New flap sounds from Expansion Pack 3
« on: February 24, 2017, 06:34:43 PM »

Dear SAS Community,

First of all a BIG THANK YOU to all. BAT is really a big step forward.

I'm having a bit of a hard time adjusting to the new "Flap lowering/raising" sounds introduced in Expansion Pack 3.
Somehow the high pitched electric whine just feels strange to me.

Could someone please point me to the location of this sound file so I can disable/tweak with it?
I tried searching in #WAW2\Classes-Sound\samples, but couldn't find it.

Thanks!
S!

Thanks vpmedia!

I have identified the flap sound files:
e_dev04.wav
e_dev05_2.wav
e_dev05_21.wav
-e_dev05_21.wav

But somehow deleting them doesn't do anything. The game still plays those damn flap sounds!  o_O
I'm confused...

Tried replacing the sound files... still doesn't work.
Oh well, I guess I'll get used to the flap sounds one day  ;D

I dont have BAT so I can't investigate. First thing to make sure is that you dont have a second sample loaded before the one you're trying to modify. Just do a filesearch in the mods folder (#WAW) for 'e_dev*.wav', you can also look for a second aircraft.misc.prs loading a different sample.

SUCCESS! Consider it solved!

I took another look at the file #WAW2\Classes-Sound\presets\sounds\aircraft.misc.prs
I found that the e_flaps section was pointing at Flaps.wav, which I could not locate anywhere in the game folders  :-| :

[e_flaps]
file     Flaps.wav
infinite 1
controls env

So I changed that to:

[e_flaps]
file     e_dev_05_21.wav
env  8
value 30.0
infinite 1
controls env

And it finally worked!! Thank you VP for the tips.
Funny, by default the TGA and DOF modules were pointing to the correct e_dev_05_21.wav file, not sure why WAW was set to Flaps.wav in Expansion Pack 3.
