A Vile Force of Darkness Appears! ( music )
« on: June 17, 2009, 09:50:24 pm »

Hey everyone,

Earlier I made a topic about writing some music for Dwarf Fortress.  And I feel that I have done sieges justice...  Here's the "Siege Theme".

Soundclick: http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page_songInfo.cfm?bandID=442291&songID=7724161

Anyway, I know you can't really use this in the game, but I did it for my own enjoyment, so...  have fun!

I fixed that up for you.

I like to slip into bear caves around midnight and gently caress the carnivore inside before leaving a small cut of fresh fish and sneaking out.

I haven't tried this with DF yet, but I believe you can rename the file to the right filename and .ogg extension and it will work. FMod doesn't really care about the filename of the music it plays; it checks the format itself. I believe there's a chance this will work for .mod, .xm, .it, and .s3m formats as well. But, I suppose this is all moot because DF doesn't support context-sensitive music (yet) so it's not like it'll play on cue.

I like the theme a lot. Very creative arrangement, and I like that it's not all just heavy thudding drums.

whenever the black 'a vile force of darkness' screen appears, I pause whatever music im listening to and put on a good ensiferum track until the siege ends.

Nice. Epic. You need to get Toady to take a look at this; maybe he'd be willing to let others work on music for DF.

Something like this most certainly needs to be implemented.

Thanks for listening guys!

I contacted him a few months back and he told me that he wanted to do it all himself.

Also, if anyone has any requests for other themes, I'll try and get some done

How about a breaching the HFS theme? Or "the fall of Boatmurdered"?

Wow, that's one badass piece of music. A little too badass for goblin sieges. Now I'll have to download that orc mod to use this piece properly.

But do you have any music for times of piece? Or how about a mischievious one for those little kobold thieves that always get run off by the war dogs?

I think a Kobold theme would be really funny :D

HFS sounds awesome...  I have a good idea for that.  I need to actually BREACH the HFS though, never got around to it.
