    Silencing the Announcer or Other Game Sounds (Replacing too!)

    Shutting up specific voice lines (like the announcer) is more convoluted than I expected, and finding a solution was difficult so I’m making a thread on how to do it with style, and with this method you can not only remove the voicelines, but you can replace them with custom ones too! This...

    Issue with ambient_generic

    In my map, I have a room that contains a jukebox, which is supposed to play an .mp3 file that I have created. I have the ambient_generic, a timer that re-fires after the whole song finishes and replays it, and a logic_auto to fire the timer when you join the map. Interestingly enough, in my...

    How to disable or control ambient sound effects for func_croc / prop_dynamic?

    I've added a 'func_croc' brush to my map, and I have a few 'prop_dynamic' crocodiles (lifted right out of cp_mercenarypark) as well. They are working as intended with players dying correctly and whatnot, but my issue is with the ambient sounds they make. My problem is that every few seconds...

    Looped .wav file sounds 'glitchy'

    I'm trying to work on an update to DR_Bank, and one point of feedback I had seen was about compressing my sound files. After trying to compress them I have found that Gaben's (the motivator) move sound became distorted. I heard the bug and tried to revert the change by extracting the same file...

    So I've been making this snowy map and wanted it to have a custom CAPTURING sound effect but when i tried different ways of setting it up the sound just loops without stopping even when I set an output to make it stop when nobody is capturing.

    What format does WAV files have to be in for source to play them? They'll play in hammer but not in game. The ones I'm using are Stereo 44000hz 32-bit Float or Stereo 22000hz 32-bit Float is this correct?

    Huge lag with soundscapes

    There are 4 different areas in the same room in my custom map (you can imagine it as 4 rooms next to each other connected with doors). These soundscapes are controlled by trigger_soundscapes and for each soundscape there is a trigger_soundscape covering the entire room. However when entering...

    How to add custom music?

    I'm currently creating a trade map and I want to play some background music in each specific room. It should be played separately so others outside the specific area can't hear it. I've tried with a point_clientcommand (as suggested by the community) but it doesn't work perfectly. anyone know...

    Sounds embed into .bsp do not work on workshop

    All the sounds I have embed into the .bsp are not recognised at all when the map is used from the workshop. I think this might be related to the sound.caches that are not created, but I'm not too sure. Can anyone tell me what is the problem? Embed textures and models work fine. I'm using...

    Help with making trains louder

    Hello again. I've been testing my subterranean koth map for awhile, and it features minecarts that travel along rails to help balance powerful high ground areas. The problem is, feedback always states that they are too quiet. I've cranked up the sound on the func_train entity to maximum, and...

    Issue with Ambient Generic

    I'm having this problem with an ambient_generic in my map. Whenever it plays its sound, it plays it at even volume throughout the entire map despite what I set the Max Audible Distance is set to. I checked the flags, and Play Everywhere is NOT checked. What's going on here?
