Outgun sound themes

If you want sounds in the game, you must provide sound files with the following names for the respective game events.

wabounce.wavplayer bounces out of wall
wallhit.wava player shot hits a wall
weaponup.wavplayer picks up a weapon upgrade

After that, you must create a directory under the sound directory, e.g. C:\outgun\sound\mysounds.

Then place your sounds there. You can add a theme.txt text file to this directory. The first line of the file will contain the description of your sound theme.

If you want to have the same sound in two events, you don’t have to copy the sound file. Instead, you can make a redirection. To make player bounce sound same as wall bounce sound, make plbounce.txt file. Write on the first line of that file wabounce. That way Outgun uses wabounce.wav instead of plbounce.wav.
