Audio Actions Library

Audio Actions


GameMaker Studio 2 has a complete audio engine that is based on the *.ogg, *.mp3 and *.wav sound formats. Sounds of these types added to the IDE can then be used in your game using the basic audio functions shown below. For things more complex than basic sound effects or playing a single piece of music you can refer to the advanced audio functions which let you modify how a sound is played. There are also a selection of more specialised functions dedicated to streaming audio, positioning audio - to give 3D sound - and grouping audio.

IMPORTANT! When using audio on the HTML5 target, you should be aware that not all browsers support Web Audio and so may not play any sound for your project when run. You can get a general idea of Web Audio support from the following link: Can I Use Web Audio?.
