Im still waiting for my download to finish, but i know i wont like it. Elk hunt IS forgotten hope. It sounds momentus and desperate at the same time, really puts in the feeling of the war. Can somone make an .exe to put the old music back in for those of us (read:everyone) who wants it back.

Sgt SaundersWell, Rantams music is better than the current load music, but it is STILL to somber!!! It is more like the closing credits for a movie!!! We need something ROUSING. Like the intro music for Patton! I want music to get me in the mood to blow sh*t up.[/QUOTE] As I've posted before (in this thread and in my FH theme thread) I'm currently working in a new one. More powerful. And less 'somber' my friend ;) I think it'll be enought to get you in the mood to blow ENEMY up. IMO, To blow up sh*t is a bit nasty... :lol: And of course, thx to all for your support. You can still using my FH theme v1.2 if you like it, the installer works with FH 0.67 without problem... [quote=Artie bucco] must track down and kill you the reason i asked is because i have seen the tiger and that kid in skanink (thats how you dance ska music nubs) animations.

[OFF TOPIC] They are Bill Watterson's 'Calvin & Hobbes' a great, really funny comic... I love it... Check online http://www.ucomics.com/calvinandhobbes/ You can access all comic strips of C&H there. ;)

Ok, the thread about other songs that could be used as personal FH soundtrack has been closed... It was a bit different than this thread, but, anyway it's ok. I was trying to reply last ArminAce's comment in that thread, but when I finished the thread was closed. So I'm doing it here.

ArminAce@ rantam FH has his own music now & we heared your points already several times

Ok, ArminAce. As I've posted in this thread:

  • 1st. I'm happy because FH has original music now. I've been posting about it during months.
  • 2nd. I respect the FH composer's work. He has spent hours & hours doing these songs and I thank him for it.

May be You don't like my work, or may be you think my work is not enought good for FH, or may be you think my FH Theme doesn't fit with FH style, or whatever. And I'm using 'May be' because I really don't know what you think about my work. Or what happened with that contest to decide about FH music. But it isn't very important now. Music preferences are so subjetive... And that's ok, sure. You're FH devs, and you can do whatever you want with your mod. You created it. And I respect it, no problem with that, my friend. pleased.gif But a lot of alternative content for FH is being released by FH community. For example, some realism mini-mods. So you can consider my FH theme (and the incoming songs) as a music mini-mod for FH. I think I'm not spamming about it, and I don't want to impose my music. Be sure about this. Some people don't know nothing about other available music for FH, and I'm offering mine as an alternative. As "Elk Hunt" and the MoH:Frontlines songs are being now for 0.67. I'll still posting about FH music, giving ideas or comments. Constructive only. I think I've never said nothing offensive about FH content, FH dev members or community. And I'll still posting about FH music because I love music. I'm a FH player and an active FH forum member. And I think it's important that me/our favorite mod has the best music we can make for it. Ok, going back to topic... Some of you think new music are nice. Other think the old ones were better... That's nice, but please let's try to make comments about how FH music could be improved, or how it would be... Do you prefer powerful, sad, honor music?. I think that info can be very useful for FH official/alternative composers. And for Fh devs. Let's do FH even better!! pleased.gif

What's all this crap about respect? Do we respect bad TV or bad writing or bad government? No! Having said that the music isn't terrible, but it's not good either. It suffers from the same problem that all war music suffers from. It sounds like every other goddamn peice of war music. I suppose that's not really the composers fault, I mean the subject has been done to death over the past few years. Still, the synth work is pretty sub-par, the development is meandering and there's not much direction to it. The theme's not too bad but the lack of any variation on it makes it really boring. I think it would sound alot better if the composer had some better equipment to work with (not neccesarily his fault) AND if he didn't have to be held up to the previous music which was from a full hollywood score. Oh well, it's only load music.............we can allways turn it off.

As for Rantam's stuff, well I actually like it a bit better. It's a little rougher around the edges but the equipment he used is better as the syth stuff sounds a little better. I know you didn't ask but in my opinion some of your harmonies are a little odd, not that odd harmonies neccesarily bad, but they seem to be odd without any really good reason. You establish a key and then throw in some non-chord tones and I'm not exactly sure why as they don't seem to add any dramatic or emotional dissonance. The just seem to be kinda thrown in there (to me) plus some of your chordal resolutions are abrupt. Also, you could use a bit more contrapuntal motion, the melody line starts feeling a bit staid because the inner voices and baseline are pretty basic without much in the way of countermelody. Just a suggestion. Lastly the phrasing seems awkward, like some of the musical ideas don't have room to breathe, I'd say try expanding the structure out a bit and let the phrasing flow a little easier. That might help the middle section development which also feels underdeveloped and stunted. Still, overall I like it alot the basic feel and idea is good and your execution of it is pretty solid, in spite of my nitpicks.........I'm sorry they didn't use your's instead.

i disabled the music ages ago - in times when it make difference of about 20 seconds in loading time, and never had any need to turn it on

i respect hard work, but i respect more when people know that there are things that they cannot accomplish and they dont try [it is general statement, not meant to inslult anyone, esp. author of this music, which i haven't heard yet] ps. i feel like refreshing my eng. grammar.. i admit it sucks hard :/

You're talking about serious music concepts... and that's nice. They're really interesting & useful. All that a comment have to be ;) But I've to say that may be this isn't the best thread to talk about my song. I'll answer you in the thread of my FH theme. Give me some time to think about your post, ok? Here is the link to my FH theme thread-> http://forums.filefront.com/showthread.php?t=176785 Thit isn't a thread about a FH songs contest... FH devs took other songs for the FH soundtrack, not mine. And I don't want to talk about that, because, it has not any sense. They are FH's creators and they can do whatever they want with his mod. I respect it, as I've said before. Of course, It's nice to see many of you like my song (I know it's far to be a perfect song. Very very far), and I'm glad to read about it, but this is a bit off topic in this thread. So let's use my 'old' FH theme thread to talk about my song, not this. We don't want our loved forum moderators close this thread ;) [QUOTE=sidtherat] i feel like refreshing my eng. grammar.. i admit it sucks hard :/

Your gramma is enought good to understand you, folk. At least, I've understand all you've said clearly ;)

RantamHi guys: Or if you prefer to listen by yourself: Forgotten Hope Theme v1.2 Installer (to heard the song during map loading screen)

Hello Rantam, I just thought I'd let you know that the 'Installer' cannot be downloaded. This is the message I get from Rapid Share when I tried to download it. "File /files-en/582604/ForgottenHopeTheme_v12.exe.html has been deleted. Reason: No download for a loner period. Inactivity-timeout exceeded." I download the .mp3 and listened to it though. Perhpas a little somber but very nice work! :) -------------------------------------------- I have a question(keep in mind I have not even installed the FH 0.67 patch yet): I read in another thread where some people said they didn't like the new 0.67 music as much as they liked the music from 0.66, and that they were going to back up all thier .bik files from 0.66. I was wondering if this works ok? Can you just replace all the .bik files in 0.67 with the ones from 0.66 and expect everything to work ok? Or would this mess something up? As you can probaly tell I would have no idea about to change/add the music to any old thing that I would want. I would be curious as to how you do that. Not that I plan on doing it, I'm just curious is all. Cheers, One Tin Soldier

Well, you can find FH theme here: Installer: http://www.battlefield-1942.net/index.php?action=download_details&downloadid=725 MP3 version: http://www.battlefield-1942.net/index.php?action=download_details&downloadid=726 (Thx to www.battlefield-1942.net) [QUOTE=OneTinSoldier] I have a question(keep in mind I have not even installed the FH 0.67 patch yet): I read in another thread where some people said they didn't like the new 0.67 music as much as they liked the music from 0.66, and that they were going to back up all thier .bik files from 0.66.

The music files of 0.66 (and previous versions) work perfect in 0.67 too. You can find FH music files here ->\BF1942 folder\Mods\FH\Music You've to backup Vehicle4.bik & Slaughter4.bik files. The other files have not been changed in 0.67. If you want to use my installer of FH theme v1.2 back up your Vehicle4.bik file. If you have overwritten these files installing FH 0.67, you can find the 'old' ones in FH's website, media\audio section. pleased.gif And please, don't use this thread to make questions about my FH theme. There's a thread about it, and you can find all info you want about it there. Anyway, thx for your support ;)
