With SoundBank metadata, SoundBanksRoot + Path does not lead to the correct full path to a localized SoundBank file

0 votes

Hello Wwise,

The metadata in bank.json/.xml are super useful. I expect to be able to easily construct the path to a SoundBank file using just the fields in it, e.g.,

using SoundBanksInfo/RootPaths/SoundBanksRoot plus SoundBanksInfo/SoundBanks/Path.

However, for a localized SoundBank, it's not straightforward to get its full path:

SoundBanksInfo/RootPaths/SoundBanksRoot carries the language subfolder, such as English(US),

then the SoundBank path field: SoundBanksInfo/SoundBanks/Path still carries the language folder path,

making it counter-intuitive to construct a full path to the BNK file. 


It would be better if only one of them keeps the language folder.
