This mod changes the main menu music (or theme) into a Dragonborn Comes cover by Jeff Winner. Check it out on YouTube!


This mod comes in three versions:

Full version
This contains the full song.
Roughly, the full version sounds like this.

Calm version
This version starts of at a calm moment and stays calm for the first minute. After that, it continues with the epicness.
Roughly, the calm version sounds like this.

Epic version
This version starts with a small build up and then gets to the point quickly. Very good version for those that want some sound after starting up Skyrim.
Roughly, the epic version sounds like this.


~ NMM ~
Download with manager, choose a version from the installer and enjoy!

~ Manual ~
Choose one version from the optional files and copy it into your data folder.
If you're asked to overwrite, you've already installed a main menu music replacer.


~ NMM ~
Click the mod and click the blue puzzle piece with the red arrow to the left.
Or to completely remove, click the red X marker.

~ Manual ~
Delete this file: datamusicspecialmus_maintheme.xwm


Q: Is this mod compatible with <mod>?
A: This mod is compatible with all mods, except those that (also) replace the main menu music.

Q: Should I clean this mod?
A: Seriously? No, there's no .esp file, so nothing to clean!

Q: Which version do you use?
A: Epic version is my favorite.

Q: Can I use all three and make Skyrim choose one at random?
A: Yes. Though setting this up requires a lot of manual installing and SKSE.

Note: I'll assume you know enough to follow these instructions without much guidance. Otherwise, I advise watching Gopher's Beginner's Guide. He will tell you all you need to know.

In order to set this up, you'll need another mod that has a randomizer plugin for SKSE. That mod allows you to choose a background image or randomize background images. So the next step depends on whether you want to replace the main menu background image or not.

~ I want to replace the main menu backgroud image ~
Ok, so follow these steps:
1. Download this mod: main menu wallpaper replacer HD 1080p now with randomizer manually.
This mod contains a SKSE plugin, which is what you need. The plugin is what will randomly select a background each time you start up Skyrim. The plugin is located at "data/SKSE/Plugins/rmm_plugin.dll"

2. Download the NMM installer version of this mod manually. Open the archive and extract the directories.

3. Consider downloading other background replacers, like Skyrim 50 HD NEW Main Menu Collection and Civil War Themed Main Menu

4. Consider downloading other main menu music replacers, like Hoths Main Menu Music Replacer and Skyrim Main Menu Music - Peter Hollens and Lindsey Stirling.

5. Open up the "mainmenuwallpapers" folder from the main menu wallpaper replacer mod. Here's where you'll make all your changes. You can manually add folders and place other backgrounds in there.

For the purpose of this mod, each and every folder that contains a background replacer will need a music replacer as well (or that background image will have the default Skyrim theme during the main menu).

So each folder in "mainmenuwallpapers" will have:
<folder name>datameshesinterfacelogoLOGO.nif
<folder name>datamusicspecialmus_maintheme.xwm
<folder name>datatexturesinterfaceobjectsmainmenuwallpaper.dds

Quick note for Mod Organizer users: Installing the randomizer through MO is possible. The downside is that the file it picks will be placed in the Overwrite "mod". This is not a problem, since it will be replaced when another file is randomly picked. But if you don't give all folders a music replacer, it's not the vanilla Skyrim music that will be used, but the music found in the Overwrite "mod".

~ I don't want to replace the main menu background image ~
In that case, here's what you'll have to do:
1. Got to main menu wallpaper replacer HD 1080p now with randomizer and in the MISCELLANEOUS FILES section, download the "randomizer plugin stand alone version" and extract it in you data folder. You should now have a plugin located at: "data/SKSE/Plugins/rmm_plugin.dll".
Installing it through NMM or adding it to the manually created folder structure for use in NMM is possible.

2. Download the NMM installer version of this mod manually. Open the archive and extract the directories.

3. Consider downloading other main menu music replacers, like Hoths Main Menu Music Replacer and Skyrim Main Menu Music - Peter Hollens and Lindsey Stirling.

4. Create a folder structure like this:

datamainmenuwallpapers<Full version folder>datamusicspecialmus_maintheme.xwm
datamainmenuwallpapers<Calm version folder>datamusicspecialmus_maintheme.xwm
datamainmenuwallpapers<Epic version folder>datamusicspecialmus_maintheme.xwm
datamainmenuwallpapers<Hoth replacer folder>datamusicspecialmus_maintheme.xwm (Optional)
datamainmenuwallpapers<Peter and Lindsey replacer folder>datamusicspecialmus_maintheme.xwm (Optional)

Example

datamainmenuwallpapersJeffWinnerCalmdatamusicspecialmus_maintheme.xwm

Q: How can it be that this mod description is so long for such a simple mod?
A: Because I like to give people an overdoses of useful information.
