Windows Phone Sound Issue

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong but I'm having an issue with my windows phone8 not being able to download audio files from the sounds folder.

When deploying on WP8, the app gets stuck on the loading screen. When I move sound files to music, it completes the loading and continues. In the game, the phone streams the file completely fine but does have a short lag which I want to get rid of. Tested on Lumia 521

On WP8.1, whether the files are in the sound folder or not, the loading completes , however I lose all the sound in the game. Tested on Lumia 635

Also, is the Windows phone limited to only playing one audio file at a time because everytime a new audio is played the last one closes?

Welcome to the party!! :D

Sorry but I been facing similar issues on my Windows Phone 8.1 game.. and apparently its Microsoft's problem. They have a crappy Audio support in their WP Internet Explorer. @Ashley and me have been trying hard to get MS's attention to fix this damned issue!

Here is the Post I created about a month ago:

Look for the IE Connect link created by Ashley.

Currently this guy from MS is working on the issue (After we bothered him all day)

I request you to visit his twitter and do the same!! Tweet him (and other MS IE devs ) your problem until they get serious about finding a fix!! :D
BTW.. he has been really nice and helpful, so be nice too ;)

Thanks for replying.
I feared it was a Microsoft issue which is disappointing because they sent me a bunch of emails to try Construct2 for the WP.
I'll tweet as well him as well.

Thanks again :)

Audio basically doesn't work on WP8.0, the HTML5 support is too poor. Audio should work on WP8.1, in theory, but in practice is subject to that bug where the game will likely crash after a few moments.

I purchased the licence and now I'm pissed. You should say in the description of the product that Windows Phone 8.0 and 8.1 is not supported. You cannot say that you can make software for them if the sounds are not working at all or are crappy. Also you should mention that you cannot use adverts in Windows Phone Apps. All this I did found out after purchase and now I'm not able to do what I did was going to. I lost really much time with Construct 2.
