  • Rock Raiders Music without CD Fix

    Rock Raiders without music has long been an issue, but following this small guide will restore the music back into the game and you won’t even need the game CD or any other audio disc.

    How Does it Work?

    LEGO Rock Raiders uses Media Control Interface (MCI) calls to play tracks from the CD-ROM. This is done through the Windows Multimedia API (winmm) which comes standard with all Windows installations. Since we want to play music without the disc we essentially need to re-route those calls from LRR to our own version of "winmm" which plays OGG files from the Music folder.

    This fix is based on Toni Spets' OGG winmm wrapper which I have modified to suite LRR.

     

    Applying the Fix

    To begin, download the Music Fix which contains all the necessary files you’ll need for this guide. The download also includes the 3 songs from the PC game in case your copy was one of those missing the audio track on your CD-ROM.

    Inside the ZIP file you downloaded, there will be 4 DLL files and a ‘Music’ folder containing 3 songs. Extract all these files and folders into your Rock Raiders installation directory (alongside LegoRR.exe). Your LRR should look something like this afterward.

    Thats all there is to it! If you run the game music should now begin playing after dismissing the “Mission Brief” on all game levels. If you wish to have all the music from the LEGO Rock Raiders games, download the music collection.

    All the music files are located in the "Music" folder, these files must be OGG files and must be named "Trackxx.ogg" (replace xx with any number from 00 - 98). If you would like to play your own music, there are OGG convertors online, or programs such as Audacity which will convert other audio formats to OGG.

    Enjoy ;)

If by 'right' you mean Administrator Rights or suchlike, we can get around that. Providing you can download things, go to the VLC download page and instead of just clicking "Download" click the drop-down arrow to the right. Then click Zip Package.

When that's done, right-click the zip and hit Extract All (or whatever extraction method you like. WinRar does some very stupid stuff like disabling that which is why I uninstalled it). Then run vlc.exe inside.

Tada, VLC media player!

Well, I managed to install it, however it have same issue as Windows Media unfortunatelly.

It's really strange that running music in the background makes your PC run slow. Something's wrong here.

 

If you have a smartphone, I guess you could install VLC on that from whatever App Store you need and use a cable to move the files over to your smartphone and play it there, but such an idea seems convoluted...

I have found the issue, but it's with how LRR handles the cycling of music and not so much with the fix. This should work when I later release LRR:CE.

Guide & Fix Update

I have updated the fix to correct the playback issues, I have made other adjustments to make this fix much easier to apply. In fact, it is now simply a matter of dropping the files into your game directory. The guide has been updated to reflect the changes. If you already have the older version, please re-download the updated fix.

 

Enjoy :)
