I could not hear my bomb release or drop
« on: May 18, 2019, 09:59:10 am »
I could not hear the bomb release or drop in IL-2 BOX. So, I searched forums and found I was missing some sound files. I downloaded them, put them where they go, then found the sound was not loud enough. I found info and utility to adjust sounds in the files. I will work with it and see if it fixes it for me. Box is the only flight sim with these issues. at one time I could h ear the bomb release, drop and explosion very well, then it went bad.. not sure exactly how long ago. I am going to see about this utility to tweak some files.

well, I can use an audio program,
first extrapolate the sound files from the main file, then analyze it, using free software, then amplify it, then have to put it back into the main file,,

all not hard but time consuming...

should not have to go through al this b.s. just for it to be a bit louder...…

understanding that if I just increase volume, everything increases,, I don't need anything else louder!

Just want to hear the K-Chunk of the bomb dropping.... ! too much to ask ?   :o

one more thing,, Norton did not like the utility files for the sounds so it flagged the program, had to tell Norton the files are good...
