I take what n0e says way too seriously

for the love of god! fix the .50 cal mg sound. right now it sounds like a clogged hose. the M2 .50 calibre heavy machine gun (known as the maw duce) had a very distinctive rapid thumping sound (pumpumpumpum). the boys at DC have it dead on.
Get the FH realism mod. It'll fix it.
Nah it's not really that good in FH realism imo, if I were you I would download the sound Cap.Miller posted in the new sounds for FH thread. It can be done by extracting sound_001.rfa, replacing the .50 cal sound and packing it back up. It's very easy to do and you have a better sound. Only works with soundquality at 44khz. Edit: calxlr is the sound by Cap.Miller, calx is the one from FH realism or the original FH sound I'm not sure.
FWIW, "ma deuce". Just being a prick.
Yeah I was a bit confused as to why the .50 cal, the largest machine gun in the mod (not in a plane) was not only the weakest sounding but the quietest. I guess the sound guy forgot about it or something. Even the .30 cal sounds more deadly..
FH realism gives a pretty darn good one though, so I just use that.
