According to https://needformadness.fandom.com/wiki/Hack "zipo" files are simply renamed zip files. So I guess you will have to put your MOD file in a zip archive, and then change its extension from .zip to .zipo.

It's not working. The game still doesn't play music. Btw if I open orginal game song .zipo in notepad at the first line is written "PK" but in .mod file that I downloaded from this site on the first line is written "zip'o'chip #foxx / silents" (foxx / silents it's probably title).

In the game folder, I would imagine that the mod is a standard zipfile, then change the extension to zipo.

Downloading the file from here, the file isn't compressed, so you need to compress with something that supports zipfiles and change the extension to zipo.

Good to hear that it's working. "PK" is the magic identifier of ZIP files, so that confirms that those files are indeed ZIP files. The first thing to see in a MOD file is indeed its title.
