you can now define sounds via the ruleset, this includes replacements (this should render the cat file format redundant.)

Probably this is the best solution. Simply replacing a CAT with a MOD of wavs in a separate DiR + ruleset.

My sound file are in 44,000hz i believe.

I used a sketchy converter called "free" ogg wav converter or something.
But u can use any sound editor to do the conversion.

Maybe you got the numbers incorrect before you pck everything.
Use the ufopedia to get it accurate, catpacker doesn't shuffle files anyways.
Oh yea, one more thing. If you open any sound in the folder where you are about to pack,
You will get an error. So don't open any sound file before you pack.

I extracted your CAT into a separate dir, replaced 0010_2.wav with a newly created one and packed the whole dir back with Catpacker. Files names didn't change.

But i'm going to ruleset new sounds.

The file downloads as an EXE and Kaspersky reports a phishing address when executing it.
The Downloader then tries to install all sorts of Ad-Programms, "Optimizers" and so on.

Not cool...

you should probably un-tick the checkbox for "download with optimizer"... does that help?

Why not a direct .rar though? Maybe you gotta pay for no ad uploader I guess.

Thanks

Works fine here. You might've clicked on one of the fake buttons, you should get an ad blocker:

I must have done something wrong, as I just tested with a .png file and it worked....

I found a sound FX bug. When I deployed into a terror-site, a few minutes into the battle, I heard UFO doors opening from a distance during aliens turn. Made me jump at first, because I haven't played in a long time and I thought OXC implemented landed UFOs into Terror sites.

I should have tried opening/closing a door myself to make sure, but I didn't think of that until now. It was a night mission though. As soon as I got 3 of my men out, the fight started, so I was focused.

This mod is great! The music changes everything, thanks 2K Games, at least the music was good :D

I noticed lots of sound changes for the better, and a few I can barely notice the difference or am I imagining things? Would you be able to list what sounds you changed in the game? These come from the CAT files, right? Why do they make it so hard :( OXC should make it as easy as changing the music :)

I'm also sorry to necro bump this. I thought it would be fine since it's a finished mod that may need an update, if xover88 is around.

The UFO door sound was from one of the warehouses, big green doors that slide up into the ceiling when opened. Even in vanilla those use the same SFX.

Thanks Align ;) I should have known, but I only started observing every sound effect after installing this mod :P

Up with a proposal: as for the first point last century i played eu verion with these sounds  and were much more cool than the US version. Can't see why they changed >.<

Second poit: in the upcoming 2.0 openxcom version, may eventually  added as an option?

Edit: after a more close listening it resemble fallout music, guess the inspiration may come from there or just a coincidence? :P

I hope posting on a very old topic is bad, or something like that. I remember i downloaded this mod from the mods portal time ago, and i liked it a lot. But now that that mods portal is down donde know where go get it again. Thanks in advance
