Bingo!

And have a look at Wojciech Kilar's music to Dracula. :eng:

Just to let you know, I'm delaying a revision a bit because I'm studying some orchestration. :-)
And waiting West's Verb... :-p

Here you can listen in streaming:

This post means that I arrived at the point that:
a- I'm completely satisfied for the musical part of the composition
b- I can't thinker it any more without making it sound worse

Cool. I committed it, and added a few more id tags which were missing but seem to be used in the other music tracks. I'll start wiring it in some scenarios (and the default playlist too, I suppose) a bit later.

I just listened to it for the first time, and I loved it up until the end. Then it just...fell off. Do you want the piece to be able to loop, and that's why you left off a definitive ending? I guess it's just my personal taste, but I was left wanting a more forceful ending as the piece left my ears.

Otherwise, fantastic!

I agree with Jozrael. It ends rather abruptly, but sounds very good before that.

Thank you!
The reason it ends this way is that usually it would not be the last music played in a scenario, but after it another music starts, and perhaps also another etc...
A definitive ending could give a false idea of..."end" :) while there is another music waiting to play.
The real end is anyway given by the new victory and defeat musics.
