Hello guys!
I wanted to add a briefing voice at the beginning of my campaign map, a different briefing from outside of the game, I added the sound as .wav format, Mono 22,050 hz PCM by sound forge program, and put it into my expandedXX.mix Also I made the stips of soundmd.ini and I did all the steps in the following tutorial but it doesn't work! ?
https://modenc.renegadeprojects.com/Sounds

I searched for the plug-ins of Winamp but I couldn't find it on the internet.
Maybe I missed something or this is not how it works so please guide me to the correct way.

That Modenc guide is for adding sound effects such as weapons fire or unit voices etc with the sound.ini.

Mission briefings voices are different, they are "EVA" sounds controlled by the evamd.ini file. Unit like sound effects the wav files for EVA announcements are stored in a mix file (audiomd.mix inside of langmd.mix) instead of the sound.bag.

Once you have placed the wav files in a mix file and have added them to evamd.ini you can then use map trigger 21 to play the sound file during a mission.

Thanks but it does not work!
I added my data to evamd.ini then I added it to my expandmd34.mix
I already added the voice briefing file to my expandmd34.mix but it didn't work!

You can test the file by renaming it to xa1ev01.wav putting it lose in the Red Alert 2 folder and then playing the first Allied mission in YR.

If you hear your new voice at the start of the mission then there is a problem with your code in the evamd.ini or the map trigger.

If you dont hear your new voice at the start of the mission then then your wav file is in the wrong format (PCM 22050 hz 16 bit).

I use sound forge also and I found that I some times had problems with sounds processed for the game so I just use it for editing but for proper conversion I use GoldWave

I am back!  Razz
I have one more issue!

I have a copy of Instine shp that I put it in my expandmd34.mix and as you know I make the data for artmd.ini and rulesmd.ini

Code:
[BROWN]
UIName=Name:BROWN
Name=Dr. Emmett Brown
Category=Civilian
Strength=50
Armor=none
TechLevel=-1
CrushSound=InfantrySquish
Insignificant=yes
Sight=2
Speed=4
Owner=British,French,Germans,Americans,Alliance,Russians,Confederation,Africans,Arabs,YuriCountry
AllowedToStartInMultiplayer=no
Cost=10
Soylent=200
Points=1
;Ammo=10
Fraidycat=yes
Civilian=yes
Nominal=yes
Pip=yellow
VoiceSelect=BrownSelect
VoiceMove=BrownMove
VoiceAttack=BrownAttackCommand
VoiceFeedback=BrownFear
VoiceSpecialAttack=BrownMove
DieSound=BrownDie
Locomotor={4A582744-9839-11d1-B709-00A024DDAFD1}
PhysicalSize=1
MovementZone=Infantry
ThreatPosed=0   ; This value MUST be 0 for all building addons
ImmuneToVeins=yes
Size=1
Trainable=no
UseOwnName=true

[BrownSelect]
Sounds=ibrownh ibrowni ibrownj ibrownk
Control=random
Volume=85

[BrownMove]
Sounds=ibrowna ibrownb ibrownc ibrownd
Control=random
Volume=80

[BrownAttackCommand]
Sounds=ibrownl ibrownm ibrownn ibrowno
Control=random
Volume=80

[BrownFear]
Sounds=ibrowne ibrownf ibrowng
Control=random
Volume=85


[BrownMove]
Sounds=ibrowna ibrownb ibrownc ibrownd
Control=random
Volume=80


[BrownDie]
Sounds=ibrownp ibrownq  ibrownr
Control=random
Volume=80


I named the files of the voices as ibrownp.wav as well as you know 22.050 hz 16-bit Mono PCM but they didn't work so I put them all in the game folder also not working, no sound.

how can I make them work?

"Wave" is a misspelling while I was writing the subject and it's not the same in the audio format, now about the repetition of the move, I'm confused about it! There are two moves, one of them with the command attack and move.

VoiceSelect=BrownSelect
VoiceMove=BrownMove_____________- 1
VoiceAttack=BrownAttackCommand
VoiceFeedback=BrownFear
VoiceSpecialAttack=BrownMove______- 2
DieSound=BrownDie

I got it dude, I told you why, I let it as it.
But the issue still!
I asked my friend scipcion about the issue he told me to put all audio files in .bag
I asked him how to do that he told me:
"first you need to extract .bag file from language.mix or langmd.mix"
I tried to figure how to do that as he told me but I didn't get it.
I don't have things with the format .bag in langmd.mix
I don't have the same files as he have.

For this you need the XCC MIXER, open language.mix and extract audio.mix

then open audio.mix and extract audio.bag and audio.idx

then open XCC MIXER, at the top in the "Launch" tab and on XCC Sound Editor, then open the extracted files audio.bag and audio.idx

In the sound editor you can pack and unpack your WAV files.

I think that's what your friend wanted to tell you.

Remember you can use my SOUNDCHECK script in Community Tools to make sure it's all good and proper.
