Hey guys, I want to get the duration (play length) of a sound effect which is being played.
I've looked into:

JavaScript:
AudioManager.playSe
AudioManager.createBuffer
AudioManager.updateBufferParameters

I tried printing to console fields from WebAudio class, like totalTime, loopLength etc, but it seems like the WebAudio is still not fully populated in these functions, and all I get is null or undefined values (however, printing the buffer to console I can see the values populated, I guess this happens later).

I've been banging my head for a while now! How can I access the actual Web Audio data?

One approach would be to open the audio file in a media player (e.g. VLC) and view the length of the track.

You should see the file in the audio/se folder.

I may be misunderstanding your need, but this would be the easiest approach to finding the length I can think of.

EDIT: Also, what's the usecase for the track length?

I need to get the length while the game is running because I'm using it to close the text window after a voiceover has finished playing.

Ahh, I see. You could add a Wait command (based on length of SE) after you initiate the SE, then close the window.

I don't want to manually enter each file length - I want to program it in automatically. I know my way around events well enough, looking for a JS solution to this.
