Hello truckers,

so i have this question.

As my simrig is getting almost perfect (FF steering wheel, homemade SKRS shifter, buttonbox, triple screen and so on), graphic and controls are fully satisfying. The next logical step will be a sound equipment upgrade.

For now, i use a nice HiFi stereo setup of two speakers, one subwoofer and a good amplifier. So my sound now is 2.1


The change could be a upgrade to a 5.1 system. But first i wan't to know, if it is worth the investment. So i need to know, if ETS2 is actually supporting 5.1 setup and if it makes difference.

So tell me, if you have any experience with ETS, ATS and 5.1 setups.

The questions i do have:

Is there a full 5.1 channel implemented? Can you hear the difference? I mean, not only between left and right channel, but also between front and rear?

Is upcomming FMOD implementation going to support it? Someone allready tried with ATS 1.37 beta?

I can't test this myself, because of the recent setup. And investing in 5.1 upgrade i consider only, when i'm sure, it brings me something new...



Thanks very much in advance for any response and tips.

Greetings,

Mischa

Some say, I'm addicted to ETS2. But then I say. No, it's ProMods, it's a way of life.
No. 3 forum spammer!

Surely i've done that before asking.

The only answer it gives are some issues with surround headphones. Nothing, i can use to answer my questions.
Also the discussions on SCS forum and Steam discussions do not deliver any usefull info.
Still, everything is only guessing, especially about FMOD and 5.1

I have a 5.1 setup and ATS 1.37 beta has surround support as has older versions, i think it sounds good, as does older versions, you hear overtaking traffic pass from rear to front, ambient sounds from back speakers, the release of compressed air is herd from back speakers etc. I have when i think about it never played in 2.1 / 2.0 sound configuration so cant tell if it is a huge difference thou,
