[GUIDE] How to play custom music in Killing Floor

So, most of the UT2004 players know this, but UT2004 originally had a music player which you could open with F11. It would play Ogg files in a playlist of your choice. So basically, you could play your own music. And this is how I got it to work in KF with some knowledge of the UT2004 engine:

Open up User.ini in the system folder of Killing Floor, and change this:

Quote:
F11=
into this:

Quote:
F11=MusicMenu

And then press F11 anywhere in the game or menus. The GUI will be kind of buggy, though. Just hold your mouse over the buttons and the tooltips will tell you what it is. Kind of funny, Tripwire did work on the GUI, but abandoned it.

If anyone really wants it, I can provide screenshots of the UT2004 music manager, so you know what everything is and stuff.

Have fun managing playlists!

Probably around the time they found zYnthetic. Still, nice bit of info. Shame i have no .oggs, nor a converter.

wait... does this require downloading of any kind?

If so, can I get a link?

I'd also like to know any requirements (file restrictions and stuff)

EDIT: While in the ini file, I noticed the Sex=M thing... has anyone tried changing it to F?

As he said, you need .oggs or FLAC files. It doensn't require any downloading.

And honestly, what do you think the Sex thing will do? It's probably a leftover piece of code from the UT2.5 engine.
EDIT: I should probably answer this for you: M means more sex scenes while F means fewer sex scenes. I can't be the only one to have seen the Fleshpounding poster...i should probably leave it at that...

Well, it could be a way to finally get a new voice...

But probably not.

EDIT: Ok, I converted some songs to .ogg, but they still won't play.

"They won't play" isn't going to help. Did you actually convert them, or did you just rename them?

Also, the "Play" button tooltip is missing, it's the third button from the left. The one without a tooltip.

Super C freeware converter and one of the best at any price.

I'm not handicapped, I know renaming won't convert them.

I have a folder of em, and there all .ogg, but when I select them in game, they wont play (even when I hit play)

It has to be in a certain quality. I don't know which one. Also, KF's music volume is kind of low by default, and you might not hear your own music. The KF music slider only goes up to 0.50 instead of 1.00 like UT2004 did. If you open the files yourself, they're actually pretty loud. So make sure it's not just so soft you can't hear it.


But I think the bit rate has something to do with it. The music menu is very picky, and it WILL crash your game if you handle it wrongly.

This.

I used a free converter and ripped the Fallout3/New Vegas soundtracks and renamed them so I can listen to Kay Kyser and Dean Martin in Killing Floor.
