    Is there a version for people who don't use the steam client because I don't have an MP3 folder in my Cache folder infact, that whole folder is somewhere else away from the main appdata folder. There is an MP3 folder in my appdata folder but after the 4th everything gets removed and step I don't get any options to do the 5th step. Can someone go into more details, I'm using Windows 7?

    Just follow what I posted. I've been using a backed up MP3 folder from a previous install of the game and I have all the music back except for the title screen music which is either missing or has been uncorrectly coded. Like I said, it will stay like that untill probably the next patch, which hopefully will fix that issue.

    Thanks, I did just that. I had another copy of mabinogi on another computer that wasn't updated and just copied over files from it and somehow it worked.

    Does this work for the Nexon launcher?

    I hit repair installation in the Nexon Launcher and watching it redownload all the mp3 files right now. Gonna protect the files as posted earlier once it's finished.

    TEMPORARY FIX FOUND:

    1. Go to Mabinogi's Game Cache files
    2. Right click on mp3 folder and go to Properties
    3. Go to Security tab and press Advanced
    4. Disable the inheritance
    5. Deny all access to "write" except You, Administrators, and Users
    6. HAVE FUN WITH DAT MUSIC!!! MUSIC IS BACK!

    (Start Mabinogi screen BGM seem to not work.)

    @Hold Can you then try locking THE mp3 folder or go to where Client.exe is located in and lock that mp3 folder? There should be an mp3 folder next to it, otherwise, I am not sure at all.

    Wow, bizarre, I just checked, and there's only 56 files in the mp3 folder (so, I must be missing something else)... What the heck happened here...? And anyone got a ZIP archive of the complete set of music?

    And here I was, thinking it was just a bug on my end... I had no idea the update DELETED a bunch of music...

    @Erika Try to verify the game cache. If you are using Nexon Launcher, I am not aware of it, you might have to reinstall the game.
    Also to make sure to try out my method of locking the mp3 folder. It is in previous post.

    I don't think it's an update problem, because I repaired the install, and two minutes later all the files were gone again. Maybe it's a problem with the operating system? Like, the way Windows reads files?

    I don't know, I'm just throwing in an idea.

    Did you relaunch the game after? I think people were saying it eats the files when the game launches, not necessarily when it updates

    Repair installation on the Nexon Launcher will redownload the files

    The problem started after the update so it's not a problem with the OS. I've also noticed that all the mp3 files are there prior to launching the game but once I loaded into the world there was no music. Browsing the mp3 folder, the files were gone again. But replacing the mp3 files after they were gone didn't brought the issue back. My deduction is that there's a game file that is deleting some of the other files and possibly deleting itself as well.

    I think it might be NGS, because as soon as it launched, those files disappeared. Thought I am willing to take any other opinions; I'm just speculating here.

    Also, in case you have a download limit on your isp, when you repair installation, make a copy of the mp3 folder when it's done repairing and save it somewhere. That way you wont need to keep re-downloading 1 GB worth of files each time. And you wont need to manually download the files from a 3rd party site.

    Ok, just found out that it fixed some of the songs, but not all of them. I'm going to go and chronicle what's not making noise like it should (at least on my end).

    Silent
    Tir Chonaill (plains, graveyard, southern plains with wolves, town)
    Dunbarton
    Filia Area: Shyllien Reserve, Castanea's House/NPC
    Vales Area: Hillwen Mines (Entrance, B1-3),
    Cor Area: Every NPC (though the jungle noise plays near Tupai and Ruwai),
    Belvast Area: Admiral Owen's Theme (Belvast's theme music itself is fine), Odran's Post Area/NPC, Scathach, Shayla (does she have NPC music?)
    Taillteann Area: Taillteann (town), Every NPC (includes Tarlach and Berched).
    Tara Area: Tara, Padan, Corrib Valley

    Can't be NGS either or else the temp fix would not be working

    @SacredFlair Try my method on my previous post. Also, make sure to turn ON the Read-only option.

    For me the temp fix doesn't work.
    EDIT: Yes it does, but it rather strange. Open up the mp3 folder, and make sure all of the files in the folder are read only. Fastest way is:
    1) Ctrl+A,
    2) right-click,
    3) Go to "Properties",
    4) Select "Read-Only"

    Works for me, hopefully for the rest of you, too.
