DOOM 3: BFG Edition

DOOM 3: BFG Edition

Audio = Lame
No options to equalize sound effects and ambient sound? The drone of the background completely drowns out my weapons which are extremely quiet. No option for subtitles so I can barely understand what people are saying. The majority of my sound effects are the hum of machines in the background that wash over all the fighting. I can't even fix it with Doom 3 mods. What a bone head port..

I agree with this. The weapon sound-effects seem muffled and ineffective in conveying realistic (explosive, jarring) combat.

You can't turn off the music either.

yeah, i mean this particular issue turns the game unplayable for me. The gunfiring sounds so ridiculous that something must be done to it! Weapon sounds are actually much worse than in original doom 3. Nothing else to complain about, though!
I've been trying mods and console commands to change the weapon sounds, there's nothing to be done. Most of the console commands don't even work anymore. Why would you do this, ID

The sound is awful - when I remember how great the sound was in the ORIGINAL Doom 3...I don't know whether I can play it with such sound...I want a patch!
I'd play the original game but I don't have it anymore and I can't find it. I'd be happy with a console command that increases weapon volume but nothing works.

I wasn't so much bothered by weapon sounds as by the low audio logs compared to the loud ambient sound effects.

"Now, after I've recorded a couple of minutes of complaints about how crappy it is to work on Mars, I think I should mention the code for the nearest supply cabinet. The code is-" EXTREMELY LOUD AMBIENT SOUND "...end of log."
I've bandaided it by changing the audio equalizer in my control panel. I removed much of the bass and increased treble a bit, which clears up enough to hear weapons, but it also takes away from sound quality so it's a double edge. Hopefully someone makes a mod that balances these out.

I cant beleive the gun's sound effects were able to pass quality control and ACTUALLY RELEASED AS A FINISHED PRODUCT. I can just barely hear my guns near loud machinery or heavy action and music...I am completely dumbfounded that somthing so OBVIOUSLY horrible passed by SO MANY people un noticed that it has to be intentional. BUT WHY?

Overall I've been largely unimpressed with the sound and visuals as I have vanilla D3 and tot it up in my all time favourite games.

I don't normally play with headphones but its late here in the UK and I just played a bit of BFG and used my Asus Xonar panel to set it to analogue out/headphones (as i normally use SPDIF to an AV Amp), I also used the GX setting and ticked to output in PCM and ticked "Dolby Headphone". Its made a remarkable difference to the sound, audiologs are clear, weapons have more presence and the overall soundscape seems more dynamic.

This is a poor effort for ID software, I'm very disappointed with the overall presentation on PC, its not the ID I use to know...

Agreed. The poor audio ruins the BFG edition completely. Let's start a petition for a patch to address the audio quality !!
