After speaking to most of our regular pilots no one hears the .50's hitting thier aircraft be it from bomber gunnery or fighters.

Is this the same for everyone else online ?
Fly past a bomber formation and you have fuel leaks or smoking engine but never hear a single round hit the aircraft German or Japanese.

S!

I usually fly red, but I don't recall having that problem.

In fact, I made a quick test mission with a 109 vs 4 B-17's. Not only did the 50's hitting my plane make plenty of noise, the whole plane shook with each hit.

Seems fine to me. I tested it online in HL, just to be sure. Next time you see me, give me a page and we'll fly it together.

No question about it. Unless you are blind and deaf you will know exactly when you are being hit.

Yep - last week in squad co-op I hit friendlies twice with .50 cals and they both heard it all right http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

Could be online artifacts not hearing hits and damage. Maybe you also hear firing when noone is near? This was a problem on large servers in earlier patches anyway.

This still happens to me on occasion just after re-spawn. Only one in the area yet the firing appears quite close.

some times i dont hear the hits. even when there cannon rounds. might have something to do with what type of sound drivers we use. i use onbord soundmax.

no probs here....must be a setting/driver/hardware issue.
