Napoleonic Music

This sequel to the award-winning Crown of Glory takes Napoleonic Grand Strategy to a whole new level. This represents a complete overhaul of the original release, including countless improvements and innovations ranging from detailed Naval combat and brigade-level Land combat to an improved AI, unit upgrades, a more detailed Strategic Map and a new simplified Economy option. More historical AND more fun than the original!

There's a version of La Marseillaise there that's better than the midi one I hear in the youtube video....plus other goodies.

That version of the Marseillaise makes me want to run down and grab my great coat and join the French army of 1795!  When they were still fighting for an idea...and not a man.

Would be nice if WCS replaced the midi La Marseillaise for the patch...don't believe there's any copyright issue if someone posted all these files online for free.

Just because someone posts it does not make it legal for someone else to sell it, which is what Matrix would be doing if they included it in the patch. 
 
Someone at Matrix would have to verify the copyright status of each of the pieces.  They could be public domain, but I doubt it.  Check into the copyright laws.  They're not what everyone thinks they are.

ptan54, you can do it yourself according to ericbabe...

In the Music directory you'll find many .wma files. You can overwrite these files with custom music also in .wma format. You should be able to find little utilities on the web to convert audio files to .wma format; we use a little free program called something like "Free Mp3 Wma Converter." Adding new files won't work; you have to overwrite existing files.

Rule Brittania is, I believe, one of the battle#.wma songs.
So no copyright problems for the WCS crew [;)]!

Yeah, but if they put them in the patch, they'd have to have the rights to do so. If you do it, then any liability falls to you. But, if someone downloads them at puts them in their folder to play during the game, who's going to know?
