Customize official soundscapes?

A Forum Thread for Left 4 Dead 2

There are certain - ...ambiences? - I want to add to the levels, but I apparently can't figure out how to customize soundscapes.

First I tried putting the soundscape entry (c2m2.fairgrounds.ext1) in c2m2_fairgrounds_level_sounds and added a playrandom event to it:

"playrandom"
   
    {
        "time"        "1,2"
        "volume"    "1"
        "soundlevel"    "SNDLVL_NONE"

        "rndwave"
       
        {
            "wave"    "Music/PortNoirBattle.wav"
        }

    }

...but nothing happened in-game.

Then I tried making a scripts folder in my mod and pasting soundscapes_campaign2, again with my addition. Still nothing.

Google doesn't know how to edit these things, either, before you ask. XD

    After some testing, my edited file IS in the right place, but for some reason my entry just doesn't work. I thought maybe changing SNDLVL_NONE and adding "position random" would fix it, but nope! I'm lost.
    ALL the sound files!
