Sound Adjustment Tips
If you want to customize the music and sounds according to your preferences, we'd like to give you some tips on how to do it better.
The main volume sliders are located on the left side of the Audio settings window:
General volume level - manages all sound in the game;
SFX volume - manages all sounds except music and voice messages.
There are several sliders on the right side of the Audio settings window for "fine-tuning" the sound.
Gunfire volume - in the range from 100% to 50% adjusts the volume of your ship's shots, and in the range from 50% to 0% adjusts the volume of all shots in the game. This slider also adjusts the hit volume;
Engine sounds - in the range of 100% to 80% regulates the volume of "low-frequency knocking" in the engine sound. In the range of 80% to 0% adjusts the overall volume of the engines.
In order to adjust the sound perfectly, you should start with the General volume and SFX volume, and then adjust it in detail with the other sliders.
Please note: if the volume level is reduced to a minimum, it is possible that a category of sound will be muted because very quiet sounds are not a priority for the game sound system.
We also advise you to pay attention to the parameter "Wide dynamic range". This option is enabled for all players by default. Turning it off will minimize the difference in volume between the loudest and the quietest sounds in the game.
We recommend you disable this setting in the following cases:
If you are using a laptop or other device with built-in speakers;
If you don't think the sound in the game is balanced enough, even after "fine-tuning" the volume.
When disabling this option, be sure to set the sliders on the right side of the settings menu to maximum volume.
