    I recently rediscovered the joy of the ogg player in ut2k4 and gave it a shot, only to find my playing getting better because I chose music that got me pumped. I need to convert more VNV Nation songs to ogg now! :)

    My current playlist:

    VNV Nation - Fearless
    VNV Nation - Honour
    VNV Nation - Honour 2003

    More to be added.

    So what's your UT2k4 playlist?

    When I used to play with music, Amon Tobin & Bjork were frequent additions.

    My preference is Tiny Tim's "Tiptoe Through the Tulips"

    .....that, or nothing at all.

    No music for me unless I'm just messing around trick jumping or something. Occasionally I'll keep Winamp open in the background to listen to some metalcore stuff, but otherwise music is just a distraction.

    Yeah, it plays normal MP3's. The file add thing is a nightmare to use if your songs are in multiple directories though.
    (For the record, I don't even remember what I listen to, heh)

    Dird is try to be pro now. All he does is challenge people to 1v1s on various IRC channels. You can't listen to music and 1v1 at the same time. ;)

    Hmmm... the built-in player, called Stream can play Ogg and MP3, supports tags for both formats, including ID3v2 for MP3. Adding files is very simple, since you can select multiple files, just like in windows explorer by holding ctrl or shift. Also, you can create the list in winamp, save it as m3u and select the m3u in Stream player. Aside from this it has a couple of useful console commands like:
    NextSong
    PrevSong
    PauseSong
    StopSong
    SetMusicVolume (value from 0 to 1)


    If you want UT to mention the name of the track it started playing, go to UT2004.ini, find [Engine.StreamInteraction] section or add one, if it doesn't exist and add a line "bDisplayTrackChanges=true" under it.

    As for my current playlist, it's either some old jazz track of the 1910-20 years called "Oh Mama", by Ines orchestra or the "Festivo" track from Takeshi Kitano's Zatoichi OST (the one that is very end of the film). Festivo is very good for DM matches, cause it has a very nice rythm.

    I think currently I have some Jetrho Tull on the playlist, but I normally leave Winamp open with whatever I am listening to.
    EDIT: Which is Camel.

    Anyways, I listen to stuff from the Original UT, and when I'm dicking around I listen to Benny Hill.

    In a serious game no music for me, too distracting. In a fun game I usually have a stereo playing in the background.
    Yeh he broadcasted crappy music, maybe he wasn't listening to it himself.
