Custom Music - Mech Warrior 2
« on: January 25, 2011, 04:12:40 AM »
I recently discovered that I could import the Mech Warrior 2 soundtrack into iTunes, and it being such a great soundtrack I wanted to try it out in Brytenwalda for battle and travel, so converted the files to ogg audio files, and thanks to the help of our friendly neighbourhood Brytenmodders learned how to get them to work with the mod. 

The simplest way is to tack the music files you wish to use and rename them to the music file you wish to replace, and replace it (having first backed up all the original music, of course).  The naming system for the music is pretty self-explanatory in terms of the situations where a track will play.  I kept a changelog for which track replaced what, here it is:

And if any of you are interested in the Mech Warrior 2 music, it being the best game soundtrack ever, I realize that not everybody might have a copy of that game handy, it being 15 years old and all, so I found this link to something called the videogame music preservation foundation, with the tracks for Mech, conveniently in the OGG format.

Great soundtrack in opening post!


However, everyone knows the best soundtrack is not Mechwarrior, but Hearts of Iron 2!

Betrayal at Krondor (CD Audio version).  This game was so good I bought the CD version even though I already had the floppy 3.5" version just for the clearer soundtrack.

Betrayal at Krondor! wow, that was a nice game, and it helped me learn a lot of english vocabulary when I was 16 years old  :mrgreen:

Speaking of my very first epic OST souvenir: the Bard's Tale.

I was something like 10-11, playing on the PC of my dad (CGA 4 colors graphics) with a English dictionnary on the laps!  :P

I agree on HOI 2, very good soundtrack. But I think soundtrack of Age of Conan would fit best, though I never played the game. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Kn99vRCbww&playnext=1&list=PL0714388D0401D9ED

I like MW2 OST, Archam Bridge is epic track.

It's beautiful.
