How To

How do I play music for my game?

Yes, this is another question about my new style game. I wanted to know how I start my song that I made in my game. If you know how please comment down below, I’ve tried the MUSIC command but the song won’t start.

Make sure you created patterns in the song file and set the loop start and loop end markers if you want repeating music. And don't forget to save it ;)
Then the MUSIC command should work.

Post an update to your game so i can see what you have so far :)

Will do!

DJMoffinz 2019-10-28 21:50

I’ll check that.

But where do I put the “flags”, and how? Is it code? Or in the sound editor?

was8bit 2019-10-29 06:50 (Edited)

In Sound Composer, you see the DISK icon at the upper right corner... the next 3 buttons to its left are, SOUND edit, TRACK edit, and PATTERN edit....

SOUND edit of course edits different sounds
TRACK edit allows you to add different notes and such to a track
PATTERN edit lets you arrange different tracks in a certain order

While in PATTERN edit you will see (below the disk button) 3 symbols... a right pointing arrow, a left pointing arrow, and a square...

If want a pattern to stop play when it is finished then tap these until the SQUARE is lit
If you want a pattern to play one track forever, then tap these until BOTH arrows are lit

If you want a pattern to go back to a previous track, then tap these until the LEFT POINTING ARROW is lit..
... then go back to a previous pattern where you want the "go back" to start playing again and tap these until the RIGHT POINTING ARROW is lit..

Ahh, I see now, thank you so much for explaining! I’m still getting used to the sound composer but I think I’ve got the hang of it now! Ur the best.

DJMoffinz 2019-10-29 07:05

Wait does lit mean it’s white or green?

Glad to be of some help :) i cant really compose much but i fiddle around abit with it ;)

DJMoffinz 2019-10-29 07:20

Thanks but the MUSIC command still doesn’t work, idk what number to put after it.

Assuming you are working on the music in your snake program, just upgrade your snake program with your music file and i can better help...

Timo 2019-10-29 07:23

It’s the number of the pattern where you want to start. Usually it’s 0 if you have only one song.

DJMoffinz 2019-10-29 07:34

@was8bit, Timo
Ok, thank you both for your help!

DJMoffinz 2019-10-29 07:34

The music is for the title screen btw though I’ll add it anyways.
