Here is another Duel Music Mod by Shawn Za'an II. This replaces the current duel music with 2 sounds from the Halo Original Soundtrack. At first, I had to make sure it was from Halo. When I first heard it, I though it sounded kind of like an Irish dance. I never played Halo before, so I wouldn't be too familiar with it. It takes “Truth And Reconciliation Suite” and “Rock Anthem For Saving The World”, and combines them into 1 file. Both pieces were composed by Martin O'Donnell/Michael Salvatori. This file has excellent quality, and lasts for 3 minutes, 52 seconds. I can’t wait to see the Halo 2 duel music mods that will come out. This author has a sense of humor, in his readme:

Its always nice to know someone has a sense of humor. :) If you want, you can listen to this music without needing to go into a duel by typing in the console:

Byte me.) ==================================================================== Installation: Just drop the .pk3 into your base folder. Make sure it's the only duel music mod you've got in there, or you'll base will explode (that's what they tell me, anyhow). I know that the server needs to have the .pk3 if it's a pure server, dunno about others though. (I try to stay out of all this technical stuff.) So just stick this in base and give it a try. (And if you just can't seem to hear it on the server, but are dying to hear some butt-kickin' Halo music, just go to the main screen of JA and type "/music music/mp/duel" in console.) Uninstall: Take a wild guess. (That means, take the .pk3 out of base. Duh.) ==================================================================== Contact Info: E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org MSN Messenger: email@example.com Phone Number: 1-1000-555-59-2531-1934071-EAT-IT Clan: The Jedi Order - http://www.jedi-order.net/ ==================================================================== = Personal Reflection ("Everything looks backwards in the mirror...") = A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, a young guy named Philbo Za'an uploaded his new duel music "Scherzo For Lightsabre And Orchestra" to the great guys at PCGameMods. It got posted up immediately, and was removed shortly thereafter. This young Philbo said, "Well, crap on that, then." And he grabbed his duel music, tossed it into an e-mail, aimed, and fired it at the nearest JK3Files place. A few millenia later, it finally got posted up. And Philbo was very, very happy with the review. So happy, in fact, that he finally decided to go ahead and send two more of his finished duel musicfulnesses - "Anthem For Saving The Galaxy" from the Halo soundtrack and "Duel With The Steel Beast", another from the IJLC soundtrack. He also finally got around to sending his Jurancor Park music to Sith-J-Cull, who was so pleased, he asked little Philbo to start on another music project for him. Philbo more than happily accepted the challenge, and was ready to get started. Until all hell broke loose... (BUH-Buh-buhhh...) So I was all ready to get started on some of this stuff, when I decided I was feeling a tad left out of the school play. We're doing "Noises Off" this semester, and being pretty big on acting and such, I couldn't help but audition. This was the first time I didn't get a part in a play (there's only 9 roles), which was fine by me, because the drama teacher asked me to do the sound for the play instead. ("Sounds fun", I said. Pun intended.) Well, being the bored type of person that I was, and being that I didn't actually HAVE to be at any rehearsals until November 6th, I figured I go ahead and help out with anything I could anyhow. So I came to the rehearsals anyway, helping to build the set (which rocks, by the way), helping the Stage Manager and Assistant Stage Manager keep things under control (two very nice young ladies, by the way), and helping the actors out with... well... acting. Anyhow, apparently, I was spending a bit too much time there. Because our drama teacher, the Director for all the plays, decided that seeing as how I was sort of a "legend" in the plays here at school, I should help out with the play a bit more. Alot more, actually. So she made up a new position for me: Assistant Director. I jumped at the opportunity, seeing as how all these people were my friends, and I considered it a complement to have a new job created just for me. So now I get to help with additional blocking, improved acting, and teaching the kids how to improvise their way out of dire situations (I'm a God at that, I tell you). All this was from 3:00 PM to 6:30 PM or so every day after school. Which really wasn't too bad. And yeah, then things got worse. Because THEN, the fine arts department commissioned me to be the escort for our homecoming candidate. It was only a week-long thing, but every night that week, the homecoming court went out for activities starting at 6:00 PM, and we finished up every night at around 11:00. So my days went like this: Wake up at 6 AM, go to school from 8 to 2:45 PM, play rehearsal from 3 to 6, homecoming stuff from 6 to at least 11, home by 11:30 or so, shower and homework to 2 AM the next day, and four hours of sleep before it all repeated. Having the ACT that Saturday didn't help much either. It was like hell week on 'roids or somethin'. Anyhow, that's all over now. The play's goin' great, etc. etc. good time happy fun yeah. Oh. About the music. If Michael Giachinno is the John Williams of game music, then Marty O'Donnell is the Danny Elfman. His music just kicks so much boo-tay. The soundtrack from Halo 2, from what I've heard of it so far, is gonna kick even more. So, seeing as how Halo 2 is already comin' out, this ought to be a nice happy music bit for the kids. Unlike my last duel music mod, this one doesn't loop quite as perfectly. But it should be fine, because really, it's alot longer than the last one, and in that aspect, it's meant to be good for both short happy duels and long awexome ones. And if you have a REALLY long awexome one, you get to hear the rockin' guitar solo. Woohoo for that. So enjoy the music kids. My thanks go out to Chaos Varsil for gettin' my first music into the community, Sith-J-Cull for being a rockin' awesome mapper and givin' me some jobs to do, and Amos Magee over at JK3Files for giving "Scherzo For Lightsabre And Orchestra" such a big happy good fun review. ==================================================================== = Who In The Bloody Hell Am I? = Just a little about myself here, or somethin'. As I suggested up there at the top, most everyone around here calls me Shawn Za'an II or Philbo Za'an, and I've got numerous other names from role-playing and such. Of course, my real name's Clinton Kubat, resident of the great nation of the U. S. of A. Being an aspiring composer myself, I do a lot of studying of stuff from movies, games, and the like. And obviously, I've gotten into music editing as well. So a lot of my studies are gonna wind up turning into some nice duel music for the kids. Yaay for them. I think I'm gettin' the hang of this editing thing (you can decide for yourself, I guess), and hopefully I could get a job doing some stuff like this and get a little start on my composing career. (It's either composing or some sort of psychology job, anyhow.) So uhh... I guess once I finish up college (I'm a senior in high school right now), I'll be jumping on the typical psychologist/music-composer/music-editor/actor/voice-actor/writer/garbage-man bandwagon, and if I'm lucky, you guys may get to see some of my work in action. (Better yet, if anyone in the community has some true mental health problems, I could be your psychiatrist.) Wish me luck in the future everybody, and keep an eye open for more of my work. ==================================================================== = Also See... = Map Music: Chaos Tomb (for Chaos Varsil's duel map of the same name) [http://www.pcgamemods.com/6177/] Duel Music: Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade - Scherzo For Lightsabre And Orchestra [http://jediknight2.filefront.com/file/PZ_Scherzo_For_Lightsabre_And_Orchestra;31814] Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade - Duel With The Steel Beast [keep an eye open for it] ==================================================================== = Coming Soon = Duel Music: More Indiana Jones duel music.
