Assault Gunboat and Missile board would use HyperStartImp, if we are to go by TIE Fighter game.

And while we are at it, we would probably have to add the shuttles (lambda class and delta-class), too, because if we go by that, the HyperStartImp noise would probably be a "signature" of Cygnus-made and SFS-made hyperdrives, which the shuttles are also using (and the "HyperStartImp" and the "HyperZoomImp" combo being a signature of when you have the TIEs ion engines with it)

Is there any way to get an updated laser and engine sound ? I wanted to play XWAU but the generic sounds are so bland.

Hi Jeremy,

Please excuse me if I enter in this post.

I see you have created a sound hook.

For your opinion is possible add a file audio (wav) Logger ?

To be honest I like to add the Force Feedback support to Xwing vs tie figher and this log can be very useful to intercept externally all events.

Thanks !

Hello,
I don't know if it is easy or not to add that for XvT.

None of those files are supported or made by the XWA Upgrade. The choice is yours which to get.
I recommend choosing this option for now.

As I mentioned earlier I am working a new 2020 Sound Upgrade which will be out asap
Follow this thread below or my Forum sections for more. Thanks

UPDATE

Hello,
I've updated the engine sound hook.

I've added a EngineSoundTakeOff setting.

Suppose that the craft is "FlightModels\[Model].opt".
To define which sound is played, create a file named "FlightModels\[Model]Sound.txt" or create a section named "[Sound]" in "FlightModels\[Model].ini".

Add a line with "EngineSoundTakeOff = value". The value is between 1 and 2:
- 1 means LandingGearUp
- 2 means MfTakeOff

If the file does not exist, default values are used:

type 2:
- ModelIndex_058_0_45_CorellianTransport2
- ModelIndex_059_0_46_MilleniumFalcon2
- ModelIndex_065_0_52_FamilyTransport

type 1:
other crafts

UPDATE

Hello,
I've updated the engine sound hook.

I've added support for custom sounds.

For Interior sounds, when the type is 0, sounds defined in "Wave\Sfx_Interior.lst" are used if the lst file exists. The sounds are indexed by the crafts model index.
For FlyBy sounds, when the type is 0, sounds defined in "Wave\Sfx_FlyBy.lst" are used if the lst file exists. The sounds are indexed by the crafts model index.
For EngineWash sounds, when the type is 0, sounds defined in "Wave\Sfx_EngineWash.lst" are used if the lst file exists. The sounds are indexed by the crafts model index.

For weapon sounds, when the behavior is empty, sounds defined in "Wave\Sfx_Weapon.lst" are used if the lst file exists.
For each craft, there are 10 items. The last item is for the open weapon.

To setup Sfx_EngineWash, copy the following files to WAVE\Sfx_EngineWash\
From WAVE\FE_HIGH_RES\
Copy files:
EngineWash.wav
EngineWashSD.wav

To setup Sfx_FlyBy, copy the following files to WAVE\Sfx_FlyBy\
From WAVE\FE_HIGH_RES\
Copy files:
FlyByAG.wav
FlyByAW.wav

FlyByTI.wav
FlyByXW.wav
