Summary0003395: Create/re-enable voice volume slider in main menu
DescriptionTDM has an entity "atdm:voice", which in conjunction with "atdm:trigger_voice" is incredibly handy for making player character voice-overs in missions.

I noticed that the player voice that plays is not controlled by ambient and SFX volume sliders in the main menu/audio setup.

According to Tels, there should be code for a voice volume slider, it is just disabled.
Steps To ReproduceIf I put ambient and SFX volume sliders to 0%, no sounds are played in TDM. Only the player voice lines from "atdm:voice" entities are heard with 100% volume.
TagsNo tags attached.

What's the difference between "player voice" and "voiceover"?

They each get a slider on the audio page, but the effect for the player is the same: it's just a voiceover.

I don't know if this is an issue or not.

The sliders have a low setting of -60dB and a high setting of 0dB.

This causes the voice to be silent at about the 75% setting. I was expecting the volume to be cut in half if I set the slider at the mid-point (50%), but there's no sound at all at that point.

The music and sfx sliders go from -40dB to 0dB, so the point where their sounds disappear is lower than 75%.

Ah, the difference between the music slider and the voice sliders is that the music slider scales the slider position from 0.0->1.0, and the volume of the music is multiplied by that.

The voice sliders, on the other hand, aren't scaled, which is why they fall off so quickly.

Unhid the text and sliders for player and narrator voices on the audio menu page. Adjusted the other menu lines to make room.

Completed the scriptobject code to support the sliders.

There have been two reports of errors after a recent update:

ERROR:Error: file script\tdm_voices.script, line 89: Unknown value "getSoundVolume"

Could this be related?

Are the testers running on linux?

I checked in a new tdm_game01.pk4--that handles line 89--in rev 13457, so Windows users shouldn't have a problem.

Tels checked in a new linux build in rev 13460, so linux users should be using at least that rev.
