Thread: How does one find/browse all of the sounds in ARMA?

  1. #1

    How does one find/browse all of the sounds in ARMA?

    Sorry. I know this must have has been answered but I am having trouble finding it. I am NOT interested in adding custom sounds to my missions. I just was to play the stock sounds with "say" or "playsound". However I'm not sure how to find the sound or reference them in the command. Must you declare stock sounds in CfgSound? Thanks again.

    Unpbo the addons.
    For example in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3\Addons
    Look for the pbo called sounds_f.pbo and un-pbo it.

    I did that and placed the unpbo folder in D:\ so my link to a medic shout is :- D:\sounds_f\a3\sounds_f\characters\human-sfx\Person0\P0_moan_19_words.wss

    all playsound3d needs is the "a3\sounds_f\characters\human-sfx\Person0\P0_moan_19_words.wss"


    Hope that helps

    can you listen to them from the config viewer ?

    No. It was only a suggestion.

    you can script it, but like iceman said, no from the config itself (although that would be a nice improvement)

    personally i used this when wanted to hear the spoken words and phrases (although some are dependent on variables and don't play, or last i ran it...look up BIKB & kbTell in the A3 Wiki for more about the conversation system). can't find my working code for playback (again, BIKB, and im not about to post any of that!) so theres roughly this:

    Code:
    _cfg = configfile >> "RadioProtocolENG" >> "Words" >> "Normal";
    for "_i" from 0 to (count _cfg)-1 do
    {
    _word = configName(_cfg select _i);
    player say _word;
    hintSilent _word;
    sleep 3;
    };
    ...and patience : )

    I totally just stole this snippet . Thanks for sharing, this could be very useful.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I understand that i need to unpack the .pbo(s) to listen to the files outside of ARMA (though I have no idea what format they are in but I'll figure that out later). However, if I'm reading this correctly, to use a stock sounds in a my mission I must extract the sound from the pbo, put the sound file in my mission folder and declare it in the description??? Or can any of these steps be omitted?? Thanks again!

    I'm surprised at how little SFXs are available in A3 compared to previous games.
