Update 28/10/2018 - Variants
You can now have variants for different scenarios, you can see which scenarios allow for variants in the table above.
Variants are completely optional.
Variants are automatically selected every time a player joins a server via the convar cl_musickit_variant 1-3
The Convar does not save, as it is intentional behavior for the variants to be randomized at join time.
You can have a maximum of 3 variants per scenario.
For clarification, the file names listed above, some scenarios, for backwards compatibility reasons, the first variants should be the first file name.
mainmenu.mp3 for Variant #1
mainmenu_02.mp3 for Variant #2 etc.
