Hello,
I have been working on the sound pack for the last year or so for the stock car community in rFactor2.
I have designed it to work with this spotter as he says a lot of stuff that the crew chief is saying in current sound packs.
My goal was to make is sound more authentic to NASCAR with my self as the crew chief and TJ Majors as the spotter.

You will need to get the latest version of Crew Chief to have the ability to add a 2nd crew chief before using this package.

You can download it here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/g2328qzuzbei4fq/CrewChief_Mike_v050.rar?dl=0

To install it just extract the package to your sounds folder or follow these instructions:

I hope you all like it and feedback would be great as I continue to add sounds and fix ones that do not sound right from the feedback I receive.

v0.50: initial release

Hi, I would like to try this out however.... The folder for base CC mentioned under Users\user-name\ AppData\ does not exist on my PC and i cant seem to find it. Any way you can explain this further? And as for Dropbox..... is that the only link for this?

Yes that is the only Link Right now. You need to make windows so you can see hidden folder as the AppData folder is a hidden folder by default.

Now that it is installed we need to make your PC show hidden folders.
Watch this video on how to do that.

ok. got the pack loaded i think right.

First off, thank you for taking the time and effort to make this pack. i know doing things like this isn't overly rewarding outside of self satisfaction and having people knock an honest effort can be disheartening. that being said, i feel like you want to make a quality pack that people will enjoy using and are actually looking for feedback from the community to improve the quality, so here it goes. i've only done a base level test of the pack on a test track in iracing thus far. maybe a dozen laps or so.

biggest thing to improve: sound volume. the stock packs sound crisp and easily override the little 155hp mx5 wound tight. if i didn't already know the basics of what the spotter was supposed to be telling me, i would never understand it with this sound pack.

sound quality, might go with volume. even in the pits or at low rpm some of the calls sound muffled.

my spotter never hit the next level of frustration and cussed me out. i kinda like the "sweary" option. might be cool if they had a smart ass reply like "between the lines. Mike! you learned this shit coloring in kindergarten!", but that might only be funny if it's a randomly used phrase. about the 5th time in a session it might get worn out.

again, thank you for putting the effort in to produce this sound pack and i will definitely be tracking for updates.
