Music sometimes repeats from beginning when pausing game (More Info Provided)
Assigned, WishlistPublic


Music is occasionally repeating upon pausing the game by pressing 'ESC'. As well, dialogue is often repeated too. It does not happen all the time, but often enough to be an issue.

Hello, i was unable to reproduce the issue. Could you please provide more info? Thank you!

Hi there! Unfortunately, it does seem to be happening at random, so hard to reproduce. I find when I'm playing music, the track re-starts whenever I press 'esc'. Would a video help? It's occurred since the update, on both Stable and Dev. Also, happens on dialogue a lot - if you press 'esc' when a character is talking, that line of dialogue will often (not always) repeat. Let me know what I can provide to help resolve the issue :)

I'm having the same issue as well with call custom sounds which used to work for years without fail until now. When I press esc while a custom sound is playing it will repeat from the beginning which can be a big problem.

The way to reproduce this...

inside your mission folder, create a folder named "music" and put a custom ogg type file inside of it, name your sound clip "test" or whatever. Then create a description folder and copy past this inside it...

class CfgMusic
class test
{ name = ""; sound[] = {\music\test.ogg, db+1, 1.0};


^ Now click save, and start your game, and start your mission through the editor. Spawn a blufor soldier, create a trigger and set it for blufor present, inside the onact field copy and paste this and click ok.....

playmusic "test";

^ Hope that helps. Many mission makers use custom sounds so, I think the best thing to do is make a fix where you press esc it pauses all custom sounds together with the game, then press esc again all custom sounds play where they left off with the game. Hope this post helped.

same here... after a track is finished playing, press ESC and the Track will repeat. Its the same if you press ALT-TAB and reopen the game, here the Track will also start again.

See also:

Dialogue is repeating when you press escape too.

And music is cutting out with saved games.

Confirmed - dialogue and music repeat on Stable and Dev.

I can confirm as well

Music and sound are repeating loads for me. Please fix. Thank you.

Unfortunately, this is still occurring for me.

Music and dialogs terrible quiet, music cuts off or repeat after using [esc] menu. I believe it depent of trigger settings - if music is setted to play once - it will be cutted after [esc], if its setted to loop until reaching checkpoint it will be played from begin.

PlayMusic is completely broken and has been since 1.46!

Broken in 1.52.

Hi Adam, have you been able to reproduce the issue above? I am having the same issue and could provide a demo.
