TROUBLESHOOTING SOUND

Problem with Sound:
(The new independent CodeGroup v1.28 EAW patch and beyond) use's 16-bit sounds at all times, even when you set the game to use 8bit. Many of the default stock sounds have been replaced as well.

 

ARCADE STYLE SOUND SETTING


Note: In later versions (maybe starting with the independent CodeGroup v1.28), they have increased the Maximum Sound Volume setting and have set the Engine Volume to only effect your Engine sound, not all the planes. This allows you to have an even better External sound experience as you can lower your Engine Sound down to nothing if you choose to.

Here's the sound area I have for v1.40v64 of EAW. Note: In the game setup for sound, If you center all sliders, the sounds should be rather balanced all over, but then you can still move them up or down for your preference.

SoundVolume=65535
EngineVolume=36863
ExternalVolume=57344
MusicVolume=36863
SpeechVolume=36863


 

LIST OF SOUNDS IN SOUND16.CDF

 

(for v1.28 and above) I think the following where added later in the source modification and not part of the v1.2 list.
snd0057 Long water landing or takeoff
snd0058 NONE
snd0059 Landing ski's flex on water

 

1.28 Start and Run:
The source modification of EAWv1.28 and versions above it have the ability to have individual Start and Run sounds for all planes by means of a special sounds sub-folder. There are correct sounds now for each plane type instead of the Generic stock Engine sounds used in stock EAW. v1.28 still supports the old method of replacing the Generic Sounds as listed above. For example; all sounds, snd0001.snd thru snd0059.snd should work when placed in the root. (Except of course snd0030.snd thru snd0046.snd, which were the generic engine sounds which are no longer used because all planes in v1.28 now have the individual plane type sounds for start and run, snd0060.snd thru snd0119.snd and up.))

(for v1.28e and above) Here are the default EAW aircraft types and the slot number with new engine sounds.
There should be more information available in the \Sounds folder Readme.txt. List by Knegel.
