Dogfights Soundtrack for Menus


DOGFIGHTS Soundtrack Converted to WAV
by JosefK

Although this is my conversion, all the credit really should go to FranK11 on YouTube who put both volumes of the two "Dogfights" episodic series soundtrack there plus YouTuber Mobius 176 who placed "Dogfights History Channel Soundtrack Deadly Skies Main Theme" on YouTube also.  I just downloaded the clips and converted to MP3, then WAV.  If the WAV is insufficient, I have the MP3s.

Of course, you're going to have to rename the files to which background music you want in SF2.  That's up to you, but some pointers from recent experience & going over Viper63's awesome work:

1) You will want to put a WAV in the Flight folder to call "Loading.wav" and a screen called "LoadingScreen.jpg"

2) You will want to rename these files to the names below and park in the Menu folder:

*BaseScreen.wav
*CampaignScreen.wav
*CreditsScreen.wav
*DebriefFail.wav
*DebriefKilled.wav
*DebriefSuccess.wav
*HangarScreen.wav
*LoadoutScreen.wav
*MainScreen.wav
*OptionsScreen.wav
*RecordScreen.wav
*SingleMissionScreen.wav

You also should create many JPGs for the menu folder like at the least:

*CampaignScreen.jpg
*CreditsScreen.jpg
*DebriefScreen.jpg
*DefaultBaseScreen.jog
*DefaultEndScreen.jpg
*LoadoutScreen.jpg
*MainScreen.jpg
*MissionEditor.jpg
*OptionsScreen.jpg
*PilotRecordScreen.jpg
*PlanningMapScreen.jpg
*RosterScreen.jpg
*SingleMissionScreen.jpg
*Titles.jpg

There you go.  Probably more information than you wanted, but information you need in modding menus for SF2.

      ****World War Two period music for SF2****
       
       
      Ever since I first attempted a WW2 install for SF2 many moons ago, I have strove to make it as much "period" as possible. Of course, the music on each screen was modern and didnt fit in with WW2 in my estimation. I decided to try to locate some music from the era. Well, it wasnt hard at all! My first search located a wonderful plethora of websites and stations that still play and love the era and its music. It was all quite fun and interesting. Out of them all, my favorite has quickly become the VI corps music website located at http://www.6thcorpsmusic.us/. This is only a small part of a website put together by a woman in honor of her father who fought during WW2 in the 6th engineer corps.
      I was able to download a number of songs from this website, my favorite being Glenn Miller, and convert them to .wav format for use in SF2. Install is simple. Just unzip the file into your StrikeFighters2 folder. Let it overwrite your menu folder. For the hangar music, I have included my hangarscreen.ini. As long as you havent extracted yours from your SF2 install for any other purpose, simply do nothing. If you have extrated it for whatever reason, its still simple. Just open the ini in a txt editor and add this...
       
      BackgroundMusic=HangerMusic.wav
       
      And there ya have it. Hope you enjoy this music as much as I do. If not, visit the VI corps website and download and convert your own favorites, it was fun! Of course, this is oriented towards U.S. tastes at the time. I'd love to see a German, British, or even Japanese version of menu music come out. The .mpg files can be converted here... http://media.io

      Period-appropriate piano music for the French campaign in Over Flanders Fields sets quite a different mood than the cinematic presentation of OBD Software’s official soundtrack. Additional musical immersion mod available for Germany, and may follow for other nations.
       
      The Music: Gabriel Fauré was the most progressive and celebrated French composer of his generation. In the later years of his life, struggling with deafness, his music took a darker, more introspective turn. Pensive anger, grief, despair, bouts of calm and remembered joy--presaged the bleeding of France in the Great War.
