Not quite sure which start menu
you mean, but if it is the
start menu for a dmod, then add
playmidi(" title of midi here ")
in the Start.C
If you Want music to play
during loading (which is moot since
most dmod loads don't take very long)
I think you would add playmidi("")
in the Main.C script.
Don't know if thats what you were
looking for though. I'm a little
rusty so if i'm wrong please
someone correct me.

That would be a line in the dink.ini which I can't remember, cause I've never done it. But this is in the development texts in the dink smallwood folder and/or development sub-folder of the dinksmallwood folder..

Jeeze, I'm getting really disappointed in some people's engagement.. heh.. every dang thing you need to know is put in .txt files all over the dink smallwood folder as you install the game, but I'm given the impression that nobody reads them. Nobody new anyway.. or maybe they do, but they don't have to ask questions here, so we don't see them?

You're supposed to put in

playmidi yourmidi.mid

after "//load dink" line, or that's how it's done in MI.

just put it wherever you want in the file. As long as it is there. Uhm. I'm quite convinced thou, that the earlier it is in the file, the earlier it will play...(I've not tested this, I just assume), but anyway.
