    Do you guys use mp3 files to have music playing in the background while looking for a game to load? I use this on CFG USB so I'm assuming it's a feature on other loaders as well. I used to have the nyan cat song but changed it to something a little more seasonal during Christmas. Currently, I have some mariachi music on there (in hopes that the kids will hurry up and pick a game already,) but I'd like to hear your ideas. I was considering something like Miles Davis' 20+ minute "Bitch's Brew," but that doesn't really pick up until about the 3 minute mark.

    Ive always been fond of the Chip Tune variety....makes it feel Retro when browsing my emulators :)

    Or my next best suggestion is the OC Remix site with Remixed versions of the Classics......these being my Favs

    Chip tunes might be in order. I even remember some 8bit midi versions of Slayer songs floating around the web; might have to search for those. Sorry I can't be any help with GX loader.

    ^^^ yep, that should do it for GX. For CFG, put a file called music.mp3 in the /usbloader folder IIRC.

    Btw there is a program called MP3 Cutter if you want to use it to trim the intro from the song Bitch's Brew you mentioned, and use that.



    As for suggestions, i change a lot, but here are some IMHO good ones:

    Chicane - Offshore


    Megaman 25th anniversary chiptune
    from 0.24 onwards, this is a great tune:

    Beyond Good and Evil Soundtrack- Home Sweet Home


    Robert Miles - Children


    Perfect Dark - Pause Menu



    PAROV STELAR feat. Lilja Bloom "COCO"


    Goldeneye 007 : Wii - Official Soundtrack - Nightclub HQ
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v= 5xvdqVM0Y1k

    Flo Rida - Good Feeling


    F Zero GX Night of Big Blue


    Yanni - Nostalgia


    SNES Waterworld - Attack 2
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y0PixBaf8_Y

    Waterworld (SNES) - Diving
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_FHq_9O4q4


    i have many many more but those should suffice for now, i think. Hope you enjoy.

    ==EDIT==
    Why do the links show up as videos? I'm sorry for any inconvenience, i posted just links, not embedded vids.

    I never used the mp3 player in GX, but someone reported a bug when launching EmuNAND channels while a MP3 is playing.
    I'll have to check this bug.

    One neat thing about mp3s on CFG USB Loader, the music turns off when you're ripping a disc and turns back on when it's done. It's a nice little alarm if you need to leave the room or catch a quick nap as it's ripping. ;)

    You can use multiple songs on CFG and possibly with other loaders too. You just set a path while using the configurator for cfg on your pc, set a path and throw all the MP3s you want in the folder. I use game music and some stuff from starship amazing but during Christmas I throw a few tunes from the album 8-bit Christmas.
