the ompa ompa music thats ingame has already made a large hole in my head, and i want some new music!

the problem is just that when i put it in the samples\menu folder and name it ru.wav , i start up the game but the only thing happening is that the first ca.5 secs of the music repeats, repeats and repeats itself, it doesnt move on!

is there some kind of limitations?

please i need YOUR help http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/52.gif

make sure the new ru.wav is really a .wav. I did this and changed all my menu music (to Black Sabbath). But I found that I got slow loading menu's, so I changed it back

Try downloading the RAF-campaign. The ingame musick will be replaced by RAF radio-chatter.

Make sure that your wav file is the same format as the default wav files. They should be:
MPEG Layer-3 56 kBit/s, 24,000 Hz, Stereo
Also the default wavs are short; if you put a 3 minute song in there, it will slow the menu down whilst it is loaded.

You can convert any wav file to this format using Microsoft's 'Recorder accessory' which comes with most Windows operating systems (run 'sndrec32.exe' if you don't have a link to it in your 'StartMenu>entertainment' folder).
Once SoundRecorder is loaded:
-open your wav file using file>open
-select file>properties
-choose 'all formats' and click 'convert now'
-choose the correct format and attributes from the choices given.
-Click OK.
-Save the file. Either use 'file>save', or close SoundRecorder and click 'yes' when prompted to save.

Alternatively, just turn the menu music off in the 'sound set-up' screen.

You can also use an excellent extraction/conversion tool called 'CDex'. Use 'Google' to find it.

Just convert the file to .mp3 using the format Antifreeze has said, and add a riff-wav header to it using CDex. Put the file in the proper folder with the proper name, and that's all.

This guy put together a great music pack, but his site is gone. I've still got all the .WAVs tho.
