Navigate to sound\warzone_itemtest\musickits

Rename the folder "my_music_kit" to whatever you want to name your music kit.

Naming

Even though at this point you have changed the name of the folder from "my_music_kit" we will keep referring to this folder in this documentation, so please make sure you are referring to your renamed folder.

Inside the "my_music_kit" folder there are 3 things

  • assets directory
  • music directory
  • kit.wzmkit

Place your cover.png and background.png in the "assets" folder, the file names HAVE to be exact.

Place your created mp3 files in the "music" folder.

It is important that you DONT delete for modify "kit.wzmkit" as this is used in the Workbench for selecting this directory to be used in a Workbench project.
