Sorry to post this here but I actually checked the Exile Series forum and those were empty.

I remember when I first played Exile II, it actually had music, but in the later versions, and the adaptation to Avernum II didn't have it any more. I really did like the music, and I'm kinda wondering why it was removed.. A bug maybe? I never had a problem with it personally.

I believe it was removed because Jeff likes to pick his own music when he plays games.
If you would like, I can e-mail you the mp3 and you can listen to it whenever you want.

Cool I will download the A3 dungeon music, it's quite good.

The exile music is very funny it remembers me to the old Age of Empires music...Or prehistorik 2...

The A3 intro music is there, and no Spiderweb game besides E2 had any music besides an intro.

—Alorael, who still thinks Nethergate and A2 win the music contest. If sidhe and vahnatai got into a fight, who would win?

Exile 1 does too. Fugue in G minor

I love that piece of music. I once tried to get it down on paper for a string quartet by listening to the music. At a certain point I stopped, as it was getting a bit boring...

To be honest, I like all Spiderweb music except for Geneforge 1 and 3, and Avernum 4.

The only Spiderweb intros I don't like are the ones to Blades of Avernum and Avernum 3. Geneforge I is actually my favorite opening.

I also like how the intro music in Geneforge III and IV matches up.

You mean how the shaper is bursting through that entrance with a pair of creation ready for an epic battle accompanied by lighthearted pipes and drums? I don't get it. I similarly don't get why people think piano and electric guitar is appropraite for Avernum 2. Someone explain?

The Geneforge 2 opening screen and music matched perfectly, however. And they set the mood for an epic game as well.

Everything is appropriate with an electric guitar. But never vice versa.

No, I'm talking about how the intro music to Geneforge 3 and the intro music to Geneforge 4 are different parts of the same song. They go together.

I agree that the pictures and music don't usually complement each other though. Geneforge 2 and Nethergate did the best job of that.

As for Geneforge 1 and 3, even though the pictures don't match up, I think the music is very Geneforge-esque. It's probably the percussion.

Considering that the people in front of the shaper are already dead, I'd say it wasn't about an epic battle.

I tried to think of something witty to put here.

Needless to say, I failed.

It might be easier to transcribe if you started with the organ score. Or you could accept that the piece works as a string duet.

—Alorael, who now wonders how exactly Tyran recorded all those intros. They sound almost like they were recorded from the computer's speakers.

I used ResHack to extract the WAV files from the Windows applications and used dbPowerAMP to convert them to MP3.

That was not my point. I wanted to write it down by listening. I like these things being hard.

By the way, How can't you like the Avernum 1 and 2 intro pieces? I think they are magnificent, partly because they sound despressing to me.

Who has stated a dislike of the A1 and A2 intros? I'm indifferent to A1's, but I think A2's is my second favorite after Nethergate's.

—Alorael, who thinks it goes especially well with Dark Waters. And now he detects a trend in his A2 appreciation and possibly a reason that he's willing to forgive ZKR many of its flaws.

Well, the theme to Exile II was the only one that really stuck out to me..

You know, I remember back when I first started playing Exile III, it just kind of felt awesome to see the surface for the first time..

Probably because most Spiderweb fans haven't been outdoors in decades either
