  1. A tool that can edit the game's playlist would be nice, particularly to fix how badly the jukebox is implemented as of now. Also, I could drool by imagining the possibility to play house-specific tracks, expand the playlist, etc... As for the broken music player, I'm sure you have all experienced it, it involves playing a wrong music file when you select one (http://forum.dune2k....the-music-file/), which makes two themes hidden to the user and only available when they're played randomly during the game. I'm aware that a tool like this wouldn't be worth the effort because you can just play music externally, though.
  2. Hello, There's something that has been bugging my OCD compulsions for quite a long time: the ingame music selector plays the wrong music when you choose to play a specific track after Land of Sand on the list. From what i've found, the jukebox doesn't function correctly because it references every file in data\music alphabetically, and that folder also contains OPTIONS.AUD and SCORE.AUD, causing the following tracks to be played instead of the intended ones: Plotting -> OPTIONS.AUD (breaks the list) Robotix -> PLOTTING.AUD Rise of Harkonnen -> RISEHARK.AUD (this is unintentionally fixed due to the fact that Robotix is listed before RISEHARK.AUD) The Soldiers Approach -> SCORE.AUD (breaks it again) Spice Scouting -> SOLDAPPR.AUD Under Construction -> SPICESCT.AUD UNDERCON.AUD, WAITGAME.AUD cannot be selected. You can appreciate it better in the following screenshot: This can be fixed with a brute force method by deleting/moving OPTIONS.AUD and SCORES.AUD, but then those themes will not play during the main menu and score screen because they won't be found. Note that RISEHARK.AUD and ROBOTIX.AUD need to be renamed and their filenames swapped because they're listed on the wrong order on the playlist. I've read a couple of threads that mention the issue (http://forum.dune2k.com/topic/20608-name-of-the-music-file/) but apparently this problem is not present for everyone? I've experienced it for more than 10 years now and on several computers and install sources of the game. Take gruntlord's installation package, for example. Now that i'm seeing a resurge of interest in modding d2k, are there any insights on how could this be fixed? Maybe by modding the list and adding references to each specific file, or by allowing OPTIONS.AUD and SCORE.AUD to be read from another folder?
