- 2. Playing your Music Packs
VMX Dark Edition Setting & Playing Music Packs:
VMX 2.2 Dark Edition has a much more advanced way of handling your Music Packs. In this version, all of your Music Packs are online and available simultaneously. In the past a pack had to be “set” before it could be played, you can still set a new pack that way if you wish but you do not need to. So let’s say we have the Trade Pack and Exploration Pack installed:
Playing those packs is a very complicated process…
Step 1) Say “play Trade Pack”
Step 2) There is no step 2. Your chosen music pack will now play.
Let’s say you wish to switch over to Exploration Pack, then you simply say “play Exploration Pack”. “Play citizen of the stars”, “play trade pack”, “play the explorers pack”, “play elements pack”.
If you intend to use context mode (event driven contextual music), you DO NOT need to set or play any packs at all. Simply load VMX and load Elite, that’s it. N.B context mode is always enabled by default when starting up VMX, however should you choose to play music packs like albums or with mix variants (“play original”, “play key up” etc), VMX will auto disable context mode (so things don’t get chaotic and confusing while the game is active). Once you are done with album/variant mode if you wish to then use context mode simply say “enable context mode” tracks will then auto play once a new in game event triggers.
