This mod replaces the ingame music with (mostly) 17th century music.

There are two versions of the mod, Steam and non-Steam, and they aren't interchangeable (so don't try).

Unzip the mod to a safe place and read the attached installation instructions.


Pike and Shot Campaigns:


Regular (non-Steam) version:


https://app.box.com/s/wj6bv9fyyd61z0grlfiam3ovjynnaj2b

or

https://www.dropbox.com/s/e5ai3bv354zcfhx/Pike%20and%20Shot%20Campaigns%20Period%20Music%201.3.zip?dl=0






Steam version:


https://app.box.com/s/t7er8kmlnjnujfkq1eu7wpogyligl2t5

or

https://www.dropbox.com/s/c4zp78szgzvgp9q/Pike%20and%20Shot%20Campaigns%20Period%20Music%201.3%20%28steam%20version%29.zip?dl=0




This mod should be compatible with other sound mods, but to hear it you'll need to install it after the other mod.

I sometimes run out of bandwidth towards the end of the month, so I've added a second set of download links for Pike and Shot Campaigns.



For anyone who still has the older version of the game (when it was just Pike and Shot before it became Pike and Shot Campaigns), here are the links:

The regular version:

The Steam version:

https://app.box.com/s/tw34wlh430og09f5yulx1b71cggmsjrb


(The mod for the older version of the game is also an older version of the mod).

I've just run a test on the sound mod and the Steam version isn't playing the victory/defeat music.

I'm looking into the problem, but for now I would suggest using the non-Steam version.

Just a guess, but the problem may be that there is something stuck up in the Steam cloud that makes the game revert to the old pre-mod Music text file (that contains the command lines).

A folder and a textfile got left out of the mod. I didn't notice because they were present in my non-steam installation so everything seemed to be working properly. An object lesson in how bugs find their way into games.

The regular and Steam versions of the mod have now been updated to version 1.1. and can be downloaded by clicking on the links in the first post.

Thanks, nice choice of music to help get into the era.

I've made another version of the Period Music mod that works with Pike and Shot Campaigns. It is listed in the first post.

The path for Pike and Shot Campaigns is ever so slightly different from the path for Pike and Shot, and it uses a separate configuration file that effects a lot more than the music. I'm not sure what would happen if you use the Pike and Shot configuration file on Pike and Shot Campaigns, but I would avoid mixing the two programs just in case. Hence the need for a Campaigns version of the mod.

Due to an oversight the installation instructions were left out of the last round of updates.

That has now been rectified.

I've uploaded the mod to Dropbox and updated the first post in this thread with the new links.

(I frequently run out of bandwidth towards the end of the month, so now you can use the other link instead of waiting until the next month).

I've just expanded the mod so that it plays early Renaissance music in scenarios from the Italian Wars section.

And at some point in the near future I'll add music tailored to the late 16th century at the very least (the period the game covers in the Tercio to Salvo scenarios).

I haven't figured out how to extend this to user-made scenarios, and based on Richard and Pip's comments it probably isn't possible short of changing all of the music in the game.

That's not optimal, but it's not off the table.

I've updated the links in the first post of this thread to point at the new files.

I've updated the Dropbox links so that they point to version 1.3 of the mod.

(The reason I use two accounts is that I frequently run out of bandwidth because of people downloading my mods for other games).

I've decided to bite the bullet and update the Pike and Shot version of the music mod to the same standard as the Pike and Shot Campaigns version of the music mod.

So the links should now take you to the latest version of whichever mod you are using.

The Pike and Shot version of the music mod now reflects the updates made to the Pike and Shot Campaigns version of the music mod late last year.

The links in the first post will take you to the latest versions.
