Are the new ambient sounds too loud?
Due to a relatively high percentage of "They're too loud (14.49%)" votes, I would like to remind that the original EE2 ambient sounds (before UP1.5) were up to 70% louder than the current new ones. With some UP1.5 update in the past, the original ambient sounds volume has been drastically reduced in order to hide their bad quality. Now, when the new high quality audio was purchased, the volume is a little bit higher than in the previous versions of Unofficial Patch 1.5, but still lower than it was in EE2 originally. Reducing the volume even more would make the new sounds unhearable. It's already impossible to hear the ambient sounds in late-game (during battles, explosions). I believe that the current volume settings is fine.
It's worth to mention that the ambient sounds can be disabled in the game, by: Settings -> Audio -> Ambient On.
