~ UJS / Ultimate Jet Sounds ~ v1.23
« on: May 03, 2019, 07:52:42 PM »

After multiple years of complete inactivity, I've finally returned and finished UJS v1.2, which had been sitting on my hard drive forever, almost finished but not quite there. I can't speak for everyone, but in my opinion, this finished version of UJS v1.2 is a large all-round improvement over version 1.1, with wind sounds, sounds for modern jets like the F-18, angle-based flyby sounds, in-cockpit wind and ambience, and many other changes, including a better folder structure. I can't thank this community enough for the treasures it's given me in the mods for our beloved old game - with UJS, I hope to make a little bit of a contribution myself.

reading the entire readme is not required.

               UJS LICENSING/USAGE and GENERAL INFO
-------------------------------------------------------------------
UJS (Ultimate Jet Sounds) v1.23 by FL2070/dirtbloxxMC of SAS1946.

All IL-2 Sturmovik modifications made by FL2070/dirtbloxxMC
are made under the DWTFYWWI lisence. They may be, and are
encouraged to be edited, redistributed, used for other
games or purposes, and improved.

If you make an edit of this modification, and you think it's
worth sharing, don't hesitate.

UJS v1.23 is a modification for IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 which
modifies the sounds of the jets in-game. Sounds for modern jets
from the SAS modern jets pack (F-18, Harrier) are included as of
version 1.22.


CONTENTS:
 - 14 different jet soundsets for all jets in the game, all using
   high quality audio files sampled in 44.1 khz.
 - One rocket soundset for use with aircraft such as the Me-163.
 - Sounds which vary by distance: zoom out to hear the blast
   of the engine from far away, zoom in to hear the turbine.
 - Additional "cockpit fan" sound effect for all jets.
 - Wind sounds for all jets.
 - Gear, flaps, missile lock, and fixed AOA warning sounds that
   can't be heard in external views.
 - This README, which contains usage information, installation
   instructions, compatibility information, troubleshooting,
   filesizes, the changelog, and a matrix of sounds and which
   presets and folders and planes they use. The README is also
   identical to the main post on the sas1946 forum.
-------------------------------------------------------------------



-------------------------------------------------------------------
                UJS INSTALLATION and COMPATIBILITY
-------------------------------------------------------------------
TO INSTALL in MODDED GAMES
  Move the folder named "! UJS v1.23", contained in the "UJS Modded"
  folder,  to your active MODS folder(s), which will be named something
  like #SAS, #UP#, #WAW etc. UJS is now activated and will be heard
  the next time you start IL-2.

TO INSTALL in STOCK GAME (4.12 and later)
  Move the contents of the presets and samples folders,
  contained in the UJS Modded folder, to the my_presets and
  my_samples folders in the game's root folder, making sure you
  keep the correct folder structure.

COMPATIBILITY
  UJS v1.23 is compatible with all modded versions of IL-2 and all
  common buttons, from 4.09 to 4.13, and also UV3. UJS v1.23 is also
  compatible with the stock, unmodified game. (versions 4.12m and
  later ONLY)
-------------------------------------------------------------------



-------------------------------------------------------------------
                       UJS TROUBLESHOOTING
-------------------------------------------------------------------
PROBLEM: I do not hear any new jet sounds/I only hear some sounds.
SOLUTIONS:
 - Check the folder structure. You should be able to find idle.wav
   in the directory IL-2/MODS*/! UJS v1.23/samples/AI25/idle.wav.
   If there are extra erroneous folders, delete UJS and reinstall
   it, making sure to check the correct directories.
   
 - 4.12 and later: Navigate to IL-2/MODS*/! UJS v1.23/presets/sounds
   and copy every file there. Paste them in to my_presets/sounds, and
   replace any files if asked. This solution will only be relevant
   if you already have jet-related presets in my_presets/sounds.

PROBLEM: I hear hum sound on Ta183/He162C/D, or buzz sound on MiG21.
SOLUTION:
   Buzzing/humming engines are HeS-11 and Tumanski/R-11. If you
   don't want this sound for your engines, add minus characters
   to the front of the following files:
    - UJS/samples/HeS11/hum/wav
    - UJS/samples/R-11/buzz.wav
   That way, if you decide later otherwise, you can remove the
   minuses from the filenames to get the sound back.

PROBLEM: I don't hear afterburner sounds.
SOLUTION:
   Afterburner sounds not being heard are not a UJS problem, but
   a problem with the system of mods you have installed. Certain
   older versions of western's engine mod broke afterburner sounds,
   but if you update to the latest version, that should fix it.

PROBLEM: I hear afterburner sounds even when my engine is off.
SOLUTION:
   Afterburners being heard when the engine is not running can
   be solved by installing the latest version of SAS Engine Mod,
   or by adding minus signs to the beginning of the following two
   files:
    - UJS/samples/UJS_Common/afterburn.wav
    - UJS/samples/UJS_Common/x_afterburn.wav
   This, though, disables afterburner sounds completely.

PROBLEM: Certain planes sound "broken" or "incomplete".
SOLUTION:
   This is most likely a programming error in UJS. Report the
   problem to me on the SAS1946 forums so I can fix it.

PROBLEM: The Jumo 004 is so high pitched, it hurts my ears.
SOLUTION:
   Jumo 004 had a very high pitched turbine sound in real life, so
   I modelled it that way. To decrease this effect, go in to the
   following two presets and make these edits:
    - motor.Jumo004.prs
- motor.Jumo004A.prs
   Find the "minlo" and "maxhi" values in the section called
   [sample.Jumo004/turbine.wav.rpm] and decrease the "maxhi" value
   to 4000. If that isn't enough, decrease it to 3000.

* "MODS" being whatever your mods folder is called.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
                    UJS FILESIZES and OPTIONS
-------------------------------------------------------------------
  Total Compressed Filesize:     139MB
  Total Uncompressed Filesize:   196MB

All compression is done in maximum compression RAR4 format.

FLAP/GEAR SOUNDS
 Flap/gear sounds are included by default. If you wish to remove
 them, go into the samples folder and add minus characters to
 the front of the following files:
  - e_dev_05_2.wav
  - e_dev_05_21.wav
  - p_dev_00.wav
  - p_dev_02.wav

NEW AIM9 LOCK SOUNDS
 A different lock sound for the AIM9 is included by default. If you
 wish to remove this sound, go into the samples folder and add minus
 characters to the front of the following files:
  - AIM9_lock.wav
  - AIM9_no_lock.wav
-------------------------------------------------------------------



-------------------------------------------------------------------
       UJS used in STOCK IL-2 (MY_PRESETS/MY_SAMPLES FOLDERS)
-------------------------------------------------------------------
UJS can be used with unmodded installations of IL-2 by way of the
my_presets and my_samples folders as long as you have version 4.12m
or later. If you want to use the my_presets and my_samples format
instead of installing UJS as a mod, then you have simply to copy the
contents of "presets" to "my_presets", and the contents of "samples"
to "my_samples", making sure you keep the correct folder structure.

UJS has been updated to version 1.21 with wind sounds and many, many bug fixes including sounds that were too loud and wrong.

Re: ~ UJS / Ultimate Jet Sounds ~ v1.22 (AV8B and F18 added)
« Reply #7 on: May 22, 2019, 01:11:58 PM »

UJS has been updated to version 1.22: now with sounds for modern jets like F18, AV8B, F16, fixed AOA sounds that don't play outside of the cockpit, and more. Read the v1.22 readme for more information. Due to the different way I packed the file this time, it's also a lot smaller. Enjoy!

UJS has been updated to version 1.23. I tried my best to use the angle parameters to enhance the flyby sounds, and there are also another few small changes - read the readme for more info. S!
