Badsight, are you saying that sound will work if we copy the 1.0 sound files from the CD into the IL-2 directory?

This works?

I also wonder - are you saying you copy sound files to 1.1b and this works?

*****************************
Append: HA! Tried the following out with some other planes, and all the sound is messed up with most of the other planes. Don't bother trying this! Sorry folks!
*****************************

Don't get too excited! It does seem to get rid of the 'engine sound dampening' bug in version 1.1b but it introduces at least two others.

What I think he did was to *BACK-UP* the 'FB_sound.SFS' file, then moved 'sound.SFS' from the il2 CD into the FB root folder, and changed the name of it to 'FB_sound.SFS'. Note that these two files are different sizes! The il2 one is 2mb smaller.

Anyway, doing this seems to fix the awful dampening of the engine that occurs in version 1.1b. To try it out do this:
quick mission builder
crimea map
one enemy plane
2000m altitude

You will spawn by the coast, and as soon as ships start to fire (within the first 15 seconds) your engine sound will go very, very quiet if you are affected by this sound bug.

Exit the game and instigate the 'fix' as described above and try the same mission again. This time my engine remained at a high level when ships fired. BUT there were now at least two other bugs:
1/ My cannons made no sound when firing (I was in an La7).
2/ If I changed the throttle, some 'looping' of engine sounds occurred, which sounded crap.

I am not going to use this 'fix' for those two reasons (probably more bugs would emerge after I played a few more missions). If anyone manages to get a decent fix, I would love to know about it.

=======================
Note that I tried what the original poster kinda says he did (which was to copy the original FB_sound.SFS from the cd over the patched version), but it didn't work for me; they are the same version I think (exactly the same size anyway). Instead I experimented with the il2 sound file, and it worked as described above in an La7.
