Hi guys,

Watched parts of the 6-hour DVD yesterday, and one thing struck me as being a good addition to the sim - music.

I don't mean modern - but what if you could add mp3's for example to a folder in Win Explorer and when running the sim you can then select them in the radio room? - much like in Das Boot when the commander asks for the 'Tipperary song'. I'm sure many people have or know of recordings of WW2 music that could be played - would add that authentic touch, particularly if the gramophone or radio played them a bit 'scratchy' - their sound systems were nothing like todays after all!

Perhaps it could even help the crew morale to hear stirring music.

As I say - just a thought.

Phoenix.

This has already been mentioned and implemented in the game. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Lots of songs to be listened! In Ace of Deeps, even being midis, added a lot to the atmosphere of the game!

Btw, could be said that Ace of Deeps had the very first virtual crew: whenever they reported, we were able to see their faces. Is something I really missed in SHII.

The first thing I'm going to do when I get the game is get hold of a set of Victrola recordings of popular 1930s songs: Lili Marleen will feature prominently, as well as some Jazz tunes - stuff that will get me into the mood of the period.

In fact, why wait - I'm going to track down some of that stuff right now.

... I found a good one at Amazon.de if anyone's interested:

http://www.amazon.de/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000025I8M/qid%3D1100571278/302-1079662-0474430

"Ich bin von Kopf bis Fuss auf Liebe eingestellt" really shows how a title can give a song wings when it's written in German - the language of romance; while "Hoppla, Jetzt Komm' Ich" sounds like a real song for the ages; and of course it has "Lili Marleen" so I reckon that makes it well worth buying right there.

I'm gonna stray from the authenticity a bit - I'll be digitizing the Das Boot soundtrack and playing that throughout. It's not a total departure from historical accuracy - I can still play "Muss I Denn" (spelling?) when I leave port http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif, but when I'm clear of the harbor "Auslaufen" is coming on!

For all those that want the words - help to get in the mood....It's a Long Way to Tipperary....


Up to mighty London came an Irishman one day,
As the streets were paved with gold, sure ev'ry one was gay,
Singing songs of Piccadilly, Strand and Leicester Square,
Till Paddy got excited, then he shouted to them there:

It's a long way to Tipperary,
It's a long way to go,
It's a long way to Tipperary,
To the sweetest girl I know!
Goodbye Piccadilly! Farewell Leicester Square!
It's a long, long way to Tipperary,
But my heart's right there!

Paddy wrote a letter to his Irish Molly O',
Saying "Should you not receive it, write and let me know!
If I make mistakes in spelling, Molly dear", said he,
"Remember it's the pen that's bad, don't lay the blame on me"

It's a long way to Tipperary,
It's a long way to go,
It's a long way to Tipperary,
To the sweetest girl I know!
Goodbye Piccadilly! Farewell Leicester Square!
It's a long, long way to Tipperary,
But my heart's right there!

Molly wrote a neat reply to Irish Paddy O',
Saying "Mike Maloney wants to marry me, and so,
Leave the Strand and Piccadilly, or you'll be to blame,
For love has fairly drove me silly - hoping you're the same!"

It's a long way to Tipperary,
It's a long way to go,
It's a long way to Tipperary,
To the sweetest girl I know!
Goodbye Piccadilly! Farewell Leicester Square!
It's a long, long way to Tipperary,
But my heart's right there!

Here's another good one:

Lili Marleen

Vor der Kaserne vor dem großen Tor
stand eine Laterne
und steht sie noch davor
so woll'n wir uns da wiedersehn
bei der Laterne woll'n wir stehn
wie einst
Lili Marleen
wie einst
Lili Marleen.

Uns're beiden Schatten sah'n wie einer aus;
daß wir so lieb uns hatten
das sah man gleich daraus.
Und alle Leute soll'n es sehn
wenn wir bei der Laterne steh'n
wie einst
Lili Marleen
wie einst
Lili Marleen.

Schon rief der Posten: Sie blasen Zapfenstreich;
es kann drei Tage kosten! - Kam'rad
ich komm ja gleich.
Da sagten wir auf Wiedersehn.
Wie gerne wollt' ich mit dir gehn
mit dir
Lili Marleen
mit dir
Lili Marleen.

Deine Schritte kennt sie
deinen zieren Gang
alle Abend brennt sie
mich vergaß sie lang.
Und sollte mir eine Leids geschehn
wer wird bei der Laterne stehn
mit dir
Lili Marleen?
mit dir
Lili Marleen?

Aus dem stillen Raume
aus der Erde Grund
hebt mich wie im Traume dein verliebter Mund.
Wenn sich die sp¤ten Nebel drehn
werd' ich bei der Laterne stehn
wie einst
Lili Marleen
wie einst
Lili Marleen.
