I'm having the same issue as the comment above. I was wondering if I missed a more recent package or if it was still on the to-do list.

=) Thanks.

The thread has now been updated with the latest release which includes what was requested.

This is fantastic

nice job

How did i skip past this mod for so long

Glad you like it!  :)



Imo adjust new time interval setting to 5 seconds.

how can we create a "shout_sounds.swf" folder to make our own sound? :D these sounds are not bad but i really wondered how did u make this swf folder because im hearing different sounds not only "ding" sound, sometimes it is changing and im hearing "dong"  :thumbsup:

The file is in Adobe Flash v9 format, where you will need an appropriate editor to replace the mp3 files contained within.


I'm using Flash Pro CS5.

I can't access anything in the shout_sounds.swf file.

Is there another way to replace/edit the shout_sounds.swf file?

I suppose I could create a new swf if I knew the parameters? (I'm not a Flash developer)

Thanx!

If you want to edit the swf file directly I believe you could attempt using the latest version of SWF-Quicker.
Using CS5 you need to first use something like SWF-Decompiler to convert to fla (export to fla) then you can edit with CS5 before compiling back to swf.

This is disappointing... that I would have to use 3rd Party commercial software just to edit the sounds.  :(
Also SWF-Quicker is PC only.  :(

The demo of SWF-Decompiler does not allow me to export the whole file to .fla.

The previous method of adding SP shoutbox alert sounds simply used an .mp3 file on the server (and used a soundmanager.js function):
http://simpleportal.net/index.php?topic=3817.0
This worked perfectly on SMF 1.16/SP 2.3.1
It would have been nice to have this method updated for use with Soundmanager2, and SP 2.3.5

Thorworx,

You can ask the author (Nathaniel) of that edit for an update as he is still occasionally active on this forum.

As for this particular plugin I opted to use a flash file triggered by html object tags.  Imo the 10 alert sounds are more than adequate & anyone wanting to change those sounds will have to figure out how to edit swf flash files.  There are tutorials and tips on the net for accomplishing this & anyone can find those by using a search engine such as Google.  Questions regarding editing those files including detailed instruction will best come from a flash orientated site (ie. Adobe forum) where their staff may point you to some appropriate software/freeware.
 
  Another option is to make your own swf file and edit this mods object & js parameters to trigger your own sounds. Again, flash support for this procedure would best come from a flash orientated forum.

Just installed this mod and it's working well.

One thing I'm curious about, it seems to alert even when there is no new shout, has anyone found a way to fix this so that it only alerts when a new shout has occurred?

Ozzy Mozzy,

Set the time interval to roughly 2 or 3 seconds. This way it will only sound an alert if the last shout was within that interval else it will not make any sound.

Got it thanks....

Ok one more thing i noticed, it beeps everytime the page loads so if i click on a thread it beeps once that page is loaded. is this right? I thought it would only beep if a shout was made within the time i set it too.

Ozzy Mozzy,

   It should not produce any sound after the set time interval. However it may behave like this if you have altered the sound #. To fix that all you need to do is clear the shoutbox history & then it should function as you wish.

The new version works fine for me, but a few of my members don't like it so would it be possible to add a mute button for those that don't want to hear it, maybe in a future release

Thank you! Great work.

But me too (or maybe some of my users...) want a "mute" button - please can you have a look?

Thank you in advance!

GamePersia,

  Any time you alter the shoutbox sound, clear the shoutbox history. Let me know if that resolves your issue.

GamePersia,

Navigate to: Admin -> Simple Portal -> Shoutbox -> Prune (garbage can graphic of specific shoutbox) 
Checkmark the box titled Delete All Shouts and then click on the Prune Shoutbox button.
