Thread: CATW ALK Music

  1. #1

    Default CATW ALK Music

    waterflame89 a talented youtube artist I have followed since some of his earliest days on youtube released a song I very much think would be a good addition to CATW's eastern campaign music.

    He spent aprox 30+ hours on this. Please have a listen and tell what you think on this thread.

    Edit: I will add but will be making it optional. Located inside of that folder for you to use as you will.

    I will also be adding previews of songs that will be included as not optional soon. I will be discussing with a few people over the best tracks to put in and it will be aimed at the general populace of people playing the mod. And of course aimed at the specific culture and rotate around that theme (eastern) see here >> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vww7eQYhPMc

    I like this song for the East. What faction did you have in mind for it? Btw I have a few suggestions if your taking any.

    One is "Now we are free" from the movie Gladiator. I think this one would be good for a Roman/Greek faction

    another is "Woad to Ruin" from the movie King Arthur. This one may be good for any faction I think

    The last one is "Testudo" from the movie The Eagle. I think this one will go good with a Barbarian faction, possibly the Germans.

    Good suggestions

    Probably was thinking of Baktria, I'm actually planning on using some Prince Of Persia music for eastern culture..for example loading theme http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofxty5NiPXk


    Battle theme- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6QG-FiqQN-Q


    Battle theme (or a march theme) 2- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1r2RLXdvdk


    I am aiming for fun but distinctly eastern feel to it. The feeling of marching your horse archers or sparabara over a hill to see the enemy waiting on the next played to the proper music can lend an epic feel to any mod and that is what I will try to aim for.


    edit: and if you have any other suggestions keep em coming, I plan on thoroughly discarding and perusing as many tracks as I possibly can before selecting the "perfect" soundtrack of CATW and releasing with the next version. You were in fact one of the people I planned on consulting with tracks, may as well do it here instead of through PM's if you would like too!

    Deffinately leave some of the tracks from the movie "Alexander" the song "Over the Mountains" from the soundtrack is my favorite one on this game, though I think it would be better to place it on the Macedonian campaign rather then the Roman one scince the song is off a movie about Macedon. Truthfully all the songs on that movie could be a good choice for the Macedonian faction.

    Awsome choices fro mthe Prince of Persia track. Love em.

    Some more suggestions:
    "Crusades" from the movie "Season of the Witch"

    "The Battle" from the movie "Gladiator"-from 00:00-01:25 would be good for a song on the battlefield but before the fighting starts. 04:11-06:20 would be great for when battle is met. Also I think this is a good one fore the Romans.

    "Time" by Hans Zimmer

    "Sons of War" by Two Steps from Hell

    "What we need is a Hero" from the Movie Beowulf-This song might be good for a barbarian faction as a battle song.

    "lacrimosa" by Two Steps from Hell

    "To Glory" By Two Steps from Hell

    "Lux Aeterna" by Clint Mansell-This one is a great one.

    "Knights March" By Hans Zimmer

    "Leave no man Behind" by Hans Zimmer (be sure to search the Hans Zimmer version, there are two different versions and his is the best.)

    "Protectors of the Earth" by Two Steps from Hell

    "Nobody ask to be a Hero" by Hans Zimmer-This is the best song I can find for an eastern faction. I think you may find use for it somewhere.


    I know there are alot of songs here but they are all truly epic soundtracks. Thank you for letting me help you with the music. I know alot of great songs out there I just have to find them agian, anyway keep up the good work man. I hope things are going good on the developement side of the mod.

    Btw if you do an intro movie for the mod, "Time" by hans zimmer would be an excellent choice for the background music.

    Update: Idea on hold... may have to do some work arounds here, seems like there's even a hard code limit for this!


    Update2: Fixed this^...testing stage to see if it works for the entire hour (I may make it longer if an hour works) or has a cut off point. It should work but I still am testing this to make sure it will.

    Woke up today and did some more work on this. A simple solution crossed my mind to the dilemma of appealing to all tastes.

    I will piece together songs instead of selecting individual songs. This would allow for multiple "tracks" instead of simple "songs" for each category. It allows for a wider spread of music and variants appealing to everyone and adds a variety. I find it's easy to become tired of listening to the exact same songs over and over, again and again. Tracks will hopefully negate this issue.


    Also I may expand further on this and do selective tracks. E.G. Culturally orientated track/s versus interesting music I enjoyed that will be distinctive to each culture.

    Interesting Resef... I will try out your mod and I'm thrilled that it's got unique music along with it that seems to not just be straight from well known movies. The music choice seems to be things I've never heard of most of the time so I'm quite excited to hear it in game.


    Keep it up, I look forward to playing as Carthage in this mod! (Diocle will hate me for that )

    Thanks, we're trying to make this mod very unique.


    You/others may be interested in this sudden and unasked for monologue for no purpose other than to get some awareness into the world about this cool add on.

    I had another idea today which was a way to indefinitely expand arrow duration (just like you can in MTW2) in the ground after seeing this shortly thereafter I realized it isn't viable since I found further on that they disappear just like arrows, but do show themselves sticking into the ground. Plus even if javelins did indefinitely stay in the ground and I changed their model to an arrow, I would run into the issue of javelin's not having enough range. Since that is hard-coded in the EDU I believe. So, sadly, it was just an idea.

    I think this will also make an epic main menu theme.

    My headphones on the right side aren't working suddenly. So work in this regard is paused but I did make significant progress before now (almost complete).

    It will resume once I RMA them.
