Have a mac and need help

Post by Kharn »

I tried that drop ogg application for the mac and all it says is Error for every file type i try to create.

I have 2 mp3 songs and one midi song.

they are at rgarner.freeshell.org/music.zip

if anyone could convert those to .ogg files that would work on wesnoth it would be much appreiciated.

After you change them tell me where i can get them online or just make it an attachment.

Thanks.

Audacity can convert music to ogg format, and it's free.

More help

I sat there and converted them all to ogg vorbis files succesfully using Audicity application for the mac. Then I put them into the music folder of wesnoth package and changed multiplayer.cfg so that it says the name of my ogg file instead of the old wesnoth-2.ogg and when I started up a new game in wesnoth it would not play sound for any of the races that i changed the song for.

Can anyone give me suggestions why?

Do I need to change something other than multiplayer.cfg? is there a limit to song size or a paticiular sound quality I need to convert at? Does it have to do with the default application that opens the ogg file, cuz i tried both audicity and wesnoth. And when I run the game it still wont make sound.

What settings did you use to encode it? I have created ogg sounds for the game before, but I play them with the sound tag, not as a music piece. They come with the Liberty campaign. I don't remember the encoding settings, but I know they were low. Mono 8 or 16 bit I think.

Note for those curious - you don't need to download his music to hear it - it's just the music that Howard Shore composed for the movies.


Obviously, this can't be used for anything uploaded to the campaign server - best of luck on your mod, kharn, but we can't officially support it because of copyright issues.

You don't seem to understand that 1337ing the names isn't enough to avoid copyright violation if the plot is ripped...

It's basically like doing "Shakespeares Romeo and Juliet" as opposed to .. Emilio Esteban's "Romeo and Juliet" He's not infringing on a copyright, he's just making a tribute to the movies and the books through a game.

Anything by Shakespeare isn't copyrighted. The copyrights have all expired on old works. The guy who wrote this music is still alive.

And that guy would be Tolkien, and Tolkien's estates still have copyright on all of his work...

No matter how you look at it, you are either infringing the copyright of Howard Shore, Peter Jackson, or Christopher Tolkien. All that really matters is, you are infringing on SOMEONE's copyright, and could thus extremely easily be sued.

Whether you are making money or not is irrelevant to whether he is able to sue you, IIRC.
