Music Fixes

Here’s a brief explanation on how to fix diverse Music problems in The Settlers IV. This guide is based on UltimateSpinDash‘s Music Fix and my own research.

Please Note: I have tried to keep it as simple as possible, as previous attempts at explaining the multiple solutions have been met with confusion. If there’s still a way I can improve upon it, please let me know.

INSTRUCTIONS:

AVAILABLE FIXES:

traeger (2) : Fixes the Mayan sound bugs, such as the music stopping altogether after a fight.

This fix was made by UltimateSpinDash.

traeger (3): Restores the missing Trojan Track. If you own the Community Pack or the History Edition, this will be already fixed for you.

traeger (1): Fixes the wrong music tracks playing when playing as the Vikings. In regular Gameplay, the Vikings are programmed to have their Fighting music playing:
(1) (2)
With this fix, the otherwise unused Settlement music will play:
(1) (2)

As this is an optional fix and may be subject to taste, it’s offered separately.
