Well, yeah, there are a number of sounds in Mysteries of the Ancients
that could use better sounds. For example, the sword sounds are ok,
but I wouldn'tobject to finding better sword sound effects. The fire

could definitely be improved.

2009-03-10 Thread shaun everiss
well good zenheisers will work the hd202-205 205 is good, costs usually 219 
bucks or so but some dealers like soni will cut a large ammount off the things 
by default, and if you buy something else they will cut loads more off it, I 
got a digital recorder  for 100 from about 150 and the headphones for 090 from 
about 119 bucks.
With storage bag so they don't break.
these are not surround sound per say but they are bigger, and allow the full  
effect of the soundcard.
Now if you got say a soundblaster 5.1 card and the system to go with it then 
your sets whould work with it.
I know zarmon sell surround  sound phones I think but the bigger they get the 
more likely they will break, I kept losing 40 buck sets all the time.

where does one get surround sound headphones? I'd be interested in any info 
you guys can provide, as well as your experiences. Surround sound headphones 
don't really sound like they'd be all that great. I doubt we'll get the same 
experience as we'd get with a surround sound system, but I could be wrong 
about this. if the headphones sound real good and you guys give me some good 
recommendations then it'll definitely be worth the cash

 yes, there is no doubt that headphones for a game in stereo allows for the 
 best experience, unless you are into getting bone rattling bass out of your 
 games.
 I considered doing true surround sound for rail racer, but in asking around 
 it seemed very few gamers out there have dolby 5.1 setups, and even fewer 
 surround headphones.  I have a set of medusa surround headphones, and for 
 the main stream games it works with, it is awesome, but I doubt many 
 accessible gamers will be willing to shell out $120 for a set of headphones 
 just for a gee whiz factor.

Hi Charles,
Thanks, but that makes me feel a bit guilty. One of the things I imagined 
when creating the Genesis 3D engine was a full virtual reality in 3d. Not 
just 3d audio, but an actual 3d environment as well. Personally, from my 
tests the best way to get the full experience is by using headphones, and 
if you have a set of 3d headphones the experience is even better. So I 
didn't really design the engine with speakers in mind although that option 
is still available of course. Imagine my future games like Tomb Hunter II 
etc sounding like Shades of Doom with, but in a true 3d environment as well.
I guess what I am saying is it is hard to really do what the sighted game 
companies are doing such as 3d FPS style games and stick to a simple stereo 
format like MOTA uses. With MOTA that is fine since there is only really 
left and right to deal with. In other games you will have left, right, 
foward, backward, up, and down to deal with. That's considerably more to 
think about and a lot more to listen to. Also trickier to figure out as 
well.

Hi Yohandy,
If you are looking for top quality surround sound headphones I recommend the
Medusa Pro Gamer 5.1 surround sound headset produced by SpeedLink. The 
headset  is priced between $125 and $150, but you get everything 
including the kitchen sink with it.
You get a European and U.S. A.C. wall adapter, you can power them off of 
your USB port, and it has three chords which plugs into your left, 
center, and right channels on your surround sound sound card. It also 
has an atached boom microphone which plugs into your mic jack so you can 
use it for podcasting, Dragon Naturally Speaking, or any other voice 
input. They also are comfortable to ware for hours so that is good as 
well. All and all a great buy.

They actually do give the surround sound effect?  How do movies sound using

Hi,
I am interested in the medusa headset you mentioned. Do you know where 
something like that can be purchased? I looked around in Amazon and nothing 
came up for the medusa.


As a side note, there are other headphones with 5.1 surround sound that are 
much cheaper then the medusa, and from the customer reviews some of them are 
pretty good for the money. The prices I saw were as low  as 30 dollars. . I 
guess the point is, that people are not necessarily needing to blow a lot of 
money up front for headphones to play their 5.1 surround sound  game of 
choice.

Thanks,

 yes, there is no doubt that headphones for a game in stereo allows for the

 I considered doing true surround sound for rail racer, but in asking 
around it seemed very few gamers out there have dolby 5.1 setups, and even 
fewer surround headphones.  I have a set of medusa surround headphones, and 
for the main stream games it works with, it is awesome, but I doubt many

Hi Charles,
Thanks, but that makes me feel a bit guilty. One of the things I imagined 
when creating the Genesis 3D engine was a full virtual reality in 3d. Not 
just 3d audio, but an actual 3d environment as well. Personally, from my 
tests the best way to get the full experience is by using headphones, and 
if you have a set of 3d headphones the experience is even better. So I 
didn't really design the engine with speakers in mind although that option 
is still available of course. Imagine my future games like Tomb Hunter II 
etc sounding like Shades of Doom with, but in a true 3d environment as 
well.
I guess what I am saying is it is hard to really do what the sighted game 
companies are doing such as 3d FPS style games and stick to a simple 
stereo format like MOTA uses. With MOTA that is fine since there is only 
really left and right to deal with. In other games you will have left, 
right, foward, backward, up, and down to deal with. That's considerably 
more to think about and a lot more to listen to. Also trickier to figure 
out as well.

where does one get surround sound headphones? I'd be interested in any info 
you guys can provide, as well as your experiences. Surround sound headphones 
don't really sound like they'd be all that great. I doubt we'll get the same 
experience as we'd get with a surround sound system, but I could be wrong 
about this. if the headphones sound real good and you guys give me some good 
recommendations then it'll definitely be worth the cash
