remove the "gladiatortheam" folder

The path must be like this: music/mp/duel.mp3

Unknown999 is right that other folder must go.

unless its top folder IE gladiatortheam/music/mp/duel.mp3

When packing up with winzip, you start at gladiatortheam folder so you can see next one (music) then, making sure use folder names IS CHECKED (a good idea, though not important is to UNCHECK include system and hidden folders - saves on space in pk3)

Now click the "Add with wildcards" button. rename the zip to pk3 and your done.

If it don't work, then right click your mp3 and select properties.

Click the summary tab and delete anything that is in the boxes.

Then click the advance button at bottom of summarys and do the same there

The genre will go back to other once you've clicked apply but its okay.

Now most important bit....

Still in same bit (Advance summary) check the Audio section near bottom, should be as follows:

Duration : however long the track is

Bit Rate : 128Kbps *see note

Channels : 2(stereo)

Audio Sample Rate : 44kHz *see note

*If these two are not right then game will not play the track and go back to default

If you bring down console at main menu you will find the error telling you about the mp3.

Give it a go and see what happens.

Good luck.

First off, are you using Winzip?

Second, Use winzip Classic interface if using winzip, if you've not got winzip then get it!

and as for changing the file type you need to make sure that you can see file extentions for known file types Example:

When you create a new winzip file, do it appear as:

New Winzip File

or

New Winzip File.zip

If you don't see the .zip at end you need to go to Control Panel/folder options/view tab and uncheck the "Hide file extentions for known file types"

Then you can change the .zip to .pk3 (Click "yes" when asked if you want to change file type)

CAUTION!!!

When renaming other files, Windows will require you to add the extention all the time, so make a note of what is after the dot all the time or you may loose use of that particular file.

Another note, if using Windows XP and trying to zip the files that way you will never get it to work!

Download Winzip.

Let me know if you win or not, and if not tell me EXACTLY what you've done, failing that post the file and I will have a look at it for you.
