Sound warning - what is PCM format=1? (SOLVED)

WARNING:SOUND: Only wav-files with 8 or 16 bit PCM format (format=1) supported, got format=65534 and bitdepth=16.
ERROR:SOUND: Failed to decode sound (-2)
ERROR:GAMESYS: A sound could not be played, error: -8. Message 'play_sound' sent from main:/instance5#script to main:/instance5#sound4.

What means those magic numbers in warnings and errors and what do I need to do to get rid of them?



The format=1 is relating to format this specification. 1 means PCM format.

If the format= 65534then it’s something wrong with the resource.
Double check the type of your source file first.
