    Icon7 Drum and Fife Mod by Hollowfaith aka Caligula



    2010 Favorite Empire:TW Miniature Mod Award Winner! Thank you!


    I'll be uploading something here in a bit, now that I finally got Empire to run smoothly with no crashes for the last week.

    My mod does work with the 1.5 patch!

    I decided to return to modding for empire. I feel I may offer the community more than what I had already given. I noticed there are a lack of pure drum cadences for those who prefer not to listen fifes in battle. I hope that you'll return and find some use for these.


    Megapack - I hope this finished uploading because my puters browser decided it was time for me to get off the net and crashed. So any problems let me know! This mega pack includes everything I have released for the mod and I included the Hohenfriedberger Marsch in its original Stereo Format as I wrote and recorded it. The process to include music into empire requires you to convert down to Mono, which kind of kills the tracks and makes them seem flat. Enjoy!

    New Link 2 Megapack: http://www.gamefront.com/files/22100...h)+archive.rar

    8/1/2012 - New Link because Megaupload is dead. Let me know if it works for you guys. I'm also working on some new custom marches, and some new orchestra pieces for the menu and in game. They are coming soon...

    You should probably try to get them in a type of patch file instead of overwriting the whole sound file.

    Because the way hes doing it, it's much harder.

    There is a way to make a patch file that is much easier on less mod savy people, which is what I was reffering to.

    @ Remo - I'll look into it, was unaware that you could make a patch file! I'm kind of new to modding so thanks for the suggest!

    @Everyone who gave me rep! THANK YOU! Its the community who makes working on this mod enjoyable!

    Sneak Preview Movie of the Ottomans Field Music Pack. The song is almost finished, I have a few more things that need to be done to it but at least this gives you an idea. Enjoy!

    Maybe you and Mech_Donald could work together to see if you can make your marches faction specific! I loved that Hohenfriedberger march by the way

    EDIT: yay I repped you your first ring

    @sabaku_no_gaara - LOL THanks!

    @Ataegina - I will be making a mega download with all of my packs I have done to date in a few weeks. Right now my time is being sucked away on the Ottomans and Sweden Music Packs.

    @Remo - I have figured out how to make patch files. My downloads will be updated and converted to the new format for ease of installation! Thanks!

    Ya, I've tried looking through the files to see if I could find anything about faction specificity but I haven't had any luck yet. I don't think we'll make any headway with that until CA releases some mod tools.

    Well done, Hollowfaith! Hopefully in the weeks / months to come, people will discover a way to make the marches faction specific. Also, it'd be wonderful if some of the kakaphony could be turned down. Right now, it seems like you can hear every single soldier's footstep, making most large battles sound very unpleasant (a 'wall of sound' in most cases). Also, if there was some way to make the marches 'army specific' rather than 'regiment specific' that would be great. Right now, the moment two regiments start moving at different times, they play the tunes at different times, creating a very bad blend of the sound files..

    I realize that people have already flooded you with requests, so feel free to ignore this, but here are some of my suggestions:

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    For Prussia, 'Preussens Gloria' (it's a bit a-historical, but it's an awesome march):


    For the United Provinces, 'Marsch van de Heer van der Duyn':


    For France (pre-revolution), 'Jolie Tambour':


    For the United States, 'Yankee Doodle' (one of the best versions on YouTube, too bad about all the people shouting through it):

    Unfortunately both 'Preussens Gloria' and 'Marsch van de Heer van der Duyn' aren't available anywhere in a fife and drum version, so I'm not sure how useful they are.

    Lastly, would you consider uploading your files to Filefront.com? There's no need for typing those letter-number combinations, nor a waiting period to download.. Thanks in advance! I also posted this message at the official TW forums, so don't worry if you're feeling a sense of deja-vu..
