Request: Replace Audio

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Tue Jul 17, 2012 2:08 am

I have a simple feature request - I'm sure some of you will agree this will be very useful.

At the moment, if I have a sound effect, and I want to replace it with an edited version, as you often need to, I need to go through all of these steps:

1. Import new audio under different name
2. Find all my audio actions and change them to play that one
3. Delete old audio
4. Rename new audio

I would really appreciate the option to replace an audio track - perhaps a right click option 'upload new version' or something.

This seems to me as something that would be fairly commonly needed, and the workaround is very labor intensive.

What do you think?

I agree. However, if you get into the habit of playing sounds & music by name then all you have to do is delete the old files and import the new ones with the same name. A replace/update file option would still be nice, though.

All you need to do is save as a folder project then paste over the audio files in the project folder.
