Musical Issue: Music files not usable

Recommended Posts

So,I obtained RPG Maker MV,and I was happy to see that everything looked better. So I decided to port my old project from VX Ace to MV using this converter script.

Everything looked fine,and after transferring all resources,I playtested it. After a few quick corrections due to some differences of file extensions,I noticed something odd.

The music was available in sound test,map editor,everywhere,and it will not cause any errors when playtesting the game. But no sound comes out,even with speakers at full blast. Sound effects are there,but nothing else. Even when having a .m4a file and an .ogg one with the same name,it doesn't play. Maybe it's because I converted it just by changing the extention (from mp3 to m4a) then duplicating it by copy-pasting it and then changing the extention from .m4a to .ogg. I figured it would work well,but not at all. It's there,but it's not usable. That's quite infortunate to say the least,huh?

If you have any ideas of how to fix it,or if it has happened to you but you fixed it,please let me know. It will be hugely appreciated.

So first of all, converting doesn't work like that. Just changing the file name extension will not change the file itself. For example, if you change a notepad document (.txt) to a music file (.mp3), it wouldn't work. Same goes for m4a and mp3. Even though they are both audio files, they are not the exact same. You may want to covert them using an online converter or a downloaded one and then use them. Also, send a picture of the error message. For me, the audio sometimes works without the need for an m4a file and just the .ogg file. When I converted my VXA game to MV I had a certain issue with the music/SFX. If mine was the same as yours right now, I know the fix.

Tell me if converting the files properly works!:D
