Only 4 sound simultaneously?
« on: Mon, Dec 5, 2011 »
Hi guys, quick question...

I've noticed that some of my sounds get swallowed/disappear when many are played simultaneously. I'm using and a FlxSound is playing in the background.

Is there anything I'm missing? Is this an AS3 constraint? A Flixel constraint/bug?
Any help is greatly appreciated.

There is a definite limit, but it's not set by flixel / Flash, more by your sound hardware. I'm guessing it varies dramatically per system. I've never hit the limit with a number as low as 4 mind you. Could it be that you are triggering lots of over-lapping sounds by mistake? Does sound in other flash games sound ok?
