  • Features
    Added OpenAL support. Multiple (5.1) speakers may produce surrounding sound.
    Improved loadout for Hind. Loadout is displayed correctly now (by dfang). Hind may carry
    • Missiles (Sturm) on wingtip and outer pylons
    • Rockets (S-5, S-8, S-13) on inner and outer pylons
    • Gun pods (UPK) on inner and outer pylons

  • Canopy sounds amplification control.
    There are groups of sound effects
    • Rotor of player's helicopter
    • Rotor of other helicopters
    • Engine of player's helicopter
    • Engine of other helicopters
    • Misc of player's helicopter (gears, for example)
    • Misc of other helicopters
    • Guns
    • Environmental sounds

  • Each group has three numbers associated used to calculate sound effect volume amplification:
    amplification = first / 100 + bound(canopy_door_state, 0, second) * third / 10000, where
    canopy_door_state varies from 0 (fully closed) to 100 (totally open)
    bound(x,y,z) produces y if x less than y, or z, if x greater than z, or x otherwise
    Check canopy_sounds_amp in Sounds section of EECH.INI
  • Bug fixes
    Turned on cgs (comms guaranteed send) by default
    Removed demand for slash for command-line arguments


Installer
1.12/1.12.1/1.12.2 must be installed before.

02MAR10 2300 UTC - 1.12.3 has been rereleased. Please download again.

Update

You may need OpenAL installer for Windows as well

Bug List from my end-

* When I installed I deleted the eech.ini and game.cfg then applied the update. My system passed the video test, but when I tried to select my default resolution 1680x1050 the game would CTD. I restored my old game.cfg and things were fixed

* I selected Realistic Engine Startup hoping that the ARNEH startup sounds had been fixed with this update. I still cant confirm this as with RES enabled, I cannot start HUD, or MFD's, nor Fire the APU. MFD's are live in CPG pit but startup items are still not availlable.

* In the Options screen in the sound section, I only have a "software" option as my sound card is not detected(SoundMax Integrated HD Audio)that is a PCI card on my ASUS MB.

Note- backup your game.cfg before trying this update.

Did anybody else experiance these issues?

Great!

Does this fix the missing export data to shared memory probelm that has been in all the version since 1.8.5 although it still says that is available in EECH central ?

Cheers,

Andy

Potentially fixed. Please try again.

I can say nothing about RES functionality now. Sounds control has been added.

Detection has been changed. Please try again.

All fixed now for me, except Realistic Engine Startup, which ive had to disable. Thanks for the hotfix and all the work you put in Firebird smile

FireBird

Ref the output of stuff from the CommServer - I have produced a couple of standalone instruments that can either be run on the local machine or across the network...

If anyone wants a copy (of the VB6 code or just the EXEs) drop me a PM and I will zip them up and send them off. Both dials work fine on XP, however with Vista they do need a DLL dropping into one of the System folders. I will have a scout round and see if there is a Microsoft patch that installs the required DLL.

The realistic start up still functions, the problem is the CTRL and ALT keys on the right side of the keyboard are disabled. The left side keys still work, although its a little awkward.

Im not sure i understand xyz either. Could you give an example of how you would make sound louder with cockpit door closed please, lets say with the first value 75,20,375.

Does this mean the missing/muted sounds are back???

The APU, and Gear is there, The engines firing up is still barely audible if your in the Apache, in the Commanche with cockpit door open its there. The sound which you hear when inputing collective(perhaps load on rotors?) is still barely audible.

Whether this can be corrected by these values i dont know as I have not figured out how these values influence the sounds I just refered to. (I know you explained it Firebird, but its still q=deltaT to me, sorry)

Completely.

Well. Let's start from the beginning.
amplification = first/100 + bound(door,0,second)*third/10000.

When the door is closed, the "door" = 0. Thus bound(door,0,second)=0. It means
amplification = first/100. The "first" is a volume level in per cents for the sound when the door is closed.

Let's assume the "second" and the "third" are positives (I doubt we want them negative).

When the door is opening, the "door" is increasing, and amplification is increasing too.
The "second" is a limitation of the increase, when door reaches the "second" level of opening and continues to open, amplification stops increasing. That's because "bound" limits it value by the "second".

How fast amplification increases when it increases? The "third" rules it.

Now, a simple example. We want a sound to have 30% when the door is closed and 120% when it is open for more than 50%.
first = 30, it's easy.
30 / 100 + 50 * third / 10000 = 120 / 100 - right?
50 * third / 100 = 90
third = 180.

Therefore amplification = 30 / 100 + bound(door, 0, 50) * 180 / 10000.
And we can calculate amplification for any door's position.

I hope it's clear enough? wink

Ok I think I get it now-

1. The "first" is a volume level in per cents for the sound when the door is closed

2. The "second" is a limitation of the increase, when door reaches the "second" level of opening and continues to open, amplification stops increasing

3. How fast amplification increases when it increases? The "third" rules it.

Forgive me if Im being annoying, but how do these values influence volumes levels on other aircraft apart from the Commanche and KA52 that have a cockpit door that opens? Or have I missed something again?

You're not annoying in any way.
Hind supports those values too.
Others have their doors closed.
