VPaulus -> Real Sound Mod Redux (12/8/2011 8:38:34 PM)
This is basically a new edited version of the Real Sound Mod.
There were added new sounds, enhanced some of the old ones and deleted/replaced some sounds with less quality.
Now we have 138 sounds for attack and 311 for movement. In terms of attack is more than the double we had in RSM.
In my opinion, this version is close from what we (Razz and me) both intended when we began to create this sound mod.
To install, just unzip the files and folders to the correspondent Panzer Corps subfolders "Audio" and "Graphics".
The only file replaced from the original, is the "efx.pzdat". So please do a backup of this file in the "Graphics" subfolder.
Strongly advised the use of Generic Mod Enabler.
During the tests it was discovered, that Panzer Corps, could crash when it's consuming more than 1GB of memory. Rudankort already said, that the memory usage will be tweaked soon. So, while there's no patch for this issue, I recommend first of all, to save in regular basis, and secondly, you should exit to Windows after playing one/two scenarios in a campaign. That way the memory will be dumped off. All of the testers were able to play more than one scenario in the campaign, but if you want to be sure just exit to Windows and enter again after playing one.
Note to 1.1x Patch: One of the things that patch 1.10 brought to us, was a way to disable the animation cache of Panzer Corps. This will reduce enormously the chance of the game crashing to desktop.
To disable the cache you must create a shortcut of PanzerCorps.exe and add the switch /nocache after PanzerCorps.exe. Don't forget to add a space after ". Look at the follow examples:
Please, it's very important that in case you experience any crash, to report it back here. We need to know if we must tweak even further Panzer Corps in order to prevent crashes.
This version will replace all the previous versions of RSM Redux
