Can you update this for reforged?
I did not use the custom background menu for WC3 the first time I play it back in 2012 but I can tell you, this tool has been outdated and is ONLY mean for the Classic version of WC3. By the time when Blizzard released the latest patches, MPQs are now deprecated and were replaced by the CASC archive. This also applies to Reforged, which is not officially supported anymore due to the modern UI version that was implemented for Reforged instead of the usual animated version (originally enabled in the Classic version).

Because of this, you can't actually use the custom background menu for WC3 if you are using Reforged. However, if you are using the Classic version of WC3, even on 1.31, you can do this by reading this thread. Basically, you are going to locate the file called "MainMenu3d.mdx" (MainMenu3d_Exp.mdx for TFT), which is located in "UI/Glues/MainMenu" or "UI/Glues/MainMenu3D_Exp" folder. In order to open the MPQ/CASC, you'll need a tool like MPQ Editor or the CASC Viewer to extract those files.
Alternatively, you can use the "War3Mod.mpq" method or use the WC3 Mod Manager in order to use the custom files instead of the original ones.
If you are using the 1.31, which disables the "War3Mod.mpq" method, you can still use the traditional "Allow Local Files" method.
Just remember, do NOT open either MPQ Editor or CASC Viewer while the Warcraft is opened, as Tasyen suggested.

Check out those threads, they might help you:
Warcraft 3 Styler ++ Download ++ (Official Version)

Just to clarify:
1.The tool (WC3 Styler) is looking for the MPQ file, so it's not applicable to Warcraft 3 1.30+.
2.If you are using the latest version of WC3, some sound can't be played, especially the OGG ones. This has been confirmed with this thread.

You can also use the Local Files method in case the tool is not working. Just add this path:
After that, you can rename the MP3 files to the generic WC3 files such as "UndeadX1.mp3" and so on.
