9 Audio Tutorial

Introduction

This week you'll spend your time adding audio to your game. This can be in the form of sound effects, voice recording and music. Audio is often left to the end (and we're making no exception) but don't underestimate the value that it adds.

Sound and Unreal

This tutorial explains all the steps in getting your own sound and music and adding it to your game.

Impersonator

If you want to give you game a very professional touch then you'll want to look at using Impersonator in your game. This allows you to have characters lip-synced with their speach.

The bad news is that the use of Impersonator was withdrawn some time ago and there is no support for UT2K4 (it was originally a fairly expensive middleware). This means you'll either need to use the default characters that have Impersonator support built-in or you'll have to find a very old version of Maya which works with the old plugins.

You can still add your own sound and trigger it off though in conjunction with the standard animation.

This tutorial explains how.
