Generating file packages

After the package(s) in your project are created and populated, and the file ordering is set, you can generate one or all packages. File packages are saved as PCK files in the platform folder of the Generated SoundBanks. You can, however, specify a different location, if required.

If any errors occur during generation, they are displayed in the generation log. If no errors occur, you can go ahead and add these package files to the game disk.

To generate file packages:

  1. To specify a new location where the file packages will be saved, click the Browse button beside the Output directory field.

    The Browse for Folder dialog opens.

  2. Navigate to the location where you want the file packages to be saved, select the folder, and click OK.

    The full path is added to the Output directory field.

  3. From the menu bar, click Generate > All packages.

    The Generating Packages dialog opens and displays the progress of the generation process. If errors are encountered, they will be highlighted in the log by a yellow circle.


    If you don't want to generate all packages each time, you can select one or more packages in the Packages view and then click Generate > Selected Packages.
