Why is my client playing music!?!

So now when I start up my Ice client it starts playing some sort of Irish Pirate music... I'm not against Irish Pirate music... but I really HATE stuff that plays music when I don't want it too...

This has been noted a few times in the release notes thread now, and we're hopeful that the devs are listening and will add Music (and sound?) to the global preferences, or something.

Re: Why is my client playing music!?!

Dear Three Rings,

I turned off the music in game but is there really a need to have my client play the silly little tune when I open it? If Three Rings insist on this then at the very least meet me half way and give me Pork and Beans when I click Duty navigation!

Thanks
Gunnermooch.

Maybe that was the point of introducing client music.

Re: Why is my client playing music!?!

Irish???

Hmm Not my first choice .. lol ..
Started client .. Inevitable update.. Wento outside to pick some salda for lunch.. slowly became aware of this awesome music playing.. Lo and Behold .. It was IN my home!!!

I was sad to open the client.

Now ..Sticks Pin in bubble...

Already, many of us are in loggin H.E.L.L disconning/lagging out/booted from server..Whole client just poofs suddenly off putor screen.. not just closed.. Names appearing but they lagged off hours ago.. Happened on Hunter.. captain and his wife.. He hung on a bit longer.and his name poofed when he lagged out. they can't even play hardly anymore.
Taking forever to enter anything.. etc etc..

I am wildly hoping that the music ( which I love on ICE but fear will have to turn off on regular oceans) is not just another reason that creates more problems.

Crossing my fingers that something like.. place markers have been put in already .. and when the real thing gets installed .. .. some better semblance of balance will...

ahh geez..
Wishful Thinking

Please don't make my game unplayable.. me whimpers into the sunset!!!

Re: Why is my client playing music!?!

I would like to know, if music is implemented to the main oceans, can we replace it with our own choices of music? (Without touching any other game files, of course)

Sorry, much as I like the music, I think it has to go. After logging on I had glitchy sound effects and it's just - sorry, just annoyin'.

Re: Why is my client playing music!?!

Since someone started a music thread, I am moving my post from the update thread:

I'm sorry, I don't have time to read 15 pages of posts, but what's up with the freaking music? I went to options, turned off music, yet it still plays. Please.... MAKE IT STOP!!!!

Or at least put up a warning, it made me jump in my chair, because my volume was up and that's not very good for someone with a spinal injury. Oh, and it does not stop once in game. <sigh>

Re: Why is my client playing music!?!

Personally, I like the music and the atmosphere it creates. I also like how it fades out once I am fully logged on, no matter what point it is at. I do, however, think it would be good to only play through once, and it would be good if it were possible to only play on one client if multiple ones are opened. I also would like to see separate volume sliders - I am always trying to find the balance between the cannon / net effects in Atlantis and the carpentry feedback sounds.

Re: Why is my client playing music!?!

Sorry - the client start up music is kind of annoying.

If it has to stay - I want the option to be able to disable it specifically.

I don't mind a little "3 second ditty" when I launch a puzzle but this is a bit... meh in my opinion.

Re: Why is my client playing music!?!

Re: Why is my client playing music!?!

OK, I think the music has potential, however I have a suggestion. Along with an option to turn it on/off, how about an option to possibly music from someone's music library, like iTunes? I know I personally would like to have piratey music play when I play, but maybe someone else likes this Pork and Beans and somebody else Billy Joel (Downeaster Alexa). I think being able to modify the quicj chat keys was great, and using that same kind of interface to just show the game where the music is would be cool.

Re: Why is my client playing music!?!

Not having checked yet, it's just at log-in? Like over once the island pops up?

In other words plays like once per play session? Not sure I'm seeing a problem.

Re: Why is my client playing music!?!

Yes, it starts playing when you open the client and begins to fade out once you're looking at the Notice Board. The main problem I have with it is recently it's been taking me around 10 minutes to go through that process with all heavy load notices, and there is no option to turn it off.

Re: Why is my client playing music!?!

I tend to watch the TV on my PC - now running Ubuntu - and the volume is completely drowned by any other sound sources. Major problem.

Re: Why is my client playing music!?!

If I remove the sound files that ok yeah?

/e looks at them, sooooooo tempting.

If it's fine by three rings I can post where you can remove them from. I don't see it any different then when people were tarting about the belly shirts in game and they replace the image of them with rag tops.

If you have the Music checkbox disabled, you will have music from client opening until your pirate is selected at least. This is because Music (and Sound) are not global preferences (like "Remember account name?") but per-pirate.

For those of us that don't use YPP sounds, yes, this is a big annoyance. I'm somewhat hopeful however, the next release will add Music (and Sound, PLEASE!) as global preference options too.

Re: Why is my client playing music!?!

Please don't make me get Vista. The music needs a way to be turned off that doesn't involve turning my computer into junk.

Perhaps the music option should affect the login tune as well as the building-entering ditties.

Re: Why is my client playing music!?!

The different music they play every time you go into a specific building is really funny at first, then it becomes EXTREMELY repetitive.

Re: Why is my client playing music!?!

It sounds good in theory--creating atmosphere and all--but for me isn't workable in practice. Like many others, I'm sure, I have headphones on playing music or talk radio when I'm online and any music from any site is extremely jarring. I would add my plea to those who are asking for a way to turn this off--globally.

Repeating myself again most likely just so it's clear what the problem is to the developers. You can turn off the Music, just like sound. The problem is that Music and Sound preferences are per-Pirate and not global options so even when disabled, you'll get the background music (and certain sounds) in the pirate login screen and the select-your-pirate screen.
