It won't cause any problems. You could always click Open With... and choose media player or something.

You could try RegCleaner. It has a function that lets you delete file associations.

When you open the program you'll see tabs along the top. Click 'File Types', scroll down to '.ogg' and delete it. Restart your machine, then see if it's removed the association with Notepad.

And be careful with it, registry editors can screw things up if you delete something you shouldn't.

What is the extension of the file? If it is still .ogg then the game will still be able to open it and play it. If it is ".ogg.txt" then remove the extra ".txt". If it is .txt then rename it to .ogg.

The game is not using an external program to play the music. If it were, then it would not have been a blank file association to being with. I have all my .ogg files linked to Winamp, and there are no issues.

I was thinking that, but opening a sound file in Notepad wouldn't change all the extensions to .txt, would it? :uhoh:

Regardless, as FourAces said, the game should still recognise them if the extension is .ogg. No matter what you've set to open them with.

No it should not. It should not rename them at all since, as you said it is just a file association in the registry. Luka00 said that he had accidentally changed the file to a text file, so it is possible that he saved it with a default addition of .txt to the file name.
