Multiple main menu music?

#1 Post by quacksapup » Sun Mar 30, 2014 5:13 pm

Hey guys,

Is it possible to change the default music just like you can change the main menu background? I have multiple backgrounds for when more characters role in, and each background has its own music. Also, is there a way to save the music box settings so that the default song doesn't always play each time the game is opened/you return to the main menu?

1- Yes, you can use something like this:

Code: Select all

init python:
    if persistent.completed_game:
        config.main_menu_music = "End.ogg"
        config.main_menu_music = "Day.ogg"
That's an example from my own game. You cam mess with variables as you like.

2- IIRC, you can get rid of the "On replace/On replaced" bits of the music room code to do that.
