My sound files wont work on my skin, I think the problem is that there not encoded right. What settings do they have to be encoded at and whats the encoder that you guys use?

I've opened a random MP3 player misc sound (anger1.mp3): MPEG Audio Layer-3 44100 Hz 48 kbps Mono

To encode MP3 files (from wav or every other audio file), I use Goldwave with the lame_enc.dll encoder.

have you changed the sounds.cfg in your skin folder like this?

foldername m

have you created-edited the folder with sounds? (sounds\foldername\misc\allthesounds.mp3)

Have you created its own npc file? (file that tells the game which sounds to use too...)

If you've done everything I don't know how else I might help you. Probably ther are some small errors inside these files. You might post their content so I can see if there's something wrong...

There could be a few problems. I encountered this multiple times with sounds.

1. Make sure all of your folder path's are correct. Say if your skin is named [DA]Bob or something, make sure the path for your sounds is: sound\chars\[DA]Bob\misc (sounds in the misc folder).

2. Make sure that you actually have a sounds.cfg file. Once again, using the [DA]Bob name example, you should have a cfg file in your models\players\[DA]Bob\(files). It usually reads something like (say you use the Jedi model): jedi m or something along those lines. Make sure to make the top line the name of your skin. 3. Check and check again that your sounds are recorded in that exact format that N3G1@ provided, as one off sound has sometimes been known to throw off all of the sounds.

Hope one of those helps. Good luck, Havoc
