How do you turn a regular music file into a doom main menu song? I don't know how to do this, are the songs just a common format or its own unique format? Please post how you would go about changing the file to playability as a doom main menu song.

Firstly, you need to open the .pk4 files using pk4scape from [COLOR="Blue"]here[/COLOR]

The music, as well as the sounds, are all .ogg audio files. You'll be needing the codecs from [COLOR="Blue"]http://www.vorbis.com/[/COLOR] to play the files.

Then, open pak003.pk4, go to sound\musical and there it is. d3theme.ogg.

If you have any queries, just ask. ;)

But do NOT change the any pakxxx.pk4 file in base or d3xp folders, instead you can make another .pk4 file with another higher name like pak300.pk4 and make a folder inside them sound and onother inside sound named musical and into this folder you can put some .ogg music file named d3theme.ogg, ok.

Make backups always, and better do this in another folder, not in base, and in the mainmenu click the mods list and select your mod named the same as your folder created for your mod, ok !

If however, your music file is not in .ogg format, you will need to convert it.

I suggest you use [COLOR=Blue]audacity[/COLOR], and open your file and then go the file menu and select export as ogg vorbis
