Anyone know of a replacement sounds pack for this mod? Sampling original cars was a great idea but it's seriously backfired in the implementation...

I play with headphones and the engine sounds are terrible, just awful, unrealistic and noisy - far too high-pitched, too much mid-range, nowhere near enough bass, and waaay too loud.

It's so unbearable i can't use the mod in it's current state - the cars and physics are great, but the engine sounds hurt my ears and give me a headache!

The Escorts and Capris - my favourites - sound like motorbikes with holed exhaust headers!

It's a real pity - every time i feel like some classic racing i load this mod then exit after ~10 mins because i can't stand the horrible noise any more.

If no replacements are available, how difficult would it be to swap engine sounds from other mods - granted they might not be as 'authentic' but they'd certainly sound more realistic and this would at least make the mod playable?

i was going to say the same thing. one of this mods finest attributes (and there are many)... is the sounds. through my headphones this mod is probably the BEST sounding mod ive ever heard. theres not one sound i would change at all to be honest. the boys here have done such an amazing job ... that other guys take the sounds from this mod to use in other mods.

This mod should have obligatory headphones use during play. Wolferl = genius.
What I really love is to put a car on 2nd gear @ very low revs and go ahead very slowly. Braking is awesome experience with those cars too! Revs matching, throttle roaring, it's going down from 5th to 2nd! Don't you oversteer on me now! ROAR, ROAR, ROAR, tons of exploding backfire, I'm in heaven.
Damn, woman, go away, no sex tonight - I'm playing HistorX 1.9!

You're insane. The sounds are one of the main reasons the mod is so immersive. Fix your stuff.
