Talking about Starlancer, is there a way to force it 24bit colors depth? Because the color depth is really low on recent OSs.

I put another file.

IW Battle


It's between Schmack remaster and mine. Mine was quite weird to hear because that didn't fit to the global ambiance of the track but here it fits more to the general ambiance without sacrificing some punch and clarity.

@ Schmack : Many thanks to you for your criticism that allowed me to push this remaster so high. Now I'm satisfied because you showed me a way to recreate the ambiance and also avoid background noise. I just combined our 2 works to give something better. I would like to know what you think about that.

I'm creating a 2nd redo, here it's better because I take in count every aspect of the spectrum, I check everything. I will post some samples tomorrow but first, I have to check if the CD soundtrack is better than the current material. I think you will prefer this remaster than the last one I did, it give me the impression that I'm in front of an orchestra without any speakers, it's very spacious and real.

I've found the way, I just equalize before 10kHz and after it's flat. For example I boost 10 kHz for about 6 dB then higher frequency have the same boost. I'm doing a sort of shelving filter with a corner frequency of 10k and not a peaking filter with a center frequency at 20k. We have no clue of what it should be after 10k, so I let them with the same slope but I have boosted them and the sound is not too harsh to hear, the result is nice, despite it's not as fantastic as my first days on this remaster, no more thrills now.

PS : Omicron musics get severely hurt by the mastering, and now, it's really clear after my remaster.

Thank you! Bolt and Schmack.

Schmack, your master in the lows is nice and reflect totally what it should be. But in the highs the sound lacks of punch and remind me too much the low quality master of the CD soundtrack, you have to remind that the CD OST is here to give the data, if the treble line is not like the vanilla OST, it cannot make the spatialisation correct and make the sound compressed.

Kusari is normally cold and spacious, it allows you to breath like when you are under the see, the sound design tends to remind you of documentaries music. It's something between calmness (zen mood) and brightness (sparkling blue everywhere so higher trebles).

I concede that the background noise is changing and the sound become noisy. There is a VST called Voxengo Redunoise that can learn the noise via the spectrum for that, it's incredible!

Strangely, the vignette is inside the population zone. I think the game doesn't know what to do.

Try to put encounters in the exclusion zone near the base. It's the case for Chugoku.

I made some comparison and your's is more accurate in the high mids from 1k to 6k, as for mine, that was before I made a refined process, that wasv one of my first files, so it isn't the case for all the files of the comparison pack. I put a screenshot of the spectrum of vanilla, schmack one and my one.

We are both right. But I want to make it! Schmack, you've already done a lot for this community, so could you let me do that? please? It makes me happy and allow me to work in one of my beloved domain. If I struggle with this task I will surely ask for some help but for now it seems that I prefer to do this myself. Do not believe it's against you, I really like you, it's just to force me to do a project and you've a lot of work to do with your OpenGL wrapper, it's a long and tough task to do, concentrate you on this, you've no time to lose in this, you're not Atlas!

Thank you for sharing your opinion. I have taken it into account.

Wow! I will have a bunch of work to do! I shouldn't have watched the file number... I have to find some energy to make it. (I think after some done files, it should recharge batteries. ^^ ).

Now every day I will make a report. It could allow me to make a certain number of file per day.

PS : ATH-M50x, rather a bassy one but not as bassy as certain measurement shows, Audio Technica is renowned for their headphone quality in audiophile world. It's a nice choice though, despite my linearity fanaticism, I already owned bassy headphone (Superlux HD 681) and the sound remained clear, and also the treble was piercing but every time I looked at a meas site to equalize them... '~' But there is a website called Golden Ears which shows quite accurate curves. Make sure that curves are green and blue (I didn't try to test them but I trust their Head and Torso Simulator. I have to buy a HD 668B to test.)

OK! When you have the time, make your decision.

You can compare them with speakers too because I just changed the trebles.

Some exclusion vignettes have exclusion zone inside but that's not the rule. Exclusion for NPC?

...

NPC exclusion when there is a mission that cross the patrol path?...

I really don't know, I have to take all the systems to see. It's hard to tell the difference because in the map read from FL Mod, it's never the same thing.

Can you send me the system via PM to see? Please? Because your zone is really far from the base! I need a visual. Have you tried to change the zone size?

Why no one else wants to reply to this topic? And votes for one of the propositions? Are you waiting that I do the work? I would like to have some opinions on the comparison, I want to give the best material for the community so once again, I would like to have your opinion.

Have you tried to change the field to "open"? Because in the Honshu system, there is only open field vignette type and the mission are shown in the bar anywhere when it's a base destruction mission type.

Have you tried to use FL Mod Studio?

I think that Open is for mission accessible from every base, the others?...

Freelancer remaster comparison.

Content :
- CD OST
- Pink noised master = 1st remaster
- FL remaster = CD remaster based on vanilla master.

I create a poll to see which is the best (and don't forget to use headphones!)
