Rock music



  • I was in the sewers of Cademia trying to open the secrect door that leads to the Cloak of Herakles. As I was trying all possible combinations of notes the Cythera tune started up but louder than I normally have the music set and with a bit of a rock beat and a few new instruments. I presumed that it had something to do with the notes I was playing on the lyre. After a while it stopped and I haven't heard it again.

    (I did open the secret door in case anyone is wondering and the music wasn't related to that tune)

    Has anyone else experienced this? Can anyone explain it to me and whether there is a way of making it happen deliberately?

    Thanks

  • I've never heard of it either.

  • Hmm...

    I went back down to the sewers and repeated the things I did before (mostly - I wasn't exepecting this so didn't remember everything) and nothing exceptional happened.

    Is there anyway of finding out all the music that is stored in Cythera? As its done with Quicktime I would imagine it wouldn't be as easy as looking for the "snd" resource. I have noticed some people have posted the music from Cythera - is that complete? (I am only knowledgeable enough about these things to use the jargon coherently - not necessarily to do anything about it)

    Finally, if you all look at me and say "what you bin smokin'?" I will aver to your greater experience.

  • Unfortunately, long musical pieces like the one you heard are not simply stored in an snd resource in resedit - believe me, I've looked for the music of Cythera. Music that was posted was either recorded from speakers, or a repost of music that was available as a preview before Cythera was released.

    There was either a proprietary music system for Cythera, or it used Quicktime Musical Instruments. Either way, it would be difficult to recover or identify any music from the game.

  • Plus, it's encrypted. Susposedly, anyway.

  • Hey, does anyone know how to get the lyre code 4 the sewers? Also, where's democdocus?

    I'm a newbie, i don't have a signature.



  • I got the impression that the code isn't in the game and you're expected to strum random cords until you find it, then memorize it ^_^ And Demo's a traveler, but it is possible to track him down.



  • I always hated the lyre music thing because it wasn't on any site. I eventually dug it up in the old forum posts and wrote it down.



  • I remember using the lyre and instruments when running Cythera in Classic and the sound getting messed up.

    Not true – There's a book or scroll (might be in Land King Hall, or possibly in a desk somewhere) which talks about some hero dude who was last seen in Cademia with a lyre saying that "the key to opening is (code)." Although I have recently restarted the game and have not got up to the sewer stage yet, it seems pretty likely that the combination would work.

    EDIT: I have since found that the combination given is in fact wrong. My mistake.
