  • I have just decided to turn what little I call an attention span to gathering some music from the Napoleonic era for this great mod.

    I put this together rather quickly, and didn't stop to smell the roses, so here is the link for the download.

    The intro is 01 02 Divertimento In B Flat Major K 229 No 2, the second is a very small midi converted into an mp3 called "Bold Nelson's Praise" which can be listened to by visiting this link: www.contemplator.com/england/nelson.html

    [Installing the Edit]
    Make a back up of your music directory in SOWgb, then extract the .mp3's.


    Now for those who wish to take a peek at where I got one of the music files, visit the link below.

    hmn..only thing that puts me off it is that its obviously electronic i.e there no actual instruments being played. hows about something like this?

    or this for the prussians?

    these are off youtube but i have these in my collection and a lot more like them that are from the period.
    just my tuppence worth! cheers

    Tuppence accepted. :)

    When I came across the midi music it seemed to draw me back to more simpler times. Obviously it's me but for some reason it just struck me to fit in.

    Mind you the intro had to be lavish since you don't want to hear the midi music playing at the very start, this is why I decided to have it playing only in the battle report.

    Also another thing about that midi tune reminds me of that movie "Amadeus" when he is playing that tin sounding piano (I have no idea what the name of that instrument is, so forgive me).

    If you wish to compile your music for the mod then by all means give it a go.

    It's all about the experience, and for me it's that midi sound in the battle report that just fits...

  • Mike,

    It's a harpsicord, a sort of precurser to the piano.

    All that you need to do is find the music that you think would draw the person into the time period of the mod, and once you do have the music selected, just rename the .mp3's to what you like them to replace in the game.

    SOWGB_Intro.mp3 of course is the intro music when you start the game.
    SOWGB_End.mp3 is the Battle Report music
    SOWGB_Multiplayer.mp3 is the Multiplayer menu music.

    Okay two ways to get that last pickle out of the pickle jar...

    Once you choose the mp3's you want to use in the game all that is then needed to do is rename which .mp3 you have chosen to the above names, then copy them over to your <drive letter>:\NorbSoftDev\Scourge of War - Gettysburg\Base\Music

    NOTE: Make a backup of the music directory first before overwriting the music files.

    OR...

    Go to the mods directory in Scourge of War - Gettysburg. Create a directory called whatever suits you to name it, for me I would name it New Music. Once I do that go into that directory, and create one more directory called "Music". Once you do that you just copy those music files you wish to use into that directory you just made.

    Now you just go into the game, select the mod New Music, and activate it (yellow bar to the left of the mod should be showing). If your music is not playing right away, just restart the game.

    I just tested this before I wrote it, and it works fine.

    There are also script commands to play mp3 files.

    Would that be by selecting the Tilde, and entering playmp3:hairymole.mp3? :huh:
