Fallout: New Vegas is a post-apocalyptic role-playing video game developed by Obsidian Entertainment and published by Bethesda Softworks. It was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 in October 2010. The game is a spiritual successor to Obsidian’s previous title, Fallout: New Vegas.

Like its predecessors, Fallout: New Vegas allows the player to take on the role of a character who can explore the game world and interact with its inhabitants. One of the new features in Fallout: New Vegas is the ability to add music to the game by modding it. This tutorial will show you how to do that.

1) Download a music mod file.

2) Extract the files from the mod archive into your Fallout: New Vegas “Data” folder. The Data folder is located in your Fallout: New Vegas installation directory (by default, this is C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\fallout new vegas).

3) Launch Fallout: New Vegas and select “Data Files” from the game’s launcher menu. Check the box next to the music mod file you just installed. If you have more than one music mod installed, you can check multiple boxes to have all of them active at once.

4) Quit out of the Data Files menu and launch the game normally. Your new music should now be playing in-game!

What you need

In order to add music to Fallout New Vegas, you will need two things:
1. A copy of Fallout New Vegas
2. A computer on which you will install the game and the music files

Adding music with Nexus Mod Manager

To add music to Fallout New Vegas using the Nexus Mod Manager, first download the desired music files. Next, launch the Nexus Mod Manager and click “Add Mod from File.” Locate and select the downloaded music files, then click “Open.” The Nexus Mod Manager will now install the music files into the game.

Adding music without Nexus Mod Manager

If you’re looking to add music to Fallout New Vegas without using Nexus Mod Manager, there are a few ways you can do it. One method is to use the in-game mod manager to install the music files directly into the game. The other way is to manually add the music files to the game’s installation directory.

Adding music without Nexus Mod Manager is a bit more complicated than using the manager, but it can be done if you’re willing to put in a bit of extra work. Here’s a quick guide on how to do it.

1) Find the music files you want to add to Fallout New Vegas. These can be in MP3 or FLAC format.

2) Place the music files in the following directory:

[ Fallout New Vegas Installation Folder ]\Data\Sound\Streams\Music

3) OpenFallout New Vegas and go to the main menu. Go to “Options” and then “Sound”. In the “Music Volume” section, make sure that “Number of active streams” is set to 8. This will ensure that all of the new songs will play correctly in-game.

Adding music with Fallout Mod Manager

The first way is to use Fallout Mod Manager.

Once you have both of those things, open up Fallout Mod Manager and click on the “Mods” tab. From there, click on the “Music” tab and then click on the “Add Music” button.

A window will pop up asking you to browse for the music files that you want to add. Find the files that you want to add, select them, and then click “Open.”

The files will be added to your queue. Once they are finished downloading, they will be automatically installed into your game. You can then activate them by checking the box next to their name and clicking “Enable.”

Adding music manually

In order to add music manually, you will need to locate the music files that you want to use. Once you have located the files, you will need to add them to the “Fallout New Vegas\Data\Music” folder.


In order to add music to Fallout New Vegas, you will need to create a sound file in .wav format and place it in the game’s “Data/Sound/Music” directory. Next, open up the “Fallout_custom_music.ini” file in a text editor and add the following line:

Custom Music=directory/filename.wav

Replace “directory/filename.wav” with the path and filename of your custom music file. You can now launch Fallout New Vegas and listen to your new music while exploring the wasteland!
