This is a bit of an older post, but it is still the first post that comes up in a search.
I didn't want to make a new topic, that being said I have two sound related questions.
Does 'Silent Mode' still load sounds into memory?
I have a question about preloading a sound, can somebody explain what it does?
The Manual and Description in C2 says it downloads an audio file online from a server.
The 'Preload' description uses the term preload a lot.
By Definition preloading means loading a file into memory before using it, and download means getting a file from another computer or server.
You have to download a file from another computer before you can preload it into memory.
An action exists called "Unload Audio".
The description given say it "removes audio from memory", this implies 'Preload' loads audio to memory.
So can someone clear up what Preloading a sound file does?
Is it for downloading audio files from a server and/or preloading local sounds into memory so it plays better?
I have been preloading local sounds before they are needed. I don't know if I need to be doing this or not.
