Fix for the frustrating audio bug present in LC Become Jarl of Ivarstead.

Information

LC Become Jarl of Ivarstead has an annoying bug that can happen where the audio for fans cheering in the arena becomes stuck in the queue, similar to what can happen with regular or dragon combat music in vanilla Skyrim.

This causes the arena music file not to not play in the arena, but it plays indefinitely if you tab out and back into the game. It also causes a few other tracks not to play when they should: the dragon (boss) combat music, dragon soul absorbed chanting sound effect and location discovered sound effect. 

This is apparently due to a conflict with the Dragonborn DLC, as stated in here in the forums. It can be fixed by removing the arena music track using the console when you load a save. 

I first experienced this bug years ago in my playthrough containing the mod, found the forum post after a difficult search and figured out this method to fix it. I re-created along with the list of mods I used so I could pick up where I left off with my LE save, which I later continued onto SE with my port: LC Become Jarl of Ivarstead SE - Port with Expansion and Voices Fix. I thought I’d post it here to help out anyone else with the same problem.

This fix can be used with either version of the game and mod. Follow the instructions below to setup your batch file.

Installation Instructions

Use mine
1. Download the main file of this mod, unzip it and place the ram.txt file in the root folder of your game installation.
2. Launch the game and load a save.
3. Type "help lcsarena" into the console to display the IDs of the relevant functions.
4. Find "MUSC: MUSLCsArenaMusic" and note down it's ID, e.g. "0c01fd26".
5. Replace "0c01fd26" in the text file with your ID and save it. It should still read as "removemusic 0c1fd26", but with your ID.
6. Save the file.

OR

Create your own
1. Launch the game and load a save.
2. Type "help lcsarena" into the console to display the IDs of the relevant functions.
3. Find "MUSC: MUSLCsArenaMusic" and note down it's ID, e.g. "0c01fd26".
4. Create a text file called ram.txt (or a name of your choice, but the less to type the better) in the root folder of your game installation.
5. Type "remove music" and then this ID into the text file so it reads as "removemusic 0c1fd26", but with your ID.
6. Save the file.

Usage Instructions
Simply type "bat ram" (or replace "ram" with the different name you chose, ram = remove arena music) into the console and it will remove the track. You may need to do this every time you load a save if the bug persists, but it should stop if you continue on playing.]

Notes
If your ID happens to be the same as mine then we coincidentally have the mod at the same spot in our load orders. You could just use my file without any edits.

You can also achieve the same affect by removing the file extension of the text file in the root folder, or changing it to ".bat" and moving it into the data folder.
