Description

  There are many 'add-on' mods for enhancing visual & sound contents. AKA Polished Landscape mod, Realistic Colors mod.. etc. And also, as you know, there are some 'compilation' mods, such as 'Movie MB' mod.

  'Cinematic Compilation' is a visual & sound compilation mod as well, but it has a definite objective : cinematic. And the second goal is compatibility.

For making WB cinematic, I've compiled many of visual & sound mods, moreover, I've been working with many stuffs, and it means the mod will not be a just 'compilation'. I will add much more stuffs with my own taste.

I would like to get a in-game sample. Since this is with like 80 bows and + youtube might make the sounds sound less good. If I could get a sample to test it in MP, it would be nice. (In Mp there aren't 80 bowmen too! If there aren't so many units in the game, we can better judge the sounds individually)

Agree. But I don't think it is time to release it, as it is not completed. Though what you referred may mean a 'closed-beta'.

I've deleted them to upload better samples, and the sounds will be redone soon.

Anyway, thx for ur opinion and consideration.  :smile:
