Back when I had like one song, "No Phone" by Cake was endlessly looping in the background as I played A3. Now whenever I hear it I think of killing slimes.

I like listening to Les Mis while playing Avernum. Not sure why.

However, Riverdance is the only choice for Nethergate. :)

Um... thanks. I guess.

Really, I maintain that most music can easily be adapted to dungeon-crawling. In fact, I imagine that some fast techno could even make Undead Valley more interesting...

There are some things that even techno cannot do. :P

Good enough techno that only plays while you play Undead Valley could be an incentive, I suppose, but that would have to be some very impressive techno.

—Alorael, who might do it for some especially good Domenico Scarlatti. Not that Scarlatti is especially suited to dungeon crawls, mind you.

I listen to the Exile background music, converted into MP3s.
And... about 1,000 other songs that could fit into my pocket. :)

Yep, I have a few songs from Fellowship that I listen to. Six minutes long, so sometimes I skip them by if I want a quicker beat.

I play music with games that don't require much concentration, like World of Warcraft. Spiderweb games, however, have a lot of dialogue and story that you need to pay attention to, and I don't like to listen to music when reading for some reason.

Ah, but it's so easy to forget that you're reading when it's a song that you really like, or one with really prominent lyrics. I've found that it's not very annoying when playing Avernum, though...

Listening to comedy, though... that's another story. That makes it really difficult to focus on the giant cockroaches without laughing. And it's even worse when you're trying to code stuff in BoA.

Oddly enough, I enjoy music when I'm coding, but need absolute silence when debugging. Therefore, unless I'm doing something so easy I can get it right on the first try, I don't listen to music.

Speaking of which, is there a version of the BoA 3D Editor that has no sounds? It'd be nice to listen to music during town design.

Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place. Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it.

I've been asking this for months now, and I've been told there is a version out there with no sounds.

I can't for the life of me find it though.

I play music every time I play Avernum.

I usually play Castlevania: Curse of Darkness now. You'd be surprised how much some of the songs fit the gloomy mood of Avernum (A1 at least).

These guys. My mother gave me an anthology of their muzak for christmas, and it went straight into iTunes to be played in the background of my Avernum playing.

EDIT: Wow, am I bad at URL tags...

If you enjoy Iron Maiden you should listen to Primal Fear. I actually like them more and the vocals are essentially the same. They have some damn good songs such as Tears Of Rage.
