How do I insert custom music into Spore?

Unread postby ChrisTom » Wed Oct 20, 2010 9:46 pm

So I am a fan of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and was hoping to replace Journey of the Sorcerer, the main theme of HGTTG with the main menu theme or the secondary menu theme. I also considered replacing some of the current songs with the beta ones (maybe replace Primordial Soup for Dinner with Spacebound Sunbathing).

But my main question is, How do I do it? I've tried accessing the Package files through Sporemaster but for some reason it didn't work.

So Davo, what do I do? Thanks in advance.

With all regards,

-ChrisTom

ok, i did some research, the music files from spore are .ogg(maybe .oog?) files i believe, so they need to be converted to .mp3 to hear which ones are which.

reverse this and you have your answer.

-_- Yes... but I can't open the Audio file with Sporemaster or with WinRAR. That's one of my main problems.

I need to know;

How to open the Audio Files

That's really it.

How, exactly, are you trying to "open" an audio file?

Might sound like a stupid question, but I need to know exactly what programs you're using on what files.

Also, I doubt anyone here is a double-post nazi. So you're good.

I searched for it, but all I found was Davo's link to the 2.0 version.

Since he's running 2.2, he'd be the best person to answer your question.

Ok guys, first let me say thanks for all your help, it means alot.

Now I think I've located the source of the problem (it involves winRAR) but in order to thoroughly access these Audio files I would need to uninstall and reinstall Spore, and I honestly don't want to have to go through that again -_-

So Davo? Would it be possible to upload the "Clean" Audio Packages so that I could download them? I would really appreciate it. Thanks again.

-Tom

*facepalm*

No. Clean as in how it is when you install Spore. To be more precise, I was told to download a different winRAR to unpack the package files and when I did it converted them to some weird file thing. Now it could be possible to simply uninstall and reinstall Spore to get the original files, but I don't want to listen to my computer whirr for two hours. So now I need one of the clean files to tell all the other files to turn into it. Basically I just need to download the Spore Audio Package 1 and hopefully that will work.

*facepalm*
SPORE .PACKAGE FILE DO NOT OPEN IN WINRAR

THE ONLY WAY TO UNPACK AND PACK THESE SPECIFIC SPORE FILES IS USING SPOREMASTER'S 1-2

.PACKAGE FILES MAY COME IN A .ZIP OR .RAR

YOU ONLY NEED TO UNPACK THEM IN THAT CASE!!!!!!

THE SPORE FILES ARE TO BIG FOR ME TO UPLOAD!

Also, the copy and distribution of unmodified source files is illegal.

I'm sorry Davo I should've known better. And I was not aware that was illegal, but it is good to know. Oh well, thanks for helping me and I appreciate your time!
