  1. i have always played wurm with all sounds disabled because i would love to play with pm alerts and ui sounds on and nothing else but this is imposible. if you try turning off everything on sound options except UI sounds and PM alerts you still hear very loud pushing/pulling sounds and some others(even if you set all volume options to 0). i hope im not the only one and others agree.
  2. I sometimes need to switch Audio Devices headset to speaker or speaker to headset. With Wurm, this cannot be done in game. The option does not exist. If done in windows, a restart of Wurm is required because it cannot switch audio context while the game is running in windows10. I also have a headset that has a bad usb port on it (HyperX Orbit - great sound very bad build quality). If I move my head too much the audio cuts out and Wurm will not reacquire the device. Wurm is the only game and/or applications that does not reacquire the device. Other users confirmed this is not an issue with Linux or Windows 7. So it seems the the issue has to do with Wurm and windows 10.
  3. I am NOT asking the wurm devs to create/add totally fresh NEW animations and/or sound, although it is much needed. All I am asking for is to use /re-use existing elements to make imping/creating/performing actions more fun and less boring and text-based ( eyes glued to event window ). Example: You are standing in your house and imping your cloth (armor). - You see NO animation at all - No sound at all ( I know its hard in this example, maybe a scissor cutting sound? ) All we are focused on is the event window with the progress bar/timer. - Smithing -Why doesn't smithing have any animation? -Why can't we use the same animation for packing/chopping up wood etc for smithing while standing close to an anvil? That would make it look like you are actually hitting something while smithing! Maybe not the best idea since you're using 2 hands with a shovel and 1 hand with smithing but you could simply make it a 1 hand action and shorten the hit range to make it look smoother. - Mining You hit 2 times, you hear 1 ticking/mining sounds. why? Why can't wurm use a sound effect that actually makes a hit-sound when you come down with your pickaxe? this is not that hard or impossible since it is already happening with woodcutting. It looks like someone forgot the mining part and left it there. - Farming You rake, you see an animation and hear a soundeffect. Cool. Why is this left out of harvesting? it does make the same sound but suddenly it is too lazy to actually animate you raking/picking up harvest? again, it looks like a dev once made it and left it there to be forgotten until someone complains about it. - Archery Let's say you queue up 3 actions ( 3 shooting actions ) : - when you start with the first arrow, player doesn't flex it's box and an arrow magically flies over to the target. - Only with the second arrow, the animation of flexing the bow starts BUT it stops flexing prematurely before timer is over and another arrow magically flies from your top of the head to the archery target leaving you thinking that you don't need bows at all. Just fart the arrow away - Ships/Sailing You raise the anchor and start sailing with your , lets say, sailing boat. You raise the sails and go fast. Then you decide you want to go a bit slower because you are approaching something or simply want to park your boat. The boat makes the same sound effects as if you're boat is riding through marsh/foliage while there is NO foliage at all in the middle of the ocean ( obviously ). Either check for water depth before making the sound or simply change/remove this sound effect. - Firemaking You grab your steel & flint with a kindling in your bag and start to light the oven/forge and hear a flint hitting to light your forge/oven .cool! Now you want to do the exact same action to make a campfire but then it suddenly has a brain fart and forgets that you're using the same flint for the same/ similar action. There is no sound of you hitting any flint and a campfire magically appears. These 2 actions are exactly the same. Why does a flint make noise on ovens/forge but not when trying to make a campfire? have you ever seen survival shows? Have you heard the sound it makes to start a fire with a flint :P? - Milking: Why on earth do we hear a sound effect AFTER milking and not WHILE milking? Either make the sound effect longer or simply use another one that can be used just like any other continious existing sound effect (building, foraging, botanizing etc ) - Praying: Let's start with the positive again. You actually kneel and pray ( the animation ) ! Great! Maybe add a very low (human) mumbling/whispering noise (any random language/non-existing language )when someone is praying at an altar? This example is not something neccessary but would add something nice to the praying part
  4. Small QoL change that would be nice: When changing the audio output device, the sound doesn't move to the new default device. The sound stays on the previous device. Many softwares will redirect audio to the new selection, it would be nice if Wurm could.. Sometimes I need headphones, sometimes speakers are preferred. It would be nice not to relaunch the client every time I need to change. Please correct me if I'm missing a feature/work-around.
  5. This is something I've long been meaning to suggest. When inside a mine, you can hear two different sound loops: A crumbling sound, as if sand and pebbles are flowing down A soft blowing of the wind through the tunnels The creepy crumbling sound has always freaked me out and made me feel like I will, at any time, be crushed to death by a collapsing mine. I do LOVE that we have it though, so please don't get me wrong. I would never want it removed. I think that sound is one of the things that makes going into a mountain tunnel so exciting and thrilling! But wouldn't it be cool that once you've secured a mine with mine supports, that the crumbling sound stops and only the soft wailing of the wind sound is left? We all know that immense satisfaction of getting those mine supports up there, but imagine how much more satisfying it would be if the mine sounded more secure as well!?
  6. Since day one, I've wished I could change all my volume levels for Music, Ambient, creature, fighting, etc. I also want this to be controlled while INGAME and not something that requires logging to change. I'm sure it is just a Java issue, but by golly, please figure out a way to solve it I imagine a world where I can listen to the Wurm soundtrack when playing casually, then turn it off when I think I hear some sneaky critter near by. Where as I am sailing and need a quick compass heading, I can just disembark, check, embark, then turn down that awful water sloshing sound (because nobody seems to want this fixed?) and keep sailing. Where I can be playing, while in a Webex meeting with work, muting the game, but leaving the webex volume normal, so I don't miss my meeting. Pretty much every game does this. I think our Code Club devs are more than smart enough to do it too. Just need to talk Rolf into letting them tackle it and I know they can figure it out. I have 195 yellow potions I'm happy to donate to any dev player account as incentive, because they are fun!
  7. I rely heavily on sound for my gameplay and am overall quite satisfied with the in game sounds (though I do many times wish they were directional). Anyhow, the eating/drinking sounds positively freak me out. Whether it's my own character eating or one of my neighbors 40 tiles away. Those same sounds in real life would inspire the same reaction..just something that at best makes me twitch and on a bad day makes me want to punch something. Is there any way at all to disable JUST those sounds?
  8. As a new player to Wurm, the fact that animals don't make any sounds during their normal non-combat state, has felt very strange to me. Especially considering how much effort has been put into making the game so immersive otherwise. Something as simple as hearing a horse whinny or snort, a cow moo, a chicken cluck, a cat meow, a dog bark, an incoming wolf pant, a bear grunt etc - could enhance the immersion ten-fold. Right now these silent animals make them feel like lifeless game robots. The other day I tried out a branding iron for the first time and was absolutely shocked to hear the horse suddenly neigh in response to the pain! So the sounds are there, but are only used for when the animals are fighting/hurting? It goes without saying that I don't want the game to sound like a zoo 24/7 - however an occasional sound from nearby animals would enhance the atmosphere a lot! The sounds would not have to be attached to any sort of trigger, hell I'd be happy to just hear them once in a while. However if you really wanted to make things fancy it would of course be super cool if horses for instance snorted or pawed the ground upon grooming, or if one or two whinnied upon approaching the horse pen. This would also make tracking down wild animals more fun. I think back with much warmth to my Ultima Online days and keeping my ears open for a possible horse neigh in hopes to find a nightmare. And while we're talking about sound, it would be cool that the closer you got to the shoreline, the more you could hear the sound of seagulls to accompany the lap of the waves. When inland or on high mountains you could instead hear the sound of a hawk pass over once in a while. These sounds could help you navigate when lost in the middle of a huge forest as well. "Go towards the water, go towards the sound of seagulls"
  9. I have an issue I can't figure out how to fix. I think I may have done this on purpose in the past and now I can't figure out how to reverse it. When I plug in my earphones, all sound is directed into them except for Wurm. I have Windows 7, which from what I have searched does not have options to choose the output device for different programs. I have also searched the wurm forums, and google for wurm/audio keywords and not found the answer. Is there a secret setting in Wurm? My computer is Windows 7, and this happens while running regular wurm client or unstable client.
  10. Just wanted to notify those who need to be notified. When I enable ambient sounds i noticed a huge drop in fps. Seems sounds stack up big time on the ram, at least this is my theory.
