MP3 support in Tribes?

Post by Groove » Thu May 16, 2013 4:48 pm

So i was poking through the files in Greyhounds ScriptGL for 1.4, and one of the DLL's he uses is devil.dll

found the website for devil.dll http://openil.sourceforge.net/

and one of its features is loading MP3 - can this be used somehow?

One of the ideas i had was to include the original Tribes Soundtrack in MP3 and make some kind of script/mod that would play the soundtrack files linked to the different maps, just like the original tribes did if you had the CD in the drive

anyone know if this is possible, and if so maybe would be willing to point me in the right direction on how to do it? i have the soundtrack in MP3 and some free time :P

alternatively, could we just use the .ogg support in 1.4 and convert the soundtrack to .ogg? i guess then it would just be a matter of a script that loaded the particular track on whatever map

heh ok i figured that out, convert to .ogg, hook remoteSetMusic, and use localSound to play .ogg soundtrack file, works =)

but using localsound you can't control the volume of the music relative to the other sounds - any ways to do that?

(darn there was a thread in the revival forum about this - with a file link that's dead - anyone still have it?)

Yah, that's really love cool. I've been wanting to have this for ages - Play tribe with original sound track. Once you have something worked out, please share :browsmile:

Not that I play tribe like I used to, but still. I believe one day tribe will be revived and we'll have 1000 players online :cat:
