custom sounds
« on: October 16, 2017, 10:45:28 pm »
post custom sounds to use for [the new format version] NeoLemmix!

My first batch here is a mix of some Mario sounds and Sonic sounds. I made this mainly to get rid of the annoying old Amiga sounds that I didn't like. But I figured we could have a place for future people to post other sounds you could use.

warning: always back up your existing files before you do things like these: or you will lose them forever!

A good idea. Something I've noticed very little of is custom win/lose music for level packs. I'll post mine here.
Remember to name them "success.ogg" and "failure.ogg" and to insert them into your pack as custom files if you want to use them.

Quick question: How do I use them in New Formats for specific packs only, rather than as general replacements by throwing them into the "sounds" folder?

I put mine into the main folder of a pack of mine (in both MP3 and .ogg format), but NeoLemmix doesn't seem to recognise them and plays the standard jingles instead.

As befitting my "Punch-Out!!" mindset when it comes to Lemmings, I have two I could share. All are from the NES version.

Heck, have the "Gillette Be Sharp March" intro even.

Would still be great if one could use these on a pack-by-pack basis, rather than changing them for the entire game... :D

Since we're already considering providing custom sounds together with the download of the pack they belong to, why not make custom success- and failure-jingles specific to their respective packs again?

One of the few remaining things that Old Formats could do that haven't yet been transferred to New Formats... :P

These features have never been very popular. I'm actually kind of surprised they survived the culls at all.

Honestly, This, I don't want to replace the sounds for the entire game just to match the theming, I want have pack specific sounds, sounds in the pack's files that play over the original sounds. And they just rest within the Level Pack itself

From a quick look at the source code (I very likely wrote this part, but it was also a very long time ago so I don't recall it too well), it appears that unlike graphics - which NeoLemmix is written to account for frequent changing of - sounds are very much treated on a basis of "load once, assume it won't change". For the same reason, if you were to replace a sound file while NeoLemmix is running, it would continue to use the old sound until restarted, provided that either the sound is one of the default sounds, or it's already been used at least once during the custom session. (On the other hand, if you replaced a graphic file, while it might not change immediately as NeoLemmix does cache graphics, it would eventually if the corresponding image isn't used by NL for a while.)

If a need ever arises to change the way the sound system works to be more like that of graphics, then at that point reimplementing per-pack success / failure jingles can definitely be considered, but doing that just to reimplement this feature would be a lot of work for a feature very few people use. The only reason I can think of why we might need to do that is to avoid excessive memory usage, but so far sounds have not really been a huge problem in that regard, graphics are (which is why graphics are discarded from memory when not used for a while).
