I get the Bird Foot Steps sound but not the Player Movement Sounds.

Hi,

I can get the bird steps sound but not the player. I noticed when I hit play button and start playing, the "Random Sound Player (Script) component's checkbox doesn't get checked as the Bird's one does. Any ideas?

Hi J R,

Could you please post your Random Sound Player script for me to have a look please?

public class RandomSoundPlayer : MonoBehaviour {

    private AudioSource audioSource;

    [SerializeField]
    private List<AudioClip> soundClips = new List<AudioClip> () ;

    [SerializeField]
    private float soundTimerDelay =3f;
    private float soundTimer;

    // Use this for initialization
    void Start () {
        audioSource = GetComponent<AudioSource> ();

    }

    // Update is called once per frame
    void FixedUpdate () {
        //Increment a timer to count up to restarting
        soundTimer = soundTimer + Time.deltaTime;
        if (soundTimer >= soundTimerDelay) {

        // ... reset the timer ...
            soundTimer = 0f;

        //... choose a random sound...
            AudioClip randomSound = soundClips[Random.Range (0,soundClips.Count-1)];

        //... and play the sound.
            audioSource.PlayOneShot (randomSound);


        }

    }
}

Hi J R,

Have you correctly linked the RandomSoundPlayer script with the Player GameObject in the inspector?

There should be a Field in the Inspector for the Player GameObject called "Player Footsteps", does this field have the script "Player Footsteps (RandomSoundPlayer)" in it?

Yes, I have a "Player Footsteps" field in the "Player" GameObject's inspector and this field is linked with the "Player FootSteps (RandomSoundlayer)". Still no sounds are coming when I play the game.

What about the PlayerMovement.cs script? Can you post that to see if the sound script if being enabled and disabled right?

How strange, I didn't seem to see anything obviously wrong with your code.

Have you tried going back over the video and seeing if you went wrong somewhere or missed something?
