Problem with BGM suddenly stopping

Postby ltcolbsan » Sat Sep 22, 2012 8:30 pm

Hi, I'm still relatively new at all this, but I'm getting pretty far into my game and I discovered a weird problem.
I have a BGM playing, it plays fine for a little while, and then suddenly it will just stop. It's always at the same moment in the dialogue, but there's no actual command there for the BGM to stop. This happens to some of the BGMs but not all of them, so it's really odd and I'm not sure why it's doing it...
Any insight would be appreciated.

I don't know if this will help at all, but here are screenshots showing one of the trouble BGMs and where it stops:

You seem to be having the same problem i'm encountering. (Granted this thread is a couple of months old)

For some reason, on a specific page, the BGM will suddenly cut out right as an SFX seems to play (which is what your screenshots seem to suggest too)

It's weird. I've completely remade the ENTIRE page/scene, but it still happens...and the BGM and SFX play fine over each other on the previous pages :cry:

If anyone knows a fix, I'd be glad to hear it.

Edit add: It seems like, in my case at least, it has something to do with BGM's running for several pages as the instant I fade-out the current BGM and start a new one on the problematic page, those SFX no longer cut out the BGM :shock:
