1 Word, SuXoRs! The previous Song while looking at the server list was Epic, really a great tune. What we have now is so utterly bland it's boring. The map load song fit with the feel of loading a map, if there is a feel to it and worked nicely, now whatever it is doesn't get you psyched or pumped up at all. Please return to what it was.
I liked Elk Hunt better for the load screen, but I keep music off while playing (is it even an option to have it on?). Does having the music play really make a difference in map load times?
both new music for menu and loading sounds like a music that belongs to a RPG game, it doesnt fit the WW2 theme that it should reflect.
the menu music is alright i guess, but they should change the menu video to go along with that music.
new loading music needs to be better. the current one kinda sounds.... depressing - not the perfect mood when you are about to enter the battlefield. they should replace that loading music with somthing like the one they got on XWW2. Now i know the game name is Forgotten Hope so the music is reflecting on that... but ide really want to hear somthing better then the .67 loading music we have right now. however i do appretiate the developer/composer's effort of this .67 music
Current music is more fitting for a funeral.....no, i don't like it.
Ok, straight to my point: This new official music is really own, as everyone knows. But.. It´s just boring. I can´t get kicks from it. It´s just running in the back, nothing else. FH is one of the most professional mods so its kinda sad that its music wont fit in atmosphere. My opinion of best mod music is: 1. Galactic Conquest 2. Old FH music 3. Battlegroup42 4. Eve of Destruction I dont know do the other mods have "own" theme but music has so important role in making atmostphere so I hope that FH gets old music back even its made by others. Galactic Conquest have so much professional touch in loading music that i hardly believe that devs made that. But if they did, they have true musical talent in their group. Battlegroup 42 has also really good loading music. Sounding more futuristic with this "techno beat" in it than the era (WWII). It gives extra kick to game. My favourites are also menu musics in old FH (from MoH or whatever) and EoD (Alone in my prison). EoD:s menu music fits so well in sixties! But anyway, it´s great that FH team want use own made music. Lets see what future releases include...
When maps take 4 minutes to load, having music on only slows down load time. So no music for me at all. Never heard the original, never heard the new one
This is my vote for new music, Al Capone, you may recognize it. :) ftp://ftp.take2.de/extras/MainTheme.mp3
Ok, after hearing the new music several times now since the release, here is my take on it. I think the menu music and the load music should switch, if anything. Here's what I liked about the old load music; it had a ominous and forboding feel to it. It had tension. It was very appropriate when you think of the meaning behind this mods' name, forgotten hope. The new music is rather shallow I think. In as many aspects as you can apply that to. I don't dig the piano solo either, it seems very out of place when you're looking at the load screen images. I think that if FH wants it's own original music over a used piece, that is the best idea. Flat out. Because FH has used "Elk Hunt" at all, it has set in a very real way set the tone for the mod. I think any new song needs to be in the same vein of "Elk Hunt" in the way that it builds up to you entering the server.
Does anybody know where I can get an MP3 version of the old menu music? I have the old loading music but I really want the old menu music.
