    What happened to the "explore" music?

    Ambient music, save for in battles, has been strangely absent recently. It's made the game feel awfully off.


    Is there any reason for this change?

    +1, noticed recently that for most of the game the music is missing. Game starts off with music (pre-horn), and continues shortly after the horn, but laning phase music (explore) is gone. Battle/ganking music still appears though.

    +1 I thought I was the only one. Glad to know it's not just me.

    It needs to be back in.

    That somehow doesn't seem to feel right. The music is off by default, and you can't change that conventionally - more importantly, it is rather true that it resets itself over and over every time there's an update. I've been hearing the flutes yesterday, but today, when Diretide came out, they were gone - so I had to put the files back in, once again. I assume the same procedure would be required if you ever validate the game cache. It makes sense, when you think about it, it's normal that any changed variables would be set back to the boring defaults whenever there's an update.

    Beats standing around and waiting for an official update, though to be perfectly honest, I'm not seeing it being fixed anytime soon. As far as it goes, I'd o̸̸̡̱̠̘̜̜ͬͨͬu̧͇̞̭̹̫̳̤͒ͯ̂̆̾̌r̢̖̺͍͎͇̯̭̦͛͂̈̒ͥ̊ͭ̐̒ ̛̘̫͂̏ͥ̔ͥ̎̕w̸̥̘̰̰̖̹̖͍̍̀́͜i̴͉͐ͥ̈̂͒̎̆̚͞t̵̨̓̎͆͒̄͊͛҉͎̗̦ ̦͕͔̟ẖ̴̨̗̼͎̭̖̱̓̀̎̽ͫͭ̓͠ͅȇ̶̳̖̯̅́̀̕͡ͅr͆͌̿̄̄̌̊ͥ͏͓̙̪e͑ ̛͔̯̪̻̐̈͜d̵̶̡̤̲̞̻̖̲̏ͩͭ̽̒ͨ̏ͯ͊ ͔̗̭̞̰͋ͬͧ̓̊̓r̳͕̮̜̲̩̉ͥ̕͟ǫ͕͓ͯ͐͟t̛̰̗ͭ̒͞͠t̛͖̳͙̆͠e͒̊̽͟͢ ̻̥͉̺͖͔̮͜n̟͇̲ͣ̎ ̵̛͙̳̲͕̟̮̩̹ͣ̓ͯb̛̫̱̻̠̏̃̐ͫ̾́̾͋͞o̯̺̳̒̐͜d̷̝ͮͧͨ̿̊̆̉͡i̓̉̓ ̶̢̮̿e̸͍̳̝̭̯͇̺̅ͬ̄̎̄̄s̴̨̮̘̭̮̝͚̞͇͒̂͋ͨ́ ̵̨̡̰̰͑͌ͮ̃̽̔ͅw̡̩̬͔̱͆̅̈̄̕i̛̥̝̼͈̲͍̱̓ͫͣ̃͊̒͐l̡̠͍̰ͩ͐̿̈́͊͘ ̼̩̠l̡͖̺̰̗̮̹̤̃͒͋ ̧̭̣̯̼͙̲̬̜̈w̪̬͚̼̗̱ͤ̌̈̿ͧ͐̂̚͜͠î̶̶̯̗͔͗ͫ́t̛̩̼̖̪̖ͬͨ̕nͥ̌ ̝͍̺͚̦̰ͨ̾̿̅ͪ̀̕e̛ͭ̌͂͒ͨͤͬ҉̠̦̩̭͖s̵͈̳̦̯͓̻ͬ̔ͦ͛́ͯ̓s͌ͧͦ͛ͯ͜ ̞̙̺̬͍̻̼ ̡̝̟̭̹̲̃ͥ͡i̫̱̿ͦ̒̓̽͛t̴̬̯͇̪̬̜̞ͮ ̔̃͒͏̘̻̯̭͍̮ͅh̸͕͖̭̘͉ͦ̈͢a͇̠̦̹͇͐ͣ̍p͋̌͏̯̦̘̺̕ͅp̙̓̆̽ͬ͐̕͜͢ ͚̪͓̙ė̶̢̫̟͉̓̆̚ņ̴̗̺͉̫̦̼̉̌̆ͮ́͋̄͝ị͖̲̙͉̱̳̀̌ͨͯ͂͠͠n͉͊̍ ̮̝̟̫g̶̷͉͎̼̞̗̱͍͕̑̈̃̇̿ͭ̏̓͡

    +1 to missing musics

    The fix for the explore music stopped working after yesterday's patch because they removed all the scripts in the script folder. It's a real shame because without the explore music the game becomes more boring. There's really no reason it shouldn't be in the game.

    Ya it's a huge hit to the atmosphere of the game. I hope cyborgmatt comes up with a fix soon.
