Poll: Hyde's Minigun Sound - Old or New?


#1

This has been bugging me for months, but which version of Hyde’s Minigun sound do you guys prefer?

Personally I prefer the old one by far, because it sounds more authentic and closer to what a Minigun sounds like compared to the newer one which sounds generic and like someone is working a hand crank.

  • Old

New sounds more satisfying In my opinion but old isn’t bad


#3

Added a video of an actual minigun firing as a reference.


#4

It was changed due to the amount of bullets being shot. They used to have issues with the amount of projectiles being thrown out so it had a higher velocity of firing. That changed and they lowered the rounds per second shot and the sound to be more inline with that new amount.


#5

The old sound is too quiet, however the new sound seems to sound like a different type of gun, but I’m no gun expert.


#6

Bummer. =[


#7

Ya. It had something to due with the amount of processing it took to determine where all the bullets landed or something. They were sad to take it out in the end.


#8

I actually would love to hear the two sounds merged into one since one is more treble and the other is more base.


#9

I was about to say I liked the old one because it sounded faster, but if they lowered the firing speed then that explains why the second sounds the way it does.


#10

I like the nice thrum of the old sound I think if the newer sound had a different pitch, like if it was deeper it would sound better right now it sounds closer to an assault rifle or submachine gun than a Death Machine


#11

The old sound is absolutely the best … I remember MacMan saying he didn’t knew why they changed it and he was gonna look it up.


#12

Yeah I remember him saying that.

@MacMan any update on that?


#13

So in regards to guns are you all about that bass? Kappa


#14

And every inch of you is perfect from the barrel to the stock. Oh yeah I should write lyrics for songs…not really, actually.


#15

Yup. It has been changed back, but I think it’s in an update, and not in the release build.


#16

Awww, nice to hear :slight_smile:


#17

Day 1 update confirmed! Rabble rabble rabble. Why would they do this instead of just having the game done. My disc is incomplete and I want a refund. /end stereotypical griefer rant lol


#18

Good job guys, we made it happen :stuck_out_tongue: cough cough !

Thanks MacMan, you the real MVP!
