Hear custom soundbanks and fanfares
Is it possible to have other wormnet users to hear custom soundbanks and fanfares without downloading them?
This is a complicated question. We intend to add this for 4.0, however this is complicated by that it’d be too easy to annoy people with custom soundbanks -therefore they must be easily mute-able.
Then make it optional maybe? Turned off by default.
Sure it's definately worth trying.
it's definitely a long awaited addition and it'll add more interest for people to make custom soundbanks.
and if they make annoying ones just have an easy way of changing this person's soundbank to sound like the default soundbank on ur computer instead of muting it completely
and yeah franpa if they're planning to have the maps graphics load while game has already started on a simpler outlined non textured map they can have the soundbanks loaded in same manner
If you don't add a way to avoid downloading them, you'll probably lose a fair chunk of players. I am talking about going one step further then just muting them.
Not possible, data MUST be sent otherwise wtf does the other clients know what to play? maybe have dynamic transfer of the soundbanks DURING GAMES and have them take effect during a game? better then waiting for it to send in the game lobby...
