A realistic replacement for Valve's default ear raper.
I personally find some of the sound design in L4D2 rather odd. The melee weapons especially. A lot of them sound ugly and unpleasant. The chainsaw in particular had such a strange quality to the sound that it no longer really sounded like a chainsaw, but instead like a some dragster engine attached to a chainsaw. I got some real recordings to add a much needed realism to the chainsaw. It makes it sound much more like the real thing, and is much easier on the ears.
To install simply extract the "sound" folder into your Steam/steamapps/*username*/common/left 4 dead 2/left4dead2 folder. Be sure to back up the original.
EXCELLENT SOUNDS MAN! I was always wondering if they had put a Mini dragster engine in that chainsaw and now I can rest knowing that you have fixed that engine and mede it sound like a real chainsaw. AND MAN THE PREVIEW WAS AMAZING! like always...
Pros: Amazing sound. Extremely well Produced and let me just say; totally badass. Fits the l4d2 world perfectly, No scratching or hissing bugs. This chainsaw sound should be the default.
Cons: I find that the sound may be a bit too quiet. I really want to hear the power and i feel it lacks a little in the volume department. (Hence my Clarity rating of 8.5)
Improvements: I'd love to see you update this with maybe the default volume sounds, and include a separate folder with louder versions.
Notes: Other than what I've mentioned above, i think that you've made a purely awesome replacement here.
My only other suggestion would be to speak to Anders (maker of realistic soundpack l4d2), and see if you can get your sound added to his pack. Good work.
Ambience: Awesome, fits very very well in l4d2 as a very strong weapon.
Clarity: Very clear, no fuzzy compression bullshit or anything like that.
Realism: I feel like I'm slicing zombies in half with my own chainsaw.
