Is there any way to customize the sounds in the game? I was going thru the dd poker files installed on my computer and noticed the sounds are .wav files. I downloaded a few wav sounds and copied them into the audio folder and gave them the same names as the old ones i was replacing but cant seem to get them to work. Anybody ever try this with success?
Seems that when I replace the wav files and name them the same as the ones I replaced it makes no sound effect at all. Will keep at it and I hope I get it.
I hope I don't get attacked for responding to you Albatross, but I know exactly what you are saying.
Years ago there was a card game web site that was run by Microsoft I believe.
They had a lot of .wav files that created sounds after certain things happened. Everyone I knew had searched the internet and replaced a lot of those sounds with sounds of their liking.
It is my suspicion that with that Microsoft web site they were using any .wav file that were in the proper folder for sounds.
It may well be that Doug has programmed the sounds from the main server so that the only sounds that can be used are those that are specifically programmed by Doug for use in ddpoker.
I tried using other .wav files about 4 years ago and it did not work for me either, I would love to see a response from Doug as to why we can not replace sound files in ddpoker with normal .wav format files.

I went into the above mentioned folder and replaced the bell2 wav clip with a wav clip that i grabbed off of a site. After I put it in there I renamed it bell2 because I figured that the way the program was written it would be looking for the bell2 file to play. But when I did that all I got was silence when it was signaling me it was my turn. I don't think the bit rate was the same as the old file but that shouldn't matter right?
Whats wrong with making something unique? People change their ringtones on their phones all the time. All houses dont have the same doorbell, cars have different sounding horns. After playing thousands of hands im hearing the bell in my sleep. lol
Works for me. Make sure DD is not running when you do the file replacement. Make sure you get the file name exactly the same (check properties of the file or use a Command Prompt to verify both file name and extension match with nothing extra).
Something else to try is just renaming one of the original files. Rename bell.wav to bell.wav.bkp for instance. If you start DD and that sound effect still works, then there must be multiple instances on your computer.
On Linux you could use the find command to search for all instances of a file:
