    Discord Soundboards with DOE Sound Extension

    Update 10/12/18: New version! No more trying to mimic your Discord log in. Now you can use this bot as both your soundboard and the program that reads your sound links from Fantasy Grounds.



    Want to use a Discord bot for a soundboard during your games? No Virtual Audio Cable needed. So Syrinscape needed. Now you can control it from within Fantasy Grounds. Thanks to dulux-oz we have the DOE Sound Extension. A friend of mine named Paco wrote a windows program to mimic your Discord log in and send it chat commands. With this program you can set up sound links in the DOE Sound Extension. Here is all you need:

    Set up a Discord bot: https://discordapp.com/developers/applications/
    Create a bot, go to the tab that actually makes it a bot and enable that. Name it whatever you like. Now you have to invite that bot to your discord server and give it whatever permissions it needs to reach your voice channel.
    Find it's token ID
    Copy this link to your clipboard and paste it in a browser: https://discordapp.com/oauth2/authorize?client_id=xxxxxx&scope=bot
    Replace the xxxxxx in that link with your token ID and then go to the link. You will get in interface that will let you invite the bot to your server. (You may have to scroll that little window down.)
    That should list the bot as a member on your Discord server. Set up whatever permissions (if any) it needs to access your voice channel just like you would for a player.

    Download the file in the link provided below, extract it.

    https://mega.nz/#!2U1wXQBS!sy0wZelH7tAFbL5x5YHv4h2EDocQMUTG9CMbEcs f0y0

    Read the README file and follow those simple instructions which include running a couple of files and providing the Token ID of the bot and the voice channel ID you want it to join. You can always get the channel ID by right clicking on the channel.

    Put your sound effects in the sounds folder where you extracted the program. Run the program when you want it to be active and it will join your channel.

    When you create Soundlinks in Fantasy Grounds, use this prefix: DiscordSFX://
    Example: You have bat.mp3 in the sounds folder. DiscordSFX://bat is the sound link.

    This requires the DOE Base and Sound Extensions:

    DOE Sound Extension

    Donations for this would be appreciated. Paco's pay-pal is [email protected]. Consider donating to dulux-oz as well please at [email protected].

    Have questions? I don't get updates that someone has replied here. PM me for questions.

    Thanks for posting this. I've read this a few times over the last few days. Can you help me a bit more with what this would do for me? I'm already using the DOE sound extension and love it. I already pipe syrinscape sounds through discord using a separate discord instance from my voice. Would this obviate the need for me to have that separate discord instance? Just trying to understand if this would be useful to me. Thanks!

    If anyone would like, I have a new version of the exe that removes the prefix so that you may use multiple prefixes to control multiple bots. Of course, this will require you to add those prefixes to your sound links in the DOE sound extension.

    To clarify what this does for me, let me elaborate.

    I have myself, four players, a music bot and a soundboard bot all connected to the same voice Discord channel. The bots listen to a specific chat channel that myself and all my players are also in. The Mimic program simply lets me use the sound links extension in Fantasy Grounds to send my bots commands to the Discord chat channel without me having to switch over there and type something like "!play <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SOMEAMBIENTMUSIC>" Instead I have a link in the Sound Extension that says "mimic://'play <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SOMEAMBIENTMUSIC>" so I can quickly control the sound with pre-game link preparation and real time control during the session.

    There is no need for virtual audio cables or a subscription for Syrinscape. I do all of this with no money spent at all (except for what I donated to Paco, but I didn't have to). I just have sound effect files on my hard drive the soundboard bot uses, and I link to YouTube videos for the music and background audio.

    My Bot in Discords keep saying "I don't take orders from you"

    what's the issue here?

    The configuration file for your bot needs to include your name for folks it will take orders from. I hate how sassy it is by default.

    I couldn't get it working, sent you a PM with the details

    Attached is the version that allows you to put the discord command prefix in Fantasy Grounds rather than coding only one of them when the mimic program starts.

    Does this still work? The DOE Sound Extension doesn't let me check it off, it has a red X on the box.

    Yes. You just need to update the base and sound extension to make sure you have the most recent versions of both.
