    Some Decent Sound Effects

    When i play alot of FPS games i notice that the weapons dont have alot of 'kick' (in the way of sound) when u fire. Ive been playing games like Breed and Doom 3 (just 2 examples) and the guns have almost a smooth sound to them, I think ASI needs guns that have some decent bass or watever it is that makes the guns sound so beautiful. One example of a GOOD gun sound is in Quake 4 using the machine gun - that one is pretty good.

    I think the GL has a solid thump on detonation, not to mention the mission-ending, cascading rumble of a T75-whammy-surprise.

    Sounds to me your problem is your 2.0 speaker system(no sub woofer)

    i have a Creative I-trigue 3400 2.1

    i realised Doom 3 does have a decent sound effect on 1 of the guns which is also the machine gun like in Quake 4 but the others arent as good (the shottie is too soft for such a big gun)

    Ofcourse ive never played alien swarm for UT 04 so im not sure of what the sound effects are like on that game.

    Why not make all the sounds using a pc speaker in a bathroom! Nothing sounds better than a 486 in a shower.
    ..it's safer here.

    I agree with Nokturnal, doom 3 guns weren't fun at all to fire and I believe it had a lot to do with the really lame sound effects. The whole fighting part felt kind of slow and primitive tbh, but the atmosphere and ambient sounds were cool (or was that RoE maybe?).

    Quake 4 was mouthwatering audio wise, now that had some crisp, punchy and exciting effects. I was kissing my X-fi and Sennheiser HD 555 junior audiophile headphones all the way through it (except during extreme boredom attacks).

    I don't think state of the art sounds are of too much importance in a game like swarm. But it would of course be beautiful with super crisp effects and truly chilling ambience. It's gonna be a lot of fun to see what BCGs audionuts have come up with.
