I was flying the KI-27 on the "Italy" map when my engine went dead...and I heard the wind blowing around me for the first time. I have been playing this game for years and never heard this before...

(hey at least this post IS about the game http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sleepzzz.gif)


<span class="ev_code_YELLOW">Are their any "little" sounds that you think go unnoticed?</span>

I know some people "hate" the sounds of "IL2 1946" but I'm always hearing little things that I think are fun...the other day I was flying against "Gladiators" and I marveled at how their guns sounded as they flew past...

(1) And, when, may I ask did you start hearing this sound? Do you also hear voices telling you to do things?

(2) OK, FESS UP! WHICH MOD ARE YOU USING, YOU GODLESS, ATHEISTIC, COMMUNISTIC, XXXXXX??????????

IIRC wind noise appeared with PF and the ability to open some canopies.

A couple of times when parachuting into a forest I've heard birds twittering.

LOL!! funny stuff...

Really! for some reason I never noticed the sound of the wind. The engine in the Ki-27 when dead, I opened the cockpit and then it happened...the sound of buffeting wind. I seem to remember looking for this sound a long time ago (when cockpits first started opening) and didn't hear it.

Maybe its just MY ears healing (LOL)...years ago I blew-out my eardrums (playing in a rock-band) and to some extent I always hear the wind blowing or a "siren" (and I don't mean the mythical female creature)...but recently the subtle sounds of the <span class="ev_code_YELLOW">STOCK</span> game have been coming alive for me... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I did change the "Attenuation" settings in the "config" to 2...but that shouldn't change the sound that much...

<span class="ev_code_PINK">on a personal note (and it really bugs me that I have to say this) I don't use any game mods...so don't look for any hidden messages here...</span>


<span class="ev_code_YELLOW">My question still stands...are their any little detail sounds that help make the game "come alive" for you? And what (and when) are they??</span>

I'm starting to notice more & more little sounds too...

I have a Creative X-Fi soundcard and Sennheiser headphones: the sound quality is excellent but i have just started to play with the soundcard settings on 'Entertainment' (with 24-bit Crystalizer enabled) instead of 'Gaming' mode - the difference is extraordinary (not necessarily better for gaming but just the sound quality)! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif

There are many many sounds you normally will never think you hear....Disrupted air flow around the plane when stalling, ground vehicles, guns firing, sounds of rounds from cannon and MG both from aircraft and ground matching path and so on....

You actually hear most if not all of them once within a realistic range......However, you don't hear them clearly as you shouldn't as you're in the closed cockpit of a roaring plane.

That said, how often did you get the "feeling" to look to the ground, look to your 6, or whatever suddenly to find tanks rolling by, or a plane firing at you from so far you wouldn't see the tracers..............Well, it's not that we're all so gifted with a 6th sense of the ace of aces that we do that....It's the oh so subtle and soft audio cues within the game itself. You don't hear them directly, yet you did indeed hear them causing you to react...Otherwise you'd not of.

The sim's sounds deserve a lot more credit then most give them.

I use headphones when playing this game. I hear the wind blowing past the plane, though only after i've either opened the cockpit or cycled to an open gunner position on a multi position plane and i still hear the wind noise after closing cockpit or cycle back to pilot position. I can hear flak guns, the 88mm or 85 mm type, shooting from about 10,000 ft up. I can clearly hear a aircraft closing on my six from about 500 meters back. It's wrong IMO. I don't think you'd be able to hear anything IRL with the engine roaring, helmet on, headphones fot rt ect. The german ace Hartman said he believed 70 some percent of his kills never knew he was there till he opened fire. Saburo Sakai closed on a P-39, hid in the blind spot, recorded the cruising speed, then opened fire. Nobody could do that to me in this game. I'd hear em comin a county mile away. By the way, what is a country mile?

Yes..... and visually you could see the effect of the wind all along. It is little things like that that put this sim as a cut above the rest...

There are quite a few of these 'rare' sounds like the clunk of releasing bombs and drop tanks and one of my favourites the 'thunk' of the relay when you turn on dashboard lights ....

il2 had a sound bug that allowed me to fly without engine sound. i discovered a distant boom occurred moments after firing machine guns. i assume its the sound of the bullets going supersonic in free fall.

Also if you own a Micro Soft Force Feedback Sidewinder2 joystick, you will feel a jolt when a enemy aircraft explodes near you or if you drop a bomb at low level altiude with no bomb delay, you will feel the concusion of it. But alass, my joystick went south. I miss that stick.

I heard someone else say something about that...I think they said that they could "feel" the resistance of the wind on the control surfaces (harder when pulling out of a dive, none when stalling) even subtle changes in the "air pressure" could be felt (like buffeting)...

My question is: why is this? I thought that "force feedback" was programed into the game, not the joystick.
Shouldn't all joysticks reproduce the same effects? And if not where dose the M$ joystick get it's "extra" information from?

interesting... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

All Force Feedback sticks should do that, and they do...

It's just there's not many good quality FFB Joysticks out there...

Sidewinder FFB2 is one of the good ones.

Another one is the Guillemot FFB, (which I think is way better than MS FFB2) and said forces can surely be felt using that stick.

I'm a recent convert to the MS FFB stick, and I have to say, it's all that and more. What I especially like is the controls going slack as you approach the stall. Also, when you make a rough landing, you feel it.

Listen for the tire screech when planes touch down on landing.

The doc tells me I shuoldnt worry bout it too much tho, just need to maybe change my diet.
