: i am looking for a way to play mp3s, or another kind of music file in the background of my game. i need a command to start it and stop it. if there is one kind of music file that is used, please tell how i can convert mp3s and midis into them. thanx.
Probably not MP3. It has some very in depth encoding. Your best bet is either WAV files (very large, but high quality music/voice) or to use MOD files (good for music, better quality than MIDI and less space than WAV). I think I posted some code a few weeeks ago for playing music in the background.
