    Default The Music of HBO's Game of Thrones

    Music Version: 1.0

    NB: Requires Your Own Copy of the Game of Thrones Soundtrack.

    Download attached to post.

    Installing is not so simple as just extracting the files! Read on!

    Noob Friendly Installation Instructions - IMPORTANT


    You may wish to backup:
    • Westeros\data\sounds\events.idx
    • Westeros\data\sounds\events.dat


    A Note on the Versions

    The Soundtrack is compatible, not only with the Game of Thrones submod, but also with vanilla Westeros: Total War itself. Version 2.0 of the GoT submod uses different files to that of vanilla W:TW, so be sure to choose the correct download according to what you are installing it for.

    Secondly, be sure to choose either the Season 1 download, or Season 1 & 2 download, according to which soundtrack you own.

    Having chosen the correct download......extract it to your Medieval 2: Total War "mods" directory, the typical location being shown in the screenshot (best to browse manually to ensure you get it right):

    Spoiler for Patronising Image


    Now browse to: ...\Medieval II Total War\mods\Westeros\data\sounds\music

    NOTE THAT I AM ABOUT TO SAY COPY!

    COPY your Game of Thrones Soundtrack files into this location.


    • Season 1: 29 .mp3 files
    • Season 2: 21 .mp3 files*
    • Season 3: 18 .mp3 files*
    • Season 4: 21 .mp3 files*



    *When using Season 2 with Season 1, you will have two versions of "Main Title" where only one is needed, delete Season 2's additional track leaving you with only 20 .mp3s. Same with all successive seasons.

    The Season 2 Mod installs an additional track, S02E09_The_Rains_of_Castamere, ignore it, do not rename it.


    NOTE THAT I SAID ING COPY!

    Now having copied those music files, you alas are not finished, for you see Medieval 2 cannot handle spaces in titles, and there we have "Main Title.mp3". The following is the way I determined to be the fastest (and I explored a fair few renaming methods) .

    1 - Order the soundtrack files by Track Number in Windows Explorer. If installing both Soundtracks, they may get mixed together, so best to sort them in two different folders.

    2 - Right-click Track 1: "Main Title.mp3" and select: Rename.

    3 - Type "1", press "Tab", you are now renaming Track 2, rename this to "2" and press "Tab". Now shockingly you name Track 3, "3" and then press "Tab".

    4 - REPEAT, if "Finale" is not renamed "29" you did something wrong Check the image below. If you are also installing season 2, numbering continues, with "The Throne is Mine" as Track 30 and the last track, "Three Blasts" as Track 49. If you are further installing season 3, numbering continues, skipping Main Title again, so "A Lannister Always Pays His Debts" is Track 50 and finally "For the Realm" is Track 67. Likewise, for Season 4 numbering continues, skipping Main Title again, so "The Rains of Castamere" is Track 68 and finally "The Children" is Track 88.

    Spoiler for Just in case you are unsure


    5 - Celebrating completing this difficult feat and procede to hunt down Inarus and slap him for patronising you soooo much that you quickly renamed the files and now have a new soundtrack to enjoy.

    6 - Having not physically harmed anyone because that would be cruel, proceed to launch the mod .

    since this is a sub mod and not part of the official WTW final product it will not cause any troubles.
    note: apparently HBO is really strict when it comes to their content

    I was hopping some worthy fellow would do this, I have found the character portraits in the Alpha release to be lacking in flavour and colour.
    I look forward to your first release with great anticipation

    Hmmm, well I was already unsure of using the Title Credits in the backdrop, game-wise it means enabling videos (and so English/French/etc. intro and death videos), it also is a low, uncrisp quality video (Rad didn't like anything better than Standard Definition). Aside from that it stretches over 30 seconds, which I hear is the reasonable limit of using video. Oh and it certainly doesn't mix with the M2 music . Either way it will not feature in the first release (hoping HBO lets it get that far) and I am now doubtful it ever will.

    Would be nice if I was able to just argue my point to them, not live in fear of them putting their foot down!

    Anyone have any ideas for what image would make the perfect backdrop to the main menu?

    Why not contact them? I would imagine they'll act in a more considerate manner if someone asks permission rather than simply waits for them to find out and then hopes they won't shut it down. If you just explain what you want to do, the worst they can do is say no, which realistically would just save you the effort of making the mod and having them No No it at a later date anyway.

    Looks good btw, hope it all comes together!

    Looks very nice, I am interested in getting to play this mod (got hooked into this world after watching the series!) and having images from the TV show would be great!

    Is there really much problem with HBO for it though? I know it's copyrighted but the Third Age mod uses plenty of movie content.

    I've already tried contacting HBO (well, the studio that produced the soundtrack) to ask for permission to use the music. They just didn't respond, even after several more pestering e-mails.

    Check out our previews here; now including Houses Lannister & Tyrell!
    Beatsdaily. Does exactly what it says on the tin.

    Hate to break it to you, but everything is copyrighted. The pictures, the video, the music, everything. Using your load screens, using pics of the actors, all of that breaks the copyright laws and allows HBO - more importantly AOL Time Warner to sue you if they please. There is a statute of limitations on it, but it keeps retolling with every update to the game and goes for atleast 3 years depending on the state.

    That said, just because they can sue you, will they? Also what can they get from you? What are the damages? That you freely advertised their show? The best they probably can ever get out of you is a order to cease. MAYBE some sort of punative damages like you see with MP3 downloading, but honestly that all sounds very far fretched.

    this is a modding site...

    why not just relax and stay on topic, which would be inarus' submod

    you can discuss law elsewhere..noone in this forum has ever gained a penny out of this and in any case there are many cases in which, whenever someone had a problem with something, the modders edited their work etc..so no harm done..please just stay on topic..no need to play self-proclaimed net-lawyers

    btw...GREAT LETTER FONT!

    Thank you noobas. The issue of Copyright is clearly in a grey area and let's not get too worked up about me downloading images from the internet solely to make people happy and promote awesome TV.

    (If I do suffer a long period of inactivity on TWC, I may have been secretly extradited to America, if this happens please do console my family with the news that this mod was appreciated* )

    Either way I have decided not to include the Title Credits as the menu background, it just doesn't work well enough, the cons outweigh the pros, etc.

    Therefore I need a new Title Screen, my original idea was the Iron Throne however when I loaded up W:TW I was presented with a hideous image which looked as though the Throne had succumbed to the long hours of sustaining Robert Baratheon's immense weight (My aspect ratio had stretched it out hideously, in other words )

    If anyone is knowledgeable in the matters of such stretching of images and if it's just a downside of my laptop having a wide screen and other people probably won't suffer the same then please say.

    Otherwise, I would ask for some input: what do you want as the backdrop to the menu? What sums up the raging war in Westeros?

    ___________
    * Here's hoping I get time to finish this (which I certainly should, only event messages and ancillaries remain, oh and a main menu but that discussed above )

    well to be honest.. i don't think your idea will work

    -there's only one season, many portraits are gonna be missing,
    -many of those that are already presented, are way different than their actual book-descriptions
    -event pics are gonna be a real bitz, lets say everything about battles and sieges..general dies, enemy general dies, settlement taken, building lost etc etc..
    the tv show isn't displaying anything that relative (maybe they'll do blackwater, but who knows in what scale..)

    and you also "have" to have some variaty regarding the different cultures, for whatever kind of event pic..how are you ever gonna find anything dorne related ? or are you gonna use pics from other films ?

    you're just gonna end up with a miss matched motley bunch of pics, i'm afraid...
    your concept is beautiful but also seriously flawed..
    the TA had 3 films of epic proportions with another 2 coming up and not as much detailed characters appearances (tolkien's work on the war of the ring, was mostly about the middle-earth races and 10-15 characters, while martin's is about around 100 fully fleshed out, main, secondary and even tertiary characters..tough deal )

    maybe you should reform your concept and concentrate on just

    -loading and menu screens
    (you already have some great stuff, as i can see from the previews, maybe you should also include the variou spromotional pics with the various characters on the iron throne or the various banners and why not some fan art too..like certain show-pics , processed with photoshop etc...i'll take a look in my drive and see what i have to send you)
