[SOLVED!] Unable to play .wav file sound?

#1 Post by sasquatchii » Tue Dec 12, 2017 11:12 pm

Hi! I am having a bit of trouble getting a specific sound file to play in my game! Here's a snippet of what I've got:

Code: Select all

label feel_action:
    laika "The bed I'm in is hard and small."
    laika "I think there is something behind me, my tail has touched it." 
    laika "But I can't turn around to check."
    laika "When I lie down, I notice two strange things next to my head. They are cold and metallic."
    laika "When I lick the strange thing a tiny piece of food comes out." 
    laika "Water comes out of the other thing. It's not a lot, but I feel better."
    laika "When I turn my head, it feels like something is stuck to me." 
    laika "I really want to scratch at it so it goes away, but my leg won't reach it."
    play sound "sounds/34878__sruddi1__whine1.wav"  
    laika "I hope it goes away soon."
    jump choices
I've also uploaded the game file to google drive if anyone wants to poke around and take a look: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1EVt0F ... fp4Z0V__0u

Any help or ideas would be much appreciated!

I have reencoded audio file. It should work now. Apparently, RenPy wants 16bit PCM file and won't accept 24 or 32bit.

Thank you so much, Ocelot!!! The file you attached works perfectly! i would have never thought about reencoding it (I dont even know how you would do that) so you saved me a ton of time and frustration!! I really appreciate your help :)
