Re: Why is my client playing music!?!

Heh, It's really disappointing to see that people find a way to bitch about anything, it's a 6 second tune, I really like it. People have been wanting In-game music for quite awhile apperantly. We see the first sign of anything similar to it and everyone freaks out (Including to the people who've already hopped on the "z0mg teh music is ruining mah gameply" Bandwagon).

Re: Why is my client playing music!?!

It's not "bitching about anything"... other in-game sounds can be controlled, and it's really annoying to have unwanted music start playing when you open the client.

Take off your headphones and/or turn the music down for a second?

I like the tune - on my system, the audio clip chops during login and causes sound effects thereafter to crackle - and it seems a fru fru addition to the game. :P

Just in case this is not seen:

# Move the new sound system onto its own thread to fix skipping. Please /bug any snaps, crackles, pops, skips, burps or other untoward sound artifacts.

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.


While I can certainly understand this, I would point out that there are tons of other games online where the sound options are per-character and as such you have to suffer through the title screen. This isn't exactly a ringer-specific configuration.

Re: Why is my client playing music!?!

Hmm, I just updated for the first time in a few days. I rather like the music, but I can imagine it'll get old after a while. I like that we can chose to turn it off now.

Re: Why is my client playing music!?!

Sweet mother of Nemo... THANK YOU!!!!

For those who have not updated, on your log in screen you can toggle the music off. I hope it's permanent.

Re: Why is my client playing music!?!

Not only can we mute it, but it seems to me they physically turned the volume of the music down too. Yay!

Re: Why is my client playing music!?!

I love this music. I keep the Ice client in the background sometimes, just so I can listen to it.

Re: Why is my client playing music!?!

I love the music. But still, thanks for giving us the option to mute it.


I wish there was a place to download it so we could listen to it on MP3 players and such. Who made it and what is the official title?

I believe the new sounds were produced especially for Three Rings. Bang Howdy has some ambient music and they allow players to purchase MP3 versions of in exchange for gold, the Cowboy equivalent of Doubloons. While the Puzzle Pirates version of music seems somewhat shorter - perhaps we'll see them selling the MP3s in the near future!

I don't think there's enough of it to remix and sell for five doubloons.

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!?!

And with that keen bit of insight, I think this thread has long outlived its purpose.
