1 - beginner [LevelEdit] Add Music To Map

Recommended Posts

You can find a bunch of nice old CNC tracks on my website at zunnie.multiplayerforums.com

When you decide to use one of these on your map you must keep the filename exactly like it is there.

Why?: Some other maps already use this MP3. To keep a long story short: If you rename them then there may arise conflicts with other maps. So nonono.mp3 to renaming them.

Just use them on your map as they are.

Edit: In 4.1 and on renaming them won't matter. Still i'd leave them as they are :)

Let's get started:

(1)expand Sound, then (2)select Music and then (3)click the Temp button:


Give it a name, for this example it is Frank_Klepacki_Act_On_Instinct:


On the Settings tab now we configure the following options:

Filename - Browse for the MP3 file inside your Level Mapname folder

Drop-off Radius - 7000.000

Max-Vol Radius - 6000.000

m_Volume - 1.000

m_Priority - 1.000

All other settings are correct already and need no attention.


Now OK it all. Then (1)select the preset in your list and (2)click the "MAKE" button, a sound icon appears on your map.


It is best if you place this music icon in the center of your map.

If you have a large map you may need to adjust the Drop-off Radius and Max-Vol Radius to a higher number.

Have fun :)

The "loop count" box, is that the repeat function? I've noticed on Rigde, the music stops after only one play. IS that the right parameter to adjust to make the song keep repeating, or is it something else?

If you have multiple songs on a map (Carnage for example), is there any settings you'd have to adjust then to ensure a smooth transition of music from one area to the next?


I'm making a map with multiple tracks. I want one track in particular to be heard EVERYWHERE you go, but the others will only be heard in certain areas.

You'll have to play with the Drop-off Radius - 7000.000 and Max-Vol Radius - 6000.000 a bit, set it waaay lower and test ingame how far you can hear it.

Won't be possible to play a song through out the whole map and a different music in another part... you will still here them both (unless that is what you want -_- ). Carnage club uses the drop off/ max volume cleverly.. the main floor is the main song. and the back area is another area of sound.. 



And if the map i small keep the radius small! the sounds are in meters... i.e 15.00 is 15 meters radius of sound.

Yeah Mauler that is what I want. If you watch the video I posted in the Halloween topic, you will hear crickets, and howling ALL OVER, however in certain areas of the map you will hear music as well. In Level Editor it was a bit glitchy and sometimes every sound I had would play all at once haha.

      There is going to be a weekend tribute of sorts event held on the "zunnies OmegaAOW" renegade server.

      It is an old server mod that zunnie and his friends used to work on. Because of how old it is there may be some small bugs to live with, but @shaitan and I have done what we can to get it ready.
      During this time Newmaps,MutantCo-op and possibly other servers will be taken offline.
      IRC: irc.cncirc.net -or- irc.rencorner.com channel: #OmegaAOW
