BHD and later DF games play .wav's as their standard sound.

For sounds, you need the .wav, and the .lwf in order for them to work.

If you want to make an environmental sound marker, you will have to make an entry in the items.def to make the marker (used by the map editors).

.lwf stands for Loose Wave Files... (doesnt really have any meaning to it).

the Lwf defines handles or call-names to each individual waves, allows them to be put into a sequence, and then allows them to be added together.

I might've already uploaded my LWFHelp.txt to one of the forums around here, but if you can't find it let me know and I'll give it to you.

One Very Important Note! All of the wav's MUST be Mono-channel sounds! any Stereo-channel sounds in your .wav will seriously F up your .pff down the road!

thanks for all your help.


unfortunately i have to restart in a few months(around november/december) i'm getting a new computer and i don't have time before school starts. a few of us got together and started our own squad. so all of my game time has been poured into getting it off the ground before school starts.

Look into acquiring an online storage drive that you can upload your stuff and be able to access it anywhere that has an internet connection.

Also known as an FTP, most server hosts will not let you get one for free.

However, MSN has a new thing called a SkyDrive that will allow you to upload any file up to 50MB each, and up to like 200GB total.

The skydrive will not allow you to upload your .pff if it get's over 50MB, but you can upload the individual sub-files (like your .tga's, .dds's, .wav's, etc) as a backup.

There is probably a couple other free storage sites out there, but you'll have to look for them.
