Hi, first I would like to point out that I am not only a huge fan of the UT series, but also a huge fan of the music!
Lets look at the UT2003 music folder:
For now, lets just focus on the music files named "LevelX.ogg", where X = any number.
In the UT2003 folder, the music files are Level 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, 13.
Now lets look at the UT2004 music folder:
In the UT2004 folder, the music files are UT2003 files (Level 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, 13), plus additional ones: Level 7, 9, 11, 15, 16.
There are a few things that I have noticed:
1. UT2003 used the files 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, 13. As you can see, they skipped some numbers (like Level7), and those files were picked up in UT2004. This got me thinking...Did you guys make Level 7 and 9 before you started working on UT2004? Were they the "rejected" music files from UT2003 that got picked up in UT2004?
2. After that, this got me thinking even more...Where are the files named Level 1, 4, 10, 12, and 14? Were they ever made? or did you randomly skip numbers while making them? It would make more sense if the music files were actually made, but decided not to be used. If you happened to create more maps in UT2004, would you probably end up using Level10.ogg for example?
3. And after that, I thought about it even more...Are there any files that go past Level 16? Was there a Level 17, what number did you guys stop at? 20? maybe even Level 30?
4. I thought about it even more, and I couldnt sleep that night. I only went over the LevelX.ogg files...what about the other files? I'm pretty sure there are other files that were not used in UT2004, but do exist somewhere. A song comes across my head, its Mech8. It was used in the original UT, and UT3, but not in UT2003/2004. Did you create a Mech8 version for UT2003/4 and ended up not using it?
Mech8 from UT99 = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBnaKD7CU6M
Mech8 from UT3 = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=liaNSxvPQGU
Mech8 from UT2004 = ?
What about Lockdown? Skyward? Foregone? Etc..
5. This can also apply to UT99 and UT3, do you have unreleased songs from those games?
I would like to see if you guys have unreleased music for the UT2 series (UT2 = UT2003/4, in my mind atleast). If you do (which I am really sure that you do, or atleast hope :P), do you still have them lying around somewhere? Can you release them? I want more UT music!
I have to end this post with this amazing song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bNDUwUbMPFg
