If you are using only my music/sound fx, and not that of another artist(s) then on your credits screen write:

If you are using my music/sound effects as well as those of another artist(s) then you need to identify which tracks (or sound effects) are mine and credit me, for example:

“Invasion of the Giant Disco Ants”

“Too Quiet”
