It looks like they've finally added the ability to use built-in system sounds with roAudioResource! http://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdkdoc/roAudioResource

Wow! Finally. Thanks Endless for noticing. If only there was a place where Roku could, you know, let us know this sort of thing had happened, like a bulletin board or something.
Nice to have that "'deadend" sound, I never recorded that.

Re: System sounds added to roAudioResource!

Cool. Smiley Happy That will save some space in the channel packages. When playing the default sounds, can we have them play at the volume the user has set on their roku box so it is standardized across channels without having to specify the 25/50/75 percentage volume trigger? Something like sound.trigger() would be the default volume based on the roku setting?

They do change with the system menu sounds setting, unlike user-recorded sounds. The docs show them set at 50 and thats what i tried and it seems correct.

So if you change the setting in the roku menu, they're at the new volume without needing to change the script? ie if you go to settings/audio and change it to "off" then with the script volume at (50) they don't make any sound?
