Quake CD Music

Postby gladders » 2018-8-12 @ 21:43

I have burned the soundtrack to a CD which runs in the CD player. I boot up Quake. The launch monitor recognises there's a CD in the tray, but no music is played when I proceed. Sound effects are fine, though. I'm using an AWE64 and Windows 98.

What am I missing, folks?

Perhaps an audio cable from the CD-ROM drive to the AWE64?

I have one, it's connected and working, hence the CD player playing the CD no problems.

Have you tried any of these console commands:
Code: Select all
cd on
    Re-enables the CD audio system after a "cd off" command.
   
cd off
    Shuts down the CD audio system. No more music will be
    played unless it is re-enabled.
   
cd reset
    Causes the CD audio to re-initialize. This is useful
    if you change CDs or insert the CD after you've
    already run Quake.
   
cd play <track number>
    Plays the specified track one time.
   
cd loop <track number>
    Plays the specified track. It will be repeated until
    either it is manually stopped or another track is started.
   
cd stop
    Stops the currently playing track.
   
cd resume
    Will resume playback of a stopped track.
   
cd eject
    This is for CD players that do not have a manual eject button.
   
cd info
    Reports information such as the number and types of
    tracks on the current CD, what track (if any) is
    currently playing, and the playback volume.
