General Sound Configuration


ArmA 3's sound system became much more complex with the release of the Eden Update. Sound is not anymore a single sample (array respectively) with parameters, but a structure assembled from several layers with embedded audio features.

Process of sound configuration unification is still in progress (not all gameplay features uses this system), information about new implementations will be continuously updated.

This wiki page serves as a hub - linking you to the different elements of the system.
