And now, I proudly present the Saints Row 2 award for most obscure bugfix! And the winner is…
Pizza boxes and trash bottles now make a noise when you hit an npc with them
I would like to thank L1pE*BR for reporting this totally obscure bug that no one probably ever even noticed before, so I could spend hours trying to figure out why. In case you’re curious, it was not the sample that was the problem. It was the actual material defined for certain objects in level_objects.xtbl. The following materials only proc a sound when you throw them at something or shoot them, and do not play any audio when you wield them and smack an npc or other object:
- Glass – Medium
- Glass – Heavy
The fix was to simply change their material type to either wood or plastic. This fixes sound for the Pizza Box and “Trash” object that looks like a bottle (not the bottle object itself.)
You can grab the mod here if you want to pack your own, or just wait for the next build of GotR with it included.
