The files are placed in
%elona%\user\music and referenced in the
music.txt file found therein.
To restore the original music.txt, just delete your custom one and start the game again. This will automatically copy the music.txt file from
%elona%\original. You may also copy the file across manually.
Important: the order of the files determines what audio file is played when, not the codes.

The only apparent purpose of the
mcXxxx ID codes is for convenience and they may be replaced with anything you prefer; however, filenames must be followed by at least one tab, otherwise, Elona will crash when it attempts to play the file.
Also note that MIDI files have somewhat of an advantage over mp3's files. Elona can vary the pitch, rate, etc of a MIDI to allow for more variety in music. Music saved in other formats (such as mp3) does not have this possibility, and will sound exactly the same every time they're played.
The Elona+ mod of Elona expands the number of music tracks in the game greatly. Some tracks that were not previously used where they should be, such as the last boss theme, are implemented in the mod.
The list itself leaves untouched anything up to the last track, mcIntro on file line 41. However, the tracks in-game that can be played with music CDs have been slightly changed, as the first line (mcReset) is no longer included. So, BGM0 in game will now play line number 2 instead, and the last track mcIntro which was formerly BGM40 is now BGM 39. Track numbers listed below reflect this change.
|10||dwarf.mid||mcPuti||Hill of mushroom, Rust Plaza|
|12||climax.mid||mcBoss2||Final levels in the Machinery Fort, the Valley of Hereafter, and the Chaos Shrine, Dragon volcano (first floor)|

|26||town2l.mid||mcCasino||Mirage Tower (second floor)|
|28||memory2.mid||mcRuin||Deep-sea castle, Ulm-Leson, and the Ancient Garden|
Tracks listed here were not in the original list. The track list has expanded a couple of times since the mod was released, so this list could be longer in the future.
Some tracks which have no location may play during some cutscenes which do not activate in the English version of the game.
