Default sdk and sound channels

Hi i am creating a nightclub map and have put wav files in on triggers that contantly play (not to everyones liking) but its a private map.

the problem i have is when it hits the 32 channel limit it stops the music to start the next sound. so when there are a few zeds etc.. they music jumps / restarts etc..

I would like to keep it on a trigger and not looking to put as an ogg file.

Is there a way to tell teh trigger or the game NOT to stop that sound and leave it running?

Cheers in advance for the help!

Actually the only solution I was thinking would fit was converting to ogg...

Hmm. As I understand it that is a limitation of engine, in fact iirc most game engines can only support a limited amount of simultaneous audio streams.

Even dedicated audio software starts to struggle after a certain amount and that's only got to handle audio steams.

My advice to you would be to make the map music .ogg and include it in the map download. Of course anyone that joins a server won't get the music but that's just the way it is.

Surely there must be a way to tell the engine not to stop that particular sound when channels are full mmmmm

Not entirely lol

I got all the music which downloads with the map included in the rom file but yes would stop the problem but then even doing that way would not fit what im trying to do

Just not sure what setting will stop the engine stopping the sound playing.

Meaning if i had 3 songs playing and the channels filled up instead of stopping the music when it reaches it , it will stop the next inline.

Just need to find that value which tells the engine to not stop the trigger/sound mmmmmm

Technically I am correct as you can't download .oggs from servers. The only way for them to be used is to download them yourself which it does state in Gartleys post.
