best place to host sounds for UFO AI?
« on: October 21, 2010, 01:47:12 pm »
just wondering where the developers would prefer these files hosted?

i've just opened a "freesound.org" account... if i post sounds to that site, and link to them from here, is that good enough?

also, what file specs are you guys are after? that is, mono/stereo, format (wav/mp3) & bitrate? maybe there should be a sticky outlining those requirements?

cheers!

Well i think it seems to be ok. But we just need ambience, death and hurt sounds. Other sounds has been already replaced by my sounds (weapons/footsteps/geosphere...) in the 2.4 dev version. Ambience sounds should be in stereo (the sounds should actually make use of stereo) any other in mono. Format: Ogg with a relativ good bitrate but we can reconvert them if its necessary. Please dont post any sounds under 44kHz. You can find any further information here: http://ufoai.ninex.info/wiki/index.php/Music_and_sounds

the licenses at freesounds.org are not compatible - afair they release under cc-sampling

ah, so it is. CC-sampling is no good, eh?

in that case, I guess back to the original question: best place to host? stash them on mediafire.com (etc) and post a link? or is there somewhere we can ftp to directly?

we don't have public upload space available, use the hoster you like and post a link

as a license we need gpl2 or later or cc-by-sa

interesting website... it's obviously only in its infancy (300 sound files total!???!?!?) but you've gotta start somewhere.

i made an account and have posted a couple of links to sounds in the appropriate threads.

could you please credit The Bard of Blasphemy if any sounds are used?
