Thread: Playing music in EU3

  1. #1

    Playing music in EU3

    This apparently doesn't really differ between IN, HTTT and DW, though I may be wrong.

    Whatever, I know you can add music by putting MP3 in the Music folder. What seems weird to me is that many tracks seem to never play, and others to play all the time.
    Or to put it simply: I have the feeling only something like 30 music tracks can play in EU3, as if the game picked them all the time - either because their first in alphabetical order, or because they're latest additions into the folder, or last created music files (or some other weird ranking I can't deduce).

    Is it just me that doesn't notice Falalalalan anymore (since I put EU2 music into the EU3 folder), but just Bach, or is it something well-known (as is probably the case), that the game doesn't play your full playlist if you put 200+ MP3 files in the Music folder?

    I put the FtG soundtrack to EU3, and all, including Falalan, play fine. That's not over 200 though.

    The EUIII music system seems to be really bad at randomising playlist orders. It's possible that it only expects a specific number of tracks to be present in the music folder.

    Why would you use EU3's built in media player, when you can use an external, superior one?

    Just turn off music in EU3, and use your music player of choice playing your playlist of choice in the background.

    but yes it is less hassle to have external program to play your music ...
