Hi, I have just downloaded Steve Rots Doom tribute and I thought I would try it with glBoom+ 2507 test.
Using XWE I have made a wad. Loaded the tune for E1M1 into the wad then renamed the lump entry to D_E1M1.
When I try this wad with glBoom+ there is no background music only silence. I have tried the same wad with GZDoom and it works as expected.
In the past I have used the same technique but with OGG files and they have worked as expected in glBoom+.
Is there something else I need to do, do I need to install something for mp3 playback or is this a problem with glBoom / prBoom?
Please help. Thanks in advance.

    On Windows SDl_mixer plays mp3 with smpeg.dll. Probably you need it too. Google it.

    From http://prboom.sourceforge.net/linux.html:
    SDL_mixer, from its home page. You might need to compile and install SMPEG first to compile this
