My new Thraddash cover/remix...
« on: March 09, 2003, 03:51:37 am »

@ http://www.angelfire.com/music5/vr/rw_thraddash_cover.zip

I don't think I've ever heard anyone give the Thraddash tune a try before, so I decided to tackle it today. Didn't turn out half bad, IMO... check it out. ¬ It's also already in .OGG format and loops nicely, so you can use it in the game (copy it to content\comm\thradd\thradd.ogg in that case) - might tide you over until we get the official remix ¬ Grin

Enjoy. ¬ Comments welcome.

.OGG format? Well, it doesn't seem to work with winamp.

Make sure you have a recent version of winamp 2.x - it definitely works with winamp 2.81 (and should probably work with 2.8, too)

Sounds great!

Only... it's a little out of character seeing as how the Thraddash were too weak and troublesome for the Ur-Quan to even allow them into a war. This music makes the Thraddash out as mythical titans that gloriously flew in to save their masters and wiped out the Kohr-Ah.

Thanks!
Well, there's nothing too epic/glorious about it - I think it nicely shows their comically violent/angry nature (comically, that is, when coupled with thier weakness).  But hey, I'm ok with your opinion - that's what I posted this for.
More people? Wink

I didn't mean to say it sounded "epic". Just too powerful.

hmmm.... I like it.  It's a bit too fast, methinks, but I like it.  I don't think it's too powerful, just... not QUITE "Thraddash sounding" to me.  On the plus side, this is the first remix that I've thought was even close to fitting the race to begin with, so it works.

Nice job VileRancour!

Server down; can't download remix

www.angelfire.com seems to be dead; I'm getting timeouts on every single request. It's still responding to pings, so I guess it's a software failure.

Does anyone have a copy on a more reliable server?

First of all... I LOVE THIS TRACK!!!  The guitar accompaniment is wicked.  I especially like the high-pitched, squeeling chords.  Its a little fast to be the Thraddash, but remixes are supposed to change the sound of the piece.  You've really done that, but also kept the hardcore rock sound of the song.  Hehe, this is a really great track!

I haven't tried it in game yet, but I figure it might be a little loud and fast to match the awesome speech of the Thraddash.  No worries, though...  I don't need to listen to them talk with the wicked guitar howling in the background.

Just kidding.  This is absolute perfection.  This track works in-game amazingly well, too.

The only thing I would suggest is dropping the levels by perhaps 0.5dB, as it is just a touch "too loud" compared to the rest of the in-game music; it somewhat drowns out the speech.

Oh, and take it out of the ZIP file; OGGs don't compress for shit, and those of us who like our music streamed can enjoy it quicker if you do.  Wink

Kudos.  Perhaps the re-mix project will take it and run with it.  After all, it's less work for them if they do.  Smiley

Thank you all!

About the loudness level - I myself haven't tried this in-game yet... this can be solved though.
And the ZIP is because I was quite sure Angelfire don't allow file types they don't recognize or want (like most other free hosting sites) - I might be wrong, though. Smiley
Chad - great! Of course you can.  This will also help Novus and anyone else who cannot download from Angelfire.

Angelfire seems to have got their act together now. I'm getting a nice and steady 3.8 kB/s from them now. Even Angelfire is preferable to the insane bureaucracy of FilePlanet. Let's see what this tune is like...

Crikey! None of this "something completely different" remix project nonsense here. Just raw Thraddash attitude and power. And nicely done, too. Sounds like guitars and drums added to the original MOD, which actually works quite well and firmly ties the remix to the original. Hmm... I think this one gets to be uqm/sc2/content/comm/thradd/thradd.ogg.

Yes - that's what I basically did; I tried to change the MOD instrumentation around a bit but it just ended up sounding lousy, so I stuck with the original accompaniment (did sneak in some changes here and there, though).  Glad you like it.

Oh, yes, and Chad - if you do put this up on the PNF, please credit it to Ringwraith.  That's still my nom-de-guerre over there. Smiley
