How do you do it? I do not see where to load new file. I tried the replace function in the Edit drop down but the Load button doesn't open my windows to select anything. Thank you.

It's easier if you edit the map.i3d within text editor.
Search for xml tags <AudioSource ... /> - the attribute fileId=.. points to the audio file in section <Files>.
There you can change the filename to your desired sound.

If you're unsure about about location, load the map into GE. First you have to make the audio sources 'visible': menu View -> Show -> Audio Sources. Then look for the audio within map and note the ID for search with text editor.

Thanks a bunch. Do you know how to fix a broken log trigger. I copied and pasted one from the same map. The log depot was way to far away and I wanted it closer so I made one. I added the trigger as well and saved. I then open the map in game and I see the section where the logs go. When i put logs on it they do not register, usually they disappear right from the log transport. I don't know what is happening. Thanks again

I can only guess:
- perhaps you didn't copy the complete transform group for the trigger and now something is missing
- perhaps the log trigger has an individual identifier, which exists now twice (to origin)
