Music Skipping
« on: September 19, 2009, 02:06:59 PM »
Yes. I like many other people who play mugen have this problem. and its ANNOYING!! I first got the in_mp3pro plug in and it worked for a little bit then it just started skipping. then I got spidermew's in_mad150b plugin and it worked like a charm for a couple days and now its skipping. then it was recommended that i get the in_vorbis plugin and have it set to play oggs with the mp3pro and mad150 b plug in for some reason that fixed the problem for a tad but then just stopped working. Please help!!

Notes:
- im using vista
- the skipping occurs when i have one of splodes or big eli king's chars who have the mvc endings when you end the match with a hyper
-happens with chars that have long intros (like onslaught or kof chars)

What Mugen are you using. I would always try to start a fresh copy and load it with you characters, stages and sounds. Then I would copy over your select.def to make things easier and see if that fixes the problem. Also, make sure you have no add ware or viruses as this could be corrupting things. Ita strange that after each plugin you have no problem for awhile then it stops working after a while, it sounds like there may be a malicious program altering you system files. I could be wrong but your problem is strange. Sounds to me like either your system files are corrupt somewhere or you need a fresh copy of Mugen.  Try this: http://www.4shared.com/file/124785876/c76e7e3c/MUGEN.html This is a setup I created, Make a fresh copy and try it out, if it works then use this as a base for a new setup.

The one I posted last is the same (WinMugen Plus) but configured correctly, if you want, try to use that and see if it helps if not then it has to be your system files and I would then suggest a system restore with a virus scan and spyware scan.

Its more or less the configuration of the plugins. The music file type. I prefer MP3. I noticed that if you have your plugins set to play one type the others quality may lack. Make sure that they loop on the stages. Bgm.loop= 1. and also on the screenpack, I noticed that if you have them all loop its better but if the track ends early on the versus screen for instance the music on the stage may get choppy or not play at all.

I would say that mine is playing perfectly but it hasnt been since I recently ripped it apart. but before that perfect.

I recommended you convert your MP3 files to Ogg or adx files because MP3 music causes mugen to skip and crash. Not to mention they automatically loop.

actually that not the best idea. Ogg doesnt crash mugen when it skips but it skips more often. The only reason mp3 crashes mugen is because of those characters that pause the music during certain movies constantly like Characters that stole Sakuya Izoyois time stop dagger attack.

Its one of things I wanted to state to creators of characters and stages. Also Ogg takes up more space than mp3, which is bad when youre like me and have almost 1000 stages.

One of my suggestions, when I developed my screenpack was to see if it was possible to dim the background music rather than shut it off and turn it on during these moments. Or fade in fade out.

I guess try what BT and AA250 say, I just find it weird that you said you keep configuring in plugins and things go good for awhile and then go back to bad. That to me sounds like a system problem. I don't know, could be anything, Try what they say and see if thats helps. I have never had any problems with MP3's other than some of them not playing cause the file was too large.

Edit: One more suggestion. Try updating your sound card drivers. See if this helps.

That sounds like a good idea. I also noticed that my stuff runs nicely because I installed some codecs that came with one of my old screenpacks. I think if these ideas fail some one should be able to upload the plugins and mugen.cfg files for you to see if those work too.
