    As the title says in any fov the wind sound is very loud i tried all kinds of things in the audio options but they made no difference . Anybody else think that the wind sound is too loud ? And yes i know these engine are not as noisy as in 2013 , but still !

    Sorry, I haven't had a real chance to race.

    I did a little TT yesterday, and a 5 lap race. I was concentrating on getting my wheel setup, and tweaking the force feedback. I can't say that a noticed any sort of wind problem when I was on track

    I keep meaning to race tonight ....... but the my email server went down, and I have just spent the past hour or so with tech support :rolleyes:

    Then I've got to keep an eye on these forums ........ a fun day :)

    I think I will ....... I may disappear for a couple of hours, and get angry at the game instead of my mail server ;)

    Good luck :)

    I get a loud wind sound when I have no front wing. Is it all the time or just after an accident?

    They've been in F1 201X\audio\soundbanks before but as I've read across some threads now everything seems to be hidden in those crypted new fileformat. If someone will find a way to open it, you might want to check it out, again.

    Found it and deleded it but it had no effect . But thanks for the tip ! Does anyone else think the wind sound it too lound or is it just me ? One way i can reduce it is by going from 6 chanel direct to stereo x 2 .

    I just did a 25% race mate, definitely no problem for me either.

    I know what you are talking about. I noticed this especially since I drive using cockpit view and there's no wind in that view. A few times I've cycled out of cockpit view by mistake and I hear the loud wind noise in all views. Sometimes is stays on when I go back into cockpit view.
    The opposite almost occurs in another Codemasters game, GRID Autosport, where if you lose your side window or windscreen, you can hear loud wind rushing past, but as soon as you use the "look behind" button, the wind disappears! Don't think they've quite got this wind thing nailed down!

    Same problem in Grid Autosport, fix is what @Richard Alexander stated. They must be sharing the same code.

    That's good point @Richard Alexander , do you drive using the T-Cam @bporion ? That could be the issue, and they need to tone the wind down a bit in that view. I only use cockpit view, so perhaps that's why I can't confirm the noise

    I think that in F1 2013 there was quite a wind noise when the DRS was opened. It annoyed some people, I liked it as it was an easy confirmation that it was actually open.

    I was actually quite surprised by the lack of noise in cockpit view the first time I went into it. It's really quiet this year. Almost a muffled feeling. I was hoping it'd be a bit louder but perhaps they are trying to simulate a padded helmet? I understand you wouldn't have a loud engine blasting you in the face like you would if you were in chase-cam but still...
