I notice that for me, the game seems to get "stuck in a rut", and plays the same 5 or 6 music selections over and over. I am not sure if it was my computer (which recently decided to die), or my game, or me.

Over there! Over there, Tell the French and the English over there! That the Yanks are coming, the Yanks are coming.... etc..... I have heard that 3 or 4 times. heh heh. And in my AAR they really are coming over there!! Next turn.

I can't say I reproduce the issue. Are you sure this is not because some musics are close to others in their composition? Shifting to a new music every 10 seconds, I got a very large sample of 30+ songs during my test.
Hofstadter's Law: "It always takes longer than you expect, even when you take into account Hofstadter's law."
The music is good, but I get a bit tired of it already. Past 1914 it is much too happy and cheerful, and the marches are kind of embarassingly naive. In the long run I want to hear something ominous and dark, or just ambient WW1 battlefield sounds. Anybody in for a music mod?
You can mod them in the folder to have even more titles, without an external player.

I get only a few songs, but I seem to get this with most AGEOD games - e.g. just tried NCP and get about 2 but I see in the file list there should be over 20. Is this something in my PC? But then I've noticed it on several different PCs over the years.
Well continuing, my Espana just plays Main Theme and SCW_003 with occasionally SCW_004
But searching the forum while listening to repetitive music I found this from 2011:
Pocus: "We know of this issue... the random pick of a song, is for a reason unknown to us, weird... It should come from the random number generator, itself derived from Windows O/S, but ... yeah, weird sequencing. This bother me too, honestly."
When you say the RNG has been changed is that an AGEOD change or a Microsoft change?
What I'm finding strange is that music variation works on some games not on others.
Come to think of it I had the issue too with WW1G.
If it were only on one PC I would think it something wrong in my settings, but as you can see others have it too. It's not quite the end of the world, it just seems annoying that someone made a wide selection of music and yet some of us only get a narrow selection.
I'll go and play some non AGEOD games for a bit and see if there's a similar issue.
