    Tried to get mine to play but when I try the handle moves but no music is playing. The box use to work fine the last time I tried, I did add some new music tracks that I collected from the abyss. Any one else having this problem or have any suggestions on how to fix the problem. I tried moving it to another location, but the box would still not work.

    Thx for any advice Rip :popcorn:

    Is your sound turned up enough to hear it?

    Umm tried all of the above already, I hear all of the other sounds in the game just fine. Mapper if you have a chance stop by my house on Europa and try it out and see if you hear anything. It's located on the first floor and can be used by anyone. The house is located upper left corner against the wall in Zento. Large water fall on the corner of the house and owned by me.

    Thx Rip.

    It's possible to hear other sounds in the game but have music specifically turned off. Do you hear any music at all?

    Hmm ok it works for you so it must be something that I'm not doing. Thank you for checking it out for me, It's just a matter of figuring it out now :).

    The answer is I suspect surprisingly simple; Is the new track you added "City Night"? If so, it seems now to be just extremely quiet background sounds of the countryside (birds tweeting and crickets are about the only thing you can make out), and then it stops.

    Selecting the SAME song as is currently playing will also refuse to re-start it again, which can also make the box seem like it's broken with either the above track, other tracks with a quiet introduction, or tracks with an infinite empty space ("Conversation with Gwenno" is one) after the music ends... because it's hard to tell the track is actually playing at that point still.

    Changing track too fast after selecting a previous one can also make the handle spin but the new track won't start. Give it a few seconds.

    And one final bug, just in case the devs look here; "Northern Forest" from the new songs is STILL pointing to "Battle On Stones" instead. Give us the true "Northern Forest" track :p

    I just got home after work and checked my setting's as far as making sure the sound is on etc. Everything is set to have it work properly, I tried differant sound tracks, and cranked up the sound etc., I have extra speakers for the sound in my system but it still does not work.

    The only thing that I can think of is I had problems patching the last few patches and had to use a thumb nail drive from my lap top and down load the latest version of UO from thier. It would not down load properly to my main computer, so I figure that something was lost during the process. Four or five months ago I never had this problem before, at this point I give up but I appreciate all the great advice everyone has given :).
