Hello there all,

I've recently finished work on a sound addon I created using a config file from the excellent FROMZ sound mod a template. Using this config I have created an entire batch of new and varied sounds for all the following.

Contents

All:
Small Arms
Crew Mounted Arms
Vehical Mounted Arms
Explosions
Sonic Cracks
Projectile Hits
Enviromental FX
Misc small FX changes

V1.2 Fix/Update

-Altered all small arms volume, up afew db
-Reworked AK74u sound alittle, bit more poke
-Reworked M16 Series of weapons, totally new sound
-Tweaked FFAR Rockets alittle should work firing salvos better
-Reworked M2
-Minor rework of G36 Series
-MP5SD Redone, hope you like it
-M4SD Redone, again hope you like it
-M9SD,MakerovSD & Ak74uSD all reworked, volume increased
-UI sounds changed, more practical, smaller file size ;)
-C4 Plant sound improved
-Possible smaller fixes I can't remember :$
-Definate Bikey issue fixed (Thankyou Jman!)


V1.1 Fix/Update

-Hand grenade throw sound reworked. should work better with the animation.
-m4 volume notched up alittle
-Hand grenade Explosions reworked (added some bass frequencies to the boom sound and falling debris to the trailoff sound)
-M203 & GP 25 explosion sounds reworked (added more variation in sounds, watched some footage on Youtube, noticed variation in the sound over range was quite different so tried to copy it. the problem I beleive is that the 8 samples designated for this fire off randomly, so you could be firing at close range and here an explosion sound that would be virtually 200-300 metres away...Guess we'll have to see, please comment on this as I'm also considering building 1 base sound and then modeling the other 7 sounds around that, just for consistancy.
-MP5 volume notched up alittle
-Javelin sorted ! (nasty phasing sound busted)
-Bikey thingy fixed this shall be fixed by jman2704 soon

Hi Mark XIII :welcome to Armaholic.


Thanks for releasing your sound mod in our forums. I have frontpaged the release and added it to our download section. You can find the download page here:
http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=3051


BTW, just a note.
I saw you added the bikey to the download but you haven't added the sign file.
You need both of them.
The bikey file (your personal one) to add to servers so they can accept this addon, as well as the xxx.sign.pbo so clients can add the sign file to their mod folder.

Hi all,

I've known Mark XIII for years and he has been interested in sound editing/engineering for quite a while now. He had asked me for input and advice on what he'd been producing and I've been involved on this project only for the past few days.

I dont have a military background nor have I fired a rifle, But I know what sounds I like. So my input has been quite simple on my part.

The bullet that just missed you and hit the wall behind you should have you jumping out of your skin (as I did on more than one occasion!). The environment, the enemy firing at you from close to 500m out and whatever you have in you hands ( rifle/chopper/tank/fighter jet etc )should sound deadly, but also have its own destinct sound and sound good. I've garbled on long enough, download it and enjoy! Please, all comment/suggestions/stonings are very welcome. Mark XIII has done an awesome job so far and the best is yet to come.

Foxhound -hmmm. I have the privatekey my appologies for misplacing it, I don't have a xxx.sign.pbo though, thought I did but no, how do I make one again...?


Socom- I'd love to release a vid, but my machine is far from up to it. if someone wants to make one for me....Cheers!


Update!
Have solved the Bikey issue, will upload new version tomorrow afternoon. If I have time I shall also look at implementing some of the smaller changes suggested across the forums (Javelin trail off sound phasing etc.). Thanks for your comments & suggestions, please keep them coming!

Regards

Mark XIII

Heya people.


Sorry for not posting for alittle while, been dealing with an ear infection and trying to optimize my next release.

Update!

Started optimising and things have already improved (I can run larger battles without sound loss). I'm hoping further optimisation will help people with older machines (such as myself!) as the the main issue with my addon seems to be soundloss during battles. (My samples are pretty darn big). but for this next release I'm really gonna trim the fat..

Anyways I'll keep you guys posted with the progress I make. Looking at maybe releasing 1.3 over the this weekend, I'd love to say I've go the G36 recoil thing fixed, I have yet to figure it out but zGuba posted an idea (which I'll try tonight).

Regards

Mark XIII

Excellent work Mark :thumb
Good to see your ear infection is healed already (or at least I assume seeing you release this, if not....well I hope it gets better soon ;) ).

I have frontpaged the new release on the homepage, the download page has been updated as well:
http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=3051

I hope I can try this new version tonight but I am not sure since I have been sick last few days.

Ok guys I wasn't happy with some aspects of 1.3 and since its release I've had some great feedback about it.. Anyways I decided to make an update before I release 1.4, just to sort out some stuff that really needed fixing for the sake of consistency...

taken from the readme...

-Optimised afew more files
-Reworked A10/AV8/KA50/AH1Z/UH60/AH6 Engine sounds again (sorry about 1.3, guess I was rushing)
-Remade A10/AV8 Burst Fire sounds, sounds now match amount off ammo used if burst fire is used..ie; A10=40 round half second burst, Av8=5 round burst.
-Remade All high ROF samples and minugun samples (I'm now alot happier with them myself, check em out)
-Reworked humvee, vulcan, m113, stryker and shilka engine sounds ( upped the pitch and the rpm's alittle hopefully better for you guys this time!)
-Made volume adjustments to all smallarms reload sounds (bout 3db!)
Theres bound to be afew things I've put in and missed out, just tried to follow what people had said so far across the forums....


Ok guys you can get it here
