Makes for much Better Experience

Reviewed By: Vanya on 30 Jul 2020

First off, thank you for making this Evgeny!

I made a suggestion on the forums for something like this a while back, so I’m pleasantly surprised to see it get done.

I really hate the noise they were trying to pass off as music in this game, so this hack at least makes that aspect of the game bearable.

It is a bit jarring to hear the exact same music as 1943 in 1942, but beggars can’t be choosers, right?

Regardless this is a big step for making a better 1942. Now it just needs some custom tunes, graphics overhaul, and a shield system. :P
