[RoR] Return of Rome Modded In-game music will not play

:arrow_forward: GAME INFORMATION

  • GAME BUILD: Version 101.102.18071.0 (#83607) 11179620
  • OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows 10

:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

Custom modded in-game music for the DLC “Return of Rome” will not play, the game will instead opt for trying to play whatever in-game theme wasn’t modded, for example if I replace all in-game music (“aoe_ingame01.wem” to “aoe_ingame24.wem” ) the game will end up looping the civilization theme.

The themes for losing or winning however work fine, same thing as “aoe_frontendXX.wem”

This is the directory where I’m placing the music files:
“[MOD NAME]\resources_common\sound\music”

I also have tried “[MOD NAME]\modes\Pompeii\resources_common\sound\music” but that doesn’t seem to replace the songs since the normal ones start playing.

:arrow_forward: FREQUENCY OF ISSUE

  • 100% of the time / matches I play (ALWAYS)

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Create a local mod
  2. Put a custom .wem in “[MOD NAME]\modes\Pompeii\resources_common\sound\music”
  3. Rename the .wem file to aoe_ingameXX.wem (XX can be a number from 01 to 24)
  4. Open up AoE II:DE switch to Return of Rome and go in-game to test the music

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

Return of Rome should play custom in-game music, same as regular AoE II:DE.

Thank you for reporting, this has been logged for investigation.
