How do I add music to a map?
« on: April 22, 2010, 11:07:06 AM »
How do I add music like Clones or the TF theme in a map like Matthead did with DM_Skybase? I've looked pretty much everywhere, but no matter what I do, I can't get a song to play, only sounds...will someone please help me?

This tutorial was on the killing floor site

kfmod.php?page=tutorial-m1

The RC site and the KF site are soon to be merged.

Level Properties > BattleEngine > Battlemusic

Is how Matthead set his.

You could use the music trigger as well, if you wanted it to change depending on where the player is.

Music in Killing Floor is handeled alot different than in RC.
This is my super cool signature, if you think you can best it then make one and Personal Message it to me. :)

I put the music in battlemusic before, and I did it again, but no music is playing.

I figured this out (a while a go)thanks to a friend, I thought it was more complicated, as things in UnrealEd seem complictaed to do things, so I overlooked the most simple and obvious way to add music to your map. You all probably know how to do this by now. Sorry to waste your time. Add a sound to a static mesh.

I think I heard somewhere that you can by downloading this one music converter thing. I'm not sure if you can without the music converter, I'll try to figure that out because I think that DM_Rhen Var goes well with Side of a Bullet...

I know... That's why I added music to a static mesh. Try re-installing RC, and just wait for it to install, and don't do anything in the background if that's what you did when installing it.

To add music to a SM: Add a static mesh to your map. Right-click it and go into it's actor properties. there is a bar/ tab thing that is called "sound" click on that. copy what ever sound from rc that you want(in the sound tab), and paste it into the sound thing in the static mesh. Sorry, I'm not very good at giving directions...

I'm not so sure. When I export sounds from Unreal, its mp3 format.

EDIT: then again, maybe it takes both.
