Topic title speakes for itself really.

I am wondering partly because of Kaleun1961's Hitlers Music topic.

The other reason is idle curosity on my part. After all, it IS a long game, and there is NOT alot you can do while sailing to/from patrol areas that are far away, even with max time compression!

Give us your "cruising" and "attack" music!

My cruising music is:

J-Pop ~ Noir, Eva, Mikuni Shimokawa, Nadesico
Russian ~ Origa
and
Folk/Instrumentals ~ Corrs, Bond, Classical Chillout

Attack music:

Queen, Pink, Madlax, and a HUGE colelction of downloaded tracks! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Yes, yes, yes I know I have really obscure music tastes lol.

Just imagine it, the Neutral hears Thesis of a Cruel Angel and knows he is safe, but that British Tanker/Convoy hears Hammer to Fall or Another One Bites the Dust

lol How approprate are those two Queen ones??

What are your sailing & hunting tunes folks?

I used to listen to music while playing. Now that I have a good soundcard and decent headphones, I prefer to have no music (not even the in-game music).

I find the game more absorbing without the intrusion of any 'out of place' sounds.

I make an exception for the 1940's music in the in-game gramophone player, which adds to the immersion and provides some authentic entertainment on long voyages http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I often listen to the onboard gramaphone to keep me in tune with the times, although I skip some tunes.
I will be setting up my tablet PC along side the desktop to run period appropriate movies like Run Silent, Run Deep, Operation Pettycoat,The Enemy Below, Das Boot, U 571 and others when I start SH4.
Can we add music to SH3? what to do, where to get it?

Last time I let my music run on random flight of the vakyries came on and I found myself taking on the HMS Hood with the deck gun laughing maniacly in Scapa Flow with bombs dropping all around me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Now I just listen to American Talk radio while I play. Mostly the historical and news stuff. I've found some fascinating history programs on talk radio where they did 3 hours with churchhill's history of the english speaking people and then the next day another 3 hours with a new author's history of the english speaking peoples that goes up through our time.

also fascinating history subjects about colonial America which is good for me as an imigrant to learn. I heard some really terrible things about radio over here that I have been very pleasently suprised http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Haven't played for a while but when I do, I have my head attached to the hydrophone ...
and I dance to the beat of torps exploding and the shipping revs, as I calculate speeds and AOB..

Boogie to the left, 30, sharp to the right 5, depth to 3, yeah!. any moment now.. LOSSSSSSSS
boom boom boom

Another day....

I have about 800 songs in my WinAmp playlist, and are all songs between 1923 - 1948, and a few Pink Floyd tunes http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif I prefer to use my WinAmp Media Player instead of the Gramophone, and I don't seem to suffer much fps loss, as long as I don't listen to internet radio.

With the exception of "Tipperary" (in salute to Das Boot) all of mine are in German .....
I dumped all of the English language tunes from GWX's gramophone list, added the SH3 gramophone pack from subsim.com, plus period German military songs downloaded off the internet.
Included is Deutschland Uber Alles sung by a Panzer regimental chorus.

Thankfully the new football season has started again, so for my normal weekend gaming sessions I've got the footie on the radio. This weekend saw Sunderland beat Spurs 1-0, ha ha!
