I'm playing AC2 while being notorious at all times to give the game at least a little bit of necessary stealth.

But I'm also getting really annoyed by music that plays while player is notorious. Playing 30+ hours with that same music...

I think all music is in Assassin's Creed II\SoundData\pc\sounds_sfx.pck, so someone should extract sounds first and create replacement .pck. I can't find any working pck extractor myself.

Or if somebody can rewrite the code so that "notorious music" is linked to default music for that area... This seems impossible to do, but I hope somebody can surprise me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

You will never be nutorious if you wear medichi cape in Florence Tuscani and San Giminiano and venetian cape in Venice and and Romangna.

Unless you're on a mission where you're notorious by default, in which case it can't be helped.

I think his point was based on him intentionally being notorious all the time to make the game more challenging. you'd think there would be an option to turn the music off.. I can't check at the moment though http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Yes, I WANT to be notorious, I wear Auditore cape because of it...
I just hate the music. And there is no option for turning it off, it can only be done by modifying the files.

I could probably get no notorious-music if I could extract pck file, remove notorious-music file, and pack the rest of the files to new pck. Maybe the game would give me an error, but I think not. The problem is just that I can't find any proper pck extractor.

EDIT: I hate that this game is unmoddable. I understand it's because of DRM, but they should at least give us some options in .ini file. I don't think giving us the option to (for example) change the LOD distance would make the DRM harder to bypass. Combining all files in big packs also makes the game harder to patch. And I mean the actual game not the UbiLauncher.
