The getextension() function doesn’t seem to exist anymore to get a file extension and I can’t seem to find any other way to check a file type.

if file_name.getextension()=="wav":

The String class still has a get_extension() method in Godot 4. See the docs here:

Here’s a usage example:

var st = "c:/my/file/name.txt"
print(st.get_extension())

prints → txt
