Music Skipping still
« on: November 25, 2009, 02:22:02 PM »
my music on the stage always skips when there's char with an intro that stops the music (like onslaught or the kof chars) and when there's a custom ko sound for chars (like most mvc chars, splode's strider for example) can someone please help me out. ive tried changing plugins, mugen cfg, actual songs, downloading new mugen, running virus eliminating programs for my computer and nothing works

Do you have any other programs open when you run mugen?

Could be a variety of things...

- not enough RAM memory in your computer
- too many things running at once on your computer
- certain char intros will make music skip when fights start
- various mp3 problems (size, length, abundance)

I had this same problem with Warusaki3 characters, but I removed the code where there is no music playing. I don't now know if there is an actual fix for this problem.

If nothing else is running in the Bg it's something with the character like AA said or just not enough ram

LOL... that should be plenty enough!

I am running less RAM than that on my downstairs comp and I don't have this problem so you must have something else disturbing your mp3 files...

Do you have anti-virus program that is constantly running? They tend to slow processes down greatly, including boot up and boot down time.

Perhaps you just have too many mugen chars, stages and mp3s and it's having trouble loading it all to cache... have you tried defragmenting your hard drive(s)? That will better organize your hard drives for locationpurposes and could help. lmk

This is one of the things I want to fix with mugen as well. The best answer is to fix that characters intro. If anyone can tell me how to do that please...  :thumbsup:

And my best answer for you is to install better plugins and properly update your mugen config. I hardly have any music problems in mine except the music not starting for the first stage or screen that appears in mugen somtimes (which corrects itselfs after you exit).

Make sure that all of the music has bg.loop = 1 or bgm.loop = 1 on all stages.

My config looks like this:

; Sound configuration (Windows)
; Note: WavVolume and MidiVolume here are not the same
; as the ones in [Options], but they all affect the volume.
[Sound Win]
  ;Set the following to 1 to enable sound effects and music.
  ;Set to 0 to disable.
Sound =1

  ;Set the following to 1 to enable stereo effects in-game
  ;Set to 0 to disable.
StereoEffects =1

  ;This is the width of the sound panning field. If you
  ;Increase this number, the stereo effects will sound
  ;closer to the middle. Set to a smaller number to get
  ;more stereo separation on sound effects.
  ;Only valid if StereoEffects is set to 1.
PanningWidth =240

  ;Set the following to 1 to reverse left and right channels
  ;on your sound card.
ReverseStereo =0

  ;Wave device to use. Choose from:
  ; NONE    - No wave device
  ; AUTO    - Autodetect
  ; DX?     - DirectSound: replace ? with a the device number (from 0 to 9)
  ; DXA?    - DirectSound with Allegro mixer: replace ? with a the device number (from 0 to 9)
  ; WAVEOUTA- High-quality wave-out
  ; WAVEOUTB- Low-quality wave-out
WavDevice =AUTO

  ;Voice Channels to use. Values are from 1 to 16.
  ;If sound quality is poor, try setting a smaller number, such as 8 or 4.
WavChannels =12

  ;Maximum number of voices used for MODs.  This number reduces the
  ;number of available WavChannels.  ModVoices must be less than
  ;WavChannels.  If equal, then MODs will get all the available
  ;channels and therefore no sound effects will play.
ModVoices =6

  ;Midi device to use. Choose from:
  ; NONE    - No midi device
  ; AUTO    - Autodetect
  ; MAPPER  - MIDI Mapper
  ; MID?    - MIDI Device: replace ? with a the device number (from 0 to 9)
  ; DIGMID  - Allegro's Digimid driver
MidiDevice =AUTO

  ;This is the master volume for all wav sounds (affects mp3 volume).
  ;Valid values are from from 0 to 255.
MasterWavVolume =255

  ;Set the volume of wav, midi, mods and CD audio.
  ;Note: WavVolume does not affect mp3 or mod volume.
  ;Valid values are from from 0 to 255.
  ;For CDAVolume only, using -1 will leave the volume unchanged.
WavVolume =150
MidiVolume =-1
MP3Volume =192;This affects all Winamp-compatible plugins as well
ModVolume =-1
CDAVolume =-1

  ;Set the following to 1 to enable and 0 to disable MIDI, MP3, MOD and CD
  ;playback.
PlayMIDI =1
PlayMP3 =1;This affects all Winamp-compatible plugins as well
PlayMOD =0
PlayCDA =0

  ;Set the drive letter of your CD-ROM (if you have more than one
  ;drive). eg, To use drive E, put the following:
  ;  CDADevice = E:\
  ;Leave blank to use your default CD-ROM drive.
CDADevice =

  ;Set the following to 1 to pause BGM playback when switching
  ;away from the MUGEN window.
PauseBGMOnDefocus =1;0

  ;List Winamp-compatible plugins here.
  ;Specify the filename of the plugin and the list of file types to
  ;use the plugin for. One plugin per line.
  ;Example: plugin = plugins/my_plugin.dll, mp3, mp2, mpg
  ;
  ;If music is not looping with a particular plugin, you can try an
  ;optional first argument looptype=1 (seek to zero; may stutter)
  ;or looptype=2 (reload plugin; slow).
  ;Example: plugin = looptype=1, plugins/my_plugin.dll, mp3, mp2, mpg
plugin =looptype=2, plugins/in_mp3.dll, mp3, mp2, mpg
plugin = plugins/in_vorbis.dll, ogg
plugin = plugins/in_adx.dll, adx
plugin = plugins/in_ape.dll, ape
plugin = plugins/in_snes.dll, spc, sp1, sp2, sp3, sp4, sp5, sp6, sp7, sp8, sp9, sp0
plugin = plugins/in_psf.dll, psf, minipsf, psf2, minipsf2, psflib, psf2lib
plugin = plugins/in_qsf.dll, qsf, miniqsf, qsflib
plugin = plugins/in_ym.dll, gym, cym
plugin = plugins/zlib.dll, zip

You will want to install the K-lite plugin pack on your computer. Most of the time the plugins in the plugin folder dont do it. When you install it make sure you get the full install and dont install windows media player classic.

yes i do have an anti virus running constantly. is that the problem?

as far my mp3, i do have alot of unused mp3's in my sound folder and only about 60 stages. my mugen is relatively small compared to most people's

Make sure that all of the music has bg.loop = 1 or bgm.loop = 1 on all stages.

Re wording that its K-lite codec pack.

If you have other formats yes list them all but the most notable thing is the looptype. you may need to adjust that so that it works for your computer. I found that 1 works best for me. My set up doesnt work well with those crappy ogg's and adx files so you need to convert those to mp3s if you get any.

It'll say install other players media player classic. if you have media player ( a newer version) you dont want that it'll will make the other one not work. but you want to list all the formats to be installed.

which all you would have to do is select the full install under the drop down. then uncheck that player.
