    Anyone else (besides me) dislike the regular dungeon or war mode music/sound track? (2d client, don't know if it's same in Enhanced) I know many of you will say "That's what the music on/off feature is for... blah blah blah..." ..and I do use this feature often, since I also enjoy listening to all the other themes, but that's not the point. I was just wondering who else dislikes these two soundtracks or what other music do you dislike from the game?

    I personally only like Stones, and a couple of others. I usually play without the sound off, due to being hearing impaired and I'd have to "wake the Dead" so to speak to be able to hear it anyway. on to your question though the war mode is Ok , but I get a little Irritated with the dungeon theme.

    I still prefer the original music, but most of the SA stuff is nice, albeit too short.

    I turned the UO music off on my first day. I've never turned it back on. I never will.

    I've never played with sound.. My first day of UO I had it on and found the music, sound effects and footsteps extremely annoying. Turned them off, havent turned them back on since.

    Oh.. and I don't like the Primeval Lich music.. as I keep saying, it sounds more like it belongs in PSO than UO.

    What I don't like are most of the tracks (like the ones from dungeons and Britain) that don't stop, even if you leave the area, until you enter an area with a different BGM.

    I love cranking out those 'Origin Audio CD' tracks when I'm feeling nostalgic :)

    Everything from the fear and trepidation of the Ultima VII/Serpent Isle Combat track (conjures up haunted images of battling stone harpies on that Sultan's Island and its hilarious use while my party fights for its life against...a deer), the eerieness of Conversations with Gwenno to the heroic drama of the Great Earth Serpent.

    Selim's bar is a new one to me though, oh dear I wished I'd played Strike Commander now. 'We create Worlds, even when stoned'? :p

    Now if they included some Privateer tracks I'd be set :)

    I hate this too! But even if I enter an area with a different back ground music, it still often doesn't change. Especially with the dungeon one cause sometimes I just run by a cemetary or near a dungeon site for a brief second and the theme music gets stuck on and it seems to never end, no matter where I go or what I do next, unless I go to war mode (which I also dislike, however, I like the Tokuno and SA war mode theme) but after getting off war mode it goes back to dungeon mode... argh! It just the fact that out of all the music that gets stuck like this, with their odds, it seems that the dungeon one is the most prominent that does this, the worst of em all.

    Most of them. I wish they would allow you to modify the soundtrack like you could in 2d. I would love to play to the soundtrack of 'Kingdom of Heaven'

    I like the music of UO but it is short lived for me. As with all games I play,music loses its novelty shortly after logging in and gets turned off.I`m more interested in hearing the little things like footsteps,wind,birds or swords clanging or in some cases engines roaring and tires burning!

    No music for me.

    I play with the music turned off. Every now and then I'll turn it back on just to hear it and bring back that feeling of what it was like exploring back when I first started.
