Sounds in Aces High
« on: May 05, 2020, 01:57:27 PM »
Hi Mates

I'm a very old timer just returned.  The game still looks pretty good.  Greebo and the guys have done a super job with skins.  However, can't understand why the sounds are so bad.

In the tower, with aircraft taking off, sounds like a bunch of Cessna 150's instead of WWII aircraft that we have in the game.

I was very lucky.  Have been flying since I was 17 (1954), flew in the Army in the 60's and had my own airplanes in the 70's and 80's.  Quit flying in 1985.  I was very lucky in the late 70's to sponsor restoration on a couple of WW2 aircraft down at Harlengen Texas in the CAF.  I was a colonel in those days.  Anyway, as a sponsor I got to either fly or fly in a lot of the aircraft in this game.  B24, 25, 29.  P40, 38,51.  SBD and some others.  So I have heard these aircraft crank up and idle and takeoff.  I  have heard the cockpit sounds on them as well.

I might suggest that anyone that has the talent to create sounds for this game try and attend any CAF airshow near your home if you can.  If you know they are coming, you might contact CAF in advance and see if they might let you record the various aircraft.  My guess is they would.  Pretty good bunch of guys.

Not being critical, just making a suggestion hoping  to improve the game.  I started online gaming in Warbirds back in the mid 90's.  We had some really great squadrons over there and some super times.  My wife and I traveled to the UK for years and our squad would have gatherings at Shepherd Tavern in Shepherds Market, London on a number of occasions.  So, very close bunch  of guys.  I am the only one left over here.

Good gaming mates.

Chalenge has a pack with a substantial amount of aircraft sound changes, but from what he said it has been quite expensive to do. I believe the 'new' sound system makes it a bit more difficult to create custom sounds, can no longer drag and drop mp3 files.

We used to have several sound packs. With the sound upgrade those went away. The new system is a pain to build packs for... so I understand. To date only one individual has taken on the task. It is a work in progress.

Yeah, you can't just go to the local Walmart and find your favorite airplane or tank hanging out. To date only two people have supported the effort. Well, three with Hitech's help.
If you like the Sick Puppy Custom Sound Pack the please consider contributing for future updates by sending a months dues to Hitech Creations for account "Chalenge." Every little bit helps.

Since downloading Chalengeís Sound Pack, Iíve been continually impressed with the quality and individuality of the aircraft and vehicles.  Of the aircraft Iíve seen/heard real world, these are spot on. Well done, Chalenge! :salute

Again why not just utilize the sounds from the multitude of sound packs we had in Aces high 2?

Why not ask the guys that made those sounds?
