Sound with strange cracking noise

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

 

I was about to do some stuff with voices so as usual cfgSounds and all that stuff...

The unit say the sound / voice but some of them have strange noise like idk how to explain it...

 

The sounds have some strange cracking / electronic noise in it?

 

If i listen to them in Winamp everything is fine those cracking noises only happen if i use them in ARMA with a unit and say command!

 

Some 1 knows whats wrong?

Thanks guys much appreciated! 😊👍

 

B.t.w. the sounds are .wss from OFP!

So there might be something wrong with sample / bit rate?

 

Hmm... Idk... 😕

Can't hear issues in the video, on my plebby speakers.. So not the issue I'm thinking of.

It kind of stretch the sound somehow...

So there is some kind of micro stuttering in it that makes it sound weird.

 

Anyway... Thx for the quick reply! 👍

I think that is the likely culprit right there. Old .wss files with a crap low-quality bit-rate and them not gelling well with ArmA3's updated audio setup.

You could try converting the .wss files to another format and then perhaps convert them back with different settings and see if that helps.

Yes this is exactly what i was thinking to do! 👍

 

The .wss have 353kbps while the BIS .ogg have 96kbps only!

 

Was not sure if it's because of the .ogg compression... But now that you say this too i will test it!

 

Many thx! 😉

 

Edit:

I was thinking exactly the other way around cuz the .wss have much higher bitrate!

So may the too high bitrate of the old OFP .wss could cause the stuttering?

Well found it...

 

It was fault of .lip files for whatever reason... 🤪

After deleting all the .lip files all sounds play well...

 

Another day in paradise... 😪

I'm glad you fixed the problem. I wouldn't have even thought to remove the .lip files.

It was my very last attempt bevor giving up on it after like trying and testing for 7 days... 😄

 

This game... Sometimes... 😵🤪

 

Thx! 😉

Yes me too already put a lot of work into all the configs and scripts so would be a shame if all that would have been wasted!
