Volume is now very compared to C:R
#1 Submitted: Sun, 30/10/2016 - 17:04

Max volume sliders, the engines, sound effects and those mostly are very quiet, much much quieter than C:R. In C:R you had to turn it way down, but now in this, even at max...it's still pretty quiet, plus it almost sounds like there is missing sounds sometimes.

Anyone else have this? I have windows 10, a modern creative z sound car, 5.1 headphones all which work flawlessly with other games, but despite that, having these issues.

I also use Windows 10 64bit and own a Creative Soundblaster Z, but I have no problems with ingame sound.

You should have the Creative Sound Studio on the bottom right of your task bar, set the studio to its default and the bass and increased volume should be enough to keep you smiling :-D

If its not loud enough you can also boost the sound in the audio playback properties.

The issue is not the sound card nor my settings. It's the game.

I can jump into C:R now and it's much MUCH louder than C:MD. It seems like they intentionally lowered the volune in Max Damage compare to reincarnation, because every other game is fine, and i jump into C:R and it's super loud at 100% volume, if i do the same in C:MD at 100% volume it sounds as much as 3x as quiet (like i had the sliders on 30% in C:R).

I've reported it as an issue, just hope it can get resolved as engine sounds are so quiet now.

I have to second this and I've noticed a few people say this in the forums. For me the music is much quieter than C:R which may not seem like an issue, particularly if you aren't a fan of the music.
To solve the issue I have had to up the music vol in the audio menu, drop the other FX sliders and then I have to increase the maximum volume in game and manually increase my headphone volume to get a decent balance.

Again, probably not an issue, however there is a short spike in music volume, on the race loading screen, literally just before the race starts, which literally blows my head off and consequently will result in me calling the National Accident Helpline. Where there is blame there is a claim.

Car reflections need to be sexier and blood darker. Otherwise this game is the definitive and shit hot version of carmageddon. Well done and congrats.

It may just be an odd bug then as I have not experienced any lack of volume, my Carma:R volume and my Carma:MD volume are at the same maxed volume and sound great.

You may be better submitting for assistance from the Helpdesk on the following link - https://carmageddon.zendesk.com/

I'm having the same problem. My volume levels in Windows, Spotify, every other game are just right. Load C:MD and I can barely hear a thing. I turned all volume sliders to off except for car volume and found that my own engine noise is completely muted. Like driving round an electric vehicle.

I turned the master volume on my AV Receiver up to the point where I would be deafening myself in anything else and nothing but a faint buzzing I can only assume is the "noise" of the analog audio jack itself.

Anybody any ideas?

Apparently my audio output format sample rate and bit depth was incorrect. For some reason it was set to 24 bit 192000 Hz. I changed it to 24 bit 48000 Hz and now I can hear my own vehicle. God knows why it affected that. The entire game still seems a bit quiet though, I've had to turn my AV Receiver up to -5.0 when I have it down at -25.0 for everything else.

I have the same thing occasionally.

Especially on the level were you can find the supper suppressor.

When you try to derail the train (not possible) a lot while using the suppressor after a while the sounds stops.

You hear peds screaming a,d music but environmental sound is a goner.

I've got the same problem, but with music being silent rather than anything else.
