I don't know how much you know so I'll start with the real basics.

Opening Pk3 files

Pk3 files are just renamed zip files so you can open with your fav program that can open zip files, if you don't have a good program use pakscape (google it) as that is for opening pk3 files.

File Structure

In order to get your server to use you files you must use the same file structure as in the pak0.pk3 file (word of warning do not edit your pak0.pk3 file). If you open the file "ETc|***Jay*** " uploaded you can see a cut down version of this file structure.

The actual sound files

The files you use must be the exact name of the files you want to change.
The only file type that ET allows is Wav (mp3's etc will not work)
Sound files (wav's) in ET must be 16bit mono with a max sample rate of 22050, I don't know what others use but I have used "Wavepad Sound Editor" & "Audacity" in the past.

What files you can/can't add/change

You can change any sound that is in the game its self.
You can't add another sound like a last minute song/sound as ET or the Map does not know to play that so it will not work.
There are sounds you can replace for 5mins, 2mins & as you know 30secs.

Running custom sounds on your server

you run you new sounds on your server you need to make a new pk3 file.
Add your new sounds into the new pk3 making sure that they are in the correct folder within the structure of the new files.
i.e.

Code: Select all

sound\vo\general\allies\hq_30seconds_a.wav
Save the new file with a prefix of zz_ (this just makes ET read your sounds over the default ones)
i.e

Code: Select all

zz_endsound.pk3
Put the new file in both your servers & redirect "jaymod" folder

Ok, so i can open the hq_30seconds_a.wav thats in the pk3 file jay posted?
im using pakscape for it

if i open it in wavepad and put in a new song and save it as the same name .wav
and replace it in axis and allies in the pk3
i put it on the redirect and server, restarted the server, but i hear nothing.
so i must do something wrong right?
thx

The most likely reason is the file has not been encoded to mono 22,050, Basicly a problem with the new sound.

I would need to see what you have done so I can check it
