    Is there a way to make it sound more realistic - the revs are too low so it sounds like you are shooort-shifting?

    The overall pitch is low on purpose. This is not supposed to sound EXACTLY like the V8s from 2006-2014, they're supposed to be lower-revving V8s.

    But if you want to increase the sound pitch yourself, open the BDLs in a hex editor and change byte 55. That's what controls the sound pitch of a BDL.

    Nut can that editing make it sound like they shift up at normal rpm and not so low?

    Increasing the value at byte 55 will increase the overall pitch of the engine, it should affect upshifting as well.

    If he meant offset 55 you'd need to check out row 00000050, column 05.

    Navigate to audio/bundles in your F1 2017 game folder. x_2017.bdl, with x being ferrari/mercedes/honda/renault, is what you want to back up in case of a problem.

    That is correct.

    The hex editor I use is HxD. It's free and it's worked very well for me to do many things.

    Start a Grand Prix save and exit during the session, when the game saves, it saves always so in the career, too. The game has only "to save" or "not to save" there is no difference between game modes.
