play sound mid-game

Post by Shazdeh »

I've written a mission where you pick up someone and then you throw him in a destructor to make him die. Now, I want to make him scream before he die. How can i do that?

For that you should "reserve space" for a sound before LEVELSTART with the SOUND command, like this:

Code: Select all

SOUND soundname

LEVELSTART
Then, after LEVELSTART, in the mission, create the sound doing something like this:

Code: Select all

SOUND soundname

LEVELSTART

soundname = CREATE_SOUND ( X.x , Y.y , Z.z ) SCREAM PLAY_INSTANT END
[the commands to the char go to the destructor and die]
IF (HAS_CHARACTER_DIED (charname))
  DELETE_ITEM (soundname)
ENDIF
I think it works
You just lost the game.

Good! it seems that I haven't seen the SCREAM sound type in the docs before. Now, I get a compile error on this:

Code: Select all

PLAYER_PED player = ( 158.5 , 140.5 , 2.0 ) 2 270 

OBJ_DATA phone_1  =  ( 158.5  , 138.5 , 2.0 )  0  phone

SOUND sound_1

GENERATOR machine_gun_1 = (162.0, 143.0) 0 COLLECT_01 4 40 30
GENERATOR machine_gun_2 = (150.0, 201.0) 0 COLLECT_01 4 40 30
GENERATOR flamer_1 = (239.0, 127.0) 0 COLLECT_08 4 40 30
GENERATOR molotov_cock_1 = (203.5, 166.5) 0 COLLECT_04 4 40 10
GENERATOR armor_1 = (156.5, 142.5, 2.0) 0 COLLECT_29 4 40

PARKED_CAR_DATA tank1 = (226.5, 238.0)  -1 0 TANK


FORWARD answear_phone_1:

THREAD_TRIGGER thread_phone_1 = THREAD_WAIT_FOR_ANSWER_PHONE ( player , phone_1 , answear_phone_1: )

answear_phone_1:

sound_1 = CREATE_SOUND (158.5, 138.5) SCREAM PLAY_INSTANT END

RETURN

LEVELSTART

SWITCH_GENERAtOR (machine_gun_1, ON)
SWITCH_GENERAtOR (machine_gun_2, ON)
SWITCH_GENERAtOR (flamer_1, ON)
SWITCH_GENERAtOR (molotov_cock_1, ON)
SWITCH_GENERAtOR (armor_1, ON)


LEVELEND
it's using wil.gmp and it's not the whole code, in fact I removed my previous script by accident and now I'm going to rewrite it. So, I get a compile error on line 20, which is
"answear_phone_1:" but I can't figure where the errors are coming from.

and, how about playing an external file? Is it possible? the list in the docs about sound types is too short! :)

Thanks for your help!

well, about the error in the line 20 I have no idea bcause Im not good with missions since I never scripted one :P you'd better ask another mapmaker

about playing an external file, i think its not possible, althoug you can edit GTA2 sound files (*.sdt) with GTA Wave 4.0 (can someone pass the link? I lost it D: ), then create your *.wav file you want to play in midgame, find the counterpart sound and import your *.wav file and save the *.sdt.

when doing this youd better copy the *.sty used and use another name to it, the name of your map for example, then save the *.sdt with the same name of the *.sty.

You need a z coordinate for the sound.

sound_1 = CREATE_SOUND (158.5, 138.5, 2.0) SCREAM PLAY_INSTANT END

@Gustavob: this needs to directly modify the GTA files and i hate to do so. Black Phoenix in here http://brain.wireos.com/?tag=opengta2 is working on a new GTA called openGTA2. I hope he will include these sort of abilities to his game.

@Sektor: Thanks! It worked. But, I can only hear the scream when I answer the phone 3 or 4 times... Is it because of the sound of the phone ringing that is already playing? How can I overcome to this problem?
