Andy's Sounds UPDATE
By Andy73 in Modding Tools and Add-on SoftwareGentlemen
Here's my newest Sound-Mod Version 3.3. This is as always the full Version, including my previous Mod. You can delete the old Version 3.2! This Mod includes an Update for InGame Sounds, for my Soundtrack Mod and for the Engine-Sounds. Please read the ReadMe for some Details.
This Package is JSGME-ready. It contains THREE SEPARATE Mods, please unzip ALL three Mods into your JSGME-Mods Folder and activate all three. If JSGME wants to overwrite something, just click Yes and ignore all Warnings. It should work without Problems!
Many things are new:
-Twoseaters now have three different Engine Sounds
-New Engine Sounds for some Scouts
-New Machinegun Sounds
-Added new Explosions
-Fixed Distances for Front-Ambience
-Fokker Dr1 and Fokker EV with new Engine Sounds!
-Added new Songs and Battle Effects to my Soundtrack Mod
I've changed nearly everything, especially the Distances for Engines and Machineguns. It is now harder to hear an Enemy Scout. If he is flying very close to you, you will hear his Engine and his Machineguns. This is realistic.
Explosions are no longer too loud when you are flying high. Fixed that Problem.
Thanks to OBD Software for using and tweaking some of their Stuff. Samples were used by different Sources, some are my own Creations, some were "remixed" from other Games. Of course you have Permission to use and tweak this Stuff for your own Experience...
This is definately my last Update on Phase 3. We are all waiting for WOFF, so I think my Job on Phase 3 is done
New Tracer Colors
By Andy73 in Scenery and Ground ObjectsHello Folks,
I've created a small but funny Mod, you can now choose between different Colors for your Tracer-Ammunition.
You can choose between red, blue and green Tracers. I've also made a new "Smoother Tracer", which makes the Standard Yellow Tracer a little bit softer.
This Mod is not historically accurrate. NOTE, that every other Plane in OFF will use the same Color of your Choice, too...
Simply install it into JSGME and activate your Color.
Please read the Disclaimer!!!!!!

New OFF Campaign Music
By Andy73 in Modding Tools and Add-on SoftwareHi Folks
I have been active once again as a Sound Tinkerer, this time it is about the Campaign Menu of our all favourite Game. Not because I do not like Matt Milne's fantastic Soundtrack (I really LOVE it!). I thought only, after 3 years it would be a time for something New. I have taken different Soundtracks from different Movies, mixed them in a different way, in addition some new Samples (Explosions) to form the whole Game a little more freshly. For example, I took some Tracks from the Soundtrack of the Movie "The Red Baron". Even if the Movie itself is only an average, I find the Soundtrack, nevertheless, exceedingly successful! And when you start a Campaign, you will now hear new heavy Artillery Fire, when there's an active Battle in your Sector.
I do not pursue unauthorised duplication here, because I have taken as a precaution NOT complete Songs, but cuttings (parts) in each case long only 2-3 minutes from it. This might be probably within the scope of the permissible (I hope so). I lift on it respectedly that the respective pieces also do not exaggerate the Ambience of the Game, and the Atmosphere of the Campaign, nevertheless, is preserved.
The Original Theme of the Game was not altered!
I know everybody has another taste Music concerns, but I like the Choice, actually, very well
The Sound Mod is JSGME - ready. Simply extract the Package into your Mods Folder and activate it. I hope you'll enjoy the Songs as much as I do !
Sound Tweak 3 + Engines
By Andy73 in Modding Tools and Add-on SoftwareHello Folks
As promised here are my final Versions of my different Sound Mods. They are JSGME-Ready, just unzip both Downloads to your MODS-Folder at your OFF-Installation. Let them overwrite everything, ignore all Warnings! Now it should work!
The good News: You do not need any longer all of my previous Mods, you can delete them all. These two Packages include ALL of my Work, plus the new Sound Tweak III. Previous Mods are not neccessary!!! You will also do not need Creaghorn's Sound Tweak II any longer, of course you can use it, if you like.
I've worked very long on this, and I hope you all enjoy this as much as I do!
What's new in this Mod?
1. New Sounds for the SE5a Viper and the German Albatros-Series. I've returned back to Creaghorn's Mercedes Engines, they are much better than mine. But I've changed the Exterior Sounds and the Startup Sequence.
2. New Explosions. You will now hear new FLAK, New Ground Explosions and new Frontambience. Before you start your Engine, listen to the "Thunder" in the Background
3. New "Whistle" Sounds when you drop a Bomb
4. New "Screams" when a Pilot is wounded (more scary)
5. New Bullet hit Sounds. Some Bullets will now scratch sometimes on Metal.
6. New Exterior Engine Sounds for the Sopwith-Series, Nieuport-Series, Spad and SE5-Series, Fokker and Albatros-Series, and some Two-Seaters.
7. Some new Gun Sounds for Aircraft. I like them!
8. New Ground Gunnery Machineguns.
I've used some Samples from old Sound Tweak II and also the XML-File Creaghorn modified some Years ago. Thank you for that!
Thanks to PANAMA RED and OLPAINT for helping me converting my Files! You helped me very much

Have Fun, Andy :sohappy:

Sound Upgrade for Rotary Engines
By Andy73 in Aircraft ModelsHi
As promised, here's my Update for almost all Planes in OFF with Rotary Engines. New Startup and Shutdown Sequences included. These Startup Sequences are NOT included in Olpaint's JSGME Version, but you can install and use them very easily.
Installation is easy. Let's say for Example you want to upgrade the Sopwith Camel. Open your OFF Installation. Then got to:
Aircraft / Camel_sqd / Sound
Simply copy the new Samples into this Sound Folder. Overwrite the old ones. Please make it the same way with all other Planes from this Download.
Thanks to OBD Software for the Original Stuff.
New Sound for German Fighters
By Andy73 in Aircraft ModelsHello
after working a few Hours on the Configuration of the Albatros DIII, I've made now some new Sounds for the German Fighters. I don't know if you like it, some of you might now think that it sounds like a Cessna
I know the Sounds are not historically accurate, bur I simply like them.
These new Sounds replace the Halberstadt DII, the Albatros-Series, the Pfalz and the Roland CII .
New Startup Sequence and Exterior Sounds included.
Simply copy the Sound-Folder into "Aircraft / Alb_DIII_early_Sqd". Backup first, if you don't like it.
Have Fun, Andy
My new Sound Mod...
By Andy73 in Aircraft ModelsHello Folks,
as promised, here's my new Sound Mod. New Engines for a lot of Planes.
I've tried to resample the Mercedes-Engine for the German Fighters, but had no luck. I've found nothing that fits perfect. But perhaps this one will come too next time...
Installation is not difficult, please read the "ReadMe".
Thanks to OBD Software for the Original Samples and for this wonderful Game!
Have Fun, Andy
New Engine Sounds
By Andy73 in Modding Tools and Add-on SoftwareNOTE: This Sound-Mod contains two Folders: One for the users of Creaghorn's SOUND TWEAK II and one for the users of "normal" OFF Sound !!!
This Mod changes some of the external Sounds for AI-Plane Engines. And ONLY the AI-Planes! All Samples are in High Quality
Step 1: FIRST OF ALL BACKUP YOUR SOUND-FOLDER FROM YOUR OFF INSTALLATION !!! If you want to change it back later.
Step 2: Download and choose your Folder.
Step 3: Unpack the Files and copy them into your Sound Folder from your OFF Installation. Allow to overwrite the old Ones.
All Samples are collected by myself from various Sources.
Sorry for my bad English.
Have Fun with new Sounds in the Sky
