Hello, once again!
I put a quick video together so you all can hear me babble about first person vs third person audio, and why I am so excited by that.
I had a plan to actually give you guys a quick audio demo using real guns, but the meadow was covered in a herd of at least 100 elk, so I couldn't do any shooting. No, seriously. If anyone is curious as to how the herd sounds, I captured some audio. Maybe I can find a use for some of their bugling if I mess with it a bit ...
Regardless, I'll have an in-game demo for you all next week using some placeholder audio.
- The game can now differentiate between guns being fired by the actor vs NPCs
- The actor (the player) is always in first person perspective
- The NPCs are always in third person perspective (relative to the actor)
- The actor's guns will now have appropriate and 1st-person-specific weapon report audio
- NPCs will now have appropriate and 3rd-person-specific weapon report audio
- Stereo doesn't yet work for 1st person weapon audio, but I am working on it
For anyone who wants to replicate this, know that there are still a few tweaks I am working on. I also am still looking for someone who can help code a fade in/out crossfade function in Lua to use in LURK 1.2.
