Heres a video.

I filmed this by loading the game, and saw Spinkstar in a Hunter, with no sound, Filmed it, got in a Hunter i spawned, and then sound for both worked.

This still occurs in r682, you have to get in a helicopter before the sounds will work. Once you have gotten in, you may get out and they will work fine until you close and reload MTA.

We recreated it by having a player in-game (editor, test mode) flying a helicopter, the other player joins and spawns near the first player so the helicopter is streamed in on spawn.

This small bug still exists.

Yes, that's why it says ACKNOWLEDGED instead of FIXED.

I find it kinda funny that this ancient bug still exists. No one has an idea how to fix it yet?
A fix would save me from writing a custom sound script for Helicopters on my server, that would be amazing.

@einheit-101 I guess they have an idea how to fix it because I remember many years ago Gamesnert who was actively developing at the time said that he was going to see what memory address it is that needs changing which you'd do by entering a helicopter and see what addresses changed then set that new memory address state without having to enter the helictoper, there is a list of memory hacks like this in 1 of the main MTA source files. I guess he either never got round to that, or it's more complex than that.

Not fully fixed:
If you enter a car near a helicopter, the engine sound of the helicopter suddenly stops until you stream oou and in again.

Because there are more issues with the helicopter sounds, I decided to add a video:

The engine sound of the car changes to a monotone one gear sound, if a helicopter streams in.

Should be fine now. Now by default aircraft uses same sounds as AI controlled aircraft in single player. However if you enter it (even as passenger), proper (unique) sounds are loaded.
