WRT making game soundtracks. First step is to get into MP3s, downloading
and playing them. (hope you have some bandwidth.) Then you can search
the hell
out of everywhere for suitable MP3s. Kr'rt's MP3 sight is has a lot of
stuff.	Then you develop your playlists depending on what you're

At GZG the concept was almost executed properly as we brought down tons
of MP3s,
expect that my CD/DVD drive on my notebook began developing serious
problem. But
a notebook or rio, combined with one of those surround sound systems for
your PC
can give you the power of creating appropriate soundtracks on the fly.
We had
the aliens soundtrack going for Stuart's game, then switched to Rot
Hafen for
general gaming, then during parts of Grey Day had ambient combat sounds

(Note that whoever brought the CD player to G3	had burnt some very nice
music onto CDs also, same concept except audio instead of MP3)

Next time Kr'rt comes up (end of month) we'll make a concerted effort to
consolidate all the stuff I have into appropriate directories so Kr'rt
can make
MP3 directories for download.

P.S. Personally I'm a huge soundtrack fan and at any given time of the
day have
one running through my head differning on the situation. On some of our
harrowing "insertions" I'll usually have Holst's "Mars" cranking through
head.... It even adds a flare of dramatic to even mundane situations and
writing Rot Hafen, I found that the appropriate music significantly
aided the
creative process.
