How to "Change" UO Music
If you're tired of the music in Ultima Online, or just want to update to some modern music, you can easily swap out the files and have your own music on while you play.
First We need to find the folder where UO keeps its music. The default path is:
C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Ultima Online\Music\Digital
If this isn't where you put it, use the Search program to find where the Ultima Online folder is, then proceed from there.

OK, so you have found the music folder and music files, but how do we change them? This is quite simple. Go to the place where your music is stored, open a new window and find the music files you'd like to hear in-game. Let's say we want to change the music from the town of Moonglow to your music file.
Step 1: Copy and paste the music files you want to hear into the Digital folder.
Step 2: Find the Moonglow music file. Mine is "Moonglowpos"
Step 3: Append a (1) to the Moonglow music file. Moonglowpos becomes Moonglowpos(1)
Step 4: Rename your music file to Moonglowpos. Now, every time you step into Moonglow, you will hear your music instead of the Moonglow town anthem.


Some places or actions have multiple music files attached to them. If you only replace one file, your music will only have a random chance of being played until the other music files have been replaced as well. For instance, when you go into War mode, UO has about 3 or 4 different songs (which I will post if asked) that all need to be changed.

The music you want to use has to be in MP3 format
You can replace music files with as many different combinations of music as you want. For example, If I wanted 3-4 different songs for War mode instead of just the Blood Rave from the first Blade movie, I could put in some Elton John or some other music in addition to the Blood Rave. Then I might hear Blood Rave or Elton John while I'm hitting things.

Not all places or actions are their namesake. You will have to do some listening and comparing to locate the correct places to swap.

I hope being able to listen to your own music will make your gaming experience better.

Please post some music selections here on the forum

I use a few great music files:

Excaliber soundtrack
Blade Soundtrack
Rise of the Valkyrie
300 soundtrack
William Tell Overture
Let the bodies hit the floor
Mortal Combat soundtrack

These are just a few fun selections, there are endless combinations to explore to help customize your gaming experience!
