Meet the sniper only unreleased

I think a little clarification is needed here. If I am correct, the meet the sniper theme is the only one not to be put in the game? --Stevoisiak 20:44, 21 September 2010 (UTC)


Halloween 2010?

Shouldn't the menu music for the Halloween 2010 Update be included? Sorry if I'm jumping the gun a bit here. --Fantomas 22:26, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

Unfortunately this isn't possible as of yet. The GCF extractor is broken. But thanks, we'll keep it so mind and put it up when we can. – Smashman (talk) 22:29, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
Page has been added for the new Halloween Music, it is called Haunted Fortress 2-Bpc908 01:30, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
The official name for the Halloween Song is Haunted Fortress 2, can you please change it on the nav bar? - Bpc908 14:41, 30 October 2010 (UTC)

Degroot keep

Should we include the new theme that plays when you capture A and B on Degroot Keep? Cause that's a pretty cool song that I think should be included. Smashbrother101 16:07, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

Your Team Won

Why is "Your Team Lost" here but not Your Team Won? Stbeecher 22:45, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Your Team Won is not composed by Mike Morasky, it is edited victory sound from TFC, which is possibly stock. SiPlus 03:15, 18 July 2011 (PDT)
Poking around in the TFC GCF, I'm seeing seeing a file which seems to match the applause and cheering which can be heard in the TF2 sound. I'm not, however, locating anything similar to the music cue which plays simultaneous to that in the TF2 victory sound... you know, the one which appears at the end of every single TF2 video, and is the ending for the TF2 Main Theme, Playing With Danger, and the Rocket Jump Waltz, all three of which were composed by Mike Morasky.

The applause and cheering is TFC victory sound. TF2 uses the same sound but with drums and "VICTORY!". SiPlus 10:49, 11 August 2011 (PDT)

Redirects

Are redirects to the individual tracks allowed or will we get trouble with translations then? Kazzymodus 23:51, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

We need the soundtrack page to be in the format of the soundtrack page on the Portal Wiki

I think it will neaten it up, plus when I tried to copy and paste code to see if it will work, it didn't. So, that is one of the many features that need to be added to this wiki.

It seems neat enough to me. maggosh 00:03, 29 May 2011 (UTC)

Soundtrack Download

Whipped together a Soundtrack File if anyone wants to add it to the page? http://www.mediafire.com/?4eq92q7i44ch4bz Hawkshadow741 08:26, 3 August 2011 (PDT)

Renamed

How about renaming this to the actual title, by what I have read, Team Fortress 2 official Soundtrack? Rolandius 06:00, 16 August 2011 (PDT)

Numbering template for the Soundtracks

Might be nice to have a (language switching) template for the number of soundtracks. Right now we have to edit all soundtrack pages to edit the total number of soundtracks.
So instead of having "...being one of fifteen different main menu start up themes." we could have "being one of {{number of soundtracks}} different main menu start up themes." User SackZement signature.gifSackZement <Talk> 03:01, 15 October 2011 (PDT)

Intruder Alert Midi?

There's a Midi version of 'Intruder Alert' that I feel should be on the Soundtrack page. What do others think? IWithered (talk) 11:25, 12 June 2014 (PDT)

Vinyl Record

The page really needs a picture of the vinyl record version of the soundtrack. Leaderboard class scout.png SCUNT MAIN 10:32, 2 May 2017 (PDT)

Music Analysis

There was an edit to this page several years ago that removed a section dedicated to the music theory of the soundtrack and notation of certain pieces and stings. While I agree it could have been presented in a much better way I believe the information is good to have. The edit in question: https://wiki.teamfortress.com/w/index.php?title=Team_Fortress_2_Official_Soundtrack&oldid=1269956. I think some of it, particularly the notation should be moved to the Team Fortress 2 (Main Theme) (Soundtrack) page or alternatively deleted, and some of the overall info about the blues scales and instrumentation left here (with some tidying up). I should be able to contribute some more info as well, was just wondering if anyone had opinions to share on the subject first.

Sounds like a nice addition, though the original was lacking in quality somewhat. ⇒Leaderboard class spy.png Anyar (talk/contributions/giveaway) 17:42, 7 May 2017 (PDT)


Really, if you mean what I think you mean, that might be something I have hoped for some time, as someone who grew up with the music genres Mike Morasky is tributing ( as I noted recently, on that account, my perspective is uncommon here, YMMV). I have a sincere deep appreciation for his work.
Looking at the old material you linked, I can see how that might be unappreciated by the general audience here, which can’t read music or chords.
However, if you mean both of two things, then I am probably supportive. 1) Describing in lay terms the musical elements that make it "Team Fortress 2" (with necessary credentials to make such analysis) and 2) discuss the genres, franchises, and/or artist referenced by each piece. If it was done with academic quality, but with lay readability and not much technical detail, and not Trivia, that I would appreciate and read.
I lack the credentials. There are some (most) pieces that haunt me. The Calm is IMO homage to not just the Spaghetti Western but to w:Ennio Morricone specifically (thinking specific movies even) and then Robots references w:Danny Elfman. Compare Three Days to Live with w:The Taking of Pelham One Two Three (1974 film). I remember something in the soundtrack making me think of w:The Battle of Algiers , maybe it was in Red Bread. The first 40 seconds of Stink Lines I am feeling "I’ve seen that movie." (this first 20 sec; Burning Bridges from Kelly’s Heroes.
Ideally, no original research, citing Mike Morasky or article about him would be great!
Forgive me if that is not what you (or others) want. Mikado282 (talk) 19:46, 7 May 2017 (PDT) 20:00, 7 May 2017 (PDT)
OK. Yeah, I have been holding that in for years. Mikado282 (talk) 15:20, 8 May 2017 (PDT)
