I agree that the old jukebox option should be brought back. Let us, the players decide how we want the music to play.

Surrender is still your slightly less painful option.

Just a small update.

Today I thought I would bring sound back and just check it out again to be fair.

Every time, every time I jumped a system the music track changed.

I flew 32 jumps in a pod. Every-single-jump I made, I listened to about 15-20 seconds of a song and then it changed again.

That, CCP, really does not showcase the good work you have put into the game. I mean seriously, thats shoddy coding and imlementation of what, in theory, is a good idea.

Please, please change it, its embarrasing as a player. Once again, sound is off.



Did you think of maybe staying in one system and doing something for a little while instead of wapring and jumping as fast as possible to see what the music was actually like?

As was detailed in my first post I tested this a lot on the test server(s) when I found out the changes being made.

My most recent post is an example of how a good idea has been poorly executed by the game designers.

Regardless of how the music sounds when I float around in space in a single system - jumping through multiple systems causes the game to react in a way that is very badly implemented.

+1 for Jukebox.
I don't see any reason for removing it even if CCP think it's bad. Just explain it's a legacy feature that's no longer being worked on/supported...

Why was it removed? For what reason?



There's a dev blog about it somewhere. Basically it was removed because it is a useless feature that you can get the same, and better results from using Media Player/ITunes/etc... And instead of them having to maintain the in game music player with updated GUIs, updated Codecs, and so forth, to make the maintenance of the code easier to work with they removed the jukebox.

Why? Becasue with no built-in music player CCP can wash its hands about involvement in piracy and player enforcement of media rights.

However, all needs can still be met if

CCP would just make EVE sound output compatible with the appropriate generic OS audio mixers so we can overlay or mix with what ever other audio we want (Teamspeak, Win Amp, RealAudio, etc).


No real need for games to pre-empt al audio nowdays ...assuming other software always is courteously behaved and mixer compatible.

[--I started this game a couple of months ago and I've really been enjoying the soundtracks. There's just one problem.. Certain songs get tiresome after a while because they are played too often - you probably know which ones I mean. Every time you enter the station there's that same song.. Anyway, the jukebox made for variety for those who wanted to use it, but now that it's gone there's no choice but either to grow really tired of the same tracks, or to turn the music off. Either way it's not a good thing. Kind of defeats the purpose. So yeah, please bring jukebox back :)--]

Btw, love the new login soundtrack!

Edit: I withdraw my signature as I agree with the developers that time is best spent elsewhere. I prefer using winamp.

Also, the 'external' player argument:

I dont want to go 'out' of the game while playing, it sort of breaks immersion.

Also, have music change when jumping is killing it when you are travelling, it changes the song every 30 seconds..

I've never felt the need to voice my opinion here till now...
bring the audio player back, if you're going to have an ingame browser, have an ingame music player too!

also please add the login themes to the jukebox

Please bring the jukebox back. I like the music in EVE and enjoy the control the Jukebox affords (afforded) me. Alt-tabbing to the browser to change track etc, spoils the immersion. Surely if you can develop and maintain a program like EVE, the built in jukebox must be a piece of cake Big smile

I also miss the jukebox. In addition to EVE's music, I had play lists of my own that I played. And, with the jukebox, I could turn off the music when I wanted without having to turn down the music volume. Now I've had to completely shut it down, so I don't even get to listen to the login music.

Not that I necessarily want to hear the login music, but it was nice to have the option. Now that is gone. Sure, I can use iTunes or any of a number of other music players to listen to music while I play EVE, but I was used to the jukebox. I want it back.

Consider me signed.

Signed - there's no reason to remove Jukebox entirely.

The Dev post detailing why was incredibly childish and insulting. NICKELBACK ISN'T BIG ANYMORE HURR DURR.. Yeah, A+ comedy guys.... I shouldn't have to open a separate media player to listen the music for a game I'm playing. I think maybe you should've given it as an option, let people opt in or out and not just completely remove the entire thing for everyone. If MP3 files are too outdated for Big Boy CCP, maybe release them in a better quality and offer file support for custom files OTHER than MP3 files, like MP4, or whatever the hell.

Not that this entire post wasn't a complete and utter waste of time. The Devs don't give two ***** if we're upset about the Jukebox being removed; all this is just one more bird chirping in a Aviary.

CCP, can you add a Word like Office application while you're at it? Also, some CD/DVD burning software would be good, I don't wanna use an external application.

/sarcasm mode off

Music players freely available on the internet are way better at playing music then EVE's player ever was (not to be rude or anything, just stating that specialized software does the job better). Time of developers is better spent coding and developing something that benefits the gameplay anyway.
