    Here is the Custom Music Patch.

    You can download it from the GitHub: https://github.com/ProfGarfield/CustomMusicForTOTPP

    (Click the green "Clone or Download" button to download the files.)

    This link should always be the current version.

    The download is ~85 megabytes, since I included all the Civ II Music that I have (it makes installation instructions easier, too). If you have bandwidth limitations, post a response, and I'll make a smaller download and instructions.

    Be sure to read the readme, including the warning that this patch is designed to overwrite files (I think this is a minimal danger, but it is there).

    The Custom Music Patch has two main features:

    1. User Playlists

    A user can add files to Test of Time\Music and edit playlist.txt in order to have a larger variety of music. No events.lua file needed. Unfortunately, the names in Pick Music won't be changed.

    2. Custom Music For Scenarios

    A scenario creator can ship a custom playlist (changing pick music game.txt) and provide the music files for it.

    Questions, comments, bug reports, etc. are all welcome.

    I made a small update to customMusic.lua, basically initializing the random seed. Without it, choosing a 'random' playlist will always yield the same thing (at least until you play a bit and load the game again). It took me a while to notice this.
