GW2 Soundtrack Editor toolsoundtrack editor app gui
Posted 23 August 2012 - 11:23 AM
It's a Graphical User Interface for the current soundtrack editing feature in Guild Wars 2. It should allow you to customize what music will be played in any situation in the game in a hopefully easy and intuitive way.
Why should I get it?
Adding custom music in the game is currently a long and inconvenient process. You must create a playlist using some compatible player, name it correctly and paste it in a correct folder. Also, to bypass the random playing feature/bug, you must download or otherwise create an empty music file and include it in the playlist as a first file. This tool does it all for you.
How to use it?
First, you create a playlist by either opening an existing one or choosing which files you want to include. Then, in the main window, you can choose in which situation in the game it will be used. When you're done, simply close the app and it's all set!
How to play my own music together with the default one?
It's unfortunately not possible with the current system. The game does not use these categories for it's own music. Instead, each zone has it's own. You can, however, download the GW2 music using the app linked below that gets it directly from Anet servers in the same way your client does.
Does it work?
My goal was to finish it before launch, so I didn't have much time to test it extensively. If you find a bug, feel free to post it here and I'll fix it ASAP. About how the game uses the custom soundtracks, I couldn't be able to test it much either. In the last stress test sometimes the music just stopped playing until I rezoned and the Crafting category didn't seem to play at all. There is very little I can do with it anyways, unless some new specifications will be released by Anet.
Is it safe?
Yes, there is no virus or keylogger in there... If it would, your anti-virus would tell you You can always compile it on your own from the source code... if you have Python installed...
OK, where to get it?
Here is the sourceforge page: https://sourceforge....w2soundtracked/
Apart from downloading, you can also check out the screenshots or write a review...
You can get the music downloader here: http://www.filefacto..._downloader.rar
There is a source code included with that one, too... The Anet shouldn't mind as it's downloading it from their own servers, so there shouldn't be any legal issues with it...
Have fun listening!

Read the source yourself? Or were you planning on trusting the OP?
