Modding engine sounds in MW

Discuss editing Need for Speed Most Wanted.

Yeah but when I tried to replace existing sounds with those I got an exhaust sound only, so I think there may be something else involved which I'm not aware of. Some of them give you the full engine, though.

Not really... When I replace sounds with other sounds which are in the game for sure (i.e. all the Mustangs I mentioned earlier except the NASCAR one), the same thing happens.

BTW, for any of you who still play NFSU2, you can use the MW sounds in that game (same file format).

Hey does anyone know the files for the Lancer? I need a low revving car to test all the sounds not availible in the game. My RX7 changes winds up with a horrid noise after 7 RPM with certain engine sounds.

Thanks, everything worked fine untill I pasted the ABK files and then it was like part of the engine noise was reduced.

For anyone deciding to use the diablo sounds, don't replace the ABK file just use the GIN files and it should work fine.

i think replacing the .abk files for some reason reduces the engine noise especially at the high rpms when all you hear is turbo
-EDIT- i replaced just the GIN files this time and it worked, it wasn't muted at all. the Evo sounds kind of cool with the Elise engine. there is another issue though. the elise redlines at about 8500 rpm ( correct me if im wrong ) the Evo redlines at 8000 rpms. well with the Evo and the Elise engine sound when the rpms are up there at around 7000-8000 rpms there is no change in tone. i think i can live with it though

Yep I have noticed when you switch engines with cars with a low rev you have a much better chance. I have only managed to get success with the s2000 and the rx8 engine. I had one TVR that came close maybe around 8500 rpm.

Funny thing is that the Cerbera file sounds extremely close to an M3 GTR... It really fooled me into thinking there wasn't a true TVR sound in NFSMW.

All of the NFSU2 files are in NFSMW's sound folder, and many of them are used by the game.

I posted it in page 4. It's not used in MW but it works if you replace the files.

give me your email address so i can email you the files because it would take too long for me to explain everything that i have done in those folders. I hope you dont mind a couple other cars have been changed also like the viper and the mercedes SLR which has a really loud whistle and the murc having the same turbo sound as the gallardo. and of course the lancer sounding like the rx-7 with a nice turbo sound. the smaller cars like the lancer, audi tt, wrx, all i have a louder turbo.

Hey guys. i have a problem.

when i change soundfiles.

i changed all the mustangs orginal sounds and replaced them with the Corvette's

it sounds great on first gear, but the more i shift up the less sound it makes.
its only decent till about 3rd gear.

ne1 got a solution to that problem?

i switched all the files. 3 gin files 3 gin dcl and 6 CAR_xx_ENG_MB_EE.abk and
CAR_xx_ENG_MB_SPU.abk

When you replace the files, only the exhaust note is played afterwards (the engine is somehow muted). There's no way you can circumvent this other than editing the game's main files and assigning the sounds to the car without replacing the files (I did it with the Ferrari using some external help, but the information about how it was done is classified, at least until Carbon is released, and I won't tell, no matter what).

However, if you only replace the GIN files, the engine sound of the car whose GIN files were replaced is still played (but now it's coupled with the exhaust note of the other car). This makes for interesting combinations.

Oh, BTW, the Mustang sounds better than the Corvette IMO. :P

yes there are a few here that know how to assign certain sounds to the car without replacing them, i happen to be one of them too :D also when changing the sound of a car try to replace sounds with another sound meant for the same rpms ( if you try replacing the rx-8 sound with the camaro it will rev like normalfor the first couple rpms then it just becomes monotone
