Getting music in Carmageddon 2 on Windows 10

Post by Toshiba-3 »

No idea why Carmageddon 2 just doesn't want to cooperate while C1 and TDR can be fixed easily with different versions of winmm.dll.
So this is a possible solution for most of you to get music playback working again in Carma2. This is for the GOG/Steam release, or if you got the audio tracks in a MUSIC subfolder.
  1. Beforehand, you have to convert the .ogg files to .mp3. Google for online mp3 converters if you haven't got any at hand.
  2. Go there https://cryo.jp/_inmm/ and grab the ZIP for V2.38. Extract the content into the C2 Root.
  3. Drag and drop CARMA2_HW.EXE onto _inmmcnf.exe to patch it.
  4. Run _inmmcnf.exe and set *.mp3 files to DirectShow:

  5. Add the Track0#.mp3 files into _inmm.ini and save that file into the C2 root:

Run the fuckin game. You should get music now.
I guess I'll provide a ready2use patch at some point.
