    Stop sound option after two jumps

    I have a double jump in place and currently, when you press the gamepad button, the jump sound plays along with the action. However, if you're still in the air and continue to press "jump", it keeps triggering the jump sound. I'm still a beginner, and I don't always understand how to write out...

    GMS 2.3+ Output Window Error when using sound in a sequence

    Hi. I'm building a sequence that includes audio cues. If I run my game without audio in the Sequence, it plays fine. If I add a sound asset to the sequence it will play, but in the output window I get the following message as it compiles: Cannot find metadata for object of type...

    Android MODIFY_AUDIO_SETTINGS Android Permissions

    Hi, I've added the permission MODIFY_AUDIO_SETTINGS so I can control the devices global audio settings - it's just for a local game that I don't plan to distribute. Now that's added, how can I code to say that I want to adjust volume to max settings on the device? Thanks!

    SOLVED Is it possible to disable notifications about the sound being played in the browser?

    Hi, everybody. Is it possible to disable this notification on mobile devices using GMS 2 or JavaScript? My game was rejected during moderation on a special resource. There should be no notifications during the game. P. S. I use a translator to communicate, sorry for the mistakes.

    GMS 2 Exporting an Audio file

    I am trying to make a music program based on beepbox. Two Questions: 1. How can I merge all the separate sounds arranged in the editor into a single sound? (Is there a way that I need to handle my audio to allow this?) 2. How do I export that sound into a file? (I don't mind if the file is in...

    GML [Audio] Live volume of a sound that is playing?

    Hi, I'm curious if it is possible to create a live/dynamic volume meter of sorts in Game Maker Studio 1 and/or 2? As in, is it possible to get some sort of value (adjusts itself each step; would probably be a float, ie a percentage) which represents the current "loudness" of the specified sound...

    Allowing users to load audio files into the game?

    Heya. I'd like the user to be able to load sprites and audio files into the game. The sprite part is easily handled by sprite_add(), however loading audio into the game seems vastly more complex, and from what I have seen, only possible in a very limited fashion. It appears that the only way...

    GMS 2 Issues with Sound Gain not Displaying in GUI

    I've added a volume adjustment to a game, and all is working. The BGM and SFX gain is lowered. But, with the BGM sounds I have in the default group "audiogroup_default" and I set the gain by choosing a percent using "audio_group_set_gain(audiogroup_default, 0.50, 0);" and so on. and I get the...

    GMS 2 Audio Panning (bug?) Issue?

    So I'm sure this probably isn't a GMS bug or anything, likely something I am doing. My music is starting in the center when I drop my character into the room but then as I progress the music is slowly panning to the left ear only. Now I recently did a proximity sound object that detects where...

    GMS 2 is it possible to add Audio effects?

    In Game maker studio 2. I've been thinking of making a level featuring space, and of course I want the classic Fadey audio effect for the background music, footsteps, etc so I tried to add a high pass filter and either I can't seem to find it or i'm just being stupid and there is no way to add...

    GMS 2 Sound playing every step. (need to stop that)

    Okay so simple enough I want a hover sound to play when the characters HSP (horizontal speed) is > 0. So if this is the case and its HSP > 0 then I set the hovering var to be true. Otherwise its false. Once hovering is true I do the following (hovering code included). PLAYER - CREATE hovering...

    GMS 2 audio_group_set_gain VS volume in sound editor[SOLVED]

    Hello, I have a question on how the volume in the sound editor work and how to adjust sounds from one another : Is there a way to combine the audio_group_set_gain function with the volume settings from the audio editor ? So that I can have one audio group with multiple sounds in it. Fine tune...

    Good volume level?

    Hihi, So in the few years I've been using Gamemaker, I've only really made a bunch of prototype games. They all were usually just limited to one playtest room before I moved on to something else, so I never bothered to adding sound effects and music. I've decided to trying adding some sounds...

    Why is the audio functionality so jumbly?

    We have audio_sound_set_track_position. But then half the other set functions don't contain 'set' like audio_sound_gain. Unless it's a getter in which case it's audio_sound_get_gain. audio_sound_play? Nope, it's audio_play_sound. audio_is_playing returns true even if a sound is paused...

    3d sound sometimes does not play / stops playing inexplicably

    so I have a snowstorm-object emitting 3d sound of a heavy wind, as follows: Create: emitter_id = audio_emitter_create() audio_falloff_set_model(audio_falloff_linear_distance); audio_emitter_position(emitter_id,x,y,0) audio_emitter_falloff(emitter_id,400,1300,1)...

    3D sound randomly just doesn't play

    So in my game (top-down 2D strategy game) I've implemented 3d sounds via emitters. For example, there's snowstorms, that emit a wind sound. When such an object (obj_snowstorm) passes by or onscreen, players hear the sound in 3d. However, sometimes it just doesn't play even if the object passes...

    Android Play audio with screen locked

    Hey, forum. I'm pretty new to mobile development via GML and I was wondering if it's possible to have audio continue to play when the user locks the screen. I know this isn't a typical function for a game, but it's a desired feature for what I'm currently working on. Thanks!

    GMS 2 Question about audio_play_sound volume stacking

    Hello! My question is in regard of high volume when you play an audio repeatedly... In my game you can kill lots of monsters, and the cut sound effect, hit sound effect and dying sound effect all get on eachother making a really big mess with the volume... My solution was to make global...
