I'm having a problem with the machine gun and cannon sounds being to Bass sounding while in the cockpit. The sounds from the outside views are fine. Anyone else notice this?

I can't seem to fix it. My speaker are littorally shaking off my desk when I fire my guns. Turning down the volume helps but then I can't hear anything else.

Any ideas on how I can fix this?

Soundcard?

If its a Creative card...some drivers do it, some others don't. I had problems with this with a original Audigy card. There used to be a Disable EAX effects setting somewhere...I have a nVidia Soundstorm onboard system now so I don't know what things are like these days.

Opps forgot the soundcard. It's an Audigy 2 and I've updated the drivers.

I guess I'll go to Creative and see if anymore updates available.

I will try the disable EAX if it's available.

Thats how I like it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif Especially when I'm in a twin engine taxiing on the ground http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Still no success. Tried setting the sound card in setup to Sensura but that didn't help much. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

I even went through the various ingame settings, that didn't help much either. Though if I turned off extentions it wasn't as bad, though all it did was mute te sound some.

What does extentons do anyway? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

It does seem to be aircraft related. The gun sounds of the Mosie are ok, but an A20 or F4U have to much bass sounding. The cannon sounds seem fine, it's the .50 cal causing it, it seems. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

I double checkd with my copy of IL2, and all of the gun sounds are fine.

I wonder if it's possible to replace the sound? I looked in the directories, but can't find any sound files.

Any ideas?

I think this is purposeful to simulate the difference of hearing the guns in open air as opposed to hearing them through the airframe with a high powered engine sitting in your lap.

However, without hearing it, I can't really tell you if what you hear is what I hear.

Sorry for stating the obvious, but most computer speakers have rediculously overboosted subwoofers, especially Logitechs. You might just want to turn the subwoofer down.

What you're hearing is most likely intentional, as Max said. The sounds are a bit goofy at times; this particular effect is supposed to simulate the treble in the gunshots being drowned out by the engine, leaving only the bass noticible. It's supposed to actually sound good on an Audigy 2, but I have no idea. I never really liked the Ma Deuce sounds, personally.

That is a very sensible post.

So, I think we may have it, barring any kind of malfunction on the part of your software or hardware. The boosted bass from in the cockpit + too much bass in your audio set up = muddy cockpit gunfire sounds.

By the way you're describing it, I think there might not be anything wrong with your sound at all. That's just simply how the sound is. The .50s have always had a bassier sample, and if you have your subwoofer turned up the effect will only magnify itself.

I think it will probably stay bassie (is that a word? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif).

The only settings I have for any bass are software, ie: sound card based. The only thing on my woofer is a bass balance knob. That didn't help much. It's not really a bass speaker, just a wood box with a hole, no speaker (Cambridge Soundworks). All my bass comes through my 2 satellite speakers.

All of the gunner sounds sound fine, they don't shake my walls when I fire them like with the main guns. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I found some BOSE computer speakers with a bass speaker in Crutchfields. Might give them a try. Atleast I'll have great sound with my music.

Right now "Burning Bridges" the theme from Kelley's Heroes is palying in the back ground. I wonder if that can be incorporated into the game. Would be so cool.

You have to turn the sound up as high as you can, bass up as high as you can and feel the roar of the .50 cals.

Sure, your head might explode but hey, look at the brightside: you might get on the top ten of the Darwin awards.

I could do that but I think my wife the dogs would object. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

As for the Darwin I'd rather read about them than be one. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif
