[Addon] Action Doom 2 Punchin' Sound Improvement Pack

Yo Guys! Action doom 2 is one of my top-favorite mod to this day, regardless it was not a sequal and... always waited for action doom 3 comes out, but i sure still love this mod alright!

but the real downbeat of this mod was sound effects. and of course, finding the new, clean and decent sound effects for doom mod was must be real hard back in the day. so some month ago, i've made this little addon that changes almost of sound effects into, well, new, clean and decent ones. also it includes some dead of winter DLC sound effect replacements as well!

and then i forgot to share it to everybody and i presume it's kinda late... but have fun with this regardless!

to apply this to the mod, just drag this to the action doom 2 launcher or create a skin file and put it in there. also you can download the original mod with launcher here.

DOWNLOAD 'N KEEP PUNCHIN'!

EDIT: This Thread is more likely abandoned since Scuba Steve revived the TC plus used some of the sound replacements. Check this thread out!

Action Doom 2's BIGGEST problem is copyrighted sounds. I'll be honest, this is great and I want to use it... but the problem is many of these sounds are also copyrighted.

Ralphis wants to re-release of AD2 on steam using Gloome, but I need to replace numerous sounds first. Are any of these royalty free?

Scuba, look into the Soniss free audio bundles. Tens of gigabytes of royalty-free SFX for free.

Now the next ambitious thing to happen is remastered version of the soundtracks...

most of sound effects are directly from some doom mods, freesound.org, youtube and gamebanana. and since you said many of those sound effects are actually copyrighted, you might search for different sound effects than this mod's. like from the audio bundle that kinsie mentioned!

One of the 'hit' sounds is used when objects "hit" the floor. The replacement sound used is too strong. It needs to be more subtle because as it stands now, the "thud" from bodies and other objects hitting the ground is overwhelming.

about the hit sounds, you mean hit5, hit4 and hit2? they also plays when the baseball bat and chain hits the enemies, right? and it sounded like hitting with something as well. and i'll be honest, i can't find any good sound effects to cover them all that uses the same sounds, so i weakened it instead. and about the body thud sound, i think it's reasonable why it's overwhelming, so i've changed it into a weak one.

so it's updated, edited some of them, now fat guys plays body thud sound reasonably loud and added more sounds from freesound.org i've used before.

and one last thing, i hope you guys can get some sound effects better than mine when you guys releases action doom 2 on steam!

Played for a while with the sound pack and it really enhances the game. If you find yourself bored and want to help us get ready for this summer... you could start compiling a sound replacement pack using only free sound sources :D I think I once compiled a list of copyrighted material in AD2...

Spoiler:


I also need help revamping maps to work properly with hardware acceleration.

whoa, some of those original sound effects actually are free sound effects? because they were named. if that's true, didn't knew that! anyway i'd love to help you! except mapping and ACS scripting things, they are absolutely hard for me. so i could help you with out them, sould effects and maybe sprites!

anyway, let me find some suitable sound effects from freesound.org and i'll collect and compile them for you!

I think I tried with some due diligence to find royalty-free sounds... but I definitely used things I should not have used. The more sounds that are replaced the better because I don't remember where I found many of them, and I was not as concerned with copyright as I will be if we try and put it on Steam.

just in case, i'm revealing some sources of the sound effects used in this addon. to give them to you, of course! but minus some sound effects from the other sites, mods and besides freesound.org ones, also few sound effects will be replaced because i really cannot find their source. but still that would be much easier, right?

silly me, i should've revealed the sources of every single of sound effects. now it's too late and i'm keep doing it.

and hey, have you ever checked Soniss free audio bundles that kinsie mentioned before? are they good to hear and use?

The Soniss sounds are very high quality. They're arranged clearly too.

i see, going to check it right now!

also source-revealing, re-recording and replacing is all completed! i'm going to PM you now, steve! hope you like it!

EDIT: aww, seems like it was limited. cannot download it on website. but at least reddit shares the torrent file, though.
