... Obviously, Joshua 2's better.

:wtf:

There are three revisions: the original one, which is being used in Blue Planet: Age of Aquarius; the January revision; and the August revision. Which one is better? ;)

Both versions I listed to have a definate beginning and an end, personally I'd prefer it if the songs blended together rather seamlessly (and yes, when people look at the Tech Room, they will hear it more than once).

I'd like it too, but the Freespace 2 ingame music player doesn't seamlessly move from one track to another (or even loop seamlessly for that matter) without an audible pause between tracks. This makes looping songs even more jarring to listen to than if the song fades out to silence between playings.

Why haven't you released a custom music track tutorial yet Darius :hopping:

Released a what now? A tutorial on how to make music?

Tips on making arranging the custom track :)

The TBL is pretty self explanatory, thought you might have "perfected" a technique. :yes: to the War in Heaven trailer by the way. Nice new bomb effects.

Wow, I really like Joshua3. Use it. :D

I think all three versions should be used. Keep the original as battle music, use the January revision as menu music, and the August revision as credits music.

I don't see how Joshua 2 would works as menu music, considering it's very fast-paced.

The original can't be used for menu music, obviously. :nod:

However, the other two can.

Joshua: Original
Joshua 2: Original Remix
Joshua 3: Remix of the Remix.

Just so we're clear. :nervous:

I'll stick to that. :)

Original = Battle music
Remix = Menu music
Remix of the Remix = Credits music, or cutscene music

That's my opinion. :)

I'd agree with AE on this one. The original Joshua 2 is rather upbeat. Having it as a menu track or during the credits is kind of like having Fear Factory's Self Bias Resistor as an ambient track.

These are effing brilliant! You are up there with Jesper Kyd, Frank Klepacki and other amazing music creation people(sorry, tired :P)


I like Joshua3.mp3 more, but i'm having a hard time imagining it in the main menu, since the main menu for me is not meant to spoil anything. If anything the main menu music should be kinda dark and not foretelling of the story. so i think Joshuamenu.mp3 should go in the menu but it could use some more work, IMO remove the drums, they make it into this funky jam that sounds nice. but doesn't fit in the ambiance of space and the emptyness the first song shows(which is good).

this is really hard actually, cause i equally like both (save for the drums on joshuamenu) but i've come to this


Joshua3.mp3 for credits/epic moment ingame say for example the arrival of a big ship or something good that happens
Joshuamenu.mp3 for menu, but yeah. the drums in my opinion really doesn't fit. or you could change the drums into another type of drums? l

...is it me, or do I think that name confusion has just reached a new level of insanity? :nervous:

Um, Darius, just so that everyone's clear, what's the name of all three pieces?

In order to address the original question... Joshua2 is the track used in Age of Aquarius. Joshua3 is a remix of Joshua2, originally intended to become a menu track or something on War in Heaven. Joshuamenu is yet another remix, which I'd fancy having as a credits track.

Right?  :nervous:

I like the version of Joshua II in your first post. It reminds me of the music used in the X series.
