Before a particular patch by either Garry or on the Source engine, all sounds worked without issue. It’s been some time since then, possibly little under a year, but I’ve been having problems with certain .wav soundfiles ever since then.
So I must ask, what are the limits to what Garry’s Mod is capable of playing? Here are to .wav files if anyone wants to see what I speak of. One works in Gmod, and the other does not.
LR300.wav works fine in Gmod, and is currently used for a SWEP.
servicerifle.wav does NOT work in Gmod, and is silent when played.
I’ve ensured a broken file path is not the culprit, and sound files that have worked before no longer function. So how do I correct this? I can only conclude it is the codec or bitrate or something in the .wav its self. Given knowledge of what is wrong, I can probably fix it with a sound editing program.
