I mean, it's one of the few things I don't like in Spelunky. It's just so unnerving and clashing with the rest of the game.

Does it come off obnoxiously loud to anyone else?

Hadn't really noticed. But since all the sounds are .wav files in the sound folder, you should be able t reduce the volume pretty easily if you want.

Considering how dangerous UFOs are, I'd say it's a good thing they make a noticeable sound when they start moving. It never really bothered me, though.

Well the sound effect attracts more to children, that is why, the sound must have kept loud and catchy. It get as dangerous effects as UFO actually are.

That makes no sense besides the part of how dangerous UFO's are. I understand their lethality (infact my last run was ended inadvertently by trying to avoid one of the damn things) but the sound just rapes my ears. Also, look at the Tomb Lord. It makes no sound besides when it's flies hit a wall, and it's more deadly than a UFO, so your argument falls a bit flat.

Yeah man!  Grin I appreciate it, I do.

Tomb Lord's attacks may be more devastating, but his movement pattern is much simpler than a UFO's, and he doesn't actively seek out and chase the player.

On the subject, I was listening for the sound while playing Spelunky the other day, and I really didn't notice it being much louder than anything else. If it's loud enough to hurt your ears, maybe you just have the volume too high in general?

Not understand about what?

Please don't be vague about that.

You're right, I don't understand. I don't understand why, in the entire time Spelunky's existed, that you're the first and only person who's ears bleed because of the UFOs. I don't know what the problem is, but it seems like you're the only one who has it.

Sorry if that sounds mean. Sad

It was our conversation, so it kinda made more sense if you're in it.

No harm done, I modified the issue myself. And I noticed this on a few computers (leading me to believe it's not my issue so much per-say). But the issue is over now, and my ears no longer bleed from it.  Grin
