Backfire Mod

EDIT: Version 2.0

Very early version, feedback appreciated but please state which car you are using and what needs changing.

Volume control will come in an update.

Under no circumstances is it possible to get this program working without reading the installation instructions! It's very simple, but without reading how to install you just wont do it. A full guide is in the readme, for the impatient here's a quickie:

Modify the last few lines of your cfg.txt file to read:
Code:
OutGauge Mode 2
OutGauge Delay 30
OutGauge IP 127.0.0.1
OutGauge Port 39999
OutGauge ID 0
Then run the program, run LFS, enjoy it, then post here moaning like you always do

You can download the program from here:
http://www.simtouringcarcup.com/backfire.zip
Sample Video

Wed AM: Version 2.0 Released - ReDownload if necessary

aw.. no visual effects though

haven't tried it, just looked in zip, how does it really work though, are there certain times when your car would backfire or.. what?

I've put in backfires on engine overrun and coming off the throttle for now, it'll need tweeking as it's literally just over an hours work and i'm going to bed in a few minutes, but I need feedback across a variety of cars and opinions before I really know how to tweek. I only tested FOX around SOC and it seems ok.

Ive just tried it with both the lx6 and rb4. It sounds pretty good when gears change (using auto), a little pop or two. When off the throttle I feel theres a bit too much, sounds like the car is a proper old banger on its last legs :X, maybe change the frequency of the pops to a little less? Also Pop3 and pop4 sounds well like a fart when played again and again, needs to sound a little more aggressive imo.

I kinda like it, but it really is too much. I drove on lap around AS club with the XRG. When I brake and release throttle for the first corner, I always keep my throttle up a bit, and the sound was horrible! It was like my car was going to fall apart, and I even slowed down too much because I was scared of the sound After my lap I parked the car and the sounds kept playing. I was doing nothing.

Here is a video of the lx6 around AS Cadet for those that cant get this working. There are a few good sounds but overall it happens far too often and most of the sounds dont fit with the car sound of LFS.

lol! impressive so far. Indeed it does sound like an old banger, but at least this is a good step forward.

Sounds like some horses galloping and cowboys whiping them, Heee Yah!!!!!

Not tried it yet, but already downloading (my father would kill me if I tried it now ). Sounds very promising, and at last we have an OutGauge-Mod

edit: Just read the "exhaust sounds" thread... that was quite fast

Same here. I've extracted the zip to the root of my LFS folder and modified the cfg.txt file, however when I run backfire.exe the window appears and then disappears straight away (as if it's been closed by the OS). Checked Task Manager and no backfire.exe running in the background.

Running LFS U16. Any other info you want?

That vid sounds broken, the engine overun is jamming on, I just looked at the code and it seems I altered it by accident when doing the throttle lifting sounds so im fixing that now, it definately isnt how it's meant to be on that video, the driving style of the LX is really exagerating this bug, I will fix as soon as I can but I do goto work so might not be until tonight :/

If the program crashes on startup then you probably have that UDP port in use, same for if you hear nothing. I will add some error checking into the program and report errors so we can be sure.

Oooops, fixed and uploaded I could explain what I did wrong, but it would make me sound even more geeky than I already am.

My only issue is with the sounds. If i could have pop3 playing everytime i was hard on the downshift i think it would sound really good. Currently it seems there is always a sound on upshift but only sometimes on downshift.

When you lift off from high revs there is bangs all the way to very low revs, doesn't feel real somehow. I would say that less firing would be better. One bang! per downshift or less. But good work And you weren't the first one to think this
http://www.lfsforum.net/showthread.php?t=10279&page=3 but don't know how near releasing that is :P

aye - people have asked for backfires several times since i've been on the forums

I made it bang quite a lot because when i've watched GT's and F3's that's what they do, although it is perhaps still a bit excessive. I am working on expanding this and allowing each car to be configued differently, also i'm putting in some other sounds but it's a bigger project and wont be so fast
