Im trying to replace gun sound effects.. they dont work ingame, but I have renamed the sounds and deleted the old ones.. yet only the 'select' sound worked, however the 'alt_fire' and 'fire' didnt make any sound.. Er.. I mean.. I download a gun mod, go into sounds delete some of them then replace them with other sounds.. why doesnt it work ?
Are they in the right format? There's tutorials on this in the master sticky, there has to be.
they need to be in 44100 herz and mano
ok, but any idea hwo i convert them?
try using an audio converter like WAVER (dont worry its free) :google: up WAVER for more information :ditto:
Errm.. OK thanks for help!
Waver wasnt very helpful I dont think..
PS, Yahoo 100th post!
My method of converting sounds to a working format is a tad bit clunky, but it works perfectly with the freeware program called 'Audacity' (be sure to download the LAME MP3 encoders it supports)
First, you open up Audacity. - Choose the 'open' tab and search for the sound file you want to convert. - Open it in Audacity, there should either be a single window or two windows of Audacity open. If there's only one window open, open up a second Audacity. If there's two windows already, skip this step. - I've forgotten how, but there's a way to make Audacity record into only one channel. I found out how to do it from a "professional podcast" tutorial. - Search around for a box that has "Microphone" written in it and change it to Stereo Mix. Make sure you set the recording level to 0.1 (this gives the best possible result) and begin recording. - Play the sound on the other Audacity. The recording one will capture the sound in Mono format. - Crop the sound as needed (Done by selecting a piece of the sound and then hitting the delete key) and also adjust volume as needed (usually Audacity knows how loud the sound should be. - Export to WAV or MP3 as needed. Note if you're going to export a selection you should use "Export Selected As ***" not just "Export ***".
That should do it.
I use Wavepad. You have to download the mp3 editor component if you want to deal with .mp3 files. There both free and I highly reccomend it.
Actually I alredy own Audacity to record my music with. :S But Ive sorted it out now, using Audacity. Thanks.
