Add new or additional music?

Post by Whiplash »

Hi all,

First post here, but I have been playing and enjoying OpenRA for many years.

The release of C&C Remastered got me wondering. Is there any way to add music to the OpenRA playlist other than by importing from the original .MIX files? It would be great to get the full remastered OST into OpenRA.

Thanks in advance.

Anything? If the answer is "No" or "Not yet", that's OK. I would just like to know.

"It's doable but the audio files need to match a very specific format; they can be referenced from the mod's music.yaml and will need to be in one of the loaded directories, like bits or the support dir"

I'm quoting penev from the openRA discord. Might be able to get a more detailed answer there.

That's great, thank you for the feedback. I will poke around in the game files and ask on the Discord chat if I need more help.
