By WrenchSF/Wo*/SF2 New "Taking Damage" sound
-For SF/Wo* and SF2 Series games.
This little mod replaces one of the acursed 'I'm taking damage' wavs with one the most famous sound bites in movie history.
Yes, that's right ... the World Famous Wilhelm Scream
Like the rest of you, I'm tired of hearing that yahoo always complaining -- at least now he'll say something Historic.
Tested in my SF2NA-based WW2 PTO install; you milage may vary
Please read the install instructions below.
By BrennusMenu Music (EU) is a menu music project created to compliment Strike Fighters 2: Europe.
The file contains a small program by the name JSGME (JoneSoft Generic Mod Enabler) which can enable or disable the mod when used correctly. It's optional but highly recommended.
The Saved Games folder should be extracted to "C:\Users\(Your User Name)". If you don't wish to use the JSGME program simply copy the various folders from the folder MODS and move them to "C:\Users\(Your User Name)\Saved Games\ThirdWire\Operation Desert Storm".
By HomeFriesTested with Strike Fighters 2 series; should work with SF1 series via manual install.
This music theme was originally designed for Falcon BMS 4.32, but arguably better fits SF2 North Atlantic from a thematic standpoint.
This mod takes Harold Faltermeyer's music from the 1986 Paramount film "Top Gun" and applies it thematically to the different UI screens. The music was ripped from the film and processed by CamelBlue, but in some cases the removal of dialog resulted in muted music or inconsistent volume. In these cases, I mixed in the audio track of the F-14s shooting down the Libyan MiG-23's over the Gulf of Sidra. This mix worked better than I had hoped possible.
Now all we need is for somebody to mod the MiG-28...or perhaps an F-5 skin ;).
Easy Installation (no other existing menu mod)
Copy the included Menu folder into your SF2 mods folder
Manual Installation (existing menu mod)
In most cases, I used the same name of the existing theme, so you can just insert the WAV files into your [sF2 Mods]\Menu folder. There are some exceptions noted below:
Replace the BackgroundMusic line with "BackgroundMusic=CreditsScreen.wav" (sans quotes) in the following files:
AWARDSCREEN.INI MEDALLISTSCREEN.INI VIEWMEDALSCREEN.INI
Replace the BackgroundMusic line with "BackgroundMusic=Planning.wav" (sans quotes) in the following files:
HANGARSCREEN.INI LOADOUTSCREEN.INI PLANNINGMAPSCREEN.INI ROSTERSCREEN.INI
Replace the BackgroundMusic line with "BackgroundMusic=CampaignScreen.wav" (sans quotes) in the following files:
[4. Optional Enhancements]
I have another mod that reduces the size of the object icons on the planning map and makes them semi-transparent in order to see the map beneath the units. Since this mod also makes changes to the PLANNINGMAPSCREEN.INI, I have included this mod as an optional installation. If you copy these files to your [sF2 Mods]\Menu folder, then you will have both the Top Gun Music Theme and the new map icons working together.
[5. Future Compatibility Issues]
In the effort to minimize the size of this mod, I used the some of the same files across multiple menus. This means that in order to ensure compatibility with future official SF2 patches, you may need to extract the ini files listed in the previous section from the MenuData.CAT file and compare the files to ensure compatibility. You can quickly find my changes in the sections bracketed by //.
Likewise, you can always copy and rename the WAV files to match the default WAV filenames in order to ensure compatibility for future patches.
[6. Additional Information]
The debrief sound files are not listed in an INI from the Menu folder, but rather are listed by nation in the NATIONS.INI file. This means that even if you decide to remove this mod, you could If you wish rename the existing debrief music files and allow them to be played for the U.S. Navy. The updated section in your NATIONS.INI should read:
[Nation003] <...> DebriefSuccessMusic=[RenamedDebriefSuccess].wav DebriefFailMusic=[RenamedDebriefFail].wav DebriefKilledMusic=[RenamedDebriefKilled].wav <...>
For support, please post in this File Announcement thread at CombatAce.

By mono27Hi everybody!
Here it's back! For those who have played the nice sim from Microprose, "Fleet Defender", and want to remember that times (oh, the good old days).
This is the song that sounds in the Menu screens of Fleet Defender, and now you can use it as the Main Screen theme (or any other screen) in Strike Fighters 2: North Atlantic.
I hope you enjoy it!
PD: For those who are new in the world of flight sims sure they will find this MIDI sound "old", but those who are veterans in this (like me) will become nostalgic.
By Ice ManWith these songs I tried to create an atmosphere which brings the tragic period of the war of the Falklands / Malvinas, I hope you like them.
Place the files into the "Menu" folder.
By liamp51Hi all,
This is a new JetEngine.WAV file to replace the old stock JetEngine.WAV. I have taken two files and imported them into Audacity and edited the levels and such to create what I think is a more authentic, universal jet engine sound for all stock, and 3rd party aircraft. It has more bass, and sound more like your hearing the aircraft from about a 100 feet away, instead of 2-3. For the most part, you can't really hear the fan blades and whine of a turbojet from 100 or more feet away. It's more of a roar. I had been looking for a sound like this for awhile, but I finally made it my self. Drop in your Sounds folder and overwrite when asked.
Credits-These two files were merged together to create the final product:
Guest-Strike fighters engine sounds-JetEngine
Spillone104-Jet Sounds 3+Weapons-TT-1full
Here is the recommended SOUNDLIST.ini entry for JetEngine:
Here is another Loadout Screen song just in case you want less of Jimi's guitar. Just drop this wav. file in your SF2V Menu mod folder and enjoy a little Rare Earth while arming up your Mud-Mover.
This mod will add music and other surprises to your SF2V install. The goal is to ENHANCE your 1960's Air War Vietnam experience and provide a little historical background. A read me file for installation is provided. Enjoy and listen carefully for surprises....Hanoi Hannah may have something to say ....:)
Tested on stand alone SF2V with the Gold Expansion Pack installed.
By Rambler 1-1This is a mod that I have been working on with the intent of replacing the generic wingman voices with those of the Star Fox team, as in Star Fox 64. This means you'll no longer be flying with "anonymous wingmen #1, 2 and 3", you'll be flying with Falco, Peppy and Slippy.
It's a bit of a tribute to SF64, because it was one of the first games to have full voice acting, rather then just text. Some of the voices and quotes are legendary as well. I have tried to fit in as many phrases from SF64 as I could, and replaced some calls and responses with generic chatter.
You may have to play Starfox 64 (or at least know something about it) to appreciate this mod.
don't forget to read the README!
