Problems with hmg-1.wav
I don't know if this is the right forum to post to - if not please move the thread!
I replaced the wav of the LMG with one I liked better. No errors occured (e.g. like looping sound). As I replaced the hmg-1.wav the sound starts looping when I shoot the HMG and won't stop to do so till I use another weapon. I can't seem to find out whats wrong. I made the sound exactly the same length, compression and so on like the original hmg-1.wav. A longer sound doesn't work, a shorter doesn't work. Someone got an idea?

    Yeah, this is in the .wav file itself.
    Open the wave file in your sound editor, SoundForge, etc and delete the markers.
    The glass is half full when filled, and have empty when spilled.

    Half-life sound files should have a marker at the beginning, but not at the end. If there are no markers it won't play, if there are markers at both ends I think it loops.

    I don't have access to my computer right now, but you guys could be right. I think the hmg-1.wav has a recording take marker at the end. Thanks for the hint, I'll let you know if thats the solution. smile.gif
