    (Sorry double post)Now I remember, I've yet done the driver update with audio, because when I transfered from socket 775 to i7 I downloaded the latest and nothing changed, besides the fact that was a full format...

    A simple question. Can someone teach me how to remove EVERY sound related to satellites' deaths? Or at least to Avengers' one...

    Just a thought, is it possible the problem is related to umbrellas? Just reading through your description of the issue that might also be possible?

    Best option is try turning off the sounds one by one. I'm sure @KillerKiwiJuice or one of the other talented modders can tell you what you need to do (I think it's pretty simple actually, there should be a sound event trigger in the unit json file, I'd guess just remove that line).

    I am planning on doing an optimisation pass for More Pew Pew soon, would you be willing to try it out again once that happens? Also, was it the update with the muzzle flash particles that gave you issues?

    I'm not sure which update it was, just that it was causing stuttering (possibly in combination with bigger explosions).

    My desktop machine is an AMD fx so was probably hitting against the single core bottleneck. Let me know when you're ready to test and I'll try the new version...

    I'm pretty sure that it is not related to Umbrellas, beacause it happens even with Avengers vs Avengers battles...always with that strange particular of Fog of War...I'll do ALL the test you want Dom314, but I can assure you that the issue happens with and without any mods...and I regular use your "Pew Pew" :)...ok...if KillerKiwiJuice or any angel-soul will help me disabling that particular sound (or familyo f sounds if it is related to all satellites) I'll can play again PA-T *_*

    Go to /pa/units/orbital/base_orbital/base_orbital.json
    Find:
    Code:
    "audio_cue":"/SE/Death/orbital",
    and remove it (including the comma!)
    Go to /pa_ex1/units/orbital/orbital_fighter/orbital_fighter.json
    Find:
    Code:
    ,"died":{"audio_cue":"/SE/Death/orbital"}
    and remove it (once again including the comma)
    That should remove the died sound effect for the avenger.

    *_* *_* *_* IT WORKS!!!
    OMG!!!
    Ehm ehm, sorry I'm so happy *_*!!!
    NOW, I've done the test only...now...because I've not been able to do it before; wasn't at home. 380 Avengers died perfectly smoothly; tried it double times because I wanted to be completely sure. IT WORKS!!! I've checked the audio thread utilization inside the Creative Panel and was minimal; I think that something about rendering explosions' audio inside the orbital zone is not well recognized and was givin' issues...I'm 95% sure about this because I've checked with all other orbital units and orbital buildings, and it STILL happens, but with Avengers not anymore...

    So, now I've a GREAT favor to ask you, @dom314; first of all thanks to you and all of the readers for help, but one last ask: May you please post here, as you've done yet for Avengers, the lines that I have to delete and from which file I have to in order to remove ALL explosions of orbital units and structures??? *_*
    Please, so I'll be FINALLY able to play the game after 5 month of TESTS to remove completely this stuttering *_*

    +1, in fact Dom if you fancy making this into a quick mod I've been noticing a bit of stutter with orbital so wouldn't mind trying this. Think it might be a useful addition on PAMM...

    Is it just explosions or is it weapons as well?
