    Probably my last question for a while but I have searched all over for this but only found looping sounds that has nothing to do with mapping. I have seen a trade server very long back ago before I started mapping with a looping soundscape (I suppose) before. But I just cant find nothing on it. All help appreciated!

    Aren't soundscapes always looping?

    I mean like .mp3 or .wav files for long songs. Im going for a Winter themed map and usually the songs don't loop only the ambient noises do. Forgot to mention its a custom soundscape using notepad++ to make the soundscape file and other stuff with it in the map.

    Alright I got it to work. Too bad that you can use soundscapes to have it loop whenever you want while only specifying certain areas but meh. Its fine.

    You can use soundscapes to loop a sound forever. I know because I've done it.
    I made a tiny idle map back in 2009 that played a 1:30 long lounge music track at a even volume over the whole map.

    Here's the entire soundscape script file:
    Code:
    "idle.lounge"
    {
    	"dsp"	"1"
    
    //general ambient
    	"playlooping"
    	{
    		"volume"	".4"
    		"pitch"		"100"
    		"wave"		"ravidge\loungeloop.wav"
    	}
    }
    Not all wav files are loopable, but try with what you have first, and if it dosen't work, google information about it.
