External sound files are not being played correctly - high frequency distortion
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Custom sounds added to a mission that play with perfect fidelity in external audio tools - are badly distorted in game. Particularly higher frequency sounds seem to be distorted. Mid range sounds seem fine <2500 Hz. Sounds in the 2500 - 10000 Hz range seem to have the greatest distortion.

This strange issue seems to relate to the pathing issue mentioned in ticket 0020349 and the resetting of the launcher to defaults - i.e. clearing all settings in the launcher including addons. After resetting the launcher to defaults the sound issue seems to have been resolved.(?!) This ticket can be closed.
