I put up a demo of my project so far and someone pointed out that I should have music in my demo. Currently the music is being worked on and might take awhile, but I was wondering if it's possible to put in audio files that I can change later without having to update every instance of it in the editor?

I'll give an example:
While I'm waiting for my custom music, I decide to put some temporary BGMs in my project. I put in an OGG sound file (that's a non-original piece of music) and call it "projectBattleTheme.ogg". I get halfway through my project and my sound person finishes the battle theme. So I title the new original file as "projectBattleTheme.ogg" and replace the old one.

Now let's say in the editor/project, I call up that sound file on more than just default battles. When I update the file, will I have to update each instance in the editor where I've called upon that piece of music or will it update and work as it should?

The game will play whatever music file has the name 'projectBattleTheme.ogg'. You will not need to go back in and change anything in the database or events as long as the new music file has the same name as the old one.

If you overwrite an audio file, you will be absolutely fine. If you are wanting to change the actual file name from "projectBattleTheme.ogg" to something completely different, then you would have to go back through and change each audio file event individually. So, you are good if you just overwrite the audio files, yes.

If you had to change the name of the music file, you could just open up each map file (Map001.json, Map002.json, etc) and do a find/replace on the name of the file since all the data files in MV are plain text. Much easier than finding and updating each entry in the editor.

Dayumn, now that's a good trick.
Thanks for the responses, you two.

Update on the Unity thing: I had to redo all my map graphics for Unity because the originals were from XP, but it actually looks so much better now in Unity, so I genuinely might make the switch.
Messing around with fragment shaders (filters). This thing is HUGE and I'm surprised almost no one makes good use of. Even the number of plugins that do this stuff are limited.

There's 7 main areas in the game that are all connected. This train get's you from an underground lab to the center of someone's subconscious. inside the train you can talk to some of the passengers. but going to the top of it, there's battles.
Speedrunning all character portraits just so they all have the same quality. Not sure if this was a good idea, but now I'm almost done.
We now have a gameplay video!
