<a name="ambient_sound" />
#### `fe.ambient_sound` ####

`fe.ambient_sound` is an instance of the `fe.Sound` class and can be used to
control the ambient sound track.




never seen any one use-sing this,    guess ill give it a try..

mysong.playing = true;

Try it like this:
Code: [Select]
fe.ambient_sound.file_name = 01_Phantasy.mp3;
fe.ambient_sound.playing=true;

What is the difference between this code:

Code: [Select]
fe.ambient_sound.file_name = 01_Phantasy.mp3;
fe.ambient_sound.playing=true;

and this one?

Code: [Select]
local bgsound = fe.add_sound ("01_Phantasy.mp3")
bgsound.playing = true

Try it like this:

fe.ambient_sound.file_name = 01_Phantasy.mp3;
fe.ambient_sound.playing=true;

fe.ambient_sound.file_name = ("music/01_Phantasy.mp3");

No idea how they differ in execution. But AM does have a distinct call for ambient.sound so should have some differences as compared to normal sound.

ps: nvm as Jeidone pointed out its consistent and works throughout AM
