(SUG) Allow music intros
« on: June 17, 2023, 06:00:36 PM »
I'd like to request Music track intros...

Superlemmini added this feature a while back to allow music intros. If the music track is insanity.ogg you could add intro_insanity.ogg and superlemmini would play the intro one time before starting the main track.

This works easily and can really change the music when the intro is larger.

Do you mean an in-game intro track, or music for the preview screen/menus?

NeoLemmix supports this, just with a different method of implementing it; and I would be extremely surprised if anything's changed in this regard in SuperLemmix.

For how to do it, see this tutorial on doing so for RPG Maker; it's done exactly the same in NeoLemmix. Note that this is only supported for OGG (not MP3 or WAV etc). On a side note, such OGG files work in Loap too.

3D Lemmings: Loap (engine) | L3DEdit (level / graphics editor) | L3DUtils (replay / etc utility) | Lemmings Plus 3D (level pack)

Thanks namida, I can confirm that SuperLemmix indeed hasn't changed the way the engine handles music at all.

So yes, it seems that if you have Audacity it's already possible to create .ogg music files that are capable of looping to/from a particular position, which enables them to have an "intro" portion, then a looped portion. Such files will also play as intended in others' copy of the game as well.

I've closed this topic as resolved, but I've created a new one here for music in the main menu, in case anyone would also like to see this.
