Hi Folks,

If this has been answered before my apologies.

  • Does anyone have Victor's sound mod working with the VP Modpack?
  • If so, did you activate via jgsme or some other method?
  • Do you just use the WAW sound piece or would I need the TGA piece for planes like the Cr.32 and A5M4 Claude?

Thanks in advance, JG1234

As a sound-designer and sound modder myself (but not for IL2), I know the immense work behind a package like this.
We've had some good soundpacks in IL-2, and this one too is good work!  :)

Sound is something very subjective, so it's impossible to say a soundpack is better than other.
I'd say to try it anyway, have a good listening with various aircraft and different situations. You may be surprised for the positive.

All in all, I like it a lot.
Victor's Sound Mod provides clean sounds, good loops, audio with good quality, detail and "texture" (if that makes sense).
Actually, I think I'll keep using it in my IL2 installation untill something else takes preference.  8)

If I'm allowed the feedback/critic:
  • Sometimes I think the "stress" sounds are missing or really faint, when pushing the aircraft to the limit in harsher maneuvers.
    I guess I need to test it more, as it seemed ok in the Seafire (so maybe was just an impression?). I should mention that I've noticed similar issue before in VP Modpack as well.

  • Some guns/cannons sounded a bit weak, as if lacking "punch". But still alright.
    I've noticed similar issue with other soundpacks before, and also with VP Modpack (which uses Jiver's v2 soundpack, I think), so perhaps this is realistic? TBH, I have no idea.

Although far from complicated, it's not exactly a straightforward affair. More a matter of placing folders in the right place, and renaming.


Here's what I did:

If you notice, there is a "My_Presets" and a "My_Samples" in the main installation folder of IL2.
They're usually empty, or at least mine were (if they're not, then do a backup, just in case).
Keep these in mind, we'll comeback later to them.

Next, not being sure if latest VSM WAW include previous versions content, I've downloaded all files in order (all the WAW 3.0, 3.1 and 4.0 files, including improved samples, etc, etc).
One shouldn't complain when it comes to modding, but it would be nice to have a single up-to-date package.  :-[

Anyway, going on...
Inside each of these .ZIP files of VSM WAW that you download, there is a tree of folders, where there is always a "!Classes-Sound" folder.
Going inside it, you'll usually see two folders, a "Presets" and a "Samples" folder.

What I did was to rename the "Presets" into "My_Presets" and "Samples" into "My_Samples" (all without commas).


So, at the end of it all, now have two renamed folders, "My_Presets" and "My_Samples", from Victor's Sound Mod WAW, fully updated.

What I did next was to put (copy/paste) these two renamed folders into the main installation folder of IL2, overwriting then the two folders in there with same name (told ya we'd comeback later to them!).

And that was it. 8) Ready to rock n' roll.


AFAIK, this method works with any v4.12.2+ modact and non-modact v4.12.2+ based instalation, even with SAS engine mod.
Or at least that's what I remember reading. In anycase, it seems to work fine in VP Modpack and apparently also with HSFX.


 ;) This was the long version, if you want the short version...


For convenience, I repacked and uploaded the mentioned fully updated Victor's Sound Mod WAW4.0 (working with VP Modpack and, it seems, also with HSFX).
It can be downloaded from the following link:

LucShep.........Thank-you  :)

No problem.
Just glad if it helps people testing VSM, as it is a great soundpack deserving a good look (or a listen in this case).

BTW, I've updated my previous post.  :-X
It presents a sort of mini-guide (on what I did), and a download link for the up-to-date package (working with VP Modpack).

Greetings again, friends!

It certainly has been a while. I apologize for my absence here on SAS. I've been devoting my modding talents over to different games, along with getting some personal work done. I'm happy though to come back and see that my sound mod is still gaining support. Many thanks! ^_^

@LucShep:

It's a deep pleasure to have a sound designer come across my work. Also, thank you for keeping my mod's followers up to date with that new download you cooked up for VP, HSFX, the works.

Just wanted to drop by and let you guys know I'm not dead yet. :D

Best wishes,

Victor

Hi Victor
I have recently reinstalled your sound mod for WAW 4.0 after trying a few others but liking yours best, but I now have a problem? I have lost all my external Jet Sounds? Even in cockpit it is very quiet. Piston engines are fine??
Any ideas?
I use CUP btw
Mick
I tried installing dirtbloxx new jet sounds too but have the same issue?

SOLVED I moved them as per LucSheps instructions now all jet sounds are back? Although my UI clicker sound has changed??
