    ...about a week ago.

    Since valve had been lazy and gave the battleaxe the bloody bottle sounds, I tried to fix what they started.

    'course, now with the steam forums completely engulfed in mac prejudice and complaining(what else is new, though), the thread on them was completely obliterated and is now on something like page 20.

    I emailed robin...

    [​IMG]

    Submitted them...

    And then, one week later, we have today's update.

    "The Demoman's battleaxe now sounds like a sword."

    I read these words, and my system filled with adrenaline. I rushed to open GCFscape and was blown away by the fact that...there...were...no new sounds.

    Goddammit.


    I guess I want feedback on the sounds now.

    Also, I'm back.

    Eh, the least they could do is send a "Sorry, we haven't accepted your sounds". I mean, I did give them my Steam ID and email...

    I like the sound of them, the flesh hits sound a bit weak seeing that a giant tierod is smashing into them, but other than that i like the other sounds. =)

    Did you just take other weapon sounds and mash them up together? I heard the scouts bat in the pain train.

    There are up to around 9 different sounds used to compose each one, all variously fading in and out, chopped, pitch modified, the whole mess, plus a couple from the base source sounds in there. Took about 6 hours of tweaking and raging over them not sounding right before I was satisfied with them, so basically it's the exact same method as valve(See: L4D/2 sounds)

    The pain train did not contain the scout's bat.

    It makes sense that they would reuse their own content if what they already have is already appropriate. I'm also pretty sure they'd have had more complaints about it than your email which didn't even mention anything about the axe's sound.

    They sound really cool - it's a shame they didn't choose em.
    And welcome back, NovaSilisko! :)

    I sent the email before I had even uploaded the video, so I don't know if he ever even heard them.

    On a related note, does the pain train still have the wrong sounds?

    Time to revive this. Going to make some sounds for the Frontier Justice this time.
