ok so i found this tutorial on a site so imma share my discovery with EMUDEVS

Things you will need:

1) Taliis
2) Landik's MPQEditor
3) SoundEntries.dbc
4) Music you want to add!(mp3 format only)


Ok, now we must open Taliis, click file>open>SoundEntries.dbc (you should of made a copy of that file to use).

Double-click the SoundEntries.dbc to the left, then click "strings" at the top you see a textbox with
a green "+" sign.

First replace the text in the textbox with "Sound\Music" then click the "+" sign

scroll down on the strings, if you see it, you added it!

Now also you need to add the exact names of your music files and add

lets say I wanted to add JustLootIt by Nyhm, I would rename the file to "justlootitnyhm.mp3"
then after I add that as a string too I would go to the first "Table" in the list to the left.


Ok, now that you have the "Table" open at the top, now find a music file with the column #1 as 28. its pretty far
down just scroll till you find one.

left-click it once, then right-click it and click clone selected row(s).

Scroll to the bottom, and you will see a row with the EXACT same name as the one you cloned!

Now change the ID or as you see it column #0, change it to an unused ID, mine was 18020.

Then go back to "strings" and find the number next to the string you added! Then go to the "Table"
again and go to your row,
click on the name, and you will see it change to numbers, change the numbers to
the ones that you just got from your string that you added as soon as you get the numbers in, you will see the name
change. do this for column 2 and 3...

NOTE: 2 is the folder name 3 is the file name

Now change columns 4-12 to 0

change column 13 to 1
change column 14-22 to 0....

Now go back to "strings" and look for the string id that you made for "Sound\Music", remember that ID!

Now place the ID of "Sound\Music" in column 23.

column 24 to 0.9 (volume 90%)...

column 25 needs to be 0 and leave the rest the way they are!

Now click File>Save As save it in a place the doesn't
already have a SoundEntries.dbc in it!!!! (By the way that just added one song,
if you added more strings for more songs,
you have to clone another row and do the same process for each song.)


Now lets make the patch for it almost done....

Open Landik's MPQEditor (make sure you have extracted the file)...
Click MPQs and click New...
Call it Patch-S.MPQ Create empty MPQ archive.... size 8... Finish...

Right-Click Patch-S.mpq to the left, then click "New Folder"

Name it "DBFilesClient" without the quotes.

right-click "DBFilesClient" and click "Add Files..."

add your SoundEntries.dbc to that folder...

After that right-click Patch-S again>NewFolder name it "Sound"....

Now right-click "Sound" and
click New Folder and name it "Music"

Now Right-Click "Music" and click "add Files...." and add your .mp3's to that folder.....

Now close Landik's MPQ editor, move your edited SoundEntries.dbc to your core/dbc folder replacing the other one, put the
Patch-S in your wow/data folder

Login and use the .playall {ID} command and play the id of your song!

Don't forget that anyone on your server will need your patch to hear the songs too :)

Would look nice if you used quote tags and did steps as lists. Also, all the red together kinda hurts.

this was not my tutorial. i only shared it and put formatting to it.
besides i dont like tutorials with screenshots.
screenshots go away sometimes because they are removed by the host. when that happens tutorials die so to speak.
