This is the first extension I’ve tried to use. I’ve installed it as I should on my Windows system. It shows up in my installed extensions but it’s listed as unused.
I can run sounds on the default single channel, but as soon as I try to create channels I run into problems. In fact, I can’t even loop a single sound. The only action that seems to work is “play the sound bg1.”, for example.
I just use the text from the extension’s documentation:
Include Multiple Sounds by Massimo Stella.
Sound of bg1 is the file “scifi.ogg”.
Sound of paper02 is the file “paper02.ogg”.
When play begins:
set the background volume to 2;
play the sound of bg1 in background;
set the foreground volume to 3;
create the midground channel;
set the midground volume to 3.
I’ve also tried to simply create 3 midground channels. No dice.
And I get errors such as:
“You wrote ‘set the background volume to 2’ : but this is a phrase which I don’t recognise, possibly because it is one you meant to define but never got round to, or because the wording is wrong (see the Phrasebook section of the Index to check). Alternatively, it may be that the text immediately previous to this was a definition whose ending, normally a full stop, is missing?”
" In the sentence ‘play the sound of bg1 in background’ , I was expecting to read a sound name, but instead found some text that I couldn’t understand - ‘sound of bg1 in background’.
I was trying to match this phrase:
play (sound of bg1 in background - sound name)
But I didn’t recognise ‘sound of bg1 in background’."
“You wrote ‘set the foreground volume to 3’ : again, this is a phrase which I don’t recognise.”
Anyway, it’s probably something stupid but any help is appreciated.
