If anyone knows, please let me know. :)

Hi Philipvdp,
To add music to your track try the following method....

-Converting your "wanted" mp3/any other audio format to ogg format.
-Then Puting it in the game folder..."Data>Skins>Challenges music" and drop it in there.

-Open the game...
-Open a track...
-Go to the media tracker screen...
-And go to select music.....
The song you dragged into "challenges music" should be in there.

That should work ^^

ok foks the file you need is a LOC file you can make one by :


1.go to tools-folder options
2. youll se a tab (view) click it ......
3. now in this window youll see check boxes
look for( hide extentions for known file types) uncheck this
4. apply to all folders . then click ok
5. open notepad and write the web site that is hosting your music ..( http://www.fsphost.com is a good direct link host)
6.save... type file name of music with the .LOC extention.... under the name. change the file type to( all files )
7.......click ok and you have your .LOC file for your tracks music !!!

music .ogg format
.loc= locator file
.mux=is a small file for music ......to make these......

open game dialog /help / custom data/convert music and sippy your on your way
So in stead of sending big music files all you need with track are the loc file and the mux file
