hmmm i thought some of the sounds were actually better, like the sniper rifle and the mg on top of the tank. sounds better than the old one which to me was way to fast a cyclic rate, it sounded more like an uzi or something. but if you want cool sounds try the mod that gunslinger made, its here in the downloads section. it rocks, but the mg sound i mentioned was one he didnt change, thats my only complaint with it, the rest of them are great especially when you are in a plane taking flack fire. :-)

Hi hortizonen,

I suspect a lot of the confusion about file sizes actually comes from the way different OS versions and file partitions display the file sizes. If you're using NTFS on your HDD you will probably get a different number to Fat32. This is exactly what mine says in the file system on Fat32 using 2K clusters (the smallest possible in FAT32).

Size: 47.4 MB (49,722,005 bytes)

Size on disk: 47.4 MB (49,725,440 bytes)

The 47.4 is actually a rounded down figure of 47.41859....etc (to about 12 figures.)

The thing with the guys saying they have 48.6 is they are probably reading the "size on disk" rather than the actual size, which will vary as I said depending on OS, file system and cluster size etc.. It's also quite possible that they are using an earlier version of Windows than XP which reports file sizes in Kilobytes rather than bytes, to give 48,774 Kilobytes, or thereabouts to about 8 decimal places (rounded down by windows to 48.6 Megabytes - now isn't that a co-oincidence - maybe we should blame Bill G for the confusion :lol: ).

Have fun all

:cya: :cya: :cya:
