List of missing tracks.

Stellar Shadows (Was not in the original jukebox, but a login screen track, added later to jukebox ca 2006-2007)
Below the Asteroids
Surplus of Rare Artifacts
Green Nebula
Merchants, Looters and Ghosts
Eve of Battle
I Saw Your Ship
Theme Of The Universe
Rose of Victory
Smoke From Down Below
All Which Was Lost Has Now been Regained
It Ends Here
Shifting The Balance Of Power
Theme From Jita

They aren't missing from the game, but play only in heavily populated areas.

We are thinking of adding (yet another) menu option just to play the old jukebox songs no matter where you are located or what is happening in the game. How does that sound to you all ?


Quote from topic: Please reinstate missing music tracks

I don't know about you guys, but I'll take what I can get.

For the love of sanity, do not do this. We have more control just listening to the music we want in an mp3 player. And if you use the right one, it is unlikely that it is using more resources than the old jukebox was.

It even already allows for what seems to be the most requested two features, you can pick whatever track(s) you want, and there isn't any need for a deadspace / complex music override.

I'm not against the feature, but I am against using time on this when you could be adding other customization options to the ui. Restoring user color options for themes or Give us the ability to edit / change the neocom icons, to name two that I am hearing quite a few of complaints about in only a few days back.

That's not possible. The in-game jukebox was able to be less resource-intensive than any out of game mp3 player can possibly be, simply by virtue of being a part of the running process and taking advantage of music that was then and still is loaded into your EVE process.

Making a new jukebox from scratch is easy, and it would spare a lot of folks a lot of processing power, which is good for those of us with lower-end systems who have difficulty running music in the background, and even more difficulty minimizing the game every now and then.

Eve without the Jukebox... like a damn tree without leaves. I may sound a little annoyed and thats because ive just had a go at this soundcloud junk and i absoloutly hate it!

Bring back the Jukebox guys please for christs sake. Or at least allow players to choose if they want to listen to the in game jukebox or soundcloud!Sad
