    Do You Think The Weapon Sounds Are A Bit ......... Quiet ?

    Dya think they sound a bit too low ? Even with the music down they dont seem *BLAM* enough, like the gun u start off with, very quiet, cud do with some pumping up imo. This is the same with UT2K3 & 4. Whadya reckon ?

    As I frequently like to remind people, I've been having a problem where all the sound effects in UT2k4 are at very, very low levels. Is it possible that you're experiencing something similar aswell?

    What leads me to suspect the contrary, however, was the fact that my sound effects in UT2k3 were at a much higher (and good) level. I think that the sound effects in UT2k3 were great. Now if only I could get them in UT2k4.

        I find the same thing only with weapon switching, boostdodging and visable skins.

              Lolington.

              My output is quieter than ut2003 too, low even with pc and hifi volume maxed out. It's louder through earphones though, so I use those.

                Turn off voice chat, that increases your overall volume.

                  Yes! The 2k3 sounds are MUCH better

                  It's like I have plenty of volume, but the weapon sounds come off very distant and unclear....like they're being muffeled.

                  I can't believe they dicked with the shock sound (both combo and primary). That was perfection in 2k3.

                    the 2k4 sounds are highly missacled, i turn them up for more effect but then a tank with a machine gunner comes by and nearly blows my speakers.

                      Actually, I've found you just have to change:

                      SoundVolume=1.000000

                      to

                      SoundVolume=3.000000

                      in your UT2004.ini file and then the sounds are great -- much better than UT2K3. BTW, it's a bug that's been reported a zillion times in the demo feedback forum, and Epic already said they're working on the sound problems.

                      Also, after you make the change, if you mess with certain menu settings within the game it's as if SoundVolume gets reset to 1.0, but it hasn't been. Just exit and reboot the game and it will be fine once more.

                        SpatializedVoiceRadius=100000.000000

                          No. The sound sucks IMO. That tweak doesn't make the sound come anywhere close to the quality of 2k3 IMO.

                          Thx though

                              That's too bad. Maybe it's your rig. Except for those that have succumbed to the sound bug, I've seen many posts on this forum praising the improved sound.

                              BTW, I'm using EAX and the quality is great. Almost all of the weapons sound better. Mini: Better. Link: Better. Flak: Better. Rocket Launcher: the wooshing of the rockets is more pronounced and you can actually hear them coming now. And the Shock: ****! The combo is going to kill my woofer.
