Hi! I'm Monkey Guy... A mighty pirate... err... no, sorry :D This is my first post in Grim Fandango forums, but I read you every day ;) I'm a spanish fan of Grim (sorry for my bad english :p).
Well, I finish it again and in the credits the game show some themes of the game and there was one that was: "Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe Theme by Michael Land" :eek:. I know that SWOTL is a simulator game of LucasArts, but... Which is the theme of the SWOTL? And... Where is the theme of the SWOTL in Grim Fandango? :(
Que la Fuerza os acompaņe ;)

im not sure where it appears in the game, perhaps it's an easter egg.

I don't even know what you are talking about. What is SWOTL?

SWOTL = Secret Weapons of the luftwaffe.
SWOTL is a game of LucasArts. For more info click here ;):

In the final credits of Grim Fandango there are a few names of themes of the game (Compaņeros, etc) and a theme is:
"Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe Theme by Michael Land".
Michael Land is a compositor of music of LucasArts (he worked on Monkey Island series). So the SWOTL theme is in anywhere of Grim Fandango (possibly a reference). I'm trying find the theme in the game, but I don't know how the theme is :(

You can download it heaer, sorry for the stuttering, maybe it was cuased by recording while "playin" .

It definitely sounds familiar... perhaps it was mixed into one of the other tracks?

Oh! That sounds so familiar! I can't put my finger on where I've heard it though. Argh!

Wow, good work, Shallim. This will help me :) I'll search this theme in the OST of Grim Fandango. Thanks.

Its Sallim, of Salvador Limones =) hihi I know I know..^^

I searched all over..but could find anything like this with scumrev..

just some weird dialogs of hector in file year 4 or like this...


Maybe there is a soundfile in the cutscene , I dont know..but it seems like its just mixed in a backgroud song..very hard to identify..

or the got inspirated by the theme.. who know ._l

I think I've got it...

According to GF's Trivia section (http://www.mobygames.com/game/trivia/gameId,201/) on Mobygames, the tune plays in the scene with the zeppelin in Year 2. I never would have guessed.

Wow, it is as well! It's very obviously the beginning of that mp3 if you listen carefully. That's brilliant - and it makes sense to play there too.

I recorded that too and it is AMAZING!

Never would think of that.
