been asked before, but a search didn't reveal it to me.
Is it possible to add or change the background music in DoP, and what formats are supported?

I desperately want to have Ride of the Valkyries (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ride_of_the_Valkyries) on when I start a war. ;)

The music format used is ogg which is fairly popular these days.

There's not much control of when the music is played currently, but you can change the theme music by either adding a new music ogg file named Music/theme.ogg or you can change the database parm ThemeMusicName in systems.gdb.

Am I understanding correctly that it only plays through one file?

Yes, currently the only place that plays music is in the menus or in town so all it will play is the one piece of music. Technically if you wanted to replace the background sounds, you could have a different piece of music per zone though.

Cool, thanks.
