Update 2.4.2 Footstep Sounds

Hi,

Footstep sounds are waaaay too loud.

Previous fix I believe was to manually change AudioSource volume on the Character's feet? I had this working well, but after updating it seems to have reset perhaps, or being overridden by the new 'SharedAudioSource' ( Idon't recall seeing this before)

Switching of the Audio sources at runtime removes any sound, but changing the 'Volume' to near 0 doesn't affect volume at all....

Also, it seems that FootEffect component volume is not there anymore?

What is the best current way to reduce/adjust the footstep volume?

Thanks

I think I discovered the Footstep Surface effect volume Min/Max.

Is this the correct way? Works, just want to make sure that it's best practice!

You need to create a new AudioSource on the character and customize it to your liking, then the sounds of the steps will be played according to the specified template. At least in my case, it works when the character has no body.

Really?

Is there somewhere that that is documented to do that?

So if I do this though, will this affect any other sounds character related ie if I'm turning it right down low on volume?
