View Full Version : Sound ??

21st Feb 2003, 22:04
I have been working on my current FM for so long that I haven't even attempted to make new FM's. I created a small "level" so that I could experiment with custom reskinning of AIs. Well, it's just a nice 30 foot tall, 24 wide, 22 deep open space with a cobble floor and a solid cube in the center. I have a gaslight on the block, and some AI's around it. Here's the problem -

I roombrushed it per normal, and placed my startpoint. Then I began the game and Hark! No footprints, no sound at all from the AIs, BUT I could hear the torch just fine! Has this ever happened to anyone? My current FM has no sound problems that I know of, but yet this new one has almost no sound at all! Dromed is laughing at me right now, I know it.

You haven't just shift+inserted a RoomBrush around the AirBrush have you? If you created your RBs manually, make sure they are overlapping the floor.

Have you built Rooms Database, Computed Pathfinding etc...

Yes, I did shift + insert. The room brush should overlap each side of the air brush, right? I already built room database and all that stuff. Is it possible to overlap it too much or not enough, then?

Perhaps you have a room brush within a roombrush - that will cause odd problems like you're describing. Or an accidental double room brush (like holding shift and hitting insert twice quickly)

Do you have your stereo on? :D :p Just kidding! I'm starting to greatly dislike roombrushes. Mine always come out as -1s. And people thought it was bad if you had RoomBrush 0...

Actually Dav, I've never had a prob with the -1's, they always change to a possitive number, its that Room 0 you have to watch out for. ;)

Is that the problem, then?

I just realized as well that when I reformatted my drive and installed XP that I reinstalled Dromed from the CD. I am going to install it from the Keep and see if that helps (other problems have been popping up as well, I didn't have half as many before reformatting and XP).

Have you script_load gen and script_load convict yet?
