I have some very good music from a composer on the web and I am going to try to make a music mod for TSL. I was just wondering if anyone has done something like this before. Is it as simple as replacing the wave files in the 'streaming music' folder? Thanks!

P.S. Go to www.edgen.com if you want to hear some of the composer's music.

Yes, it is simple replacing sounds in StramSounds. But be careful: make sure to give them the same names, or game will not understand. I don't know but if you want to export some original music from TSL you will need to decode it by RAD tools. Using music in game without any modification of it is illegal (As I remember.).

If you plan on releasing his mod to the public I would suggest contacting the composer and asking their permission. If you just use it to make your mod its kinda illegal and I'm pretty sure your thread would be closed for that. If you do have the persons permission or just want to make a personal mod then what Lit said is right, just change the names of the files to match the ones in streaming music folder.

Thanks for the feedback guys. I am going to ask the composer for permission first and if he says no I will just use it as a personal mod. Hopfully he will say yes though, because it is some great music and I think it would really change the mood for TSL. Anyway, thank you both very much for the help and advice.

The mod is coming along well, I already have Peragus and citadel station fully modded. I've still got a long way to go (The game has 49 songs) but I am making good progress. I will be combining this with an extra content mod I am working on now.

Sounds good. So you will replace the music in TSL with music from the Star Wars movies?

Hmmm, judging by the quality of the music on that website, I must say...

Holy Freaking Crap O_o

I just might get back into Kotor 2 if you finish this mod! =D

No, as Torthane stated in his first post, he will be changing the music to music from this website: www.edgen.com

Update: I have changed the music all the way up to Duxun and Onderon, Nar Shadda has also been moded. Should be done pretty soon althought I'm afraid I will have to reuse a few of the songs. Once I get all of the songs done I will ask the composer's permission and if he's cool with it I will post it for general download. I also might throw in some small reskins, some extra equipment at the biggining of the game, and a GOTO mod (Changes GOTO to a confused android with new dialogue and equipment.) But if the xtra content is taking awhile I will release the music mod on its own. Estimated release date: should be ready before July 20th. More updates on the way.

Update: I am very nearly done with this mod. All of the battle tracks have been changed and I only have a few ambient and theme tracks left. Should be done in a couple of days, but unfortunatly the mod size will be about 150 mb. I will post again when the mod is done.
