RVGL Music Not Working

For whatever reason, there is no music when I play RVGL. The RVGL project page says that it uses OpenAL Soft for the audio, and I don't have that installed, so is that the problem?

OpenAL is included with the RVGL download, but if you want to be sure you have it, check whether the file OpenAL32.dll exists in the game's directory.

The music should be located in the redbook folder. Are there any sound files there in your install? If not, you can get them here.

OpenAL32.dll is in my game files, but It seems that there is no redbook folder anywhere in my Re-Volt game files, so should I make one? And if so, where should I put it?

Ah, that's the problem then. If you unzip the soundtrack pack of your choice in the game's directory, it'll automatically create the redbook folder, so you don't need to worry about that.

You can get FLAC versions of the PC and Dreamcast releases at the link I posted earlier, or OGG versions of the Dreamcast and community releases here.

Sorry to bug you, but is the file named directory? Because if it's not, I can't find it then. I tried downloading and extracting the music myself, but it's not working.

You gotta right click the downloaded music then unzip it to a location you know you can find the unzipped file the folder should be named redbook once you find it just copy it to where rvgl.exe is located paste the redbook folder there and see if it worked

Sorry for the late reply, but i forgot to check this again. Lol! But thank you so much! It worked splendidly! ReVolt just isn't the same without the music. Lmao! I appreciate your response and your aid! Godspeed, friend!
