Ambient sound looping and following player?

A Question for Half-Life

Question Solved

This Question was answered and a solution was chosen.
I am trying to add an ambience to a level I'm working on and I want it to play all around the map and loop but I'm having a hard time making this possible. Is there a way to do it?

EDIT: I would also like to know how to fix the changelevel trigger. Mine teleports me to inside the floor of my next level when I want it to spawn me from the ceiling falling to the ground.

    [This texts is taken from part of my answer regarding question submission titled "Why custom sounds don't play or loop properly?".]

    Loop audio files contain "Cue". This cue tells the engine where to loop the sound.

    With the GoldWave, you can add cue to an audio file.

    For example:


    Position: The part where the loop begins.

    Time To Next: The loop ends in this part and starts again from the Position part.

    Name: You can give the name you want.

    To add Cue:

    1-)  Select the "Cues" button.

    2-)  If you want the sound to loop through from start to finish, select "Beginning of the file" and click "OK".

    Then save the sound and try it in the game.

    I hope I helped.

    There's a flag to make it play everywhere, you can place 4 or more of these on all corners of the map to simulate stereo sound.

    The placement of your info_landmark is important, check it's not stuck in the floor or something. The position of the player relative to the origin map's info_landmark will be his position relative to the destination map's info_landmark.
