Did the latest Ren'Py update break your sounds? Here's the fix!

Not sure if anyone else experienced this issue. Ren'Py now handles mono sounds differently.

This step-by-step is going to cover how to use the software Audacity to cohere your game sounds.
The solution is pretty simple!

1) Open Audacity
2) Open your Mono sound file.
3) Go to Tracks > Add New > Stereo
4) Press Ctrl + A to select all.
5) Go to Tracks > Mix & Render
6) At the bottom left of Audacity screen, set your 'Project Rate (Hz)' to 44100.
7) Export the sound as a 16-bit wave file, overriding your old sound.

These steps should fix any playback issues caused by latest Ren'Py update(s).

Hope this helps someone else! (Goes back to harmonizing all 116 sounds for his game, lol).

Note: If this is in the wrong subforum, I apologize. Feel free to move, as I didn't know where to post this.

Code: Select all

define config.equal_mono = False
Seems easier.
