Having trouble with playing a sound

5 posts in this topic

So, I had this silly idea to customize the ExileServer_object_player_event_onMpKilled.sqf so that a sound would play on a Bambi kill as well as a Team kill. My initial test is not going as well as I had hoped. I do not receive any errors or warnings in my RPT. I even setup a diag_log to to verify that the proper variable was being passed through and that the IF statement itself was working. The diag_log entry appears in the RPT and it is giving me the correct variable values. So, that tells me that the IF statement is working. However, the sound just doesn't play. I've also made sure that my .ogg files were under 50k. Could it be volume? I'm stumped...

class CfgSounds
{
  sounds[] = {bambikill,teamkill};
    class bambikill
    {
        name = "bambikill";
        sound[] = {"bk.ogg", 1, 1};
        titles[] = {};
    };
    class teamkill
    {
        name = "teamkill";
        sound[] = {"tk.ogg", 1, 1};
        titles[] = {};
    };
};


This is my ExileServer_object_player_event_onMpKilled.sqf
I added _killCase on line 12.
I assigned _killCase a value of 0 on line 22.
I added _killcase values for each of the _killType cases on lines 65, 74, 83, 94, 102, 112 & 123.
I added my IF statement at line 237

I think the issue you're having is that this file is a serverside file so you're effectively trying to play that sound on the server, not the client.

I was doing some digging and found a post from someone who was having trouble getting a triggered sound to play for the clients. The suggested fix, which seemed to work for him was to change his playsound line to "soundclass" remoteExec ["playSound"];

Can't hurt to try that in this case. However, am I over-thinking this?

@kuplion I just tested  "bambikill" remoteExec ["playSound"]; as opposed to the playsound "bambikill"; that I used originally and IT WORKED!
The volume was very low, but I heard the sound. Now, I am just going to adjust the volume in the description.ext until the volume is right.

Nicely done! :D
