I'd like to have Star Wars music playing in the backround. When I played AOE2, unitentionally it would play Billy Joel mp3's that I had previously ripped. I never knew how this happened at least I know this is possible. Anyone have a clue?:atat:

1) Open whatever media player
2) Set it to "Play"
3) Start GB. It'll play in the background.

I'll have to try it with my ANH soundtrack.

Well, i remeber in this one demo i played i had a music CD in the ROM, and whenever i would boot up the demo the CD would automaticly play. I think its cause every game is programed to boot up the CD for the reading while the game loads, but since the demo had no CD and it would load ANYTHING thinking it was the loading disk.

Phew!:o

I'd like to say I thought of it, but I didn't. I want to use as few resources as possible, so I'd rather the game find it.

I'll have to try just putting a music CD in the CD-ROM. Come to think of it, I may have been using a no-cd crack with AOE2- that might explain it. Thanks.

A diferent way would be to copy the mp3 into your taunt section and name it a number that isnt there yet so that in the game you could just press that number and it would play the song.

Ex.
1- rename a mp3 "50" and put it in your "taunts" folder

2- go into the game

3- press Enter to bring up the chat menu and press the taunt, in this case being "50" to play the mp3

I have done it it works fine, but don't press another taunt at the same time or they will both play at the samr time.
