In the core project, you programmed your monster to say a statement and animate at the same time.

In this add-on, you'll add a sound parameter that is associated with the emotion of the monster.

To start, click on the sounds tab.

Add a sound to play for the happy, angry, and sad emotions.

This example adds the laugh sound for happy, string accent for sad, and screech for angry. Great!

Now drag out a play sound block.

When clicked, it plays the sound you added to the sound menu.

To play this sound at the same time your monster says a statement and expresses an emotion, add another input to the defined show feelings block.

Right-click to edit, then select input.

Name the string something that describes the sound action.

This example names it "sound." Click okay.

You created a sound parameter for the show feelings block.

Put the play sound block under the say block, then add the sound parameter inside the play sound block.

Finally, type the sound that will play in the input space you just coded for the show feelings block.

Test your code.

(string music)

(laughing)

(screeching)

The sound plays with the wrong animation.

To fix this, move the play sound block above the say block. Test again.

(string music)

(laughing)

(screeching)

It works!

Now it's your turn.

Add a sound parameter to your show feelings block.

Then write the new sound in the new input space.
