Revert the old sound system

Postby matziti » Thu May 25, 2017 8:29 pm

I believe you can revert to the old system by starting H&G, opening H&GSync, go to files> edit localsettings.ini> and in the file add "audio.occlusion=false" then save the file and restart the game. Worked for me.

Yes, this can improve sound a bit but it is still worse than before.

I dont really see big problems with the system itself other than sounds need to be louder at certain ranges from close to far.

Before sound update I could pinpoint sound's source in few meters of difference, now I can't. Yesterday on Factory map in forest near B2 I missed enemy position by 50 meters, my sound prediction of enemy position is completely screwed.

Suffered many deaths while spinning around looking for enemies far away based on the sound just to die and see that bush wookie sitting just 10 meters away, that bush magically muffled all sound a Bolt Action Rifle makes, thank you very much.

All we needed was a fix for the silent BA/SA rifles and a volume slider for airplane sounds, not another fix for no skill players with bad sound hardware.

I think the worst thing with this system is bolt actions really as sniper like 60m or so from me sounded like he was behind me 2m away but i believe he was like 60m behind me... but i cant comment as that match was weird anyway they had like 10 recons so yea...

Not possible to revert it anymore.

I really find it annoying and taking a break on this game until this it's fixed. It makes me angry to get shot because I can't find the guy shooting at me.
Especially if you're rushing it's annoying this sound is in favour of a defender or camper.
