icon Error logs about neather sound files (+1)  
The latest alpha is logging the following errors:

Sound file "NeatherMad.ogg" failed to load.  Check whether the filenames are correct.
Sound file "NeatherScared2.ogg" failed to load.  Check whether the filenames are correct.
Sound file "NeatherScared3.ogg" failed to load.  Check whether the filenames are correct.


Interestingly, my ini file has both of the following entries:

HalphDie=H2_die1.ogg;H2_die2.ogg
HalphOof=H2_oof1.ogg;H2_oof2.ogg
HalphScared=H2_scared1.ogg;H2_scared2.ogg


NFrustrated=NeatherMad.ogg
NScared=NeatherScared2.ogg;NeatherScared3.ogg


Might be worth mentioning, I have not been hearing any error beeps.

EDIT: Looks like I have had error messages about this as far back as 2018! Maybe this is a long-standing issue.

Huh, no kidding!

I appreciate the report. You're right -- it seems these sound effects have been expected, but are missing from the build, for a long time (maybe forever...who knows).

Added them in this PR.

You can just add these sfx to your Data/Sounds dir to make the error messages go away for now.

We'll have to generate a new master .dat file, embedding these sfx, and then provide a new full installer, in order to make this issue go away for everyone. Actually, I can include the sfx files in the Windows patch.

Um... There's been some confusion here.

In RPG the Neather is actually Halph but Tendry doesn't know who he is and assumes he's a belowgrounder working for the Empire.

You've included sound effects in the patch for KDD's Neather. So now Halph sounds like the Neather when you bump into walls and pits.

You're right. I was confused.

I've removed the KDD Neather sounds from future patch installs and removed mention of the distinct KDD Neather sfx from the code. The Neather role will now play the Halph sounds in the next build.

Can confirm in 1.2.8.325 that the correct sound effects play for Halph/Neather.
