[Request] Audio Tags/Preload

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Mon Jul 02, 2012 4:08 am

Having some issues with IE9 not loading sounds quickly enough, so I need to preload the sounds. Unfortunately preloading all the sounds at once does not make sense, and there is only one condition for that... "All preloads complete".

It would be nice if you could preload specific sounds, and at the same time add a tag for those sounds. Then you could add a condition when preload "tag" completes.

This might solve another issue with not being able to add a tag without playing it as well.newt2012-07-02 04:09:47

Why not just make a title screen, and start preloading all your latency-sensitive sounds there? Chances are they will have downloaded by the time you come to play them.

Apparently every sound is slow to load the first time you run the game.
Loading everything at once would be fine, but what if you have a lot of sounds?
Its just like loading a web page, if its slow to load people will loose interest.
