How do I prevent my game from freezing when sound is playing

Just started using Construct 2? Post your questions here

I'm working on a simple topdown shooter and I have recently started to add soundeffects but whenever any sound is playing, my game freezes up for several seconds.
The worst part is that not only the game itself freezes up, but also my current browser (Google Chrome) freezes up and sometimes even my computer.

What should I do to correct this?

This shouldn't normally be happening, could you share your capx, so we could have a look?
I told my dentist I had trouble with my teeth and asked her to fix it without looking in my mouth..

You will need to use a free hosting site, such as provided by Dropbox, Microsoft, Google etc. Try to avoid those that force the downloader to wait or sit through ads.

Then save your project as a single file '.capx' and upload to the hosting site. Provide a 'public' link here.

To bypass the posting restriction for new users, just insert a couple of spaces in the URL at the beginning, e.g.

Code: Select all
h <SPACE>ttp<SPACE>://www<SPACE>.myhost.com/mygame.capx
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

Here's the capx.Here's a backup file, in case the capx don't work.
