Aint modding a bitch? :) No seriuosly Ghost dont give up. I made a sound mod YEARS ago for inflight music and there was a program to convert the sounds to IL2. I took a bunch of music from Sub Hunter and put them in IL2 but for the life of me I cant remember what the name of the program was. Anyway, dont give up. WHEN you get this working, you will be very happy and proud and then you will want to do more.
Chin up and keep fighting.

Its easy.
You need proper format, location and filename.

Format is 44100khz mono wav. Use audacity portable for conversion (free software). But imho the game will play most wav formats regardless bitrate.

Location could be #DBW/Mynewgunsounds/Samples/

The filename can be indenified from the sfs extractors filelist.txt.
In this case theyre:
samples\MGunMK108s.wav
samples\MGunMK108si.wav
but if you extract and modify their preset file (presets\sounds\weapon.MGunMK108s.prs) you can change the wav names to anything.
You should also check out this "SAS Gunsound Reference Pack for Soundmodders"

Jiver67: Two Sony speakers and a music system, through a real teck in built audio card in my motherboard, or did you want the program? Audacity and WavoSour.

Bombsaway: That's what they all say! D: Thanks for your support, as for your post, if I do get it working you MUST DOWNLOAD AND USE IT.

Vp: Gonna give it a shot (now drunk lolz). Lets all hope this does it.

Drum roll until my next post :3

Audacity! Thanks VP. That was the program.

Do you have UV3 (Tigers sound mod) installed?
Plus what modpack are you using?
I should have asked these questions first  :-[

Ultra Pack 3
No, but sounds interesting (UV3 that is)

It should be mentioned here in prev posts...

I'm pretty sure that UltraPack3 uses stock sound so the sample names will be different than in DBW. Try MG_77.wav & MG_77i.wav (wild guess).

Ghost, in addition to Fly's suggestion you will want to check your in-game sound settings under "Hardware Setup", "Sound Setup", "Audio Quality". Make sure the "Audio Quality" setting matches the frequency of your sounds, although I would recommend you leave this at 22 KHz for best compatibility with the majority of sound mods.

If you are still having trouble send me a private message and I would be willing to remote in to your PC using TeamViewer and get this figured out.

I love you all.

IT WORKS!!!! :D Finally! I can almost ftfo. (Flip the f*** out)
*Runs into a wall, ko-ed*

So yeah, got my custom Engine and guns working! Thanks to all who helped, especially: Fly! who converted my sounds...

Hmm, what next? All Jane's WWII fighter sounds to Il-2? I dunno, it's one of those moments when something f***'s your mind, and you complete it, and your whole life is over and you don't know what to do with it, anyways, long story short, f*** yeah, it works.

Now, get to downloading it! its too late to upload, way past bed time, and I've got my last second term exam tomorrow... Sigh..

But this was totally awesome, I saw what all you had posted (and removed, thats you but I thank you still later in final post) and it actually helped, i went through the original fb.sfs stuff, up.sfs stuff and the sound mod guide and found it useful,but better, I use notepad++, and its awesome, open up all prs files, search for "Mg_68" found in document: bla bla bla.prs. AMAZING.

Over-reaction maybe? No way, just another sweet victory!!!
Thank you all once again! This is not the last you'll see of my "Help meh!" posts ;)

Ghost.
