Audio and Music
Sound and Sound Effects[edit | edit source]
Game Sounds Stored as standard WAV PCM files.
Format: 22050 Hz, 16 bit, 1 or 2 channel (mono or stereo, depending on sound)
Unit Sound effects (Shots, Death) are stored in \Sounds\Military
User Interface Sounds are stored in \Sounds\UI
Note on Sound Design: Important that sounds don't 'clip' the max volume (ie, the amplitude of the sinewaves in editor will 'hit the ceiling' and get clipped off), otherwise crackling may occur. Also, sounds should begin and end with a small amount of complete silence - ie, even 1/20th of a second, or less, will do.
Music[edit | edit source]
Game Regional Music is stored in \Sounds\Music
Game Music (SRU, SRGW) is now in xwma format (Microsoft XAudio compressed). Older game versions use MP3 formats.
