    Hi again!
    I've released NXPlay a few days ago, and I've been trying to make this sysmodule since then, when I came up with this idea.

    It's a kip module which plays music in the background, no matter what are you doing.

    Usage:

    • Add the kip file to hekate INI (something like kip1=sys-play.kip)
    • Create a text file on the root of your SD named sys-play.txt.
    • Add there the names of the audio files to play, ordered as you want.
    TXT file example:

    audio1.mp3
    track.wav
    music.ogg


    • Then, place all those audio files under sdmc:/media, because sys-play will try to find them there.
    • Enjoy your music on home menu, or anywhere!
    • NXPlay support is planned, as a tool to pause/skip audios. Sorry, but controlling cannot be used with sysmodules.
    IMPORTANT! Don't use this kip with LayeredFS, as LFS uses much memory so it'll get stuck booting

    GitHub repos: https://github.com/XorTroll/sys-play
    Latest release: https://github.com/XorTroll/sys-play/releases/latest

    Hope you enjoy it!

    I added it to every option (except stock) and launched Atmosphere. Does it not work with LayeredFS?
    Edit: Tried with non-LayeredFS and the system booted, but no music.

    Don't suppose there's anyway to use this with SX OS?

    No, hope they add custom kip support in the future.

    This is really cool, but I'm not getting any audio. Everything is configured correctly, I triple-checked, but I just get the usual silent home menu.
