bullet hit sound
how can i change the sound when bullet hit the body? please help!!!!
There are multiple different sounds used when a bullet hits a person/ped in GTA V. You can find some of them in 'collision.awc' certainly, & possibly also 'collisions.awc' as well (not sure). Both are located within 'RESIDENT.rpf':
'RESIDENT.rpf' vanilla/'game' folder location:
...Grand Theft Auto V\x64\audio\sfx\RESIDENT.rpf
'RESIDENT.rpf' 'mods' folder location:
...Grand Theft Auto V\mods\x64\audio\sfx\RESIDENT.rpf
You can use Ctrl+F3 in OpenIV to search for files in your game by name & even choose to search everywhere (vanilla 'game' folder & 'mods' folder) or only the 'game' folder, or only the 'mods' folder. Use the 'Search area:' drop down selection in the Ctrl+F3 search box to choose where you want to search.
Edit just the body hit sounds (no head/limb/feet sounds edited):
If you just want the sounds that are created when a bullet hits a peds body (ie not head or limbs or feet etc, but just the body), I think they are these ones:
Edit all hit confirm sounds for all parts of the ped's body:
If you want to find all the hit confirm sounds, no matter what part of the entire body they hit (head, limbs, feet, chest, back, etc, ie all body parts), I'm not sure where they all are, but I think I might have a way for you to find them all:
I presume, given you want to edit sounds you have done this already, but have to say:
Before starting this next part, it's probably a good idea to copy the 'x64' audio folder (this one: '...Grand Theft Auto V\x64') from your 'Grand Theft Auto V' root folder & paste it into your 'mods' folder so it ends up here: '...Grand Theft Auto V\mods\x64'. That will ensure that if later on you need to edit sounds, you won't be editing the vanilla sounds in place, but rather will be editing a duplicate of them in the 'mods' folder (that way, if you mess anything up, you always have a working copy of the files in the 'game' folder to go back to etc).
- Download the 'MP3 (Max Payne 3) Ragdoll Fall Sounds & Bullet Hit Sounds 1.0' mod.
- Open it & find the 'collision.awc' & 'collisions.awc' within it.
- Drop them into OpenIV in a random folder (create one somewhere).
- Right-click them individually & select 'Export to openFormats (.oac)'.
- Export them to a folder location of your choice (name it appropriately or export them to the Max Payne folder etc, so you know what is what).
- If you then look in that folder, you'll see a 'collision.oac'/'collisions.oac' file & a folder of the same name/s with all the '.wav' files in it.
Next, in OpenIV navigate to:
...Grand Theft Auto V\x64\audio\sfx\RESIDENT.rpf
- & export those versions of the files ('collision.awc' & 'collisions.awc') to a different location (name the folder 'vanilla' or something etc)
- Next, download WinMerge (100% free)
- Install WinMerge & then open it & select 'File' tab > 'Open' & a new File/Folder compare box will open.
- In the '1st File or Folder' browse box select the vanilla 'collision' folder you exported to openFormats earlier.
- In the '2nd File or Folder' browse box select the Max Payne 'collision' folder you exported to openFormats earlier.
- Now hit the '[Compare]' button (bottom right).
- WinMerge will then compare the files in both the folders & tell you which ones are different (they will be highlighted yellow).
- Somewhere in those yellow highlighted '.wav' files (~72 of them for 'collision.awc') will be the ones you are looking for:
Files in the Max Payne mod 'collision.awc' that are different to vanilla 'collision.awc':'
0x0058D71A.wav 0x01B1AF7D.wav 0x01F2DB91.wav 0x067740BD.wav 0x069240EF.wav 0x079F84BB.wav 0x098BE43E.wav 0x0A8CEB82.wav 0x0AF989C2.wav 0x0EC309A0.wav 0x0F4934FB.wav 0x126350E5.wav 0x13E9D3EC.wav 0x1828E420.wav 0x1843E452.wav 0x1A35D1A1.wav 0x1B0C873B.wav 0x1B87D5B5.wav 0x1BAF54B8.wav 0x1BF66406.wav 0x1C9FE55F.wav 0x1CB82D3F.wav 0x1CED9044.wav 0x1D9B494A.wav BODY_10.wav BODY_11.wav BODY_12.wav BODY_13.wav BODY_4.wav BODY_5.wav BODY_6.wav BODY_7.wav BODY_8.wav BODY_9.wav CHIPBOARD_4.wav FOOT_1.wav FOOT_2.wav FOOT_3.wav FOOT_4.wav FOOT_5.wav FOOT_6.wav FOOT_7.wav LIMB_1.wav LIMB_2.wav LIMB_3.wav LIMB_4.wav LIMB_5.wav LIMB_6.wav PED_CAR_BODY_COLLISION_1.wav PED_CAR_BODY_COLLISION_2.wav PED_CAR_BODY_COLLISION_3.wav PED_CAR_BODY_COLLISION_4.wav PED_CAR_BODY_COLLISION_5.wav PED_CAR_BODY_COLLISION_6.wav PED_CAR_GORE_COLLISION_1.wav PED_CAR_GORE_COLLISION_2.wav PED_CAR_GORE_COLLISION_3.wav PED_CAR_GORE_COLLISION_4.wav PED_CAR_GORE_COLLISION_5.wav PED_CAR_GORE_COLLISION_6.wav SCUFF_1.wav SCUFF_10.wav SCUFF_11.wav SCUFF_12.wav SCUFF_2.wav SCUFF_3.wav SCUFF_4.wav SCUFF_5.wav SCUFF_6.wav SCUFF_7.wav SCUFF_8.wav SCUFF_9.wav
- Some (LIMB/FOOT/BODY etc) will be easy to identify, other's may have their names in hex (hex are the ones starting '0x########').
- Have a listen through them one by one & see which ones you can identify as ped hit confirm sounds.
- Any you are not sure of, change them to another hard to miss sound (like a dumpvalve, or voice file etc), after that, reimport them by dragging the 'collision.oac' back into your 'mods' folder 'RESIDENT.rpf' & then load up the game & shoot some peds to see if they are the right ones or not.
- It's probably going to take a little time & quite a few sound edits/loads of the game to find them all, but at least it will be possible.
After you are finished with 'collision.awc', do the same for 'collisions.awc', until you find every sound you want to edit.
Any issues/questions, give me a shout in this thread
@a63nt-5m1th thank you for the reply i really appreciate the explanation but i have some issues when i try to change melee.awc sounds, all hit sounds stop working.
What format are your edited '.wav's? (they need to be 16-bit PCM mono files) & are you using openFormats to export & reinstall them? (ie always use right-click '.awc' > 'Export to openFormats', not 'Extract' or 'Export to WAVE (.wav)' etc)
As mentioned, make sure you export the '.awc' to openFormats first (right-click '.awc' > 'Export to openFormats'). You'll then get a '.oac' file & folder of the same name (with all the '.wav's in it). Edit the '.wav's in that folder:
For editing the audio files, Audacity is free & does it well:
In Audacity, leave the audio files as mono (don't convert them to stereo or anything). If your replacement sound is stereo, convert it to mono or delete one of the channels etc.
Some GTA V audio files don't follow this next rule, but usually it's best to make sure the file is the exact same length as the original. A good way to do this is to import the original & then make your replacement sound fit within the time of the original.
Once finished editing/replacing the sound in the '.wav/s select > 'File' tab > 'Export' > 'Export as WAV/Export Multiple...' etc & be sure to select 'WAV (Microsoft) signed 16-bit PCM' in the 'Save as type' dropdown before hitting '[Save]' & then '[OK]'.
Replace the original '.wav' file/s in the exported folder (the folder next to the '.oac'. Note: The '.oac' & folder have to have the same name to reimport successfully, just so you know) & then drag & drop just the '.oac' back into the original location in OpenIV to convert your replacement sounds to '.awc' format & replace the original '.awc' file.
Try that out & see how you get on
