Hello, so I’m not really sure what category this belongs in, I’d assume Scripting because it’s regarding the Sound class, if this belongs somewhere else let me know.
But basically, I noticed Roblox released a change to the Sound object, getting rid of the EmitterSize property. Go figure, this change completely screwed up my audio system I had in place for my game, and when I played it recently about half the sounds couldn’t be heard at all.
I’ve been trying to figure out how to use the properties that took EmitterSize’s place to achieve a similar effect as before, but it’s been horrible so far. Any help appreciated, thanks.
So I’m reviving this post. The new RollOff properties seem really hard to figure out. I’m trying to properly configure the sound’s range for different sounds on different models, and it’s either way too quiet when I get close to it or way too loud when I’m very far away from it or up close as well…it’s really stupid.
I’m bumping this again. I’m having serious issues getting this to work right, for whatever reason the sound playing from a part gets louder when I walk away from it, and when I get up close to it, it actually gets a bit quieter.
So either Roblox screwed up sounds, or I’m doing something wrong.
Not gonna lie, I find it insanely frustrating how they decide it’s okay to deprecate a property that works fine with some new untested property that’s just a giant mess right now.
This is the graph I made a couple of years back in Desmos for my own reference. It shows what the rolloff curves look like between the Min and Max distances. One thing particular to note is that the Inverse rolloff does not go to zero, so when you go outside of the max distance, sound can abruptly cut off. It’s for this reason that I use Inverse Tapered almost exclusively.
