[Proposal] The jukebox is gone? We want it back!

I liked the jukebox. I don't run multiple eve clients while I do run full screen. As such it was nice and handy. I also recommended to new people that they download the E-Uni class recordings into a custom play list so they could learn about the game while playing.

I also liked the ability to simply "advance" when not in the mood for a given tune or pause/stop it if something important came up - such as voice comes issues or the like.

I do miss it.

That said, if it's extra work keeping it up to date and if it causes issues in other areas - leave it gone.

The more focus on game mechanics and fixing the UI - the happier I'll be. If it is a difficult part to keep going, I'd much prefer it gone than having it potentially prevent other fixes from coming out.

I just don't know how much extra work was involved.

Again, if it's not a major problem to keep it around, please do restore it. If so, I can live without it but it is missed.

I'm missing the jukebox a lot too.. I'm a guy that actually likes in-game music a lot and I loved to switch sometimes to my fav "Below the Asteroids" song... It made me go pownage on big battles. and kept me company for when I locked myself in a WH.

I also liked the quick ability to pause it for voice conversations or when it was unwanted

So please give it back if it is not a to big problem... I saw some great idee's here already about making it a option

I want it back. Can not imagine any reason why it has been removed.
It is like devs do not play or care this game anymore so they better keep their hans off.

It almost really flipped me to just dowloand the music and not to sub this game anymore.

All the 'location aware' system seems to do is cut the playlist from 60 tunes to about 5. Virtually all the music in eve, with the exception of the instrumental heavy metal that used to play when going into a deadspace plex, is gentle ambient music that could be listened to in any situation.

Please bring back the jukebox. I'm not impressed at all by the new system.

So uh, can we have the jukebox back already? The new music is dull.

If you want your jutebox, then use an external media player.

+/- 0 to this request. First thing I did after launching EVE for the very first time was turn the music OFF.

So, you're a bounty hunter. No, that ain't it at all. Then what are you? I'm a bounty hunter.

I have played EVE for almost 5 years (June 27 2007) And I for one enjoyed the music and have many memories of PvP and PvE with some of the tunes on it. I also had some of my own on there. All in all why was it removed? it wasn't hurting anyone or anything. For some myself included it held fond times of the good ol' days


Bring it back really. You added a dumdarse spin counter for the station spinners now where's the jukebox.

I agree with what he said, Please bring the J something box back now.

Location music sounds like a great idea, but all I do is mine.... so I only hear one song... and that song does not work well with my narcoleptic tendancies. Use Alt+Tab everyone keeps telling me, yes yes I know, but how about just put back the truely awesome feature that was one of the main reasons I fell in love with this game? a built in music player that I can use my own custom mp3s! EVERY GAME SHOULD HAVE THIS OPTION. Previous games that let you do something similar never really got it right, Eve Online was the first one that worked exactly the way I needed it to. It was freaking awesome and you know it, please put it back.

Liked being able to to add my own tracks. Small gang PvP to Pantera's Vulgar Display of Power was -da ****- and now it's gone. Oh sure, I could alt-tab away to some other means to play it, but that's when something juicy comes through the gate and I'm three seconds the least I miss a spot on the Killmail, at the most I'm halfway to blown up.

This is like pulling ABC sites from w-space. Nobody shoots at a statue or anything, you just change it because ???.
Don't you have enough real work to do without messing with the sweet, sweet minutiae? What did the jukebox ever do to you?

A bit of advice for CCP.

I put my ISK in the Jukebox and the whole thing disappeared .


OH -The Clonemanity!

Until you have a real physics engine so my spaceship does not float like a souped up Camino and gravity in the game the only reason I log in is to look at the pretty colours and listen to the juke.
