I was working on a mod, and I recorder these sounds for the cutscenes, and told it to play the sound I recorded, but the problem is during the cutscenes, I get this error "MP3 ERR: sound file is stereo", does anybody know how to fix this. Any help would be great.


I didn't make it!

Jedi Academy doesn't like Stereo format, so you'll need to convert your sounds to Mono. You need some audio converter for that task. Audacity is probably the best free program you can get, so look it up if you don't have it yet.

Tricorder is correct - when playing sounds, they always have to be mono. It's the only way that makes sense, if you think about it. Only music can be stereo.

The sounds have to be mono since they can come from different directions.

If a sound comes from the left JKA makes the sound coming (louder) out of your left speaker and vice versa.

You should extract one of Raven's sound files and see what bit rate they use. But be aware that you'll get that same error if the game doesn't like your sound file even if it isn't stereo.
