RealSound Sound Configuration - F18


This is my sound configuration file for John and Saul's wonderful FA-18 Super hornet pack. I would love for you all to give this a try and let me know what needs changing and what could use buffing/nerfing in terms of sound quality. I hope to add some flyby scripts, which will add a even higher amount of realism to the sound aspect of the aircraft.

Extract into the ArmA 3 Directory, by default this is located in:
32-Bit - C:\Program Files\Steam/Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\
64-Bit - C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam/Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\
After extraction it should look like this:
Steam\Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\@your_mod_folder_name\addons\

You can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder. Your folder setup could than look like for example this:
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name1\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\

When present place the "userconfig" folder into your game install folder, usually:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3".
You may already have "userconfig" folder from other addons and/or mods in which case it is safe to merge the contents from this archive.

You'll also need to add a Launch Parameter to Steam, in order to do so right-click on ArmA 3 Alpha and click Properties and then Set Launch Options. In the window that opens enter in -mod=@your_mod_folder_name
For using multiple mods you would then do so like this:

You can also use -nosplash to get rid of the splash art and intro videos.

And of course you can also enable and disable community made addons and mods through the in-game Options Expansions menu if you do not want to mess with startup parameters!

When the above information still does not provide you with enough to learn how to install custom addons and mods you can always ask in our Guide On Installing Mods.

Scripts featured in this release are not final, and are subject to change! If you experience any issues, please leave them on the release thread on the BI forums!

Credits & Thanks:
I do have permission from John to move forward with this project, as long as I give him the proper credit of course.
Thank you to John_Spartan for letting me release this config, I hope more people will use your aircraft now that it doesn't have the ArmA 2 jet sounds.
Thank You all for your support in this project!
