Here is the music i was talking about.

It also doesn't play when the game is loading either.

I have tried reinstalling the game, launching the game as administrator, launching the game from uplay (I have the steam version).
I also tried deleting the games SoundData folder and then verifying the integrity of game cache and the music still did not play.

All other music and sound in the game works perfect.

Odd, can't think what would cause that - check your sound options, maybe something got turned down?

I have messed around with them to try and fix the problem but that did not work.

AC2 has some of the best music I have ever heard ANYWHERE, EVER, PERIOD..... IT still haunts me to this day... It's amazing.... So I could absolutely understand not wanting to miss out on the crucial part of the experience. But if the only music you're missing is what you demonstrated above, the really uneventful ambient music in the menus and such, I'm not so sure you're missing much... If you verified game data I'm not sure what's causing that if you hear all of the other music in the game.

I have just found a fix.

1. Go here
Ubisoft Folder\Ubisoft Game Launcher\savegames\4d77yua25-3250-4ghy2-8ddc-2ac7896082ba1\4

("4d77yua25-3250-4ghy2-8ddc-2ac7896082ba1" this folder may be called something different on your PC.)

2. Delete the file called "1.save" (Make sure not to delete "2.save" as this is your actual save data)

3. set Uplay to offline mode.

4. Launch AC2 and you should hear the music at the title screen. This means it has worked.

5. Exit to windows and set Uplay back to online mode.

6. Launch the game and Uplay should tell you that the local data doesn't sync up with the cloud storage data.

7. you will be asked if you want to use the cloud file or the local file. Choose the LOCAL FILE.

Well done! It's always rewarding to see a user or OP fix their own issue. It means they also do their own research and don't merely rely on someone else to help. Congratulations!

Those were the only AC2 files that hadn't been touched during all the reinstalls.

He tried reinstalling the game and while the game files were replaced, the save files were not. There was something wrong with the cloud-sync save files causing his issues; maybe some untouchable setting disabling the menu music. He deleted that file because reinstalling the game wasn't affecting the files in the savegames folder.
