AlAudio driver

Post by XaNKoNII » Sun Apr 23, 2017 12:19 am

So in making a new DM map i reached the point of putting a custom music into it. Being somewhat new into leveldesign i had too look up ways to import music into unreal, found the "old" way of making a mp3>wav>ImpulseTracker>Umx wich i couldn´t quite get it working as it played 60 seconds but then it started from the beggining.
Frustrated that i couldn't get it working correctly, i tryed the "new way" using the new All audio driver and It does indeed work charm... BUT i noticed that when i use Unreal Tournament´s Default Driver the song simply won´t play :(

So my question is, will this happen to everyone else? Meaning that by using a custum song with the new driver it crosses the chance of the map being able to be used by servers?

Any new format is not available for a default client. This "development" is pointless for Vanilla stages. UMX is the main format in here.

We can use other formats by only updating the client install - you cannot convince all of them to update their install because they don't read forum/s. Beside this... in some maps these awesome drivers are crashing clients :thudown: . I have a mod restoring Level music for new comers, all time new comer with super duper audio driver was crashing because mod was refreshing music and that UMX was crapped up, and newer drivers are in fact rushed and not sanitized at this point. Default Galaxy driver from UT for me was always fully operational, regarding to "turtuals" posted by a dude which was not testing everything to see if happiness has felt from heaven, because he don't play maps and mods which I'm playing, probably he is playing CTF-Face and DM-Deck16][ and nothing else...

So that means as a developer i should stick to the "old" way of doing it... converting to Wav > a modified Impulse Tracker file > UMX ?
Guess it´s time to learn how impulse Tracks really work, otherwise i won´t be able to overcome the Looping problem :(
