Thread: Has anybody figured out how to add your own menu music?

  1. #1

    Default Has anybody figured out how to add your own menu music?

    FSX was easy. Just drop in a .wav file and select it in the sound settings.

    With all these packaged elements of MSFS, not sure how to go about it and I'm all ready tired of the current three choices.

    I would like to know the answer to this question too. I had a great piece of music, (that i ripped from a Voz Australis video ) , for fsx and would like to have it back.

    I'd like Frank Sinatra's 'Come fly with me' or possibly 'Shine on you crazy diamond' part 1 by Pink Floyd.

    I found the file Music.PC.PCK in the folder
    Official\OneStore\fs-base-soundbanks\SoundBanks
    Anybody know how to open a PCK file?

    Here I was happy with the Top Gun theme, Danger Zone and the music from the 2015 Boeing 787 Paris Airshow video on YouTube

    Think the menu music is tucked away inside here...

    Greetings Charles and welcome to FlightSim!

    LOL Your post was not there when I came to the same conclusion a day later I guess new members posts must get delayed for approval.

    If you want to experiment with the file, BE SURE TO MAKE A BACKUP FIRST. I was hoping there was a way to add music to the Community folder so we wouldn't have to monkey with the original file.

    Just found this on Google...

    pck files are simply compressed versions of other files (mainly xml files). You can decompress them in a new folder with any application that handle zip, rar, gz, 7z files, then edit the decompressed ones in an xml editor (notepad++ is a good free one).

    A good find dogdish, but xml files don't play sounds unfortunately. I did a search myself and found a Wwise Unpacker on Github here: https://github.com/Vextil/Wwise-Unpacker
    It works, you can copy the MUSIC.PC.PCK file into the Wwise Unpacker 'Game Files' folder, then run either the MP3 or OGG batch file. I ended up with 42 music mp3 files, mostly ambient sounds with one or two music tracks. I've no idea how you'd recompress them into pck format though.

    Were those the Color 1 and Color 2 of the menu music?

    Possibly but split into two or three sections. The files are named music_01 and so on, not the track titles as they appear in the sim. I've now found the Wwise Soundbank app, but it's payware with a free trial. Maybe that would decompress and recompress the files, and show their track names etc.
