As @Deltakosh has added sound sprites to BJS, I thought I might experiment with the BJS sound sysytem. Thinking about it, I decided to go back to an old 3D world that I created for the old Blaxxun 3d VRML world system - so I dug out my old VRML files and assembled them into a babylon file in Blender 2.76.
The files are originally 20 years old and I ended up having to use Blender 2.62, as I had all kinds of trouble with other versions of Blender. I then opened that 2.62 file in Blender 2.76.
The original use was to allow people to wander about the scene and chat. That has been changed to create a simple kind of story-telling game with the aim to fill up the detective’s notebook. There is not set order - so just wander at will. When it is full - you get an ending.
The sounds come from 3 sources:
- The sound sprite sounds from a collection I made back 20 years ago.
- The story telling - me ( and I’m no Laurence Olivier!).
- The two pub songs are a looping verse made from two songs sung by Georgia Brown in the 1965 movie “A Study In Terror”
Other additions include an extra 9 lights, more street signs and my little menu system and the opening page. The original files and textures had to be delivered over a phone modem that in most cases was 33.kbaud so they were tiny. Infact the unzipped VRML files are about 520 kbytes, and about 130kbytes zipped.The textures 340 kbytes total.
I used the same textures as you may notice and the .babylon file is 1.07MBytes.

Some of the icons for the menu system were made from icons obtained at game icons.net others from old newspaper images from the 1890s
Basically it tells a story - which is the kind of game I like
