I've spent a bit of time integrating the excellent sound design of EABF into a replacer for MB. Most main weapons have new/improved sounds, the same goes for Force Powers and also Lightsaber effects.

The sounds modified are:
Flamethrower
Jetpack
A280 - Primary and Alternate fire
E-11 - Primary and Alternate fire
Bowcaster -Primary fire
Westar M5 - Primary and Sniper fire
EE3 - Primary and Sniper fire
Force Powers - Grip, Jump and Lightning
Pistol Level 3
Projectile Rifle
Clone Rifle - Primary fire
T-21 - Primary and Alternate fire
Lightsaber - New deflect, idle-hum, swing, ignite and shutoff (currently bugged), body-hit, block and kill sounds. Body-hit sounds and death swing sounds are characterised by a long sizzle, whilst regular blocks are bassy but short. Saber-bounce sounds have not been changed as of yet.
Impact sounds - Wall impacts and death impacts.

Planning on updating it regularly, the EABF sounds are highly customisable so endless new sound combinations can be made.


Before You Download!
Note there is a bug regarding the A280/DLT and EE3, the A280/DLT sounds sometimes get replaced by EE3 sounds and won't play their specific sound. Not sure what causes this.
There is also a bug regarding manual saber ignition/shutoff sounds (suing reload), currently they seem to be hardcoded to use the default sounds (or they are currently server-based). I cannot fix this.

- Criticals - These have a short sizzle at the end, similar to bodyhits but much a much shorter sound
- Parries - These sound almost like saber blades bouncing off one another
- Perfect Blocks - These shimmer-type sounds are similar to the bounces from parries, but a lot longer and more recognisable
- Semi-Perfect Blocks - These are sounds that have long buzzes as a tail

v2.1.1 - Compatible with MBII 1.5.11
- Added new sounds for Mind Trick and Sense/Seeing (much less likely to cause tinnitus)
- Mind Trick has 2 different pitches, a low pitched ring for activation and a higher one for ending
- Fixed file format inconsistensies in .sab files

You have to remove the saber sounds more than likely
yea but i cannot tell which ones to delete, even though they are there, if its just sounds it shouldnt have the risk of players actually using that saber and it bugging out for me right? cus if thats the case then i really don't mind

Risen once more, I'll begin work on a version compatible with 1.6 in the near future, probably do it from the ground up. In the meantime it's probably best to remove any saber files in order to work properly, downside is you don't get any custom saber sounds anymore but the blasters should work given they haven't been altered in the base MBII files.

:) A lot of updates to BF2 since I last updated this, so plenty more stuff to work with. Might have to extract all the sounds again however so that'll take a while, and I'm also praying that the hardcoded saber off sound has been removed but I'm not holding my breath.

It's likely incredibly easy to update. Making the old ones work with new versions of course- but ripping new sounds from SW BF2 EA would be more of a lengthier task.

The most I've ever done before was (among using this pack) added BF2 (2005)'s clone rifle "teets" you hear from the game. It could sound a bit fucky on CR3 but this probably isn't incredibly difficult to update.
