Title: TFTD DeathScream
Post by: Avon on January 09, 2019, 12:20:26 am
Greetings to all.

I'm not sure if this is a bug or something I've done on my end, but when my soldiers (male or female) die they don't emit the death-scream. On terror sites, the civilians have the death-scream. All aliens have theirs also, just my guys have a silent death.

I have deleted my options.cfg. My log looks normal from what I can gather:

Using the latest nightly Version: 1.0 git 2018-12-31

However...While looking at the code on git hub and then the .rul files, namely Soldiers.rul in xcom1 i found this:

Code: [Select]
armor: STR_NONE_UC
    standHeight: 22
    kneelHeight: 14
    femaleFrequency: 25
      - SoldierName/
deathMale: [41, 42, 43] << ahoy thar screamers
    deathFemale: [44, 45, 46]

Obviously my problem is with TFTD/Xcom2, but when I look at the xcom2 ver, it ends after 'KneelHeight 14' I looked at the code again for deathscreams for Xcom2 and noticed the number 48. I've added that to the bottom of the Soldiers.rul in xcom2:
Code: [Select]
armor: STR_NONE_UC
    standHeight: 22
    kneelHeight: 14
    deathMale: [48, 48, 48]
    deathFemale: [48, 48, 48]

Now It works for both m/f (tested with dropping nades at my feet and teamkilling) It hasn't crashed either. I'm not sure if I did something wrong, the installation went belly up or it is a bug?

I can hear the screams.

They are also defined in the ruleset, in Soldiers.rul, on the bottom:

I found the culprit: OXCRulesetEditorV0.5.

I never looked at the .rul files (in notepad++) until after I installed that program, thinking those files weren't for notepad. Now I realise it cut some of the info out, thank you for your help, I had to ask though, it was driving me nuts not hearing screams -sounds weird
