If this has already been posted, i'm sorry.

Probably some of you guys already knew about this, but it is easy to put some of your songs in the game.

Just open the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Focus Home Interactive\Cities XL 2011\Data\Sound\Music\XL (maybe your path is different, but you got the point) and DO NOT just simple replace the original songs with your own, nor just add yours. Instead, copy all this songs (the original in game) into a new folder and then put your ownn sountracks. After that (that's why you copied) rename your songs with the songs of the original.

For example:

I want to have Frank Sinatra "This Town"in my game and the file is named Franksinatra.mp3. All i have to do is rename this song to (for example) CXL_03_billie.

It has to be this one (the name of the original), since my attempts to just add "CXL_xx_name" made the game crash.

This way i  can  listen to (some) of my songs

Hope you enjoy

See ya!
