MIDI and ensuring loop

Recommended Posts

What is done to ensure MIDI songs loop indefinitely when the song ends? I noticed 1 track an older upload that went to the next song in the WAD file instead of looping.

MIDI Files themselves can hold more than one track. So it depends on the Midi file itself.

See >> http://zdoom.org/wiki/MIDI for more information.

All "Music" loops by default, assuming you're calling it with a "Music" command and not a "Sound" command.

I've worked with Midi's in the past, it's not worth the trouble in my opinion. Mp3s are the way to go.

Good luck either way.

Cheers..

The problem is that the music content I am working with is in MIDI format and there's no way in hell I'd use the actual MP3s of the songs because they're from CDs.

Do you have an example of this multitrack MIDI?

I know one of the two AiC songs listed here has looping issues. I am using Anvil Studio to check the files but unsure where to look, maybe the events section of the file.

I am compiling a gigantic MIDI WAD set as a means of resource for mappers for those who are wondering why I am asking the question on looping.
