The following sections list and describe the changes to Wwise between version 2023.1.2 and version 2023.1.3.
Platform-specific information can be found here:

For earlier versions, please refer to Previous Release Notes.

New Features

  • WG-70303 Added option use-user-overrides to the generate-soundbank action of Wwise Console. This option allows SoundBank generation through Wwise Console to use per-user override settings, such as custom SoundBank paths. As before, SoundBank generation through Wwise Console only uses the common Project Settings by default.
  • WG-70475 Added support for the inclusion of environment variables, similar to the the Soundbank Generation Step Commands to the project settings defining the folder paths of Original Audio Files, Cached Audio Files, and External Sources Output Paths. Added a new dialog to assist with defining these paths.

Miscellaneous Changes

  • WG-70494 Enabled Visual Studio 2022 build of Level 3 source code.
