Your Opinion Pls: Option4dev2load snds+music w/ inital dwnld

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Mon Mar 10, 2014 3:31 pm

I am trying to make several language learning games,
thus having the sound and music files firing instantly is extremely important to the user experience,
so
I am wondering if Ashley ( @Ashley ) would you please consider creating an option for the developer
to click a button to load / preload sounds and music in the initial download.

I know that this will add to the download time, but please let us ( the game developer) make the decision to add the time instead of it being made for us.

Just a thought,
and thanks for reading.

oh, and Ashley if you are reading this.
Music files (music only)
on iOS devices do not respond to volume controls BTW.
I have tested on 2 iOS devices with Safari and Chrome BTW and Music plays at normal 0db no matter the volume setting I put in the event sheet. oh, (still iOS) and Mute doesn't seem to work on music either
but all silent does work.
just a FYI. ( there are a few posts about this music iOS issue ) :D

Yes. I think there should be an option to download music and sound files first. I can actually spot Construct 2 created projects really easily, and it's because they don't have music playing until after 30sec. The music buffering really doesn't work.

I'll throw in my +1 to this. Other rather, have two options: an overall setting, and an individual setting for (for example) having your main menu music and/or level 1 music load instantly.

Having the choice would certainly be useful.
