When extracting the game, it stops loading and eventually freezes when it reaches one certain song. This song is 1:36 minutes long and an mp3.

Is this your game or someone else's?

My game, both people I've asked have downloaded it have had the same error as me trying to extract it

So what troubleshooting have you tried?

Do you have other mp3 tracks, and have they been extracted by the time it crashes, or is this the first one to be attempted? Have you tried to change it to another format to see if it makes a difference? OGG might be better. You should be able to convert it using Audacity.

I swapped the song with a new copy of the same file of the same song, but this time it stopped extracting at another point... The old song file that originally didn't work is actually 10 minutes long, but it was somehow shortened to 1:36 after extracting it (I looked into the extracted folder and it only contained most of the music and 1:36 of the song that stopped the extraction). The program tries to extract this particular song about halfway through, other songs work. What difference could it make to convert it into .ogg when all other files work as .mp3s?

If I remember correctly, RMXP does not have problems with specific files but with total archive size.
so how big is your game?
it might be that this specific file is the one where the size limit is reached...

That sounds likely... I'm currently removing files that cause trouble in exporting since the file that the export stops at always changes. This would probably mean exactly what you said... Alright! Thanks, I'm gonna swap some files around... The game was 128 MB in EXE form.

I never used XP myself, but I think I heard about a workaround to the size limit. You'll have to search for yourself and hope it's still available somewhere however.

As far as I know, RpgXP does not encrypt sound files, so the error happens at the time of simple extraction.
Which version of your engine?

Peeps, can we just take some time to appreciate the mods here? They're so friendly, and they're always there for us when we need help. Now that I've been here for two years, I want to thank the mods and admins for keeping it positive here on the forum. They're the reason I've stayed so long! Here's to you!

I am finally done making the 'superbosses' in my game!
I'm happy because oh my gosh they were a lot of work, but I'm also sad because I love database work... And also because I loved making stupid powerful bosses ._.
