Did the weapons fire in space sound effects get changed on this last patch 20 Sept. It seems to be much louder and Phaser fire has a much anoying high tinty pitch to it now. Please look into it a fix it back. I have had to lower my volume on both my computers now and I can hardly here the nice background music.
I was experiencing this with my Anti-Proton cannons last night. They are much louder than they were pre-patch. They pretty much drown out all of the effect sounds. I've had to drastically reduce my effects volume slider to be able to play the game at my normal sound levels.
Antiproton weapons sound way much better now. They've gained a slight volume increase as well as a bass increase(you know like bass speakers) i think they mighta lowered APs whiney like phaser sounds too.
