Sound modding in KCD
To learn about modding of music, please refer to Sequence Music Engine in KCD
To help the community with creating mods that modify in-game sounds you will need FMOD projects and original sounds.
As the sound files are present in the "sound.pak" file within *.bank files the FMOD projects are not included in game data. You can download it directly from Warhorse Studios pages.
- FMOD project download (note: please download it only if you really need it in order not to generate big traffic)
- Download FMOD version 1.04.09 from https://www.fmod.com/
When you open the kcd project you can see various event folders in the event editor. It contains all sounds that are used in the game.
