    [Resolved] Hi there,

    I have recently created an apparently dysfunctional music pack, and would like to know why it is failing to work. I have created a .json file, verified it with jsoneditoronline, and it is in a .zip file in the same directory as my "assets" folder. Inside the "assets" folder is a "lotrmusic" folder with all my .ogg files. All of my .ogg files work, and my volume is at 100%. I have tried restarting my computer twice, and I really have no idea why my file is not playing. It is in the "lotrmusic" folder inside my minecraft directory, so it should be playing. Is there any config option that I need to enable to play it, or should it just play automatically?

    Thank you for your time.

    Edit: My json file has no author for some files, and an author for the rest. Would that effect anything?

    Edit: Close the thread, problem solved!

    • Authors are not required, other than that I do not know. From what I've heard, other peoples problems are usually because of the json, so you may want to upload it so that people could take a look.

    • Make sure that you have music turned on ingame. If that's not the problem I'm not sure how to help.

      Not to be rude but this isn't that helpful considering how obvious it is...

      You would be surprised at how people could miss such a simple step

    • I have had music on. Here's a direct copy and paste of my .JSON. Hopefully it is helpful.

    • Simple solution, don't use music! Hard solution, ask the person who created the music system.

    • The "weight" should never have a value greater than 1. Fix that and see if it makes a difference.

      Edit by Mevans: That isn't true, the weight can be any value, and greater than 1 means it will play more often. Say, for example, a track with weight 2 would tend to be selected twice as often as a track with weight 1. Sorry for editing your post... I just wanted to make sure that nobody is misled on the off-chance they stumble across this in the future.

      Edit by Milk: Thanks for explaining that! I didn't know it worked that way.

      Or easier but annoying solution: use the music pack creater program by The Ranger Malvegil. Which, if no one determines the issue I rather think to be the best option.

      What he said.

    • Ensure that your files are set up correctly too. In your game directory, there should be a lotrmusic folder. Inside that folder you should have your zipfile containing the music pack. The zipfile should be arranged as such:

      Directly inside the zip file there should be an assets folder and a json file titled music.json.

      Within the assets folder there should be another folder titled lotrmusic.

      Within the second lotrmusic folder you should have all of your .ogg files. Make sure you do not change the names.

      If this is all as it should be and it still doesn't work, then I really cannot help you any more. I would suggest either having someone who knows json files review your file or recompiling all of the information using the music pack creating program I mentioned above. I hope this helps, or at least narrows down the possibilities.


      P.S. I compiled the structure that the files should be in directly from my own working music pack. I don't know if anything mentioned is unnecessary, but at least I know that I did not miss anything critical structurally.

      Also, I realize that you probably do have all of these files set up correctly, but you can never be too safe.

    • I am 99% sure my files are set up correctly, however the weight thing might be the issue. I will try it and see if that fixes it.

    • I know of a program for making music packs, it is very helpful. http://lotrminecraftmod.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:The_Ranger_Malvegil/Music_Pack_Creator:_Beta_1.0

      Edit: I saw another comment that shows this same thing. I do reccomend it, but try the MilkMC's idea first.

    • Note that I did use the Ranger Malvegil's music pack thingy to make this btw. And also, I removed any mention of "weight", and the pack still didn't work (it played only normal minecraft music). Here's a cleaned-up version of my .json:

    • haha it is quite long. Do the files actually have spaces in their names? If so, that might be the problem. I would get rid of any spaces or special characters in the filename, and change their respective references.

      It looks like some of your later filenames are fine, but at the begining it references "A Journey In the Dark.ogg" as a filename. I would change that to "AJourneyIntheDark.ogg". I hope this helps.

    • Good point, and I was thinking of that a bit myself. It might take awhile, so I will try it tomorrow and see if that works.

    • k good luck :)

    • I've found that you should not have any spaces, marks above letters, periods/commas, and non-letters or numbers in the file names (the .ogg files, not the actual titles). At least, if you want to be as safe as you can.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, I looked at the example .json file posted by the mod team on the original mod post, and none of their .ogg file names had any spaces, punctuation, or standard keyboard symbols besides letters. That is probably the issue.

    • I completely re-did my pack using Malvegil's pack creator changing all the fimenames to 100% lower case letters (with .ogg at the end), but it still didn't work. I get this error message in my log:

      [Client thread/ERROR]: ########## GL ERROR ##########

      [Client thread/ERROR]: @ Post startup

      [Client thread/ERROR]: 1281: Invalid value

      The game starts, but there is no music whatsoever in the game, not even regular minecraft music.

      I restarted my machine, but it did not work. Any tips on resolving this error? I can repost the updated JSON if you want, but the jsoneditoronline said it was fine.

        Loading editor
    • Instead of reposting the json file I think you should replace the original post with the updated file. I doubt I'll have much time for a while, but if I do I might try to troubleshoot the problem a little.

      Are the files in you music pack valid .ogg's? How did you convert them?

    • They are all OGG's, however I converted them by changing the file ending from .m4a to .ogg, which seems to register then as .ogg's. Is there more I need to do to convert them?

      From my experience I think there is more that you have to do. I used an online converter, though I'm not sure what the best way to convert them is.

        Loading editor
    • Ok I will try that and see if it works

        Loading editor
    • I went through an online file converter and converted all of my .m4a files into .ogg files. It turns out that my old ".ogg" files were not in fact actual .ogg files but renamed versions of .m4a files because they took up exactly the same amount of space as a regular .m4a file would take up. However, even when I used the correct .ogg files in a new music pack, it failed and came up with a similar error message to last time:

    • Create a new Music Pack with only this track: http://lotrminecraftmod.wikia.com/wiki/File:Utumno_Fire.ogg

      This is definetly a valid .ogg, and it works for me. If the pack works with this file, then you had a problem with the .ogg's. If not, I advise you to reinstall Minecraft.

    • It worked, so I must have a problem with my .ogg files. I will simply need to resolve that issue.

    • I converted them with Audacity (Download ). You can also use this program to edit the tracks.
