• Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

IamWhoa's SFX 1.1 (Updated May 16)

SFXMODBanner.jpg





Description:

This mod is an attempt to craft what will hopefully be a more pleasant sounding experience. I was originally inspired to do this by Crusader King's loud theme music, which always made me jump. Secondly, some of the sound effects (especially the catapult one) were fairly abrasive. Almost all the SFX have been tweaked or replaced in some way. These sounds were crafted from a variety of sources, including those provided by Cheezy_Monkey and Crossbowman at Age of Kings Heaven.

The additional Ambient Music Add-on punctuates the current Crusader Kings music with more ambient sounds, like middle eastern instrumentation, rain, wind, and other medieval elements. Though I tried fully replacing the music with my own, it has proven to be beyond me for lack of proper equipment. I've included at least one of my own simple recordings to see how that flies.



To install:


- Make a back up of your music and SFX folders.
- Extract the two RAR's (if you download them both) to the Crusader Kings directory. Simple as that. Though you can listen to the sounds without installing the mod, just extract to a fresh folder on your desktop or somewhere else. You can pick and choose in this way as well.

Patch 1.1

Four SFX files were bigger in size than they needed to be. At least one was about 8 seconds longer than it needed to be (just silence) and similar things have been fixed.

Yeah the original CK sounds are annoying as hell. Especially the "court" sound with its hellishly loud fanfare. :mad:

But these are GREAT!!! I installed them already. A thousand thanks!! :)

Many thanks for this!

I have a strong feeling the game is running a lot smoother with these sounds. That's an illusion of course, but an interesting one. Didn't expect sounds could change the entire feel of game so much. :)

The new fanfare is the one I'm least happy with, which is kind of funny since I thought the original fanfare was the most annoying to begin with! I could change it or use a different one I made, but things seem adequate at the moment. Anyway, I'm glad it's liked much better. :)

jordiyes: If there is a sound folder within the Rome directory, then it's almost certain you can change the sounds. I don't have the game so I don't know.

Mauricio: That's interesting. I can't remember if the files are actually larger on average, but many are bigger.

Since ye olde FileFront is going down I changed these to MegaUpload (or will after this post).

Edit: And it's still there. Ok, going back to FileFront.

Hmm...i just reuploaded the sound and music in one 7 zip file, as it was essential to me and i want others to enjoy this mod as well.
I assume the mod is not available through the OP links as they simply havent got updated (the links). If the IamWhoa wants me take this down, please send me a PM.

______________________________
EDIT in 2019
The old upload server location appears to be a bug infested mess again and again.
So see reupload in post below.
______________________________
DL Info: Its around 20 mb. 12 for sounds and 8 for the music part.
IF there is an issue with the download link, please tell.
