Thumbs up [Audio] Distant Weapon Sounds

Along with a vast array of new weapon, vehicle and ambient sounds we've cooked up for you there is also a new feature to 3rd person weapons sounds that has never been attempted before in the BF2 engine. In the following video you'll see myself and db firing of tons of rounds from various weapons. Each calibre has it's own unique distant sound (5.56, 7.62, 9mm, 50cal).

Have a listen for yourselves, but bare in mind that the audio quality will obviously be far better in game. Also note that here, there are only two people shooting off rounds. Hopefully in a game with 30+ players there'll be a constant "live" ambient track of realtime gunfire


Sound Settings


In Project Reality we have stretched the boundries of the BF2 audio engine to provide you the most realistic and immersive audio experience we can. That said, this experience can be damaged depending on which settings you have seleted. So here are the suggested settings for both users with and without creative sound cards.

Creative Users


Set your audio settings to hardware w/ EAX enabled. If you are lucky enough to have an X-Fi card, use the appropriate settings BF2 has for X-Fi users.

Onboard Audio & Other brand Users

Set your audio settings to software w/ EAX enabled. Also make sure you download and install this. It will update your Openal API giving it improved EAX support among other things.

I live next to an army barracks (just over 400m in fact :P) and wow....
SO wow... so very much wow, if wow was measured in wowometers then this would be off the wowometerometer... just wow...

I know I've got a way with words :P

Edit: Wow...

Real Edit.. 0.7 will go down in history as the most unanticipated game ever! I mean ppl are hyped up so much about it, theyre acting like folk are watching the Dev journal so closley that theyll get replies 10 minutes after an update at 4 in the morning...

Hang on.....

Incredible. I take back the already negative amount of bad things I never said about the dev team. Also, wow.
