I have a few games and such on CM9 such as gta3 with a lot of audio files associated with them. An issue this has caused is that in webOS all these audio files are resent in music players, and it is a good 200 or so files. Is there away to hide the files from webOS? Would putting a '.' infront of the files work or would that hide them from the android apps that use those files too?

No. If you do that, Android won't be able to find those files when you use their respective apps. However, you can hide webOS media from Android by adding a .nomedia empty file in the directory you want excluded.

Android does a good job of only finding actual music files, it leaves out all the files that are part of webos apps etc.

AFAIK Android isn't doing a good job of that, Android isn't looking at the folder trees that the webOS apps are in.

The reason the Android files show up in webOS is because they are actually installed in the partition webOS is supposed to be looking at for media. This is why webOS doesn't pick up webOS app files.
