Default Is there any way I can add my own music?

I'd like to replace the default music with some classical music of my own. I see the file extensions end with .sw ...

Is there a way I can swap out some of the music?

You could turn off the music and start up winamp in the background.

.sw is the 22kHz signed word format of sox:

If you feel like doing some music conVersion of your own.

I don't suppose you could provide an appropriate SOX command line to convert the Falso Cantigas de Santa Maria in the game to .wav? I also presume they're in the three falsoXX.sw files ...

I'd like to be able to listen to this cantiga using WinAmp rather than in the game itself. TIA.

I'm no sox expert, but I'm pretty sure the sox manual will have some help for the interested one. If I remember correctly it was quite easy to use.

So for the original question, if he wanted his own coice of music to play...
he would need to convert a wav or something to a sox file (.sw) and name it the same as the three falso files in the rawsound directory?
There is no in-game option to play other files.

Would it be possible to add different music to each nation? It would be cool to create different themes.

Yep, looks like you can do pretty much anything you want with the sound. Here's a zip file containing all 3 "falso" tracks converted to .wav format (~35 megs):
