    Tribes 2 Soundtrack

    Submitted by: Rampage @ 10:58 AM | Sunday, March 11, 2001 | (url: )

    Tim Clarke, composer of most of the music involved with Tribes 2, sent these facts in regarding the work he did with T2:

    Hi! Since there has been so much confusion and misinformation surrounding
    the Tribes 2 soundtrack, I thought that I'd introduce myself and let you in
    on the facts about the soundtrack:

    --My name is Tim Clarke, and my company is Score! Music & Sound Design, Inc.

    --I've been involved in the Tribes 2 project since the beginning, and have
    composed all of the in-game music. I also have written music for most of
    the teaser videos, game intro, and other marketing videos.

    --The music has been met with tremendous enthusiasm, and will soon be
    available for sale as an audio CD from the Tribes 2 website. It is
    available also from Best Buy, as part of a pre-sale incentive.

    --The music of Motley Crue is not a part of Tribes 2. The Crue has had
    nothing to do with this game, despite early press releases. I don't know
    any of the particulars, other than it just didn't work out.

    --I worked most closely with Dave Georgeson (producer) and Blake Hutchins
    (writer) during the creation of the soundtrack.

    --The music is a mixture of industrial metal, electronica, ambient, and
    ethnic. A live drummer and guitarist were used on all tracks, in addition
    to lots of synths and processed samples. The music is quite evocative, and
    each track was composed for a specific Tribes 2 world.

    The Vote Goes To

    Submitted by: Imposter @ 10:54 PM | Friday, March 9, 2001 | (url: )

    After the tie earlier today, Team Bloodeagle revoted for either Drshoktar or Bacardi to get kicked off the Tribal Survivor game. Guess what? They tied again! So it came down to a duel, best of 5.

    Bacardi got spanked, and is now eliminated from Tribal Survivor!

    The two teams will now merge into the new Team Starwolf, who you can talk to in #starwolf. The next clue will be posted tomorrow, and the next immunity challenge will be Sunday at 10pm est. Immunity is now open for individuals to compete for, so if a person doesn't show they can't win immunity.

    We will also be bringing your our first Tribes 2 match broadcast, as the meta testers have been kind enough to arrange a scrimmage, and allow us on the field to bring you all the action.

    The show starts up at 9:00 pm est (6:00 pm pst) and will go late.

    So for all things Tribes 2 join us tonight, on the Tribes Shoutcast Network. Check the website for connection information, and join us in #tsn on for that extra interaction.

    The Duke of URL has kicked up a review of the Tribes 2 Linux port. Looks like those of you who have been wanting to run a server or play Tribes 2 on Linux are in luck, as the port looks just as swank as the Windows version.
