Intermediate Tutorial -- Step 1: Add sounds

|------ Back | Next | Index

Add a sound

Let's try out adding a
sound whenever you slide down a tree. Click the Table tab to select the table. Then select the fourth rule (the one that has the command "slide down the tree"). Place the editing cursor at the end of the text in the reply field by clicking there with the mouse. Then press the Sound button on the button bar, or choose Edit | Insert Sound. In the resulting file dialog, go to your windows directory, and then to the media directory inside it, and then pick a sound WAV file (such as tada.wav).

The reply field will now read like this:

You slide back to the ground. {sound tada}

Test the reply

s see what the reply sounds like with its new sound. Choose Rule | Test Reply. You should hear the reply spoken with the sound in it.
