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

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.
