VP Modpack Tiger Flybys addon
« on: September 12, 2016, 11:25:58 AM »

Hello all and welcome to my contribution to the modding community. I did some very early sound and graphics mods under the name slipry when modding was growing for IL-2, and here we are today still doing it.

What we have here with permission from Tiger_33 is a sort of half version of his UV3 sound mod. Primarily I set out to make the Flybys section of his mod to work in a modded HSFX 7 install. I wont go into detail the issues I had but under a modded condition the class file that selects the flyby when a motor.prs was loaded needed a little help linking the motor > flyby sound. Thats what I hope to have achieved here for the VP Modpack with permission from vpmedia.

What the mod will do:

                              A: Introduce a single flypast with Tigers flyby sound (F3 by default I think but check you have a key bound to flyby in your controls setup)

                              B: Cockpit volume level change between open and closed canopy

                              C: Introduce Tigers gear and flap sound

                              D: Introduce WepEffect where you get blue exhaust flame after 98% throttle. (If you don't want this effect add this line to the config.ini under the MODS tab, WepEffect=0

                              E: The Holygrail start flame will become active

                              F: Landing touch down with bounces will screech the tires evey time

                              G: Introduce the setting of 64 channels under sound setup

As usual you will need to be running with perfect landscape setting and have these settings under the sound tab in your config.ini
[sound]
SoundMode=1
SamplingRate=1
NumChannels=4                                               
SoundFlags.hardware=1

There maybe no flybys on winter maps, I personally haven't checked but there is a fix here on the SAS site

Credits go out to Tiger_33 for his wonderfull work,
                       Qtim for his editing tools
                       vpmedia for his modpack
                       SAS for thier modding support to the community
                       Oleg Maddox for his IL-2 1946 sim

Cheers everyone and enjoy

  NLA



As an enhancement to the Flyby mod I would like to share my soundmod version. Primarily it is to reduce the sound mixing volume when a plane is leaving the flyby bubble and the external sound
becomes primary. In some cases it took the immersion away as the planes got further in distance. All files are from authors of previous mods, I just edited files and adjusted wav files.
Please note that the mod is in the format of IL-2 custom sounds as I belive the game searches for these first. I highly recommend removing any sound mod folders from your #SAS folder in the vpmod to a backup folder outside from the #SAS folder before activating my soundmod.
You can also remove any reference to sound files from the #00_Tiger Flyby's folder within the #SAS folder if you choose to use this mod.

NLA as superseded by V2.0 of the mod below





Update to V2.0 Dated 01/10/17

A complete soundmod with engine startup and running effects
Edited Motorsound.class to attempt more efficiency linking flyby to prs

Compiled new SndAircraft.class, SndAircraft$1.class to suit my mod.(Origional was from HSFX 7.03)
New Jet flyby files created to align with country of origin, eg DE, US, RU
Two stage engine startup flame: Pre-start flame animation ending with flashes on fireup.
Pre-start flame for ME-262
Two stage WEP effect: From 86% throttle faint flashes of orange appear, then when 96% the blue flame starts
Re-compiled buttons mainly for some engine sound allocation

Credits for most sounds go to Tiger_33 and victor639514, editing by DaveB

   
Cheers and enjoy DaveB


PS: I will leave the links to V1.0 for those that may only want the flybys and not a full sound mod





Here is the V2 of my mod to suit HSFX 7.03 only. WILL NOT work with VPmod

Its working perfectly here! Thank you very much!

Does anyone remember the parameter to change in conf.ini to adjust de flyby sound with F3 views? I remember than in the original mod you need to change a value to synchronize sound and view.

Try this : FlybyFov=30F, or 70F     This line is seen in the class file, never tried it as I dont think my game is out of sync. May be you could try other values as well.

Cheers DaveB

Ok, I found the text (thanks Mick):

Quote
After changing the time of the Flyby and the automatic zoom to F3 to synchronize sound and image some have complained that too much zoom.
So I changed all of this to restore the zoom to  F3 view by original default zoom. ... but I added a configurable option.

For those who want a Fov therefore more or less large and active as soon as you activate F3 you can set this one with a minimum value of 30 (max zoom) to 70 (default zoom) and in steps of five:

30,35,40,45,50,55,60,65,70 ........ by adding this in the conf.ini:

[Mods]
FlybyFov=60.0 --------> example of Fov was 60.


To you therefore now to find what suits you best.
