Sometimes Audio not loading
« on: May 11, 2018, 04:51:09 pm »
This has been bugging me for a while...sometimes, when I load my application, the sound won't load and by won't load I mean
sf::Sound::loadFromFile() return false;
why does this happen ?, also if code is needed, please tell me

Sometimes as in? Do you run it from different working directories?

sometimes as in, there are times when it successfully worked, and there are times when it won't load ( I used two sf::SoundBuffer ), both of them fails to load.
I run it like this
i.e. my .exe is in C:\Program Files\game\game.exe
so my sound is in C:\Program Files\game\media\sound.wav

Are you using a .wav file? They have problems for me, .ogg seems to work fine.
