Two Sound Effects for one Weapon

Post by Chiana » 06 May 2020, 17:34

Good Day. I would like to know if it is in any way possible to have 2x sound FX for one weapon. For Example, the startup sound of the Turret moving/targeting followed by the firing of the weapon. I am quite new to modding and I'm having some fun with designing more realistic sound fx for turrets and moving weapons. Some weapons need a .05 second delay before firing. Some help with that would be kind too.
In fact, Any help will be appreciated.

Thanx

I believe that two effects eg. when firing isn't possible, haven't checked though.

If you have any suggestions for updating the SFX then by all means, post it here. IMO the effects are a little bland.

Thank you very much for the reply.
Updating the sound Fx? You mean remastering the Sounds or re-coding the sound engine? because I am nowhere near that level.
I have been fishing around the net for free SFX and editing them to replace the current set. Slow going though.The 16 bit OGG file type does not make it easy. I do however have had success with a few samples.
The Grounshaker has sounds for Firing and Air-Travel. I just can't seem to figure out how that works.Thus it suggests that all the weapons are able to do so. Implementing that method could eg have a Lasercannon build up a charge (sound) followed by the discharge sound if timed correctly.

If you're interested in distributing them, or suggesting them for future inclusion in the game distribution, please be sure you have links to all of their official licensing information for each file, and (for bundling with the game) that the licenses are compatible with GPLv2+.

If you just want to do this for personal use, it's less of a concern. :lecture: 8)

OK, got it. Chiana, can you in any case, regardless of license, give an example on a sample you think is vastly superior? (and link to the current one as well)

Would be nice to check out and compare.
