HiFi Sound FX

    HiFi Sound FX 1.5r2 @ HiFi Warfare
      Small update for hifilovers

    Here we go with not one but two addons..I'll try to give a brief & crappy description of each for you.
      Hifi 1.5:
        Ok, this is the best elements taken from the last release of hifi, reworked, to sound better and for the rest, brandspanking new sounds that i've worked long & hard to get them consistent with the other sounds for a complete combat package.
      Hifi Warfare:
        This came from an idea whilst playing on a friends server running the warfare gamemode. I decided to make some changes to 1.5 in order to make feel more infantry based. some of the changes I made where as follows:
          - Different (but consistent) sounds for each mode of fire, ie; semi/burst/auto for all smallarms with available firemodes.
          - Lots of time went into capturing R/L explosions & smallarms to make this as realistic & diverse sounding as possible whilst not forgetting this is a GAME.
          - Bullethits, Manhits, armourhits have also been changed to enhance the warfare gamemode.
          - Also included is a config which adds Combat ambience ontop of the usual ambient sound loops giving the feeling of distant combat (for low spec machines
      HiFi WarfareACE:
        This is exactly the same as hifi warfare except you get some Ambient Combat Enviromental sounds instead of just birds tweeting and stuff.
    Hifi Warfare does borrow sounds from Hifi 1.5, bulletcracks, vehicals an other misc sounds. All the sounds it 'shares' are either new to both addons or have been reworked to accommodate both in terms of consistency.

Pick a config from the config folder, place the config & bisign inside the same folder as the hifi_sounds.pbo then place HIFIFX folder in your arma directory, modify your shortcut accordingly.
"C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA\arma.exe" -nosplash -maxmem 512 -mod=HIFIFX
If you do not know how to use mod folders have a loom in our FAQ.

Remember, only use one config at a time, using more than one will result in possible errors.

So, in your HifiFX addon folder you should have:
    and one config file:
Included .pbo files:

This is a signed addon.
The server key for server admins is included in this download.


Video by supershooter of an older version:

Please understand, if you want to use my work within another addon/edit my sounds for repackaging or wish to add my sounds together with others sound addons via config or .wss file swapping, ask me first...its morally the right thing to do as well as legally
