*rant appears out of nowhere even though you're the only player, then proceeds to trample you

Ahem. Necroposting time!
Just a small idea.
What if when the player has no teammates in his near vicinity for some time, an almost unnoticeable ambient music will start playing? And if something damages that lone player when the music is playing, an orchestral hit or something will play?

:skull: Necro’ing old topics is totally allowed and encouraged! :100: :100:

Yes this is where some ambient music could enhance the mood.

Maybe not this one, too much like the error sound in Windows 3.1 :laughing: but yes, something similar.


#29

Damn, the player you put into the post isn’t working for me, @romdos
Maybe another link?
Should I try to make ambient music?

Odd, it’s on wikimedia.org - in case you are blocking scripts from other domains.
The direct link is https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/7d/Orchestra_hit.ogg

Yes :slight_smile:


#31

I have already started working. :slight_smile:
So strange, I can’t open even the downloaded file. May be something with my computer being a Mac.


#32

That’s the reason. It won’t work in Safari, and there doesn’t seem to be any 3rd party solution/plugin for it. You can always play .ogg in VLC


#33

Unfortunately It seems, that on the newer versions there is no VLC.
I guess, time to make something else.
Oh well, I like doing stuff.


#34

So, this thing. No percussion, not to distract, only a low tone rhythmic synth.
Best used looped, faded in at first.


#35

I created this effect, I checked, It will work if played with the main music.
