I have 8 sfx files in wav. format with a bit-rate of 32kbps. Can anyone tell me how I can get these to work? I think they need a higher bit-rate but how can I change it?

Your question would best be posted in the Modding Question Thread. Read this.

Lord_of_Orangutangs;4961593 Let's say that I have a couple of .wav files in the audio section of one of my mods. I know that I have to use sfxgroundunits.xml to code the audio in, and then go into the unit xml to give the unit its audio. I have tried this, but the unit ended up having no audio at all. Can someone shed some light on this?[/QUOTE] [QUOTE=JC9542;4961600]You may need the path info for the file before its name.

This is what I had to do when I was creating the setup for my Rodian SFX

Hey look I'm being quoted, I feel so knowledgeable :cool: just kidding. Anyhow this format worked for my wav files: 22050 Hz 16 bit mono. I'm pretty sure it was PCM uncompressed as well, there may be other formats that work as well. As for the actual conversion, you can download some sort of freeware/shareware sound editing program. I used Wavepad, and I've heard some decent things about Audacity. Try looking on CNET or sourceforge, both sites should have some decent sound editing programs. Depending on what program you get, it shouldn't be much more difficult than loading the sample file you want to use then doing save as and picking your format and options.

It looks like your bit rate is actually higher than one I used and higher than most other sfx files that I've seen used in other

The bit-rate I mentioned is on the file itself, but that's not a bad idea, I'll try that.
