The original Il2 had great sound, the whistle of the 109's supercharger, the engine reving up, etc. Come FB and the game doesn't sound as great anymore. After getting a new speaker setup http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif, I've really noticed this, it would be great to have the original sounds! What do you think?

I think the sound has improved since 4.00 or 4.01. Sound of nearby aircraft is good, IL-2 engine sounds tough, AA not overwhelming.

The 109 still whistles.. So not too sure what you talking about.. As for sounds.. It use to be that the only thing worse than the sound in IL2-PF was the AI.. Now the AI is pretty good.. But the sounds are the worst I have seen in flight sims ever, and it has been that way since the orginal IL2. I mean you can hear a plane (espically a P38) a mile behind you.. And there is still the phantom sounds of gun fire when no one is around you.. Then there is the turn your head bug, turn it to the left, no prob, turn it to the right, the sound goes away.. That is just to name a few, all in all the worst sounds of any flight sim on the market today imho.

I liked the sound of the aircraft aproaching to you (specially when on ground) but they was changed because many people complains about.

Yes! That is what I meant, sounds did improve a bit in the last couple of patches, but they are nowhere near as good as they should be. This is one of the best, if not THE best WW2 sim to date, if Oleg and his crew pay so much attention to the FM, the gorgeous graphics, and small details (was IL2 not the first sim to model such small details as ejecting brass?), why not pay some attention to the sound aswell. I don't even understand why some of the old sounds were substituted. Since the sounds still exist and don't have to be remade, couldn't they just be put back in?

The sound of IL-2 wasn't that much better. It's just that the FB sound is optimised for high-end sound systems, while IL-2 wasn't. A while ago someone posted what to change in the conf.ini (i suppose there) file to get great sound (wouldn't help those with onboard soundcards, but those with expensive ones). Oleg had commented similarly some time ago about the same thing.

Also, I find it quite strange that people still ask about IL-2 FB improvements. We'll have BoB in a year people. Let them work on it and make it perfect. Don't bother the developers for supporting a 6 year-old game, when a brilliant new one is coming.

Um, don't take this the wrong way...but a thread about signing a petition isn't likely to accomplish much

We've done this already many times. You're beating a dead horse.

You're right about the 109, it used to sound way better, you knew it was working when you pushed that throttle forward.
But alas, as others have said "it aint gonna happen". http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

The sounds in BOB2 WOV although not entirely in perfect sync are superb compared to this sim.
You open the cockpit[in a Spit] and you hear the canopy slide against the runners and the wind noise amplifies the engine sounds.
If you watch alot of the movies made by people that use authentic sounds those movies instantly have more realism and punch.
