Ok.. this time I am having issues with the other end of the greetings. My sounds are playing just fine, but the actual greeting messages are not playing this time.
This is what my level 0 (default) looks like:
[level] level = 0 name = New Player flags = aM# greeting = ^2Welcome ^1New Player ^2to the server! greeting_sound = sound/greetings/newplayer.wav
Sound is playing, just not the greeting text itself.
