Re: Overall Audio Themes and Strategy

I see what you mean about the music in Knytt. It's very ambient but it's still musical. I like it.

Re: Overall Audio Themes and Strategy

The sample was just an idea of sounds that could be used for a space-based race. And it only has 2 sounds in it. It wasn't an example of how they would be used in a finished game. To showcase that i would have to create a lot of sounds and probably make a flash program to get the idea across fully. ...

Re: Overall Audio Themes and Strategy

The thing about how i made the audio sample is that it is almost completely randomised and each time it plays it sounds different. I also used random lfo's in the instruments although i could lengthen their cycles so they take longer to do a cycle. I'll muck about with it again and see what happens....

Re: Problem running FreeOrion 0.3.8 on Windows.

I had the problem where the configuration wasn't set up properly. i took the advice of 'pd' and installed the 0.3 RC6 version first and installed the 0.3.8 version on top of it and it worked. Hopefully this might help some other people who have similar problems. Cheers 'pd'. Monk p.s. i managed to g...

Re: Overall Audio Themes and Strategy

I've tried getting FO to work but i keep getting an error message. None of the topics in the forums seem to provide me with an answer unfortunately :-( Looping audio by using overlapping tracks would be good and make audio production easier, and also provide more flexibility for the finished product.

Re: [Music] Just a little audio sample (Electronic/Breaks)

You're right about the beats, it is a bit manic. It's a bit of a change from what i usually write but i thought it might be interesting for people to hear.

Re: Overall Audio Themes and Strategy

I know what u mean about music being the polish and giving the final game some finishing touches. I'd also thought that it's a good idea that different races should have their own musical themes. It would probably also be useful to know how the game will be using the audio before making it. For exam...

Overall Audio Themes and Strategy

Hi all, just came across this project and was interested in the musical side of things. Has there been any decision on an overall musical theme or strategy for the project? Since it's a space-based game i thought that there would be electronic and/or cinematic musical scores but i was wondering what...

Re: [Music] Conseptual Track cut :: 109 - Dawn

The link for that audio file has stopped working.

Does anyone have a copy of it which i can listen to?

Cheers.
