Self muting

Postby Storm027 » Mon Sep 05, 2016 12:39 am

There is a bug for some episodes where the game mutes itself! when u enter a level after u lost enough lives in it, the music is gone and sound effects return soon, but when I die again, no music even on the world map. when I enter the level or any level for that matter the sound never is gone completely and the only way to return the sound and music is to exist the game completely! how to fix the bug? its irritating having to wait wait wait about 1-2 min for the game to load to the title screen.

On the world map:

That's a mistake in an episode . So there is no mistake with your software or PC, it's in the episode itself. Because in the world map, there should be two music box in it, but sometimes the creator put only just one.

In your other problem, I have no answer for that.

this used to happen to me a lot when episodes used custom player sprites. It might still happen, it's been a long time since i actually sat down and played an episode unironically

I had this problem just a few days ago when I played through The Princess Cliche as a test.
I used to be 8bitmushroom but not anymore.

If the game uses a lot of graphics especially playables it will take a lot of time to load every single graphics and if you load specific levels a lot of times eventually audio will break itself because of playable characters. To fix that, restart SMBX or even better, get SMBX 2.0 to avoid this problem.

I remember I had this same problem. If you have CCCP installed, open it and uncheck "enable mixing." This should fix your problem.

If you have an audio codec that isn't CCCP, there should still be a way you can add SMBX as an exception.
I've decided to cancel SMBXville Under Seige. After my 1st Senior year of college, I realized I wouldn't have enough time to devote to finishing my four-level episode. Apologies to those who cared.

closing and reopening the game is the best cure for this problem as far as I can tell. I can't stand to play without sound, it makes me lose more than I usually do.

Yeah I can understand that. With no audio it's less enjoyable to play. ;P

I really wonder if there was sound settings in game, I wonder if turning them on and off would work and fix the problem. are there sound settings in game we can access while we play

Or just take LunaLUA-SMBX where audio engine is completely replaced and it requires no extra codecs and works stable.
