[SOLVED] Voice playback not working since update.

#1 Post by Rainbow Wavedash » Sun Sep 11, 2016 10:32 pm

Hey folks. We decided to migrate our game from 6.18.13 to 6.99.11, and it's going pretty smoothly. A few hiccups here and there where expected, but we're having some trouble playing vocal lines now. From what I can tell, the code is still the same, but it's just displaying as text in the what box.

Was there a change to the formatting that I'm not seeing? I'm going by the documentation here.

Code: Select all

voice "sound/voice/ts/call.wav"

Hm... That doesn't make a lot of sense to me. It's almost like it's treating the voice as if it was a character. Did you define a character named voice, somehow?

If you can't solve it, send me the code so I can pick it apart.

Huh. Yeah. Looks like someone defined a generic, off-screen "Voice" character in the middle of one of the script files. I never noticed it because it didn't cause any problems before. How strange.

And now the answer seems painfully obvious after the fact. Thanks for the direction.
