Customcraft: Music and Sound Effects
Welcome to Customcraft! For you newcomers, this is a column dedicated to item creation tips with the WoW RP add-on, Gryphonheart Items—or GHI for short. I’ve been noticing a couple search terms have been hitting the blog as of late, so… no better time than the present to illustrate on how to add sounds effects and/or music to your items.
Basically, there are two ways to achieve this.
A: We use the ‘Sound’ right-click effect when creating an item.
B: We add it into a script.
Both methods are incredibly easy to do, so the choice is yours on what route you want to take. Unless you’re working hardcore with LUA coding, then the Sound right-click function will get you through with what you want it to do.
Adding Sound via Right-Click Actions
The interface is pretty self-explanatory. Just add in the sound filepath, and a delay—which is actually optional if you don’t want to. (Delays are useful if you don’t want the sound to go off right away.) The hardest part is actually tracking down the sound file that you want! There are a few compilations out there that have a listing of -all- the sound files in the game thus far.
Just find what you need, and then just copy and paste into the box. Voila!
Adding Sound Effects via Scripts
The script for this is pretty simple.
That’s it! I’m not pulling your leg here. It just goes to show that some of the most simplest of things can make a huge difference, doesn’t it?
That’s all for this edition of Customcraft! Now get out there and create!
