Summary0000061: Player Jump Sound is Always Pitch-Shifted
DescriptionAny sound assigned to a player's jump sound via SNDINFO is always pitch-shifted, regardless of whether or not it is exclusively referred to in SNDINFO via "$pitchshift" or placed after a "$pitchshiftrange 0" statement. Weird thing is, it does not happen for any other player sound.

Pitch shifting sounds is turned on in options.
Steps To ReproduceRun GZDoom (v2.3.2) with square1.pk3 as an IWAD. Start the game. Jump around. Get hurt. Land on things. Only the jump sound appears to be pitch-shifted, while others are not, despite the SNDINFO saying so. Or maybe others are as well, and I haven't noticed?
Additional InformationStarted happening around v2.3.0 of GZDoom. I'm running the 32-bit executable on a 64-bit OS, just in case the build matters.
TagsNo tags attached.

I can see where it comes from but you are still out of luck.

This just inherits the setting from the original *jump definition inside gzdoom.pk3.
Unfortunatly I have no clue how this player sound stuff is supposed to work, it's all black voodoo that never was properly documented. The change comes from properly getting the pitch from the outermost definition that is being played, the old code did not do that and got the pitch from the referenced sound which was 0.

Thanks, Graf. Glad to know I'm not just hearing things. :)

So what are my options, here? Is there something I can do on my end to ensure proper behavior until a fix is in place?

Sadly right now I have no idea. Even overriding the pitch for the correct sound does not work, and as I said, the code is rather obtuse and never was documented. I frankly have no idea yet what Randi was doing here, the system is extremely overcomplicated and something I'd remove in a heartbeat if there wasn't so much stuff depending on it.
