Yes, the file wouldn't play if you simply replace the files. No, if you do what I listed above without having to replace anything, the game will play the music regardless of the filesize.
I'm saying this from experience, and I literally did the latter within minutes before I posted this.
Something must have changed, then. I was told it was no longer possible to change music files in early July, no matter what the user does. And the developers told me it was to fix an issue that was causing crashes.
You can change music files. It works.
I use random filesize and bitrate 192 kb/s and it works in game.
Just replaced and renamed my music file to Scen_S4E2_loop.mp3
I do nothing with my music file.
Random filesize, random bitrate, random length. Still works.
I'm curious if this community has ever considered enabling the discussions feature. Having a modern area for users to communicate that is integrated into the wiki has been proven to increase activity and adds another reason to keep users coming back to the wiki. Fandom data suggests that users who check out Discussions are twice as likely to visit that wiki again, compared to users who only look at articles. Adding this feature basically upgrades the wiki from just an encyclopedia, into a comprehensive fan destination and a place for users to hang out, rather than just visiting the wiki quickly for some information, and then leaving. It could help invite fresh energy, new ideas, and help sustain the community.
It is entirely up to you of course, but if you'd like, I could enable this feature for the wiki and it could possibly encourage new editors to join (or old ones to return). Let me know whether or not you're interested.
You can find more information about it at these links:
Hey, Sitb. About the Discussion, I have been trying to use it before, but it seems like Discord is a more acceptable by fans as a medium to discuss things. I'm okay to enable it for this Wiki, though. Thank you.
Yeah, Discord is definitely handy. A ton of wikis have their own discord servers, which I try to make a point of joining for each wiki I visit. However, I find those who use Discord aren't always the same types of users who use Discussions, and you never quite get an idea of just how many users will use discussions and how many new users might start to appear on the wiki, until after it is implemented. I think adding discussions could only help the wiki and going forward into the future of Fandom, this feature is going to be increasingly more integrated into the platform, so it's probably best that communities become familiar with it sooner, rather than later. Since you have no objections to enabling discussions, I will ask staff to enable it for the community.
There is one other optional thing we could do while enabling discussions, if you're interested. I see this wiki uses the old forums feature, which has been depreciated for several years. It still functions of course, but to my knowledge, it is never going to be updated ever again. If you'd like, I could ask Fandom staff to migrate forum content into discussions. You don't need to do this, and you are welcome to keep Forums intact and separate on the wiki while discussions are set up separately.
Let me know what you would like to see done with the forums (keep them as-is, or migrate them into the new discussions). - Sitb(Message wall / Talk page) 10:08, July 15, 2019 (UTC)
As it turns out, the forum migration tool is currently disabled for maintenance, so the wiki's forums will remain along-side discussions for now (the forums can be migrated later). I'll go ahead with enabling Discussions and let you know when it happens. - Sitb(Message wall / Talk page) 13:02, July 19, 2019 (UTC)
The discussions feature is now active on this wiki! You can find it, and your new community feed through the wiki's top navigation ("Discuss").
I've already provided you with a few useful links related to discussions above, but here's some more information, specifically related to how the admin and moderator tools are used (See: Help:Admin and Moderator Tools in Discussions). If you have any more questions about the feature, feel free to send me a message. - Sitb(Message wall / Talk page) 10:38, July 20, 2019 (UTC)
I thought I would reach out to you, since you are one of the administrators here. I have recently been appointed as the Fandom Wiki Manager for this wiki. I am here to assist this community in an official capacity and act as a liaison between you, and full-time Fandom staff. If you, or any other users of this wiki ever have an issue or question related to the wiki (editing, templates, wiki design, or any other matters), please feel free to contact me on my message wall, and I will assist in any way I can.
