Replacing the soundtrack of the demo

i jst wanted to know if there was any way to tamper with the sound file on the demo so i could have some wacky theme tune playin in the background. If someone could tell me in which folder to put the file in tht would be helpful thank u!

Thumbs up

OK well, you got me curious with this question myself. So after about 20 minutes of playing around, this is what I figured out.

Well, if you look in:
GameData\Data\Audio\SFX"

You will see 3 files:
SFX2D_English.MEG
SFX2D_Non_Localized.MEG
SFX3D_Non_Localized.MEG

I checked these first. I was able to use GoldWave to open them interperating as wav files, but all the sound runs too fast or too slow. I could definitely hear that they are all the voices and sound effects, but I'm not sure exactly how they are compressed. I opened as Raw PCM signed 32 bit, big endian stereo 96000Hz for the "Non-Localized" files (SFX) and little endian for the "English" (Dialog)

But the answer to your question is the "Music.meg" file located in:
GameData\Data

I didn't notice this file untill after I did what I mentioned above and went back to try and figure out what I missed.

Music.meg actually appears to be an Mp3 192 Kbps, 44100 Hz Stereo 63 min 8 sec, so it certainly should be easy enough to create a replacement. I would recomend using some kind of audio mixing software. The breaks that seperate parts in the music definitely are queues that are triggered by events in the game. I.E. when a battle begins you hear the "Tie Fighter Attack" theme. You might want to keep the time queue so it works well.

Good Luck
