Sourcecode: Main menu music issues (Solved)

#1 Post by WatchJessieGo » Thu Apr 05, 2012 8:52 pm

Alright, so I'm trying to get some music to play at the main menu, but it ain't really going well.

I went to options.rpy, found this code

Code: Select all

# config.main_menu_music = "main_menu_theme.ogg"
and changed main_menu_theme to the file that I wanted. The file is in the game directory, but for some reason, it does not play at the main menu. I tried using the play command, but it gives me an error message stating that "play requires a file." Does this have anything to do with the fact that I'm trying to use an .mp3 file?

I'm pretty stumped... Can anyone possibly help me? D:

Get rid of the # symbol.

Is it indented properly? (As in, is it in line with all the other options in the code?)

I used this code and all works good, so I only can be something like your name being wrong somewhere (big/small letters or space), or your directory, or the pattern (is your file an .ogg ? if not had you changed it in the code ?)

(On my side I tried to play multiple tracks (like both a water sound and a track) but that seems to be hard)

You use a mp3 file, but your filename ends with .ogg

Yeah, it's indented properly. The code currently looks like this:

Code: Select all

config.main_menu_music = "Earnest.mp3"
Does it need to be an .ogg file or something?

(Sorry if my questions seem a bit stupid, I'm just starting out learning to code...)

There shouldn't be any problems with using a .mp3 file - when you say the game directory do you mean directly in the game folder and not a folder within the game folder? Also, did you erase the space after deleting the #? Those could cause problems and would be why the music isn't playing.

You should explain what was your problem, think about the ones that will make the same mistake as you and read this topic, it could be an good help.

When backspacing to make it properly indented, I accidentally missed a space. ^^"
