Summary0002702: Mainhall sounds not panning correctly
DescriptionMainhalls sounds used to have variable panning ability where -1.0 = left, 0.0 = center, and 1.0 = right. You could fade your sounds across as you might expect.

However, it was recently brought to my attention that this is no longer the case. Now anything < 0 will be fully Left and anything > 0 will be fully Right. 0.0 is the only way to get the sound from both channels.
Steps To ReproduceRun nomods. Mouseover the Ready Room door. The sound in the retail table is set to 0.07 and should basically be center so you should hear it from both speakers. However it only comes out the Right channel.
TagsNo tags attached.

I encountered the same problem with beam weapons in RC6 and RC7.

Assigning to Zacam for advice. Not sure who's best qualified to look at this... maybe you could delegate it to someone who worked on the new sound code.

I am unable to reproduce this issue with current trunk (revision 9357), retail assets, and stereo headphones. Please confirm that this issue still exists.

Issue still exists (revision 9357).


iss_mneur (developer)

After working with MjnMixael on #SCP, it appears that this issue is an environmental issue and/or hardware issue, related to the use of OpenALSoft, wxLauncher, and sound card drivers.

Specifically the fact that if OpenALSoft is installed in the Freespace2 directory (the recommended location) then wxLauncher doesn't load it, resulting in wxLauncher being unable to "see" the same sound cards as the 5.5g launcher or FSO. This meant that MjnMixael was unable to select a sound card driver that doesn't cause issues.
