Weapons don't have sound

Post by twilight » 27 Dec 2007, 12:13

I've tried my shortsword and my scythe, but none of them make any
noise. This is with the Sfx volume turned all the way up. I hear the
music from the game, but not the sound from my weapons or my
character attacking the monster. And the monsters don't make any
sound either.

The sounds are there under C:\Program Files\The Mana World\data\sfx
But they arn't working.
And they play in Winamp just fine so I don't think it's the ogg files.

Can someone help me?

I've had a similar problem, and I thought I had solved it when I modified the sound settings on my computer, but I'm still experiencing it. I randomly get either "static buzzing" instead of sound, no sound at all, or sound playing normally (but low volume). So I don't really know what's going on.

I don't get any music at all, but that seems to be because the music files don't get packaged when you download and compile the source from svn.

I'm assuming you're talking about the tmw-music package that comes with Debian or Ubuntu. It won't work with a version of TMW that you compiled manually unless you make it look for the music files in the right place. If you don't know how to do this, the easiest thing to do is to also manually install the tmwmusic package (download from our SourceForge files page) to where the rest of your TMW data is.

I create the sub directory tmw/data/music. But still no sound!!

There is the log of tmw:

Well, where did you actually create that subdirectory? If you compiled TMW after running plain "./configure", the default prefix is usually /usr/local and you'll have to stick the music into /usr/local/share/tmw/data/music. Of course, you can compile with any other prefix using "./configure --prefix=...".

For the next version we do plan to make the searching for the music files more intelligent, though. So that it will also work when they are simply copied into data/music where you untarred the source.
