No sounds at first
« on: December 08, 2017, 06:20:03 AM »
I am running AM 2.3 as the shell in WinXP SP3.  When it boots, I don't get any sound effects in AM. Once I launch a game, the sounds work fine in that game, and upon exiting, sound works in AM, too.  If I exit the frontend and reopen it, sounds work from the start, which makes the issue appear to be related to the fact that AM is the shell.  It should be noted, however, that the espeak plugin works right from the beginning, even though the other sounds do not.  Thoughts?

My cabinet is over a decade old  ;)

Thanks for the suggestion, but I am running the "no-console" version.

For what it's worth, in addition to the UI movement sounds and video snap sounds not working, each video snap will only play through once and quit instead of looping, like it should.  After I launch a game and return to AM, however, it all works as it's supposed to.
