    Video Tutorial Series

    I got to thinking maybe it was hijacking so edited it out. Now that I know it is OK I'll put it back in.

    This is in addition to your Creating Weapon Sounds tutorial. How to use a .gun file and a calculator to precisely get sustained fire, recoil and three shot audio files for the original Ghost Recon. https://youtu.be/m2-KdZwvZKg

    Great job on organizing that .psd file Jack. You are allot better at that then I ever thought about being. Skins are top notch you have posted. What is the file size on that bad boy?

    The Black Devils

    It is possible but I don't how easy, to request military records from the US National Archives. https://www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records (Includes DD 214/Separation Documents, Personnel Records, Replacement Medals, and/or Medical Records) Allot of military records were lost in a fire in St Louis, MO at a repository that kept them in the 1960's. I hope his records were not lost there. I didn't realize the The 1st Special Service Force was known as The Black Devils. I read about them in Rick Atkinson's book The Day Of Battle(The war in Sicily and Italy, 1943-1944) One of the best trained and highly decorated units of WW2. My father was at Anzio too. You might also search on the internet for sites dedicated to The 1st Special Service Force. Good luck and God Bless.

    f12 removes the HUD element in the lower right hand corner. Name of primary and secondary and counts for each.

    Playing with some sounds...

    I have tried allot of sound sources: YouTube, several games and modded soundpacks for other games. No matter the source, the GR limitation of having mono weapon sounds diminishes good sounding stereo sounds. On the other hand, there are several GR weapon sounds that are awful. Most notably the M24. So attempts to replace existing weapon sounds and effects are worth the effort. The weapon sounds in Wildlands are to die for. I was able to extract them with some software but formatting them for use in GR deemed them quite average. 😞 Once in awhile I'll find a sound that maintains its punch and is quite satisfying but these are few and far between.

    Thanks so much Apex! Can you clarify for me if it is necessary to apply the HU_Demo_strings.res. even if I never active the GR Demo found in the XTRAS folder?

    Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed

    Is it a specific mission or gametype? Is it a specific kit restriction? Is it joining a dedicated server or a listen server(that is the host plays and serves one one computer) or thru something like Gameranger(not sure how that works)?

    Sam Fisher Mission

    Anyone completing this is a true soldier! I have made it to Sam a couple of times but when the onslaught begins I get steamrolled. I don't think I fired a shot the first time. I have found away in that does not take too long but the hard part is defending Sam. I don't know if it would be a good idea to plant a few mines outside the building where Sam is or not. This would have to be done before contacting Sam. Might end the mission early if a enemy set one off before getting to Sam. Calling for rebel reinforcements is an option too after the onslaught begins. I'm not too proud to use that kind of help.

    Ghost Recon: Heroes Unleashed

    Can you elaborate: 1. Using any mods besides Desert Siege, Island Thunder and HU VERSION 1.0.0 ? 2. When trying to join the dedicated server does the server crash too? 3. If you try again will you save the client ike.log and post it here? Not to be confused with the ikeCrash.log 4. Does your game crash when a mission or gametype starts or at some other point? 5. List anything else that might help track down the issue. Any and all help is appreciated.

    Gun sounds change volume dramatically

    Go to Mods / Origmiss / Sound And play the sound w_M249_rc.wav. This is the ending sounding for the M249 which is kinda of a loud Bang. Is this how you here it in game? Not really noticed it until now, so I tried it ingame with only DS and IT activated. It only made a loud bang sound when firing very short burst, 2-3 rounds. Playing online yesterday and a team mate had a lmg, not sure which one, and it seemed to make a loud bang end sound. Just sayin...
