History

#1 Updated by Dragonji over 5 years ago

Was it added in legacy or delivered from etmain?

#2 Updated by Spyhawk over 5 years ago

Added. Afaik, etmain doesn’t have any voice sound at startup.

#3 Updated by Dragonji over 5 years ago

I think this is about text as well. How about it?

#4 Updated by Spyhawk over 5 years ago

I think the text is adequate, but maybe you have a better suggestion?

#5 Updated by Radegast over 5 years ago

I agree that this announcement doesn’t fit the atmosphere of our mod, but we will first have to find one that does in order to replace it. Feel free to create a feature request.

I think we are not going to find a fitting announcement, so we should use a sound effect instead. My ideas:

  1. Possibly a military drum roll?
  2. Trumpet?
  3. Civil defence siren?

Make your own suggestion. There are plenty of those kind of sound effects on the internet.

And I think it would be a good idea to change the end of map music to a Wehrmacht march when the axis win and the liberty march music when the allies win.

#7 Updated by Dragonji over 5 years ago

Isn’t such stuff forbidden in Germany?

#8 Updated by IR4T4 over 5 years ago

Some lyrics are forbidden in germany but I can’t imagine a march itself.

+1 for the marches

To show our deepest respect to all victims of ww2 and we distance ourself from any racist background we might add a text on the winning screen. I think these words should also be spread in the wiki. On first view many people are gettting the impression ET is a nazi game.

Absolutely. I was watching the Redemption video the other day, and I was thinking a similar "bell" sound (actually part of the sound track) that happens at startup would be perfect.

Also, +1 for a drum sound instead of the "prepare to fight".

Yes, I actually believe this is important. We could also use the exit screen to display such a text. It actually shows a duplicate of the original credits.

EDIT: We should also replace the mono sound by stereo sound version (implement #398 first).
