Post news RSS The Beginning of the Empire at War Music Mod

Hello! This mod was designed for the sole reason of changing the music for Star Wars: Empire at War and nothing else. I removed some tracks from the MUSICEVENTS XML file because things like VADERS_PRESENCE for the Rebels and REBELLION_ADVANTAGE for the Imperials doesn't really, well, match.

What really inspired this mod is when I learned how to do it. It all started when I installed another music mod called Empire at War: John WIlliams Edition. I got a music editor and started switching some files from it and kept the ones I liked too much to get rid of. Then one day, when I was trying to learn to mod by first looking at the XML files and figuring out what the do. Then, I found it. Musicevents. I opened the file with Windows Notepad, and I started looking. I found out the names of the music files that were played, and since I already knew how to change them, I started doing just that. I used a music editor called Audacity to start making some music by cutting and pasting with some of my already existing music files. When I was happy with the files I had made, I realized I could edit the XML files themselves and those changes would be manifested into the game. So, that's when I removed two music files from each side: REBELLION_ADVANTAGE and IMPERIAL_ATTACK_1 from the Empire, and VADERS_PRESENCE and EMPIRE_AT_WAR from the Rebels. Then, I made myself a ModDB account and posted this mod for everyone else.


I would just like to thank RageMaker on ModDB, the creator of Empire at War: John Williams edition, for inspiring me to make this mod. I really couldn't have done it without you. I would also like to thank God for creating me and sending His only begotten Son to die for my sins. I would also like to thank John Williams and all the others who have composed Star Wars music for providing such amazing music. I would also like to thank anyone who installs this Mod and/or provides feedback. Constructive criticism is really appreciated. And last but not least, I want to thank George Lucas for creating Star Wars to begin with. Whether it's the OT or the Prequels, all of the Saga was made incredible through your creative ingenuity. And just think, when you first wanted to release it, the guy you talked to was more in favor of a WWII romance! And I also thank everyone else who made Star Wars, whether you were a puppeteer in The Empire Strikes Back or in charge of Darth Vader, it couldn't have been done without you. May the Force be with you all, and have a great day!
