I am working on fix to dm_mariokart, and while i was working on it, suddenly, soundscapes stopped working on a new version of map. Even though, i have a soundscape file inside tf/scripts, and paths to sounds are looking ok, soundscapes are still not working. Also, at first, when they stopped working, console said

MP3 initialized with no sound cache, this may cause janking. [ mariokart2\mario_airstrip.mp3 ]
Failed to create decoder for MP3 [ mariokart2\mario_airstrip.mp3 ]

Try moving the soundscape file to the "custom" folder and precaching it. I'm not sure if it works like with custom particles (mapname_particles.txt) or you have to add the file's name to the Manifest list.

nope, still silent
The manifest file has to be inside the "custom" folder as well. Make sure you own these inside "custom/customfolder/scripts/":

soundscapes_dm_mariokart.txt
soundscapes_manifest.txt

soundscapes_dm_mariokart.txt
includes all the soundscape names used by the map, while the _manifest one must include the previous soundscape file listed in it. I'm not really into using custom soundscapes, but I made one myself for a map of mine and it works fine.
