Have you ever needed to have two or more sounds play when a grid opens in Clicker 5®? Here’s how to do it!
While building The Haunted Castle, I wanted to have a growl and the sound of the wind play as a grid opened.
I could load one sound into the Play Recorded Sound Or Video slot in the Grid Properties, but I couldn’t designate two sounds in that slot.
With a sound editor, I could have combined the two sounds, and then loaded the combined sound.
But I found a way to do it inside Clicker 5® without needing that extra piece of software. All you need is two hidden cells!
This easy trick depends on using the Speak Or Play This option in the Properties of a grid. It also will work in the Properties of a cell you are using like a button.
Download a pdf from this page for step by step instructions. Once you see how to have multiple sounds play when a grid opens, you can extend the trick. Imagine having a couple of sound effects play, then a spoken sentence, followed by a movie!
It’s all possible with a few transparent cells and Speak Or Play This. You’re only limited by your imagination in turning on the hidden powers of Clicker 5!
