Sounds & Movies

Sound files are imported inside .dfmod packages, and benefit of load order forĀ user convenience and additional customization, as well as loaded directly from disk with predefined format and import options. Songs can be midi files or use a digital format; digital music always override midi songs, which in turn override Daggerfall default midi music.

  • Sound Clips (player, enemies, environment)
    • StreamingAssets/Sound/SoundClipName.wav

    • SoundClipName inside a mod as an AudioClip with any supported format.
