How to fix Cube footsteps being too fast?

+3 votes
Hi, I've been going through the Wwise 101 certification lessons. Upon implementing footsteps and playing the game, I realize that the footsteps are waayy too fast. Kind of sounds like a toddler trying to fake-walk around a pool and not get in trouble. Is there some way in the Cube code that I can change how fast the footsteps trigger? I looked all over and can't seem to find an answer. I also tried doing it in Wwise using silence, but that doesn't work either.

Are you sure your footsteps are not looping ?

Hey just thought I would add that I have the same issue, footsteps are not set to loop however they are doubling up when I check out whats going on in the Profiler. The footstep audio clip does not have time to finish playing through before the next step event is triggered. I generated the soundbank from lesson 3 to see if that would help and given it did not I think that it may be an issue with Cube and not my settings in Wwise. Any thoughts?

In the Foot_Player event, not only do you put a play for the footstep, but you also have to put a stop for the same footstep with a delay according to the realism you want in it. I found that the most realistic footstep was the stop at like 0.325 delay.

You're welcome!

I had the same issue, to fix it I put the footstep switch container into a sequence container along with a blank track (I took one of my dialogue tracks and muted it), I then made sure that the sequence container play mode was on "Step" so that the footstep was only triggered every other step, then I was able to adjust the duration of the muted audio clip to either speed up or slow down the footsteps. Hope this helped anyone with the same problem!
