Description

This seems to have been addresses a couple of versions ago, but it actually caused this issue. For most people that I have talked to, this issue was not present before it has been addressed.

As of today, some footstep sounds are played behind the player, which makes it sound like someone is chasing you. Especially on Tanoa this can be easily reproduced while running through the jungle. Can upload a video if needed.

Saw this ticket here which the same report, which has been closed due to inactivity, but problem is present as of today in vanilla Arma.

Hello.

A video would be nice. Since we do not have all of the headsets that can be used I will try to at least simulate your settings., so could you please send me your headset settings?

Feary It was meant for ExileMod.

You have a Logitech, good that might help we use Logitech G430.

Do you have Logitech Gaming software installed?

Been only forwarding the issue, since I constantly hear people complaining about it and we also watch a lot of Twitch streams where this issue is present. Tried to get more people to upload specs and a video, but without luck so far.

Here is a video I just made. The footsteps sound like they are played right below the player, as it should be. At least on this surface type. But I think what feels so odd is that the collision sound with the foliage stays at the same position, making it sound like it is behind you. Well, because it actually is:

Does that point you into the right direction?

Uploaded a second one. This time it is the regular ground clutter sounds played "behind":

Whenever I try to load the links with the videos YT says that "This video is unavailable".

What about now?
