Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Audio Concurrency Resolution Rules Bugs

I've created a river with a spline mesh and wanted to spawn sounds between the spline points automatically. I gave those sounds a capsule attenuation shape. It looks like this: alt text

Now I thought I restrict to play max. 2 water flowing sound cues and set the 'Max Count' setting in the Sound Concurrency menu to 2.

However, based on the resolution rules in the concurrency menu I get different errors. I started all test at sound location no. 3 and moved to 4. then to 2. and 1.

-Prevent new: 1. and 2. audio is playing. Error note: Error Blueprint Runtime Error: Attempted to access AudioComponent_228 via property CallFunc_SpawnSoundAtLocation_ReturnValue, but AudioComponent_228 is pending kill from function: 'ExecuteUbergraph_BP_River' from node: Set in graph: EventGraph in object: BP_River . The same error note is also for Audio_Component_229 (the fourth spawned audio).

-Stop oldest: 3. and 4. audio is playing. No error. Makes sense.

-Stop farthest, then prevent new: 1. and 4. not playing. Same error as above.

-Stop farthest, then oldest: Same as previous setting.

Stop lowest piority: 1. and 2. not playing. No error.

Stop quietest: 3. and 4. playing normally, but when moving to 2. and 1. there is a sound error, like resonance disaster.

It looks like in some resolution rules the concurrency system tries to kill my spawned sounds and thus they will never be able to play a sound.

Of corse I could set the max sounds to something bigger like 16, but would that not be a waste of audio channels?

Hi MrRabbit, I'm not 100% sure exactly what your implementation is from your description, but I believe these issues may have been solved for 4.12. Unfortunately, if what is going on is what I think is going on, the bugs were discovered after 4.11 was released and they have not been deemed severe enough for a hotfix.

If you can modify the source for a local patch, check out this fix on the 4.12 branch in github:
