[HL1 Music] New Menu Theme (Based on PS2)
« on: June 22, 2006, 12:37:53 AM »

The PS2 menu theme (while good) I always thought was rather bland. Those who have heard it know what I'm talking about. Low quality mono and pretty boring. Although I suppose that style works for a menu such as Half-Life's (Steam version, anyway). So, me liking things big, I set out to redo the theme using the original as a base. This is the result of about a half a day's work in FLStudio. I hope you all enjoy it. Simply drop it into your "half-life\valve\media" folder for it to work.

MP3 192Kbps, 817Kb, 34 seconds.

EDIT: Fixed a looping problem.

Actually I thought about that but the original stands well enough on its own. I may, however, try doing a completely new replacement soundtrack as practice at nailing HL's music style. It's an interesting style I'd like to learn...

Thanks for the feedback, guys. :)

Wow... I love it. That is totally replacing my menu music now (Originally had the Valve theme.)

And if you're up to making a new soundtrack, good luck with that! I bet it'd be interesting to hear.

I love this! It like a mix of Half-Life and Perfect Dark music ;D
Say goodbye, regular PS2 menu music!

Half-Life 2006. Music reminds me of something futuristic while retaining the classic Half-Life feel.

Absolutely brilliant work. This is going to replace my current gamestartup.mp3 for sure.

My previous version was the same music, but was from Ben Houge's official site, not the one somebody put a microphone in front of their TV and recorded that. Or however they recorded it.

This is a good replacement, using.

A high quality version, you mean? You have a link for that? I'd love to have it.
