3D Custom Sounds

Ok, so I've been trying to get some custom sounds to work right in my maps, but no matter what I try I can't seem to get them to play from a certain direction. I've tried multiple settings in the snt file and activating them from both Areas and sound entities. With distance they will get quieter but there is no direction to the sound.

Is there something special I have to do to make custom sounds 3d? Any help is appreciated.

I think it depends on where you place the sound entity on the map.

Well, I've tried placing them in all different locations, but it never sounds like it's coming from that direction. I can get default sounds to work fine, but not custom sounds.

RE: 3D Custom Sounds

I did some more digging and started opening some of the default sound files and noticed that most, if not all, sound files are mono. So, I set my sounds to mono and now they play from the direction I set it. There's a slight loss in quality of the sound, but I can deal with that.
