Topic is in the title really, is there any mod to revert the sound to 8.7, or have any of you guys found sound settings that makes the game somewhat playable?

I have to admit that most games I am playing is without sound (I have headphones, but not on my head).

Are the changes to the sound worth putting headphones on?

 

Before you ask I prefer to listen to music, as sounds in most games are irrelevant.

someone at WG thought it was a good idea to change the planes boost sound to something out of mario kart

The only thing in 8.8 sound wise that grates, is the alarm sounding while the ship is on fire. I dont need a warning alarm I know when my ship is on fire, because...........my ship is on fire.

Sound volumes are all over the place!

Guns are extremely loud, sound effect for destroying a ship is barely audible.

not to mention the tinitus wind sound being on the sfx slider, forcing you to pretty much turn the torpedo warning sound off completely...

I stopped playing. My head hurts and I literally can't think at all. I believe no one cans as the gameplay took another dip into the abyss. Playerbase is confused and bewildered and don't know wut they are doing. More so than before which considering, its a huge accomplishment in retrospect. So well done I guess :Smile_smile:

Was this tested?

It was, but if you don't react to the test results, that doesn't help much.

At the current state of sounds you should only want to put on headphones if you have suicidal thoughts and wanna get ear cancer

I dont have time to try their temportary solution right now, if anyone here tries it, could you report back if it works or not?

Temporary solution is to lower all ingame volumes to 0 and put some music. It will be fixed soontm enough, no need for panic :Smile_popcorn:

When they said they were going to base gun sounds off of caliber, I didn't think what they meant was that they were going to copy and paste Yamato's """""unique""""" gun sounds to every BB with guns bigger than 406mm. Except Republique apparently, which still has it's old sounds but has bigger guns than conq, which now has Yamato's sounds. because god forbid there was a reason to play Yamato anymore.

Also, the "reverb" on the horns? I'mfairly certain they just copied the horn to play a second time with a half-second delay instead of doing real reverb.

Nice job breaking it.

I was playing earlier on headphones and had to back the volume off as it was just plain weird, then I fired a salvo from the Molotov and thought 'What boat am I on?', sounds naff all like what it did, sooner it rolls back the better or a decent patch to revert most of the nastiness that is currently abounding. Oh and that weird 'On fire' alarm.... just no please.

Very very annoying engine sound.

Can hardly hear when the reload is done.

Gunsound from a ship 5 mile away extremely loud.

Extremely loud impact sound of hits on my ship, eventhough sound very low coz its so annoying.

Bleebs in port when mounting and unmounting flags.

Unbareble change all in all.

 

Please undo the change, its fucked up!!!!!!

 

And bugged up coz my language of choice, German, is replaced with English which i cant change, so annoying.

 

DO NOT  CHANGE THINGS UNLESS BROKEN.

Notser gives a starting point on his latest vid.  Me, I just turned almost everything down but the gunfire (and a couple of other things)
