Hey, still pretty new to FMOD, and having a problem with sharing a FMOD sound library. When building the project, it gathers data from the sound files using their absolute paths ( c:\mysound\subdir\aaa.wav ). Obsiously, when moving the library to another computer, the paths aren’t found.
To fix this, I want to use local paths. So:
– Libraries are placed in the root folder where all the sound files are. Example:
c:\mysound\ <– libraries are here
c:\mysound\subdir\aaa.wav local path = "subdir\aaa.wav"
– In Events, "Audio Source Directory" is set to "", empty
– When adding a soundfile, I can see it removed the root part
When I move the entire folder & libraries to another disk location, I can still play the sounds in Designer. But when building the project, it still refers to the old absolute locations. I get the "couldn’t read from file" error.
Any way to solve this? I’d like to let multiple people work or at least review the libraries, and I can’t expect all of them having the exact same rootfolder or disk drive letters.
