Two sounds in one attack

Post by Seylamander » September 8th, 2011, 1:45 am

Hey! I'm back again, and I have yet another animation question.

Is it possible to have more than one sound in one attack hit/miss? I'm trying to create "holy lightning" which plays the "Holy" sound list at the same time as the lightning ones. Here is the code I have so far (mostly taken from the "LIGHTNING_ANIMATION NAME_STRING DIRECTION_NUMBER" macro).

Code: Select all

#define HOLY_LIGHTNING_ANIMATION NAME_STRING DIRECTION_NUMBER
    [effect]
        apply_to=new_animation
        name={NAME_STRING}
        [attack_anim]
            [filter_attack]
                name={NAME_STRING}
            [/filter_attack]
            {LIGHTNING_BOLT {DIRECTION_NUMBER}}
            [if]
                hits=no
                [frame]
                    begin=-200
                    end=0
                    sound=lightning-miss.ogg,{SOUND_LIST:HOLY_MISS}
                [/frame]
            [/if]
            [else]
                hits=yes
                [frame]
                    begin=-200
                    end=0
                    sound=lightning.ogg,{SOUND_LIST:HOLY}
                [/frame]
            [/else]
        [/attack_anim]
    [/effect]
#enddef
Thanks!

I don't know how to do that with WML but you could download an install Audacity (free software) and open both files and save them as one, then use that sound file as both.

Problem with that is that users would have to have the map/era to play Multiplayer.

If it is possible to play more then one sound track, I believe it would be a better alternative if it is a Multiplayer addon. If not, go ahead with the Audacity idea.

Yes, it's possible. Examples: wolves, cavalry units, thrown spears. Look and learn.

Got it. Thanks!

For future reference, I just looked at
