    Boy this game brings me back when I first played my first Descent game: Descent II with the Redbook soundtrack.

    When playing Overload, an idea came to my mind. What if I can bring back the full “Descent” nostalgia back? What if I can “change” the music so it can play Descent II Soundtrack but without touching any files from Overload whatsoever?

    Well, It is coming along. I started a little project that reads when the game plays a specific audio cue. If a specific cue is detect, play the correct music accordingly.

    Here is a proof of concept:

    Unfortunately, to prevent copyright issues, I do not plan to release the tool to the public. I will have to ask first. Hopefully I will be able to.

    Tell me what you think. 🙂

    As cool as this is, I’ve never played any games with music on. It distracts from hearing my opponents.

    You could release the utility without the Descent music and force the user to supply it.

    It could be a very good idea. I know how to make it work.

    I took the liberty of releasing a public test version of the tool.

    Here is the link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/zd9s01is8ofxgbk/Overload%20Cutom%20Music%20Player.zip?dl=0

    It is 100mb since it contains the wav files of about 7 track of Descent I and II within the tool itself. This release is only to test if it works with the public.

    constructive reviews please…

    The best language is the one that lets you solve your problem.
