(previously when you heard a gun shot or something you had to quickly turn you head to pinpoint the location, not anymore!)

I am still getting ghost footsteps like crazy this go around with steam audio. still seems buggy. definitley better but still buggy just like non steam audio.

Finally I have PUBG levels of "yep I'm getting shot at exactly from there". Like seriously before the patch I was looking around and around and would often end up dying before I spotted the shooter. Today on shoreline I just turned around and started blasting on a guy who dared to miss the first shot, bet he suspected cheats use cause that would be absolutely impossible yesterday.

I have no idea why some people were so opposed to Binaural Audio coming back, It's literally just helping you and punishing campers for missing the killshot.

played interchange earlier and it was soooo nice to know where people were blasting from

made the game so much better

The random running noises bug is back tho?

They broke audio again

Voip is done, but when they add it boy imma mess with some people

I am also excited for voip however I have a feeling it may be filled with racist little kids, or people trying to DMCA streamers

Well the best part of that is it'll be really easy to get free kills with all the noise they're making haha

I REALLY can't wait to be able to offer slickers to "little boys" in resort.

Yes 100%! I was just able to spin around and shoot someone based solely on the sound they made! I still got my ass handed to me but at least I was able to shoot them!

Does this fix silent stairwells? Had a dude come blasting up to me on 4th level white pawn last night and didn’t hear him until he was directly on me and was too late.

9 : Anonymous2021/03/30 18:28 ID: gsttwuv

This is great news. Is that due to what was referred to as “steam audio” in the release notes?

What is it based on?

10 : Anonymous2021/03/30 18:30 ID: gstu4e4

It’s AMAZING! Went interchange to help a buddy with quests and immediately noticed how crisp the sound was. Stuff also doesn’t sound like it’s playing from under a blanket anymore. I can also here exactly where my friend is especially when running right next to each other. Before it used to sound like he was right on top of me but now it sounds legit!! GGs battlestate. You did good

quick question, what is voip?

13 : Anonymous2021/03/30 17:58 ID: gstpvkw

Stands for Voice Over Internet Protocol, aka in-game chat, as the other commenter mentioned.

I stopped playing some time ago so im kinda out of the loop, what do you mean exactly with this post?

Some time ago, they took out Steam audio, and what remained was buggy at best.

They re-introduced it with this patch.

19 : Anonymous2021/03/30 16:17 ID: gstce5n

There's still ghost stepping with steam audio so don't get too excited yet op. There's a common trend here with this developer.

Oooh oooh! I know this one!

He’s talking about incompetence, guys!

Its like what is going on? Record sales exceeding over 50 million dollars yet were stuck in the same constant loop hole of reliability and performance issues constantly.

22 : Anonymous2021/03/30 20:24 ID: gsu9bcc

sounds like shit... Everything sound muffled unless its in front of you. Its complete shit and i would much rather keep using the old audio

23 : Anonymous2021/03/30 20:54 ID: gsud51l

I feel the same 🙁 was so hyped too. Also got ghost footsteps... I ended up reverting for now to old :/

24 : Anonymous2021/03/30 22:50 ID: gsur7ev

Yeah you have to look in the direction of sounds to properly estimate how far they are its really annoying

cant wait until voip.

I hope this never happens.

" cant wait until voip "

Yeah, I can't wait to hear young boyz yelling, people from all over the world insulting in their native langages and so on.
I'm ready to bet it will be a nightmare.

There’s already a “mute other players” option in the game although it’s grayed out. Just turn it off and let other people have their fun.

28 : Anonymous2021/03/30 18:47 ID: gstwga1

If we can mute people then it's ok.

29 : Anonymous2021/03/30 16:22 ID: gstczy7

Try standing on the roofs of the three story buildings on reserve. Ghost steps every other minute. Drives me bonkers.

30 : Anonymous2021/03/30 16:27 ID: gstdmye

It's still stereo and not 7.1 right?

31 : Anonymous2021/03/30 17:23 ID: gstl8o8

7.1 headphones are a gimmick. they're headphones. 2.0 sound.

steam audio is stereo sound with better directionality.

32 : Anonymous2021/03/30 16:58 ID: gsthxhi

I really hope this is true.

33 : Anonymous2021/03/30 17:22 ID: gstl5ok

I literally quit the game mid-wipe because of the broken audio. This is some good news if true!

34 : Anonymous2021/03/30 17:56 ID: gstpo5r

Ran shoreline yesterday. Couldn’t hear under or over. Got ran up on by a 3 man. I have no idea if it’s normal but i think you should be able to hear three geared guys run on wood one floor under you ?

Well the Steam Audio patch was this morning.

36 : Anonymous2021/03/30 18:02 ID: gstqf5z

Anyone know if positional nade audio is fixed from far away with steam audio? I remember last time you couldn't tell which direction a nade was in say if you were in idea and a nade was thrown in oli, it would just sound like it was all around you.

37 : Anonymous2021/03/30 18:14 ID: gstrzkx

The only problem I sometines have is that hidden stashes sound really damp and as if they were behind you when opening them

38 : Anonymous2021/03/30 18:14 ID: gsts00q

I dont see steam audio in the settings, is it called binaural sound still?

39 : Anonymous2021/03/30 19:41 ID: gsu3my4

Something is wrong with audio now I think, I keep hearing things that aren't there. I'll spawn in and a few seconds later I hear jumping right behind me, turn around and see nothing.

I was also running through fortress right now and I heard like half-second of someone's voice, and then it just stopped. Sounded like it was right outside a particular door and nobody was there. I keep hearing bullets ricocheting near my character as well, but the shooting is clearly from a fight far away.

40 : Anonymous2021/03/30 19:58 ID: gsu5vr7

Wait, will they eventually add voip? Like is that a plan of theirs to add that to the game?

41 : Anonymous2021/03/30 20:35 ID: gsuamwo

It's good. Needs a bit of mixing tweaks though. I was outside of Idea and heard a guy running on an escalator so clearly. That can be toned down a bit.

42 : Anonymous2021/03/30 20:41 ID: gsubhlb

Are you using the new steam audio ?

43 : Anonymous2021/03/30 20:41 ID: gsubiye

Directional audio is better for sure, but vertical audio is still pretty bad (maybe even worse than the default one)

44 : Anonymous2021/03/30 22:47 ID: gsuqxbk

Hearing range is severly reduced or there are some major bugs with the new audio.

I was sitting in a bush and a guy ran past me, his footsteps.completly cut out after like 15-20 meters while he was sprinting. No fade in or out it just stopped from one moment to the n3xt while I watched him run away. If that guy was running up behind me he could've probably closed into melee range before I had turned around. Im definetly going back to the old audio.

45 : Anonymous2021/03/30 22:58 ID: gsus66s

I have a question. If I’m using Windows Sonic or Dolby Atmos am I putting myself at a disadvantage? Like do those programs work with steam audio?

46 : Anonymous2021/03/30 23:00 ID: gsuscm7

What about all the phantom steps that happen now?

47 : Anonymous2021/03/31 00:05 ID: gsuzrzg

Its still got some issues, I wish I recorded it but I got killed by a ks-23 that didn't make a sound, so I was so confused when I just dropped dead outta nowhere lol. But overall I'm glad its back.

48 : Anonymous2021/03/31 00:15 ID: gsv0zs4

For me, I'm having a really hard time hearing people not sure why?

49 : Anonymous2021/03/31 00:50 ID: gsv4ua9

To me this is the most important update the game has had. Positional audio in this game was always terrible, now it's quite accurate. Good job BSG. Steam Audio is great.

50 : Anonymous2021/03/31 02:02 ID: gsvct4f

Now we just need audio from different floors lol

51 : Anonymous2021/03/31 02:16 ID: gsveasx

The direction is way better but... Resort is broke, you can hear people on the same floor from one side of a wing to the other side but as soon as you go up or down a level there is 0 sound. Tested it with a friend and you can't hear them running around on wood in a room directly below you, it instantly cuts off on the stairs. But you can hear doors open/unlock on different levels.
