Music change on UO Outlands with T2A songs.
(works with both, the new CUO client and the old 2D client)

Some time ago I found on the net the old Ultima Online music - re-worked tunes from the old MIDI files from UO Renaissance client. The maker is Dinaris Techarin and he says he (re)built every song with some music composition software he developed as a hobby: (
uo.stratics.com/content/music/techarinmusic.shtml), (www.angelfire.com/rpg/techarin/). They are EXCEPTIONAL songs, way better in my opinion than the Ultima 9 style songs found in the modern UO. To my joy I see they are now included in the song package of UO Outlands with "2T2A" prefix. In my opinion these songs creates an amazing atmosphere on Ultima Online.

SAMPLE: Here is a MP4 video file (HEVC1 codec) with music for different Avadon cities after the change (~31Mb): https://1drv.ms/v/s!AqtI3rSJQnG_lhanTaBj8bG4d_6-?e=FkEsHI

DOWNLOAD: Since the songs are already included on Outlands installer, to have the game play them, only a modified Config.txt is needed. The zip archive containing it can be downloaded from here (~<1Kb): https://1drv.ms/u/s!AqtI3rSJQnG_lhsK4hg1eP6nYwvP?e=v8Xl1I

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:
- Locate UO Outlands music folder (example: C:\Games\Ultima Online OUTLANDS\music\Digital\).
- Make a backup of your original "Config.txt" file, by renaming it to something like "Config ORG.txt".
- Unpack from the zip my "Config.txt" on the "music" folder.
- When you run the game from Outlands launcher, DO NOT patch the "Config.txt" file.


Enjoy.

Music change on Outlands with Renaissance songs (for the old 2D client).
I am planning to make this pack available for CUO as well in the future.

These songs are not a simple conversion from MIDI to MP3.
They are EXCEPTIONAL songs, way better in my opinion than the Ultima 9 style songs found in the modern UO Classic client. UO Outlands have a version of these songs included but they are not the same as the ones in this package. In my opinion these songs creates an amazing atmosphere on my Ultima Online game.


SAMPLE: Here is a MKV HEVC1 video file with music for different Outlands cities after the change (~70Mb): https://mega.nz/#!VChwRS6C!AjDarBjVqOvmjF7Ccb4TgoFrYbKTaBz5Z06Esr9rk2I

DOWNLOAD: The package with the modified songs can be downloaded from here:
UO Music edited by Tyr Antilles.zip (~147Mb): https://mega.nz/#!UKRkEAIS!UJZo0D5XAYu3yr8kbRRStCf9nB4Y7utSVezxBHLyIo0


INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:
- Unpack "UO Music edited by Tyr Antilles.zip" to a temp folder.
- Run UO Outlands from the LAUNCHER and make sure you are up to date. Then close the game.
- Locate UO Outlands music folder (example: C:\Games\Ultima Online OUTLANDS\music\).
- Rename the folder called Digital from the music folder to something like Digital OUTLANDS.
- Go to the temp folder and unpack "Digital.rar" on the game's music folder.
- Without using the launcher, start UO Outlands from UO Steam or Razor included in the game's folder. This way the modified music folder won't get deleted and replaced with Outlands defaults.
That's it.
- To be sure you stay up to date when a new patch is announced, go to music folder, rename the Digital folder to something like Digital RENAISSANCE and rename back the original Outlands folder from Digital OUTLANDS to Digital. Run the launcher to patch the game, then rename back the two folders and start the game from UO Steam or Razor directly.

And finally, arranged the combat music. The pack should be OK now and is available for download from the first post of this thread. I will change it further only if I discover new areas that triggers more songs.
