  1. Hello BSG! In case you all are not 100% satisfied with the results you're getting with Steam Audio, Microsoft's Project Acoustics may be an alternative to consider. Its main selling point is that it's very friendly to existing projects and allows "wave form" sound propagation with low resource overhead. Supposedly it calculates the sound "map" straight from the geometry without requiring any zones/planes to be added in by the map maker. Instead, the map maker "tags" parts of the map with a certain material type and then everything else is handled from there. From what I can tell, the map is analyzed in the Azure Cloud and then sent back to the developer to package with the asset. Meaning the turn-around times can be very fast. It seems to do all the things that Steam Audio can do (and maybe even a bit more?) Obstruction Portaling Occlusion Reverberance Decay Time It says it is compatible with Unity3d. Here are some demonstration videos I found that may be of use: (time-stamped @ 1:33) GDC Conference Presentation Demo 1 by MDA Digital Demo 2 by MDA Digital And here's the github link: https://github.com/microsoft/ProjectAcoustics Thank you all for your hard work, all the best!
  2. I never experienced a game that has some of the most crisp audio along with the most confusing. I'm aware that this game has audio problems in terms of above and below, shooting inside building etc... But my problem is with shots within 50 meters of me. It sounds ubiquitous. Often times I find myself spinning in circles to hear from a different angle and it all sounds like it could be from any direction. I'm using the Arctis 7 headset. I know there are many different customization sliders and options available so I was thinking that maybe the problem lies there. I've attached a snippet of the headset settings. Are there any options that I have checked off that could be contributing to this? What about using DTS Sound Unbound?
  3. Before I start, I know the game has history with audio difficulties. This is not one of those issues. Earlier today I downloaded Steel Series GG, the program used to calibrate Arctis 7s -Steel Series Headphones. After downloading I started a raid and realized that all my spatial audio had disappeared. I can no longer hear the direction where gun shots are coming from, where foot steps are coming from, and the weather and breathing of my PMC seems incredibly louder than it used to be. I have tried everything from switching my default audio to the Game version of the headset, to factory resetting my headset. My sound setting in Tarkov have not changed, I cannot figure out what to do to fix the issue. Please, if anyone has experience in Arctis 7 and Escape from Tarkov or can show me their settings in Steel Series GG so I can fix my spatial audio that would be greatly appreciated.
  4. Okay my problem is this. I have really nice headphones and I use a sound card(seperate one) to play, but when I play the game usually the sounds suggest that an player or scav is right to me. Although they're o n another level of the building. Something similar happens when I try to determine where the sound is coming from and how far is it I do not succeed. I use the same tactics (at sound level) to play Battlefield 1 and everything is fine. Also I found my first chest armor!!! Exiting times. I use BeyerDynamics DT990 Pro 250 ohm Edition. The sound card is Sound Blaster Z.

    Music IN RAID

    Unfortunately I didn't have my replay buffer on but I swear on my life I was running around in factory and I was cleaning up scavs when around 9 mins left in raid I heard background music. Not like it was coming from a speaker in the map but as if I had pandora on. It sounded like geneburn music style. It was just a short 10 second long music sting then it ended, like I accomplished something. I had nothing else going on in the background that could've played anything. Am I going crazy?
  6. Hola, me he comprado unos auriculares Razer Nari Ultimate. En el software de razer puede activar el sonido por THX, y despues de activar o desactivar eso puedes poner los programas en estereo, envolvente o THX competitivo en el caso de tarkov. El problema es que cambie lo que cambie no se con solo el sonido saber de donde vienen los disparos, pasos, etc. Alguien sabe que puedo hacer?

    Kein Sound mehr seit 12.10

    Hallo zusammen, Ich habe seit dem Update auf 12.10 das Problem, dass das Spiel gar keinen Sound mehr von sich gibt. Außerhalb von EFT funktioniert alles fehlerfrei. Habe es bereits mit und auch ohne das neue steam-audio ausprobiert. Mittlerweile habe Ich alles bereits de- und anschließend wieder installiert. Dasselbe gilt auch für sämtliche Audiogeräte. Die Treiber sind ebenfalls auf dem neuesten Stand. Hatte jemand dasselbe Problem oder sonst eine Idee wie Ich das Problem gelöst bekomme?

    Piccoli glitch post patch

    Sto notando dei piccoli glitch apparsi dopo la recente patch, fondamentalmente sono due, dei lampi di luce casuali, di questi ne ho sperimentati 2 tipi, uno dei quali, lo avevo già notato prima, ma, con minor frequenza, questo glitch è dato dalla presenza di "lampi" in giro per la mappa, come se ci fossero delle esplosioni di luce diffusa circoscritte, il secondo, che ho sperimentato solo post patch è dato da lampi di luce, ma, diretti al PG, come se qualcuno ti puntasse o un laser o una torcia molto forte in faccia, i glitch di luce hanno luogo sia in pieno giorno che all'alba ed al tramonto, non saprei dire se avvengono anche di notte, dato che, preferisco gli orari di luce. Il secondo glitch è sonoro, anzi, per essere più preciso "vocale", sento sovente le voci degli scav come se mi fossero a 1/2 mt intorno a me, il fatto è che spostandomi, cambia la percezione della fonte sonora, come se ci fosse realmente un npc o un pg in un punto fisso, questo dura qualche frazione di secondo e non è così frequente, ma, può inficiare la buona riuscita partita. Nelle patch note, non ho capito se la possibilità di fare la matrioska di zaini direttamente nella videata di trasferimento scav/stash sia stata tolta, ma, non si possono più trasferire oggetti dalla stash allo scav. Un'ultima cosa, ci sono dei folding stock, che nella descrizione sono ripiegabili, ma, che ne in mappa ne in stash/inventario sono effettivamente ripiegabili, volevo, se possibile sapere se è un errore del mio client, o se devono ancora venire implemetnati. Ah, gioco praticamente solo sul Customs, i glitch li ho rilevati li. Grazie a tutti e buon lavoro.
  9. So after a while of weird and funny encounters i came to the conclusion that the sound distance at which silenced gunshots can be heard are just broken. Sure silencers need to be useful, but it‘s absurd when i and 2 other people can’t hear the dude who’s shooting at us from under 100m, but only hear the impact of the bullets, or my PMC getting hurt. (Sometimes without any impact sound) It just seems extreme inconsistent and just broken overall. Kinda like if the sound just get‘s cut off if you cross a certain short distance. My friends confirm that too everytime. I once shot with a silenced M700 next to a friend at a distance of <50m on Woods too, and he didn’t hear anything. The thing is like i said before, that it basically mutes the sound at a fairly short to medium distance, even though it should only make it quiter. Maybe the sound reduction for silencers is just too high across the board, or maybe the sound reduction per meter (or whatever calculation its based on) is too abrupt? Maybe a combination of both? Or idk... a bug? I‘m not an expert. It feels broken to me, thats all i want to say with that. PS: You can hear the shells landing on the ground from a certain gun. And by that i mean at any distance, lol.

    Sound Bug

    has anyone had a sound bug where they cant hear footsteps? I was looting in a building and walked into a hall way and he was running towards me but the entire time i couldn't hear his footsteps. he was sprinting on wood and i was slow crouch walking so there was no way i wouldn't of heard him, i did also have a headset on too. Just wondering if anyone else has had this. This is also the first time it has happened to me

    Multi level footsteps and movement sounds

    Will there ever be multi level movement and other sounds? For example you are standing in a 3 story building on the second level and you would be able to distinguish if the sounds of other players are from the same level or below/above you? Or am i retarded and i just cant distinguish the different sounds? If not this should in my opinion have higher priority than new maps/expansions If already implemented should it be more distinguishable? Discuss
  12. Hello, started playing Tarkov awhile ago and I like using Voicemeter Banana to separate my discord/spotify/game volumes for when I stream so that I can mute and adjust them independently on the stream, e.g. Firefox/spotify set to VoiceMeter Aux Input, Discord set to Cable Input(VB-Audio Virtual Cable) and EFT set to VoiceMeter Input. As of right now whenever I launch the game there is no directional audio at all and it sounds sort of muffled. My current workaround for this is to go into the windows Sound Mixer options and switch Tarkov from (VM Input) to (VM Aux Input), then switch it back. After that the audio is perfect but I'd rather not have to do this every time I play the game if I don't have to, plus there's been many times where I forget about it until I'm in raid and have to go prone somewhere and switch it quickly lmao. Also yes Binaural sound is enabled. Has anyone else had this issue?
  13. Not sure if everyone is getting this, but we are taking damage from a player with absolutely not shot heard, from our entire squad. As in our squad will not hear shots at all but people die and a player has killed us. usually multiple damage times then death. Utter quiet while it happens. Anyone else get this?
  14. It´s happened to me several times that I hear a shot after my character already took damage and moaned. I want to know if this is normal for the game taking into account the bullet speed being faster than sound or if I may be having desync, packet loss or something wrong with my internet.
  15. Anyone use Voice Meeter banana to mix their audio for the game? if so what are yall's preferred settings

    Sounds in forests

    Add more sounds on areas covered with forest, like the sound when you step on a small dried out stick of wood that makes a cracking wood noise. The noises where you touch bushes are too similar to eachother add more varieties, make them more realistic [i think at the moment they are way to loud when touched, not every bush is dried out and super loud....]. Game definitely needs more sounds when in forest.

    Sound and Lighting

    Another death around midnight as someone was able to get within a few feet of me and blast me without me hearing a thing (with headset on). I was in an advantageous spot on interchange having just marked my last tanker on the west side of the map. Took out the light (I've got night vision on), waited about 20 seconds and moved closer to the last tanker. After sitting still the 30 seconds required after tagging the tanker I slow walk into the bush just east of tanker, head on a constant swivel, then 4 seconds later I get shot from behind with a suppressed gun sounding a few feet away from the direction I just came/cleared. I've watched several videos on the silent footsteps bug and not sure why these things are so difficult to fix. Sounds in general are amusing at best. Wood sounds as if all wood is hollow and you are wearing wooden boots and stomping your way around. Metal sounds as if all metal is thin sheet metal and is laying loosely on another piece of metal and you are stomping with each step. I used to build military training facilities with metal stairs very similar to many in the game and even when they are not installed, still lying on the ground, you could walk on them with nearly no sound (rubber construction boots on solid steel stairs are nearly silent). Grassy areas are fine, however it seems like near terrain covered in grass are patches of hard gravel that has that rather loud crunching/grinding. I'm sure this exists, just nowhere I've visited. I don't think I need to tell everyone how terrible the lighting is and how incredibly unrealistic it is. There is no incidence of diffusion reflections. In the real world, sunlight coming through skylights more than lights up an entire mall. I am unsure as to how/why the lighting decision was done in this fashion. I do not pretend to know a lot about lighting as my only experience was building maps for half life back in the day, but even with those simple hammer editor I was able to create a more realistic light in warehouses without their own light source (intentionally darker places but not blackout). Then there is the flashlight at night, holy crap is it garbage. I have tried several different settings and still its like the white light from the flashlight is more of a solid object more than an item that illuminates. The last time I tested the flashlight I was standing on the top of the ramp near power station on interchange. Using the flashlight to look down at the fence near the truck everything was so bleached out that I could barley see my buddy standing against the fence. It was more like the light was a curtain of white. Anyway, end of rant. Ill be back tomorrow lol

    music soundtracks

    Hello folks, I don't know if off-topic forum is correct for this topic. Anyway, (This topic is about music soundtracks). In the Prepare For Escape'-esque themes in the main menu music for example "Dark Horizon" and many more in the near future and until it is forthcoming i.e. Releasing etc. Will the all of the music tracks come onto like Spotify, iTunes (others streaming platforms of music) after the game been released? feel free to comment

    Sound Problem ?

    Hey liebe EFT-Community. Ich habe festgestellt, dass seit 12.6 (Wipe) der Sound bei mir wenn ich crouche (in der hocke) schleiche (der Lautsprecher unten links ist auf leise) der Sound sich anhört als wäre er normal laut und ich mich quasi nur langsamer bewege. Ich habe das mit dem "normalen" Sound, Steam-Audio und diversen Headsets ausprobiert. Bin ich der einzige der sowas in der Art festgestellt hat? Bilde ich mir das vielleicht auch nur ein? Glaub ich eigentlich nicht ^^ Danke für Eure Hilfe !
  20. I have been dealing with this issue for a couple weeks now and am wondering if anyone else is too. When I start the game, I notice that all my customized settings are always reverted back to the games default setup. I have to keep inputting my custom graphics, sound, and controls in every time I play the game. It is becoming very frustrating since I had no problems with this when I first got the game in early January 2018. Yes I hit 'SAVE' every time I exit the settings. Once I do change the controls to how I play, they stay the whole time I have EFT open on my pc. Alt-Tab'ing does not revert my controls. Once I close the game and start it backup, the settings are reverted. I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling and that didn't work. Please help
  21. Is there any benefit for not wearing any kind of comtacs?

    Selectable Sound Device

    Hello, Recently I have decided to setup my OBS to record EFT gameplay. I like to setup different channels for different source, like Virtual Cable A (VB A) for the game, Virtual Cable B for discord etc. That allows me to easily tweak sound when processing the footage. But to my surprise, it is impossible for EFT. I'm using Sonic Studio 3 (ROG Strix B350-f motherboard) and it does not detect EFT as a sound source. Windows sounds does not see EFT as a sound by itself either. I have tried other means and it seems impossible to set custom sound device routing for EFT. The workaround I found is changing default device to given device, for example VB A, launching EFT (which sets default device as it's output device) and then switching back to previous default device, with EFT now playing on VB A. The issue with this is extra hassle I have to go through every time I want to launch the game and worsens overall experience. I would like to note that once VOIP is added, device routing in sound menu will be even more important. It would be really nice if an extra option in sound menu of choosing which device to use, for both input and output. Also I suspect you have "masked" the program so make sound hacks harder to create but a dedicated hacker will have no issues using the workaround and your "protection" only hinders normal users and content creators. Thank you for your time, Loyal player and supporter

    Sound Bug

    I have experienced this sound bug multiple times recently and am hoping for a fix or a patch =). I will attach the links to the two video clips i have taken thus far. I hope this gets recognized so it can be fixed! Thanks. Video 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8DSUi0hrVE&feature=youtu.be Video 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UreQ2kEX19U&feature=youtu.be
  24. Just wanna say, dont take me wrong. Its not a rant and om not mad. Tho im having a bit of a hard time understanding bsg view on how much of a importance a good soundsystem/design has for a game in this caliber. And recordings in general sounds so good that i feel current sound system maybe degrade them in some ways. Since i got the game iv waited and waited and waited for a decent audio system. It felt like a punch in my stomach when you "fixed" removed surround sound because it was bugged. I tough fixed meant my own sounds wouldnt play in my back speakers, but nope. Back to the good old flat stereo. Dont take me wrong, iv noticed you have done some changes to improve sounds, but am i wrong to say that we can all agree its still very bad. It was like a new game playing in factory, hearing people running on the top crane, at the same time hearing dude on 1 floor and 3 dude comming at me and i managed to kill him because i heard exactly where he was and distance he was from me. It took the game to a new level, even tho the surround was bugged, like my footsteps was playing in back speakers. Sound in this game has literally been the main cause of many death, sound tells me one thing, bullets tells the opposite. Dude with silencer hiding in a bush from maybe 1-10 meters, sounds says he is inside my character, inside my head. There is 0 depth to the sound, just flat with 0 helpful information. It literally sound like the shooter is inside my head while shooting at me from 2-10 meter from unknown direction in some circumstances. Iv experienced sound playing in opposite side of where pmc is coming from, more than once. Checked if i had my headphones opposite more than once. Luckily i haven't experienced this in some time, but directional sounds still lie and confuses me more then give me helpful information. Sound is still very odd and flat, and give little information vs what it would in real life and even comparing to other games. If experienced compacts not picking up players walking on wooden floor, or if i got a visual the sound system can be a sob. Not sure this is related tho, it could be a bug. Sometime they are dead silent while walking normal speed, and i hear the shot that kills me. Iv seen pmc sprinting thru bushes, wooden floor or metal from close range. Compacts cant pick them up at all. Vertical sounds, tho much better compared to alpha where it didnt exist (ignoring when i got to try the bugged surround before it got reverted) its not good. Same for depth. I playd the game long enugh so i can somewhat guess distance. But sound sucks at it in many circumstances. Also, sound design can be very odd. Tho, im assuming this will improve in the future when sound finally gets some love it should had gotten ages ago.. Like only a few sound types when walking on different surfaces, and when walking on some surfaces its so freak'n loud it sounds like im a dude wearing 100kg backpack while using tapping shoes. Rain, winds and nature related sounds. Recordings sounds great, tho it would be cool to hear some more sounds from wild life. Like birds, insects (maybe that could be modeled in, there are flowers ingame. Could be cool?) I was hoping for some info regarding steam audio or sound system in last podcast, i prayed for a video showing how the game could sound like with this system. But as use all, sound isnt interesting compared to pics of mods and armor. Nothing wrong with that. But Nikita (he or devs will probably never read this :P) would you be so kind to give us that enjoy good sound a taste of how steam audio can improve this game. Like a video with some action, if system is good enugh. Use nighttime, so sound becomes main attention. Or is the new soundsystem still so unfinished that a demonstration isnt possible? To anyone reading this, congrats. And if devs or the boss him self read this and respond. I will probably be shell shocked. And if its possible to see a video of steam audio in action, it would be very interesting. And as always, keep up the good work, game has come a long way since i bought it, except soundsystem.. 😎

    Environment sounds so high

    In this game environment sounds so high, - In rainy map sounds not like dynamic and giving same rain noise allways ... maybe in change indoors ... - Grass sounds so high and really distract the players (Grass noise = Gun shoot)
