    Going to give this a try tonight I think. Good to see there is a couple of options out there, crew chief is great but this may suite me better.

    2. includes audio in italian as well (for italian drivers)
    3. will include instruction (steps and software needed + effects i use) how all of you can make sounds for drivers both (italian and english) - 100% like sounds.

    I think you need to raise the volume in DefaultEvents.ini, all players in the league i race have saying that its to low, i use volume=3.0.

    I think volume is set maximum in DefaultEvents.ini and all sounds after recorded are amplified to maximum level without going to distortion level.

    What I do is always reduce the sound of the engine from rf2. It still sounds good and then you can hear spotter perfectly.

    Can you please elaborate more on this sound issue in DefaultEvents.ini, to make sure I understood you well.

    There's nothing much more to say. Most of people who races with me dont speak english, they spect things to be plug and play like automobilista, so they get frustated.

    I need to explain to every new fellow that he needs to change volume.

    I really didn't notice any distortion using volume=3.0.

    to tell you the truth i was not aware the sound can be amplified using volume=3.0. I always worked it out by lowering the engine volume. As you might be aware spotter was created by Gerald Jackobson. I just added many more sounds and more events.

    The new version will have english and italian audio. Will come in exe format just double click to install (all files in place) and yes will include this in readme file. Will test how it works in the coming days.

    Thanks for this information.

    I really like your plugin but the volume is way to low and I do not know how to increase it in a config file. Can you tell me where and how to do this?

    I don't think volume=3.0 will make any difference..at least according to the original wiki by Gerald. Still need to try it - had no time yet.

    To have drivers names you have to record them. Very soon i will upload how to do sounds 100% sounding like the original sounds both eng and ita.

    Had no time as was working on improving spotter. Hopefully next week. Recorded 400 new sounds in italian as well.

    Tried today changing the volume to 3.0 of one event. I did not hear any improvements. I usually lower the sound of the engine to hear spotter very well

    My friend spotter has been around for more than 2 years i guess. A work started by gerald jackobson and then i recorded the new sounds and added more and more events.

    I do not have the exe file. I told you what to do. Just make sure spotter sound in rf2 is highest and then lower sound of engine. It will be good for sure.

    Another way would be find a software to do batch amplification of the sound files. But i do not recommend as maybe sounds become distorted.

    Replace all the occurrences of volume=1.0, Ctrl+H in notepad. probably you changed one that was not used while you're on the track, or maybe there is one that raises all them.
