Music Setup
« on: October 31, 2008, 02:39:39 AM »
Here are the steps to change the music on the emulator.

1. Navigate on your computer to the following folder
C:\wsxl

2. Now click the WeatherScan folder and then the music folder.

3. Place any music files you want the emulator to play here. They must be non DRM mp3s.

4. Right click the list.m3u and open it up with NOTEPAD.

5. Follow the same format you see listed. For example if I have "awesomesong.mp3" and want the emulator to play it, I add it on a seperate line in notepad and type in EXACTLY how the filename and FILE EXTENSION is spelled. An easy way to do this is to right click on the song and select rename. Then when the text is highlighted use Ctrl. C to copy it and then paste it into notepad. Then add.mp3 if it is not already added.

5. Save notepad and your done!

Note For Vista Users
Vista likes to be difficult and sometimes wont let you edit files in program folders. To get around this, copy the file to your desktop, edit it there, save the changes. Then move it back to the program folder and overwrite the file there
