Changing menu music
« on: 10-09-2014, 19:09:56 »
Recently I was messing with a lot of functions of BF2, and trying to mod stuff. I can say I progressed more than I ever did. But some points really got me stuck and changing the menu music is one of them.

I read a few tutorials, and I learned that it has to be a .ogg file. So I converted it from .wav to .ogg. So far, I couldnt get it to play in the menu. Then, I found out that it should be 44kHz. for that, I used a program called Bink Audio-Video Tools. (dont know if I actually managed to do it though) Yet, it still did not work.

Anyone know the proper way to do this? Or any programs you're gonna suggest?

Cheers

There is a custom tool for this in the fh2 folder under "tools".

So there is a folder called "tools"? Im afraid that's not present in EA GAMES/ Battlefield 2/ mods/ fh2 folder if that's the one you're talking about.

Or much simpler:

Use this tool by bergekiller, drag your file into the window and save as .ogg (Menu Music).
I do bad things to the BF2 engine.

I DID IT! Thank you Aserafimov and TS4Ever for your help :)

Now my menu plays footage from the Turkish Armed Forces demonstration clip and plays a rock cover of the most famous march of the Ottoman Military band which fits in very well. I have a feeling that this mod is going to turn out very nice  :)

Thanks again.

Only in your own mod I'm afraid.
