View Full Version : Changing loading Music?

15-05-2004, 09:29 PM
Hi all

I was incredibly bored this afternoon and decided to have a look around the program files folder and found The Sims Superstar folder. I also found the "Music" folder, and found a longer, nicer version on the loading music, and decided to have the extended version as the loading music.

How would I go about doing this? I tried renaming the extended version "loadloop.wav" (that's what the default one's called) and replaced the old file with the new one, but when I fired up the sims there wasn't any music whatsoever. Luckily, I had the brains to have a backup of the original, and have since changed it back to the default, so is there a way of changing the mucis that at least works?

Thanks :)

If it helps, I'm running The Sims off an Alcohol 52 DVD drive

Was the file the original in the first place?

The new version is an MP3, I renamed it as a .wav and it had a warning about the file becoming unstable.

You can't rename from MP3 to .WAV. Thats what the warning was telling you. (well, you can do it, as you proved, but it will not work)

Different formats. Use a program to convert .MP3 to .WAV.

dbPower Amp works fine.
