    I've had RPG Maker 2003 for a while now, and this problem has only just come up recently and I have no idea how to fix it. Sound effects work just fine, but the music won't play at all, imported music will still work, but the original music for RPG Maker 2003 just won't play.


    I looked up this issue online and saw people talking about making sure the SW Synth on my PC isn't muted, but I can't figure out how to access that on my PC (I have Windows 8)


    Any ideas on how I can fix this?

    Download a MIDI codec. Newer versions of Windows don't always come with one.


    Alternatively, convert the RTP music into another file format, such as MP3. Not everyone who plays your game will have a MIDI codec these days, so it's a better idea to avoid the format altogether (which is a massive shame IMO).
