An update to the Sound Overhaul mod. As the name suggests, most sounds are tweaked or outright replaced. See full details for the list of changes.
#========S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Sound overhaul 1.07========#
#======== ----------------by: Darius6----------------- ========#
-Replaces nearly all all weapon sounds.
-Tweaked silencer values.
-Specific silecer sounds for most guns. These are by default made for vanilla Stalker, so
if you want to use mods that tweak the weapon ltx's, you'll need to merge the sound part
from the ltx's included in this mod.
-New ambient sounds (spooky night sounds, crickets, etc..)
-New thunder sounds.
-New anomaly sounds.
-New interface sounds: Inventory, pda messages, detector, geiger counter, etc.
-New bullet sounds: Impact and fly-by.
-Integrated parts of annoying audio fix: No more "hello hello" at Yantar or "come in, don't just stand there" at the Bar...
-Replaced the "on alert" heavy breathing for npc's to a equipment clatter. (Thanks to johnnythewolf for the idea)
-New main menu music.
-Lot's of other little things.
All sounds are properly OGG-commented to prevent any issues.
Drag the gamedata folder from the rar to your stalker main install folder.
USING WITH ALREADY MODDED WEAPON LTX'S:
If you already have a mod that alters the weapon files (mostly gamedata\config\weapons)
and you want to use these sounds, here's how to do it:
(Using the w_ak74.ltx as an example)
-Open the *.ltx with notepad.
-The lines that specify which sounds are used by the specific weapon are these:
Copy the lines from this mods ltx's, specifically the values after the "=" sign.
Also, this is alot easier when using winMerge, a program that can compare two files and
spot the diffrences and also merge them.
