How to change the soundtrack

This tutorial will show you how to change the music that plays in a particular sector (no modding experience required!)

1. First you need the track you want to replace the ES standard with in .mp3 format, if the track you want isnt in .mp3 format, any reasonable audio editing/recording program will convert it.

Image

2. Once you have the file in the right format, use the list above to find out the 5-digit number of the soundtrack you want to replace,as a rough guide 00019 to 00040 and 06201 to 08106 are the sector music files, 01001 to 01005 are the combat music files, and the rest are plot-related. for this tutorial i'm going to replace the president's end soundtrack (number 06021) with a track from Jeff Wayne's Music Version of The War Of The Worlds, which you can listen to here

Image

3. Next navigate to the soundtrack folder, that can normaly be found at C:>Program Files>EGOSOFT> X3 Terran Conflict > Soundtrack. Locate the original file and Rename/Delete it (I recomend renaming it so you can go back to the old version)

Image

4. Copy your replacment file into the directory and re-name it to the 5-digit number you found out earlier.

Image

5. Close all open windows and run the game, the track you chose should now play.

Image

note: Combat music is chosen at random, so if you want to hear your own music, replace all the files

p.s Could a moderator add this thread to the Tutorals and Resources Stickie?

Many thanks for taking the time to compile this list, I had searched many times for the music for Heretics End (really not keen on it) and never found it. This will help a lot.

Once again many thanks.

...Or simply change the sector's used music file in the galaxy editor.

Going through the soundtracks trying to find the Missile Alert effect. Figured I'd contribute.

Many of the ones labeled "Empty" sound like engine noises.
00014 - Manual Docking theme
02001 to 02006 - These appear to be the noises factories make when you fly past them.
08211 - Former spacewalk boarding music. Is it still?
08213 - This is an Unknown Sector theme, I think. Reminds me of the area around Maelstrom/Gaian Star, though I'm not sure.
08234 to 08236 - Sounds of the marines as they progress through the ship
08255 - Unknown Sector theme
08403 - Main title theme
08501 - This is "desolate" sector background music...pirate sectors?
08502 - Terran sector background music...occurs somewhere within the first mission of the Terran plot.
08504 - "Known" sector music, I think. Don't remember where.
08505 - Oh, god, I hate this track...it's the Unfocussed Jumpdrive sector music...it burns!
08506 - Aldrin sector background music
08507 - Terran sector background music
08508 - Terran sector background music

Was playing X2 today and recognized these:
06019
06131
06141
They play in the background during the Terracorp office scenes and while accessing the Argonopedia in Antigone Memorial.

:b Thanks for these descriptions. I went through and replaced all the sector and battle music with Battlestar Galactica music today and it was well worth it!

I think the default volume on most of the X3 tracks is quite high, so it would take some remixing to make a smooth mix of both X3 and 'other' music, but a straight swap out is working brilliantly. Thanks again!

08504 - Venus
08508 - Mars
08511 - Earth (as in the sector, not the track title)
08314 - Heretic's End (not 03003 or 00037 as listed in the OP)


**Edit** Added Earth, Mercury

An audio related question for the game

Post by GruntOfAction » Thu, 10. Dec 09, 22:24

In the Soundtrack folder does anyone know which number the Ore Belt music is? I found the game over music, fight music, and almost all the sector songs. Except for Ore belt. And I'd really like to know which one it was.

Reason being is I'm planning to change the audio in certain sectors. As well as the fight music. Nothing wrong with it. I'd just like to hear Master of Puppets when I'm killing pirates. :D

Deleting my thread and sending me a PM to this one would have sufficed instead of public humiliation.

"earth" is just the title of the track, it was plot-related music in x3:R
