Jump to: navigation, search

This function plays a sound in the GTA world from GTA's big sound containers.


[[{{{image}}}|link=]] Note: There is a tool available which allows you to find bank and sound IDs easily: [sfxBrowser:Download].
Dialog-warning.png Warning: Many players use versions of GTA:SA (especially pirated versions) that have audio files full of zeros so that they can compresses better in their AUDIO\SFX\ folder. (They lack any data)

In case of these invalid audio files, this function returns false.

It also returns false when trying to play a track deleted in the recent GTA: SA Steam patches (and if the client is using a Steam GTA: SA copy).
