[fe8] how do you make sound effects play in battle animations?

in fe7 you can call sound effects in battle animations by doing SXXXX where XXXX is the sound in the music definitions.
but apparently SXXXX doesn’t work in fe8? everytime i try to play a sound it mutes itself.
I would have tried using CXX like in battle anims but I’m looking for spell sounds in particular for this one.

can anyone help me out?

SXXXX should be right, do you have the same problem with all sounds or just some?

It might be muting because you could be calling a sound that doesn’t exist in fe8.
Can’t say I know what spell sound that is though…

it might also be an issue with the sound priority, come to think of it. what happens if you disable music?
