Playsound() scheduling problem ?

Postby Guest » 04 Jun 2007

I use Playsound() statements to indicate market conditions.

Sometimes when 2 or 3 different playsound() statements are triggered at the same time, I only hear one of them played.

THis is the same kind of problem with the Alert() statement before: when a new statement is triggered before the previous one is played, the previous playsound() statement will be skipped.

Please fix this problem so that ALL Playsound() statements are played.

If several alerts are triggered at the same time, how many alert windows do you see?

i think the alerts are ok now.

it is the playsound() I am concerned with.

Do playsound() get scheduled the same way as Alert() now ???


i.e. a new playsound() will not cancel any unplayed playsound() ?

this happened again this morning.

I have multiple sound signals triggered one after another.

an important playsound() was not played.

I think it got kicked out by a subsequent playsound() statement.

please please please check and fix !

kate:
can you verify this is a problem?

e.g.
if the following statements were triggered one after another. Would sound2.wav play if condition3 was triggered while sound1 was being played but before sound2.wav started?


if condition1 then playsound("sound1.wav");
if condition2 then playsound("sound2.wav");
if condition3 then playsound("sound3.wav");

Our developers will consider what can be done with the order of playsounds.
