rFactor tire sounds

Discussion in 'rFactor' started by Will Marquez, Jun 19, 2010.

  1. Was wondering if there is an option in sounds settings that you can change so that you can hear more tire noise to let you know that you are approaching the limit? In Race07 you are able to hear the tires and was curious if anyone knew. Thx. :)
     
  2. Don't have Race07 but in rFactor if you turn the sound effects up to max it helps. You may find you can adjust the volume in the SFX file. Not sure if this is possible in Race07 though.

    I changed those settings a few weeks ago, as I had the same question and searched all over the net to find a thread where this was mentioned... :wink: Have fun!

  5. SoundFX Volume="1.00000" // 0.0-1.0
