[Tutorial] How to add custom Background Music to your Theme

Post by ordi » Tue Oct 06, 2015 11:26 pm

Hi!

First of all, this tutorial is not about making your own theme, it's only about adding custom BGM to your theme, so here we go:

Requirements:
- at9tool: http://pastebin.com/rVuYqzLE
- Audacity
- Notepad++

1. At first get the music file that you want to use for your theme. (duh)

2. Open the music file in Audacity--> set the Project Rate (Hz) to 44100 if it isn't already-->
select File>Export Audio, choose file type ''WAV (Microsoft) signed 16-bit PCM'' and for
simplicity we call our file ''BGM''.

3. Put at9tool.exe and BGM.wav in the same folder--> open CMD in this folder (in Windows 7
and newer versions simply press and hold Shift + right click and choose ''Open
command window here'')--> now type in (or copy and paste) this command:

Code: Select all

at9tool -e -br 144 -wholeloop BGM.wav BGM.at9
and press enter-->
there should now be a file called BGM.at9 in the folder.

4. Put BGM.at9 in your theme folder--> open theme.xml with Notepad++ --> edit the path for
the background music, so it looks like this:

5. Install your Custom Theme and that's it! :)

For example this is YeeRMaaN's pretty cool Pacman Theme (https://mega.nz/#!hsQixJIK!hcpa9iJu_aV- ... 5brDEsOino) with the pretty annoying Pacman music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygQx9gBAIdI ;)

Thanks, I'm glad you like it! :D

I'm not sure though why it doesn't seem to work with all of the themes, I only tested it with the Pac-man theme and Freakler's Black XMB theme so far and it worked on both.
