OK, I'm gonna post this just once. Any other topic asking about this will cause rage. :D

kitteh's guide on how to tweak your own gun & teammate sounds

Program files > Battlefield2 > Mods > bf2 > Settings > Sound.con

1. Open sound.con in notepad.

2. One of the first few lines says:

rem ** Balance between 2d and 3d samples.
sound.setProperty "balance2d3d-default" 0.5
sound.setProperty "balance2d3d-eax" 0.5


This is default.

The numbers should both be the same, you can't have one on 0.7 and the other on 0.6.

0.5 = default sound, your gun is loud and your teammate-sounds as well.
1.0 = Your gun-sound is turned OFF completely (100%), same goes for your teammate-sounds (commander-spam).

3. Change it to whatever feels (sounds) good to you, it can be any number IN BETWEEN 0.5 and 1.0.

This means <0.5 is NOT RECOMMENDABLE (it will completely mess up your sound), lastly; 1.0> is NOT POSSIBLE.

4. Changing it to lets say, 0.75, means that the gun/team-sounds are 50% lower than they would be on default 0.5.

5. After changing these numbers to whatever you like, save sound.con (obviously).

FAQ:

6. It is NOT possible to change the volume of your gunsound and keep your teamsounds default (or the other way around) at the same time. You change it all, it's NOT possible to change it separately (that I know off).

7. Changing this is NOT ILLEGAL, It's NOT BANNED by Punkbuster. It's a con(figuration)-file for a reason, you can change it ingame too (via the ~ console).

8. I personally use:

rem ** Balance between 2d and 3d samples.
sound.setProperty "balance2d3d-default" 0.88
sound.setProperty "balance2d3d-eax" 0.88

Isn't there a way to do it in-game? Clicking the audio tab under options and turning one of the bars on the left to 0.

Or am I making this up?
Once I thought I was wrong, but I was mistaken

Since the numbers have to be the same... does this mean that when i have no commander sounds i also have no gun sounds?

"6. It is NOT possible to change the volume of your gunsound and keep your teamsounds default (or the other way around) at the same time. You change it all, it's NOT possible to change it separately (that I know off)."

May I ask you politely to actually read the post that I typed out for your question? :D

(team sound = commander as well).
