0007186: Looping Sounds Stops
The sounds inside a prim stops looping when you make a change to the script thats looping the sound. In normal cases the changes should take effect immediatly aft rthe changes were made but instead the sound stops looping when it should be looping once more with the new changes
Create this script
default {
    state_entry() {
        llLoopSound( llGetInventoryName( INVENTORY_SOUND,0 ), 0.5 );

//toss a sound inside a prim and then it will loop then after that change the 0.5 at the end of script to maby 1.0 and save script the sound will now cease to loop when it should be looping at its max volume now the only way to get it back is to restart sim.
No tags attached.

I would also like to mention another problem with loopsound.
If you put a music loop (eg: techno loop) in a moving object (eg: RoolerCoaster), the tempo of the loop (bpm) is not met, it varies speed.

Still present in r/26082.

The sound stops when (for example) the volume parameter is changed and the script saved and reset, but I found relogging as a user brought the sound back, rather than needing to restart the sim.

LOL! i like it when sound tempo speeds up or slow down depending lolol but yes this issue can be anoying the only solution is to restart the sim :(

I have seen this for a while. I've personally found that "kick starting" the sound produces a loop that works properly (Well it loops anyway :P)


string sound = "sound_here";

float volume = 0.3;

loopSound(string s, float v)
    //Stop any sounds playing first
    //Get the sound playing
    llPlaySound(s, v);
    llPlaySound(s, v);
    llPlaySound(s, v);
    llPlaySound(s, v);
    //Now loop it
    llLoopSound(s, v);

        loopSound(sound, volume);


It's definitely not an elegant workaround but it seems to work for me.

"sound tempo" is not a simulator issue. just viewer ideia of doppler effect I guess..
