The music should definitely work since it's ogg file that works as a mod.
Is the full path is still under saved game/dcs/missioneditor/themes/main/me/sounds.... or something else??
thank you

Yea the instructions aren't quite clear on the file path for the BGM.

Is it still in Saved Games or the root DCS directory? DCS seems to automatically create folders for 'Sounds/EditorMusic' under 'MissionEditor/themes/main' but placing the audio files in there doesn't seem to work for me.

Ah, I think I see what the issue is, even if we put MainMenuLoop.ogg into that directory, DCS will still try to play MainMenuIn.ogg first, and if there isn't one present in the Saved Games directory, it'll go to default.

I just made a copy of the MainMenuLoop and renamed it to MainMenuIn and it works.
