FSX "Easter Egg"? Great for a laugh!

Recommended Posts

Those who have FSX and need a great laugh, open up the R-22 sound folder, and listen to XRotor.wav, XWhup.wav and XWind.wav... These were obviously left in by accident, as they are clearly the dev's "temporary sound effects" during development... :-lol

ROFL... I don't want to spoil the fun, so I won't tell you all what it is. All I can say is that it is worth listening to.

No Bill,How in the name of all that is good did you come across these files??I have a mental image of you, huddled over your computer late, late at night, just trying various things at random: "No, that's not funny....uh, nothing here....oh golly! Bingo!" :-jumpy-Rick----------- My System -----------P4 @ 2.53 GHz / 1GB RAM / NVIDIA GeForce 6800XT, 256MB / Windows XP Home

Well, I was up in a Robinson a few months ago and this sounds pretty authentic. OK it was about to go in for a service!

Wild!Do you remember the movie "Mars Attacks" where the Marsians only said "gak-gak gak-gak-gak" through the whole film. That was originally just dummy sound FX from the sound designers, but the director (Tim Burton i think) loved it, and kept it.With a little renaming you can swap the sounds and make a toy-chopper with ready-made sound!Eagle

Another beta tester noticed them first and I simply reported the find here because is IS funny.Now I have a mental image of this (unknown) ACES developer sitting in his office with the door closed, hunched over his microphone and hoping that no one would walk into his office and "catch him in the act," so to speak... :-laugh1 BURBLE-BURBLE-BURBLE-BURBLE... :-rotor

There are a lot of files in FSX that should have been pulled before it shipped. Have a look at the the following "textures" in the texture folder:Group1.r8Group2.r8Microsoft's pre-RTM review process has been lax for some time...

LOL !!!As real as it gets ... ;) There's a copter' training outfit that runs the R22's up in Whitecourt, AB - I'll stop by next time I'm up there just to double check - Although I'm pretty sure they went BUP BUP BUP BUP not BE BE BE BE. I'm still laughing picturing the dev with a mike doing this, thinking oh yea - this is gonna be the best FS version yet !Ahh, the joys we have some days ... Thanks Bill, I needed the laugh.Regards'Garett

In XRotor.wav, I'm thinking they did a rather poor job of editing it for the transition between the beginning and the end of the file. You definately notice a stark change when the file is on repeat at that point.Anyone up for for modifying the file to correct this, or perhaps creating a whole new better quality version?Thomas[a href=http://www.flyingscool.com] http://www.flyingscool.com/images/Signature.jpg [/a]I like using VC's :-)N15802 KASH '73 Piper Cherokee Challenger 180

I was hoping for even funnier versions, maybe somebody having his/her kid do something.Or maybe a sound.cfg file which actually does use this file. :)In fact, I think I will do that. At least the sound will approximate my skill as a 'copter pilot.Thomas[a href=http://www.flyingscool.com] http://www.flyingscool.com/images/Signature.jpg [/a]I like using VC's :-)N15802 KASH '73 Piper Cherokee Challenger 180

For those waiting for their free FSX for attending the convention, you can also hear these sounds in the fsx demo version.
