View Full Version : Picking an Audiosurf TF2Maps-song
02-23-2008, 06:15 AM
I've noticed several members are playing Audiosurf (me including), so it might be nice to have one or several TF2Maps-song(s) to compete eachother.
I've run a search on my mp3 dir on "build", "map" and "create":
Sarah McLachlan - Building a mystery
Fatboy Slim - Build it up - tear it down
Muse - Map of the Problematiqué
Queen - Is this the world we created
Not the best results for Audiosurf...
Anyone better suggestions?
EDIT: Although Fatboy Slim's song isn't his best one, it does produce a nice (mostly) downhill ride...

Add me in audiosurf friends, "Doran" :)
Aye I also, I am 'Youme'
I just played 'Genesis' by VNV-Nation on ninja mono - damn thats intense!

I like the game but... dunno its getting boring and how the hell do those guys get all those points i never miss a block and they get 10x better scores :/
they do a different mode, and its not about getting ALL the blocks, its about getting the RIGHT blocks
I like mono best, you get 25% bonus for a clean finish as well as a 30% bonus for not hitting a single grey.
you SO need the song "Maps" by the "yeah yeah yeahs". Sad i can can sing that song so well in rock band and Im a dude....
"They dont love you like I lovvveee yoouuuuu!"

A colleague suggested a - to me unknown - song of the Counting Crows, Perfect Blue Building.
Good title, too bad it is a slow, slow... ballad... slow...

LOL, surfing Rick Astley :)
And it is not a bad ride either. But surfing on elite (ninja mono is my fav) is almost every song okay.
Try O.T. Quartet's Hold that sucker down. Old house classic with a downhill ride.
For TF2Mappers songs: Peter Gabriel - Sledge Hammer

So, do you think Audiosurf is worth the $10? I was not really sure so I have held out. Also, I heard it came with the Orangebox sound track, can you listen to that seperate from the game?

The Orangebox Soundtrack is just a folder in the Audiosurf dir. All mp3's so, copy and play!
The game, for me it was worth the $10. Its a nice game to play for 10-15 minutes, to fill some time-gaps in the day planning or just venting off some steam.
I am a bit disappointed though in the rate they fix bugs...
In todays update 6 things updated, but looking closely reveals they just fixed only 2(!!) bugs. And those are not my reported bug about not being able to play mp3's from a different PC on the LAN (although there is the workaround by mapping that share to a network drive).

cool. Its worth it for me just to get the Orange box soundtrack, not that I had not already acquired "Still Alive" but now its legit :)

I think I found THE song: MC Hammer - Can't touch this
Stop! Hammer Time!
Only thing is, I don't have it yet as mp3, so I don't know if it is a nice surf

I played some godsmack songs, and if you like godsmack, they were pretty fun.

I play lots of remixes from OCRemix.org, and some of those are pretty intense. I had one electronica mix from Sonic 2 called "Chemical Juice" that had 374 traffic congestion. Some of the rock mixes from various games are really good too.
Feel free to add "apex_" as a friend. I'd be happy to give remix recommendations to you :)

A couple songs I think are the most fitting mapper theme songs:
- Harder Better Faster Stronger by Daft Punk... we're always working harder to make our maps better and faster and... something, stronger creativity? :D
- The Shaping of the World from the World of Warcraft soundtrack. The title is obvious, and it sounds very epic like it could be set to a video of planetary terraforming :P

Has anyone tried any dragonforce songs with this? Im curious how they would play.

I have tried a few (I only have a few...) and they can be pretty crazy.

Hmm, has anyone tried listening to a podcast or someone talking while playing Audiosurf?
I was going to try it with an audio book I had, but the tracks were 40+ minutes and Audiosurf did not like that. I wonder if there is some way to remove the time restriction.
02-29-2008, 10:35 AM
Yeah, I saw some people filing bugs on that issue on the audiosurf forum. There is a certain timelimit audiosurf can handle. No workaround available to my knowledge.
But I stopped reading that forum because the only reaction is: "thanks, we're looking into it".
And then nothing happens, as with the last two updates, no real bugs are solved.
