The AudioMod for Minecraft 1.6.2 and 1.6.1is a modders utility that aids on improving the addition of music and sound effects to Minecraft. In this mod is CodecIBXM, which was created in addition to the original codec of Minecraft by the same developer. I strongly suggest that if you are a modder, or you just want to experiment with Minecraft audio that you download this modification right away! It allows for total customization through a drag and drop folder system config.
AudioMod for Minecraft 1.6.2 Main Features
- In addition to ogg, wav, and mus files, Minecraft can now play xm, s3m, and mod files. This upgrade in audio file compatibility adds supports for modders that want to add different music to Minecraft. You can also add new sound effects to the game easily and quickly!
- Custom music and sounds need to be dragged into the resources folder and music in mod/music folder. This does slightly increase load time of Minecraft however.
- For example, if you want to add a new stepping sound to Minecraft, you would add a new stone1.ogg in to mod/sound/step directory. This sound would then be occasionally played alongside the original sound effect.
