Hello Artemis Hive Mind!   What are the music cues that direct the game to play certain parts of the soundtrack and where are they found?  I know how to replace them but wanted to know what exactly make one soundtrack play over another.  Thanks!

This is a very good question. One that I don't know if anyone knows the answer to.

I can tell you that two music files in particular are played on the game title screen, and when you switch to server select to pick the game type. I replaced both of those in the "Strike Force Seven" mod. The first is a slower, more soft sounding song, but the second is a "main title" type exciting song.

Some of the other files you may be able to guess from the name. For instance "On the Warpath" is probably played at some time when the Artemis is warping around.

yeah.  What I have been doing is listening to them to get a "feel" for what kind of sound/timbre/feeling the track is going for and then looking for a good replacement.  So far so good but I would like to know more about the soundtrack triggers.

We can trigger audio files, right? Can't you just silence the background music and cue audiofiles to play instead?

I was thinking about trying to create an FM like radio which can be operated by Comms. Why not make Comms 'scan' for a channel with some nice Kralien Throat Singing ?

The artemis.ini file seems to hold al lot of cues. Not for the music however.
