void PlayActorSound (int tid, int sound, int channel, fixed volume, bool looping, fixed attenuation);


Plays a sound at a thing. This is similar to PlaySound except it takes a sound identifier as the sound parameter instead of an explicit sound, and thus the sound that is eventually played depends on the actor's defined sounds. If tid is 0, the sound will be played by the activator of the script.


  • tid: The tid of the actor to play the sound from.
  • sound: The sound identifiers to play the sound they reference:
  • channel: The channel to play the sound on. Default is CHAN_BODY.
  • volume: The volume of the sound. This ranges from 0.0 (mute) to 1.0 (full volume). Default is 1.0.
  • looping: Whether the sound is to be looped or not. If TRUE, the sound loops, otherwise it does not. Default is FALSE.
  • attenuation: This is how quickly the sound fades with distance from its source. The higher the value the quicker the sound fades out. The following are the standard attenuation values:
    • ATTN_NONE — 0 (no attenuation; the sound can be heard regardless of the distance).
    • ATTN_NORM — 1.0 (normal attenuation; this is the default value).
    • ATTN_IDLE — 1.001
    • ATTN_STATIC — 3.0 (the sound diminish very rapidly with distance).
