Post news RSS How to install and get music working

This is how to install the music to most mods. Note that some mods don't just name Menu.mp3 ect.. but you should still be able to see what's what while looking in the XML file.

Step 1:

Download the music pack

Step 2a:

Go to C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Empire At War Forces of Corruption\Mods\(Mod Name)\Data\Audio\Music

Step 2b:

Steam users go to----> C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Star Wars Empire at War\corruption\Mods\(Mod Name)Data\Audio\Music

Step 3:

Copy and paste the Mp3 file's to the Music folder shown from Step 2

Step 4a:

Use an XML editor (for example I used Notepad) and open C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Empire at War Forces of Corruption\Mods\(Mod Name)\Data\XML\MUSICEVENTS

Step 4b:

Steam users go here---> C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Star Wars Empire at War\corruption\Mods\(Mod Name)\Data\XML\MUSICEVENTS

[After opening the XML file mentioned from Step 4, you should see something like this]

<MusicEvent Name="Main_Menu_Music_Event">
		<Files>Menu.MP3</Files>
        <Volume_Percent>80</Volume_Percent>
        <Fade_In_Seconds>0.0</Fade_In_Seconds>
        <Fade_Out_Previous_Seconds>2.0</Fade_Out_Previous_Seconds>
        <Loop>Yes</Loop>
    </MusicEvent>

Step 5:

Menu.mp3 <-- This is the menu music. Take the mp3 track you want as your menu music and rename that to Menu.mp3 and that will now become your menu song (Not all mods have the same naming scheme!) ---You could also edit Menu.MP3 to be the name of your song you want to play. Just copy and pase its name.It would look like this--- Badass_Score.MP3

Step 6:

Launch and enjoy!
