Hi

 

  Sometimes, in game, there is this little... don't not know what to call it, 'Chime' sound. It is not part of the normal sound effects (like guns, engines, consumables...). Does anybody know what it actually is / what it announces?

 

Thanks

Could be the one that indicates your guns are loaded...I think...but it tends to just basically become background noise so I usually don't even hear it

No, then it would appear frequently. It is just occasionally and i haven't noticed any pattern...

Possibly the noise after taking a substantial hit ?

Do you have a recording of the sound or a battle where it occurs ?

Yeah, the magical "wake up, your BB has reloaded" sound that for some reason WG felt the need to introduce. And no, you can not turn it off in settings.

At least having the game run really quietly and some music playing helps with that

:Smile_teethhappy:. No neither. I was playing a Z-52. I also just recorded the replay, and noticed that this sound is NOT part of the replay! So its not a normal 'Game-Play' sound.

 

Actually, does getting a +1/-1 on Karma issue a sound? -> 'Plays well', 'Formidable opponent' and such?

Seems i have to record my games from now on directly.

 

BTW: Was not engaged, so no hit received. No BB (as Z-52) or guns reloaded either. This sound is driving me nuts every time it pops up...

Not as far as I know.

 

If it's not the BB thing, nor is it the hit thing, then I really can't imagine what it would be :cap_hmm:

chime sound is from when you choose set speed. usualy when you start the game you set the speed max so you wont hear this. but if you stand still and start the ship engine you will hear ding/chime sound when you set the speed up. in middle of the full war shooting you wont hear it as you hear everything else and its more like in the background noise.

 

bb ammo reloaded is like a clunk noise. and torp reload is also a diffrent clunk noise.

The engine telegraph-sounds would appear in the replay.

Possibly a sound from another program or someone sending you a message in port, while you're in battle ?
