Hi guys: As you can see, with FH 0.67 an original soundtrack for FH has been released. 1st of all, I want to say that I'm happy, because I've been posting about the need to have an original FH soundtrack. And now we've it. So, congratulations. I'm sure Maik Bredlow, the composer of FH new themes has wasted tons & tons of hours and effort composing and arranging his music. Good work guy, we're proud of you, doesn't matter really if we think your work could be better or not. You've done a hard work, and we're proud of you. In the other hand, I'm sad, terribly sad.... Sad because this is the 1st time FH devs have disappointed me... Many months ago I began to post about the need of have a original soundtrack for FH. I don't want to do a very long post, so I'll summarize... one of FH devs said me 'well, we're not thinking about to take a FH music composer, but if you want you can give us an example of your work and we heard it". Ok, months passed, and I began to work in some ideas. And after a lot of work, I released a pre-version of my own FH theme the final days of January. As many of you know, It was called "Forgotten Fope Theme". I know, it isn't very original, but the name is not most important thing... :D The FH community post a lot about the song, and a week later, I released "FH Theme" v1.2, with some improvements & changes. Here is the link of the thread where I released the song: http://forums.filefront.com/showthread.php?t=176785 Or if you prefer to listen by yourself: Forgotten Hope Theme v1.2 Installer (to heard the song during map loading screen) And here you can get the MP3 version: Forgotten Hope Theme v1.2 MP3 file A FH dev team member contacted me. He liked the song, and he wanted I worked with him in other song for FH. We began to work in a song, cooperatively. I asked him about the posibility of compose a full FH soundtrack. After some time, he said me that other FH member said him that other composer were composing music for FH too. He said me that will be a contest to decide about FH music. 'Ok, no problem', I said. 'You have an example of my work'. After this all was silence. I asked about it to others FH members, but nothing new was said '..I love Elk hunt, but may be in the future..' or 'will be a contest...' Ok, I waited. And today I read in the FH website that a soundtrack has been added to FH. I didn't know nothing about that soundtrack, and nothing about the contest. No FH dev talk to me about it. One of you said me in the FH theme thread that FH theme wasn't a real battle theme, he said that it sound as a 'honor theme' more than a 'battle theme'. So, here I was, composing a new song, effort and hours & hours of work again... It was a more powerful song, a song that fits better for loading screen, because is a 'battle fanfare'. But there were a soundtrack for FH and nobody said me anything. I've been working hours & hours in a new theme to give FH devs a new vision of what can I do. But it didn't matter, because, there were a FH soundtrack already.. Please, read it clear: FH team never said I'll do the FH soundtrack. Some of them said me that they like my work, but the official answer was 'Wait for the contest. We'll decide.' I'm not gonna talk about new FH songs quality. I let FH community give comments about it, but I prefer to don't say nothing about it. It's better, because some of you could think that my opinion about it could be altered because I'm angry because my song is not the FH official song. That's far from reality. I'm gonna repeat it: I'm not angry, only sad and disappointed. And I'm happy to know that FH has its own soundtrack. It need it, and I'm happy for this. And again, I respect Maik Bredlow work. And I hope you respect his work too. Give comments about it, say what do you like, or what could be better if you think something could be. As me, I'm sure he want to know what you think about his work. EDITED: I had a problem with english past form, excuse me :lol:
I havent got a chance to hear the new FH music, but it would have a hard time to be as good as yours! I still have your friggin awesome Forgotten Hope Theme on my desktop! :D
I apreciate the hard work of these boys and yours, Rantam, but I still prefer our old music
The old fh music is better (given the composers being professionals) but I turned off the music anyway, it gets quite annyoing to hear those tunes over and over again.
Wanna go Double Dutch?

"I don't like the new songs. But OF COURSE, I respect the composer effort." I respect the effort but i prefer the old music sounded much more kinky to me :naughty:

Hey guy, there's a link in the website's main page to download new FH songs ;) You were so excited with 0.67 release to see it, I know :lol:
Does anyone know if it's possible to randomize the songs so that a different one plays each time you load it? That way the loading music wouldn't get as boring and more than one composer could be featured.
