Welp, I tried making some custom sound banks for the B194, but no matter what I do, replacing the example sound banks with my custom ones results in no vehicle sounds at all. I replaced the default (missing) sounds with mine and some of them had sound in Wwise, others were silent. Ingame, I couldn't even remotely hear any of them.

Has anyone here had any experience with Wwise and enough knowledge to explain to noobs like me how to do that? That's the only thing I couldn't even remotely figure out by myself :P

Hey devs it would be nice to get some answer for this. The example file is old, the example was made with old Wwise version, you can see the word guide is likely bit outdated etc.
Hundreds of times checking everything and still the game can't read any sounds made with Wwise.

Everything sounds nice in Wwise but when you generate SoundBanks, add them to the mod and edit the Engine Sounds BagFile, it just doesn't work.

This shouldn't be hard at all and I have a feeling that something is broken in the example files. Maybe broken because the Wwise version doesn't match or something. Or have you changed the engine sound structure completely?

I think it's a structure change that likely broke it.  I have also experimented with custom sounds in wwise and all I've ever gotten from wreckfest was silence.

On the topic of WWise, whenever I take the bb example and put some custom sounds into it, the custom sounds play like they're slowed down in wwise, even when the source file plays fine on windows media player.  I even tried cutting down the duration of the source files (outside of wwise), and it still plays like the playspeed is less than 100%.  This is most prevalent on the engine clips, which almost don't make a sound because in wwise, wwise plays them at what seems like 12% speed. (like slowed down to 1/8th the original speed?)

So it may be possible that bb's example file is borked.  If I make a new project in wwise and put my source clips into it, they play fine.

(oh, and update on my quest for custom sounds... I still cannot afford to get the equipment yet, cuz text books and project car)

Voice pitch makes the sounds be slower or faster than the original. The pitch is usually controlled by engine's RPM (RTPC_Player_Example).

Also if you want to see how tracks are blended in the engine sound, you can find it in the Engine (blend container) -> General settings -> Blend Tracks -> Edit...

The example project needs to be updated to support the current version, stay tuned.

I'd be very interested in editing the sound of the ragdoll. Is that possible or will it be in the future? Beeing able to edit the ejection sound would be perfect :D

Well currently I couldn't find anything that can read soundbanks other than engine files ( .engs and .enga) and surface sounds (.surs) files. Then I've no idea how to make any file to even read the .surs file.

So not currently possible unless you know how to make some file read that .surs file.
