Ambient sounds (Howto JCS)

Ambient sound is sound that is located at a particular place in a level. The closer you are to the sound, the louder it will be. JCS has a number of ambient sounds you can use in your level. Here's how to...

1) Put an ambient sound event somewhere in a level (It's in the "Gameplay" - "Sound" group).

2) Before you click OK, you have to choose a sound. This is done by entering a number in the "Sample" box. This number can be anything from 0 till 255.

Here's a list (made by Syntax and modified by me) that tells you the kind of sound you get with each number:
