Hey guys,

its been for a while that I am flicking with this problem so I really need help. Its the sound files..I wanna play a sound or an ambient track and sometimes on some maps it wont work...

2 of my maps have no problem, and I did the same thing on a third map(playing sound from a script_origin) and it wont work, even with the same soundfiles and same soundaliases...

,,"If the first column for a row is blank, then the row is ignored" ,"If the first column for a row is blank, then the row is ignored", # The first non-comment line of a sound alias file specifies the key name for all values appearing in this column.,, "# This means it is safe to swap entire columns around, though you should never swap partial columns.",, "# You can invent new keys, but the game will ignore them if it doesn't know about them.",, "# You can leave out keys, but the ""name"" and ""file"" keys must always be present.",, ,name,name of the alias that is used to play this sound (required) ,sequence,"used to uniquely identify alias entries when more than one sound goes to an alias, used only to catch unwanted duplicates (default = 0)" ,file,the name of the file that contains the sound data (required) ,vol_min,"0 is silent, 1 is full volume (default = 1)" ,vol_max,"0 is silent, 1 is full volume (default = same as vol_min)" ,vol_mod,"blank causes no effect on vol_min and vol_max, otherwise the string must match a string in the volumemodgroups.def file and the value in that file corresponding to that string will be used to adjust vol_min and vol_max, clamped to the valid range" ,pitch_min,"1 is normal playback, 2 is twice as fast, 0.5 is half as fast (default = 1)" ,pitch_max,"1 is normal playback, 2 is twice as fast, 0.5 is half as fast (default = same as pitch_min)" ,dist_min,"within this distance in inches, the sound is always full volume (default = 120)" ,dist_max,"outside this distance in inches, the sound is not started.

If a number, then this sound's volume will be multiplied by that number (a percentage between 0 and 1) any master sound is playing. If blank, then neither master nor slave." ,loadspec,"space-separated list of which maps should use this alias; eg, ""burnville dawnville"". If blank, the alias is used on all maps." ,compression,"a string corresponding to an entry in ""XMAUpdate.tbl"" which is used to determine compression by XMAUpdate.exe" ,secondaryaliasname,"defined the name of an additional sound alias to play in addition to the current alias being played. Note that it is an error for the secondaryalias to also define a secondaryaliasname (eg, if B is a secondaryalias of A, B is not allowed to have its own secondaryalias)." ,volumefalloffcurve,if blank uses the linear curve which can not be changed. A string 'XXXX' corresponds to the curve defined by the file 'soundaliases/XXXX.vfcurve' ,startdelay,defaults to no delay. The value is the number of milliseconds to delay starting the sound by ,speakermap,if blank uses the default speakermappings which cannot be changed. A string 'XXXX' corresponds to the speakermap defined by the file 'soundaliases/XXXX.spkrmap'. ,reverb,"blank means the alias is affected normally by wet and dry levels, ""fulldrylevel"" forces the alias to use a full drylevel (ignoring the global drylevel), ""nowetlevel"" forces the alias to use no wetlevel (ignoring the global wetlevel)" ,lfe percentage,this determines what percentage of the highest calculated spatialized speaker volume should be passed to the LFE. blank means no LFE for the sound ,center percentage,this determines what percentage of the volume should be redirected to the center channel (equal percentage taken from all speakers). ,platform,"used by XMAUpdate to determine whether the alias should be processed for a particular platform.

I have noticed sometimes that sounds literally die, when for example, too many effects are playing or you have an effect that loops so many times it exceeds how many entities you can have on the map.

I would suggest to put in debug lines "iprints" where your sound should be playing to show that the script is indeed running. I would also suggest to use "tick" your dev scripts in the tools and check those while your map starts/plays to see if you have exceeded some type of entity/element.

I'm sure your script is fine for playing from an origin, but if you can post that just to get a second opinion. Your call.

I'm also not even sure what you posted in the code box up there, looks like text from a soundalias but the format is all messed up. I think if you open it with a text editor and copy that to paste here, it keeps the format and we can read it properly.
