    Default Sound Add-On

    Hello Samurai Warlords,

    I've wanted to release this for a long time and finally here it is:
    The Sound Add-On.
    This installs all original sounds and voice files of Shogun:Total War
    to the Samurai Warlords mod, betas 5 & 8.
    I've made two versions. One for each version of the mod.
    Currently beta_8 is in use for Single players and beta_5 for Multiplayers.
    Accordingly beta_5 users need the beta_5 add-on and beta_8 users get the beta_8 add-on.

    Sound Add-On for beta 5: Download ~80 MB
    Sound Add-On for beta 8:Download ~110 MB

    I didn't have time to write a readme. The installation process should be easy.
    Point the installer at the main folder of the Medieval install that contains the mod installation.
    In addition to the preview version I've unofficially released a couple of weeks ago, there're some changes included in this new version.
    So, those that have the previous unofficial version should get the new one in any case.
    The main difference between the beta_5 and beta_8 add-on's is the size of the download.
    The beta_5 download misses the campaign map sounds, which aren't needed for Multiplayer.

    Here's an attempt at a list of included sounds:
    (All voice files are in japanese)
    - Battle Events
    - Troop orders
    - Battlefield Music
    - Campaign map music (beta 8 only)
    - frontend (menu and MP lobby) music
    - Menu sounds
    - arrow sound
    - heavy rain sound

    For clarification...is this new Sound Add-on giving the same as the original Sound\Sound folder that I already have installed in the Sam Wars main dir?? From when we first started playing/testing the Mod?
    That was the one that caused some players a lot of 'hassle' trying to manually install the files into the right place.

    Good work R'as.

    Hi Jochi,

    no this is totally different to the sound swapper that Tosa made.
    This add-on is for those who don't have STW, don't have it installled, don't want to use the swapper, have failed to use the swapper, etc.
    It contains all the sound files needed. (that's why the download is so big)There's no need for a STW install.
    Install routine should not cause any problems as long as pointed at the main folder of Medieval.

    Hi R'as

    Thanks for the update.

    I wont need to download and install this one because I already have the STW Sounds file in my MTW/VI install of Samurai Warlords Beta5 and Beta8. (two separate installs)

    One advantage of doing it the way that I have done it is that you only need to swap the sound files once and leave them as STW. A straight forward log in to the game from the Desktop shortcut.

    I appreciate not all players have the HDD space to use separate installs.

    Well, NTW seemed to pull it off fairly well.

    The NTW sound add-on is 67 MB large. It contains 29 sound files.
    It needs to be installed manually.
    Install Instructions for NTW sound add-on:
    1.The first thing you need to do is convert all the .mp3 to .wav files,i have added a freeware program that you can use:dBpowerAMP Music Converter,but feel free to use any other program.

    2.Then you will place them in the music file which is located here by default C:\Program Files\Total War\Medieval - Total War\Sounds.If your NTW install is located somewhere else put the files in the appropriate \Sounds file instead!


    The Samurai Warlords Add-on is 110 MB large and contains about 160 sound files. It installs automatically.
    That's the difference.
    You've to take into account that a lot of people can't handle .rar or .zip archives, let alone know how to use a third party program to convert mp3 to wav.
    It's just asked too much.

    *sighs*, *gives in*, *walks away but doesn't forget to download*
    But in my last defense of the case: The total play time for the music only is 1 Hour and 8 Minutes in NTW over 14 items. How much is it for this?

    Raz,
    I'm not saying your idea is bad. I just think it's too complicated for most users.
    The playtime of all files of the add-on is only a good 30 mins.
    NTW has some music files that are really long.

    Didn't the mongol invasion decompress the audio from mp3 into wav anyway? I seem to remember some kind of program that does that during the installation of MI? I'm not criticising I just think it may be worth looking into. IMHO the STW sound files are essential for this mod. You can just about do without assassination movies and the throne room but not the classic STW audio.

    On the subject of the sound files, was the "noble lord excellent news you have a son!" file left out and replaced with the crying baby one from MTW, or does it sound when your Daimyo produces a son and not a daughter? I haven't heard it yet because my Daimyo has not had any sons since I've installed the audio. Also there was another sound effect when your general gains a command star, that doesn't seem to be in either?

    Sorry to be come across as overly critical, this is best mod for any TW game I've played so far anyway. I'm just surprised that more aren't playing it.
