A Question

Unread postby Impractic_Shiki » April 30th, 2007, 4:56 pm

I apologize if this is a stupid question, but I just decided to try the game now. It's not really an error either (or maybe it is).

I was wondering when does the in-game music actually occur. Is it only during certain scenes?

I've only played the game a bit; I've only heard a ticking sound effect in the doctor's office. There wasn't anything during the entire opening sequence with Shiki's sensei, for example. Does it only play at crucial moments?

Because, I followed the read-me, and I was curious since I don't play too many import games.

The best way to check if your music is working is to listen in the main menu of the game. If no music is playing, there is something wrong with your music files. As stated in the readme, you need to rip the CD-DA music yourself, name them track01.ogg through track10.ogg and place them in the CD subdirectory of the folder where you installed Tsukihime English.

There is also a lot of time in game when you don't have music at all, so, it's normal...

As it was said, check if you have music in the game menu.

There isn't any music at the main menu either.

The ogg files will play in the Core Media Player but not Itunes.

-------------------------
I followed these instructions so I'm at a bit of a loss:

For ripping CD-DA to ogg files, we recommend using CDex:
http://cdexos.sourceforge.net/
After you download and install it, click Options / Settings
and under the tab 'Filenames' select an output directory
for your music files. Then select the drive where your CD
is located under the 'CD Drive' tab.
Next, go to the Encoder tab and choose the Ogg Vorbis DLL
Encoder as your encoder. Click OK, select all audio tracks
and click Convert / Extract CD Track(s) to a Compressed
Audio File.

Once you have converted your CD-DA music to ogg, rename the
files to 'track01.ogg' through 'track10.ogg' and move them
to the subdirectory called 'CD' in your game directory.
Remember to delete your mp3 files if you used mp3 music in
a prior version of Tsukihime English.

---------------------------

Would ripping them another way work?

Do you have file extensions hidden? if so that's probably your problem ^_^. It seems to be very common, try renaming the files without the ogg extension and starting again, or checking to make sure you dont have them hidden.

The file extensions were hidden, but it worked once I showed them. It was pretty awesome to load up the game and get hit by that blast of music. ^_^

*bows*

Thank you all for your help and yours in particular Sparky.

....and thanks to all for translating such a great game. I'll try and post more here. I don't want to feel like a leech just showing up for one question. ^^;

Even the standard music track for Tsukihime is pretty nice. I have it loaded in my playlist at work. "Hey, that's nice. What is it?" "Oh, background music from a game..."

I don't have the heart/haven't been mean enough to tell my coworkers it's BGM from an H game... :lol:

Yeah, it's amazing what people will say they like before they know what it is.

But yeah, the music is nice. Especially the anime music.

I am starting to think there should be a sticky topic that says if you have sound problems try *this* =p since most problems come down to the hidden file extensions

I didn't know so many people still used the hide extension 'feature' (read: bug) in Windows... I will add it to the readme for the next version.

I imagine it would be helpful since little error tidbits tend to come in all varieties for products involving games. At the very least, someone else will appreciate it when they come face-to-face with the same bug.
