    Default No sound when in the car in rFactor 1?

    I just did a clean install of rFactor 1 and I've installed the F500 mod but now I have no sound in the F500 cara when sitting in the garage or on track? I have all rFactor 1 sounds in Menus and in other mod's when I go on track just not with the F500 mod. I've deleted the F500 files and have re-installed them but same issue. Any suggestions would be much appreciated

    Check the Sound folder to see if F500 sounds are installed. Also some mods used sounds from the full install, including the original cars, so if you did a lite install, they may be missing.

    You can check the *.veh file to see where the mod is pulling the sounds.

    My clean install was a Steam install so I'm going to assume that all the required sound files would be included in that install. I've also done a integrity check with no errors but still no sound, I can hear my spotter when sitting in the car in the garage but no car sounds at all.

    My rFactor\sounds\F5000 folder has 4 folders in it, a F5K, Rhez, Secondary, and a TMTires. Each of these folders has wave files in them, the F5K folder has a F and a F2 folder that also have wave files in them.

    I'm totally confused as to what may be causing this

    I've done some more testing:

    I've copied the sound folder from another backup copy I have of rFactor and still no sound. When I go out on track I can hear the wind, I can hear the gravel when I go off track, I can hear the rumple strips just no engine sound in any of the cars in this F5000 mod.
