A pack that adds higher quality sound effects and more sound variety.

  • High Quality Sounds
Mod Information

This pack of sound effects was initialy put together by me for "UFO:The Two Side" game some time ago. Version 0.9 was a quick port to OpenXCom, but it lacked many sound files. Since version 1.0 mod covers all of the old sounds + adds some more (like different launch sounds for craft missiles, separate fire effects for pistols/rifles/heavy guns...).

I made this mod mainly for myself, since I love playing on headphones and those old cracky sounds just spoiled much of the gameplay fun for me. I thought I'll share it, hopefully some othe people will find it usefull.


Works with OpenXCom 1.0 as well as with latest nightly builds and Final Mod Pack - see installation instructions.



This pack doesn't actually REPLACE old sounds. Original sounds are still there, and if you won't like this new sounds, you'll just have to disable the mod in game options.

Install Instructions


OpenXCom v.1.0:
- Copy "Ruleset" and "Resources" directories into your OpenXCom "data" folder. Launch the game, go to game options, and enable the "HQSounds" mod in the "mods" section.

OpenXCom latest nightly builds:
- Copy the whole "HQSounds" directory into "DocumentsOpenXCommods" folder. Launch the game, go to game options, and enable the "High Quality Sounds" mod in the "mods" section.

Final Mod Pack version:
- Copy the whole "HQSounds FMP" directory into "DocumentsOpenXCommods" folder. Launch the game, go to game options, and enable the "FMP High Quality Sounds" mod in the "mods" section. Make sure this mod is loaded AFTER Final Mod Pack.
