Helo noise...


Another noobish (if hopefully not too knobbish) question:

Sat in a helo door seat while being ferried around and the noise completely drowned out everything, even with earplugs in.

Is that a standard realism feature (helos do make noise after all), an Arma bug, or a
feature to torture Bohemia customers?

I remember having a similar problem with a tank turret traverse sound back in Arma2; the volume was cranked up so much it was virtually impossible to play as gunner.

Cheers...

Each Javelin round costs $80,000, and the idea that it's fired by a guy who doesn't make that in a year at a guy who doesn't make that in a lifetime is somehow so outrageous it almost makes the war seem winnable.

That is ArmA 3 for you. ;-)

To be fair those vehicles to make a lot of noise in real life too. Even when you sit in a small plane like a Cessna you wear headphones to block out the noise (a bit) and being able to communicate to other people via those headsets. Now take into account that a Cessna has relatively small engine and rotor.

There is no war to end all wars.

Yeah, thought so. Would have been nice if they had considered turning the volume down to ‘simulate’ aircraft headphones, but I guess that’s one of the many reasons why the series isn’t known for being easy on its acolytes...

To be fair, only aircrew get Ear Defenders. Not your standard grunt in the back.

Just turn down in game sounds. Many people start with this at about 15% and then mess with Teamspeak and master PC volume to get the right mix.

Now THAT was good advice. Practiced some piloting yesterday and couldn’t hear the radio calls at all until I followed your suggestion...cheers again!
