View Full Version : Thumping sound after 4.08

Hey guys,
I can't seem to figure out why some of the planes have a thumping/beating sound to them, sound like it from the engine. It's slight, but very anoying. help anyone?

yes when i have full throttle on the p38 it has a repetitive thumping after the patch

It seems to me that they've equalised the sound a bit, emphasising the middle frequencies to give a fuller sound. I have always heard those beating sounds though, I think it's every time the recording loops to the start again, after about a second or so. They can just be heard more clearly now.

My opinion. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I get it from time to time, but not lately. I never could figure out how to get rid of it; sometimes it just kind of went away.

And I thought I was going crazy... well, there still isn't any proof I'm not, but the fact someone else is hearing these noises is comforting. I keep thinking someone is calling my cellphone in the other room or knocking on my front door to the point that even though I'm sure it is the game, I still pause on occasion and **** my head to one side holding an ear up doing my best "a dog that was just shown a card trick" impersonation.

the engine sounds are looped, thats where the thump is coming from.

Ah! I thought it was just my imagination! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

Our engine sounds are not recorded at all; they are synthesized by a sound engine. Whether they are "looped" I don't know.

However, this problem popped up a while back (about 3 years ago if memory serves) for some people and at the time, I was able to get rid of the "thumping" effect by installing the Kx Project drivers. (http://kxproject.lugosoft.com/)

I haven't noticed the "return of the thump" with 4.08 but then I haven't played much yet either. I'm in the office now so I can't test it out.

this sound has been around since the very first game. the engine sounds are authentic but they are looped.
