Muisc in the KS Mod

Post  7thGalaxy on Sat Jun 27, 2015 8:27 am

I mentioned last night that I am able to arrange and produce wav files of marching music to include more variety in the soundscape of the game. If you have any good examples of Napoleonic marching tunes, feel free to suggest them here and I'll put something together.

Fantastic idea, love games with music over them [check out TROPICO 3 if you dance salsa :-)]

Unfortunately, my knowledge of military music is very limited but THE BRITISH GRENADIERS was played recently when the Welsh Guard's colours were trooped before Her Majesty!

That's good news. Thanks.

It would be very nice to have 'Garry Owen' included in the Little Bighorn Campaign Mod. Is that possible please?

Sure you just have to decide under what circumstance it will be played and whether it should be continuous or one time. I'd like to here it just as the troopers get closely barbered.

That is a deeply unpatriotic suggestion, Uncle Billy.  Tsk tsk  pale

I was thinking you'd hear it when you hit the 'use road' button, as the US army player.  In the stock game there are 2 regimental marches which alternate each time you press that button, so substituting for one of those would be good.

"British Grenadiers" is already used as march music in the mod. I think the "Liburetto" march (used famously in the film "Barry Lyndon") is in there too, plus a Scottish bagpipe tune.

My vote would be to find a usable copy of "Over The Hills and Far Away", possibly the splash screen music used in the Blenheim mod would be a good start.

Martin - what do you think the most appropriate musical forces would be for the music. As far as I know, the regiments often had small marching bands, but they would be occupied with casualty removal once the battle was joined. Most of the music currently in the game is fife and drum. I'm assuming that much like naval bands, it depended on the wealth of the regiment/commanding officer.

Fife & drum sounds good Tom.  And perhaps just fifes at a push.  But if all you can find includes brass instruments too, I would not complain  Very Happy

I think we’re looking for a ‘feel’ rather than complete historical accuracy in this area.

As far as I recall, the band of the 7th accompanied the regiment on its march to the Yellowstone, so in theory would have been present if they had found the Sioux camps on say the Little Missouri.  But they were left on the Yellowstone when it set out on its final mission.   The lack of horses (a perennial cavalry problem) was probably the main factor here.  Even after leaving the newest recruits at Fort Abraham Lincoln, about 150 men had to make the long march to the Yellowstone on foot.

I'm not sure of the position with the other regiments in the campaign, for example the 2nd and 3rd Cavalry which were with Crook in June.  We hear a lot about the 7th, but that's partly due to the showman Custer, and partly due to its fate.  I would very surprised if the other regiments did not also have bands.  As well as for formal parades and so on, they were seen as a key element in maintaining morale when off duty, by performing at regimental displays, and private parties.

There may be a difference between campaigning on the plains and in the ACW however.  In the ACW they would often be present at battlefields, acting as you suggest as stretcher bearers.  They also had a role in the ammo supply chain.  Even in the ACW though, they were unlikely to be present on ACW raids, due again to horse shortages.  Very few regiments on either side ever had their full complement mounted.
