Summary0004688: EAX affect on atdm:voice
DescriptionEAX affects the player / narrator voice in game which sounds strange in the case where they are giving an internal monologue.

Would be nice to toggle EAX, since in some cases the player is speaking out loud (in a dialogue or pain sounds for instance).
TagsNo tags attached.

I suggest that the Narrator voice channel is excluded from the EFX pass, but not the Player Voice one. This way a map author can have their player character speak out loud and have that be affected by the environmental audio modeling, but also have the option for reverb-free internal monologue.

In addition I'd like to note that several UI sounds like pickup and loot sounds are affected by EFX, which shouldn't happen.

EFX settings also affect ambient_zoned sounds played via atdm:location_settings.

IMO it would be a good idea to have any sounds played via atdm:location_settings excluded from EFX, as most of them have their own reverb.

At the very least, we need some kind of spawnarg to keep individual sounds from being affected by EFX so mappers have some control over this.

I have added support for "no_efx" flag in sound shaders (in rev 7337).
Forum post:
It is in trunk, but not included in 2.06 branch yet.

The "no_efx" keyword is already in 2.06 beta.

Is this issue technically done with no_efx keyword in sound shaders?

We still have a big TODO about revising all the stock sound shaders and putting no_efx where appropriate.
I think I should create another issue for this revision and mark this issue as resolved. Any objections?
