Custom Stadium Sounds! Hey guys, just wanted to give a heads up as to how awesome the custom stadium sounds feature is this year. It takes a pretty long time to do the whole process, but once you do it, it's freaking AMAZING! In this thread I'll describe the process and also post some links. Feel free to ask any questions! I have added the custom stadium sounds for my 3 online dynasty teams (ND, Florida, Florida State) and it makes the experience SICK, especially for ND and Florida (ESPECIALLY ND). Well worth the time, in my opinion. Links --- Utopia Forums for Stadium Sounds Resources (links as well as what team uses what sound where) --- OS Forums for Stadium Sounds Resources (more current links but worse info as to who plays what when than Utopia) --- Band Clips for the Following Schools: Bama, Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, FSU, UGA, Kentucky, LSU, Misc, Miss State, Ole Miss, PSU, Pump_up_Clips, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vandy --- Clips for the Following Schools: Army, Navy, Notre Dame How to Search for Sounds Check the forums on OS for the conference you are in. There will most likely be MANY helpful links in there. I haven't been in every forum, but do some digging and you'll find the info that you need. To find out which sound is played when, I would reference the Utopia forums. They seem to be more accurate, although I can't say that for every school on the OS forums. The Process Okay, prepare yourselves. This is not a half hour project. More like two hours it felt like, but I'm not positive. You will need: A pad, a pen, a blank CD, a CD burner, a program to burn CD's (I used iTunes), and a hard drive for your XBOX. 1) Download all necessary files to your computer. For ease, try to put them into one folder. 2) Make a list of all of the "sound events". You will see them on the OS and Utopia forums. I am talking about "defense on 3rd down, penalty, timeout away" -- stuff like that. You'll see what I mean when you look. 3) Write down where you want to play each sound that you downloaded. You can use the info you find on those forums as a guide for realism, or mix and match to suit yourself. 4)Load the audio files that you downloaded into the program that you are going to burn them to a CD with. 5) Burn the CD as an AUDIO CD, not a data or MP3 CD. This is VITAL. 6) While the CD is burning, write the TRACK NUMBER of the sound next to the sound name on your pad. Failure to do this will cost you a lot of time. 7) After the CD is burned, you are done with your computer. Now the REAL fun begins. 8) Put the Audio CD into your XBOX tray. When the menu comes up, choose to Rip Disc to Hard Drive or whatever the actual verbiage might be. 9) After you have ripped the CD, play TRACK ONE ONLY (not all of them at once). Then, SAVE CURRENT PLAYLIST and name the playlist the track number (1 in this case). Repeat this for all of the sound files. Each sound clip needs to be in it's own playlist! 10) After you have completed step 9, load NCAA Football and find the Custom Stadium Sounds area (I *think* under My Legacy or something like that). 11) Press 'Y' to add a sound event. There is a maximum of 50 events, so if you are doing 3 teams you will need to plan wisely. You'll be fine if just doing it for 1 or 2 teams. 12) When the add event menu pops up, scroll to your team, choose the event, and then find the track number that corresponds to the event that you wrote on your pad. Repeat this process for every sound event, making sure to choose the right team every time. You will be able to preview the sound by pressing 'X'. 13) When you have loaded all of the sound events, back out and SAVE YOUR PROFILE!!!! Failure to do this will mean that the sounds will not save, and the next time you turn your XBOX on the sounds won't play. This will be very very painful! 14) YOU'RE DONE! Enjoy! It is awesome to be able to hear the Florida band play 'Gator Bait' after a sack, to hear the ACTUAL Notre Dame kickoff sound, and to hear Florida State's band play Massacre after a touchdown!
