X-COM APOCALYPSE MUSIC
« on: August 13, 2015, 02:44:37 pm »
It replaces the X-COM EU music whit a selection of music from X-COM Apocalypse track's, "intro" music is from Cydonia's Fall OST.
thinking well, I decided to delete the mod.

Did you ask permission to use Apocalypse music?
Because I wanted to use it too, but it is likely copyrighted.
As you should be aware OpenXcom doesn't include the original game graphics-music, you have to provide them yourself by owning the original game.
I'm a ignorant about this stuff but AFAIK otherwise it would be redistribution of copyrighted content (which requires permission).
Unless the music is re-arranged or somehow re-made, I think.

Original composer John Broomhall has a twitter account. Maybe asking him? Maybe he has old unreleased music for UFO/Apocalypse that he could donate to the cause?

You have right! Anyway there are a lot of ufo eu/tftd soundtraks as mods and no legal actions are viewed for now
AFAIK for those mods the authors re-made the songs from scratch (to be similar sounding to the old ones, but still completely self-made).

It is unlikely that something will happen, but I'd still avoid straight re-distribution of copyrighted content. Especially now that the X-Com brand is not "dead" anymore, and also the upcoming PC-only sequel (clearly inspired by Apocalypse too).

Maybe someone more knowledgeable about this stuff could clarify.

@Angelus: Can you send me a PM too? I own the game, just too lazy to make a mod myself...
