LAST VERSION:0.464
Gnomefather has thrown his hat into the ring for engine sounds once more! This time using sounds different than those from Forgotten Hope 2. Right now they're still in the beta stage as of the current update, and he's looking for any comments or critiques which can be sent to his username :gnomefather:
Enough of this talking, though. Allow me to get to the mod itself. FIRST the previews:

Important Note:
If you experience problems with performance, please post your computer specifications (graphics card, ram, processor) as well as a possible video or other information. Simply telling us "It's running badly" does not help us remedy the situation. Please note that this mod may be a little heavy due to its use of many different engine sounds, and if you're struggling to play WoT as-is it may not help your situation. Alternatives such as Nobleplatoon's engine sounds may help in these cases if you do not want to use the default engines, but suffer poor performance.

New update coming already! Just give me a chance to post it.
New previews and downloads are now up.

Personally, to throw my own notes for improvement into the ring so gnome sees them...I have to say my favorite right now is the continental combined with tiger sounds. The panther is still a bit on the loud side, and some of the noises it makes need to be balanced together (for example, the rev down being very long and loud compared to the moving fast sound). The Tiger could be just a little louder, but its definitely almost there.

Is it just the Radial and the Tiger sounds across all tanks right now?

Depends on which you choose. I made a suggestion to gnome about light tanks (thinking about using a hetzer's engine, seeing as it did use a pz38t chasis). Right now, though, we have two choices...one has the tiger and radial together. The radial will be used for most medium tanks and heavies (That's just how the game works. It only inherently uses a few sounds for all its engines). The Tiger will be used for most heavier germans, and some other heavies such as the french. The other option just replaces the tiger sound with the panther sound. (Note, the panther sound is still quite loud :P)

But you won't be seeing many more than 3, MAYBE 4 sounds. I'm not sure exactly how many files the game has, but it only uses 3 or 4 different sounds for engines. Each individual engine filters the sound so it comes out slightly differently, however. Thats why you think the game uses many more sounds :P

ATM, though, there are no light tank sounds. So you'll only hear the treads.

Will have an update later :V Introducing LIGHT TANK NOISES. Well most of them. MS-1 and Leich still lack sounds, but we have a good majority. Hetzer engine was chosen given its a highly modified LT-38/Pz38(t). And it sounds awesome ;3

If i were you I'd get gnome to make these 7.4 compatible as a headstart. 7.4 made 7.3 and everything down for sounds completely incompatible.

I will download 7.4 test and check out the sound files ASAP!

I see why they "Broke". They separated the sound files into individual pieces. So you have an individual sound bank for the light tank engines. Shouldn't be THAT hard to adapt it...I hope.

EDIT: Also they still work :P It might be cleaner to rework the mod, but I test it and the sounds still worked. The only difference is the fev files call multiple fsb files now. You can keep it the same, or adapt to this.

They still work. The only thing that changed is that the fev files call to multiple fsb files now. However, if you have a single fsb file and a properly made fev file it'll still work. HOWEVER...I will agree we may want to change to 7.4s setup just because it is cleaner than using a single sound bank. However, the sound mod still worked for me.

EDIT: ALL my old sound files worked for me. Don't know where you figured that 7.4 made them break.

Stranger yet the FH2 gunsounds are one of the sound mods that worked for me during my test :P Make sure you copy the NEW audio folder over to the new res_mods folder entirely, put the mods inside there and overwrite, then delete the unused fsb files from the folder.

Stay tuned as we have another update coming up that should ensure no sounds are missing :P Then its just the fine tuning. Just gotta wait for gnome to get back to me on my reply to him. And make sure to post feedback on what you like/don't like!
