I wonder if I am mistaken, but if I use sideradio, the wave2lip mouth animation does not seems to work.


If I do, with the correct description.ext, .ogg and .lip file.


I will see his mouth move without any issue.
But if I do

Chief sideradio “STR_HELLO_MESSAGE”

I will hear the message clearly but his mouth does not move.

Am I doing something wrong?

I am pretty sure you will agree that the lip effect should be played while using sideradio as well. It is quite weird to hear a soldier talking on the radio, but with no lips movement.

It's an immersion killer!

This issue was processed by our team and will be looked into. We thank you for your feedback.

Using kbTell, .lip files only work correctly when using the "DIRECT" channel. With any other channel, the lips do not move at all if there is a corresponding .lip file in the sound folder. If there is NOT a .lip file, the character's lips will move in the default, fragmented manner.

@Astaroth I've checked - it's resolved. Ticket can be closed.
